Situated in Castries, a few steps from Choc Beach, Villa Beach Cottages features accommodation with an outdoor swimming pool, free private parking, a garden and barbecue facilities. Beachfront resort, beautiful location, small and comfortable. The staff was very helpful and made reservations for all our lunches and dinners around the island.
Situated 1.2 km from Trouya Beach, Apartment Espoir offers an outdoor swimming pool, a garden and air-conditioned accommodation with a patio and free WiFi. The apartment was nice, clean and cool, having a ceiling fan as well as AC, and a mosquito net which was a life saver. Then kitchen came equipped with everything we needed for self catering and the hosts were always available should we have needed anything else. Beach and shop were in walking distance and so were bus and taxi stops for short trips to Rodney Bay or Castries. When we weren't out and about, we also loved sitting at the pool or elsewhwere in the beautiful garden.
Harbor View Inn is located outside of Castries Town Centre. It is just 500 metres from the Caribbean Sea and offers guests spacious apartments with free Wi-Fi. The manager was exceptionally helpful and actually managed to sort a problem for me re my departure Covid test which had not turned up on time. He walked with me to the test centre and berated them until I got my test result. He certainly went above and beyond what I would have expected of him. The apartment was clean and exactly what I wanted. Always something happening outside, perfect view of the cruise ships coming in, they are so close you feel you are on them, very close to the cargo harbour, big ships coming in and being unloaded, and right across from the airport, so the planes can be seen coming in and leaving. The most interesting balcony I have ever sat on!

Located in Castries in the Castries Region, 50 km from Le Diamant, Casa del Vega a Little Peace of Heaven boasts a sun terrace and views of the sea. Guests can enjoy the on-site restaurant. I love the privacy. And the amenities. Comparable to a five star resort at a fraction of the cost.
Offering an outdoor pool, Palm Cottage is located between Castries and Rodney Bay, overlooking the sandy Labrelotte bay. The beach is only a 3-minutes' walk away.

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!
