Was with my brother and and my son. He suggested we come here instead of Karakter. A very quiet, reserved and excellent spot for good drinks, quiet gathering and excellent food. Bartender was very welcoming. My 2 year old son loves the sand and totally finished the chicken tenders with fries.

We stayed here simply because of the strong reviews on Trip Advisor and they were all spot on! The rooms were great, the view is unbeatable, the staff, service and food were all incredible! When we first arrived, we were an hour early to check in, but they finished preparing the room and checked us right in. Of course we... More

We spent the day at Mary's Boon beach as "boonies". No one helped us with getting beach chairs or umbrellas. We opened up 4 umbrellas before we found one that wasn't broken. The beach is beautiful but the water was a little rough. This could have been because we had been getting a lot of rains and maybe there were... More

Thanks for spending the day at Mary's Boon ! The hotel does lease out the bar and restaurant part of the business to a third party operator and on most days has staff to help day guest with chairs and umbrellas.

The hotel and grounds are very unique. The setting is adjacent from the airport, and yes the planes are loud, but I thought it was quite the experience to witness aircraft so close to a beach setting. The resort is small, quaint and has a ton of flare - cute interesting things to look at in every direction (funny signs).... More

Thank you for your visit and happy to hear you had a good time despite the room issue at check in. Unfortunately being in the tropic's from time to time we do have minor issues with pests and since we had just some extra rain that always brings them out and on the move and not just at our property....

Spent an afternoon here enjoying the view. Had lunch on the beach. Food was wonderful, fresh salad, superbly cooked burger. Great flavor! The service was wonderful; beers were ice cold! Couldn't beat the view. Can't wait to return next year.

We went to the beach for the afternoon and decided to park ourselves at Marys Boon. The cool thing about this place is that as long as you purchase something you can use their parking and their beach chairs as opposed to other restaurants that charge you a price for the chairs alone. As for the sounds generated by the... More

I did not know that this hotel ran along side of the airport. We listened to jets take off till 10pm before we had to get up and leave for our early flight the next day. It is deafening how loud it was. The hotel itself is very quaint and cute. It is along a beach. We were just coming... More

I am sorry to hear about your experience in regards to the bed linens as this is not at all normal. When we have any complaints its normally from guests that arrive late in the day for a one night visit and leave very early the next morning as you did or book into the most budget room. I understand... More
