We used a travel book to find and visit the Golden Lemon for lunch: I should have checked Tripadvisor too! We also wanted to see the lodgings for a possible future visit. As previously reported, the restaurant is no longer operational. What's more, the building was boarded up and quite deserted. We walked the grounds and it is in bad... More

We took the ferry from Nevis and drove half way around St. Kitts for the breakfast that had been raved about in Frommers. We were disappointed and quite hungry to learn that there is no restaurant any more. From a quick observation, I would agree that it must have been a grand place at one time, but the property seemed... More

Royal treatment by attentive management/staff for our surprise 25th Anniversary return July 4-11 (lunch only in '99). Quiet, picturesque, private villa & pool. We'd go again in a hearbeat! Gorgeous sea views & gardens, central location from which to sightsee. Great place to kickback & unplug from a hectic pace!

Wonderful, Fabulous, Beautiful! Only a few of the things I could say about The Golden Lemon in St. Kitts. It would take a year to explain how wonderful our stay at The Golden Lemon became. We were greeted at the airport by Solomon our guide and as it turned out a good friend. At The Golden Lemon we were welcomed... More

Our trip began with Solomon, the Golden Lemon's driver (since he was 15 years old), picking us up from the airport. During our stay, he was vital in taking us whenever and wherever we wanted to go on the island. My new husband and I are busy professionals and couldn't have found a better honeymoon spot than the Golden Lemon.... More

We travel to the Caribbean for an authentic West Indian experience: a small inn or villa setting with a private pool; a patio or balcony from which we can lose ourselves gazing at the Caribbean Sea, feeding the birds, reading, sipping early morning coffee before breakfast, laughing; alfresco dining (is there any other way?) to savor the culinary delights unique...

The Golden Lemon is not for everyone. If you are into casinos, fighting for lounge chairs with hundreds of guests, carousing until late at night, food that you could get anywhere, or a cookie cutter beach resort that could be anywhere, DO NOT stay here. Please go immediatly to any big resort chain. However, if you appreciate history, graciousness, meeting... More

My wife and I wanted to get away from it all for a few days. And we wanted to do so in the Carribean where often it can seem like one giant theme resurant or that you are just a walking ATM for the locals. St. Kitts was perfect especially since we stayed away from the hideous Marriott that with... More

We have recently returned from a one week stay at the Golden Lemon. For those who have never been before, don't go. For those who have been there in the past, it would be a very sad experience to return now. The inn has apparently been sold and was basically empty. It was a shadow of what must have been... More

Twenty-five years our we were married at The Golden Lemon. We just returned from celebrating our silver anniversary there. Both my husband and I were a little concerned that things wouldn't be as we remembered them. Boy, were we surprised ! Arthur and his staff were as terrific as we had remembered. Think they remembered us as well. The Beach... More
