HELP - Need info on Jack Tar Village

Jump to last reply

Planning a trip to Jack Tar Village, St. Kitts in late November. Have "mixed" feelings having read the forum messages. Has anyone been to the resort since the renovations? Where are the nice beaches ? Is it difficult to get around ? How are the food & accommodations ? Any & all info is appreciated. THANKS

    Re: Jack Tar Village, St. Kitts. We were there in the early 90s a couple different years, before the renovations. I felt it was a good value for the money. We went with several other couples and my husband golfed half of every day we were there. There are two beaches within walking distance (or hop a shuttle if you don't want to walk) but neither of them are what you would describe as beautiful beaches such as those in some of the other carribbean islands. When we were there (Jan) the surf on the Atlantic side was much to rough to swim in. The beach on the Carribbean side is good for swimming but small. I do believe it has been improved somewhat since we were there. Perhaps someone else who has been there more recently can help you with that. The meals were adequate and mostly buffet but two nights a week there was a sit down, order from the menu meal. I thought the employees at the resort were organized and helpful. The evening entertainment was not Las Vegas but was fun. I felt we got a lot for our money. There are two pools, one of which is the quiet pool which we enjoyed. It' nice not to have to "sign" every time you want a drink or a snack. There are always taxi's available if you want to get to some other area of the island, but with an all-inclusive we didn't do much of that. The rainbows are beautiful. The monkeys are cute. Hope this helps.
