Unlike many other islands in the Caribbean, St. Kitts is still pristine and innocent. If you are lucky enough to visit this beautiful oasis, there are few hotel options as development is in its’ infancy. Fortunately, there is a wonderful beachfront resort option: the St. Kitts Marriott Resort & The Royal Beach Casino.
St. Kitts Marriott Resort is ideally located on the Atlantic Ocean in Frigate Bay. During our visits, we have noticed there are two types of travelers: those who stay on the resort and those who venture off the property. The resort caters to both. On-site, the resort has several restaurants and bars, a pristine beach and lovely pool, shops, health club, spa, casino, and golf course. For those that wish to explore the island, the resort is located within walking distance to several shops, bars, and restaurants. To venture further than on foot, taxi service is easily obtained. If you wish to rent a vehicle, a car rental agency is located on site.
Upon arrival at the resort, you are greeted with a friendly smiles and a welcome cocktail. The staff makes your stay at the Marriott truly exceptional. We have stayed at the resort several times over the past few years. During each stay, Kevis (at the front desk) and Andre (with front door assistance) go out of their way to make our visit even more comfortable and special. The rooms are spacious and clean. If you get a chance, splurge for a balcony! The housekeeping staff is very thorough and prompt. One place we recommend is the casino. Even if you aren’t a “casino” person, definitely stop by the bar and enjoy their wonderful rum punch. The bar in the casino is less crowded than the pool, so you get a chance to chat with the bartenders and fellow vacationers. One of our criteria for a great pool/beach area is lounge chair availability. During our visits, there is never a problem with getting a chair. We are also pleased that the Marriott works Prodivers Scuba. This offers vacationers a chance to learn about SCUBA diving and a chance to practice in the pool. If you wish to take a tour, stop by the concierge desk. There are a number of tours available to suit your needs. We usually venture out on our own, but on one visit we took a rainforest hiking tour. It was a fabulous way to explore the wondrous nature of the island.
St. Kitts Marriott Resort is a terrific place to stay during your visit to the island. It perfectly suits those who wish to stay at the resort entirely as well as those who just return to their room to sleep. The friendly staff, wonderful rooms, and numerous amenities will turn you into a returning visitor as it has us!
