We had a wonderful vacation experience at the Hotel Mercure. The accommodations and hospitality services were excellent and offered significant value for each vacation dollar. The staff was delightful. Each staff member we met was welcoming, friendly, and extremely helpful. The fact that everyone there spoke fluent English was wonderful. The hotel arranged for or offered their own personnel to drive us to other St. Maarten restaurants and attractions. It was always a pleasure to be motored about by Fareed, who was quick to offer advice and suggestions on where to go on the island.. The property owner, Arbia Baki, was always on hand to ensure that everything ran smoothly. His gracious greetings and inquiries as to whether everything was to our liking made us feel welcome and well cared for. I will return to the Hotel Mercure on my next trip to St. Maarten.
