Nisbet Plantation Beach Club
Ranked #1 of 3 Hotels in New Castle
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 3 February 2013

We have just returned from two weeks at the Nisbet Plantation Beach Club. For us who are a couple in middle age it was a perfect place to unwind and relax. The rooms were beautiful and well maintained and cleaned thoroughly every. Ours had a main bedroom and a small porch with screens all around so you could sit out at night and be free from insects etc. The staff are polite and friendly without being too intrusive, but are willing to help should you have any concerns. The climate is perfect on the atlantic side of the island as there is always a constant breeze, but you still need to be aware of the strength of the tropical sun! It is wonderful that there are no TVs in the rooms, but the wifi system is good should you need to use the internet. There is a TV at the Great House , but there is never anyone around watching it as the whole place has so few people! That was the thing we noticed most, it was very private, it was like having a beach to yourself most of the holiday and never a fight for sun beds or space. Perfect! The breakfasts were good and lunch at the coconut bar lovely too. There was always a main menu as well as a daily specials board. We had the afternoon tea every day and did not eat the dinner at night as it was a bit late for us..we did have a try a couple of nights but found it did not suit . Most others ate the dinner and enjoyed it. We want to go back there again as we feel this holiday could not be topped.

Room Tip: Rooms on the left, back on to the boundary and have lots of insect noise(we liked it) the right side...

This is our sixth time back. There is nothing as relaxing as sitting here mesmerized by the sound and sight of the ocean with the wind blowing through the palms above me. Food is fantastic! Tonight is the beach barbecue. Every possible Nevisian delicacy is served. Meat , all types of fish, great desserts and a fantastic band. Just finished a four hour snorkel /sail trip so I'm looking forward to another rum punch. This is the Carribean. Unpretentious yet wonderfully refined. The people are great and have become friends, whether it is your first time or sixth. The fact that I keep coming back says it all.

We have just returned from a 10 day holiday at the Nisbet. It is a lovely relaxed hotel with very personal but discreet service. The staff are friendly, they all know your name from the moment you arrive. The rooms are comfortable, I particularly appreciated the lounge area in our bungalow as it meant my husband could have an afternoon nap and I could relax and read out of the sun without disturbing him.
The food was excellent, some of the best we have eaten in the West Indies, the bar in the evening was fun.
If you want an all action holiday this is not the place for you, there is very little to do, but it was just what we needed.

Many of the guests return year after year, we spoke to many who were back for their 6th or more times.
It is a happy place to stay and work as many of the staff have been there for 10yrs or more. We would happily recommend Nisbet for a quiet relaxed get away.

We went to this very highly rated resort expecting something exceptional and were quite disappointed. The amosphere is relaxing, the staff pleasant, the service good, and the food varied and well-prepared. However, the accomodations are nice, but not special in any way. The grounds are large and open, but are not beautifully maintained or lush, though we saw other resorts on Nevis set in beautiful gardens. The beach and pool are well-kept, but there are far prettier ones in the Caribbean. There are no waterfront activities, and the snorkeling equipment provided was in poor shape. The fitness center is so tiny it's claustrophobic. It was annoying and expensive to have to take a taxi to another facility in order to do any water sport or go sailing. It would help if Nisbet provided scheduled free shuttle service to facilities on the the Caribbean side of the island where the water is a lot calmer than the Atlantic and these acitivities are available. This is a good hotel, but it in now way deserves a top rating.

Dear mdaddyman,

Thank you for your review. Although Nisbet Plantation has received many awards, we are not ultra fancy or opulent – just private and personal.

What sets Nisbet apart, and the reason many guests return, is the service from our Nevisian staff. While we are pleased to hear you enjoyed our staff’s service, relaxing atmosphere and cuisine, we are sorry that our accommodations and amenities did not meet your expectations.

Thank you again for sharing your feedback.

A wonderful place to relax. Accommodation comfortable and quiet; staff friendly and extremely helpful; food excellent and varied; situation of the resort by the beach couldn't be better. We wouldn't hesitate to recommend it.

Room Tip: The basic rooms which are named 'superior' are excellent.

Under the superb leadership of relatively new GM, Andrew Hall, this hotel is a bit of paradise. Far quieter than it's much larger competitor, Four Seasons, the staff ratio is almost 1-1. The dinners were among the best I have ever had in the West Indies. The staff were warm & friendly but not instrsive. Sure it was expensive but 75 degrees at the New Year is costly. My 15 year-old twins went scuba diving (5 minutes) and were certified. The jet skiing (8 minutes) had new equipment. Band was very good. Patterson, the maire d, has been at Nisbet over 20 years and assures that all runs smoothly. I fear it will not be long before Nisbet is "discovered). Careen who met our flight should be more involved with the hotel- she is very personable

On behalf of the entire staff here at Nisbet Plantation Beach Club, thank you so very much for your glowing remarks. There is simply nothing more important to us than a happy guest. Knowing that we “wowed” you with our service, cuisine and activities is the highest praise we could ask for. We’re so glad you “discovered” us at Nisbet. Come back and see us.

The venue is by the beach and a bit windy!! The band was good and zither beach is fine,
On a good day it seems to be ok.but some days the food is stodgy and pricey.

Dear Dunbar R
Thank you for your comments. We’re pleased to hear you appreciated the live entertainment and beach setting. With our location on the Atlantic coast we are provided with a year round sea breeze, some days stronger than others. Our menu selections encompass the many styles of food our guest have requested and with the daily specials usually featuring local cuisine. I’m sorry that your experience was inconsistent. Thank you again for your comments. I am sorry that Nisbet Plantation dining did not consistently meet your expectations.
