We are frequent travelers to St Maarten. So frequent that last year we purchased a timeshare at the Westin. Last week was my first time back since the purchase. The resort was clean, well kept and the food was good. However, I was very disappointed from day 1 of check in. We were supposed to have a 2Queen room and... More

Went with my fiancee to a conference at the hotel. I'm still questioning where all the money goes. We ended up staying for only the first two nights, while spending the next three at a nearby, less expensive hotel. My only thought is that the extensive facilities and the very, very large and ever-present staff fuel the high room cost.... More

Just had a great time at this resort - March 2015. We had a condo which was nice - more private but still only a minute walk away from the pool and bar. Ocean - right out the front door. The condo was about 1800 square feet. 2 bedrooms; what we called a sitting room; washer/dryer; two bathrooms. There was... More

The hotel is quite nice, pool and beach are lovely. The best thing about the beach is it is private, which is hard to find on the island. The water is perfectly clear, moderate waves and current. My only complaint would be the lack of umbrellas. You can get a "bubble" chair cover for $28 a day, which is a... More

Beautiful hotel, but the best part is the beach and pool and all of the great people that insure you have everything you need while you are enjoying same.

This hotel is very nice, clean and updated. I really enjoyed the exclusivity of the location. The beach was great and clean. The water was amazing as well. I had an ocean front room on the first floor and the view was amazing. Nothing like waking up to see the ocean everyday. The only thing is that you will need... More

We found this to be a very nice hotel. It has a small casino with slots and table games, and there is a nice restaurant with a large outdoor patio area. The rooms are nice and comfortable, and the staff was friendly.

The Westin Dawn Beach is a beautiful and almost isolated Hotel and I've stayed twice. This was by far the better experience in terms of courteous, helpful and friendlier customer service. Given that it's a 4 Star and Starwood Resort property, there is still room for improvement though. I noticed stains in the bathroom and some areas of the carpets... More

My family and I recently returned from the Westin in St. Maarten and we loved it! Upon walking in the hotel the staff asked us if this was our first time in St. Maarten (which it was) and they upgraded us to a room with a standing balcony and a stunning view of the ocean. We spent most of our... More
