“Spectacular Setting, Beautiful Layout, Excellent Unit”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

My wife and I love this place! We first stayed here in 2008 on an Interval International timeshare exchange. We at first bought an every-other-year timeshare here, but we since have upgraded to an every-year timeshare and then to an upper floor unit in the gorgeous Mainsail area of the resort. On our most recent visit (6-13 Dec 2014) we stayed on the upper floor of the Mainsail area. Our unit has a rooftop deck and whirlpool on a wonderful terrace. Spectacular views of St. Barths are to the east, and commanding views of the eastern shore of St. Maarten and of Oyster Pond are awesome. The sales staff here is wonderful. Great dining options are nearby, including Canoa, Big Fish, Daniel's by the Sea, and in-house restaurants at Westin Dawn Beach. Indulgence by the Sea Spa is wonderful. The infinity pool is beautiful. The workout room is small but is well equipped. We always look forward to staying at this ever-evolving, well-maintained, beautiful property. This is a wonderful place!

Comfortable, pleasant, relaxing resort. Dawn Beach is excellent, on ocean and marina. Convenient to French side and Dutch side. Great marina and able to go out on snorkeling tours which are the best on the island.
Good dinning on and around the resort. Great housekeeping and management takes a very active interest in ensuring you have a pleasant visit. Some type of entertainment nightly starting around 4:30p. Rent a car...easier to get around the island.

If you want an all inclusive resort, look elsewhere. Kind of a pain to have to carry a wallet with you every time you dine, but it is what it is. The units have kitchens which is nice, but food is expensive to buy at the local grocery stores. The beach is nice, but there are always people walking up and down trying to sell you things. Great infinity pool - so lovely.

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.
