This is my second visit to St. Kitts and I enjoyed it better this time because we stayed at island paradise. We stayed at unit 6C, which has two bedrooms each with a private badroom. The apartment also has full kitchen, livingroom with tv, telephone and some fans. It does not have internet but you can just walk a few minutes to the nearby coffee shop and use the internet there.
This apartment had a/c in the bedrooms only. So I would not recommend to accomodate any people in the livingroom because it is so humid and hot I do not think anybody could sleep peacefully without a/c. Bedrooms included several beach towels and one of the bedrooms had a small cooler, a beach umbrella, an ironing board and iron.
The kitchen was fully equiped: cuttlery, salad bowls, barbecue utensils, cooking board and cooking book and a few unexpired seasonnings.
The pool was very clean and the lawn mowed. There is also a grill area with chairs and tables right by the pool.
The beach, in my opinion, is one of the best in the island. You just put on your bathing suit and walk to it. You don't even need to bring your own towel if you don't want. They have a few lounge chairs by the beach and, when you return from it, there is a shower so you can clean yourself from sand before going back to the apartment.
Bring your goggles because you can see fish in the water, especially by the Marriot's second line of rocks, big fish!!!
We went to the Duty Free shop to get some liquor and the prices were very attractive. There is also a clothing/souvenir store where you can even purchase from a pen to underwear.
PJ's restaurant is very good. Try the simple peperoni pizza.
The one thing I agree with one of the reviews is that you must be careful and always lock your doors, even if you just walk to the pool. We heard from local students that crime in St. Kitts seems to be a major problem lately. Our unit had bars. We locked them at all times and fortunately, everything went fine.
Overall I loved my stay. I loved walking to the beach and just sit there and watch the ocean. A lot of hotels in st. Kitts have very nice view but, in my opinion, this is one of the places with the best beaches. If you are a beach person I would definitely recommend you to stay at Island Paradise.
