We were unsure about the Summit, thinking it might be just too quiet in the Cupecoy area, but we selected it based on price and location. We were pleased with the outcome! It's a great rate for the very decent room you get. We had a second floor water-view king bed room. The room had everything we needed: a well... More

We are owners of 2 weeks in this little resort. Even if we didnt own, we would come back each year. The staff is super friendly, and treats us as part of their family. The pool is as fabulous as the view. The beds are a tad uncomfortable but the rest of the unit is great. Flat screen tv, full... More

We stayed here for one night when we arrived in St. Maarten. Our room was clean and had a cute little porch with a beautiful view. Also, the property is landscaped nicely with jungle like pathways. There was always someone working on the gardens. The pool was nice. My only gripe was that there was not a lot of staff... More

Wonderful quiet resort with a real Caribbean feel to it. Not glitzy or showy in any way, but certainly 5* for atmosphere and hill top location. Rooms are well appointed in 2 storey individual buildings and each with a balcony having wonderful views over the lagoon. Staff are very friendly, courteous and with helpful tips on things to do and... More

Great hotel with a "homey" feel. Property has nicely landscaped walkways, with two-story units, each with one room downstairs and one upstairs. I paid the extra for a Premium Water view, and it was magnificent. Balcony was overlooking the pool and Simpson Bay, and was a perfect spot to enjoy a cup of coffee at sunrise and watch the mountains... More
