My husband and I simply loved our 4-night stay here. The hotel pool is tremendous, the beach was fabulous, the breakfast (the only meal we ate there) was lavish and service unexpectedly (for a buffet) good. Our room was immaculate and spacious, with a small balcony overlooking the pool (and beach beyond). I'd go back in a minute!

Let me start by saying that I rarely review a hotel after my vacation is over, however I have to warn others about the Westin Dawn Beach. The staff is flat out rude; with the exception of one or two of the front desk representatives, the remainder are unaccomodating. I hope you do not plan on spending any time on... More

We booked ocean front and they gave us pool view on the 1st floor and said this was how this room is catagoried at their hotel.

As many people have said, the hotel is away from the night life. It is 30 minutes away from the city, the airport, Grand Case, Marigot and some fine beaches on the caribean side of the island. For a relaxing vacation not looking for complication, that may be a good thing. With that said, there are things to do on... More

Nice looking property but remote from most of anything. Shower in the room was like a bathtub, it would fill up will showering and then slowly drain after stepping out. On the final day, there was even water under the carpet outside the front door. Wi-fi is poor; it cycles on for about 5 minutes and then cuts off; have... More

Let me start by stating that to take time to write a review is normally not in my nature but I feel strongly compelled. From the moment we arrived the front entrance was lack luster and far from inviting, it was difficult to decifer it from being a service entrance or employee entrance. At that moment I had a bad...

We returned just last night and I had to write this review right away. As I had read on other boards, this is easily the ugliest hotel on the island. We were in a beautiful ocean-front room and have no complaints about anything behind that door. However, the carpet in the hallways, at least on the first floor, were deplorable.... More

We just returned from 3 nights at the Westin on Dawn Beach. The staff members could not have been nicer (problem with the battery pack so we couldn't unlock our door). They not only fixed the problem right away, but called several hours later to follow up to see if there was anything else they could do to make our... More

Most of the reviews I read were bit Harsh. If this was a a 3 star hotel I would of rated above average, please keep this in mind. The staff was very friendly and the service was good. The Casino in the lobby area did not bother me. The food was EXCELLENT and was cheaper than the average restaurant in... More

Although the Westin Hotel Property is quite beautiful there are a few improvements that need to be made.1) The Hotel has 10 cabanas that are rented at a cost of $80 per day. Overpriced and under rented. No one wants to pay that kind of money for a cabana. Luckily there are a few palm trees to provide shade to... More
