We returned for the first time in June for our honeymoon. If anything we enjoyed Nisbet more second time round. A few new innovations we noticed and appreciated were Tim's early morning walk and the addition of a great local band on Sunday lunchtimes. Patterson's pub crawl was so much fun we went twice. On this visit we hired a car and explored the island. I highly recommend that you do this. It was much easier driving than we anticipated though for the most part we stuck to the main roads. We also did the funky monkey tour early in our visit which was great fun and served as a recee. The other really wonderful thing about Nisbet is the lovely people it seems to attract. Staff are outstanding but it also draws interesting and fun guests many of which return again and again to Nisbet. The bar and all the activities are great for socialising if that is what you want to do but the mystery is where everyone goes during the day. With the various areas on the property you almost always seem to have it to yourself. Would I return? You bet. My bags are packed and I fly tomorrow.

My wife and I enjoyed our 10 night stay at Nisbet plantation...superb location and the staff there are brilliant and looked after us extremely well . Even Hurricane Irma couldn't dampen our spirits! ...our thanks to all the staff for making our stay memorable and enjoyable .

We live in Puerto Rico and flew over to Nevis for a night. What an unexpected surprise! Lovely staff. Nice rooms. Breakfast and pool at the beach - afternoon tea which we were not able to stay long enough to try. We had thought to leave and go elsewhere for dinner. If we had, we'd have missed the extremely wonderful dinner. The bar and lounge area was atmospheric and cozy. You don't get how much so from the site photos. For dinner I had the mahi mahi and my other half ordered lamb which was amazing! He's very hard to please where lamb is concerned and went nuts over how wonderful it was. We sat at a table on the upper floor of the enclosed porch overlooking the aisle of palms and beach. It's not even been 2 weeks, and we're going back this weekend and taking friends! That's how much we enjoyed Nevis and Nisbet Plantation and the staff there!

My wife & I have just returned from a 2 week stay at Nisbet Plantation Beach Club. we arrived on one of the twice weekly flights from London operated by British Airways to St. Kitts. We were staying on an All-inclusive basis. We were met at the airport by a representative from the hotel, we had a 20 minute taxi journey to Cockleshell bay, where we boarded a boat for Nevis. The crossing took less than 10 minutes, we were met by a taxi for the 5 minute drive to the hotel. On arrival at reception we were given drinks (alcoholic or non-alcoholic) , collected our keys and were shown to our Premier room (lower) called Hamilton , named after Alexander Hamilton (of the $10 bill fame.) Our luggage was delivered promptly . The room was spacious , bed was large and comfortable,there is no TV. The mini-bar was all chargeable including water, even for all-inclusive customers. Shower was over the bath tub - water was hot with decent pressure all times. A safe (free to use) is provided. Tea & coffee facilities are provided as well as an iron and ironing board. Wi-Fi was strong in the room and all over the site. Speed was usable for most things. Pool & Beach area - the pool has 2 depth areas, three feet & five feet . Plenty of sunbeds and shade. Beach is a good size with decent sand - Seaweed is a problem on all Atlantic coasts of Caribbean Islands over the last few years. The beach is raked daily and staff attempt to keep on top of it. Breakfast - is served in the Coconut restaurant on the beach , buffet style for fruit & cereals etc, hot selections including specials can be ordered from the kitchen. There is a daily juice special too. Lunch - Served in the Sea Breeze Beach Bar. Lots of choice of local food including daily lunch specials. The bar serves all manner of international drinks including cocktails. Dinner - Served in the Great House - we normally had a drink or two from the restaurant bar before our meal. the menu changed every night with 4 courses including several special dishes. Red , white & rose wines were very good, Prosecco available too. Everything was based on local availability and was excellent during our stay. Weather - was mostly good, a few overnight rainstorms - a constant cool breeze blows across the grounds and is very welcome on warm days. We had a very relaxed stay at Nisbet Plantation Beach Club and would recommend this hotel to the Trip Advisor Community. We also recommend guests to consider the menu specials available at all mealtimes, they were all very enjoyable especially fish. I hope you find my review helpful.

