“Scenic spot”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 2, 2015 NEW

Beautiful bay right on the border of the Dutch and French sides. Other than some of the beaches, probably the most scenic area on the island.

“Nice Place to Stay”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 1, 2015 NEW

The best thing about staying at Oyster Bay Resort is that is is away from all of the hectic rest of the Dutch side. The pool is nice, the view nice, and everybody is friendly. When we were there, the beach was covered in seaweed as well as the water. Dawn Beach was the worst snorkeling I have ever done because of the seaweed. There is a reef there but the seaweed ruined the experience. However, charters leave from the bay like Captain Alan's. He is highly recommended. The French side is right there and is much less populated. Orient Beach is a short drive as is the whole Island.

“Westin, Dawn Beach”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 24, 2015

Hotel is just at the border with the French side. Good Pizza just past Oyster Pond- Mamas Pizza. Takes cash only but the pizza is better than the Island Pizza, on the Dutch side of Oyster Pond
For local Creole food, The closest to Westin, Dawn beach is at Orleans, French St.Martin, right off the Main Rd.,the road just at the gas station; named Yvette's. Cash only - but the cuisine is great. portions are generous.
On the Dutch Side, on Bush Road, near the Grand Marche supermarket, is the Jerk (Jerk and Roti Hut); great local food.
Excellent Ox-tail.

“Beautiful Resort”

Rooms are immaculate. Every thing you need including pots, pans, dishwasher, shampoo, etc. is there at your finger tips. The infinity pool is amazing. The Monday night welcome party offers good liquor and great wines.
