Spacious condos located on Dawn Beach in St. Maarten

The Oyster Bay Beach Resort is a secluded tropical hideaway nestled on an eight-acre peninsula. Originally built as a private club on beautiful Dawn Beach and Oyster Pond, the recently renovated resort features Moorish arches and stone towers and Caribbean-style buildings. In addition to the beach, Oyster Bay features an infinity pool and whirlpool. Other amenities include two restaurants, a fitness center, a full activities program, and nightly entertainment.

Highlights
  • Location on Dawn Beach
  • Balconies with great views of St. Barts or the marina in Oyster Bay
  • Suites feature handy kitchenette
Rooms

Accommodations range from a standard room, with king-size bed, balcony, and small fridge, to a two-bedroom suite with king-size bed, pullout sofa bed, and fully equipped kitchen (big stove/oven, blender, microwave, fridge, cupboards, dishwasher). All rooms have balconies, in-room safe, hair dryer, iron/ironing board, air conditioner, coffee maker, free Internet access, oversized bathroom, and TV with satellite channels. Rollaway beds are available at a fee.

Features

Oyster Bay provides free snorkeling equipment, and the resort's Dawn Beach is one of the best spots on the island to snorkel within wading distance of the shore. The activities desk can also help guests book half- and full-day snorkeling trips to Anguilla or the uninhabited isle of Prickly Pear. Other available activities include the Rhino Ride, the Lord Sheffield Sunset Sail, horseback riding, and deep sea fishing.

 

More relaxing options include the pool and beach, both with lounge chairs for guests, and the whirlpool. Steps away from the rooms, Indulgence by the Sea is a full-service on-site spa that provides pampering treatments like the signature Citrus-C manicure and pedicure, Mango Papaya Salt Glow skin treatment, or a four-hour body renewal package. To complement the spa, Oyster Bay Beach Resort offers a fitness center with free weights and aerobic equipment including bicycles, treadmills, and elliptical machines.

 

The Infinity Restaurant serves breakfast, lunch, and dinner, with a menu that includes Italian specialties and seafood dishes like grilled mahi mahi or a shrimp and pineapple kebab. The restaurants and casino at the Westin St. Maarten Dawn Beach are also nearby.

Had a great time

Right on the beach. Great atmosphere at the restaurants. Beau Beau's beach bar was great. Something happening every night. Food at the Infinity Restaurant rivaled some of the higher priced French restaurants we visited.

WE LOVED IT ! AGAIN :-) SINCE 2001

I have stayed here before & dollar for dollar it's the best deal around...way way less expensive than the Westin next door , granted the Westin is brand new & very modern while Oyster is older (Share the same beach as the Westin too).. BUT..I didn't come here to stay in my room and there's nothing wrong with the rooms,we stayed in the rooms called RUN OF THE HOUSE , it's the original small hotel in the center of all the newer Oyster Bay units and the new Lighthouse complex ..we had a 2nd floor patio that overlooked the Infinity pool & Ocean , King size bed ,great AC ,& all new refrig , coffee maker , microwave , 37" flat screen Sony with 12 cable channels ... A great & friendly wait staff... recommend getting a rental car , the island roads are easy to navigate altho not in the greatest of shape on the Dutch side while the French side is very good...lot's to see & do on both sides of the island ...WEATHER ...Phenominal , 82 - 88 everyday .... we are returning to Oyster next year too .. [...] ..

great location

A very nice hotel for the price. The location was excellent. Far enough away from the busier, Americanized hotels. Great activities and a very friendly, helpful staff. Wonderful restaurants within walking distance just outside the complex gates.

If you like to get out of the complex, you need a car. Best to rent one right at the airport.

Our first time at st. martin

I definitely recommend this hotel especially for the price we got with the flight, hotel and car package.FYI if you do not get a car you will not see anything the island had to offer. To sum up the hotel. Pool...nice. Food...very good. Location...great. Staff and desk...great. Security...great. Beach...very nice but there are better on the island. Rooms...clean and adequate for the price. All in all...we really enjoyed this hotel. I hope this review was helpful.

Great Views in a Timeshare Setup

The hotel was a wonderful experience, although we found it to be very suited to the timeshare owners. If staying in the hotel rooms (of which there are only a few) the rooms are off of the main social area and are loud due to the activities outside and morning setup. Staff was very helpful and courteous, parking was easy, and location can't be beat for views and easy access to the French and Dutch sides of the island. Free snorkeling equipment, SCUBA demos, cushioned beach chairs, infinity pool and Beau Beau's beach bar with GREAT happy hour specials and bar staff make this a very fun and active place to stay.

Perfect place to relax

We came here to relax for our honeymoon, and loved it. The location was perfect for us--quiet, on a marina, accessible to Dawn Beach and the few restaurants nearby (including the ones at the Westin down the road). If you are looking to chill out at an awesome pool and the beach for several days, this is your place. The hotel is also a timeshare place so guests can participate in the many, many activities the resort offers---aqua aerobics, happy hours, etc. The staff was incredibly professional and mostly super friendly and helpful. We were really, really pleased and felt it was well worth the price. I would say the inside of our room was maybe more similar to a beach motel in the U.S., so not necessarily the most luxurious, but it was definitely clean and again the price just couldn't be beat.

Do Captain Alan's snorkeling tour! A half day boat trip around the northern part of the island for two snorkeling sites and a natural mud bath! $70 per person--includes drinks on the boat.