We visited on two consecutive Thursdays for the barbecue buffet. It is very good fun - it starts with a manager's cocktail party by the beach with unlimited rum punches and then moves on to the meal. There is soup and then a buffet with both fish and meat. The dessert buffet is very good but we were too full to really do it justice either week. Very much recommended. There is music and dancing - if you had enough rum punches......

We arrived at Nisbet in dire need of relaxation - that's exactly what we got. The staff are exceptionally friendly and helpful, Tim and Tina are genuinely welcoming (you must join them on their morning walk) and the location is idyllic. Before we left yesterday, I lay in a hammock on the stunning beach watching a pelican fly overhead and vowed to return. Thank you to everyone at Nisbet for a wonderful holiday.

Our family had the most wonderful vacation ever at Nisbet. The property is beautiful, our cottage was so pleasant, and the staff is superb. The beach and pool areas are stunning. It was such a treat to have tea each afternoon. I wish we had more of this custom in the US. The food each night was out of this world--the best I have ever had. Roslyn made every night so special and was so kind to us. I can't stop thinking about the lemon cheesecake! Violet and Glendina greeted us each morning with their sweet smiles and coconut pancakes. I miss these three ladies! The staff helped us arrange an island tour, mountain climb, and a catamaran/snorkeling tour to St. Kitts. We had so much fun on these excursions! Nisbet is a rare gem and gives you the true Caribbean experience. I can't imagine going anywhere else!

My wife and two children have been coming to Nevis for 15 years. We have stayed at Nisbet Plantation for the last 10 years. Why year after year? Because it is an exceptional experience. Pick up at St Kitts Airport, taxi, boat taxi and ending with Calvin to Nisbet- easy , comfortable and safe. Staff- Housekeeping to General Manager Tim- Excellent. Tim and his wife, Tina, take the guests on a 5 mile walk a few times a week- well worth it. My wife and I went twice and loved it. Great time to meet other guests, meet locals, sight seeing , exercising and of course great information from Tim and Tina. Rooms- very clean and nice. Not fancy but I think appropriate and comfortable. Food- Always excellent. 10 years !! Always excellent. That is saying a lot. Grounds are in very good shape and always being made better. I strongly suggest renting a car. We always do. The island has a lot of history and places to explore. Take that side "road" , "path"- drive down it, you never know what you will see or experience but I can tell you it is a lot of fun. People are very nice. We would drive with our window down and say hi to people and wave as we drove by. The locals always smile and wave back. Very friendly island. It is hard to pass up the great meals at Nisbet but there are lots of places to eat on the island for lunch and dinner. This is getting too long- Thanks Nisbet Plantation staff, for an excellent stay. It is like our second home.

Nisbet is a treasure and a gift for those who want to stay at a historic plantation built in the 1700s. The staff is lovely, accommodating, kind and genuine. The food is fantastic and for foodies, this is your haven! Nisbet has everything needed for a romantic getaway. My husband and I were married at Nisbet 12 years ago and it was like stepping back into time, everyone remembered us and made us feel welcome and special. Nisbet will always be home for us, it is sure not to disappoint. A place to unwind, relax and escape!

Our visit to the island and staying at the Plantation was an exceptional experience. We were warmly greeted by the manager while exiting the taxi. The receptionists were friendly and so nice, loved the welcome drink. Our luggage was taken to our room, before we got there. Our room was perfect, second floor we could hear the beach, see the waves and breathe the gorgeous air. The atmosphere was totally relaxing. We explored the resort, changed and had a delicious dinner. Every meal was delicious. We wouldn't have changed a thing. All the staff were friendly, nothing was overlooked. I actually believe they enjoy their jobs and in their sincerity. Grounds are beautifully kept. My only issue, not enough time there. We plan on going back next year for our anniversary.
