Stayed at the Marriott. If you have any questions about the area ask away
How late do the restaurants stay open in the evening at the Marriott? We arrive on a Thursday at 8:50 pm so we may want to grab a light dinner around 10:00 or whenever we get there.Edited: 05 April 2017, 07:36
Hello. We will be going to St. Kitts May 1st with a 2 adult sonsages 24 and 28. Is there a lot to do at the resort? Did you find any good restaurants? How about the restaurants on the premise? One more thing, should we rent a car?
There are 6 or 7 on premises dining venues at the Marriott. FYI - There are about a dozen other restaurants and beach bars within a 3 to 15 minute walk of the resort.
If you plan on going off resort to explore the entire island you should consider renting a car for all or part of your stay. Taxis get expensive - A R/T taxi ride to the some locations at far ends of the island will cost you more than the daily cost of a car rental.
As far as "things to do at the resort" it depends on what type of activities interest your adult sons. Go to the resort's website for a list of what's available "on-resort". As you can imagine there's plenty of different activities available off-resort
how much of an 'island' feel does the marriott have please? is there 'entertainment' on site like bands? can you say something about the easy to get to local restaurants and beach bars... menu? music? thxEdited: 08 April 2017, 00:24
The Marriott is like any other Marriott anywhere.
Occasionally they have on site live entertainment.
There are at least a dozen restaurants & beach bars within a 3 to 12 minute walk of the hotel - everything from low end casual to high end.
Honestly we felt misled about how "close" the beach restaurant "strip" was. It was about a 20 minute walk for us. We also didn't realize a busy traffic circle would need to be crossed to access it. After the first time we just took a cab from in front of the Marriott there and back . It gets very dark. There was a poplular "pub" almost just across the street from the Marriott property. Unfortunately it was closed the week we were there. The small group of shops/restaurants was an easy walk which included Rituals, a very good Italian restaurant, small market and more. "Island Feel" has different meaning for diff Travelers. To Me, Nevis has an "island feel". St Kitts is a larger property and this is a large Marriott Property. I would say it is similar to Frenchman's on St Thomas and to Ocean Pointe Palm Beach. The beach is lovely. The Spa great. The restaurants ok.
We will be staying at the Marriott in June and will be traveling with my 6 year old son and my mom. Any suggestions for activities for the kiddo?Edited: 19 April 2017, 10:25
I would def schedule an island tour. It is a beautiful Island and the high elevations You visit at the Fort and Romney Manor are breathtaking. Even a short walk at the fort is worthwhile. We liked Johnson's VIP Tours. You can stop when/where you want and the price is reasonable. Be sure to have Your camera. Bring along some beach toys for Your Son to enjoy on Marriotts beach. (kite, inflatable raft, pail/shovel etc) He can join other kids for activities. There is a small pizza restaurant by the pool and they have ice cream at night. Bring sunscreen and bug repellant as it is pricey there and just handy to have when you arrive. I would bring him a rashguard top as well the sun will be strong.
How is the water? Safe? Taste ok?
