“peaceful”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 3, 2013

Before booking this place I went to tripadvisor to look at the reviews. Some of the negative reviews were really scary. But given the place had a lot of good reviews I went ahead and booked a seven night stay for me and my girlfriend.

The place was everything I was hoping it would be. It has a gorgeous beach with a breathtaking sunset almost every day. Very peaceful. There are less than 10 people on the beach at any one time (we traveled in May which is off season so this might not be the case during the peak winter seasons). The room we stayed in (Dolphin Cove) was right by the beach and the restaurant. It had a wire mesh enclosed patio with direct view of the ocean. The room was clean and very comfortable. The staff cleaned the room every day promptly and thoroughly.

The restaurant was very good. They try to change the menu every day (specially for dinner). We didn't eat one bad/poor meal the whole time we were there. The staff is real nice and friendly. The owner John was also very pleasant.

Granted people have different experiences, I still think some of the negative reviews on this place were too harsh and/or unreasonable.

I would recommend this place to a friend and would definitely go back again. One last general comment is, I found things to be on the expensive side at the resort and the island generally. But I guess you get what you pay for. If you it was cheap then it would be too touristy and too busy.

What can one say about Paradise! Worth every minute. Great place, great people great stay. We look forward to our next return trip. The staff were very friendly and make you feel at home. Great that every effort is made to put on some live music. We were very lucky to coincide with some really special musicians to add to john's very own special talent as resident musician and manager. Well done all round and thoroughly recommended

This was our third time at Oualie and as before,it was a great stay. The rooms are clean and anything you need all you have to do is to ask Faith or Pat or whom ever is at the desk. We had breakfast included, which I would recommend. The omelette are delicious, pancakes light and fluffy, and breakfast tacos (my favorite) very tasty! We had the seafood buffet which was great, the best seafood bisque I have ever eating. It was even better than the bisque we had at Nisbet Plantation.
We dove with Ellis at Scuba Safaris...great operation, safety minded, they pointed out a lot of critters. Everyone on the staff is great: Duece, Myron, (made us delicious Lion Fish), Ryan, and Valerie.

Room Tip: Cottages on the beach, just a few steps from the sand and water.

Having travelled to Nevis many times, we always find ourselves coming back to Oualie Beach. When you need to find somewhere to wind down, recharge the batteries and have a completely chilled time, this is the place to come. We have just returned from a week's holiday, yes you may think it's a long way to travel from the UK, but it's worth every penny. From the time you step on to the quay following the excitement of travelling across the water from St Kitts, taking on board the view of Mount Nevis, time seem's to stand still. The accommodation is set right on it's own beach and the service we endured was first class, being made very welcome by all who worked there, including members of the Learwood family and their friends. Within the open air restaurant there are many special evenings put on for the quests, varying from 3 course meals to buffets to bbq's, served with a good choice of wine, local beers and this may sound a bit odd, but lovely ice cold Nevis tap water, to us this tasted so refreshing. On a few evenings within the bar, entertainment is put on by the locals and members of the staff. This usually turns into a jamming session, especially with the in take of a few local ice cold beers - the night seems to go so quick when you're enjoying yourselves. Then it's back to the beach in the morning, it's a hard life, but it's well worth the visit, you should try it sometime.

Doug and I just had the most relaxing week at Oualie Beach Resort! It was even better the second time around!! Loved our beach facing room which was scenic and peaceful. Loved waking up early in the morning and listening to the birds singing as the ocean glistened. Absolutely loved learning to scuba dive with the best instructor (Deuce) who I trusted with my life underwater. The staff starting with Stacy was terrific and welcoming ... everyone is super nice and has the best attitude. Tim and Jaynelle at the restaurant were always super friendly and so was everyone else. John, one of the owners is super nice too. What can I say but that I wish I was still there!!! Will return again! Thanks to everyone at Oualie for making our vacation special! Best, Sonia

The hotel arranged to have transportation for us when we arrived at the St. Kitts airport. We were promptly picked up at the airport and taken to a dock on Reggae Beach to get on a boat to take us to Nevis and the hotel - the captain also offered us a beer - what service!!

Upon arriving at the dock in Nevis - we had to get our luggage from the dock to the hotel office as no one was there to assist us. Check in was a breeze. We went to our room which was kind of like a little cottage duplex. A LARGE room with a screened in porch right on the beach. The room had a 4 poster queen bed that was quite comfortable, a sleeper sofa, a chair, coffee maker, refrigerator, safe, ample closet and big dresser. The bath room had seen its better days and could use a bit of a face lift.

The hotel bar is also right on the beach and has a full bar plus the local beers. They make a mean rum punch !!!

Food - you may want to look for another place to eat. Every thing we ordered from the restaurant beside sandwiches, came out so over done, it was hard to eat.

If you are looking for a luxury resort with tons of amenities, this is NOT your place - if you are looking for quiet and relaxation - this IS your place!

The staff at the hotel is very accommodating and super nice.

Our main purpose for choosing this hotel was because it is right next to the dive shop

Room Tip: All the rooms are pretty much on the beach!

I cannot recommend this resort enough - it's grounded in a way so many touristic beach resorts aren't, it feels fresh and genuine and true to the spirit of the Caribbean. And is also clean and efficient and has everything you'd need. My room was 10 metres from one of the most beautiful bays on the island and was spacious and beautiful, with a huge four-poster bed and enormous TV. The staff were helpful and wonderful people and the food was delicious - don't miss the banana pancakes at breakfast!
