Stayed 5 nights at end of March and loved the location and character of the hotel. True there are signs now is time for an upgrade and I would really like to return when this is complete as the positive attitude of the staff, current location and an upgraded structure should produce a winning formula. Seldom have I met a... More

I stayed at the OTI for four days and I have mixed feelings. This is a place that could be so much better. First the good. The location is fine for access to town. Being elevated there are wonderful views of the port and Nevis in the distance. The property is unique in that it is on three or four... More

Enjoyed the facilities, everyone very friendly. Was surprised to here they are closing this year for renovations. I saw a few things that could be updated, definitely nothing looked like the whole facility needed closed. Look forward to staying again next year.

This hotel was clean and the staff were friendly. Basseterre is a short 15 minute walk away and the hotel provides a shuttle buss to a local beach. The only down side was the food and drink in the hotel was very over priced. There are only 3-4 restaurants nearby also, meaning dining options are limited. We stayed only 2... More

Beautiful grounds and view. Fisherman's wharf had a gorgeous setting and delicious food. The rooms definitely need to be updated. The hotel is really spread out with lots of steps, not very accessible.

We really enjoyed our stay in this resort. They are taking an older hotel and making updates to it a little at time. They have updated the main pool area and it is beautiful. The Fisherman's Warf restaurant is also very nice. We had the most awesome lobster dinner there. I would highly recommend the Lump Lobster on the menu.... More

We too stayed at OTC mid February but, unlike some recent reviewers, had a much more positive experience during our stay at this currently 3 star hotel. Yes the room décor and fittings were tired and we would have preferred hotter showers but our room was clean and had a pleasant balcony with a view of a pool, bay and... More

First the good. Better than expected view from the balcony. Housekeeping did a great job. All of the appliances worked, even though they showed quite a bit of wear. The bed mattress was comfortable, but it had a huge lump on the lower left edge. The staff was helpful and most of the public areas were nice and had very... More

I have not stayed here for two years and was thrilled by the really attentive service and the improvement in food during my recent stay. Staff are a real plus and the extra training is evident. Rooms need work but the hotel closes this year for a complete refurb. It will be a treat when it reopens in time for... More
