Location: Ti Kaye is on the west side of the island south of Anse la Raye. It is off the main road by a good mile and 20-30 mins from a main town. The road is quasi-paved but it makes for an fun taxi ride. After winding your way down to towards the beach, Ti Kaye appears and you know you made the right choice of hotel. The rooms and main part of the resort are perched on the cliffs overlooking the bay.
Hotel Appearance/Features: Very well kept up, higher quality than some of more mainstream resorts on the island. The main area is an open air area with great views of the water and beach. Below the main room is the bar which has windows and A/C. There is a small gift shop with some good items and any items you might need if you forget to pack something. They do have a tour book in the main area if you are interested in exploring the island. Most everything is listed in US $ so you do not have to convert from EC. We did visit the spa and got a couples massage. The start off with a foot scrub and then you lay down overlooking the bay in an open air room. You have 6 oils to choose from when getting a massage. The grounds are very nicely kept and full of colorful plants and birds.
Room: If traveling from the US, the room had 1 plug that was 110v and a USB charger on the radio. The rest of the plugs are 220v and need a converter. Each room has a bed with a bug net, A/C, mini fridge, room safe, ceiling fan, 2 bath robes, and a large closet. The windows are all big wooden shudders that you can pin closed. The outdoor shower is awesome and a neat experience. The bathroom is great and has very nice tile and a glass sink. Everything worked very well and we had no issues. The patio though was my favorite part. You have two chairs and a table plus a hammock. You can sit there each morning and night and listen to all the birds and watch the sailboats go by.
Pool: A small pool, but it definitely makes up for it with views of ocean and very nice lounge chairs with either a umbrella or covered pergola. The pool was crystal clear and nice and cool.
Beach: To get to the beach you have a 167 stairs to climb down. Once you get to the bottom there is the beach bar/restaurant to your left and the beach to your right. The sand is a mix of tan and black sand so it does get fairly hot during the day. Highly recommend wearing sandals unless in the water. The resort has chairs for everyone at the resort so there is no having to run down there in the morning to reserve a spot. Also there are kayaks you can take out and explore with. You can rent snorkel gear from the dive shop located in the beach bar. The area has some great snorkeling. The water is very clear once you get out 20 feet from the beach. There are tons of fish and we even saw an eel. The one downside to the beach is that the tour boats know the snorkeling is good and bring everyone here to snorkel. This normally happens 2-4pm as they come back from Soufiere. Also there are some locals on the beach as well that might try to sell you shells but they tended to focus on the tour boats.
Service: At the main restaurant, there are 20 or so tables. It is open for breakfast, lunch and dinner. We found that the service at all 3 meals was prompt while allowing you to enjoy the meal and the view. We had a different experience at the beach bar. We were seated very quickly but then we waited for 10-15 minutes to get water. After a while on the beach and the humidity, you will need something to drink and wasn't pleased to wait that long. There were only 2 servers for about 15 tables though. Also we waited 10+ minutes to get our check. We really wanted to get back to beach and enjoy
Food/Water: The tap water is safe to drink here. We found the food to be some of the best food on the island. Breakfast is a buffet and has fresh fruit and bakes(beignets) with an omelette bar. Lunch we typically ate down by the beach (burgers, fish and chips). Dinner was amazing. I had a steak one night and pepper jack stuffed chicken the next. Dinner was always something we looked forward to.
