Great Place

Everything about the resort was great. From the room to the staff to the food to the activities to the pool - and of course the white sand and clear ocean!

Visit as many beaches as possible during your stay. You can rent a axe at the resort for $40-50 which is cheaper than taxi or bus.

Wonderful Experience!

The views from the hotel are amazing. Every staff member was so polite and accommodating! The food/restaurant options were a bit more limited and different from other resorts in the past but still nice.

Take the city bus instead of a taxi when traveling to other beaches/locations. The bus is $2 per person and not much different at all than a taxi.

Did what i needed it to do

Although i did not spend a lot of time at the resort, the time spent was enjoyable. Hotel is a little dated and the rooms were not anything special. Staff was friendly enough and was close to Cheris and the airport. Had a blast hanging on the fence behind all of the jets at Maho beach.good deal for an all inclusive.

In need of a makeover

The hotel is on need of obvious repair. There were many leaks during rainstorm. The pool looks great in PR photos, but no maintenance is being done. The waterfall is supposed to be aesthetically enhancing but the chipped paint, green stains just show lack of routine care. Staff is uninterested. Every meal requires your own hunt for silverware, cups, water glasses etc. Bartenders were alert and fun, wait staff was not. Food- Breakfast par for any hotel Lunch boring bland options. Although I did miss an outdoor barbecue that I heard was real nice. Dinner pretty good buffet choices in one location and very good formal offering. Good location to hopping bars and restaurants.

Rent a car from local cheap spots. Too expensive from Hertz or other big companies. Rent a jeep Come in handy if rain hits.

Great time, great location

Wife and i were very happy with the staff and food. Choices were very good and the buffets were all you could ask for. I happened to love the location with the airport being right there for us to see the planes landing and taking off. the village has plenty of other places to eat and amenities and the casino was great as well. if you want to get away for a day, a 63 dollar car rental in the lobby allows you to drive the whole island. great sights and you can even stop in for a meal at the other location at great bay since you can use that place all you want as well. Phillipsburg has great shopping. Great trip, would go back. Would just say the hotel could use some updating, asthetically, the wifi is not very good and i think they could use a hot tub, there is none, but other than that, it was a great experience.

Wonderful vacation

The staff is friendly and outgoing and cant do enough for you. Buffet food is average to good. Above average food served at the upscale restaurant "The Point". Wifi connections terrible Major negative - septic smell permeated the grounds from 3:00 pm everyday to morning.

Beautiful place - St Maarten a bucket list experience for us!

Getting an Acceptable room was a little tricky. Having said that, the room was clean, staff friendly, good food, loved the swim up bar- Cheryl the bartender very attentive and warm. Location perfect-lots to do. Being within walking distance of Sunset Grill was great-watched the jets take off & land is incredible. Probably could use a few more restaurants as an all inclusive but that's a little nit picky as we enjoyed our selections. Beware however-there is a mosquito virus spreading so do your research and take precautions.
