MacLellan & Associates is a full-service, bespoke development and investment advisory firm, established in 1997, servicing the hospitality, tourism and real estate sectors across the Caribbean and Atlantic Islands. The firm specializes in comprehensive development and redevelopment support services, buy- / sell-side representation, work-outs and asset management.
As the largest advisory firm actually based in the region – with consultants located in St. Lucia, Bahamas, St. Maarten and Trinidad – greater focus is placed on direct field research and long-term data collection, primarily through personal contacts and local networking, rather than over‐reliance on desktop research.
MacLellan & Associates’ team bring to the table extensive and diverse expertise, derived from hands-on international management experience at senior levels. That expertise ranges across conceptual and feasibility studies, hotel / resort design, operations analysis and leisure residential sales and marketing to brand / operator search and appointment, project management, expert witness, investment appraisals, transactions and work-outs

Due to our decades of experience in the islands, we have in-depth knowledge and understanding of the region in its full diversity of history, culture, politics and socio-economic factors.
MacLellan Associates is the most long standing purely Caribbean Hospitality Consultancy service in the region. We have been in operating since 1997 and have provided services and advice in all English speaking islands and to a wide range of developers, investors, hotel operators and designers.
The Caribbean represents a unique region of the world which in turn presents unique challenges. Over the last 20 years MacLellan Associates has developed a reputation for honesty, integrity and thoroughness and by being “on the ground” we are acutely aware of differences and pitfalls that arise in the different island states as well as the generic macro and micro economics of the region.
The consultancy has a wide range of embedded relationships with international hotel operating companies, regional and international financial institutions, architects and engineering companies, venture capitalists and other providers of debt and equity finance and marketing specialists for both resort and real estate developments.
We have worked in most English speaking islands in the region as well as Dominican Republic St.Martin/ St.Maarten, and most recently Roatan, Honduras. We are based in St.Lucia with satellite offices in the Bahamas, Trinidad, St Maarten and London
