The Summit is beautiful! It reminds me of how a Sint Maarten resort should be like. Very peaceful and a beautiful place to relax. It is very close to airport, gambling , beautiful beaches and town. We can't wait to return!

Dear j0ycemikeb, Wow, thank you so much for submitting such a great review of the Summit on TripAdvisor. Having opened in 1973, and welcoming guests for 43 years now, we do indeed represent Sint Maarten the way it used to be. Our colorful buildings, relaxed atmosphere and warm, friendly staff offer what we like to call "Old World Caribbean Charm"...

Awesome management and friendly staff, I would recommend it to anybody who's looking for a laid-back trip, to Saint Martin, without all the stuffiness of the big tower hotels on either the Dutch or French side. Reviews are incredible, and the restaurant run by Rick from fat Tony's is exceptional. Great Asian fusion food and sushi, at great prices.

The Summit is a gorgeous, peaceful resort perched over the Simpson Bay Lagoon. With a number of quaint villas along tree-lined paths, all of which have terraces, it is very peaceful and private. All of the villas are quite close to the beautiful pool, (delicious) restaurant, and bar. All of the staff members are extremely friendly, personable, and helpful. I...

We're a family of four, so when I read about their two bedroom villa, I snatched the opportunity. The hotel is very well located in a very quiet part of St. Martin. Even though there was a lot of construction around the area, we really heard nothing; and you can't even hear the other guests. The place is absolutely peaceful,...

My friends and I spent 4 nights at The Summit and really enjoyed our stay. From the office staff to the bar staff, everyone was incredibly friendly and helpful. The pool had a great bar and restaurant - not to mention a phenomenal view. Would definitely recommend the Summit Resort to anyone looking to vacation in the area!
