Stayed here for 6 nights in early August.
Since this was "hurricane season" the rates were significantly less than in high season.We felt like we had the whole resort to ourselves! Good weather overall.
Stayed in a Deluxe Oceanview Room on the 2nd story of the Coconut Walk building.
Double bedded room had a pull out couch area and small table with 2 chairs. The room layout was exactly like the Four Seasons in Maui, but this one had tile floors. The porch area had two lounge chairs as well as other seating. Very nice quality and well kept.
TV - Great channels! All U.S network channels, plus Movie channel, HGTV, ESPN, Cartoon network, to name a few.
The A/C worked wonderfully in our room and really chilled the room to our liking.
iPod docking station, DVD player, and safe were available
Very expansive grounds. The resort has 3 pools that are spread out along the beach side. 1 of those pools is an "adult only" pool, and it is at the southernmost point of the resort. There are multiple towel stands with complimentary sunscreen/cooling gel options for guests. Despite staying in the off season, our glasses were always filled with water by passing servers. Pools were clean and had plenty of lounge chairs/umbrellas to pick from. There is a large hot tub by the main pool area.
If you're a jogger, the resort map has 3 different trails you can pick from. There are 10 tennis courts on the backside of the resort near the sports facility which houses the 1,500 sq ft gym.
Our flight landed at 2:05pm from MIA, and we deplaned on the small St. Kitts runway. We waited 30 mins to clear customs in St. Kitts...We chose to be picked up by the Four Seasons staff so we paid $130 upon reserving the hotel, to be taken from the airport in a taxi bus to the dock where we boarded the small ferry. We did have to wait on 3 other groups of people before heading to the dock, so if you're the first one through customs...you may/may not be waiting for others. There are a number of other ferries that go back and forth from each island for $12 pp each way, but we did not check into that. The ferry process takes about 35-45 mins from dock to dock. They serve rum punch and bottled water.
Once you arrive you are met at the dock with a guest service rep who escorts you to your room. You never "check in" at a desk. Your luggage is delivered to your room after you arrive.
Wifi is included in the room rate with 1 device per room, per day. You can pay to upgrade your service if you choose to. No problems connecting; good strength. They even have wifi on the beach! Very helpful.
Had dinner at Neve one evening. They offer a basket of bread w/olive oil and balsamic vinegar to start each meal. Opted for the margherita pizza and pappardelle bolognese. All purchases on the resort incur the automatic 15% gratuity and 12% VAT tax. Mangos was another restaurant directly on the beach that we tried. We did not need reservations, but went right when they opened at 6pm. Great music! Food was good too. Nothing extraordinary.
The Coral Grill is more of an upscale dining option. Although we did not bring any long pants, they were quite welcoming when we arrived in collared shirts and khaki shorts. This was our best meal on the island. Had the nightly special, "Surf N Turf" with 4 oz filet, lobster tail, mashed potatoes and vegetables: $48 usd. Also ordered the lobster mac n cheese as a side. Highly recommend having dinner here at least once.
Neve - Buffet Breakfast each morning is $34 pp, and includes the full spread from meats to cheeses, omelet station, cereals, pancakes, coffee/juices. There is a $24 option that consists of just cereals/yogurts and pastries.
All prices are the same as you would find in the restaurants except for the extra $5 delivery fee. Definitely recommend the Chicken Burger! Always on time or early.
I'm a HUGE "clear, blue water, and white sand" kind of person, but here it's a little different. The water is, in fact, very clear and different shades of blue...but because the sand is comprised of volcanic ash...it doesn't pop like it does in Turks and Caicos or Grand Cayman. The beach at the Four Seasons is actually called "Pinney's Beach" and is about 3 miles long. The beach is very groomed and clean, plenty wide, and has a ton of lounge chairs and umbrellas for use. The servers were very gracious and accommodating. The sand is almost a light shade of grey. The water is VERY calm which makes it perfect for wading in the water or snorkeling. Snorkeling equipment is complimentary for 2 hrs each day at the water sports desk. Also, the sand is plenty soft so there is no reason to bring the water shoes.
Ask the concierge to set you up with a taxi that will take you to the ValuMart IGA nearby. It's $20 r/t and you get 15 mins to shop for groceries. Every 15 mins thereafter is $5. I believe it's open 9-8pm and is a about 10 mins away from the resort. Prices are in European Currency so though a box of cheez-its say $18, they are a little less than half of that. Currently $1us = $2.48EC.
Green Vervet monkeys inhabit the Island of Nevis...mostly on the golf course. I was hoping that they'd be on the resort but that's not the case. You can take a long walk on one of the trails to see them. They will not let you get too close to them; they'll scatter once you arrive.
While we were there, the 2-for-1 Happy Hour was available at the Beach Cabana from 4:30-5:30 each day and at the pools. Drinks are normally $12. Definitely recommend the Nevisian Spirit Cocktail.
Although the room has a small coffee pot, head to the lobby where you can partake in their complimentary "fancy" coffee machine each morning. A lot more options available here (cafe latte, espresso, regular drip coffee)
There is not much to do after the sun goes down. The resort is VERY dark; I actually think they need a LOT more lighted pathways. There is a flashlight in your room which I assume is for this purpose.
Hope this helps!
