We spent our New Years Eve at Earlys Escape Restaurant and Bar at the Summit Resort. Bartender Paul kept the drinks coming and the food was delicious. Early is a wonderful host and the setting overlooking the lagoon and poolside was the perfect spot to watch the fireworks from around the island. We stop at Earlys Escape almost daily when... More

My husband and I are frequent travelers to St. Maarten and on this trip we had to stay at another timeshare as opposed to our home timeshare. We ended up at The Summit and were so pleasantly surprised. The resort is older and not "fancy" but, WOW, it is wonderful! Quiet, friendly staff, clean and accommodating. Our room was perfect...

A quiet villa/apartment style rental. Very clean. No entertainment or activities at the "resort" or within walking distance. This is a great spot if you want a quiet, private accommodations and have the freedom to make your own meals. I loved the porch and the view. It was very suitable for us and we enjoyed our stay.

We recently stayed at the Summit Hotel and we were pleasantly surprised by this little hidden gem. It's tucked away in Cupecoy away from all of the hustle and bustle of St Maarten perfect for that relaxing break you deserve. The views over the lagoon are truly beautiful and we came back feeling very relaxed. Thank you Summit staff, you... More

Stayed at The Summit in June 2014 for a few days. I've chosen this property as it's pretty close to Princess Juliana International Airport (approx. 7-10 minutes by taxi, USD 10 one-way). The staff was friendly and welcoming. Stayed at Villa 2A (lower level) overlooking the swimming pool and the bay. From the terrace you can take beautiful photos at... More

The Summit is an amazing value. For a really affordable price you get an amazing view, on site restaurant with simple & tasty fare, pool, and the kindest, most friendly staff. The rooms are perfectly clean though some features such as shower knobs could use updating. Though the distance to the beach is not far, it was a bit farther... More
