“The Hotel”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 6, 2012

The hotel was very clean, I was unable to change the TV channel but it was okay since there was free WiFi available. The service was service was very slow when ordering somethig to eat at the "Cafe" which was not attached to the hotel but was only a few steps away.

Room Tip: Request a room on the 2nd floors they are quieter, less outside noise.

We recently attended the St Kitts Music Fest 2012 and decided at the last minute that we would stay over, rather than get the early ferry back to Nevis. Found Sugar Bay Club on trip advisor, price looked right and pictures suggested it would be OK. We were pleasently surprised, as the room was bigger than expected, the pool area and grounds seemed well tended, AC worked, bed was comfortable, found somewhere local for dinner before we went to the show, it was just what we wanted.

Now this in not a five star resort, but for the price, it is great for a few nights stay, we would definitely use it again

Room Tip: We chose a poolside room and could see the pool, but were not as close as we expected, so speak to r...

We stayed at Sugar Bay recently and wanted something affordable and no-frills, as we were going to the Four Seasons in Nevis later on the trip. It was exactly as advertised. The room we rented was clean and very spacious....the A/C unit worked great as well. The front desk people were friendly and courteous. We thought the landscaping and grounds looked a little neglected, but the pools looked nicely kept. Didn't do beach at all, as that was going to be the focus in Nevis. All in all, exactly what we expected from other reviews and a rate under $120 on Kayak.

We arrived in St. Kitts and was looking for a place for two nights prior to going to the Marriott Vacation Club that was economical. Sugar Bay Club was recommended at the airport so we took a taxi to have a look. The grounds were a mess, the beach dirty/filthy - non existent. I was asked if I wanted to see the room and I said "no thanks". If the grounds and beach were any indication of what the building had to offer, the above picture is not a true representation. However, if you are on a very tight shoe string budget and aren't fussy, have a look. We decided to pay the extra and stay in the Marriott Hotel for the two nights.

Room Tip: I cannot comment on the above because I chose not to check in.

Sugar Bay Club is a well-kept (and ever improving) hotel. There are two pools (one adult) and a nice fitness center. Short walk to several restaurants (Bombay Blues on site, Rock Lobster, Ciao, Rituals Coffee and snack bar, Frigate Bay beach shacks, and the Marriott Hotel.) Short taxi ride to the airport (now is $ 16 for 1-4 persons.) Staff is very courteous and accommodating. The 50 or so medical students that reside there were very quiet (I asked the staff about them and they only rent to quiet ones.) Great location for going anywhere on the island for tours. Taxis are easy to come by. Drivers are very courteous, love to talk about their island, and take you where you want to go. Activities from horseback riding, catamaran tours for snorkeling, diving, ferry trips to Nevis, shopping in Basseterre all easy to get to via taxi (unless one is comfortable driving on the left and rents their own vehicle. We had a great stay at the Sugar Bay Club for much less than the Marriott. Only downside is that the beach is on the Atlantic side and is small in width and quite windy. But, it is a short walk to the Caribbean Side by Timothy Beach Hotel.

Room Tip: Go for the Oceanview room on the second floor. Just lovely to sit on the terrace and watch the ocea...

Having stayed at this property when it was Sun & Sand in 1990,it was nice to see it refurbished with lots of new landscaping, a fitness gym, a second pool with waterfall and a new lobby. The people who work there are friendly and service oriented.The cleanliness of our half of a cottage was excellent. The entire property including pools are well maintained.
It is very convenient to have the Rituals Coffee Shop,( free WiFi) and Rams Convenience store right out in front of the hotel. Also a Liquor/smoke-shop & clothing store. Sugar Bay is on the Atlantic side if the Frigate Bay area, so the trade winds blow off the water most all the time, sometime quite hard. The beach is fine for walking but rough waves for swimming most of the time. Frigate Bay's Caribbean Beach is a short walk away. With few waves, warm water and plenty of beach Bars & Grills to satisfy any appetite. Just over Timothy Hill South Friars Bay beach is long & less crowded, with The Wreck Bar at one end and a new place, Carambola at the other end.There are many more beaches to explore on the south-east peninsula.
There are many good dining options in the area, from panini & pizza to Lobster and Italian, Indian, chinese, & thai.Next time I hope to bring family and get a 2 bedroom,2 bath suite with kitchen and sitting room. I think Sugar Bay is a great deal for the money.The huge Marriot up the road is elegant and impressive,but we prefer a hotel more in keeping with the style of the Island,more personal and welcoming. Sugar Bay fills the bill.The only problem that arose (with the AC) was solved in less than 15 min. by maintenance after a call to the front desk. Hope to go back !

Room Tip: Pool views are nice,and the flowers are everywhere.
