Nice quiet place to relax. You can be down the mountain and in the thick of things in less than 5 minutes! Carlos can suggest local things to do while in St Maarten and he can make arrangements for you as well! Nice walk in pool!

This place has all the charms for a great vacation. It’s situated on a hillside with spectacular views and close enough to all amenities. Our Flamboyant room was clean, cozy and well maintained. Every morning the gardener upkeeps the pool and yard. We especially like the nights

Yes, I had a rental car( Empress rent a car Brenda 721/545-3434). Let them know you are staying there.They had off street parking (included). There is about 12 to 16 steps down to pool. Depending on where your room is about about 10 to 15. Carlos & Jackie (caretakers) where very helpful.

Not far. Have a navigator go with you as there are not a lot of street signs. Allow 15-20 mins. Depends on whether you are going during cruise ship boarding or off-loading as well as commute time to or from work and day of week.

Hi Kelli, We are well and safe, Vista Al Puerto did sustain damages but we have been cleaning a repairing as much as we can. We hope to have the contractor start on needed larger repairs soon. We are hoping to have the resort up and ready as soon as possible. Sint Maarten as a whole has really been aggressive in cleaning, restoring electricity and water. We are all thankful and happy to be living day to day with a bit of normalcy... Thank you for reaching out and we apologize for not writing back sooner but we just got internet in certain areas with sporadic service...Take care and hope to see you soon!
