I bought my first time share week in 1988. At that time, the Pelican was a family friendly destination. Absolutely every employee knew you name and, every time you returned, they made you feel as if you were a member of a very special family. The entire resort was structured to give every guest the opportunity to experience an "island"... More

I'll start by saying I am a creature of habit, and always go to Cancun. Mexico was too expensive this year, so we took a recommendation and headed to St Maarten. So glad we selected this hotel. My wife and I took our 2 young children (3 & 6), and they had a blast. We opted for the 2 bedroom... More

I finally gave this Resort a try and boy was I happy I did. I was traveling with my wife and child of 2. We took a one bedroom suite. The rooms at the villas all have an ocean view, so you can't go wrong there.Rooms are very clean, furniture as well and enough space for my 2 year old... More

Just returned from a week at the Villas at Simpson Bay Resort (Saturday to Saturday). We lucked out and no hurricanes this September – it was gorgeous. This was our fourth visit to St. Maarten and the Villas. As always, it was wonderful. We are lucky to have friends we travel with, who own a timeshare (back home in Pennsylvania)... More

We have always very much enjoyed the Suites at the Villas. However our recent visit was not as satisfying, and disappointing. Great location for sure. Nice spacious suites, with water view, which is great. However this time around, we had many problems with the room, which caused a lot of inconvenience. Some issues were not corrected, which is uncalled for.... More

I went to this hotel for business with clients from Japan for three nights. We arrived to the hotel and my clients were exhausted from just arriving from the other side of the world. We then proceeded to stand at the counter trying to check in for over an hour. The attendant had to check us in over the phone... More

Just returned from 5 days at the Villas (the Villas are only a part of the resort, made up of several large buildings with 6 pools on the entire resort--some way too far to be practical). . Background: We're a middle-aged couple and brought our two children, their spouses and one baby each. We were in a one bedroom suite... More

Got a 2bdrm suite online 4 nights less than $800. Stayed in 312 a/b, connecting room with lots of room for kids and privacy for Mom and Dad. Great view, nice amenities including maid service and full kitchen. You'll need a car if you stay here (or most anyplace else on the island). Great snorkeling Little Bay, enjoyed Phillipsburg, Marigot... More

We stayed at the Villas from 8/6-811. Three of us- a one bedroom marina view suite on the 6th floor with the two murphy beds was just fine. The room was fine- a little outdated with regards to the furniture and TVS. Appliances in the kitchen too- outdated. But cleaning services came everyday and we have no other complaints about... More

My husband and I just returned from our vacation at the Villas and feel there were positives and negatives. Our villa was a renovated one-bedroom and overlooked Simpson Bay-could not have had a better view. The unit itself was well-appointed and all the amenities were great. The balcony wage huge! Management’s response to any issues was immediate and very satisfactory-and... More
