Been there, done that...our least favorite Caribbean island. Whenever St. Kitts is mentioned all I can think of is how DH sings.....Never,ever going there again...my very own weird Al
It was one of the few islands we didn't rent a car. The cost of taxis was beyond obnoxious, we are not resort sitters. We like to go, see, and explore. We easily spent $100/day on taxis. We also didn't like the "we have a locals price for groceries and a screw you the visitors price". Restaurants were very very expensive even for simple fare. We have found all of our other travels to be fairly priced i.e. St. Marteen, Hawaii, St. Thomas etc.
Then there was the party atmosphere of the medical students. They were everywhere and loud and drunk...think spring break towns. They were even at the Marriott, at the pool, the beach...a big frat party.
We had a fine time but see no reason to ever go back when we have so many places we like better and so many places yet unseen....the airfare is also more $$$$ to get to St . Kitts than just about any other island.
Let's just say St.Kitts didn't leave us with a good feeling about St. Kitts.
Lots of beautiful Caribbean islands to get R&R at that are nicer, more beautiful, and reasonably priced. Our personal favorite ST. Marteen wish Marriott had a timeshare there, might even get me to cough up the big bucks to buy direct.
We stayed at Marriott in St Kitts in 2004 when the resort had just recently opened. Although we enjoyed the trip, the island hasn't drawn me back.
