We took a crusie in April and decided to do a day pass in St Maarten. The westin offers a great deal with a room included in the price. This place was beautiful. The prices for drink and food were alittle expensive but the pool and beach made the trip worth every penny. I heard the other side of the... More

We're very loyal to Starwood properties, most of which are amazing. This one, although not "bad" could use some work. The positives: Large rooms with plenty of space, clean (minus the toilet, don't get me started), common areas are nicely decorated, spacious pool area, overall nice atmosphere inside and outside. One of the Taxi drivers who works for the hotel,... More

We enjoyed our hotel stay, on our company paid awards trip last summer (2011), although the hotel is a bit away from anywhere else you might want to visit. The hotel rooms are really nice, quiet, clean, the conference areas were large, the food good (pricey though) and the pool was truly lovely.We really, really enjoyed our dinner away from... More

We just returned from a vacation in St. Maarten and chose to stay at the Westin. We loved it! Our rooms were really large, a huge bathroom, clean, beds were yummy comfortable and renovated. The pool was gorgeous and could handle a lot of guests comfortably. We chose to wait until after spring break and there was no wait anywhere.... More

We stayed this week at the Westin Dawn. I can not tell you what a terrible service experience we had. The service was pathetic across the board. Employees were apathetic if you were lucky, rude if not and in one case threatening. I asked the bartender (bryan with a passion for soccer) to add more alcohol to a set of... More

OK... stayed in the Hotel for 11 nights, returning to the UK on 26th. The positives: Most of the staff we came across were absolutely excellent! Charming, friendly and very helpful. In particular, Melinda and Nicolas in the Ocean, plus virtually all the staff there although I don't know all their names. Max & Matias also in the restaurants, who... More

Not sure where to start. This place looks good on paper, overall clean, nice and secluded but that's as far as I go. If you want to be away from everyone on this island and trapped in one location for the entire time you are here. Even so, then this is still not your best spot to be in ST... More

Both rooms were great one looked at the Mountains and one was ocen View. Both rooms were very large, comfortable, clean and elegant. I really dont get the... More

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
