The good: Big, clean room. The A/C worked fine. The staff is very nice and helpful. Within walking distance from bars and restaurants. The marina is beautiful. The not so good: There wasn't wi-fi in my room. Only in the lobby. The T.V. reception was very poor. Only a few channels were watchable. It's a nice place to stay if... More

2 days stay with the king bed room, pretty big room and good view for the sea. Clean room, wifi works most of the time. Some cats around the hotel, a little bit noisy in the morning as cats start to wake up..

Captain Oliver’s is a magnificent change from either the big, impersonal resorts in St Martin or the funky local establishments. For a return trip to St. Martin, we went way out of our way to enjoy this hotel. The rooms are elegant with spectacular views. We especially appreciated Trifon's (the manager) desire to make sure everything was perfect for us—which... More

Staff was amazing. Grounds were beautiful. View was spectacular. Captain Olivers was a larger facility that I originally expected. They really made for a perfect trip. If you actually want to get a feel for being on an island in the Caribbean I think this is a great way to go. The prices were great too but I dont feel... More

The property is amazing and the staff was better. We had a great time at Captain Oliver's. This stay came at the end of our island hopping honeymoon to five islands. We had a day and a half here and it was great. Thanks.

July 31, 2014 This was the third time we have stayed at Captain Oliver's Resort Hotel. Our first visit was in 2002; second visit was in 2012. Trifon, the hotel manager, met us at the desk when we checked in. We were able to get our favorite room with an outstanding ocean view. Our room was very spacious and the... More

Rooms are poor especially bathrooms, shower door are dangerous and may fall off tracks n hurt someone. They would not even fix it and it's July slow... More

Dear Guest, Despite the fact that your opinion sounds somewhat extreme, we are sorry your stay with us did not meet your expectations. Because of the low season we needed to make breakfast arrangements with one of our partner restaurants and we apologize for any inconvenience caused by this arrangement. Please note the bars on the marina do not belong... More

We had a wonderful week in the hotel. The staff is extremely kind and helpulf and the location and views from the room are incredible. The hotel is comfortable, quiet, basic but needs a quick refurbishment and investment as time passed by and competitors are many. There are two bars and a restaurant in the marina close to the hotel... More

Captain Oliver's could stand a lick of paint, but we spent four incredibly happy days there thanks to the location, the view, the surroundings, the staff, the comfort of the rooms (beautiful marshmallow duvets on the beds!) Would love to go back this very minute.
