We had a wonderful stay at the Summit Resort Hotel! The rooms were very clean and comfortable. The front desk was also very helpful and knowledgeable when we needed recommendations on nearby restaurants and grocery stores. We felt very secure with our car in the parking lot and a guard at the entrance at all times. Each room has their... More

We absolutely loved our stay at The Summit Resort Hotel on the Dutch side of St. Maarten. This hotel was the best at providing a relaxing vacation in the most beautiful of settings. Our room looked out over the lagoon and the pool. We awoke to sunrise over the water and mountains. The view? Awesome! The buildings are brightly Caribbean... More

There were many things that we enjoyed about The Summit Resort Hotel. The view from our "premium view room" (4B) was outstanding. The size, comfort, and cleanliness of our room was very good. Relaxing on the balcony in the evening, and, sleeping at night was a pleasure due to the peaceful atmosphere. The location is good if you want to... More

This was our first time back to St. Maarten in 30 years. The Summit was perfect for a low key, laid back vacation. It has clean rooms, well furnished, and a nicely private. A very accessible pool, restaurant, and bar area. It is a simple drive to many eateries in the Cupecoy, Maho, and Simpson Bay areas, and Marigot and... More

If you are looking for a relaxing hotel to lay your head after a long day at the beach this is the place. Located away from the hustle this property is so quiet I never want to leave. The rooms are comfortable, the patios or balconies are perfect for morning coffee overlooking the lagoon or an afternoon piña colada. Many... More

This was our first time at The Summit Hotel and our 6th visit to St. Maartin. By far, we enjoyed our time more in St. Maartin because of our experience at this lovely, clean, quiet property. We had just returned from a month's sailing and this hotel was just what we needed. We appreciated the good quality towels, the exceptional... More

The resort is absolutely quality and value for money. The rooms as roomy and tidy and well appointed. The views are amazing and the location perfect. The bedding and towels are brand new. However one criticism is that there pillows are like bricks and they do not have soft ones.

We ended up at this hotel through a charity auction and had no idea what we had purchased.
