I also stayed at the Marriott before the PH, and agree with the previous posters that the Marriott, in comparison, is a dump. But, frankly, that's more a reflection of the fact that the Marriott is, indeed, a dump: the beach is a disaster due to the seaweed (and the earthmoving equipment that was there during my stay), the rooms are time-share quality (keep in mind the property is split between the hotel and Marriott Vacations), and the restaurant was, well, consistent with the rooms. So I wouldn't use the dismal state of the Marriott (whose beach is directly east facing, as opposed to the PH which is southerly) to prop up the (IMHO) quite poor PH beach.

Our wedding anniversary got hijacked last year (had planned a trip to Puerto Rico a week after the hurricane) so this year we are booked for five nights at the Park Hyatt St. Kitts. Definitely looking forward to giving this place a try. We actually booked relatively inexpensive roundtrip flights to Puerto Rico and then booked another inexpensive direct flight from San Juan to St. Kitts on Seaborne Airlines.

Wife & I flew them from SJU to St. Thomas and it was pretty cool. Flew so low to the ground that we could see fish in the water. St. Kitts is a good bit farther but still, that's a nice flight.

just took the seaborne flt. Last week. Only problem for us was the flights arrival and departure times. When we drove in it was dark as itís a 7:15pm arrival. And we had to depart the hotel at 8:30 am for the 9:55 departure.
Thngs that could be helpful:
1) we took cab from airport fir $35.00 and we asked driver to stop at a grocery store to stock upon water , wine , sunscreen, etc. paid 50.00 US dollars tip included
2) even though your boarding pass may say TSA Pre we were asked to open the bag, and anything besides RX labeled tubes or meds had to fit in one qt size ziplock. Wife had to ditch stuff

Just arrived. Stayed at the PH Maldives cat 6, so expectations are high for this cat 7:

-upgrade for being a discoverist! Wasn't expecting that, especially since these were free award nights from promo last year.
-she said they're not full but it looks more crowded than I expected.
-Pool service on island time.
-lots of teenagers
-landscaping will be beautiful once bloomed
-they really need a property map. It's my super scattered, but it would be nice to have one.
-a weekly activity guide was provided, but most are paid.
-a beach bag would be nice. Maldives had one. Helps cause we bring a lot of stuff to pool.
-sad to see trash around the property while walking to pool. Beer bottle and cardboard boxes. Shame on people who couldn't find a trash.
-brought my beer that I got while in basseterre

This is just to let you know that the hotel have now amended this promotion. With the 4th night free promotion, they are now offering $300 per ROOM instead of the previous $300 per PERSON offer. Booking through Prive will continue to add daily breakfast for 2, extra $100 (per room) credit, upgrade and more. This is valid for stays before December 22nd 2018. Feel free to send me a PM if you have any questions.

Thanks for the update cityguy. What if you already booked before they changed the promo? Are they still going to honor it? Hope there won't be any issues...

You should be fine with an existing reservation!

Has anyone been able to confirm the Prive crap? I am calling it crap until I can see multiple real confirmed reports.

I am already working with $300 per person of credits on a $1460/4nt reservation. I absolutely do not believe in the idea of something for nothing, and am unsure of what providing my reservation #, full name, etc will do for me. It seems as easy as that, give a stranger that, and you can get $100 added (total of $700 in credits) for 2 people. But.........really?

I find this all hard to believe. I want to see some flyertalk reports of people blowing $700 at the resort (2 x 300 + 100 prive), and getting that last $100 comp'd.

Question. If you donít believe in something for nothing, why do you think you will get the $300 pp in credits? Letís start there and then work towards your actual question.

Well, certainly works like virtuoso, world elite hotels, amex FHR. I have used those and they were never crap.

You better believe it! I was there 2 weeks ago, 2 people, reservation made with a Prive authorized agent, complimentary (excellent) breakfast, $300+300+100 credit applied to F&B, which we entirely use. We tried the 3 restaurants, they are very good but expensive, so it was not too hard to get around $700. No problem at all to get the credits, actually they were reminded to us upon check-in. Service was better than expected by reading TripAdvisors reports, just the beach/ocean are so-so for a Caribbean Island, but we had a very pleasant stay

Stayed at PHSKB in early July, enjoyed the hell out of the Prive benefits. Was upgraded from Park King room to a Sea view suite. Received the additional $100 credits as promised. Free breakfast is a huge boon - the breakfast buffet has an amazingly wide variety of foods, and the selection fruits/pastries/juices change every day - the free breakfast also includes one a la carte item, which was excellent as well.
