We stayed here last week, 7-14th February in unit 402A&B on an Interval Exchange from one of our Marriott properties. We had been on the island for just over a week in a private rental so needed to store our luggage & some food items long before check in at 4pm. The front desk could not have been more obliging...

My wife and I stayed at the villas from January 6th to February 5th. The resort was magnificent. The rooms were modern with full sized appliances and granite very spacious and very clean. We stayed in a one bedroom suite on the 5th floor. Huge decks overlooking the Bay. The view of The Bay couldn't be any nicer with views... More

We had mixed reviews for this property, pros: Metal at the pool bar is the best, the friendliest person that works here. He goes out of his way to make sure you are satisfied. Location is great, rooms clean, great views. Cons: we requested a high floor when we booked, we got in late, and we're given a first floor... More

Lobby view of the water is gorgeous - all glass. Staff was attentive. Checked into a junior suite which was nice. Two full beds, kitchenette (microwave, fridge, toaster, coffeemaker and sink with all dishes, etc.). Walked the property - pools are clean - medium sized with pool bars. One minute walk to beach. Rooms are pool & waterfront, but there... More

On our way to our cruise ship my wife and I stayed at this resort only one night so this review could never be comprehensive of the entire facility. Unfortunately our first impression was tainted by complete bedlam at check in. Total time for check in 1&1/2 hours with no sign of porter assistance. Our suite (2 Rooms) was large... More

We stayed here for 2 nights and 3 days. We spent the first 9 days of our trip at a different hotel up the road, but wanted to celebrate the new year in more of a "resort" setting. Check in was routine, and we found there is a free shuttle to Philipsburg, which was nice! Our first evening we couldn't... More

Have to tell you , that this was the best vacation ever. Apartment was super clean and big. The kitchen was a hit. Grocery shopping just few steps away and you can save $$$$$ money if you are on the budget. Alcohol is also conveniently sold in the local supermarket and the prices are better then in the airport.

Not exactly what I expected. Booked a trip for New Years but have never been to the Island. This is not the party side of the St. Martin but good for family. It has a very nice location and the general property is nice. One thing that really stood out is that we did not have hot water one day... More

This was our 5th time on the island but our first here at this resort. We were very pleased with our room. Very clean. We had a ground floor room & that was so nice to be able to step right out from our patio onto the sidewalk & have the pool right there. I loved all the restaurants &... More

The simpson bay resort is great for people traveling with friends or staying a long length of time. We stayed there 2 nights (beginning of our honeymoon) I will say we didn't spend a ton of time on the resort here is what I got from our short stay Pros- lots of amenities on site, we loved the Jamaican patties...
