This was my first solo trip ever. I was used to traveling with my family that I decided it was time for me to leave the nest and go on my first solo vacation and I happily chose St Maarten as my destination. As a future pilot, this is the best place to go. I booked my stay with Kayak and wasn't expecting much from a 3 star hotel. However when I arrived at the hotel I was in shock. For a little 3 star place it looked great. I wasn't in need of much so it suited my needs perfectly. The view was amazing and the food was great. Had breakfast every morning. One time I woke up a bit later than usual but the woman that was working the kitchen had no problem making some french toast for me.
