          Individual guest reviews

          • Family with children
            6.6

            Good location, plenty of free parking, good-sized apartments, good selection of shops and restaurants nearby. Try Lee's Roadside Grill, and the Yacht Club, both just across the road from the hotel.

            Staff could be more attentive. We reported a problem (broken door) on arrival, and it still hadn't been fixed (or even looked at) a week later when we left. Faster and more widespread wifi would also help. It is only available in the lobby, and the signal is not great, particularly when there are 20+ people crowded in there trying to use it. High- pressure timeshare sales pitches from people who appear to be hotel staff was also an irritant.

          • Family with children
            10.0

            The rooms/ apartments are very spacious and come with a fully equipped kitchen and a small balcony. Staff was very friendly and helpful. Nice pool and beach. Great location in St.Maarten.

          • Older travelers
            7.4

            Very good location, good comfort,beach is excellent, suits are very nice equiped with all you need. Cleaning of the suit in our ten days stay was only once.I Can recomend as a good accomodation.

            Be carefull with your booking, taxes are not included in the rate, you will be surprices with 20% extra in your final charge by the hotel This is what I didnt like when I did my reservation trough Booked.net I was not informed about taxes and what ammount will be that.

          • Older travelers
            5.8

            Location at beach close to the airport, good access to restaurants around.

            Service, service and service. Front desk: slow, slobbish - we called in advance coming from a scuba boat to ask for an early check-in, were promised - arrived to hotel at 11am, got a room 15:45pm. Towel desk: like soviet-time unfriendlyness and rigitity about towel cards (which the front desk had missed to give us!). In no circumstances would recommed this hotel to American customers who are used to a high and friendly service-mindedness of hotel staff. I live in the US but am European and yet found this very poor.

          • Family with children
            10.0

            this is the best location in st maarten

            would have liked a small washer/dryer in unit

          • Older travelers
            8.8

            We were originally staying on Anguilla,but needed to ferry over a day early due to impending storm(Isaac). So this was an impromptu booking. We were pleasantly surprised by the size and quality of the room,for the price. The location was great in proximity to the airport. Overall it was a very good experience.

            It would have been terrific if the Resort provided shuttle service to the airport, instead of having the taxi drivers solicite fares in the lobby...

          • Older travelers
            7.8

            the bed and rooms were in excellent condition

            The check in time of 4 is far too late

          • Family with children
            7.8

            Very friendly staff , great job, great location , close by many resturants and shopping places, ideal for family. Will go back to hotel for future visit.

            There were some issue with bathroom and kitchen applience , our sofa bed was not working properly, but hotel staff was nice and helpfull to fix the isuee

          • Older travelers
            9.6

            Enjoyed other guest and access to all parts of island.

            Check in was tedious, and room was not available untill one hour after scheduled check in time.

          • Group of friends
            10.0

            The Location was great & the room was perfect with a great view. Would stay there again.

          • Couple
            7.4

            Great beach. Rooms couldn't be any closer to the beach. View from the rooms is fantastic.

            Too many children around. No dining option.

          • Group of friends
            3.2

            we had a great view of simpson bay and saw all the sailboats cross thru the bridge

            The people at the front desk were unfriendly, wasnt the cleanest place, pool is very very small and cold, the public wi fi is only available at the lobby and pool area and I was "sniffed" and all my accounting information at my business servers in the usa were compromised by someone there. They have double charged my credit card without any authorizations from me, not a happy camper...not sure I ever want to go back.

          • Group of friends
            5.4

            The location of the resort was ideal

            The bathrooms were filthy. There was still hair on the shower walls from the previous guests. Even worse than that, I had requested a late check out on 2.28.11 when I made the reservation. The resort tried to get us out of the room early and then did not allow us the requested late check out time.
