St. Kitts Marriott

Jump to last reply

I am considering booking the Marriott for our honeymoon in May. I have heard this is a quiet island, but it looks beautiful!!! Has anyone been there? How are the restaurants? How are the people? How are the beaches? Please let me know what we should expect. Any nightlife

    St. Kitts Marriott is a large 300+ room resort. It is by far the largest hotel on the island and looks a little out of place. It has been open about 2 years and still has a few growing pains. Being brand new everything has a bright fresh look. The rooms are of good size and nicely apointed. Parts of the hotel are still under construction but that should not interfere with your stay. If you use the search feature above (type in St. Kitts Marriott) you'll find lots of recents posts discussing the pros and cons of this resort and St. Kitts in general. The resort is on the Atlantic side of the island and there are some reports that the water can be a little rough at times. the beach at the hotel is quite wide (it has been enhanced during construction) and faily long. There is a breakwater a few hundred yards offshore to help minimize wave action. There are several restaurants in the hotel but they seem to get mixed reviews.

    St. Kitts itself is indeed a quite island when compared to places like St. thomas, St. Martin, Puerto Rico, Jamacia, the Dominican Republic and Aruba. There are a variety of good restaurants on the island both casual and upscale with prices to match. The people of St. kitts are very friendly, however there have been reports that the service at the Marriott is a bit sporatic since many of the workers are new to the tourist industry and lack proper traing. This situation is being addressed by management and is improving daily. The pace on the island is slow so if you are a Type A personality you may have difficulty adjusting to "island time". The beaches on St. Kitts are nice but far from the best in the Caribbean. The best ones are on the southern penninsula so you will need a rental car or taxi to visit them. You'll find an active nightlife at the Marriott and to a lesser extent at other places around the island. Hope this helps.

    I have stayed at the st. kitts marriott. The island is best if explored by jeep. The southern peninsula is fun. There are some thorns on the unmanicured/unexplored beaches, but we found a beach we had by ourselves for two hours and as newlyweds you would REALLY appreciate that. Turtle beach bar is really fun with their pet pig. The fort is really cool to investigate. I personally would stay at Ottleys any day over the Marriott, however the marriott practically gave away its rooms when it opened so we stayed there.
