As a repeat visitor to This hotel i cannot say enough good things about the friendly and efficient staff. although the hotel has been changing to more of a Residence type of Occupancy it is still very well maintained and is exceptionally clean and Inviting.there have been some upgrades done to the rooms that are very nice. We on many nights are out quite late and are very pleased that security on the hotel grounds is quite good as there always seems to be someone patrolling no matter what hour of the night.This hotel has always been a great value for your dollars it is very conviently located between Marigot the french capitol and the Maho Area on the dutch side which has Casinos and entertainment, Baie Rouge Beach and Cupecoy beach are close by and are Beautiful Beaches.

Room Tip: The Lagoon view rooms are my choice as they are quite pleasant to have happy hour coctails after a d...

The hotel is oudated with no us power outlet and the hotel has no adapters. Away from everything. Don't stay on the french side, go for the dutch one. French side doesn't like to speak english neither show any sign of friendship. At the check out they told us to wash the dishs. Service room only once in seven days. The service room forgot to leave hand towels and we ask for but never gaves us. The pillows were very thin, we asked more but they never gaves. Empty hotel with only one pool working.

Room Tip: Stay close to the airport.

We stayed at this hotel for one night prior to leaving St. Maarten. The room was dated but clean and spacious with a large balcony including a kitchenette. The front desk staff was pleasant as well as the servers in restaurant. There was very little to do in the area although relaxing. No beach but two decent pools at this hotel and the food was ok. We really did appreciate having a place to leave our luggage as well as a room to shower in prior to our late flight. We would likely stay again for one night but we found the taxi overpriced from this hotel to the airport just for a one night stay.

As my title states this is just a room. Furniture waas all outdated and the room was musty smelling. Everything was clean. Nice sized balcony with kitchenette on the balcony. Secure bar kep the sliding glass doors closed/safety lock.
The outlets in the room need a converter.
Bathroom was spacious and had a hair dryer.
Front desk staff was pleasant.
The resort insisted upon leaving your room key at the desk if you leave the resort.
The bus schedule is not regular and do not count on this as a consistent means of transportation from this location.

Room Tip: No elevatory but would not recommend a low level room here.

I am in the hospitality business so this not a criticism but honest reveiw to assist other travelers. This was much more of a rental apartment with very standard accomodations, no frills. Be informed of a couple of things that are not mentioned on their website, you SHOULD NOT SWIM in the lagoon pictured on their website (several locals on the island and a requent visitor who moors his boat in the lagoon warned us of this). The second pool was not operational upon our visit, and there is NOT a complimentary Breakfast Buffet or second restaurant. The one pool available was refreshing, but busy. This Hotel is best used as a home base. You will definitiely need to rent a car, which you can conveniently do in the hotel lobby. Check out Laylas Beach Bar just a short way up the street a little pricey but very tasty food & drink. The room was basic. Website stated deluxe suite was for 4 adults, but... that turned out to be one kingsize and a queensize pull out sofa in the living room. The bathroom was a very small and the shower for all was located off of the "master bedroom". If you want the room cleaned you have to give your one and only room key to the front desk and request for the room to be cleaned, otherwise it will not be cleaned. Hardly anybody frequented the bar or restaurant while we were there, it was VERY quiet. So use this as a place to hang your hat at the end of your busy day at this beautiful island's beaches, stores, delicious restaurants, etc, not as a one stop destination.

As it says in the title...
It has it's own little beach on the lagoon, which is nice. I found the food to be quite good as well.
The rooms are a bit dated and are basic, but clean. I couldn't help the feeling that I was inconveniencing the staff by asking any questions, which would put me off going back.

If you have heavy bags, there was no lift or room porter available that I saw available, so a downstairs room would be better.

I had a balcony, a pleasant spot to spend an evening.
