The location of our enormous bright room could not have been bettered. On one side of the L shape balcony we overlooked the pool and the marina on the other the sea with the odd pelican dipping into the waters and a view across to St Barths. The room was very comfortable with air con., ceiling fan, fridge, kettle. The... More

The hotel itself is fine. A little run-down (the "aquarium" lost all its residents in the 2011 hurricane, some of the paths / boardwalks would not be safe for kids, etc.), but fine. What is not fine is the currency scam they are running. I was quoted a rate in Euros and intended to pay for my room in Euros.... More

Dear Ekrose, I regret that the first comment you post on Tripadvisor has to be so negative and unfortunately contains various inexactitudes’. We at the hotel are very surprised of the vehement slandering campaign you have been leading against our property on more than one travel forums and are very sorry for any reason that might have lead you to...

I just returned home to the DMV today. The hotel is just that, a bare-bones hotel. I knew going in that it wasn't a high-dollar all-inclusive resort; so my hopes were not up. The room was spacious and clean. The front desk staff are very friendly and helpful as everyone mentions. It wasn't terrible, but it wasn't great. Things I... More

I only stayed here one night from 19-20DEC2014 but really wish I could have stayed longer. The staff were all incredible. Checking in and out was very smooth, especially for a small hotel. The rooms were clean, large, and very comfortable. I was here with my immediate family and we had three rooms with varying views, but the sea view... More

This is an older facility but kept up for what it is. The rooms are average, beds are comfortable. The rooms are clean. Its in a very quiet area but have access to nearby restaurants and bars. I would definitely stay here again. The prices are fair for what you get. We don't spend much time in our room, so... More

I had a great vacation this November there. The reception staff is just great - helpful and friendly at all times. The rooms are very very comfortable, and I would definitely go for the sea view rooms again. I loved that the personnel have helped me numerous times for renting a car, taxi transport and restaurant recommendations. I did noticed... More

I planned a last minute getaway to St Maarten unaware that the Island had been hit by a significant hurricane the previous month. The normal array of great deals that are usually out there at this time of the year (Early Nov) were just not available. In fact several of the places I checked to stay at had no availability...

The front desk staff is really helpful and accomodating. The rooms are comfortable but showing age. Toilets gurgle at night and the tile work is not fresh. The rooms are generally clean and comfortable and the one I had on the bay view was large and nice with a deck looking over the bay. You can walk to a few... More

The front desk staff was extremely friendly and helpful! I felt very welcome and the facilities were absolutely beautiful. The location is fantastic with gorgeous views of both the garden as well as the water. The price is also a great value for the quality of this resort. The personnel Anna, Dona and the manager are super super helpful, they... More
