Vacationed with family in St Maarten last week. Stayed at Villas at Simpson Bay. Resort was great. Perfect location for beaches and restaurants. Hotel staff very helpful and pleasant. Special appreciation to Stephen Harry, resort shuttle driver and island taxi driver (#406). Polite and knowledgable. We used him all week with no hitches. His US phone is (908)552 6943 and... More

Our second stay here, and both times we have been impressed. For the same money, or less than other comparable hotels in St. Maarten you get a large, well-appointed room, enough to sleep 4-6 if required. a spotless, fully fitted kitchen with new appliances, and free wi-fi. The villas are all in a secured development (see attached map of layout),... More

Simpson Bay Villas is located in an overbuilt and tawdry area of St. Maarten. Check-in took over an hour as we requested an upgrade to a suite with a full kitchen. They refused to tell us the cost of this, saying that we would need to contact Expedia for the final tally. The villa itself was lovely, with a great... More

As a family of 8, including 3 children, we rented 2 apartments and stayed 10 nights. It was the first time at this resort. In the past, we had stayed at similar resorts on other islands. Though the location was very nice, the rooms were just adequate and the facilities were somewhat lacking. The beach area was tiny and the... More

We loved the Villas for many reasons. The balcony had great views of the water and was peaceful for the most part; ours was over the bar and was quite noisy when people were drunk. The property was recently purchased by Royal Resorts, and they are upgrading everything. Parts of the resort were under construction. Most notably, the breakfast restaurant... More

We have stayed here several times. We typically stay in the two-bedroom suite with another couple and split the cost. This year, we ended up booking late and weren't able to get that. We ended up still with an ocean view, but we were put in a "Superior Junior Suite". If you're staying just a few days I guess this... More

Don't waste your money folks. Employees are unfriendly, food from the select restaurants aren't worth it. Better off going to Burger King, expensive and if you are lucky enough to get an updated room be prepared for a long climb up a hill every time you want to leave your room.

Located in the heart of Simpson Bay , close to great restaurants, night life, and a beautiful beach. This resort has amazing accommodations, very roomy suite, extremely clean with a full size balcony. Although we stayed only 1 night at the end of our two weeks n St Maarten, we would not hesitate to come back.
