Definitely the best place to stay in st.marten on the dutch side of the island. Had great views, good service, great food, wonderful beach and many activities. It is in a great location to be able to walk to some of the best places to eat.

This is our second time staying here and this place has really grown on me. Last time was four years ago. This time was with my wife and three kids, ages 10, 8, and 3. They did a great job with the addition of the Mexican restaurant and outdoor area surrounding it which I guess was done last year sometime....

The hotel was good. Centerally located - 15 min drive to Marigold, Phillisburg. 5 min drive to Maho beach, airport. Walking distance to different restaurants, bake shop. The only one negative thing about this hotel was the room. It smells (A/C wasn't working properly

Booked a studio with a king size bed and full kitchen. When we checked in, they put us in the worst possible building and unit on the resort. The unit was dark and cave like. The balcony faced the busy road and the back of the Villa Building with no view of the water at all or as shown in...

Great location and amenities. Some areas show signs of aging . Meet up with some of the regulars at the poolside bar and get all the info you need as to where to go to eat, shop or just tour. Make sure you get up to Grand Case for some of the best French Cuisine plus gorgeous views

Best time! We have gone the same time for the past 2 years. We are going this year for the third time. We are all looking forward to this trip. I recommend the catamaran trip to prickly pear and also the day trip around the island by boat. Both excursions were one of Our favorite things to do!!

Our first impression of this place could be summed up in one word, chaos. We arrived on a Saturday, which I guess is their most busy day. After finally getting to the reception desk, we were told our 2nd floor room was not ready yet. We asked if there was anything available on a higher floor and were told we...

Very nice location and accommodations; once you're there you quickly learn that it's a time share location. Rooms are large, comfortable, clean, nicely appointed and overlook the water.
