For us, half the trip is the adventure. The Westin was very nice, has a beautiful pool area, beach faces the east and yes there is a very manageable water current. The water was frequented by snorkelers who ventured out quite a distance. Loved the ocean front room and the view of the beach/water/pool. The Mrs. enjoyed all the heavenly... More

We were there for our 25th anniversary and paid for an Ocean view room thru Expedia...we were given a room across from the restaurant--potential big time bummer as the hotel was fully sold out. An angel named Camille Asby-Solomon, the front desk manager, made our entire stay a memorable experience by switching us after one night to a great-great room... More

The Westin St Maarten is a beautiful hotel on a beautiful beach. However, the rudeness of the staff and the inconvienient location take away from your vacation experience. This hotel offers NO and I repeat NO hotel shuttles and during a 7 day stay my fiancee and I spent $400 in taxi fares. The hotel is a $30 cab ride... More

It's more like 35 minutes from the airport, as opposed to the website boasting just minutes. Our taxi was $25 USD for two people. The upside to the long drive across the island is getting to see Philipsburg and the other resorts along the way. We had great service from every staff member we met, the food was better than...

My wife and I stayed at the Westin Dawn Beach in mid-October. Our travel agent arranged for an oceanfront room and free breakfast, perhaps not hard during the offseason. The room, beach, pool and view were spectacular. The air conditioning was a little weak, but the temperature was bearable. The hotel restaurant and in-room dining were fine, and contrary to... More

We stayed for one night only because our Condo goes from Friday to Friday and Delta only flies on Saturday. Thought I would give this a try- fair rates off season and a good experience several times at a Westin in San Francisco.] Let me start with the good. The pool area is lovely. Really Lovely. The beach is nice-... More

Let me state at the outset that I am a Starwood guy (Gold Preferred and very loyal) and a Westin guy. I generally like the value/benefit ratio that Westins offer and have stayed at them and other Starwood properties around the world. I am NOT a fussy traveler. Clean sheets, hot water, quiet room: That’s mostly what I ask for.... More

This hotel was located in an area which required you to get a taxi to go to outside activities. The staff was not very reactive to want to help you.

The Westin Hotel at St. Maarten is very fary away from shopping in Phillipsburg. There is no "shuttle" service. The only way one can get around the island is by using the very expensive taxi or by renting a car. The other thing that was very upsetting is that there are mosquitos everywhere. I asked the taxi driver why were... More
