This is a good place to trade for on St. Maarten. If I had to pay cash, I would probably stay elsewhere. We only were able to get a Studio, so it wasn't very large, but even that size room has a 1/2 kitchen. OBBR is on the Windward side of the island. Dawn beach (adjacent to the property) can... More

This is predominantly an older vacationer resort. Being in my early 30's, I was definitely a minority, but I am glad I stayed here. Though this is on the Dutch side of the island, it is right on the French divide. This is far away from the hustle and bustle of the Dutch areas that are busy, loud, and touristy.... More

Keep in mind that we're a couple in our 30s and we were the among the youngest people there by several decades, but if you're not ageists and are looking for a quiet relaxing stay, it is a great place. We were hotel guests, not time-sharers. The staff is extremely friendly and helpful and you MUST try the pastries at... More

What a wonder resort to vacation at! The resort staff was incredible, the facilities are great and the rooms very spacious! I love it so much I decided to buy a time share- and what a great deal they had going on. I have many friends who enjoy the property and Ingrid made the decision to become an owner very... More

My wife and I traded our timeshare thru Interval International for a week at Oyster Bay in 2012. We enjoyed the experience so much, we did it again this year. Beautiful, restful vacation on the beach. Oyster Bay is more of a couples spot than young families, although there were several such families there. Accommodations are good--not luxurious--but clean, slightly... More

We are not owners, we spent 8 nights there and were very pleased. I was concerned because of some bad reviews. We were in a studio which was quite small, very clean, with a dorm size fridge and microwave and coffee pot. We had no intention on cooking so it suited us fine. We did not spend any time on...

I stayed 02/15 for 1 week. This is not an ultra modern resort. However, it is very clean, the decor is tropical and cozy. The staff are very friendly and helpful. It is on the Dutch side of the island = quiet. The beach is beautiful. The units have everything you need. The pool and "Hot tub" are sparkling. I... More

OBBR has a consistently outstanding staff. We have stayed here for several years and it always exceptional. Maxwell at the Thrifty car rental is very helpful. So are the beach attendants on Dawn Beach. jim and Lynette

Did a first exchange through Interval. Was nervous going in to it for many reasons...varied room/resort reviews, recent beach issues with seaweed, the fact that we weren't renting a car and were recommended by most to do so, distance from resort to eateries, etc. It ended up being a wonderful vacation for us. We were beyond happy and satisfied, making... More
