We have visited the island twice before in late July and loved the small crowds and easy island lifestyle. It was different in December. First, we noticed more cruise ships and crowds at the popular places near the South end of the island. And we were told this was not even peak season! Next, we found the beaches on the... More

My husband and I stayed here as a time-share trade. We were initially impressed with the resort, but were disappointed that the room was dirty and the air conditioner leaked onto the dresser and ruined out paperwork. When we called about the air conditioner, they sent a man to our room to look at it. He came, wiped up the... More

Easy access to French Beaches and Dutch Nightlife. I must admit, I am a beach snob and I stay on the french side when sunbathing and dinning for the most part, but when it comes to gas, money and food shopping, the dutch side is where to go. Oyster Pond is simply the best of both worlds.

Second trip here in two years. Great staff, nice place, beautiful views and great restaurants and beaches nearby. My friend has a time share here and we upgraded to the penthouse which was awesome. Can't wait to go again in the future.

Beautiful ocean and bay views of the marina, but more seaweed than I had ever seen before in my life. They had a "bobcat-like" operation going on where they were shoveling the seaweed and burying it in areas where it was in turn covered with sand. Being Floridians, we didn't even bother to try to use the beach.

Really enjoyed Oyster Pond and its aquamarine waters....A marina with ferry to St Bart's, or rent a catamaran! Wonderful restaurants with a French side...highly recommend L'Oasis! Grocery stores good for a quick grab.....beautiful view of ocean from Mr Busby' s Cannot forget the Westin travelling the not so good road we saw monkeys, and near Westin gate, lots of Iguanas.

This area has a grocery store, several hotels, a ferry to St. Barts and lots of slips. It is a good cab ride away from the airport and cruise ship docks. There are restaurants and bars, but it is not as lively as closer in, which might be a good thing for some.

A great place to spend the day at the beach with nice restaurants nearby. Like most beaches you'll have to pay for beach chairs, but the view is worth it.
