We wanted to vacation somewhere that wasn't overly crowded or overly touristy----and having been to Nevis before, decided that it would be the place. We looked for some packages on Expedia, and used Tripadvisor to research the locations.
The reviews on Mount Nevis were consistently positive, and the airfare and resort package price looked good, so we booked it.
Shortly after that we decided that we would change our pending wedding plans from a big wedding at home, to eloping on this trip and having a subsequent big party later at home. The Mount Nevis people had a Wedding Package so we added this to our plans.
Both my new wife and I can say that we made an excellent choice on all fronts!!
We arrived around 9:30 PM on a Saturday evening and Pat---the Manager had waited there to check us in---they also kept the resaurant open until we could change and come back for what was the first of several outstanding dinners.
This kind of courteous, personalized service was continued by the staff for our entire visit!
Pat Jeffers----the manager---ensured we had all details of our week and pending wedding planned to our satisfaction. And talk about going above and beyond the call of duty, we even changed the day for the wedding while there, and she cheerfully re-arranged all details with the same zeal as if it was her own family that was getting married.
The wedding surpassed our expectations and was really a special day for us. We were married at a historic church on the grounds of the hotel-----the small stone church has no remaining roof, and was very quaint. The hotel staff had again gone above and beyond by beautifully decorating it with palm fronds and flowers, music was provided by steel drum, and we were joined by some wonderful guests that we had met at the hotel, as well as having Pat, the manager, Sally the owner and Peter from the staff attend as our guests as well. They had also provided a photographer, and a minister from the island who was a wonderful man and provided an inspiring service!
Everyone joined us for a reception dinner-----which was also excellent with more special touches by the staff for decorations, deserts, music, etc. All in all, it was a special day for us, made even more memorable by our new found friends from the Mount Nevis hotel------who are also invited to our wedding party in June in Wisconsin.
The balance of our stay was also great----the Mount Nevis staff helped us in setting up snorkeling trips, tours of both Nevis and St. Kitts, and would drive us to the beach at a moments notice. While we were originally a little unsure of not being right on the beach, this was not an issue at all as we had great ocean views from our lovely room and balcony, and as I said, the staff would get you to the beach an any time, and the drive was less than 5 minutes. Having the total peace and quiet of this facility, as well as the very personalized service definitely made this the right choice for us!
There are a number of excellent restaurants around, and while we enjoyed our nights out, we were always pleased with the meals at the Mount Nevis resaurant as well as room service.
For anyone looking for an outstanding value, and great people with a very comfortable hotel------do check out the Mount Nevis Hotel and Beach Club!!!!!
