Carambola is a beautiful restaurant with great food in a beautiful setting. They even host weddings! I've never been disappointed when dining at Carambola!

This is a beautiful beach with all the amenities and great service. It was comfortably crowded, the water was great - beautiful sailboats and yachts to see, drinks, food. Easy ride from the cruiseport (we were off a cruise ship). We were dropped here as part of a driving/beach tour organized by Liz Pereira.

We stopped here as part of a safari package. We decided to stay and spend the rest of the day. Taxis were readily available to take us back to our cruise ship. We were able to get chairs on the beach, grab lunch in the restaurant and walk along the black sandy beach. The facilities there were nice and clean.... More

I'd read about this place before our cruise and then our taxi driver recommended it so we went. It was perfect to hang for the day instead of spend tons of $$ on excursions. The club is nice and they rent lounge chairs/umbrellas ($10 each) or round duo chairs with cushion for $20. By time we got there, there were... More

Delicious food, beautiful environment, and charming staff. OJ and his staff work extremely hard to ensure that you are not only satisfied but that you are overjoyed.

We took a cab from the port where our cruise ship docked -- many drivers waiting and you need to ask the price/negotiate and be clear where you are going. 15 minutes and $4 pp plus tip (which they do expect!). The beach club is free. Chairs/umbrellas $10 each and worth it! Really nice facility and service. Great bar, food... More

Visited with the family. Basically if there is a cruise ship then it's a mad house. The staff are over busy. They only open the restaurant when there is a cruise ship in town. They rent the beach chair for $10 is and the umbrella for $10US. So basically if you are a family of 4 you are basically starting... More

My wife and I always try restaurants away from the hotel when on vacation. This was the third for us in St Kitts - and it was the best. The two we had been to already were higher rated on Trip Advisor, but this was the one with the best food by far - and vey reasonable cost wise as... More

Yes, they had sushi and it was good. The rolls had 10 to 12 pieces and were reasonably priced. The restaurant is on a beach, so the views are spectacular. I would not head here just for sushi, but it is nice to know it is an option.

I would have given this club a 5, but I didn't only because the food was really expensive. We went there as part of an all day tour, so by the time we sat down and ate at the restaurant, we didn't get to spend much time on the beach. Very nice bar and restaurant area.

Thank TanyaAshe
