My husband and I checked into our room on a Sunday night. There was a problem with the toilet not flushing. After calling the front desk, someone arrived almost immediately to attempt to remedy the situation. The next day we still had problems, and a call to the front desk prompted them to find a new room for our stay.... More

Before coming to the Westin I was a bit hesitant due to a lot of the negative reviews. My bf and I just got back from a weeklong there and we had a wonderful time. The hotel is a little far from everything, and we got lost on the way there. Luckily, the concierge has very clear written directions to... More

I checked in on saturday around 6:30 p.m., and I am a starwood preferred member and I had requested in my reservation for an upgrade. The desk clerk very rudely told me that the hotel was sold out and no upgrades were available. I later found out this was not true, as I had brought my computer and went online... More

OVERALL: A really good hotel! NEGATIVES: 1. Yes, the lobby is relatively unattractive and a bit of an eyesore. Solution: Don’t hang out in the lobby! 2. Yes, the carpeting in the hallway has some stains. It is not terribly dirty and they do vacuum it frequently—probably some drunk college kids spilled beer one day. Solution: Get over it! The... More

My wife and I stayed here in July 2010 for our 10th anniversary (without the kids!), and had a great time. The room was nicely appointed and large, the pool and beach were great (although the water at the beach was a bit rough if you have small kids), and the hotel restaurants were fine (nothing stellar, but nothing to...

Just got around to writing this review on TripAdvisor, but sent immediate accolades directly to Westin the same week of our return to Toronto. We booked an oceanfront room and upon receiving a confirmation number, emailed the Westin Dawn Beach directly to request an oceanfront room on the top floor, closest to the beach. My request was responded to the... More

Our wedding band was robbed from the room. Our first room was in a quadrangle with no view or privacy.. No less than five different people entered our room every day for something; cofee, sheets, chocolates, like it was a free for all. We were approached every walk down the hotel lobby for a time share spiel, literaly,every day. The... More

We just returned from 9 days at the Westin and had a wonderful time. We received a complimentary upgrade to a full ocean view room which was a great surprise upon our arrival. The room was clean and in good condition and the maid staff ensured that it stayed that way thoughout our stay. The hallways leave a bit to... More

We spent most of the time at the hotel, mainly at the beach in the day and had lots of room service at night. We did rent a car and headed around the island stopping to check out different beaches along the way. Very beautiful sights and convenient to get around. Had a great meal at Big Fish close to...

My husband and I visited for the 5th time the beautiful island of St. Martin from Dec 30 to January 12, 2011. We stayed at the Westin - Dawn beach, as La Samanna was sold out. The Dawn Beach Resort is very remote; nothing around, so renting a car is a must. We rented a car right on the hotel... More
