If you want to party like there is no tomorrow... go to the Dutch side lol... for everybody else... This boutique hotel is the front of a sailing marina filled with multi-million dollar multi hulls and is an older hotel, you can see that once this might have been a glorious place, but that said... the hotel is clean, rooms...

We were looking for a quick getaway from the bad weather up North and Captain Oliver’s was part of a Getaway air and hotel package on the Jet Blue site. I don’t think that we got a particularly good deal price-wise, but it was an easy way to make a last minute decision. Next time I would try to check... More

This is in a nice location. Restaurants & a couple of markets are nearby. Lovely views of the marina/mountains/Caribbean from room balconies. This was probably once a 5 star hotel. Still nice, though. There are restaurants on site, not my favorite on the island. For the BEST crepes on the island walk up the hill to BZH (closed on Sunday).... More

Supermarkets, coffee shops, restaurants either within the resort are in close to the hotel Room. ** (out of max five). Old fashioned large room with nice view to the marina.

Great, large rooms. Quick drive to Philipsburgh. Beautiful view of water and bay. No sandy beach but the pool isn't crowded and is away from the hotel rooms. Day trip to St. Barth's and sailboat chartering is at the dock area. Many convenient restaurants in area, especially the Dinghy Dock Bar.

Large and clean rooms, friendly and accommodating staff. The pool isn't big but it wasn't crowded when we were there. The only big drawback is a lack of sandy beach. You can jump off from the dock and swim in the bay which is nice and calm, but its not something that the little kids could enjoy.

I booked Captain Olivers for it's location recalling how bad the traffic can be from Simpson Bay into Phillipsburg and it worked out well. It is no more than 15 minutes drive from Oyster Pond into Phillipsburg where I had to be for a few days. The hotel is ok for the price, the rooms could benefit from a refit... More

Found the staff very accommodating and friendly. The rooms were surprisingly spacious. Clean and cool, a little dated, but comfortable. Thought it was a great location just over the French side. Couldn't ask for better! Will definitely visit again.....
