We had a wonderful vacation but the service could have been better. The concierge was top-notch and bent over backwards to make sure we had babysitters onsite for any dinners we wished to attend. However, the restaurant staff left something to be desired. Ocean restaurant was open at 12:30 for lunch and they seated us on the patio. However, they... More

Don't let Trip Advisor reviews keep you from enjoying this gem. The staff was willing to go out of their way to do anything possible to make our stay wonderful. The room was clean and beautiful, carpet did not smell and no bugs, no tears in curtains. Beautiful bathroom and balcony. It is good to know in advance about the... More

We went in late May which was off season for them. We felt like it was almost a private resort for us and some others that were there. But still great staff, not like nobody was there. Pool bar and beach service was great, Specifically Rosa on the beach. Antonio at the front desk was always great to us especially... More

Trouble even before we arrive. We are owners at the Dawn Beach Club, and at the time of the sales presentation, we were promised many things, it seems, just to make a sale. One of the things promised as an owner, was a flat rate of $200.00 a night at the Westin Hotel, if needed, for a pre or post... More

This is our 5th time here. We love the island and the region in general. Trips to Pinel, Antigua, St Barts and Saba are well worth the effort. The Westin property continues to distinguish itself with first class facilities and service. Its remoteness, getting less every year, is a huge plus. The island traffic only ventures that way if they... More

Just returned from a 6 day trip in St. Maarten where my family and I stayed at the Westin Dawn Beach. The resort is absolutely beautiful and the entire staff was amazing. I travel often and have to say that I have yet to experience the level of hospitality and professionalism as I did here. The rooms, grounds, pool, lobby,... More

My husband and I stayed at the Westin for our honeymoon in November. We were pleased with the room, the view and how nice the amenities were. The hotel was very clean. The pool was nice but did need some shade options besides the $50 cabanas. Also, the steakhouse wasn't open every night so plan to go on a night... More
