Very British

This was a old plantation turned into a very British hotel & restaurant. The grounds are stunning and the staff very helpful. Smoking IS permitted around the pool area

We made a real effort to travel right across the island as the Royal Palm had been highly recommended. I am sure it must be a beautiful place to stay but the food was not great. We were the last to be seated and seemed to be overlooked by the staff who did not seem very efficient or motivated by... More

We had lunch at The Royal Palm Restaurant. The setting and atmosphere could not have been better. The food was quite good but really given the magnificent views and the beautiful grounds of Ottley's Plantation I am not sure I even noticed the taste! If you are not staying at Ottley's a stop for lunch or dinner is a must.... More

We had Sunday Brunch at Ottley's last year and then again two Sundays in a row this year. Everything is delicious, especially the chicken crepes and the complimentary mimosas or rum punch. With lovely scenery, spectacular views, pleasant staff and fabulous food, makes you wish every day was Sunday!

Went there for a lunch on a sunday morning after having discovered the area in some hiking, the place is great to chill out while enjoying some really good food. Service is fast and staff is very welcoming. You can then hike in the area, from gentle digestion walk to some more serious trails. Marty will kindly provide any info... More

We arrive a bit early and walked the grounds before dinner. Beautiful grounds and amazing views of the ocean. We relaxed on the patio with drinks and were then taken to our table. The chef sent braised pork on a crostini to our table which was delicious. It was have made an amazing dinner just having several more of those!... More

Drove around the island and stopped here for lunch. Service was really good and the views of the grounds was beautiful. The food was a good, but I feel pricey for what you're getting. Afterwards we strolled through the rain forest trail and saw some monkeys jumping in the trees. Like the other poster mentioned, the sign isn't very large... More

Having stayed at Ottley's Plantation in the past, I knew how great the food at the Royal Palm is, so when I recently had a port of call in St Kitts while on a cruise, my friends and I went there for a wonderful lunch. Everyone was so pleased with how good everything was and the portion size, plus the... More
