While not nestled on a beach, the inn’s three acres of hillside tropical gardens, views of Basseterre Bay and Nevis, and tropical lagoon-style pool makes this a peaceful Caribbean getaway. Cruisers may like it’s location, just a quarter mile from the port, but families can also spend extended time in the inn in one of 69 rooms with king or double beds in standard rooms, Deluxe rooms with two queens, or one-bedroom suites with two queen beds and a pull-out sofa (maximum five-person occupancy).

Atmosphere was wedding reception the staff was excellent in there service, well polite and friendly. The food was buffet style and it was awesome. The surrounding perfect for memorable picture taking. Love it love it.
Ocean Terrace Inn should not be overlooked because it is not one of the larger chains on the island. I can attest that the service is personalized and better.
The front desk staff was amicable and accommodating during the check-in process. Throughout my stay, Dejour, Everette, and Jaleel had ensured that my reception was warm. They offered tips on what food I must try at the Fisherman's wharf restaurant, hours of operation, and assisted me in the gift shop. Even at the hour of the start of breakfast service, the hotel manager, Mr. Tyson was about personally ensuring guests were happy.
The hotel room was clean, and fresh with a touch of personalization through a note from the manager. The room was quite spacious and offered good views of the sea. I was lucky enough to capture cruise ships docking in the mornings. The door to the verandah had insect screens installed which was quite a relief. The hotel is environmentally friendly and does not use single-use plastic bags, and uses user-experience colour-coded door hangers which are easy to identify.
The Fisherman's wharf is at the bottom of the hill and maybe quite a distance, but is worth the trek downhill as the food is quite tasty.
I would recommend staying at this boutique hotel if you are visiting St. Kitts and will return when I am on the island.
