We were an RCI exchange and our unit was very large with two bedrooms and two bathrooms. I did request a sleep six but the unit was alot better and bigger than I... More

Years ago we had a timeshare. Had to give up because the terrible shape and danger of elevators not working The rooms were musty smelling and I ended up cleaning myself. Just has gone very down hill from our original trip. Many new and updated places to stay on the island

We have owned a timeshare here for 15 years (every other year) and each time we come here, things are a little worse. Not sure how much worse it can get. We stayed here from March 7-14. When we arrived, we were told the unit we own was not available, so they gave us another equivalent unit. The key machine... More

Everything here is showing signs of wear and doesn't seem to be getting fixed. Restaurant was closed the entire two weeks we were there and the salon has closed. Beach towels are ratty, refrigerators don't work and the list goes on.

This hotel is AWFUL! Do not stay here! The staff try really hard to keep this place clean, but they can only do so much with the little they are given. Tiles are cracked, the room smelled musty. The lobby smelled like sewer for the entire two weeks we stayed there. Only 1 elevator worked. The "hot" more like tepid... More

In its day, the Sapphire was one of the best places to stay on the Dutch side. Sorry to say those days are long gone. Last year we were told the old French owner was selling to a new French couple and things were going to change. NOT. The old owner pulled shenanigans and pulled the plug on the deal... More

I was hoping to write a review with information newly discovered during our recent stay. Let me start by saying that we own 2 weeks since early 90's in building 3 and in the Oceanside Villa. We were absolutely pleased with our accommodations. The rooms were clean, daily towels and very helpful maid staff. Yes our coffee pot didn't work.... More

We stayed the first week of February 2015 at the Sapphire Beach Club to find they had no hot water, no coffee cups,no screens on the windows, refrig did not work and a vanity door laying on the floor. The room smelled of mold and if you ran the air conditioner it smelled worse. Open the windows and you get... More

This was my first time to Sapphire. I don't normally write reviews but there has been so many bad reviews I thought I should add my humble opinion. Good Stuff: The location of Sapphire was perfect for us, not too far off the beaten path but not right in the middle of constant activity either. The studio w half kitchen... More
