Service was great at front desk, smiles and very accommodating. Service in the restaurant for breakfast was so SLOW!!!! Now if you got the buffet, there was no problem but ordering off the menu was 30-40 minutes, seriously and they were not busy. Pool beautiful just like pixs and no problem with finding any chairs. Bed was heavenly and the... More

The staff are very friendly and helpful although make sure to read the fine print...nothing's free. The room was decent with a large bathroom except the view was terrible (expected the ocean and instead got laundry hanging to dry), and there were only two outlets in the entire room. I recommend using a different beach. The gift store was about... More

We were considering getting a time share bc of the Westin name. Boy were we duped!! They didn't have our reservation, and were continuing to "straighten it all out" night before our departure, as our airline tickets were already purchased etc.. Upon arrival we were advised of "additional charges", and our room was not ready. We killed time ordering lunch... More

The suite we stayed in was very nice. However most of the staff appeared disinterested. No activities available on the resort and no shade provided for the pool and beach areas. The resort is located far enough away that a rental car is a must. We stayed in one of the condo suites owned by a friend. The view would... More

Currently staying here for 7 days. We arrived yesterday after renting a car from airport. I was very apprehensive about coming here after all the negative reviews. Fortunately everything has been marvelous. Have not encountered ANY timeshare stalkers at all. We have only been here 2 days and I am very impressed. We are having a nice Anniversary dinner at...

Everyday was a blast staying at this place. We never had any problems and the service was excellent. If you come here make sure you have a chat with the best security man I've ever met on vacation, his name is Shane.

Great place for the kids! 35 minute taxi ride from the airport. Room was more than adequate and up to date. Rooms were clean as were the hotel grounds. Restaurants were not walkable from the Westin, kind of a bummer as taxis are quite expensive. There is one restaurant in the hotel, we had a themed buffet there one night.... More

I have just returned from the Westin Dawn beach in St. Maarten! LOVED IT!! It is so beautiful and relaxing there! One thing we noticed that the people of the island were not after your money, they were after you to RETURN! All of them would say "when are you coming back" A couple of employee's who stood out at... More

We are currently staying at the Westin Dawn Beach. I normally write a review when I return home; however, I couldn't wait to share my wonderful experience. The hotel is up to our awesome Westin standard. The location is wonderful, with soft waves putting us to sleep at night. The hotel staff is VERY customer-service focused. What you ask for... More

If you are the type of vacationer who likes to start gulping cheap American beer with a gang of your most annoying friends at 10:30am so you're drunk by noon and take over a resort with your friends by yelling and screaming and jumping around like a bunch of high schoolers on spring break, without a care for the others...
