The aggregate of the previous reviews would be pretty representative of our stay. The front desk staff was friendly and helpful, our ocean view (we received a complimentary upgrade from a marina view) was gorgeous, there are some nice restaurants and grocery stores within walking distance (the hills are exhausting in the heat), but the rooms definitely need a good...

Enjoyed our stay at Captian Oliver's in St Martin. The view of Oyster Pond was beautiful. The room was spacious and clean. All of the staff were extremely friendly. There was a great outdoor space to enjoy the views and warm breeze. And the restaurant was great too. This is a more serene part of the island but still has... More

Sad to see this hotel decline ---we have stayed here several times , but they are in the middle of a legal mess of ownership after Capt. Oliver passed away and things are not improving. Property poorly maintained/ security doing nothing/ bar staff not good at accurate change/ room kitchens poorly equipped/ can only pay room by credit card in... More

Arrived at this hotel after leaving another to find that part of this place had no power, rolling blackouts on the French side. However, our rooms did have power. Room was better than the last place that I left to come here, but more expensive. Donna the desk clerk was trying to please a couple that was complaining about the... More

After reading some of the reviews I was skeptical about staying here. We had an ocean view room and so glad we did. There was nothing better than sitting on the lanai in the morning/evening and relaxing and watching the great view. The room is simple. The Mattress is hard and not very comfortable at all. Housekeeping was good but... More

Although we arrived late (almost 10 pm) we were greeted by a friendly and helpful desk clerk who got us checked in. We were in room 101, which was at the end of the building. The room was large, and although dated was clean and comfortable. A king bed was missing the box spring, just a mattress on a frame.... More

Captain Oliver's has a fantastic setting! The problem is the room. There is an odor in the rooms and in the dresser drawers. The bed has no box spring, just a mattress on a wood frame and the pillows needed to be replaced. The shower was antiquated with minimal hot water and low water pressure. The room was very spacious... More

We stayed here for three days after our sailing trip. The rooms are nice and overlook the marina and the location is fairly close to a lot of good attractions. For the money you're paying though this is not a very good deal. The place is getting old and maintenance seems to be falling way behind. No water, no electricity... More
