This hotel was over priced and offered very little other than a great location on the beach. They refer to it as renovated but its all paint indoors and outdoors. I'm sure some room have Sea Views but my room looked out on a wall between buildings. The room and hotel were very clean, the staff were very nice, the... More

Probably the sketchiest neighborhood in St Maarten, I was afraid to leave the room on my own. Rooms are small and smell moldy, and the noise from the street is super loud. On the up side, the receptionist was very nice!

The hotel was located right on Front street, right in the heart of the shopping district. Sandwiched on the other side by Boardwalk, the hotel is situated in the perfect place. Great view of the Cruise ships as they arrive/depart, located close to food/shopping/bars on the beach and the beach itself. Hotel staff was super friendly and very helpful. Hotel... More

From booking to checkout, we experienced professionalism, comfort, privacy, and charm. Our room, with its beautiful view of the sea was impeccable and everything we hoped for. This hotel is perfectly located in the heart of the city where everything you need is walking distance. The huge beach located just off the balcony was the icing on the cake. Will... More

After my first place(separate review) fell thru, I ended up here. It is right next to a casino but did not have any trouble with noise. There is a Mikkie d's within 2 min walk but does not open until 10am so no breakfast. There were other restaurants around it and on the boardwalk. within a 5 min walk they... More

First time the reviews lead us astray. I'll start with the positives: room with sea view, generous breakfast for $7. Now the negatives: our reservation "didn't exist" until I showed the email confirmation received 2 days earlier. Greeter went up to verify requested room was in order, spray can in hand, before she gave us the key. She had turned... More

This was my first trip to St. Maarten, alone. Being a lady travelling alone one must be cautious and leave no stone unturned. So prior to my arrival, I had called the hotel on several different occasions to inquire about the electrical, proximity to the beach, travel between the airport and hotel, shopping, restaurants, nightlife etc, each and every time...

Spent one night here on return from Dominica. The staff was friendly and helpful. There is easy access to beach/boardwalk which can be busy by day with cruise ship day trippers but beautifully peaceful by evening. Great place for people-watching. Older room but sufficient. Clean and quiet. We would stay here again.

Good location, right next to the beach/boardwalk - although not all of the rooms technically have a "sea view". The room was acceptable for what I paid. Disappointed that they didn't offer any food options, however, as the whole town basically shuts down at 6pm when the cruiseliners leave. In all, it was a good place to stay, although I... More

Was at the place for 15 min before checking out, this is far from what the pictures show. Plus, they could not find one of the reservation that had already been paid for weeks before arriving in St. Maarten, they had one but not mine. Even after showing the confirmation e-mail from Orbits, they still didn't believe it, but let... More
