We came here for the 2nd time (were here many years ago) and I loved it all over again. I cannot say anything negative about this resort as a place to stay and a place for activity. It has several types of rooms - hotel and timeshare (maybe others) - and of various sizes. We were in the hotel portion this time. The room was spacious & comfortable. Of course there is always hotel noise, but this was not bad. I love the way the "inside hallways are outside." It just gives that resort/island feel. There is a shopping area in the resort, a Kay's Jewelers and some clothing shops. There are several restaurants, but we did not eat at any of them. This resort is in a great location there are numerous restaurants within walking distance. There is a small grocery store across the street in the shopping center. Of course there is also a casino in the resort and one across the street. This hotel has 3 very large swimming pools that never felt crowded. All of them have a whirlpool that they say is not heated. There are plenty of chairs available and all of the chairs by the pools have overhead self-umbrellas. I guess the fact that there is not a hot tub except in the spa is a negative for some people. Access the the beach is easy and there are numerous chairs and huts on the beach which is according to some, the best beach on the island. The beach is on the unprotected side of the island, so the water has lots of waves. There are also some rocky areas but people seemed to be playing in the water anyway. If you want smooth water, Timothy beach is within walking distance. On our previous trip we went over there to snorkel. I saw people snorkeling this time on the Marriott beach but have no clue if it was good snorkeling or not. We rented a car to use while on the island - so we did not do the Scenic Train ride but I'm sure it is a good attraction. This enabled us to go all over the Island at our pace so I will mention some things that I consider a must see. Drive to the bottom of the island to see Nevis (there is a ferry there to take you over to Nevis but we did not do that) and it is a beautiful drive to that end of the island. There is a Banana farm and farmer's market on that end. The port downtown has lots of good shopping and I enjoyed going there several times. If you want to eat American there is a KFC right by the port - LOL. Also, the Brimstone Hill Fortress is a must see and the drive is a must do! It is amazing, well preserved and quite large. Also do the beautiful Romney Manor and Caribelle Batik. Actually, we ran out of time and wished we had started sight seeing earlier in the week - there is so much to see. Also, a shout out to Ross Veterinary School which is there and you can get an interesting look @ it from the road. We saw so much wildlife on the island, monkeys everywhere (if you have trouble seeing any, go to Shipwreck beach) and pigs and goats and birds. Not as much in the way of water creatures, though, but I'm sure they are available. Hope to go back some day!
Comfortable But No Elevators If Room is Oceanfront
This Marriott Resort is about 15 years old. It is a little dated. I understand it was until recently corporate owned but has recently been taken over by a licensee. Beautiful setting. They maintain the beach very well. Lots of rocks just off shore. During our week there, the season was not really underway yet, so the place was kind of quiet.Very surprised to find no elevators in the buildings closest to the beach! Good exercise climbing to the third-floor, right? The staff is great! The restaurants on site run from just OK (Blue) to extremely good ( Italian- I forget the name ). The bar in the main building is good. Rooms are spacious and comfortable. Rates are not too bad for the location. The staff does a good job helping with tours. You will enjoy your stay!
We bought a day pass through resortforaday.com Took a cab from our cruise ship, 10 min ride for $3 each. When you walk into the open air lobby, they direct you to a desk where you present your internet receipt and get a wristband. Then the facility is open to you. We went directly to the beach, where there are plenty of chairs and permanent palpau's. Unfortunately, there were bulldozers on the beach and huge piles of sand. Apparently, there had been a big storm recently with a lot of beach damage. We did go out in the water for a while, but it was a bit rough. We ended up going back to the huge pool and spent the rest of the day floating, lounging and using the swim-up bar. Had snacks in the small restaurant there. Quick tip-- they didn't take cash, only credit cards. Plenty of chairs and a huge bathroom at the pool. A great day!
I’ll start off by saying that I have tons of points and status with Marriott.. I travel for work 80% of the time and am loyal to Marriott. We are on a cruise and have gone to other Marriott properties in the Caribbean on day pass... I gotta say that this location left MUCH to be desired... We paid the required amount and provided my loyalty numbers . We were then advised we could not use their towel service.... After much conversation we decided just to go and eat.. we went to the restaurant (Calypso’s) which was not the best. Not the worst but not what I had expected. The facilities in the hotel and grounds are dated and run down. The beach chairs are worn out and cabanas are old... While the scenery is stunning and people are fairly nice.. I had hoped for so much more and this place left me hanging........ Next time I’ll go back to Carambola....
Day Pass Review
We bought a day pass to this resort while on a cruise from resort for a day. This hotel is on the Atlantic so the water is very rough, although beautiful. The views from the beach and pool are also beautiful. The chairs by the pool all have shades over them, but it doesn't really do much if you're looking for shade since they don't cover the whole chair you will still be in the sun unless you're lucky enough to get a chair with your back to the sun. The ocean is also pushing the sand back up onto the beach which is a good thing, but they have to work hard to spread the sand around after high tide. which means there's always dunes in front of the palapas, and they have a small bulldozer they use to spread the sand out. They didn't have anyone helping rearrange chairs or unstack them its all do it yourself which is fine, but there were about 10 stacked under each of the palapas, which is not the easiest to move around. We ate in the restaurant and to be honest it was not good. service was terrible to put it nicely. We were seated and the waitress took our order, when the food arrived only 2 out of the 3 people got our food, and we were told the 3rd would be here shortly. It was about 30 minutes later that the 3rd meal finally arrived, after everyone else had finished. In that time 2 other tables next to us were seated and go their food at the same time as the 3rd person in our party. They didn't communicate with us at all as to the delay or even cared that they didn't serve us all together. All in all, if I were to go back to St. Kitts again either for a day on a cruise or for longer i would not be rushing back to this resort, it was just ok, and for the money just ok really isn't worth it.
