“Clean and quiet”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 28, 2013

We enjoyed our recent stay at Marriott Resort on St. Kitts. Of course they had been in a drought and we decided to show up and it rains every day - go figure. At check-in, they offered to upgrade us to a bigger room for $75 per night. We didn’t and I was glad we didn’t because the regular room was quite large for the two of us. We had a view of the hills but it also overlooked the air conditioner units so you might consider upgrading to the pool side for a honeymoon or other special occasion if you want a better view. The hotel is very clean - there is always someone cleaning the bathrooms, the pool area, etc. Some of the bathrooms throughout the resort were showing some wear & tear (broken stall handles, rust, etc.). Our safe died twice and our shower broke but the hotel sent someone to fix always right away. The landscaping was beautiful on the property and the beach was very clean. Venture off the property and you saw your typical garbage washed up on the beach though. The walkable part of the beach is probably about 1 mile long so don't think you will be able to stroll for hours on the beach. It was pretty windy on the Atlantic side so we did the beach for the first few days before we abandoned that because of being blasted by sand and just sat by the pool the last two days. When we were on the beach, no one tried to pedal anything for us to buy so that was nice to just relax and not be annoyed. There was a beach shop onsite that we bought some swim suits at that had cute clothes. A few other shops full of perfume/alcohol, jewelry, and general supplies.
Our hotel package came with free breakfast every morning so we did the Calypso buffet for breakfast ($52 for two if not free), had pizza at the Pizza Shack by the pool each day for lunch, and stayed on property two nights for dinner and went off for property two nights for dinner. The restaurants on property are ok but we found the ones off property were a notch up for food (the concierge has a book with all the restaurant menus in it and will call and make reservations for you). There is happy hour at the pool bar and lobby bar each night so try to plan your drinks around that to save a few dollars. A lot of people also just bought beers in the gift shop onsite to save the service fees.
It was a rainy while we were there so we didn’t get to participate in many activities but I saw yoga, water aerobics, walks, tennis courts, basketball court, and other exercise activities on the daily newsletter (in restaurants and at towel stand).
We would definitely stay at this property if we come back to St. Kitts.

Stayed here for 2 nights in early April 2013 - fantastic room, great beach, very good restaurants. We did have to move rooms because the AC wasn't working in our original room in building 1, so they moved us to building 2 and the AC was COLD!!

The beach is definitely a morning beach - since the sun rises over the Atlantic side of the island - I was up at 5:45 am for the most beautiful sunrise ever.

Food was very good, but a little pricey - we ate at the seafood place by the pool, the Italian place on the 2nd floor of the main building, and the sandwich place/coffee shop.

We did not go into the casino, but had some friends who did and really enjoyed it.

I had the privelege to stay here during a corporate incentive program and found the experience priceless. The resort is maintained beautifully, with tropical flowers and foliage designed carefully around the houses. Their restaurants are terrific, I especially reccomend trying the smoothies at Bohemia and a dinner at Blu. There is awesome live music in the evenings and the beach cabanas provide a great place to hang out without getting burnt. It is paradise!

When you think of Marriott resorts, the St Kitts resort should be top of your list. It's a beautiful hotel with great views of the ocean, multiple restaurants for even the finicky eater, huge pool with swim up bar, also a quiet pool for those wanting peace poolside, poolside/ocean-side restaurant, and great service. This property also has Marriott VacationClub units (2 & 3 bedrooms). It has a great golf course, tennis courts, a huge fitness center, and unbelievable Spa. Oh, it also has a casino that's small and not in your face like Vegas or AC. So I'm not sure why some of the posts rip this hotel. It's located on the windward-side of the island, it's within walking distance of the Caribbean and the local eateries on the beach. It's only a 10-15 min cab ride from the airport so compared to the other islands, St Kitts is a destination you need to have on your list and you won't be disappointed in the Marriott either.

Room Tip: Rooms in the main building have an elevator and rooms in the outer buildings do not.

My husband and I stay at Marriotts quite a bit. This was a very nice hotel. The pool and beach were wonderful. The concierge desk was very helpful. I was not a fan of the 12.5 percent service charge. I thought the service in some restaurants were not that great for what I was paying. The food was very good I just thought the service could have been better. I don't feel this was just at the Marriott. When I went to restaurants off the Marriott property they had a lower service charge but I still had the same level of service so this may be an island thing. I felt the tour desk was very unhelpful. I felt like the woman at the desk was bothered by my questions. The front desk was wonderful. We asked for an upgrade and they let my husband and I look at two rooms and pick which one we wanted. They also let us have a late check out which we much appreciated.They also gave us very good restaurant recommendations. I felt the pool bar drinks were ok and the food not the greatest but the other restaurants at the Marriott had great food. All and all I would recommend this hotel as a great place to stay.

Its huge spanning corridors of rooms mean if you forget something in your room, you'll have a good walk to go get it. This aside, it's a very clean and nice Marriott but feels like it could be anywhere. Expensive in price, the hotel was full of American gambling tourists due to its large casino, and the whole thing felt detached from St. Kitts and the Caribbean. Food nice enough with great breakfasts but there are better places to stay.

You know what? I'm not even going to write much...just read the title.

READ...THE...TITLE..

BUY...THE...PIZZA

The lobby is also very beautiful and spacious. You definitely get a sense of the West Indies with a little touch of modern when you step in.

There's great scenery also. My friends and I are always coming here just to hang out and relax...oh, and buy pizza. You have to come. I'm going today! Like, really...

Would love to shoot a wedding here...
