After numerous stays on the French side of the island, we decided to stay on the Dutch side at the Westin Dawn Beach. We're very glad we did because the stay was fabulous. The service could not have been better, the rooms are large and comfortable, and the food is outstanding. With the beach, pool, spa and casino, you could... More

The Westin Dawn Beach is a large resort type hotel with great amenities but overpriced. Arrival at the hotel is very uninspiring; just a large portico and high walls; architecturally challenged. Rooms were nice but as you can see by the photo a resort view room is not much of a view unless you speaking of the neighboring resort. The... More

Staff VERY friendly, food very good. Layout is fairly bad, very bad if you have young kids or are old; food, beach and pool are quite a long walk from rooms. Rooms are spacious and housekeeping is good. There is NO shade at pool or beach except for a ridiculous fee; you're already being charged $20 per day resort fee.... More

What positive things can I say about this Westin? Well, the rooms are spacious, the internet works and the view of St Barts is spectacular. Err, that’s it. The Westin is an architectural disaster - as you arrive you are greeted by a sea of concrete, a multi-storey car park and noise. You enter the lobby and you only see... More

After reading some of the negative reviews on this hotel, we drove to it in St. Maarten with great trepidation. Following the direction of the GPS along the way as others have noted I began to fear it as the road out of town was filled with potholes and neighborhoods not typical US Suburban. When we arrived at the hotel... More

No shade at pool, food mediocre at best and staff could have been much more friendly. Service at the hotel was poor, but generally the property is well maintained. Beach area is small and the fact that it is located on the Atlantic side of the island there are no water sports.

Had a great experience from start to to finish. Aside from a good size and clean room, the staff was phenominal.. James at the front desk was helpful inside and outside of the resort. With a great knowledge of the entire island, any place we were recommended to try by him was perfect and exactly what we were looking for..... More

Perfect vac even with my husband being sick on the last two days. The Director of rooms provided service beyond my expectations; as soon he found out that my husband was ill, arranged room service ( good chicken meal ) and other accommodations. Great service Rahul Abhyankar.

First, the review titled "HORRIBLE" below couldn't be further from our experience. So don't let that persuade you to avoid this property - I can be a hotel snob too, and I just don't agree at all with the comments from that review. Our experience start to finish was an absolute blast. Sandy greeted us upon our arrival and made... More

If you are expecting your typical Westin, this is not it. On the other hand, where this hotel lacks in room, lobby and f&b accommodations, this hotel has a spectacular beach and pool! That being said, if you are looking for the action of the Dutch side, this hotel is about $30 cab ride. You are closer to the French... More
