... morning, etc. This is what we work out to at the gym I go to. I love dancing to this the way I love dancing to reggeton more than pop back home.
Calypso is also popular here, although it is not really good dance music. It is very political and the revolutionary/humanist/moralist/sociali st/anarchist in me thinks it's about the greatest thing since sliced bread.]

Saturday morning, while my dad slept in, my mom and I went to the Saturday market. I was able to show her a soursop, breadfruit, wax apples, cinnamon in the raw (full bark pieces, not like what you get in a little bottle in the states), dasheen (aka taro), carambola (aka star fruit, 5 finger), passionfruit, and a bunch of other exotic edibles that the various vendors were selling. ...
... t know if she was celebrating that she just got a promotion at work that day or if this is how she parties, but the beer kept coming. However, at no point in the night did she do anything that a stereotypical drunk US college girl would do. She never got to the point where she was stumbling, slurring, stripping, puking, or doing anything super-embarrassing.

I pleaded with the guy at the door to let me buy just that one thing. I'm pretty sure he only let me in because I knew what I wanted, it was at the front, and it was only one thing.
I'm also facing that with the book store. I went to a tiny ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Oualie Beach Resort Nevis
Oualie is the Bomb!
Staff was excellent and courteous. After the 3rd day the bartender knew our room and greeted us by name. The rooms spill right out onto the beach, so if you are into lounging on a calm beach with a beautiful view this is the place. The restaurant at the hotel was very good and well priced. Location of the resort allows easy access to the water activities, which are run from the nearby dock, as well as all of the other restaurants which are a short drive. Could not have been happier with the location and accomodations.
We just returned from the Oualie Beach Hotel in Nevis. We spent ten days and it was wonderful. We were looking for something quiet, relaxing with water nearby (within 50 feet of our cottage!) Our first three days we did not move from the hammock. The view from the hammock was the best in the world. You could watch the sunset, look over at St. Kitts watch sail boats, and enjoy the beautiful beach and water. Everyone went out of their way to make sure we enjoyed our stay. We found that most all of the citzens of Nevis went out of their way to make sure we enjoyed ourselves and felt welcomed and safe.
In August and September 2005 I stayed at the Oualie Beach hotel
Great place and beach
Okay rooms with the necessary amenities. A few ants but no major bugs. Beautiful ocean views and sunsets. Great characters at the bar in the evening that love to chat and tell great tales. Safe.
Jason the chef does a very good job and has a good meal rotation. Terrific buffet BBQ night on Tuesdays.
Check it out.
We stopped at Oualie Beach Resort for 2 nights in a bungalow on the Beach.
Relaxing Beachside Retreat
My Family and I spent 3 nights at this nice beachside resort.
Good- The beach is 30 steps from your cottage.
The resturant is very nice.
Hammocks are everywhere on the property.
VERY QUIET AND RELAXING.
Nice Snorkeling and water equipment.
Bad- Our room smelled, and had ants in it.
No pool, but with that beach not that big of a deal.
During your stay on Nevis, I highly recommend Sunshine's a great beachside bar. Take a walk on the Four Season's beach(beautiful at night). Overall, very nice.
If you want to get away to a beautiful Caribbean island for the sole purpose of truly relaxing, and not spending a fortune like you would at the Four Seasons (just a couple miles down the road or beach-front), Oualie Beach is the place for you. If you are looking for constant activity for you and the kids, look elsewhere. Oualie (pronounced "oo-a-lee"), has pretty, quaint, well-kept duplex and quad-plex (2 story) cottages that are simply but tastefully decorated. Most allow you to walk out literally "onto the beach" area. Other units are just a few more steps away. All units have air conditioning, cable TV and phones, as well as a screened in porches/verandas with lounge chairs for those non-beach days. The beach area has a large number of lounge/chaise type chairs with smattering of hammocks strung up between the palms/coconut trees. The real beach area itself is relatively small (about half the size of the property's water frontage), but adequate. Nevis Water Sports is on the property and offers mountain bikes, scuba and snorkeling equipment, kayaks, wind-sail, Sunfish/sail boats and small catamarans, in additoin to lessons for those sports. A small boat dock there has boats for the diving and boats for charter fishing tours.
I wouldn't give it a second chance
This place was a huge disappointment. Our room was dirty (it always had ants and at times smelled of sewerage). The staff was friendly in a calculated way and prone to laziness. The food was poor: The restaurant received rave reviews in much of the literature we read, but the entire week we were there dining was a below average experience (regardless of the request, all meals were prepared as well-done). On a positive note, it was very private and quiet - I slept well.
Looking forward to going back!
Nice, pretty well maintained, clean rooms with balconies all overlooking the ocean. Beautiful sunsets every night! Service in the restaurant was island speed (on the slow side) but everyone at the hotel was very nice and accomodating. The beach is small but there's a nice lawn with beach chairs just behind the beach. Felt very safe and enjoyed exploring the island. Bring Cutters or Off.
We spent our honeymoon (mid-May, 2000) at Oualie Beach and had a fantastic time. Room was pleasant- very clean and air conditioned with a smallish bathroom and TV, but staying at Oualie is really all about THE BEACH, which was very nice with a gorgeous view of St. Kitts....You literally step from your bungalow onto the sand. I spent 3-4 hours a day swimming and snorkeling in clear blue water, while my husband windsurfed (windsurfers available for rent at the end of the beach- we went off-season and my husband negotiated a weekly deal).
