“1st time in st. Marteen ”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed 3 days ago NEW

We stayed at the resort from April 11th to the 18th . We had ages from 29 to 62 in the group . The oldest couple have been owners for a couple of years. The staff was very good . We were a party of 7. We had (2) 2 bedroom units. We were in room 2532. Ask for this room ! Great Ocean view . Both bedrooms have king size beds and bathrooms, plenty of space . Grounds crew does a great job place was pretty much spotless the whole week . Beds were comfy, pool area is nice and even though the pool isn't the biggest its long so theres plenty of room. The pool party is a must go . The slight Breeze off the ocean that this place gets keeps it a nice 86 degrees not a to hot 86. Drinks were great all week . Only complaint about the pool was the lack of music going everyday. House keeping was there everyday if you wanted them to be. There are plenty of places to eat in This area including 2 restaurants onsite. I will review the places that i went to separately. The bar area is nice with tvs and the seating . There's a nice open court yard between the bar and the front desk. There's a small onsite store at the marina that has some things there's also a store just outside the gates with more stuff . If you leave dont fall for the 2 guys just outside the gate that want you to scratch a ticket to see if you won a prize (3) 7's wins you a chance at 1000 bucks . Lol No one ever gets the (3) 7's . But really someone you are with is going to get the (3) 7's it's a tour next door total waste of time. Driving around isn't as bad as I was thinking . It's pretty much 40mph around the whole island drive defensively and your fine. You should do the beach party on 1 day. It's worth the cost if you enjoy a few drinks while on the beach . They take you by bus so you can parry without worrying about the drive back it's a short trip and your there for the day with lunch and open bar. The 2 things that cost the most! Drinks and all food.

This place is our home away from home, and it is the most comfortable place on the island. It is on the Dutch side (on Oyster Pond) .. but barely. The units are well maintained and beautiful. The bar, and restaurants are well stocked, and the food is always right on !!

Room Tip: The ocean front and pond front are best, but they are all very comfortable.

you have to pay for wifi...for the week it is $51 and the last day when i wanted to check flight it was turned off. too busy to go and complain so just left. the beach is covered with dirty brown sea weed that they tried to clean up but to no avail...you could./t get into the water because of it.
the condo itself was nice and people were very friendly. but they charge you $12 a day for electric power...

Room Tip: ask for ocean view

Loved it. Perfect location on the water. Great spots all around it for sunbathing, eating, enjoying a good time with friends. Having an open patio door all night listening to the ocean, unbeatable. Highly recommend.

After having a confirmed reservation for months through Interval plus calling the resort in advance and asking to be placed on a list for an ocean view room, we were given a room which faced a wall 30 feet away looking out the kitchen and dining room and another wall 50 feet away looking out the living room and bedroom windows. To make matters even worse, directly below our balcony was the resort's junk yard (10 feet below us). It contained broken appliances and air conditioning units, broken furniture and blinds, rusted tools, etc. Awful, just awful. When we asked to be moved, we were told that the resort was booked and they didn't have another unit to move us to. Two days later, another complaint resulted in us being offered either of two other units, one of which (with a partial view) we chose. However, this unit needed several repairs - but it was worth it just to be able to sit on our balcony and not have to look at a wall directly across from us or a junk yard below us.

All of that aside, we found the hotel staff in the lobby to be friendly and helpful but the wait staff at the Infinity restaurant and Beau Beau's to be very reserved, sometimes bordering on unfriendly. The resort itself was reasonably well kept and clean. However, each time we showered in both of the units we were in, we left black footprints on the bottom of the tub - we assume from walking barefoot on dirty floors.

Overall our experience at OBBR put a real damper on a trip that we had planned for nearly two years. Would we stay there again? Nope.

This is our second trip there. Oyster Bay offers great accomodations; everything was clean, in order, and comfortable. Did not use many hotel facilities because we prefer to rent a car and travel to many of the other beaches. The resort is not centrally located, but we have traveled around island, but it is great if you rent a car; parking and security are great.

So this year, we decided to leave all the kids and other relatives behind. Just a week away for the Mrs and me. What a fantastic time we had! The room had a nice view of Dawn Beach. The service was fantastic, as it has been every year.

Only gotcha was that our refrigerator had some kind of loose plastic cover in the freezer, and it would rattle loudly when the compressor engaged. Maintenance was called, but it was not fixed.
