“First rate stay; A relaxing place to visit.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 February 2011

recently my wife and I visited Nisbet Plantation for the second time, and without question it was more enjoyable than our first incredible experience. It is truly amazing that after a year the staff still remebers our last visit, and greets us by name. On one particular morning we did not show for breakfast, and upon showing the following AM we were asked if we were Ok. Two different people from the AM staff noted that we did not show, and inquired if all was well. As one other reviewer stated "you are not treated as a guest of the resort; you treated as family would be".

That said: upon reading other comments; you've got to be kidding!!!! A complaint about the wind in the palm trees, and no wifi. I had no issue connecting to the wifi in the Great House. Each night we would get a pre dinner cocktail, and check what ever we needed to on the internet. As for the wind in the palms: it was the perfect music to close yours eyes to each and every night. Another complaint that I thought was a bit much was: a self proclaimed amateur cooks' claim that they could out do the Kitchen staff. Being that I am a trained chef; now wine industry professional, I would like to see the the "Bobby Flay throw down" they were pushing for. The food was extremely flavorful and delicious, the doneness of meats and fish pefect; while the presentation was eye catching. That guest would be running for the boats in shameful defeat.

Nisbet is #1 for a reason, and I strongly feel that they deserve it. you will too.

I have recently moved to ST Kitts and decided to have a weekend trip away from work to relax and enjoy what Nevis has to offer. I had been recommended Nisbet Plantation Beach Club and it met all of my expectations. I was pleasantly surprised at the large beautifully decorated beach style bungalow which had comfortable beds and the best pillows ever! I enjoyed lunch by the water front and was greeted by friendly staff. In the afternoon I lounged on the beach swinging in one of the hammocks and although there was a cool breeze this was very much appreciated in the hot sun. After a dip in the hot tub early evening it was time to get ready for the evening meal.The evening was spent at the great house which is where the evening meal is served, food was fantastic, pricey but very enjoyable, my only complaint was that they would not allow a couple to sit in the conservatory as the tables were reserved for larger groups and there were two tables of large groups in the main restaurant that were extremely loud so I could not enjoy a nice quiet romantic meal with my partner. Considering the resort attracts couples I feel the conservatory should be offered to all guests.
The breakfast which is served by the swimming pool with views overlooking the Atlantic is to die for... I have never had so much choice and it filled me up for the day..
I would definitely return to Nisbet, if you are looking to relax and get away from every day busy life then this is a place to unwind and you leave feeling like you really have been looked after. A truly wonderful resort with very attentive staff!!! Thank you all at Nisbet. I will certainly be coming back....

We have just returned from our third trip to Nisbet. It continues to be the only place in the world so far that we happily return to. Their standards remain very high . We enjoyed everything: the rooms, the food, the spa, the windy beach, and especially the staff. It was also fun to meet up with old friends from previous visits. Can't wait until we can go back again.

Our 14 night stay at Nisbet turned into 17 nights due to a flight cancellation: we certainly didnt complain! Nisbet is exactly what it says it is on the website. A cursory glance at a map indicates that it is on the Atlantic coast so anyone staying here should be able to work out that it is the windier and rougher (sea-wise) side of the island. Reading reviewers' complaints about wind and waves makes me wonder what powers they think the hotel management have over the elements.

We found the staff incredibly accommodating and friendly. From the General Manager through to room cleaners everyone, without exception, was cheerful, friendly and eager to please guests. The rooms were simple rather than luxurious but very comfortable, the wifi a boon, and the restaurant, beach bar etc of a good standard. Afternoon tea on the patio was a joy and dinner generally extremely good. My only criticism of the food would be that the dinner menu was sometimes a little odd. Im not sure that Beef Wellington and the Caribbean make particularly good bedfellows. Notwithstanding, the food was good, service friendly and efficient and the ambience great.

Nisbet is not somewhere to visit if you want a hectic nightlife, hustle and bustle and a resort hotel experience. However, if you want to unwind and relax and enjoy peace and quiet (which we certainly did) it's a great place to stay. Though not a cheap option, the hotel represents good value. The staff are first rate and star staff such as Roslyn, Violet, Angela and Caddy (amongst others) made the stay memorable and enjoyable.

We stayed here for the second half of our 2 week holiday, this was supposedly the luxury part of our 2 weeks with the first being a week touring St Kitts.

You can't fault their ground arrangements, excellent taxi and boat service across to the island without any waiting both ways.

Rooms were nice and well placed on the grounds which were also well kept. Service in the breakfast and lunch restaurants was very personal and very friendly. However the evening meals which were advertised as exquisite cuisine were poor. As a keen amateur cook at home even I could have cooked up better food for the small amount of covers they had in the restaurant, on 2-3 occasions I couldn't even eat the main courses. Service also in the Great House was false and it seemed unless you were slipping some money to the maitre'de money you were never going to get a table in the conservatory.

Despite the disappointing evening meals we spent a couple of nights in the bar at the Great House and it was brilliant, great staff and wonderful humour.

Also, be aware that despite taking the all inclusive option when we go there we were charged for our mini-bar drinks but once we had complained they did take the charge back off the bill.

Overall I'd say it was a great location, beach was OK, pool OK but really not worth the high prices. I came away feeling ripped-off.

If you're looking for quiet, stunningly beautiful, friendly personal service that would equal anywhere in the world, this is the place for you. Nevis has a certain charm that leaves a lasting impression on those who enjoy real people and a non-touristy destination. No hordes of visitors here; just those who return year after year. If you want casinos, crowds, nightlife, and bright lights, go somewhere else. Nisbet is what you expect it to be, and the experience is unforgettable.
