We read the good reviews on Tripadvisor and felt this resort would be a pleasant place to stay. We flew in after 7at night and when we came to reception we felt that the young lady on reception resented our intrusion on her computer time. When we got to our room we were very disappointed with the decor and the fact that very few of the amenities in the room were in working order. The phone was broken, the safe didn't work, there was no hot water, one of the beds is in danger of collapse etc. not what we were expecting from reviews and pictures.
The food in the restaurant is poor, expensive and painfully slow considering how limited the menu is in the evenings. I advise folks to eat elsewhere if possible. We would definitely rent a car if we returned to the island.
We love small, low key hotels and readily accept shabbiness as part of island living - it is so expensive to import new furniture, food etc. the problem here is that they are offering guests tired rooms at smart room prices (although, we fully understand, not the prices charged at The Plantation or Four Seasons.)
The location is beautiful. The beach is excellent and the grounds better maintained than the rooms. The staff over all are friendly and polite as are all the people we have met on the island.
Nevis is a beautiful island steeped in history. It has largely been untouched by bad development and the people here are very proud of their heritage. We feel so fortunate to have visited the island in its unspoiled state. We hope to return but not to this resort.
