I had to write this review because I was shocked to read what people wrote about this gem of a place. Not perfection mind you...yes there is no real beach.... and yes it is a pain to park and walk to your room.....but think of it as good exercise....but the view at sunset....the pool bar vista's of the entire island....the room size (if you pay for a one bedroom or two) is great. I agree the rooms could use some sprucing up (which they need to do soon) but they truly aren't that bad. Ask for a room facing West for the best sunset views. The pool itself with waterfall is lovely and most of the rooms are located right off the pool...very convenient. We have returned to this property twice (St. Martin 15 times) and we are going again next week..we have been around the block a few times when it comes to travel...and we think this island and this place are great. I found the staff helpful as well. Very close to the great restaurants in Simpson Bay. Also the gym is fully equipped for a great workout.
The owner needs to realize this place could be a 5 star resort if he invested in updating just a bit...but don't let this steer you away from this best kept secret.
