We traded thru Interval International and it was of only two places that we have traded that we will never go back to (we have been members for 15 years!). First of all, there is a lot of construction going on at this place. The noise starts around 8am and ends at 5pm. We just made sure we left for the entire day, everyday. The i bedroon "apartment" was small. The kitchen very small and inadequate. The refrigerator was really tiny, no oven, the dishwasher was also very tiny (think Minnie and Mickey Mouse size). When we got there we arrived to find the following: 2 plates, several forks, no knives, 2 pans, no can opener, no blender, no hair dryer..........you get the idea. The gentleman who brought us up, peter, was vey nice and ried to help us. He managed to find us a hair dryer, some silverware, plates etc. The best thing he found us was an old ice cooler which we used on the patio the entire week because of the size of the refrigerator. We spent $50 for ice that week but the inconvience of running to the store for ice everyday was the worse part.
Rge deck faced the mountains (thank goodness) so at least we didn't have to watch the construction (just hear it). The deck was about 20 feet by 40 feet!!! I am serious! Peter said "well you can have a party out here" I said, "well, not really, we don't have any dishes or silverware". Don't get me wrong, it was a nice deck but it was stange to have such a small living area and such a huge deck. By the way, no cushions for the lounge chair.
Ok, enough about the "Club". St. Kitts is beautiful.....mountains, rainforests, great beaches. We had a car (you really need one here) and we were able to go to a different place everyday. Our suggestions: Reggae Bar on the beach, snorkeling in front of the "proposed" aquarium (really unbelievable!....bring your own equipment), Mr. X Shiggidy Shack at Frigate Bay (this was the only place that had any entertainment...on Thursdays they have live music, bonfire on the beach and a fireeater), Turtle Beach Bar and Grill (good place to spend the day).
Unfortunately for the nice people in St. kitts the island was deserted and we went at the high season! The good news, no waiting for a table at the restaurants. The restaurants were ok......try Bobsys, Ciao (good Italian), P.J's pizza. Some of the restaurants in Fodors 2008 were gone (Island Spice). We never got to the restaurants in the northern part of St. Kitts because it would have been an hours ride each way! Not fun at night after a couple of glasses of wine. There are supposed to be some good ones.
We spent on night at Timothy Beach Resort....got the roon thur travelocity and it was only $115 and right on the beach but nothing fancy (alittle run down actually) but what can you expect for $115? Hope this review helps. By the way, grocery stores are a bit limited in goods even for the Caribbean.
Also, we spent one whole day at the Marriott down the street.......very, very nice!
