It's not uncommon to find a mixture of tripadvisor reviews for a given venue because tastes and expectations vary but there are some clear themes here that continued on this visit. First of all, as stated by others, this is a 3 star property. There were no problems with the room which was clean and had a decent view of... More

Westin Dawn Beach Resort and Spa was terrible on many, many levels. 1. Service was terrible. The employees act like you, PAYING GUESTS are a nuisance to them. They are lazy, rude and seem generally not happy at all. The wait staff is so slow I finally just took to getting silverware, napkins, glasses myself. Also never a nice thought:... More

We booked a room for several nights using my dad's starwood points, had it not been free (minus of course the sneaky "resort fees") I would have stayed elsewhere. Granted, the pool, the hot tub, the views, and the beach are really beautiful. But the service, the lack of internet (several days it was down, our room had ants, the... More

I just returned from a weekend trip to the Westin Dawn Beach. As most of the previous reviewers stated, this is not up to Westin Standards. I used my Starwood points for 3 nights at the resort. At check-in I was told I was being upgraded to an Ocean view room. By Ocean view, they meant if I stand on... More

Parts of the hotel were very dirty. The carpet in our room was heavily stained. Service was very slow and not friendly most of the time. Out of the way location made taxies very expensive. Constantly harrassed by sales people trying to sell timeshares every time we walked through the lobby. Many other better hotel choices on the island....particularly for... More

The top 10 reasons you should NOT stay here (unless you want to spend a lot of money and receive mediocre service): This hotel requires a taxi if you go anywhere and it will cost you $30-$35 each trip. The hotel expereince was bad and I'm a Starwood member: 1. "Partial Ocean View" is viewing a parking lot. Don't fall... More

This was my first time traveling to St. Maarten and it was the first experience I have had in the Caribbean where more than half of the staff members were just plain rude and were not helpful at all. My boyfriend and I arrived at Westin Dawn Beach the day after Christmas to enjoy an 8 day vacation. Once we... More
