We chose Captain Olivers to stay at because it adjoins the marina where we were chartering a catamaran for a week. When we checked, in the desk clerk was not at all friendly. In fact, she was rather surly as she did not have the reservation for one member of our group and was not making much of an attempt to find out what the problem was. After almost an hour to get that straightened out, the A/C in our room was not working so we were switched to another room. The hot water in the showers is a bit tricky to figure out, one of our group never did get it working but ours worked fine. Fortunately things got better from there. The Oceanside rooms are great, very spacious with a fabulous view, and were very clean and comfortable. Nice pool with plenty of lounge chairs, though the tables and palapa umbrellas are on their last leg. There is not much of a beach, and being in the marina I wonder about the water quality. The restaurant and bar have plenty of offerings, with a nice spread on the breakfast buffet. Friendly staff there, and don't miss the buffet and DJ on Saturday night. Seems the entire neighborhood comes in for this, lots of fun and dancing. So for us, as a place for before/after our sailing the location was ideal and a good value for St. Maarten. For vacationers spending all their time at the hotel, this doesn't really have much to offer unless you have a vehicle to drive around the island to better beaches and other attractions.
