“Another day in Paradise”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 14, 2013

This was my 3rd trip to St. Maarten, and I've always stayed at Rainbow Beach Club. There's no need to stay anywhere else. The property is gorgeous with amazing views, two pools and a private beach. It's a short walk to restaurants and casinos. There's a fantastic $8 breakfast just up the street. But you don't have to eat out if you don't want to because the apartment is has a fully stocked kitchen. The place is gorgeous, and the photos don't do it justice.
There's a large beach just next door called Mullet Bay, and the owners of the unit have all beach supplies you might need in their storage unit for your use. There's an amazing rib shack at Mullet bay, where we often eat lunch.
We took some trips around the island, but honestly, we were happiest just hanging out at Rainbow Beach Club. The weather on the east coast has been rough this year, so it was a huge treat just to experience 79 degrees and sunshine for a week.
Everyone in the building is super friendly especially the owners of the unit. Any questions we had were immediately answered, and they helped to point us in the direction of great restaurants and places to visit. The unit is child friendly. I brought my 4 y/o for the week. Also there's a great gym, and you can get a pass for the week.
Don't hesitate to book this rental.

My girlfriend and I spent five days in St Maarten August 2012. We selected this island since our neighbors in the States had an apartment there and we had never been.

Overall, we were beyond delighted with our stay. This building offered the R&R that we were looking for. The property is conveniently located minutes from the airport. There is building security and friendly staff. The grounds are clean and quiet. Perhaps it was the time of year we arrived - August - but we felt like we were the only ones there. The apartment we stayed in was fully renovated with new appliances, furniture, Wifi, cable, and a deck with a gorgeous view of the ocean. Quickly exploring, we realized the building comes with a private beach, this is where i would take my morning swims.

Rainbow Beach Club is walking distance to a variety of restaurants, a Tai one in particular was delicious. By car, it's easy to get anywhere… the famous beach by the foot of the airport, Zee Best for an amazing breakfast with homemade pastries, and of course the rest of the island including the french side.

We'd gladly return to the Rainbow Beach Club if we make it back to St Maarten.

Rainbow beach is located in coupecoy very near the airport. The units are very well appointed and there is everything close by. We have been going there every year for about 5 years now and can't wait to get back. The residents are friendly and the private cove offers you some great private time in the carribean. The units are well maintained and the owners are very easy to work with. Love that Jill.

This was our first trip to St. Maarten, and everything exceeded our expectations. The location is terrific, right by Mullet Bay Beach, casinos, great restaurants and grocery store. The views from the balcony are spectacular. Only a few minutes from the French-side border. Very convenient to the airport and Simpson Bay. Our condo was very well equipped with all the little details that make you feel at home. The place is immaculate! The owners live in the building and were very helpful with suggestions and recommendations. It was comforting to know that they were available for any questions, and could not have been more helpful. We thoroughly enjoyed our visit, and are looking forward to the next one! Would highly recommend.

This was our 4th trip to St Maarten and we are excited every time we stay at RBC. The view from our balcony is breathtaking at sunset and in the morning. Our accommodations are excellent with a full kitchen, washer and dryer and parking lot with 24 hr security. Located in Cupecoy, this makes it very convenient to the French or Dutch side. As a result, we can make it to Marigot in less than 30 minutes and Grand Case in 45 minutes or Phillipsburg in 30-45 minutes depending on traffic and 15 minutes to Simpson Bay. In addition, having our own private beach is a plus with a shady cave which we visited on Sat and Sun before Sandy hit the US east coast. The waves were rougher than usual but it was still an excellent way to relax after a busy week. Lucky we spent those days because by Mon the waves were huge and crashing into cave to the point where it wiped out all the sand so all the rocks were exposed. You could no longer enjoy the beach but just watch in amazement as the waves became more violent. The full moon also contributed to constant waves crashing into the wall. We had never seen it like this before but it didn't stop us from visiting other beaches we frequent. Overall, RBC meets our needs perfectly. It has a gym as well but it would be nice if you didn't have to pay extra to use it.

Room Tip: Ask for an ocean view if available. You won't be sorry.

We have been visiting St. Maarten for every year now for 6 years and this is the second time that we have stayed at Rainbow Beach Club. It is a perfect location for a family to stay because of proximity to the Airport, great restaurants, beautiful beaches, incredible shopping, and the French Side.
Rainbow Beach Club is gated with security which we really appreciate and is extremely easy to get in and out of. The staff is kind with great knowledge of things to do around town and can help getting a taxi service for you if needed, even though we do recommend renting a vehicle as the island is gorgeous and well worth just taking a ride around as much as possible.
The condo that we stayed in was breathtaking. From the moment you get up in the morning until the moment you go to bed, you have a wonderful ocean view with a nice breeze coming in off the water, and abundant sunshine. It is clean and furnished perfectly, with everything you need to cook meals, which helps when you have two little kids.
Outside the grounds are kept very well and the two pools are perfect, not to mention you are swimming on basically a cliff overlooking the ocean!!
If you are looking for a great place to stay as a family or as a couple, this place is awesome. we highly recommend it!

Room Tip: We always choose to take the ocean front.....it is well worth it, with the beautiful unobstructed vi...

My husband and I stayed at the Rainbow Beach Club in April 2012 with friends whose family owns a condominium. The Club met all of our needs and was a quiet and peaceful place to stay during our trip to Sint Maarten.

The Club is located within minutes of the airport and many restaurants and shops. It is a short drive to Baie Rouge and Marigot by car and under an hour to Philipsburg.

The Club itself is located right on the ocean and has its own private beach [and cave] with a spiral staircase leading down to it. Yes, two of the small pools were not filled during our stay, but the main pool was always in perfect condition, and we were never in the position to share it with other guests. The grounds were clean and beautifully decorated with flowers, and the views of the sunset by the beach and pool were stunning each evening.

The Club was gated and guarded by 24 hour security, so we had no safety concerns. Parking was free. I would have liked to have access to wifi, but plenty of places offered it in town.

Overall, it was the perfect home base to explore the island.

Thank you for writing your review. All three pools are now filled. All the units here are privately owned, so some come with internet and/or cable and some don't. This would be something you could check on prior to your next visit. We're pleased to hear you enjoyed your stay and hope you come back to the island soon...thank you again!
