My husband and I, and another couple stayed at this resort in July 2012. We had the best time! The water was a little choppy due to the storms at sea but the view was wonderful. The staff was always so helpful and friendly. Anything we needed they were happy to assist us with. One night one our friends had... More

My wife and I stayed at the Westin (just a mini-honeymoon) from September 17th until yesterday, September 20th, after our wedding on the 15th. The Westin is a SOLID 4-star resort. Rooms are clean, have all you need, great views, bed is comfortable, spa is excellent, etc. Just overall very,very solid. I had mentioned that we were newlyweds a week... More

My review is based on a pass we bought for one day. This pass included a room and use of all the facilities. We were on a cruise and wanted and "all inclusive" option, of sorts. Let me say before writing my review, we will be back soon to this resort for a much longer stay. Our drive to the... More

This short review is based purely on my experience at the Westin spa and with its staff. While I walked about the property and observed it, I did not on this trip stay at the Westin, although I did so a couple years ago. My review does not therefore take into account general staff service, room service or room condition.... More

Don't bother staying and wasting your hard earned money at the Westin Dawn Beach. My husband and I are travel agents. We stayed for two nights in August 2012. It was our wedding anniversary. The worst point about the hotel is the pool area. Westin blackmails the guests to pay a cabana rental fee of $24.00 per person or SUFFER... More

Apparently during the off season the staff is not friendly nor are they expected to be. Not all staff it just seemed to be the wait staff. We were misinformed about A day trip to St. Barth"s. during off season most stores are closed with the owners going on vacation and the ones that are open close from 12:30 thru... More

The hotel is located very far away from anything fun, or convenient, such as grocery stores, gas stations, non-resort restaurants, nightlife, etc... The beach, Dawn beach, is nice, and the pool is big and peacefull but without any shade except for the cabanas that cost 40$ a day to use. The whole center of the lobby where you enter is... More

Booked a last minute trip down to St. Marten and had a fun time. The hotel is secluded, and has one of the nicest beaches for a hotel on the island. It is easy to get up to Grand Case as it is a short 15 minute drive away. The food at the hotel is bland like any other Westin.... More

The resort was a wonderful retreat from the stress of everyday life for our young family. All staff members were very welcoming and continually assured all our needs were met. There was an excellent variety of food choices and the Sunday brunch was delicious! The large section of ankle-deep water in the expansive pool was a perfect play area for... More
