This is a clean and comfortable hotel with time share condos. The service of the staff is excellent, food at the hotel is of good quality and reasonably priced. As you can see there's a large swimming pool, swim up bar and tents that you can book for relaxing around the pool or at the beach. The beach is very... More

My wife and kids have been coming to St. Martin for over 25 years and absolutely love the island. After a horrendous experience in a tiny and poorly designed room at Grand Case Beach Club, we decided to move over to the Westin. It was the best vacation decision we've made in years. The property and staff at this hotel... More

Traveled to the island and stayed here a few days. The place is immaculately maintained. Check-in was speedy and the beach - room was spectacular. Had the champagne brunch and an island tour with taxi driver Josine. Absolutely wonderful vacation stay.

(This review is not about the hotel itself) My friends and I wanted to explore Dawn Beach. Though we were not staying at the Westin, we wanted to visit all the best beaches in St maarten, and Dawn Beach was on our list. Unfirtunately, most of the beach area belongs to the Westin and as soon as we arrived, the... More

I am reviewing the Ocean Restaurant at the Westin. We decided to eat here one night because it was right next to the Princess Heights Hotel where we stayed. The food was mediocre, as was the service, and atmosphere. Next time I would get in the car and drive 5 minutes down the road to the marina restaurants. Regarding the... More

Stayed 3 nights and they were great. The view from our room was at the extended left side of the beach property - and it was great. We could see the city lights across the bay from us, and we could see unfettered views of the beach. I read reviews about sea-weed etc. It was virtually non-exsistant and what was... More

My family and I stayed at the Dawn Beach Club Condos at The Westin for 2 weeks. The Condos are well appointed and very comfortable. One of the bonuses of staying at Dawn Beach Club is being able to take advantage of all the hotel amenities. The spa,gym, even room service were available to us! The staff at the pool... More

The ocean restaurant first of all messed up the drink completely, they gave me a wrong drink. Ok, they fixed that that's not a huge issue. I then ordered the fish tacos and listed on the menu they were to come with lettuce tomato jalapeño mango salsa and more and only came with fish and melted cheese. It was served... More
