Rocks at beach:

At lower tide I realized that one half of the beach is full of submerged rocks, I will also add photos on Instagram.
This is he area with the most seaweed. At the other half of the beach there are almost no rocks, it is in the area with the black sand.
I snorkeled today, wasnít very special, I just saw a few fish, low visibility. But others told me, they saw a seaturtle.

Today after breakfast the Hotel beach and pool suddenly got very busy. I was wondering, where all the people came from.
At first I thought it was because of the long Memorial day weekend.
But than I realized that today there were 2 cruiseships (RCCL and Carnival) were in St. Kitts today, so they were probably from the ships.
Even when it got busy, it was still very quiet, as most of th visitors were older couples. It wasnít comparable to the 2$-beer crowd at the neighboring Cockleshell Beach.
After 3 pm it was empy again.

The neighboring Cockleshell Beach was very busy and full of Cruise people. Yesterday all the bars and watersport rentals there were closed. It seems, they only open when a ship is in town.

We recently stayed here in a Park Executive suite and enjoyed a wonderful stay. Essentially, the suite comes with a full-size pool and a large deck (both currently depicted in the property photo on the Hyatt app). We didnít really leave our suite very often as room service was very responsive and quite reasonably priced.

Areas of improvement: Pools should be heated and some of the F&B should be improved (fresh pressed juice, quality pastries).

How did you get the park executive? Did you book that room or were you upgraded?

When I was there, juices were quite fresh but fruit isn't great so you can only do what you can do. I thought pastries were quite delicious... especially the danishes. This was at the breakfast buffet...not sure what they deliver as room service.

So far our stay is excellent, no service issues, all of the staff is extremely friendly and helpful. Everyone is smiling and in good mood.
Breakfast is very good, huge buffet with high quality.

Has anyone added night(s) on either side of their stay at the PH elsewhere on the islands that they could recommend? Belle Mont Farm looks really nice, but wondering if anyone has any recommendations.

The Four Seasons Nevis could be a nice option (short water taxi from St. Kitts). I have had several clients combine this with PH St. Kitts. There is a 4th Night Free offer that includes a $250 resort credit, and this can combine with the Four Seasons Preferred Partner amenities (similar to Privť benefits) when booked through a FSPP travel advisor. Any FSPP travel advisor can check rates and availability for you.

Thanks! I only need to add a single night before my four night stay at the PH, and was on the track that it may make more sense to stay on St Kitts somewhere, and explore Nevis at some point during the stay at PH. I arrive early afternoon, so enough time to spend half a day "doing something".

Thanks for the suggestion, though!

I was wondering the same thing and Belle Mont Farm also appeared on my radar. Nice photos and price wise attractive too (BTW, they currently have a Memorial Sale going on with 35% off on best flexible). However, most likely Iíll split the PH with FS as the golf course is allegedly way better there (well, the greenfees are inversely correlated ) and it should only be a short water taxi ride away. However, the advantage of Belle Mont Farm is being on the same island as the PH (but well, to be fair, itís on the other end of the island, so still around 30 min by car).

But any experience with the Belle Mont Farm here?

Yeah I too noticed the 35% off sale this weekend. My dates, it came out to $172, but probably would still go with the $242 FHR rate which includes breakfast and $100.

If I add Nevis to the mix, I was also looking at Montpelier Plantation. Looks like there is a similar 35% sale booking thru the OTA's which brought the rate down to $150 (and includes breakfast). The pics/reviews make it seem very similar to Belle Mont Farm.

Ah, thanks for pointing out that Belle Mont Farm is part of the FHR collection too, totally forgot to check! Then yes, the FHR rate is way more attractive (taking the credit and the breakfast into account). Definitely something to consider then.

Anyone know how the credit works for the 4th night free promo? Is it like a gift card for incidentals (i.e. "You spent $700 while here, not including your room cost. After the credit, your bill is $100.") or is it like the credit that is essentially mediocre/useless resort coupons some places give out (i.e. "$30 off a $150+ massage, $10 off our $40 breakfast, $50 off room upgrades, etc.")?

The former.
