What a lovely place to be! This was our first trip to St. Maarten and we wanted to find something fairly close to the airport so we could experience the aircraft taking off like a lot of people do when they come here. The Simpson Bay resort was spot on! We asked for a room with a view over the... More

I made the reservation on Booking.com 2 weeks before and they charge full amount to my American Express. When I arrived to the hotel after waiting paciently for 25 minutes a get a... More

Stayed at this hotel for eight days on a leisure trip. This huge resort could be a very good hotel if it wasn’t for the management. There are many sites, we stayed at the Villas. The rooms are ample, updated, good mattresses, good towels, mini fridge and microwave oven included. Free, pretty reliable internet. Free parking on premises. Nice well... More

Not sure why some people leave bad reviews of this place. Our experience was totally positive. Staff was friendly , especially sweet Jenni at the front desk. Our room was lovely, spotlessly clean and very comfortable. The deck was so large. Kitchen was lovely with it's granite counter tops and large bathroom dressing area. Comfy beds. I felt like you...

Simpson Bay Resort is in a nice location right on the beach. This area of St Martin is touristy enough to have plenty to do but not overly-touristy like some other parts of the island. There are lots of restaurants and bars within walking distance. The beds and pillows weren't the best, but service was good and the price was... More

In January 2015 my husband and I went to St. Martin for our honeymoon. We were originally staying at the Towers at Mullet Bay but that place was such a nightmare we chose to leave. We were only at the Villas for two days but they were incredible. We walked into our room while housekeeping was still cleaning it. They... More

We stayed here for 2 enjoyable weeks. The Villas are recently updated/remodeled. We had a 2 bedroom/ 2 bath unit with a king bed and 2 double beds. The bathrooms and kitchen have granite countertops and the floors are tile. LOTS of space in the bathrooms which is very nice. Clean pool with swim-up bar. The beach area for the... More

We used to stay on another hotel at SMX because we had a timeshare, this time we stayed at The Simpson bay resort and we liked it better! The rooms are very spacious and updated. The only thing I couldn't manage is the A/C.. It works nice but it goes on Auto and it stops and goes and I don't... More
