5 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

Spent 5 nights here in January. We pretty much navigated the entire island during our stay, and gotta say that the Oyster Pond area is truly one of the nicest areas. Resorts, restaurants, nice homes and safe streets.

Last year we found Saint Maarten for the first time and we purchased a time share at OBBR. On arrival we were given a room that while dated and small- overlooked Dawn Beach. We made new friends who toured us al around the island and kept us busy and happy. We promptly bought a second week of timeshare and upgraded... More

Overall, my friend and I had a great stay. The service was really wonderful. While we found the resort guests to be a bit older than we anticipated, and most of the activities and ambiance geared toward them, we still had a great relaxing stay. We spent a lot of time all over the island, so I didn't really have... More

With beach just steps away, infinity pool on coral rocks, view of St. Bart's, Infinity Restaurant and Bar with incredible views, proximity to Caribbean and Atlantic beaches, access to fine dining, "Lo-Lo" food, and "rock-star" party venues , Oyster Bay Beach Resort has it all. Service and housekeeping are present for every need – – almost without the asking. We... More

Pleasant resort, but not our favorite Caribbean island. The beach right outside our window (we had a room at the far end of the resort, far from the lobby and right next to the beach, which we appreciated at first) had this awful smelling brown seaweed piling up on the sand. You could easily smell it in our room if... More

On the advice of friends who have time shares in OBBR we decided to take a long weekend to check St. Martin' s beaches. We were not disappointed and it was the fastest weekend to pass. One definitely needs more than 3 days to enjoy this paradise. The ride from the airport was long and roads were congested because there... More

At first glance, this resort really needs a face lift. The upside is that all employees go out of their way to help and make you feel comfortable. A rental car is a must (do this at the airport, it's easy to follow the signs to the resort),use it to visit both capital cities, and stay there for lunch/dinner. Beau... More

OBBR has done a good job of keeping things updated. Very clean. Comfortable beds. Roomy. Nicely decorated. Great pool and view. Friendly, helpful staff. Safe. On the downside, lots of old vacationers, the beach at present (this can change from time to time).

Great Place to stay - I go every year. People, Place, Food, Staff all very good. Only drawback is paying for wifi. Free in lobby/pool area. Restaurants are plentiful to me. Usual stay on property. Timeshare.
