St Kitts & Nevis
  • Traveled with Air Canada
  • Overall tips Really a beautiful spot in the Caribbean. The island is just getting started and has some development. the people were nice though not always at the Marriott. Go to Nevis for the day and check out the beaches on the Caribbean side.
Accommodation
  • St. Kitts Marriott Resort & The Royal Beach Casino
    858 Frigate Bay Road, Frigate Bay, St Kitts & Nevis
    A great place to stay with the kids. They have a lot of activities (not like an all-inclusive) but enough to make the happy. The beach is on the windy, Atlantic side, but on calmer days the water is perfect. The food choices are ok, but outside the hotel, 5 minute walking distance, there are a bunch of good restaurants. Just remember everything is on Island time! Also, important to remember this is not a 5 star hotel. It is mostly a 4 star and if you have stayed in Fairmonts or Ritzs you will feel the difference. But still well worth it.
Activities

St Kitts & Nevis

    • Spent the day playing on the beach, swimming in the (unheated) pools and getting to know the resort.
      • Ciao Italian Restaurant
        Kittian Village, St Kitts & Nevis
        An Italian couple run it and make some fantastic food - the gnocchi melted in my mouth. Just no view of the water.

St Kitts & Nevis

    • Brimstone Hill Fortress National Park
      St Kitts & Nevis
      A great activity with the kids. They loved climbing up and they have done a nice job of preserving the fort and explaining what life was like there. The views are amazing!
      • Pizza
        Onsite, wasn't bad and easy with tired kids.

St Kitts & Nevis

    • Pinneys Beach
      St Kitts & Nevis
      If you are going for more than a few days I strongly recommend taking the ferry to Nevis and spending the day on Pinney Beach. There are 3 restaurants right there and we ate at Turtle Time - the owner was really helpful (calling our cab driver and telling him to come later). After you get off the ferry, there are taxi drivers and for $10US they will take you right there and come back and pick you up. Great day!
      • Turtle Time Bar & Grill
        Pinney's Beach, Vaughans, St. Kitts & Nevis
        Of the 3 restaurants there I highly recommend this one. The smoothies are really good and the fish sandwich was fresh.

St Kitts & Nevis

    • Last full day we spent at the resort. THe Winds had died down and we had a lot of fun swimming on the beach. Had fun playing bingo in the afternoon.
      • Sushi in the Marriott
        Had really good (and expensive) sushi in the lobby restaurant of the Marriott. Nice way to have a good, fresh meal without having to leave the property, especially if the younger ones are tired.

    • Shipwreck Beach Bar
      St Kitts & Nevis
      Great funky place to hang out. Get here before they tear it down and put up the Ritz Carlton. The beach was amazing.
