“"Beyond my expectations"”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed 1 week ago

The Ottley's Plantation offers a gorgeous view of the Atlantic Ocean, Mt. Liamuiga volcano, the rain forest, and splendid on-site gardens, nature trail, and sightings of exotic birds, vervet monkeys, and donkeys...Gracie had just given birth to her nursing boy 2 days prior to arrival. It was fun to see how he looked just before we departed. Tammy greeted us upon arrival and gives a great introductory tour of the grounds and guest offerings. Meals were outstanding. Guest events help make everyone feel at home. Janice makes all the beautiful arrangements in the restaurant area. Marty and Donna greet guests and really show genuine interest in their guests and have great insight into other areas of the island to explore. I hope to return to St. Kitts one day and cannot imagine staying anywhere else. Eight days of pure delight. Our stay in the Great House did not disappoint. True island charm, beautiful antiques, lovely artwork. The housekeeping staff is very attentive and friendly. If you cannot stay here please enjoy the grounds and a delicious meal at the Royal Palm restaurant. Foodies delight!

Room Tip: Room 6 in the Great House has outstanding, unobstructed views. Pure heaven on earth.

I can't fault Ottley's Plantation. My wife and I found the staff delightful, the food (and cocktails) delicious, the rooms very comfortable, the location and gardens beautiful. The only downside was we had to leave. We're really looking forward to returning.

Room Tip: They are all good rooms!

We happened upon Ottley's by chance when driving round the island. As we only stopped for tea we expected little.

Quite the opposite - the staff were welcoming and generous and made us feel like welcome guests.

We spent some time looking around and viewing some of the rooms. We will, without doubt, return for a longer stay on our next trip to St Kitts.

Ottley's was the perfect place for a relaxing 10 days in the Caribbean and a great place to explore the island from. Every member of staff was welcoming, friendly and helpful and genuinely a delight to be around. Although there is lots to explore on the island, we easily wiled away a few days without leaving Ottley's estate, just relaxing by the pool, eating lots of the beautiful food on offer and exploring the grounds. From what we heard from other people we met on St Kitts, Ottley's was the best place to stay on the island.

In my multiple years of travel, never has a hotel/inn taken the time to be sure you are having a nice time. It is clearly an attitude that filters down from ownership as they are always there, warm and welcoming. We stayed in a room in the great house and our room was extremely spacious with comfortable beds. The grounds are beautiful and it a great place to get away and decompress.
The inn is quite isolated from most of the things to do on the island but they do have a great free shuttle after breakfast that will take you into town or the beaches and pick you back up. Due to the isolation of the inn we found ourselves eating dinner every night at their restaurant which was quite good and varied their menu nightly. I would consider ditching the in room coffee/tea makers for a communal service in the great room before breakfast. A great stay and look forward to our return.

We stayed in February and thought the whole experience was brilliant. The staff are very attentive, the food is excellent, the room was oustanding and the grounds were immaculate. We could not fault it. We only stayed 2 nights but wished we had stayed longer. We would certainly return and even make a special effort to go back. Also that part of the island is beautiful so much pretty than the beach area.
Paritcular thanks to Karen and Donna for making us so welcome.

Room Tip: We stayed in the main house and loved it

Set in beautifully kept grounds, including a mini rain forest, the public rooms and bedrooms in the Plantation house are tastefully decorated. Bedrooms are very well equipped and serviced several times a day. The owners are much in evidence and every guest receives a personal welcome. Nothing is too much trouble for the staff and "you are welcome" is said with meaning and a big smile. The inn is in a slightly isolated position so the daily return shuttle to town and beaches is very welcome. The food in the restaurant is tasty with efficient. More local fish on the menu would have been good. My only negative was that the bar did not stay open after dinner.

Room Tip: Superior rooms are well worth the extra money as they are so much larger. All the superior rooms in...
