We (my husband and I) had read about Oualie in one of our travel magazines (a certified green resort, moderately priced, on a beautiful island) and were thrilled to find it on Skyauction. Nevis had been hit by a major hurricane just a few days before and much of the area had been damaged. Despite cloudy water and some beach debris (quickly cleaned up) on the first couple of days, we loved Oualie. The rooms are individual villas, each with a screened-in porch. They were reasonable sized, with comfortable beds and large showers in the bathrooms.We were just a few steps from "our" beach chairs, where we happily spent part of each day, seeing almost no one. The views were beautiful!
The staff at the resort went out of its way to be helpful. They made phone calls and reservations for us without being asked, remembered our drink preferences (and our names, in the restaurant), and were generally warm and considerate. The food in the restaurant was okay--not great but better than "not bad"--but it was off-season and they were out of some of the dishes and specialty drink ingredients (though these were still on the menu). When we asked about food, they immediately recommended close-by restaurants for us, and we LOVED their recommendations. Again, there's no way they could have been more helpful. We also enjoyed the manager's cocktail party, since it gave us a chance to meet others staying there. Since we mostly sat on the beach and read and relaxed, we hadn't really gone out of our way to meet anyone else and so appreciated the opportunity to meet other guests.
Oualie is very old-fashioned Caribbean--no terrycloth robes, no expanses of marble, no glitz. It's hard to know what activities they have for kids (or more active adults) since the hurricane had done a lot of damage to docks, etc. However, it was just what we wanted: a low key resort, right on the water, with good service. In addition, we saw several monkeys on the property across the street!
