Our family of 4 stayed in a one bedroom (Geo Holiday / Sapphire resorts) Gunana Bay Beach Villa from 06/07/15 -06/13/15. The villas are located in a wonderful residental neighborhood about a 10 minute drive from Phillipsburg or about a 25 minute drive from the airport. There is no taxi or bus service that runs close to the property so... More

I've written many reviews, and sadly this is one which pains me to write. St. Maarten has been very good to us over the years, but this time...Let me explain. First, I have to give a huge thanks to Normand, who seemed to be the one overseeing and caring to the needs of the guests. He was amazing! There were... More

The view was fantastic, out the window or from the balcony ! It was a very quiet location, and we felt very safe there. There was an old fellow patrolling the grounds at night. The pool overlooked the ocean, and it was a beautiful spot, hardly used. We enjoyed the pool, brought down some music, snacks and drinks, and it... More

Initially, it seemed very remote from restaurants & shopping. The resort itself is clean however many units were in disrepair but not ours. The 2nd bedroom in our unit was accessed only by a very steep set of stairs which would not be good for elderly guests or very young children.The kitchen was well equipped but did not have an...

This is quiet community. If you want to enjoy the rest of the Island and shop you must have rental car. Taxis are not cheap. Laundry can be arranged for a price (approx. $8.00/ load). The beach is only a few steps away and poor swimmers should stay close to shore due to the under current. The beutiful pool is... More

no stove, no washer/dryer. Only 2 burners on the stove worked. When it rained we had to put a towel by the door so much water was coming in. Lots of ants in room. 2 bedroom, only kids would fit in beds upstairs. Definitely need a rental car. Beach not for sunning or swimming. Onsite management hard to reach. Not... More

Here is what you need to know. Some of the Villas are privately owned and occupied. Some are privately owned and rented out. Some are part of the RCI exchange network. My family and I stayed through RCI. We found our unit to be quite nice. The location is out of the way --- residential. You definitely need a rental... More

i shared a villa at Guana Bay and had the most amazing time. The villa was beautiful, clean, and well maintined. The complex was good - love the pool and the views. This location is not in the main steam of the island's high life, but well within distance to all the hotspots and beaches. I would definitely recommend Villa... More

I will start by saying the owner had this review removed the first time I wrote it claiming we did not stay there so our review was not allowed. Let me correct that, We DID spend 1 night there! We had no other option upon arriving at 4pm February 14. I have photos detailing the claims in the review below.... More
