Captain Oliver's was an absolute delightful place to stay! My husband and I stayed for one week for our honeymoon and can't say enough good things about it. The staff is friendly, accommodating, and very helpful. We had a beautiful ocean-view room and took full advantage of the lovely air-conditioning. We were a tad surprised that the bathrooms were little... More

Dear Cranston_IE, Thank you for taking the time to share your experience with us. We are sorry that we were not up to your satisfaction. You had booked one of our most basic rooms which have not been renovated for the moment and I would suppose this is the reason you describe it as outdated. We take very seriously concerns... More

The location is great if you are planning to sail over to St. Barts. We were there after it had sustained some storm damage. That said, there were some repairs in process. However, repairs would not fix the room safe that had no lock, or the infestation of mosquitos in the room, or the ants crawing around in the kitchen.

Don't expect typical luxury resort. This is the real thing. We stayed for 10 days for our tenth anniversary. Stay amongst friends and mix with local sailing and boating enthusiasts. Or it's a great resort to use as a centre for your exploration of the entire island. Car rental essential. The rooms were clean, spacious and comfortable. Limited kitchen facilities... More

Off the beaten path in the Oyster Bay section on Dutch St. Maarten, my first thought was a great little old Caribbean resort. I was right! A beautiful setting right from the old movies. An old bar right on the marina with views of the ocean. Our first room we checked into didn't have a working AC, so they moved... More

1st. Wifi wasnt working. 2nd. Ac was too high we called the front desk and no one came to fix it 3rd. Kitchen was too small. That's maybe family to a kitchen but it's not. And The coffee maker was burned. 4th. Most channels wasn't working. It was clean and quite. But some things are old. Need to improve
