I'm trying to figure out how to start this review. I've reviewed quite a few places but not one where I was kept up until 4:00 AM by the noise from the neighboring nightclub. We arrived on a Friday afternoon, unpacked and went to the pool area to relax. That night we had a nice dinner at Thai Smile which... More

We are already missing the wonderful island of Sint Maarten. We just returned home from a great week at the Caravanserai. While there are obvious challenges with the pending auction, what we saw reaffirmed our decision to keep coming back. The one thing year after year that we have avoided is the "dream bar" that so many on here seem... More

We had not been back for two years as we were somewhat disappointed with the resort last time. It actually has improved. We had power and hot water every day without interruption. It was clean and well kept and there have been some improvements to the property. Still needs some TLC but we were pleasantly surprised. We are going back... More

We just returned from 10 days in St Martin and had one of our best trips ever. The trip wa sgreat because of the dream bar not he Caravanseria itself. A big part of the trip was the fun and people we met at the Dream Bar. I can say that Marty is one of the best owners of a... More

I still love to stay here. I have a unit on the third floor and not having an elevator was never a problem!!! Marty & Lori at The Dream pool bar are simply wonderful! Hope everything is the same when I return next year. It was great to see some of same staff working the desk, housekeeping and reservation area.... More

We have been timeshare owners at Caravanserai for 12 years and have never traded through RCI. It is a wonderful site and convenient. However, it desperately needs new management. Although we were booked into our home units we had to move twice because of booking problems. The single elevator does not work and it did not last year. It is... More

Spent a week here last year and loved it, so returned for two weeks this year. Of note, the elevator didn't work last year, didn't work this year, and it wouldn't surprise us if it wasn't working if we returned again next year. Until the resort is sold and/or under new management, problems will exist, but don't let this ruin... More

We were skeptical by all the bad reviews, however it is what you make of it and that is what my husband and I did, kept an open mind and really enjoyed ourselves. The hotel staff were very friendly and accommodating. We exchanged with RCI and we were placed in a studio on the 2nd floor overlooking the pool in... More

Ocean front, 1 bedroom, large closet, double sink vanity and large shower, bathroom has a washer and dryer. Very large eating area with full kitchen. Market around the corner to get some much needed essentials, coffee, wine, beer etc. The owner... More

I booked a week at this resort through RCI, and later learned of their financial problems which in turn was causing maintenance problems, etc. Just prior to going, I learned that it was to be auctioned the week before our visit, and the reviews were not favorable at that time, e.g. no working elevator, little or no maintenance, unfriendly staff,...
