We recently stayed on the property in the 3 bedroom condos back in August. The beach and pool area are really beautiful. The restaurant on property was really good and swim up bar was nice. It pretty much had everything you could want for a relaxing Caribbean vacation. There was restaurants close by and a nice grocery store within 15... More

We have stayed at this hotel 2 times now and absolutely love it! Starting each day with the sunrise and views of St Bart's made everyday even more special on this interesting island. The staff go above & beyond, the food was always delicious and the service at the pool kept us from wanting anything.

For my wife's birthday we found a Westin (we are Starwoods lovers) in St. Maarten. It is located about 15 minutes from Philipsburg on the east side of the island on Dawn Beach. Although September is the low month in the islands, we found a paradise of all our own, and plenty to keep us busy. The staff at the... More

The hotel was beautiful. The pool area was wonderful. The ocean is rough, scared this Jersey girl! The annoying time share tours make this a 4 not a 5! The casino was small and there was nothing in walking distance to the hotel.

We have just returned from a stay at Westin, SXM.

The hotel is clean, and quiet. Pool and hot tub were both very... More

We liked the Sunday Brunch about $50 a person . The seafood and other offering made this a great choice . Other times we ate nearby at mire casual places on the beach . Rooms in timeshare area are 3 bedroom suites 1800 square feet . We visit during Regatta week for the sailboat races.

I visited the Westin Dawn Beach several years ago for a girls weekend getaway and had fond memories, but what mostly stood out in my mind was the incredible uncrowded beach and pool! This year I returned with my newlywed husband for our honeymoon and spent 7 nights there in an ocean front room on the 3rd floor. Wow! The... More

I like Westin's but this one is a little atypical from the ones in the United States. Having a casino as one of the focal points of the resort to me does not square with what "Westin" as a brand is supposed to be all about. Areas for improvement: This resort could use a bit of a renovation with wear... More

This place is pretty good, an oasis in a very impoverished island. Driving around anywhere other than Philipsburg makes you think you're in a 3rd world country. The pool and beach area are VERY nice. I just found the whole place a little odd, though. First, the music: house music pumps loudly at the pool area, one day starting at... More

I really wanted to like this Westin. Reviews suggested it was one of the nicer properties on the island, and it had direct beach access, which was a huge plus. But I was hugely disappointed by my two-night stay at the property. It was cloudy on the day I arrived. The checkin was quick, and while my room wasn't ready... More
