This time share continues to disintegrate with maintenance non existent in the rooms, and only performed on selective common areas where visibility is highest. I was scalded there with hot water coming out of the tap at the boiling point and needed medical attention(at my costs), one out of three toilets worked, air conditioning lacked controllers or functionality, the cable...

Listen, all you people, ( as in the Dave Matthews melody) My husband and I love Sapphire.I am tired of so many bad reviews. Give this Grand Hotel a chance. It is old, but it is improving daily. It was built with great Italian marbles in all the bathrooms, floors,lobby & up half the walls. It has gone through some... More

The FANTASTIC: location, safety, balcony, view, air conditioning The GOOD: available parking, bed of average comfort, adequate towels, wifi worked at $11 a day The BAD: smaller unit than we own, lied to repeatedly for last two years by management about why we couldn't have our larger nicer unit and given no compensation, had no TV, no clock, no phone,...

I thought - it can’t really be that bad . . . Nice location, nearby beach is nice, new mall is attractive (but no customers – go before all the stores go out of business), most rooms face the ocean. Front desk staff is just plain rude. Terrible first impression. Elevators didnt work on Saturday – 6 floors is a... More

We just returned from a week in beautiful Sint Maarten and our stay at the Sapphire Beach Club Resort thru RCI. The 9 story facility was grand in it's day, but time, the Caribbean and owner/management neglect have taken a toll. The Sapphire is located on the water in Cupecoy Bay close to the French side. It is away from... More

The pool was nice the view was great-but it needs some updating. They should have more than enought owels for guests and not to be stingy about giving them out. The staff was nice for the most part. We did hear they are under new ownership and are working on being better. Dennis at the bar is cool!

Friends of ours have an ocean front villa timeshare at the resort. (using the word resort freely) Each year when we return we are hopeful that there will be improvements to the property. Yet again, when we arrived this year for our 2 week stay it was the same problems. Toilets leaked, bathroom window was broken and wouldn't close, minimal... More

This hotel doesn't even deserve a higher rating then a negative 5! I have traveled with both RCI and Sunwing Vacations in the past and CANNOT beleive they would offer such a hell hole as this resort. I booked 3 rooms through RCI and my best friends booked 1 vacation package via Sunwing. We were a party of 8 and... More

I have visited Sapphire 11 times (my parents have visited 20+ times) and I believe this past trip has been my last. Over the past 10 years, the resort has been going "downhill" due to poor management and upkeep. We are the type of family that doesn't spend much time in the room. We love to go out and explore...
