We come to Princess Port de Plaisance Resort every year. Weren't able to go to St Maarten in 2009, but will return in 2010. We love Port de Plaisance. It is tranquil and peaceful. It does need a little sprucing up, The staff are friendly and helpful. The restaurants are very good. We can't wait to get there again in...

I just returned home from a stay at Port de Plaisance...like another traveler, my home resort wasn't finished with building yet. I was with my sister and a friend, and we typically just need a space to nap, shower, and change clothes, so it was perfect for that. The 1-bedroom condo was clean, and spacious enough for us all to...

My wife and I stayed here in Feb. 2009. we were both pleased and dissapointed with the condition of the resort. There were three restaurants associated with the main resort,including The Peg Leg Pub"the best steaks on the island". There were three restaurants in the Casino, and a buffet. The casino is definitely the cleanest and best run on the...

This hotel was a nightmare from the start. We arrived at the hotel and was greeted by numerous cats lurking in and around the front lobby. When we finally got our room (rather quickly) we were escorted to the very back of the property. It seemed deserted. We passed the pool, there were no chairs out, no pool attendants and...

This resort is a disgrace. It is in need of complete renovation. The Spa manager tried to scam us stating that the brochure she handed to us had incorrect price (Even though the brochure was on the countertops of the spa). The sink faucets leaked. The room needs painting. Walls chipped and stained everywhere. The tub was clogged. After 4...

We stayed there for 5 nights as guests of friends who booked a 2BR, 2 BA suite. The location was good, but to go anyplace on SM, it is a long drive, especialy in the busy times. The roads are awful, mostly potholes and speed bumps. The hotel itself looked good on the outside, with a guard at the bridge...
