Spent two nights at Mary's before boarding Star Clipper. Couldn't have asked for a better place to stay. Great staff, good food, very nice beach ..... for a small resort, you can't go wrong.
We are very thankful to Rick for taking us to our ship on our last day. Nice entertainment on Friday night in the restaurant ...... better than we expected. Dinner was fantastic also.
My wife and I highly recommend Mary's Boon for your next stay at St. Maarten.

We stayed here for three days in Feb 2015 and stayed in a King Suite on the second floor directly facing the ocean. We loved the view and the restaurant. We had a kitchenette which was great for mixing drinks and taking down to the beach as well as some food prep though we never cooked a full meal. The room is more than adequate for our purposes.


Pros
- close to airport
- many rooms have excellent beach view
- drinks at bar are very good
- food in restaurant is excellent
- very friendly staff
- beach chairs are always available

Cons
-shower water pressure is very low and gets lower as day goes on
-shower temperature can be highly variable
- a little tricky to get to the first time
- water can be rough

Room Tip: Second floor facing ocean is best. Large patio. No elevator access though.

Recently stayed at Mary's Boon and really enjoyed the hotel & restaurant , the room was spacious and clean . Everyone there was very friendly and helpful. Ate at Tides and had delicious meals. Nice music on Friday nights. Will return again soon. Loved the nearness of the beach . They could use some new beach towels though. Pool area is small.

Room Tip: Beachfront rooms have really nice view.

My husband and I stay in the Maho area when we visit St. Martin and we love to spend some of our days lounging at Mary's Boon. From the moment we arrive we are greeted by a friendly parking attendant who helps us get our car parked out front. As we enter the restaurant and head out toward the beach area someone always offers to help us with an umbrella and chairs. They take our drink order and see to it that we are well taken care of. If you get hungry they will bring your menu and food right to your beach chair or you may dine inside the open air restaurant and lounge. We loved that this is a pet friendly area as well. We fell in love with a few well mannered puppies when we visited one day. The view and the beach are spectacular, the yachts anchor in Simpson Bay and they are absolutely gorgeous to look at. They have free Wifi as well. It's one of our favorite places on the island.

We stayed February 8-12 and loved every minute at Mary's Boon. It was our first time to Sint Maarten and if we ever go back we'll definitely stay here again. It was awesome having an ocean front room and we'd get that again. Literally 9 steps (wooden stairs) from our front door to the sand. Loved the quiet, relaxed atmosphere and loved the beach. Will definitely recommend Mary's Boon to others, too!

Room Tip: All the rooms are nice and literally just steps from the sand. I prefer the ocean front rooms but a...

we were looking for something quiet for a single night after a cruise, and this was a perfect fit. The room was beachfront, with a huge wood carved bed. The restaurant is fabulous, we had both lunch and dinner there. Beach chairs are available.

I live here in St. Maarten and needed a quiet place to stay while my home was under construction. I must say that Mary's Boon exceeded all my expectations. The staff is amazing, the food great and the service extraordinaire. I had such a nice experience the first time that I have decided to come book some rooms for my daugters up coming graduation. Months have passed since my last visit in October, yet as soon as I arrived I was greeted by each staff member by name. Ronny at reception
Not only remembered my name but each time and each room I stayed in. He remembered details of my stays, so very impressive. Elena and the rest of the staff, delightful.

The rooms are charming, each room is decorated uniquely, they have small kitchenette which make life nice for beach picnic days. The berry mojitos are the best in St. Maarten. The bartenders are all wonderful. The onion soup, the best I've ever had.

I have nothing but positive to say about this small quaint boutique resort.

The prices are wonderful. Make certain to get an ocean front room, the sound of the ocean is so relaxing and just a few steps to the bar or water.

I love this place.

Thank you for making me feel so welcome each time I come.

Thanks so much for the very kind words and happy to hear you enjoyed your visit at Mary's Boon. We are lucky to have such a great staff that really cares for its guests. As I have said before, most of us don't have near enough vacation time and we want to make sure its the best one ever and we try daily to make sure that happens for all of our guests. Mary's Boon is such a unique hotel and the best part are the guests that come back year after year. We are not always perfect but you can be sure we will try our best! Looking forward to seeing you again at your new Caribbean home away from home.
