“Best holiday ever!”
I cannot fault my stay at RBS. The suites are very clean, immaculately maintained and well equipped. The location is just perfect for me - within easy reach of all the amenities of Rodney Bay, but just far enough away that it is quiet and peaceful in the evenings. The spectacular views and private pool are a real treat too. Staying with my young son, my stay could have been very stressful, but despite the suites being aimed more at couples, anything I needed was quickly provided, and from the moment we arrived, Gale and Hector could not have been more accommodating and helpful. Hector also sorted out a car rental for me with the minimum of fuss. With regard to car rental, I rented a car because I think the walk up the hill would have been a struggle with a pushchair, but if you are staying without children, it would be perfectly feasible to manage without a car. The daily cleaning service is great - lovely to come home to an immaculate room every day. It is also worth mentioning the laundry service - I noticed that previous reviews thought it was expensive, at 40EC. The laundromat in Rodney Bay charges 45EC a load, plus 25EC for a spin dry, so I think the washed, dried and folded service available at RBS is a positive bargain, and travelling with a 16 month old, I took full advantage! There are a couple of beaches within easy reach of RBS, if you want a busier beach with all tourist amenities, Reduit Beach would fit the bill, or alternatively, Pigeon Point is a quieter, more local beach (my preference). Within the suite, there are numerous leaflets and brochures with information and ideas of activities and places to go - it is well worth taking the trip down to Soufriere, and Marigot Bay is also lovely. I found my way on my own without any problems, but again Hector is always on hand if you need directions or help organising excursions. Overall, I can't speak highly enough of my experience at RBS, and I am already looking for bargain flights to come back soon! Thank you for a wonderful stay Gale and Hector, and look forward to seeing you again.
“Great location with great hosts.”
A great location for a lovely relaxing time. Wonderful view of the harbour from the pool deck. Very comfortable and we'll appointed apartment, the place has everything you need. Our hosts, Hector and Gale were realy friendly and very helpful including arranging car hire and taxis. We really had a lovely time, nice and quite but close enough to the town for resteraunts and bars, of which there are plenty.
Response from the owner Thanks guys. It was indeed our pleasure to make your holiday a memorable one. Thanks for taking the time to share your feedback. All the very best. Gale and Hector
“Perfect is all we can say!”
We spent the most amazing two weeks in the beautiful Rodney bay apartments...and it was the best holiday we have ever had. To start the location was perfect, just a 10 minute walk (down hill) to Rodney Bay Village and about 15 minutes to the small Marina. Both of which had lovely restaurants and bars that we took great advantage of. From the apartments you could see both the village and the Marina and the sea...we took so many photos as we couldn't get over the views! The views were so good that we only went to the beach twice as there is not many places you can sit with no one else by the pool looking at those type of views! The apartments themselves were spacious, clean and very well equiped, which we found ideal as we did quite abit of cooking in the apartments. There was everything you could need and Gale even provided us with a little goodie basket so we had some bits when we arrived. There is also a little supermarket about a 5 minute walk away where you can pick up all the little bits you need. And finally the best thing about this place are the hosts Gale and Hector. These guys made our holiday perfect, they are always about if you needed them but not so much that it felt intrusive. Gale even took me to her local GP when I needed to go, she made the appointment and took us on a Saturday morning - a lovely gesture which I will never forget! They were perfect hosts and we had a brill night with them at the 'Jump up'...I would not hear a bad word said about them! We just can't wait to go back (and we harldy ever say that as there are so many places we want to explore). Thank you again Gale and Hector for such a wonderful holiday, I would reccomend the apartments and St Lucia to anyone!
Response from the owner We MISS you guys... Hurry and come back and bring mum and dad! Thanks so much for your kind review. It was a pleasure looking after you guys... Anytime.! All the best and see you guys soonish.. Lol
My niece and I spent a wonderful week staying at this apartment, it's in a fantastic location close enough to walk to the local shops and restaurants. The view from the apartment is truly amazing , it's definitely what you would call panoramic views! The apartment is clean and tidy, the room is small but perfectly adequate for a weeks stay. There is a second apartment next door so the pool area is shared, however it still feels exclusive and private. Gale and Hector are amazing hosts they definitely made our stay all the more enjoyable! I would recommend this apartment it was a wonderful holiday!!
