If you are a traveler who likes to know what they're in for, you will happily find no surprises here. The resort is not so huge that you feel swamped, not so small that you ache to leave. The food is good, the facilities are comprehensive, the beach is close, the pool is divine. I had one of the best... More

While the entire staff is lovely they clearly need a standard to follow regarding customer service. The front desk manager, Nadine told us the property is not owned by Westin and has limited participation with Starwood even though there is huge Westin sign and a line clearly labeled Starwood at the front desk. We were dumbfounded. PROS: the rooms are... More

Location is great..right at the beach but water is not very swimmable..as there are too many stones. No umbrella on the beach though. 2. The staff/reservation manager (Mark) were very nice and helpful. 3. I got upgraded to a beach facing... More

When we checked in we were told the hotel was 100% full and upgrades were not available. The bell staff told that hotel was 80% full. When... More

As a gay man traveling alone, I was not welcome to participate in the activities offered by the hotel through its time-share business. Dawn Beach Time-Share salesladies on the hotel's staff approach straight couples at the pool and offer them really nice things like $120 dinners and all-day catamaran cruises to St Barth's in exchange for taking a tour of...
