B&B-like, folksy, vintagePosted Dec 24, 2015
Pros: The service is good, with a folksy style. Staff is unpretentious but maybe not quite as attentive as you'd expect at a five-star resort. Food was good
Cons: My main issue with the resort is the vintage nature of the amenities. The room does not have central a/c but rather one of those retrofitted units.
Location: The resort is at the far northern tip of the island, close to the airport. There is really nothing to do in the area. Charlestown is a 20-30 mins away
This resort gets top-notch ratings in travel magazines, usually out-ranking the Four Seasons Nevis as the best resort on the island. I strongly disagree. This resort is not terribly luxurious. The service is good, with a folksy style. Staff is unpretentious but maybe not quite as attentive as you'd expect at a five-star resort. The food is pretty good overall. I enjoyed every meal I had except for the Thursday night beach barbecue. The resort has the most unusual layout I've ever seen. There is a main building which I presume was the residence of the 18th-19th century plantation owners. The actual guest rooms are in little cottages spread throughout the rest of the property, which is just a field of grass with palm trees everywhere. The pool area is nice, and the beach is pretty small. My main issue with the resort is the vintage nature of the amenities. The room does not have central a/c but rather one of those retrofitted units. The furnishings in the guest room are like those at your grandma's house. Wicker furniture. Small shower. Balky sink faucets. An actual key (not a swipe card) to get in the room. Closet-sized fitness center. Definitely not modern and not luxurious.

Anniversary tripPosted Oct 31, 2015
Pros: Personal service and attention to detail. Food was fantastic.
Cons: Ipod Docking station in the rooms.
Location: We loved Nevis. Rented a car and saw most of the island in 3 days. Go to see Golden Rocks. Fun places to eat off the resort were Bannana's&Sunshine
Great Hotel. Personal attention is fantastic here. All staff know you by first name and work very hard to make your stay very special. The food was really very good. I loved the diningroom in the great house. Somethings which would be nice: Ipod docking station in the room for music. Things to know. No TV in room, but there is one in the main house where we were able to watch the Patriots game. Beach is small but very private.

Simply the Best!Posted Aug 15, 2015 on CheapTickets
First time in Nevis, the staff at the Nesbitt were all genuinely warm, friendly, and accommodating. The property was well cared for, the duplex cottages were roomy, the décor tropical, and the vibe relaxing, romantic, and exciting! We enjoyed the island, all of it! The people, monkeys, donkeys, the hot bath, we had so many wonderful experiences! We'll be back!

Classic carribean resort on beach.Posted May 25, 2015
Pros: The beautiful grounds and beach, well appointed rooms, good food and personalized service
Location: Idyllic setting. Take funky monkey tour of the island. Visit the botanical gardens and some of the other small resorts. Visit a beach bar. Go for long
We spent our honeymoon in this perfect resort. The service and personal attention were unmatched. The staff was friendly, attentive and fun. Nevis is a quiet and laid back island to slow down and relax on. Don't go here if you want wild night life, high end shopping or lots of people

Charming ResortPosted Sep 10, 2014
Pros: The relaxed atmosphere, the attentive staff, the lovely grounds overlooking the sea, the private beach and the delicious food.
Cons: Nothing I can think of.
Location: Beachside location. Exploring the island.
We recently had a wonderfuly relaxing stay at the the charming Nisbet Plantation Resort. The staff were incredibly welcoming, friendly and attentive. Everyone immediately addressed you by your first name. We were attending a friend's wedding and nothing was too much trouble which helped to make their day so special. Everything from breakfast by the beach to dinner in The Great House where Nelson had lived was lovely. You just didn't want to leave.

Lovely, as alwaysPosted Jul 20, 2014
Obviously, as repeat guests, we must like this hotel A LOT! And we do indeed love the Nisbet experience. The setting is beautiful, we love that breeze off the ocean and the staff are amazing. The food is good with lots of choices and a nice mix of informal beach BBQ nights and more elegant dining in the GreatHouse. The location and hotel are lovely but it is the outstanding staff that really make Nisbet a winner.
