Amazing experience! Will be going back there!! Beautiful view of the waterfront. Friendly staff. Pool is very relaxing room was clean. Only thing is I wished they had a restaurant on the property that would be convenient for a quick meal

The Summit Hotel is in an elevated location looking over the lagoon with a wonderful view all day long. The grounds were kept immaculate and were colorful and lush. Staff was friendly and helpful. A must stay in St. Maarten.

Having never been to St. Maarten before we were just lucky to choose The Summit in Cupecoy as our hotel. It was everything we hoped it would be and, in fact, much more. The view of the lagoon from our porch, where we enjoyed our breakfast and evening cocktails, was stunning. The room was bright and modern with a super...

Dear SuzanMR, Thank you very much for posting such a wonderful review of the Summit on TripAdvisor. Thanks for the 5 star rating too! I agree that sitting on your balcony overlooking the lagoon while enjoying coffee in the morning, or a drink in the afternoon, is one of life's simple pleasures. That view really is amazing.

Quiet and private place to stay. Great view of the lagoon. Great restaurants nearby. Mullet beach within walking distance. Having a kitchenette in the room was good for making breakfast. Cleaning staff friendly and efficient as are all the other staff. Recommended.

The property offers a wonderful step back in time to the island of decades ago. The individual buildings are nicely laid out with gorgeous landscaping. The room design is well thought out and nicely updated. From our porch we had a great view of the bay. All the staff provided the warmth and friendliness that you would want from St....

We just left the Summit after a four night stay and it was WONDERFUL! The staff was so welcoming and willing to do anything. It felt like going home to mom. In fact, the owner is very often seen and accessible. The hotel was a great value. The rooms were spacious, clean, and just renovated. The shower had great pressure....

The staff was extremely helpful answering all my questions. The room was spacious & clean. The bed was very comfortable (previous reviews had complained about the beds). Gave sleep quality 4 stars due to lack of a noise ordinance on the island. Overall a very good value.

The setting was beautiful and easy to access. Please do not be tricked into thinking your children could use the pull out couch as a bedding option. It is awful (we put the old, not-very-clean mattress on the floor and it was still very uncomfortable for the children). The pool area is so pretty, eating at Fat Tony's for dinner...

First upon check in the room had this odor kind of smelled like cat urine. The shower floor still had hair and debris from a previous stay. Mattress wasn't of good quality. Access panel in ceiling above shower fell in. However the employees were friendly and tried to help. Will not recommend staying here until the update resort
