“Great Latin Party at La Bamba”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 30, 2013

We went to LaBamba one evening while we were at St Maarten. We were told that they had a great Latin party on Tuesday nights, and it was sure true. We got there at 8PM and they were looking for people that wanted a latin dance lesson. For a mere $10 a person, we got a pretty lengthy lesson from a couple that were incredible dancers.

For the rest of the night, they played latin music, and the dance floor was full the whole time. The dance lesson taught us enough different moves for us to be able to spend the night on the dance floor. We look back at this as the most fun evening we had the whole time we were at St Maarten. Take it from this gringo - it's a great time.

“Lovely cove to chill out”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 18, 2013

Quiet, several places to get food and drinks right there. The cove is on the leeward side, and was shielded from the wind.

“Good little beach”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 9, 2013

It's basically our home beach when we stay at The Royal Palm and The Atrium. It has a lot of stuff we like right close by. Buccaneer , La Bamba, Topper's etc. Very calm water and soft sand bottom on the side by The Atrium . A little rocky on the side by Royal Palm. They have fun stuff at night too. Las Bamba has a couple parties each week and Buccaneer has the fire ball party .
