Only My Third 5 Star

Those of you who follow my reviews know that I rarely give a 5 star rating to a hotel or restaurant. I gave the Thursday night buffet four stars After a 3 night stay I have decided to give the hotel operation as well as the food and bar operation 5 stars. Tim (the GM) deserves it. Most of the reviews encapsulate the hotel operation as well as I could. There are only two downsides. I think the raised bed on a pedestal is a danger to all. We missed the step several times. The second is the beach. While beautiful to see the locale attracts sewers. So what makes it a 5 star? Attention to detail and guest comfort and needs that is exceptional. Breakfasts are generous. But there is always someone at the table for special needs. The bar service is generous but the staff makes sure you don’t have to ask for a second round. Dinner is the same. My wife needs some assistance and a cart was always easily available—with a driver who smiled as if it was his privilege to help out. We left for the airport very early one morning. At 4 am a cart was there with a smiling driver. The kitchen left us a small breakfast. Just another instance of service above and beyond. The Four Seasons gives good service. But it’s bought and paid for. The staff is polite but generally sour. At Nisbett the staff serves because it’s their pleasure to do so. So....it gets the fifth star.


Rooms are beautiful. Food is delicious. Service is impeccable. Beach bar is fun and has a great vibe. Thursday night buffet is fabulous. Dinner at Big House is romantic and quiet. We totally loved our experience at this beautiful location.

Nisbet - The Best By Far!

Where should I begin? Nisbet has upped their game yet again on our 4th visit there! We returned July 2019 after spending our 50th wedding anniversary there Sept. 2018. I became quite ill on the 2nd night there, a recurrence of kidney failure I suffered 5 years ago. My wife, a nurse, immediately contacted Pam, the Resort Manager, who put her in touch with a doctor without delay. Pam informed Tim the General Manager, and they promptly arranged for an ambulance to take me to the Nevis hospital. The hospital conferred with my doctor in the U.S. and they kept me overnight for IV treatment. Fortunately, my kidneys returned to proper function and we were able to continue our 12 night stay, though with limited activity. When my wife returned for the night from the hospital Rosalyn in the Great House promptly told her not to worry, and then had her supper sent to our room! What a wonderful person she is as has been attested every time we have been to Nisbet. We love her. She even called the hospital twice to check on me! The genuine concern and compassion shown by Tim, Pam, Roslyn, Violet at breakfast and lunch at Coconuts, Angela at the restaurants, the gentlemen who would pick me up in the golf carts and take me to the beach and the great house and back, Calvin the taxi driver, Dan and Kaddie and Winston the bartenders, everyone we came into contact with were so cheerful and helpful. There is no doubt in our minds that the nicest people in the world live on Nevis and work at Nisbet! (I hope I didn't forget to mention anyone as there are so many wonderful people there).
