“Great place to stay”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 7, 2013

We stayed at Jill's condo and it had everything one would need for a great vacation. Breathtaking view from inside and on the balcony. The unit was in excellent condition with all the modern amenities. The beach is private and there are three pools, two which face the sea. Jill provided everything from laundry detergent and toiletries to beach chairs, towels, and umbrellas. The building has 24hr security. I would recommend this condo to anyone considering a visit to St. Maarten. The complex is conveniently located near the airport ( you get a wonderful view from the balcony of incoming planes without the noise), has several good walkable restaurants, and is near the french border.

We stayed at the Rainbow Beach Club for a week in April. The condo was very good -- extremely well kept and clean, well appointed with full kitchen, etc. Only negative with the unit itself was that the hot tub was not heated and thus not really a hot tub. Each unit is individually owned, so make sure to check what you are getting beforehand.

The Rainbow Beach Club itself needs some work. Two of the three pools were kept clean and very nice, third one was not clean. The gardening/ groundskeeping was nice and it seemed that they are putting lot of effort in making it even better.

The buildings themselves need a paint job. The overall look of the complex is tired and not very welcoming. From the roadside the first floor has lot of boarded-up windows. It seemed that lot of work around the property was being done, hopefully the complex will improve over time. The complex has no services -- i.e. no restaurant, coffee shop, etc.

Thank you for taking the time to write your review. You are correct, these condos are all privately owned; this is not a hotel. There are no restaurants or coffee shops within the complex but there are many within walking distance. They’re in the process of opening a new gym in the roadside building; the wood around the windows that you saw should be down shortly. They did run into an issue with one of the pools; it was closed for 2 days and has been corrected. A lot of work is being done on the property and the completion of painting the buildings will continue.

Perhaps the owner could have mentioned in their listing what temperature the hot tub is set at. We hope you enjoyed your vacation overall despite the few issues you had during your stay. Thanks again!

We stayed for a week a Rainbow we rented a two bedroom ocean veiw. The room had nice decor and we where treated with complementary wine and flowers. The Staff was very nice and had 24 hour security. There was a issue with the A/C and we where offered another room but we choose not to move since the room was not to hot with the windows open. We will return.
Thank you Rainbow!

I stayed at The Rainbow Beach Club in Cupecoy….. with two girlfriends. Upon arrival I don’t know what was more stunning, the condo or the views. The condo was oceanfront and over looked one of three pools. It was beautifully decorated and had all the amenities that we could possibly ask for.

The unit is located in a secure gated complex; we felt very safe and the staff was very pleasant. There are plenty of restaurants within walking distance and others are just a short drive away. We loved the fishbowl margaritas and food at Jimbo's in Simpson Bay. We walked to breakfast at The Ocean Club...what a deal! Karaoke at Topper’s was a blast.

It was very convenient to walk down the spiral steps to get to the semi-private beach at Rainbow. Loved the cave! Also walked to Mullet Bay Beach, absolutely gorgeous! We used the chairs, umbrellas & beach towels provided by the owner.

I will definitely recommend this unit to friends and family, and will be returning soon! Love St. Maarten and The Rainbow Beach Club!!!

I've been all over the Carribbean and the world, but this week I find myself staying at the Rainbow Beach Club in SMX and couldn't be more thrilled. As I write this review, I'm sitting on our private balcony of the 2 BR condo here at the RBC, looking out over the ocean (which is RIGHT THERE!) enjoying a breathtaking sunset over the water. The location is ideal--minutes drive from the airport and an easy walk to great beaches and resturants (and a big casino, if you're into that). Scanning back through some of the reviews on here, I see that a few visitors some years ago seem to have had some issues (e.g. no lights) but we've been here several days now and have seen no sign of that. The property is top-rate and the staff and the resident owners super friendly. Seems like they worked out any kinks. I know we'lll be coming back.

We been to St Maarten several times and this is one of the nicest units we have seen. We travelled with another couple and the accomodations worked out perfectly.Great location and well appointed. Loved spending time on the veranda watching boats off in the distance. Besides the small private beach, other beaches are just a short drive away.

We're pleased you enjoyed the accommodations. The views from the balcony are perfect for watching the sailboats and cruise ships go by...especially during the Heineken Regatta. Hope to see you again back on the rock! Thank you for the lovely review.

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.
