By way of background, we are hybrid (weeks and points) owners having been with MVCI for 10 years. This is our third stay at the St. Kitts Beach Club in 6 years. We had a second floor condo overlooking the south pool and were happy with the room. The room was clean and well stocked with towels and amenities. However, as others have noted, the chairs and sofa in the seating area were not very comfortable - the bed was great. We like the fact that the the condos are part of the resort so that time-share guests have access to the resort amenities. They have also done a good job furnishing the many beach cabanas. The beach is clean and this year the many masseuse and aloe vera hawkers were gone. They have been replaced by one lady who sells trinkets and offers on-the- beach massage at a single location. This was a respite from our other visits. Outside the room, we continue to see maintenance issues such as tiles coming apart from the building, stair railing in a state of disrepair, stair-well lights not functioning and fountains not operational. The most irritating issue for us was the lack of umbrellas and covered lounge chairs at the south pool (quiet pool). The pool is nice, no blaring music and for the most part was relaxing. There were only two umbrellas, one stationary and one movable for the entire pool. Those few lounge chairs that came with a shade, did not fully function. Because the shade could not be tightened to remain overhead a breeze would cause them to collapse. As others have posted, we learned that the resort (not the time-share company) is responsible for the outdoor amenities. If I were an owner at this location, I would be communicating my displeasure with the Board of Directors. I would request that they hold the resort management accountable to furnish the south pool with adequate seating and shade. It was also curious that the south pool has a nice large jacuzzi but, it is not heated. We had read other posts about employee issues of which we had none. On the contrary, we found all of the Marriott employees to be both friendly and helpful. As for St. Kitts, we rented a car this year and enjoyed the flexibility of getting out to see more of the island. Our trips took us to Turtle Beach with lunch at Spice Mill (not worth the arduous pot holed filled drive or expensive cab fare); dinner and lunch at Carambola (great beach when cruise ships are not in port, with wonderful food and great Caribbean view); dinner at Serendipity (great); Sunday brunch at Ottley's Plantation (not worth the drive or cab fare); drove to the Pavilion but it was too windy to sit through an expensive dinner; and of course, the Strip (we like Shiggidy Shack). Currently, we believe that Marriott has the best beach resort on St. Kitts - but Hyatt is coming so perhaps that may force Marriott to pay more attention to detail.
