This was our first visit to the Westin Dawn Beach location. We were there for a week on a combination business seminar and vacation. The hotel was very nice, our beachfront room was lovely and the service was outstanding! Beautiful beach with plenty of active surf. I would recommend and I hope to return.

This is the 3rd Westin property we have stayed on. The rooms were a great size; the bathroom was huge! The fridge comes fully stocked with items to purchase which is a pain when you want to refrigerate your own stuff. All of the staff was accommodating and interested in making your stay the best it could be. The concierge,... More

This was our third visit to Dawn Beach - we actually stayed in the affiliated time share. Love the place overall and will be back. - pool is lovely and the staff are great - beach is a bit rough and rocky and getting out can be tough - Oyster Pond has some good restaurants, but after that it's a...

Our room was a good size, the pool was nice, enjoyed seeing the iguanas walking around the pool. Drinks and smoothies were good, as was food on the restaurant called Ocean. Beach is pretty small and water is full of rocks, not the fault of th hotel, just mention it as you shouldn't expect to spend a lot of time... More

Overall I like this property. It could use a fresh coat of paint, but so can virtually every other hotel in the Caribbean. This hotel is located on the eastern shore of the island so it does tend to be a little windier, but that keeps things cool and eliminates any bugs. The western side is of course calmer. We... More

Fran at the concierge desk was awesome - I was there with a big group of customers and logistically, we kept needing to add people and cancel people. She scheduled a Mardi Gras trip to this little area on the French side - and when I had to add 6 people to our party of 15 - she suggested a... More

Being Starwood Platinum, we were tricked into booking here. Sadly, we should have just spent the extra 40 mins to get to Saint Barth. This "resort" is dirty and it smells damp. Ashley from Service Express assures me that the towels are not normal. At this point, we have a yellow smear, a long brown pooh smear, and two black... More

We attended a meeting here last month. It was better than I expected based upon the reviews. Our room was well appointed and clean. The service was very good. The only down side was the rough surf and the difficulty in walking to neighboring locations.

Stayed for a few nights and would recommend this to friends. A very nice hotel located with direct beach access. Friendly staff and large room with a bathroom that was almost too large. Lots of room to spread out and relax. My only warning would be that if you have a room near the pool area, the hotel plays music... More

We stayed for two nights at the Westin Dawn Beach Resort, January 21 thru January 23, 2016. The hotel is on the Dutch side of the island and is an easy drive from the airport. The staff was friendly and professional, and the facilities were very well maintained. Our room was very comfortable and very clean. The restaurants and the... More
