Perfectly adequate resort with an intimate and casual atmosphere which is a nice change from the mega resorts. We even met one of the owners during one evening's social gathering. The rooms were newly upgraded and very tastefully appointed, and kept very clean. Friendly staff. Has all the necessary amenities without the fancy extras. Has a cute little beach on... More

Oyster Pond is bit off the beaten path but it's quiet beauty and great amenities makes it a great place to have a meal or stay in a villa, hotel or time- share. We stayed at Oyster Bay beach Resort and had a grand time.

We had a short stay In Oyster Pond and moved to our time share in Simpson Bay. I loved the old look of an old Caribbean resort. You couldn't ask for a better view. A beautiful marina great people. I disliked the fact that I didn't book the up graded room.

Relaxed, calm athmosphere in the Oyster pond. Short trip for boats to the sea. Thew area around the Oyster Bay Resort seems new or renovated, especially the dock area.

Love St Maarten on the Dutch side especially. The water is so turquiose blue skies so sunny and bright and just a completely relaxed island to visit. The Dutch side offers any type of vacation you want, relaxing, casino's, shopping, fine dining all set in a friendly atmosphere. Never disappointed making a trip to St. Maarten!

Really enjoyed Mr. Busbys open air restaurant on the beach for a very good breakfast selection and value. There is a small beautiful marina small Dutch supermarket and several shops and restaurants. The access road to Oyster Pond is little bumpy and long. We stopped and took in the beautiful ocean nature reserve right outside of town. The beach was... More

If you're looking for a quieter vacation, this is the place to be. It is further from the hustle and bustle of other parts of the island like Simpson Bay and Phillipsburg where most of the activity, restaurants and shopping are. It is convenient to stay there and you can still drive to other places to visit.
