four seasons nevis with an 11 month old?

Jump to last reply

Just wondering if anyone has traveled here with a young child? Is this resort just too fancy to take an 11 month old? We have never traveled with him however he is extremely well behaved. Are there any microwaves/refrigerators for heating up bottles, etc...? We are looking to go in January. How family friendly are the restaurants at the resort? Is it a long drive into town to get less expensive meals? It sounds like it is any easy walk from the rooms to the beach. This is important with the baby. We ruled out the Westin St. John because it can be quite a hike to get to the beach. Any thoughts? Thanks.

    4S Nevis gets lots of families with children of all ages. The staff will do whatever they can to accommodate your needs (but be warned they charge extra for everything). Your decision to bring your child is really up to you as the hotel seen it and done it all before.

    The rooms do not have microwaves but if you are renting one of their villas they will have a fully equipped kitchen. All the "hotel" type rooms and some of the smaller villas are within and easy walk of the beach. Depending on your room location you'll either be beachfront(literally steps away from the sand) or mountain view (two minute or less walk to the beach). If you are staying in a villa the distance will vary from a few hundred feet to as much as a 1/3 mile up the mountain side. There are paved walkways and paths between the various buildings so if you are brining a stroller you won't have any problems navigating around the resort.

    You'll need a rental car or taxi to get to Charlestown which is about two miles south of the resort. You'll find several places to eat (in all price ranges) but many of the restaurants on Nevis are not in town. For a wealth of information on the island and a comprehensive list with unbiased reviews of nearly every restaurant on Nevis go to www.nevis1.com. That site will tell you everything you need to know about Nevis.

    I wouldn't completely rule out the Westin. We stayed there for a few days after renting a villa on St John for a week and were travelling with 2 small children, ages 8 months and 21 months. We stayed in one of the one room suites and found it was great with the kids. There was plenty of room even for 2 cribs and there was basically a kitchenette with everything you would find in a full size kitchen. This was great for feeding the kids and heating up bottles. We were across the street at the very top of the hill (I think they may actually be timeshares). We would just wait outside our room for a shuttle which seemed to run about every 5-10 minutes to go to the pool/beach. Our kids loved the pool because there was a small kiddie area and lots of other little kids to watch and play with. We found the pool easier than the beach as there was no sand to eat which was our son's favorite activity. You could get lunch around the pool which was very handy. For naps we would just go back to the room and sit on the balcony and there was a pool a couple of rooms down that one of us could go take a dip in if we got too hot. The dinners at the hotel were just okay, but it was handy to be able to eat right there. We had spent the week eating in Coral Bay and just about all of the restaurants there were family friendly (although sometimes service was a little too slow with little ones). And as I'm sure you've heard, the other beaches on St John are just amazing. Haven't been to Nevis so I can't comment there.
