Facing the beachfront, Villa Beach Cottages offers 3-star accommodation in Castries and has an outdoor swimming pool, garden and BBQ facilities. The staff and owner greeted us like we were family, and were very informative and helpful in arranging tours and things to do and see, as well as a little history and cultural information. We were upgraded on our room, and it far exceeded our expectations for comfort, cleanliness, view, amenities, security, and service. If it hadn't been for the weather and COVID restrictions, it would have been one of our all-time best vacations! But we knew this going in, and we, and the property were prepared; well stocked for provisions and good books for rainy days. Any issues were addressed immediately. They even brought a doctor to the property to do a Covid test for our return to the states. The location is almost perfect except that it is right off a busy road. The beach is lovely!

This is a small city and therefore very easy to get around. The market is vibrant and truly represents St Lucia culture. One can get a delicious, hot, traditional St Lucian meal right there in the market. The bus system is fairly good and it is easy to get from Castries to other parts of the island.
Castries is a good stepping off point for St Lucia, it is a very industrial town, safe yet basic, clean yet crusty. Some great restaurants, Gobblers, Pink Plantation,Coal Pot and Brown Sugar, none of them easy access but worth the effort
Castries is full of local life but it's not a beautiful city and the sights are few. It can be a good starting point for excursions to the northern part of the island but it is the southern part of St. Lucia that really has the natural beauty. The inequality of the people in St.Lucia is very obvious in Castries which also makes the city feel insecure at night. You really don't want to walk around after dark which makes you depending on a rental car or taxis when you go to restaurants for dinner. The infrastructure of St.Lucia is a challenge. If you rent a car you have to be very careful due to the bad road conditions with plenty of potholes. If you are planning to take taxis around the island it can be very expensive. Be sure to double check the price with the driver before you leave on a tour. The local buses are cheap and the passengers generally very friendly but it will be next to impossible to bring luggage. The best restaurants in Castries are found around the small yacht harbour. Especially "Brown Sugar" is very good with friendly service, great food, nice views and reasonably prices. "Coal Pot" is also good but twice as expensive as Brown Sugar.
Good market in Castries for shopping, but other parts of st Lucia are much prettier to visit I.e souffrie or Rodney bay.
Our location was great i.e. just above the cruise ship terminal and the associated restaurants /bars. However....the rest of Castries was not exactly tourist friendly.
Marigot is outside main town of Castries and not easy to get too as ferry or water taxi the only transportation to hotel.
Castries is a nice town. There are a couple bad areas that you need to stay away from and local bus drivers will let you know about these areas. It is a more touristy spot so expect some locals to try and sell you things like jewelry, trips to beaches, etc. Check out Gobble... this was a great breakfast spot we went to multiple times. Eggs, bacon, toast, delicious coffee, amazing pastries like mini cheesecakes. Definitely go here!
I preferred Castries over Rodney Bay. Rodney Bay was incredibly touristy. Mr Peter Philips was amazing showing us around the island - Highly recommend getting in contact with him. There are no frills but he ensures you are well looked after and see the real Saint Lucia - his mobile number is - 001 758 716 4196.
Castries is a little rough, and very dangerous at night. Travellers should stay in Rodney Bay which is much nicer and tourist oriented.
Although in the town, there are beaches nearby to relax you after the hustle and bustle of shopping in the town of Castries. Great buys and if you haggle enough, you will get a good deal. Lovely wood carvings to take back home. Very talented people. Restaurants around Castries are absolutely amazing and you must try the local food products, which be a crying shame not too!
