Oh my... this place has gone so far downhill - we are not sure we are going to ever stay here again. We are timeshare owners since 1992 (basically bought when it was in construction phase). It was the most gorgeous place. Our expectations have been lowered considerably over the past 5-6 years, but this year I think was the... More

This review is for the casino only (although I reviewed one of their restaurants separately). I suppose you could walk to this casino from Simpson Bay if you really wanted to, but it would really be a hike. But if you take the new bridge, it's only a five-minute drive from Simpson Bay. They have a really good 1-2 no-limit... More

We stayed here for a while during our time in St Maarten. We are not timeshare owners but I know the management and so got a really great rate, so can't complain about the value. A great room, 1 bed apartment with 2 bathrooms and a full kitchen. The only problem with this hotel is there is no internet in... More

The craps table is not open, they said they need 3 people to open the table and the bartender said he hadn't seen it open in months. (My thoughts are nobody is going to attempt to play if there's nobody manning the table.) Free drinks if you're playing slots/tables.

We went to this resort twice during our stay in Simpson Bay. We were taken by complimentary shuttle to the resort from the Royal Palm Beach Club. We ate at Esco Pizzeria 2 nights in a row, & the food is excellent & reasonably priced for this expensive island. We had pizza (real wood burning oven), pasta & salad. The... More

Wife and I stayed in one of the suites facing Simpson Bay. The view was spectacular and interesting during breakfast (with our croissants from the front desk - WONDERFUL) and Cafe Britt coffee (from the grocery next door). Sunsets were AWESOME and equally as enjoyable with martini's and snacks. Much of the section we were in was under renovation as... More

The hospitality is the 'selling' point for this hotel / resort. From the driver at the airport to the front desk staff to the housekeeping staff.... they all went out of their way to give a warm welcome. The hotel property is a little dated and is in need of a makeover, but having said that, it is clean, comfortable... More

I very recently (March 2012) stayed at the Princess Port de Plaissance in St. Maarten, N.A. and was taken ill which had nothing to do with their resort. The staff, after normal operating hours, were able to contact a Doctor on my behalf and, locate a pharmacist who agreed to open the pharmacy after 9pm at night. The security and... More

If the casino will find you enjoyable, the rest is awfull... The hotel hasn't been renovated for many years and you'll notice it... We have been in a suite with two bedrooms, the equipment was broken, dirty and unmaintained. You think being in 80's hotel. Only the casino and the outside building at the entrance are suitable.

We were just put up there last night by Air Canada -as the airport ran out of gas for our plane. Crazy, eh? We personally called 8 hotels we know on our mobile and everyhting was sold out. Obviously if Cote had rooms for so many of us, you knew it was going to be bad. As an omen of... More
