This was my first solo trip ever. I was used to traveling with my family that I decided it was time for me to leave the nest and go on my first solo vacation and I happily chose St Maarten as my destination. As a future pilot, this is the best place to go. I booked my stay with Kayak... More

I am at the Summit right now. We are scheduled to be here for another 8 nights but decided yesterday to move to another hotel despite the costs. For us, this is a two week timeshare unit which we bought 20 years ago when they were first renovating the property. Also, I realize that we have not been here in... More

To this lovely, charming Caribbean hotel. We so enjoy the setting here. Lush tropical landscaping and a beautiful view of the lagoon. There is a nice pool overlooking the lagoon, with a pool bar and restaurant serving simple and tasty fare. There is free wifi, which is an added perk. There are still places on the Island that charge for... More

The Summit is the perfect stay for any occasion. The rooms are spacious (thought the bathroom is a tad bit small) and accommodating. The rooms are cleaned daily although the cleaner can do a better job. There are mirrors all over the room and as a girl that's the icing on top the cake. It's a wonderful, quiet place with... More

We stayed in the off-season and virtually had the place to ourselves. The room was okay. Shower had trouble maintaining temperature (As you stood in the water stream, the temperature would fluctuate widely). Bed was comfortable. View was quite nice. Cushioned chair at desk had a very bad funky smell to it.

I have been to St. Maarten several times and every time I choose the Summit. The staff is like family, so friendly and genuine. They go out of their way to include the guests in all activities and nightlife. Karaoke night is the best! Excellent location, walking distance to several beaches, casinos, restaurants, malls. Rooms were clean and spacious. Tropical... More

This "hotel" is actually a collection of 2-story buildings, each with a room at the top and one at the bottom, sprinkled across the hillside adjacent to the big lagoon. All are stucco, painted on the outside a cheerful Caribbean orange with green wooden trim. We had the best location just steps from the pool, with a wonderful view of... More
