Food was terrible. Not a fresh mango seen and I saw mango trees with ripe mangos! Huge, tired hotel. Very friendly staff and willing and wanting to please. Beds are great as well as ocean view from room. No clothesline in bathroom to hang wet swimsuits. Carpet in rooms seems dirty and I never heard or saw a vacuum the... More

St Marten is a beautiful but poor island. Getting there I rented a car which was an experience because the roads are very narrow and poorly kept , no shoulders , cars,people dogs and goats are road hazards-that being said it was no more difficult than NYC. Plus driving allows you to escape The Isolated Westin. The directions are a... More

I have read a lot of reviews and this place seems to be getting a bad rap. We stayed there for 6 days and did not encounter any problems. As a matter of fact, the customer service was nothing less than outstanding and may I clarify, outstanding from all of the staff members. My gratitude goes to the manager, David,... More

The hotel is unimpressive and it has an odor. Our rooms weren't ready upon arrival. When we finally got one of our rooms it smelled like mildew so they switched it for us. The second room smelled better but shower was dirty. We stayed three nights because we had pre-paid and they wouldn't refund us our money. They didn't vacuum... More

I was in St. Maarten for work and stayed 2 nights in the Westin on the Dutch side. It was such a disappointment. The lobby area is dominated by a casino where NO ONE was playing except one pitiful looking man pulling the shot machine lever. Depressing. An attractive bar with big screen tvs would seem to be a better... More

This hotel is beautiful and clean. Location is an issue. If you have never been to St. Martin before do not rent a car! Getting to this hotel is a bit hairy so leave it to the professionals. After a series of compact dark winding roads you come to a sheer drop that leads to the hotel. If you have... More

Nice property, great beach and pool. Food is so, so. You should definitely rent a car, and get out for at least one meal a day, the cost of taxis will add up very quickly. Service is good, although the employees didn't seem that happy.
