Everything is so well done. Grocery store within 100 yards, 3 excellent restaurants within 150 yards, accommodations are clean and comfortable. Service is great on all fronts. The car rental on sight is very convenient. We're extending our visit by 2 days since its been so enjoyable. The only downside was the beach on the premises, Dawn Beach, which unfortunately... More

The good: The staff seem fairly diligent. The towel service was good. The pool area is beautiful. They really tried to keep the seaweed off of the beach. The bad: Oh where to start? I was there on a honeymoon and we had to bug out of our room on at least two days. One day for a power outage... More

We booked a one week stay on a time share exchange and loved the experience. The facilities, area and atmosphere were excellent. The personnel on this resort work hard to project a truly "we care" attitude. The only area we did not enjoyed was Dawn Beach, that due that the recent weather had brought onshore an unusual amount of sea... More

Great resort with just everything you would need for a fabulous vacation. This resort has it all. Fine dining, activities, great bars all within the complex and just down the road, a casino for the gambler in you. The activities desk, can book you on just about any type of excursion, be it scuba diving, touring the island in a... More

St Martin itself is a bit disappointing--away from the French side--somewhat dirty and crowded. The hotel is time-share focused--which makes it feel like one big sales-pitch. Food is mediocre. The bar is pretty good and the water aerobics instructor is great! The pool is good but not much beach. Registration is like a game of trying to guess what magic... More

2nd time I have visited oyster bay and this place fails to disappoint. The rooms are clean, tidy and well equipped. My room faced the marina which was beautiful. The resort has a pool which was busy most days and the beach was equally close so plenty of choice where to spend your time. Locally there is a shop selling... More

I've stayed twice at the OBBR and loved it both times. It's one of the most friendly and well run hotels I've come across in the Caribbean. I had a great studio room with a view over their pretty infinity pool and across the ocean to St Barth's. It's not a 'trendy' hotel: more a classic Caribbean old style resort... More
