Although not the most sought after destination on the docket of Marriott Hotels, the St. Kitts and Nevis Royal Resort & Casino blew recent vacations out of the water. Ignore the mediocre review that the islands received in Fodor's because the truth of the matter is that this is a lesser-travelled, tranquil Carib oasis. After an elongated wait at customs (of note, everything is slower on the islands...it's a good thing), we were politely whisked away by a taxi that drove us the 10 minutes to our hotel, all while giving us a historical run-down of everything we passed along the route. When we arrived at the hotel, we were notified that our room had been upgraded to a slightly nicer room, which turned out to be a third floor, panoramic ocean view suite. It was gorgeous! Throughout our stay we were engaged in some sort of fascinating activity like: climbing the volcanic Mt. Liamuiga and dining at Ballahoo, Shipreck Cove, and the numerous restaurants on the hotel premises (try the BBQ Chicken Pizza at the pizza stand by the pool). The island is enriched with an entrancing and fascinating history, and is even home the Brimstone Hill Fortress (a UNESCO World Heritage Site). If history or food don't really interest you, perhaps the black sand beaches and flowing alcohol will (try the local Stag and Carib beers or Ting wit a Sting).

(For each location tag, you will be guided through a 3-step process to add (1) a city and a state or a city and a country, (2) a Marriott brand, and (3) a Marriott hotel.)
