This was our first visit to St Maarten.
The hotel & staff were very accommodating especially the front desk attendant - Shonar - who went out of her way to relocate us to an Oceanview Suite. Our view was wonderful.
The hotel is remote & a car rental is a must, but actually, after a day of sight seeing, we welcomed coming "home" to the seclusion & quiet.
The beach is not big - don't expect long walks on the sand. We did feel very safe & private while on the beach.
I felt the Casino in the middle of the hotel Lobby was tacky! For a "smoke free environment" hotel this went against the Westin image/policy. Not the first thing you want to see upon arrival. The hotel gets better the closer you get to the water. The entrance/Lobby needs attention.
We enjoyed our breakfast on the patio restaurant each morning & the wait staff were always friendly.
Be sure to try the restaurants in Oyster Pond. We recommend "Big Fish" & "Canoa".
Overall I would highly recommend this hotel & throughly enjoy St Maarten.
