The Westin is located a 20 minute drive from Phillipsburg an about a 35 min drive from the airport. It is built into the back of a large hill and is on a great stretch of beach. One of the things I REALLY didn't like upon arriving was I was immediately accosted THREE times to take advantage of the Westin's... More

My daughter and I are at the Westin for the week-end to celebrate her 12th birthday. It's our first night and so far the staff are super friendly and helpful. Hurisa, at the front desk was very helpful and has a beautiful smile which she is not shy to show off. We felt very welcome from the get go and... More

Stayed at the Dawn Beach Club. Staff are always friendly, and very helpful. The Hotel Front and Concierge Desk are excellent. Rahul ,Front Desk manager provides useful tips, especially about visiting the French side. Pool is great-lots of different sections, nice design. Cabana by the beach is an experience not to be missed. Shawn in Security- friendly and adds to... More

Good location away from the hustle and bustle in the center of town, super easy to drive to Philipsburg and Marigot from here. We rented a car and have no issues with getting everywhere and parking - this is definitely cheaper than using taxis. Did not like being asked twice about joining their time share club on the way from... More

Great resort overall - not to secluded from everything. Ideal that it's located on the border of the french and the dutch side. The resort itself is beautiful, food is excellent and staff are friendly. The only downside is that shade is hard to find - and if you find it, it will cost you a pretty penny. The only... More

We wanted to take some time to share our experiences on vacation last week and over the past 4 years at this resort. We always look forward to the Sunday brunch at the Westin Dawn Beach - the variety of food is great and the staff is exceptional year over year -- Melinda, Simone, Simon, Nicholas, Lillian, Quisha, Caron, Sherine,...

We stayed at the Westin Dawn Beach resort for 4 nights/5 days in March 2015. We had a great time and there were a lot of positives about the resort. Breakfast buffet was nice with a wide variety of ready made items and customizable omelets. A little pricey, but that is to be expected at a resort property. We were... More

Ok it's a Westin so I should have had an idea what I was getting into, but I thought, on a Caribbean island, it would be a different experience. This is an average convention hotel with a beach. The good things: staff; they are genuinely nice happy people who engage and want to help you. The staff are the hotels... More

We arrived at this property after a week sailing, and were looking for a restful friendly environment, we found it. Our afternoon by the pool was highlighted by Both Jean, and Kim. These two Hospitality professionals were not only the highlight of our day but one of the main highlights our our entire trip. Their warm engaging smiles, and demeanor... More

We stayed at the Westin for a conference. The rooms are large and clean. The beach is private with no body trying to sell you stuff. There are no umbrellas, but you can rent a covered "bubble". We got one for free as part of the conference. The Westin is isolated so unless you have a car, you will need... More
