My wife and I came to Nisbet with our two grown children (23 & 22) and their significant others. We have been to Nisbet numerous times throughout the years and our kids essentially grew up coming to Nisbet. As always it was fantastic. A wonderful place to really relax and unwind. Specifically: 1. The staff was awesome. Every single staff member, from housekeeping, to grounds to the breakfast, lunch and dinner teams, to the bartenders, to the kitchen/chefs and the office were so friendly and accommodating and seemed genuinely happy to see us and be there. 2. The food was outstanding. We have been coming for years and Chef Tony and his team continue to raise their game. Everything was fresh and not too heavy with a great variety. The deserts were also fantastic. 3. The rooms were perfect. They are not fancy (on purpose). Simple elegance. You really feel like you are away (no in room TVs) and in the Caribbean. The comfy beds,air conditioning (if you want) and the local tree frogs outside make for a wonderful sleep. 4. The grounds were in great shape. You would never know two hurricanes blew through this fall. 5. The guests were tons of fun. The guests always make Nisbet. Different crowd than the Four Seasons. The place attracts a more relaxed and less fussy clientele (in my opinion.) This time was really great. We were overtaken by the British invasion and had a great time partying with all the guests. The Beach BBQ on Thursday night was a winner with a great band and lead singers. 6. The island was doing well. We toured around and the island felt really prosperous. Lots of great restaurants and places to see. Don't want to miss the Botanical Gardens.

We had the pleasure of having our Christmas dinner at this wonderful place. The service was outstanding as well as the food and drink. The staff even sang Christmas carols before dinner was served. Overall, it was a wonderful experience for our entire family. The grounds are impeccable as well. Part of my family stayed in one of the beautiful cottages. Can't wait until our next trip!

Yes, Nisbet is a wonderful resort hotel. The rooms are charming and large, the beach is superb, the food is of the highest quality and you could not meet finer, kinder people than the manager Tim, his wife Tina and the entire staff. But my husband and I had a unique experience here: he had a heart attack on Christmas Eve. The staff in the restaurant and bar flew into action to help us. Tim and Tina arrived in a moment. The ambulance came and off we went to the hospital. I was driven by Terrence, the hotel's security officer. He stayed with me for 4 hours at the hospital. Either he or Tina drove me to the hospital over the next 2 days. On Christmas Day and throughout the rest of the week I was cared for and cherished like family here. When my husband got "home" from the hospital nothing was too much for these wonderful people to do. Hopefully we get home safely today and I've already booked our Christmas 2018 with our new family.

It's become an annual December pilgrimage to Paradise for us. As beautiful as ever with virtually no signs of the hurricane season just passed. Indeed work has been done to protect Coconuts and Sea Breeze by extending the sea defences so that the bar, restaurant (and kitchen) no longer get flooded out by a combination of high tide and onshore wind. The property looks lovely with a lot of work having been done on the plantings around the cottages and everything seems to have been in bloom while we were there. Chef Tony still presides over the superb food at the Great House restaurant and Elsa takes care of breakfast and lunch at Coconuts and Sea Breeze - the sheer variety of top quality food is amazing and our scales attest to our appreciation! Once again a beautiful experience and our thanks to Tim and all his people - we'll be back next year.

My husband and I really enjoyed our visit to Nisbet beach. It’s beautiful and not too crowded, with comfortable chairs. Well maintained, and close to the bar and restaurant. The grounds are stunning, too. Definitely worth a visit!

We stayed over Christmas and what a memorable experience it was! Wonderful Christmas Day dinner with homemade extra tasty eggnog. Most importantly, we felt like part of a big family. Tim and Tina made us feel very welcome, even with our three little ones. The staff sang beautiful Christmas songs and performed lovingly. Rooms are beautiful. Food is fantastic. Right on the ocean - what's not to love about this place?

It is now a month since we returned from our now annual visit to Nevis, and every dull damp December morning we remember the joy of waking up to the sound of the surf and the warm Caribbean sunshine at the simply wonderful Nisbet Plantation resort. There are probably better and more luxurious hotels in the world offering glitz and glamour, but for true and total relaxation in a sublime tropical setting when the weather back home in Europe is poor, Nevis and in particular the Nesbit and all it's wonderful staff is in our opinion, unbeatable. The choice of excellent food with a menus changing totally and daily is impressive. It has now become home from 'home for us' every November.

I've gone by here many times, and even swung down to the beach bar restaurant for lunch, but recently I stayed on site for a couple of nights. Wonderful!!! Everything from the staff, to the accommodations, to the regular restaurant, it's ALL top shelf. It's an incredible location, and everything was better than my expectations. Not crowded... superb, relatively isolated bungalows; this is about the personal stay, not volume-based marketing to move a lot of people through. This will remain high on my list of choices whenever possible! 8^)

This beautiful boutique resort is the ultimate in relaxation. My husband and I wanted to "get away" from real life's daily hustle and bustle and that is exactly what we did at Nisbet. From the moment you get out of the taxi, driven by Nevis' own, Calvin, and step onto Nisbet Plantation, the attention to detail is apparent. The property, gardens and beaches are perfectly manicured, the cottages are adorable and the staff is first class. The beauty of the whole resort is breath-taking. We commented to the manager, Tim, that pictures did not even do it justice. You just have to see it and experience it. It takes about a day to absorb all of your surroundings and take a deep breath and realize that you are in paradise. As so many of the previous reviews have stated, the staff at Nisbet are incredible! They learn your name, you learn their names and you feel like you are on vacation visiting your friends. Upon Arrival, We were greeted by the manager of the property, Tim, who introduced us to Jeheida, at the front desk, who escorted us to our perfect little cottage called "Gingerland." We settled in and went to the fun and scenic beach bar and met Akeem, who made a delicious rum punch for us and gave us lots of great ideas and recommendations for things to do on the Island during our vacation. At the Great House, we were greeted by the lovely Angela, who showed us to our table overlooking the Aisle of Palms with a tropical breeze blowing in. The dinner at The Great House is so good that everytime we dined at another restaurant on the Island we would look at eachother and say "that was good but not quite as good as Nisbet!" Each morning we enjoyed the warm smiles of Violet, Glendina and Melissa. We looked forward to seeing these friendly ladies each morning. The breakfast is very good in the tropical, breezy little restaurant by the pool and ocean. Anything you wish to do during your stay can be arranged by the front desk staff. Keoina and Jeheida were particularly helpful to us throughout our stay. My husband celebrated his birthday while we were there and the entire team made his special day very memorable with a personalized dinner menu, birthday card and gift in our cottage, and hugs from all of the staff as well as a decorated dessert plate at the Great House after dinner. You can do as much or as little as you like at Nisbet. The beautiful Island of Nevis, in my opinion, is more suited to the seasoned traveler who does not need to be entertained constantly and appreciates the natural beauty and individuality of each Caribbean Island and enjoys local culture. It was absolutely perfect for us exactly what we were hoping for. We are looking forward to returning to Nevis someday and cannot imagine staying anywhere other than Nisbet!

This is just to reiterate everything I posted about this wonderful hotel last year. I have been coming here with my wife for many years until this year, when she very sadly passed away. However, I just had to see my second family once again and my daughter accompanied me this time. Although a rather "bitter sweet" experience, we had a wonderful holiday. All i wish to add to last year's posting is to say how very sympathetic and supportive were the members of staff who knew her so well,. It really was moving to say the least, and I know I have real friends for life in Nisbet.. Read my 2016 posting, and have no doubt that if you holiday here, you will receive the same warmth and kindness which will persuade you to repeat your visit time and again.
