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

This place was fabulous! I have been traveling to st Lucia for the past 5 years & decided to return to st Maarten. I'm glad I did. The Villas have everything you need, all within walking distance. I will definitely be back soon!

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

Simpson Bay Villas are really nice. Beautiful views, lots of activities, short walk to the beach, (which is a personal favorite). Next time (and I WILL be back) I'll get the room without the kitchen. There are so many good restaurants in the area all we did was make coffee in the morning and off we went to find yet... More

My wife booked 1 night at The Simpson Bay Resort (prior to our normal timeshare stay elsewhere). The room was on street level with no view which we didn't mind. The setup in the room was better than I expected (based on my bad experience there from last year). The kitchen was well equipped for 2 people. Having some good... More

It's very well located. You have nearby great restaurants, French bakery's and a mini market that has everything that you will need. They have multiple options for kids to have fun. The villa is big and comfortable. The only reason why we are giving a 4 is due to the stiffness of the bed. Other than that is great!

What more to ask for than beach, sun, drinks and most of all FUN. People are friendly and service is good. Food is excellent as well as the atmosphere. Love this place!!! Night life is very good and bands are excellent. Beautiful view from our room and pool is very clean.
