This is a gorgeous hotel property right on one of St. Maarten's best beaches. We stayed at Dawn Beach Club, which is adjacent to the hotel but services are shared between the properties. I can't recommend it enough. The staff was superb. We were cordially greeted by every staff member we met throughout our stay, but I really want to... More

My wife and I are owners at nearby Oyster Bay Beach Resort and often come over to the Westin to enjoy some meals during our week-long visits. We love the Sunday brunch and look forward to enjoying that on the Sunday after we arrive on Saturday. This latest visit was no exception. We enjoyed brunch here on 7 Dec 2014.... More

Nicely located at the beach. Nice pool. Good cleaning. More should be done to make the empty hall ways more inviting. Rooms average of quality; stayed in a standard room. Level of service by staff around pool and sime in breakfast area plays to the negative side. Food quality decent. Visited during carnival; worth a visit. All in all: was... More

The food was mediocre and the service was painfully slow. I initially thought it was because we weren't Weston guests but it was universal. Standard breakfast buffet for $21.50. Decent lunch and dinner prices for resort food but the chef has no idea how to cook beef. I had beef twice and asked for medium rare and got well done... More

Feels like paradise. Everything was wonderful from the time we checked in until the time we checked out. We were so warmly greeted and served a refreshing citrus drink upon check-in. Tayib at the front desk was so friendly, helpful, and very professional. The room was clean, so very comfortable, and beautifully decorated. Had a nice balcony with pool and... More

Upon Check in Antonio could not have been nicer.Treated like a VIP. Met Rahul Director of rooms. Have dealt with Rahul before. He could not do enough for us.Nothing was a problem.He is a plus 12. Nicolas in the restraurant was so pleasant. He is a credit to the Westin.

I spend a very good time in the WESTIN. Everything is organised to be relax and serene. I want to give a special thanks to Marla and Tayib at the front desk for their sympathy and their effectiveness.
