Poolside dining at a serene Jasmine's restaurant exceeded expectations. Steak & seafood entrees very good as was the service. A native bird and tiny kittens scavenging for crumbs added to the experience. We'd stayed in the condos on our 1st trip. Very clean with excellent island and coastal views!

Small, intimate, lovely, original hotel in the middle of the Southeast Penninsula on St.Kitts....you can see the Caribbean Sea on one side and the Atlantic Ocean on the other...Stayed 2 weeks here in 2008....Not one of those massive line up AI's here...Wonderful staff and the best GM ever...Guess things have changed since I've been there...not sure when the negative reviews...

This hotel is in need of an Extreme Makeover. I found it to be outdated, tired, lazy, dark, gloomy and felt unsafe. This is unfortunate because the area is very green, quiet and gorgeous. The staff were friendly in general. The room itself is very basic and tired. Fixtures were falling off, shower rod kept falling down taking the curtain... More

Was an okay joint; relatively clean, but a bit worn down. Had $120 stolen out of my room- yes, my room mate didn't lock the door- by a staff member, whom I woke up to find hurtling himself over the balcony and disappearing around the corner before I could get a look at him. The office lady shrugged at me... More

I stayed at this hotel approximately 13 years ago and was very pleased with my stay there at that time, so I decided to book a stay with this hotel again. When I arrived at the hotel the first room that I was given was quite horrible (3rd floor hillside facing room). The wooden steps leading to the room were... More

I am here for a week of business meetings and my team and I were disappointed to find out that there are no desks in the rooms. It's definitely not set up for business travelers. As others have mentioned, this hotel has seen better days and seems to have bit hit pretty hard by the current economic situation worldwide. We... More

This place needs to be closed. Upon arrival with a pre paid week through Skyauction, the front desk person was surprised that we had a kitchen room. She called an elderly gentleman(manager?) and when he was told that we had a pre paid kitchen room he looked like a deer caught in headlights. He brought us to a room where... More

I stayed in room 303b on April 26 with my partner to celebrate his birthday. The waitress, bartender and chef were exceptional. They were always smiling and so pleasant and helpful. I would reccommend this hotel anytime. A big thank you to Dorette for a lovely room :) Email: lenicepren@hotmail.com

We stayed at the Frigate Bay Resort during our first visit to St. Kitts 3 years ago but were disappointed this time around. To start, when I inquired about the excellent manager's welcome night that we had recalled, I was told at the front desk (when I paid for my first few days in advance) that it still existed on...
