Ocean Terrace Inn

St Kitts, St Kitts and Nevis

The hotel

It’s all about the island experience at Ocean Terrace Inn – a place where Friday nights are spent dancing to the sounds of steel drums and indulging in souse roast pork, salt fish and dumplings, and curry chicken at the weekly West Indies Buffet. But, this is the Caribbean, so doing absolutely nothing’s also on the table. The curvaceous lagoon pool’s the setting for most of your lazy days, with its waterfalls, swim-up bar, and palm trees completing the hotel’s tropical look. And lazy nights are best spent gazing out at Basseterre Bay and Nevis from The Verandah’s wraparound deck as you dine, or feasting on seafood grills at Fisherman’s Wharf, a restaurant set on a Caribbean Sea-skimming pier. If you do desire a bit of action, you’re just a hop from Basseterre and complimentary shuttle trip from white sandy beaches.

I will never go to this hotel again! Too many stairs to walk up and down no elevator, no microwave in Superior suite, ice machine down for 2 days, no breakfast meats at the hotel restaurant, reported to management and all they say is sorry for inconvenience , no refund or credit or nothing!

We booked this location at the last minute. Our flights were all late that day, I phoned the hotel to advise we would be a late check in but don’t giveaway our room. As we walked through the door in the lobby the very professional young lady at the counter, greeted us by name. Wow I was shocked and pleased with the hospitality. From that point on… Read more
We booked this location at the last minute. Our flights were all late that day, I phoned the hotel to advise we would be a late check in but don’t giveaway our room. As we walked through the door in the lobby the very professional young lady at the counter, greeted us by name. Wow I was shocked and pleased with the hospitality. From that point on our stay there was perfect. The overview to the Caribbean is beautiful, the hotel pool is very nice size with beautiful landscaping. The room is a very nice size with comfortable beds. And yes it does have a/c!! The bathroom is a true master bathroom space, is also large with a bathtub and a separate shower. There is a safe for your peace of mind. The only negative was that our cable not local tv didn’t work at all. The maintenance man said the hotel has known about this for weeks and weeks and nothing has been done. He was apologetic but that was our last night so we really didn’t worry. My husband with lower back problems, said the mattress sleeps wonderfully!!! Read less

Great low key resort right off of downtown Basseterre. Suggest this hotel for couples seeking a quiet escape with access to urban scene. Not much for young children. Beautiful view of the city and harbor, pool is a tropical garden oasis surrounded by warm volcanic basalt. Reasonable rates, suggest the all inclusive but consider eating at… Read more

The hotel is locally owned which makes it a better deal than the other chains. The view of the ocean is breathtaking but there is no beach to walk to nearby.

The hotel is locally owned which makes it a better deal than the other chains. The view of the ocean is breathtaking but there is no beach to walk to nearby. However, the hotel provides a shuttle to a beach nearby. The staff is helpful and friendly. Always willing to attempt to resolve any issue that may arise. The downside is no elevators on the property but the staff can help with luggage. There is no business center just in case you need to use it. Overall, St. Kitts is a developing island so do not expect 5 star (American standard) accommodations. Read less
