Overview

Ample amenities, including a casino, five restaurants and a golf course
Recent guests said that most accommodations were dated
This luxury resort, flanking Frigate Bay along St. Kitts' southeastern coast, lures travelers looking for a low-key tropical getaway. Accommodations feature bright green and blue accents, traditional or modern furnishings, minifridges, flat-screen TVs and Wi-Fi access (for a fee). Recent visitors warned that most of the rooms could benefit from a refresh. However, many said that having access to a handful of facilities – including a large pool complex, a white sand beach, a spa, a casino and the Royal St. Kitts Golf Club – left little reason to leave the resort grounds. Plus, this Marriott outpost boasts five restaurants that specialize in everything from fresh seafood to Italian cuisine, as well as two grab-and-go eateries and a lobby bar. If you're a member of the Marriott Bonvoy program, you can earn or use points by choosing to stay here.

Critic Reviews

Fodor's

This big, bustling beachfront resort offers something for everyone from families to conventioneers, golfers to gamblers. It's overscaled for tiny St. Kitts and somewhat lacking in West Indian charm and flair, though at least dining outlets have started incorporating more local ingredients and recipes.

This ... resort is a Marriott for certain, but it's on the higher end for the chain (certain aspects are on par with the Four Seasons Resort, and it's nicer than the Nisbet in Nevis). This is thanks mostly to grounds' very updated look: paint and masonry look fresh, and the spacious rooms have flat-screen TVs and plenty of natural light (though decor is generic).

St. Kitts Marriott Resort is large and boisterous for its petite, sleepy island home, but the spacious property means few crowds (except for the breakfast buffet in the sleek, modern Calypso Restaurant with tasteful – not tacky – bamboo dividers). If the steel drums every become too much, escape to the 125-acre link-style golf course, or the unabashedly Caribbean Emerald Mist Spa.
