The room was perfect for 3 girls traveling together. Murphy beds were fun. Room was clean and perfect for making drinks and light meals. Great view from the balcony. The pizza place above piano bar is really yummy. Check-in desk staff could get it together a little bit, but island time...what can you do?

This will be our third year in a row staying in St Maarten.We arrive on January 28th. We absolutely love it. We stay at Simpson Bay Resort because it is close to everything. We do rent a little car to get around the island. The resort is a little hilly but a little walking is good for you. Or drive...

I booked the "junior suite plus" for my family of four over Christmas break and really enjoyed my stay. The views were excellent, and I loved the layout of the suite, which was really a one-bedroom apartment with a full kitchen. The living room had two murphy beds which were normal-sized twin beds where my kids slept. The bedroom was...

A large resort/timeshare. This property has had an ownership changes, and has since undergone extensive and ongoing renovations. A far better resort that its previous iteration as The Pelican. Multiple pools and a fair beach, which is to be enlarged and improved. Three or four restaurants, a piano bar, and a small super market,(the Peli Deli). Friendly staff.

We traded our 5 star 2 bdrm. 2bath for a 1 bedroom. We didn't know what to expect. This was a Mom/daughter trip. We rented a car at the airport. Upon check in I was told that they did not take American Express. No where was this mentioned beforehand. I did not have any other credit card. Only my debit...

My group of 4 friends and I planned and fully paid for a trip on December 27 for one week. The day before the trip, one of the friends did not receive their renewed passport, so we had to switch the trip to the US Virgin Islands. The contract with the Simpson Bay Resort and Marina clearly stated no refund...

The hotel is more like a timeshare. The room is big and if you like to have a kitchen etc it is fine What is frustrating is that this place has a sales team that acts like your concierge but actually is trying to sell you a timeshare. The room was clean but very dated and noisy at night. A...

Arrived at the resort at 2 pm and the receptionist explained the $50 timeshare tax - and handed us the room keys to our one-bedroom suite - which was clean and ready to occupy! We spent 10 minutes with the concierge to get the lay of the land and discuss the activities for the week; she also provided us with...

Loved this place. Lots of pools, beach was OK compact but good. Very friendly staff, a bit hilly terrain to get around by foot but after a few day it got easier. The room was excellent supposed to get a studio but got a 1 bedroom 😁😁. Would definitely go back to this great resort. Has a great grocery store...
