“The Only Spot In St. Kitts”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 23, 2013

The title of this review is a bit two-sided. On the good side - this fairly new Marriott property has most of the usual details we've come to expect in a timeshare property/hotal combo. Without getting into too many specifics already covered by other merry travelers; great beach/great pool/pleasant staff. The bad news - it's the ONLY bigtime property on the island (hence the ambiguous title). Some maintenence upkeep is needed, the flora is less than adequate with dead and dying plants everywhere, and the service can be called "on island time". Overall, a solid property on a gorgeous island.

This resort is another great Marriott property!! Our villa was spacious, comfortable, perfect location, and beautiful! The entire staff was friendly and helpful. I guess the one disappointment was the places to eat on the property...the Bleu was exceptional but the rest of the eateries leave a lot to be desired. My party of 4 had to go off property to get a meal. Cabanas and lounge chairs were provided (complimentary) on the beach....this is a BIG plus!!!! We really enjoyed our week at this resort....would definitely return!!! Cannot believe that Marriott does not have a Sales office on this property!!!!

Room Tip: Our villa was located on the first floor....patio opened out onto the pool area!!! Great !

What a great ocean get away. Very "chilled out" escape from the Hustle & bustle of city life. Get on "island time" . nice spacious villa's, stay in & cook or dine out. just a taxi ride away to fine dinning & hill country/ocean views. quiet pristine beach front location. Sunshine & more sunshine

Spent 10 nights at the resort. That was 2 or 3 too many. A week would be about right. All of the reviews were pretty much on the mark. The facility is probably the nicest on St. Kitts. Take snorkle equipment if you can. We saw turtles and stingray and fish in front of the hotel. Fins help in the current. The hotel rents them but they were kind of pricey.
Everything is expensive at the resort, so be prepared. There is a liquor store about 1/4 away as well as a couple of decent restaurants. Wifi is available at the coffee shop but you have to pay at the resort. The pool is nice and the drinks are okay, but, again, spendy.
Went on a snorkle day trip over to Nevis and walked to Sunshine bar down the way. He has a special drink he concocts there called the bumble bee... Its really good but stay with one unless you want someone carrying you back (its a hike back to the boat)
The strip has some interesting eateries. The fire eater show was free but underwhelming.
We toured around the island on a moped. The roads can be horrible and the drivers are nuts. I never saw a cop outside of downtown. You must get a drivers license which was quite a fiasco in itself. Not worth it really but there were some beautiful views. The fort was really neat and a nice view.
The Alexander Hamilton museum in Nevis was a rip off. I dont recommend it. It looked like they downloaded things and printed them large.......
The cabbies will charge you $11 plus tip to go to town. If you want to shop in town, do it on days the cruise ship is in. I know that sounds backwards, but many of the vendors are only open on cruise days.

No entertainment at the resort. I think they are missing out. They have a perfect venue to keep folks on property if you gave them something other than the Casino to do.

A nice trip for 4-7 days.

You will be delighted by the availability of activities the resort and small island offers. From fine dining to casual beach bars the variety both on and off the resort offer plenty of options. Taxi's are inexpensive, so you don't need to rent a car. There are natural and historical sites worth visiting on the island.
The resort staff are wonderful! They helped to make our entire vacation experience memorable!

Stayed a few days for work. Great property. Casino was ok, small and some machines down. They do offer bingo if you like that and Texas hold 'em on the weekends. 4 restaurants, outside dinning was very good and the restaurant device was very good. Was not very busy so the nightlife was non existent even though that's what it's built for. Awesome beach and they have a nice spa. Would recommend and will stay there my next visit.
