We just got back from Ti Kaye a few days ago. It was a fantastic experience! The service is impeccable, location is to be envied, and the private cottages give a real authentic experience with plenty of luxury. They truly have thought of everything. From the cabana placement on the beach to the rocking chairs with footstools on your own private deck. Not to mention the 2 person hammock overlooking the most gorgeous view of the Carribean sea from the comfort of your own deck. We also loved the outdoor shower. So unique and refreshing!The only negative about the room is that the bed is very firm, I had a hard time sleeping.
The food was excellent too! Although looking back we would have NOT purchased the meal plan and would have just eaten free style. They don't tell you but there are supplemental charges to certain items on the menu even with the plan, so the extra money you think you're going to save is not going to happen at all. Nevertheless, the dining room is the most romantic, intimate setting under the stars I've ever seen. All of the servers are friendly and personable in the most warm and sincere way.
We did the Piton climb and the rainforest that we were able to book right through the hotel. Both were fun and we also enjoyed taking the free kayak around to the other bays nearby. Snorkeling was pretty cool. Lots of colorful reef and fish right in your own bay. Even Sandals boats were coming over to Ti Kayes bay on snorkel and dive trips. However, I do wish they kept the snorkeling gear in a more sanitary condition. The only negatives about the beach is that the blackish brown sand is scorching hot during the day. But that's not something the resort can help bc it's due to the volcanic nature of the island. We just started wearing our flips everywhere. One other thing we didn't enjoy too much was being approached by the "vendors" on the beach, but every beach has them and we did end up buying a few pretty necklaces and such. There is round the clock security.
All in all we love Ti Kaye and the people. Would absolutely return and I don't think any other carribean resort is going to live up to it. If you choose Ti Kaye be prepared to be waited on hand and foot. It took us a few days to get used to that. One other tip is that even though the activities are really cool and there is so much to do on the island make sure you take plenty of time just to relax and just soak it all in.
