We stayed here because we wanted to dive and Dive St. Kitts is located on the property. The picture of the Kayaks and Beach Chairs is old. There is a Dolphin Discovery operation there now. There is no beach but they are "building" one at the other end of the property. They have brought in sand and planted some small palm trees. We had a very nice studio with a kitchen and a view overlooking the Dolphins from which we could watch the shows (encounters) and the training. We could also just walk along the Dolphin pools when there weren't encounters and they would actually come and play for us. This was probably the best part of staying here. In the evenings, we would just sit on the balcony with a glass of wine and enjoy the view and the quiet...until the roosters woke us up in the morning.
The property is old but well maintained and renovated. There is a small pool and restaurant. But since we had the kitchen we could go to the supermarket about a 20-25 minute walk and we also went to the food court just before the market. For our purpose of diving, it was a good place to stay
We stayed 2 nights as a stop over to Nevis. We felt that although it's not a luxury it would be OK and we'd save a few bucks. WRONG!
1st - Be warned, Roaming Roosters - Both mornings we were promptly woke up at 4:24am with a rooster at the top of it's lungs - Cock a Doodle Doooooooooooo for an hour straight. Then every other hour for the rest of the day.
2nd - Feral Cats await you in their open air restaurant. For each meal you will have 4-6 cats under your table and around you staring you down your entire meal. They will not move, no matter what you do.
The hotel Mgr. was having breakfast at the time we were and noticed our annoyance of the cats. He came over and said" I see the cats seem to bother you. Let me tell you about life on St. Kitts. You have to accept the cats. People come here and feed them. They kill the rodents, so you'll see them at the bigger hotels too. So that's the way it is my friend."
Otherwise the place looks nice, but could use some grounds upkeep. The dolphin center is cool. But it's not worth it. Stay elsewhere!!
