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...

There aren't enough words to express how wonderful Westin, and their staff, made our stay at St. Maarten over the top. From the moment we checked in, we felt like royalty. The resort is beautiful. The staff goes over and beyond to make you feel welcome. Make sure you find William at the bar. I had a little to much... More

If you're expecting the standards of "a Westin" then sorry you'll be disappointed. There is only one restaurant open during low seasons. Service is extremeing poor in comparison to other Westins. if you want a beach bed you have to pay if you go there I the morning. Some people get away with it by just use after lunch, it's... More

After reading several of the not so nice reviews - we were not going to arrive with any pre-conceived expectations. Number one - Westin is an excellent choice for Accomodations anywhere - especially in paradise. It was very quiet - gorgeous weather and the service and amenities were perfect for us. We had dinner at both restaurants plus enjoyed Pirates... More

I really enjoyed the Westin at Dawn Beach, from what I could see it was one of the nicest resorts on the Island. You will need to rent a car to get there, and the roads are a bit scary. St. Maarten is quite hilly and mountainous. The beach itself is nice, but short so you won't being taking a... More

The hotel itself is a typical Westin hotel. The personnel in the hotel were friendly and I was greeted to by each and every employee that I passed in the hallways and lobby. I did not find any problem with service personnel at the pool and in fact they made numerous loops to check to see if any food or... More

The resort was amazing with lots of amenities including a great fitness area, nice pools. There was a large indoor lobby area with some shopping to entertain. The food was great and service was amazing but quite pricey. Given the fact that they were a little isolated from the rest of the island. Definitely consider renting a car if you... More

Having read some previous reviews I was a little apprehensive about our upcoming vacation at the Westin Dawn Beach Hotel. Apart from the Airport traffic our week turned out to be absolutely fantastic. The service was outstanding and very professional, the room was large, very clean and comfortable. The food and beverage service was also well above average. If you... More

Physically, the hotel is decent, with a lot of "buts." Typical Westin décor, and all the usual Westin paraphernalia including Heavenly Beds and the pointy leaf soap, but the furnishings are a bit frayed around the edges, especially the carpets, and there were ants -- not entirely unexpected in an oceanside facility, but not very Westin. The lobby is spacious,... More
