Just returned from a week at The Westin Dawn Beach. First time we stayed since buying at resort. The apartment was lovely. Three great sized bedrooms, 4 flat screen TVs. Full kitchen, two bathrooms. Huge living room. Stayed in building D. Only the third floor is open in this building. It's the one highest up, and furthest away from the... More

Stayed in timeshare of hotel and it was beautiful. The down side to staying there is that unless you plan to stay right there, you will need a car or a fortune on taxis. The beach was really rough and full of seaweed. Never got in the ocean there. Drove to other beaches.

This was our second trip to St Martin, as well as to the Dawn Beach Club (timeshare section). We were traveling with a group of 8, and were lucky enough to exchange in to 2 separate units having had 2 weeks available to exchange. I made a request a couple of weeks prior to check-in for units that were A.... More

We were looking for a completely relaxing beach vacation and that is what we got! The best thing is that the lovely pool, with an infinity edge, is right on the beach so you can go back and forth easily and see the gorgeous beach view from the pool. We had an amazing pool/beach view from our room, which I... More

This was our first family vacation to the Caribbean, and it was really great. We stayed at the dawn beach club area of the Westin property. We had a three bedroom suite, with two bathrooms and full kitchen. The unit was spotless!!! Fresh towels and garbage pickup everyday. Whatever you reguested, you would receive.

We stayed here for 2 nights before going to Anguilla. Thank god it was only 2 nights the view was beautiful the hotel and the food was not so good. Hotel was a bit out dated and they couldn't get a grilled cheese right. With that being said if you go outside the resort for food beaches etc.. it's okay... More

I stayed in the Westin for a week of the 4th of July weekend with two small children and my parents. Pros: Good location, it is on the border of the French and the Dutch side so you can visit a lot of different beaches and towns from here without driving a lot. Check in was good, was offered room...

This was our third visit to St Maarten. St Maarten is wonderful. We took a private tour of the island. Our driver, Marcel, was fantastic, fun and knowledgeable. Ask for him, you will not be disappointed. His number is 721.581.9376. The pool area of the hotel is fantastic. The only not so good thing was the sales people wanting you... More

Stayed here for 1 night before we took the ferry to St. Barths. Its an ok hotel overall. Rooms and bathrooms are spacious but not very luxurious. The staff were helpful and nice. The pacquiao vs may weather fight was played in the casino on a big screen which was great. The pools also looked nice, but we left early... More
