I've been going to St. Maarten for almost 20 years and I love Oyster Bay Beach Resort. The location is ideal - close to Phillipsburg and convenient to the French side. Dawn Beach is beautiful and the pool is gorgeous with a lovely view of St. Barth's. The staff is always friendly and helpful and can recommend some excellent tours. We especially enjoy Captain Alan's 6 hour 3-island snorkeling trip. There are great restaurants within a short drive of the resort as well as Daniel's which you can walk to. I will keep coming back to Oyster Bay Beach Resort every winter!
