Palms Court, Ottley's, Carambola- Help!

Finalizing our plans for one day in port at St. Kitts. Torn between spending time at Palms Court Gardens, Ottley's or Carambola Beach Club. Was thinking of seeing Brimstone Hill either first thing in the morning and then heading to one of the above for lunch and the afternoon- or switching and going to one of the above first and then to Brimstone Hill before heading back to the ship. Which of the three should we choose- and how should we arrange the day? We like good food and beautiful views. I was drawn to the Palms Court because the pool looked very inviting. But, the reviews for Ottley's and Carambola foodwise, have me drawn to them. Help!

Ok, you are falling into "is the setting better at the other place" syndrome. There's no right or wrong answer. Palm Court, Otley's and Carambola are not better or worse than each other, they are just different venues so you'll have a "different" experiences. Go to Carambola if you want a beachfront environment. Go to Palm Court if you want to stay in a lovely oasis setting near town, go to Otley's if you want spend time at a plantation in an "Old World Caribbean" setting amid tropical gardens at the edge of a rain forest.

Definitely visit Brimstone Hill - best to go in the morning than choose one of the other places for a leisurely lunch. That way, you'll have the flexibility to do something else in the afternoon or just spend more time relaxing before you return to the ship.

Does Carambola have a website with menus?

Carambola has a lunch menu on their Facebook page - you have to scroll down a bit to find it.
