Overview

Guests can enjoy both the Dutch and French sides of St. Martin at Captain Oliver's Resort. The hotel is on the French side, while the restaurants and marina are on the Dutch side, symbolizing the island's unity. Dawn Beach is located just across the bay, only a two-minute trip via the free water taxi. Orient Beach is a 12-minute drive away.

Rooms

The 50 rooms and suites are perched on the hillsides, hidden among tropical plants, natural rock outcroppings, and winding paths. The junior suites have private terraces or balconies offering spectacular views. Guest rooms have high-beamed ceilings and tile floors and are decorated with white rattan and local art. All rooms have air conditioning, satellite TV, in-room safe, mini-bar, coffee and tea maker, ceiling fan, direct-dial telephone, and free Wi-Fi.

Property features

It only takes a couple of minutes to get to Dawn Beach via the free taxi. On calm days, the beach is great for snorkeling, and on windy days there's nice wave action, good for body surfing. A freshwater pool is also on site. A sandy area in front of the hotel with tikis and hammocks is available for hotel guests.


Captain Oliver's is also home to exotic birds, sharks, turtles, and other creatures. The birds often greet guests crossing the International Bridge entrance to Captain Oliver's restaurant, which serves fresh seafood and French and Creole cuisine. The sharks, turtles, tarpon, and other native marine species live in a natural aquarium under the restaurant's glass floor. The Quai Ouest Restaurant and Bar, on the hillside overlooking the marina, is family operated and features authentic Italian cuisine. The Dinghy Dock Bar and Restaurant on the marina is famous for its happy hour from 5 pm to 7 pm where guests get to mix their own drinks for just $2. The hotel also offers sailing charters to nearby uninhabited islands, and the ferry to St. Barths departs directly from Captain Oliver's Marina.

Overnight layover

Would not recommend Sun, Oct 4, 2015
I only booked this hotel because it said it had a hotel shuttle. I was traveling alone as a single female and I was arriving late at night. I ended up getting a taxi for $80 to the hotel RT. It was neat. the view on the balcony was awesome. I could feel the Ocean mist from my room. ~30 mins from the airport. For the $, I could avve stayed closer to the airport for about the same price when you factor in the taxi. I was starving when I arrived at the hotel and every where was dark. Was to scared to walk outside alone to find food.

Key Lesson: You get what you pay for!

Would not recommend Wed, Aug 5, 2015
After reading reviews and newspaper reports of estate law suits... we did not have any great expectations... and we were not disappointed. The whole complex has been let go, I guess no one wants to put the investment into it. That being said the location is wonderful. The kitchen was old and fridge had an old rusted paddlelock that scraped along the tile floor. Only water to come out of shower was on held held and trickled out. Needed extreme strength to open the slider door to deck... but once out there it was like a quiet piece of heaven. Would love to return but will never do so until the lawsuits are settled and someone decides to care about the property!!

Captain Oliver's was Not the Place for Us

Would not recommend Mon, Jul 13, 2015
I don't like to leave Negative, I usually just don't say anything But you asked. The room was supposed to have Direct calling - actually there was NO phone at all. My room was also supposed to have SATELLITE TV - it had only regular TV, not even cable and it was disabled from 2a-6a both nights that we stay. The Free WELCOME DRINKS that were advertised were billed to my credit card. So No it was not a Happy experience.

great location great price

Would recommend Wed, Jan 21, 2015
This hotel is located right off the docks. The ambiance was very nice. Parking was very difficult especially when the water taxi is departing that morning. I guess that's to be expected on such a tiny island. The location is just next to the dutch/french border. Its on the eastern side of the island away from the airport and most of the tourists.

Would recommend Tue, Mar 4, 2014
The staff was friendly. The accomodations were basic but clean. Nice ocean view from the pool, but no beach. It is in a neighborhood area so you can walk around without a lot of traffic. You can also walk around the marina. Several bar and restaurants located close by.

Beautiful, strange little place

Would recommend Sat, Jan 11, 2014
I loved my room. It was very pleasing. The bars and restaurants are in a different country so they can't do room charges. Yet they don't even take credit cards. I've always said that a nice thing about a resort is that you can go to the pool or beach and not have to carry money. Well, forget that here. Cash is king. And there is no ATM on site. The happy hour at the Iguana Bar is a very good deal. The nearby restaurant is pricey, consistent with prices in the area. But there are other restaurants and bars on the property that rent the space and are independently owned, so they can have their own pricing and specials. It pays to check out all the options. I enjoyed the novelty of the "pour your own" happy hour at the Dinghy Bar. Wi-fi was non-existent outside the lobby for the first three days and the staff said that there was nothing they could do. Then, on day four, it was working fine in my room. Someone fixed something, in spite of the denials by the staff. When I went for breakfast the first morning, one employee said that the bread and coffee was free for guests at the hotel. Then, after the fact, a different one charged me for this and it doubled the cost of the omelet that I ordered. I didn't go back. The shampoo in my room made my hair feel like straw. The "beach" was a dock where you could jump into deep water. All in all, this place would have been a fair deal at 80% of what I paid.

Have breakfast at the Oasis.

Sailing with Moorings St Martin

Would recommend Thu, Feb 9, 2012
The hotel is very convenient to Moorings base. The bed was exceptionally comfortable. The room was spacious. Bathroom was clean...the facilities could use some updating, but nothing was bad. The restaurant was not as good as the little bar down the pier...not clear what they aim for with it.
