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

We have spent a week at the Summit for our 25th anniversary. We were very pleased with our stay. We were in room 4b which has a gorgeous view. The room was clean and spacious. The bathroom clean with a nice and powerful shower. Housekeeping was excellent. If you would like to stay in a typical Caribbean place with a... More

The friendly staff. The quiet location. The beautiful views. What's not to love about this place? This was our second stay at the hotel and we enjoyed every moment there. We were in room 4B, located in the far corner of the property, overlooking the lagoon. The view is really unbeatable. And the sunrise coming over the mountain in the... More

On Friday October 10, 2014 we checked in to the Summit Hotel. We were given our pool towels, remote control for the tv and cable and our room key. We were shown to our room which was overlooking the lagoon and the French side of the Island. We saw that the restaurant was closed but that was not a problem... More

I stayed here in July while visiting my boyfriend studying at the medical school next door. This was the perfect place! It was quiet, comfortable, and relaxing. It is worth the few extra dollars you pay to get a water view, as well! I could sit on that balcony all day every day with a view like that! The staff... More

Just returned from an 8 day stay at the Summit Hotel. Although slightly dated, we found the accomadations very good. It is convenient to local shopping and a five minute drive at best from the airport. The grounds are nice, rooms are very clean and the pool well maintained.