“Lovely hosts, fantastic staff and views to die for”
From the moment I first made contact, Gale and Hector provided a fantastic service. Angus and his driver provided an efficient, reliable and informative transfer to and from the airport. Sam who came in to clean, was exceptionally helpful and always willing to work round us. Gale was managing the apartments on her own for most of our visit, and is one of the most friendly people you will ever meet; always there if needed, but totally focused on her guests privacy. You definately won't find as high quality, good value accommodation anywhere else in St Lucia, or a better team of people to deal with. Thanks Gale. Hopefully we'll see more of Hector next time!
Response from the owner Hey Sue and Richard, thanks for sharing your thoughts. It was lovely having you guys stay with us... And thanks for our lovely chats :o) working on the tree... Lol! Take good care and hope to see you both again!
“The best vacation ever!”
We decided to book our very much needed vacation renting an apartment instead of opting for those boring all-inclusive resorts and the decision was so worth it! Not only did we save on exorbitant hotel costs but we actually received bigger living quarters, a private pool and better service than any 5 star hotel in the area could provide! From the moment I began the inquiry process, Gale & Hector, the owners, answered my many questions thoroughly and gave me a sense of security when booking. We took the chance and were rewarded by a spectacular luxury suite and well-maintained grounds and pool. The views of Rodney Bay & Marina & Pigeon Point are to die for! The suite has everything you need including a well-equipped kitchen where we cooked for ourselves(grocery stores are within walking distance to buy food and supplies). We are foodies and we must say both Rodney Bay, Marigot Bay and Soufriere provided an excellent selection of top quality eating experiences. The Friday Fish Fry up in Gros Islet is really nice with freshly caught, grilled fish and lots of the local Piton beer. Hector provided us with a mobile phone for the time we stayed there and had a wonderful driver angus pick us up from the airport, who also took us on a drive and tour down to Soufriere for a reasonable price. The suite was immaculately clean and I felt secure within their residence (the owners live above so if you need anything they are there for you). The walk to the downtown boardwalk and restaurants is about 15-20 minutes but totally doable and gave us some much needed exercise. Reduit Beach-one of the most beautiful beaches there-is about a 25 minute walk but sometimes we just stayed at the pool as it was so relaxing. Gale & Hector are just the best! Definitely recommend to all those cool couples who love the sea, great food & rum and want a romantic getaway! We will be back...
Response from the owner Thanks Dani and Marco... we miss you guys and your wonderful italian food. We know we will meet again. all the very best G and H
“Best place with the best view”
The apartman, the owner Hector and the beach is excellent
“The Place to Stay- Exceptional service & Fantastic vistas”
Gale & Hector have done an exceptional job of making their apartments cozy with a modern flair and added sense of security. I truly enjoyed my 9 days on the island and it is always additional comfort knowing that your accomodations exceed your expectations. Benefits of staying at Rodney Heights View Point: modern appliances and amenities , walking distance from the Rodney Bay shopping & restaurant district, 5 - 10 min from the beach, the view from the deck is breath taking, pool surrounded by lush beauty ( FYI: speakers at poolside, so enjoy a swim to your favorite music), relaxing atmosphere, the pictures do not do this property justice. Come and experience for yourself. I will definitely stay here again! Gale & Hector Thanks for being great hosts!

Response from the owner Hey Ingrid, it was indeed a pleasure meeting you both. thank you for taking the time to share your feedback - very much appreciated. Hope to see you on our little island again.
“Wonderful week, would highly recommend it.”
My husband and I spent a week at the Rodney Bay Suites in early November. The suite was spacious and comfortable and having the outside decking where we ate breakfast, and the lovely swimming pool to relax by was a real bonus. The suite was cleaned every day which was unusual in a rented apartment, but very welcome. Hector and Gale were wonderful hosts. There if you needed them but not intrusive at all. We hired a jeep for the whole week so we could explore the island, and Hector arranged this for us. We would recommend Rodney Bay Suites to family and friends, and if we visit St Lucia again we will stay here. Loved it.
Response from the owner Hey Sally, thanks for sharing your feedback. We hope to see you both again on island. Hope you got some really nice pics/memories. Best, G
