Pricey Beach Resort, St Kitts

6 day St Kitts Beach Resort was a very pricey resort experience, partly because no effort was extended to give the guest the feeling that she/ he was being pampered. Every part of the St Kitts Marriott experience was a la carte, including what is usually commonly provided a hotel shuttle to and from the airport. Unfortunately, this courtesy wasn’t provided by Marriott. Sometimes it’s these little things that make a big difference. The staff couldn’t have been more personable, genuinely so, in the Caribbean way. The location was lovely, it just was a little too pricey, and it took the enjoyment away.

Resort was very nice

Pros: Many restaurants and multiple pools.
Cons: some restaurants at resort close early or not open.
Beautiful Resort. Close to beach (Atlantic side) however not close to downtown (about 10-15 minute drive). Very pleasant experience. Restaurants were great and Staff was very pleasant and attentive.

Not sure why I can't submit this negative review. Pros: resort was empty for a whole week. The ocean is beautiful and the rooms are nice Cons: extreme cost of food, service charge, tax and gratuity for less than appealing food. No fresh vegetables or fruit they exist with most islands. Hotel is under renovation and pools are filthy.

9 days in July

They were working in the lobby and the noise was very disturbing, in my room no noise audible. The pools are for kids, very shallow.

Dear Carlos-Antonio, thank you for your feedback. I'm pleased that you had a good time at the St. Kitts Marriott Resort. However, you mentioned that the noise from the renovations was a bit disturbing during your vacation, please accept our sincere apologies. We are currently undergoing major renovations to our great room, guest room and lobby bar area that is sure to enhance the guest overall experience. Also, our pools are not for diving they are only 41/2 in dept. I'm sorry you were expecting something deeper, but we try to keep it kids friendly as well as adults. Thank you for choosing the St. Kitts Marriott Resort, I do hope to serve you whenever your travels bring you back St. Kitts. All the best, Jacques Hamou, General Manager

Hotel is okay.

Pros: The staff was friendly and welcoming
Cons: More variety of foods and entertainment
Location: We walked to Frigate Bay, the is much as island as you will experience.
We have stayed before and it was excellent, we were disappointed, most food places were closed or closed early, the breakfast buffet was overpriced for the food received, no fresh juices, limited fresh fruits. The ladies at the steakhouse were excellent the host made us feel welcomed. The hotel prefer not to use cash, which is hard when traveling with a group. If i had another choice of a reputable hotel like Marriott on the island, I would choice the other the next visit.

Relaxing vacation

Pros: The facility and its amenities were excellent but the staff is what made it truly a wonderful experience.
Cons: a longer stay
Location: Historical locations such as Bastille fort, Romney Manor, Batik making, local churches, and beach front eateries.
My wife and I had never been to a Caribbean island and picked St Kitts because it was less commercialized than some of the more well known resort destinations. The history of the island and preservation of its historic land marks were truly remarkable. The local people were very friendly and more than willing to help us find our way around the island. While exploring the island there are many options of hotels and condos depending on your preferences and price ranges. The Marriot is the one the rest are compared to and we found it excellent and would recommend it to anyone. The location, staff and facility were top of the line. The beach, pools, and hotel were well maintained. The staff was very friendly and helpful which made our stay a lifetime memory. Our stay was the first week of Oct. (off season) which made it very nice due to low volume of visitors. It felt very safe moving about the island.

Great Hotel

Pros: Staff was outstanding
Cons: Cleaner pools
This was our 4th time staying at the Marriott, the hotel is just fantastic but it is showing a little wear and tear, although you can see that they are trying to keep up with it. The restaurants were all terrific with the best staff, one night I couldn't finish my dinner because of a cold that I had, the waitress noticed and she came back with Hot tea with lime and honey (no extra charge) talk about going above and beyond!! The only negative that I would say was that the North Pool wasn't very clean other than that the place is a gem!!!!!
