This was our first trip to Saint Maarten and we didn't really know what to expect from Princess Heights - sometimes hotel and room photos from travel websites can be misleading... however, what we saw and experienced greatly exceeded our imagination and expectations ! Located on a hillside, on a secluded and private part of the island right on the boarder between French and Dutch sides we could overlook from the balcony of our room other hotels and villas, boats coming to the nearby marina and ships passing by far at sea. We will never forget gorgeous views of sunrises, the seclusive Dawn beach and Saint Barth's... like from a movie.. perfect! The rooms and kitchen were spacious, clean and comfortable. The staff was helpful and courteous. The room service prompt and nice. What a wonderful escape for families, couples or friends! Can't wait to come back!
