This was my second visit to the hotel. I try to highlight what sets a property apart to be most helpful to readers. This Westin is reliable and everything that one would expect from a Westin. What makes it different is the service. We stayed for 2 nights. Romelia greeted us at 10:30 pm. There was a glitch in our... More

My family and I visited the hotel using a day pass. We were in St. Maarten for the day on a cruise ship, so this was perfect for us. We wanted to avoid the crowds and decided to stay away from Orient Beach. In addition, I have kids and don't want to explain to them why someone is naked on... More

So this is a nice hotel. but just nice. not great. The staff was decent. no issue there. the rooms were lovely. WE stayed in one of their ocean from condo suites. Very lovely. Great service. no complaints there. This is not the best location though. And the beach is very very rough. not really swimmable at all. It's a... More

My wife and I stayed recently, and everything was awesome. Our room had a great view, and Antonio and Hurisa at the front desk were great and friendly. They knew a lot about the island and what was going on. They always gave us great referrals for the night life. The bartenders were very friendly as well. There were time... More

We recently vacationed Oyster Bay a few weeks ago and came to Westin in our first day. We were accosted by several people about the timeshare. As others have mentioned , it was very dangerous having people flag you down and stick their head in your car! The people were very rude and unprofessional and promise you things just to... More

If you travel a lot for business, you know what to expect at a Westin, and Dawn Beach is no exception. Rooms were clean, service was good, and pricing was in-line with the higher end on the island. The location is just a little off the main road, and getting either to Phillipsburg or the French side is really easy.... More

My hubby and I stayed here four nights for a one year anniversary. They brought champagne up to the room, and were incredibly swift & attentive in all of our needs - last minute toiletries, room service, directions, reservations, etc. The pool (and especially the hot tub) had a wonderful view of the ocean - the drinks were awesome. Typical... More

We went to the Westin with friends for it's buffet brunch including all you can drink mimosas and it surpassed our expectations. The service was very good and the selection of foods was vast and tasty. We lived and worked in the Caribbean and our main waiter was Simon; he was very attentive and friendly. All the staff was quick... More

This review includes comments related to the Westin resort and the timeshare condos, Dawn Beach Club. We spent 8 days/7 nights in mid-June which was great. Not a lot of cruise shops and no crowds. The Westin Resort is beautiful, exquisitely maintained and most folks were very friendly. However, being a very picky and experienced Caribbean traveler, there were a... More
