Parts of the hotel were very dirty. The carpet in our room was heavily stained. Service was very slow and not friendly most of the time. Out of the way location made taxies very expensive. Constantly harrassed by sales people trying to sell timeshares every time we walked through the lobby. Many other better hotel choices on the island....particularly for... More

WE actually Bought a Timeshare and they immediatly moved us from the Flamingo at Simpson Bay for the remainder of our stay. We were given a complimentry suite that was set up the same as the timeshare we had purchased and it... More

The top 10 reasons you should NOT stay here (unless you want to spend a lot of money and receive mediocre service): This hotel requires a taxi if you go anywhere and it will cost you $30-$35 each trip. The hotel expereince was bad and I'm a Starwood member: 1. "Partial Ocean View" is viewing a parking lot. Don't fall... More

This was my first time traveling to St. Maarten and it was the first experience I have had in the Caribbean where more than half of the staff members were just plain rude and were not helpful at all. My boyfriend and I arrived at Westin Dawn Beach the day after Christmas to enjoy an 8 day vacation. Once we... More

I am a seasoned traveler and frequent SPG properties. This hotel did not live up to the SPG standards as follows: 1) Our room was upgraded to Ocean view before we arrived. When we got to the room I called the front desk and said there must be some confusion...our room was NOT ocean view as I couldn't see the... More

as a starwood gold member for years we have stayed at many Westin's . This staff was some of the worst we have encountered anywhere until the owner came from Tennessee. The front desk were rude upon checking in. No upgrades because it was sold out, although the hotel we were later told it was only half full. Looking around... More

My wife & I stayed at the Westin Dawn Beach for 6 nights & found the service, the rooms, the pool & facilities very nice. Although it initially seemed far from the "action", we realized it was a great place to be our base to explore the island, particularly the French side. It is close to the French east coast... More

I was on Trip advisor for a month prior to arriving and read all the reviews and I have to say you can make your own opinion by going. I'm a platinum with Starwood and they upgraded me to what we considered the best room in the hotel (room 1040) although the friendly person at the front desk said there... More
