We’ve been visiting St. Maarten and and off for quite some time.....first as a single mom with two teenagers and then ....now with my wonderful husband. We had not been to the island since Hurricane Irma led to a cancelled trip.....somehow our 10th anniversary was upon us in September 2019 and we had the chance to spend 12 days at the Villas to celebrate. We had never been to the island in September and were concerned about weather. Yes it was hot but we lucked out.....and all the more reason to be in that wonderful ocean water more often. This was the first time we stayed in the Villas...... many previous trips had us in various buildings at SBBR....also at several of the other Dutch side timeshares..... Royal Palm, Royal Islander, OBBR . We just LOVED it at the Villas. First of all, before arrival Jose helped us coordinate our stay so we could be in the same unit the entire time. We SO appreciated that. I asked him for a one bedroom condo on a high floor and we got it...top floor #7. The units are BIG. They also have big balconies. There is a door inside the unit which would open to the “unit” next door if you had a two bedroom condo.....otherwise it is a Lockoff studio which is also a good size. The balconies are great with a vast panoramic view of ocean, lagoon, and St. Maarten’s hilly terrain. I must note that everyone at the resort was gracious and friendly...from reception, to house keeping, to maintenance, to restaurant and beach staff. This was the first time we did not rent a car for our stay. We did rent for one full day, arranged in the Villas lobby, and did a round the island drive to see how things were. Otherwise, we very comfortably walked to many surrounding restaurants (Buccaneer Beach bar, the Greenhouse, Lees, Toppers for the biggest lobster EVER). We dined several evenings in the restaurants at the resort and were very pleased with the various ambiance, cuisine options available on site. Similarly there is nothing more convenient than booking water excursions right on site and departing from Aqua Mania’s dock right in front of the Villas and marina buildings. The resort was in great shape....while it was sad to see only the foundations of some of the resort buildings lost to the hurricane, the grounds were nicely landscaped and well maintained in general. The Villas building also hosts a large, up to date gym facility. In summary this was an absolutely terrific stay!!!!! If it is safe to travel this fall I have a big milestone birthday coming in early October and a unit reserved at the Villas - sure hope we can be there again.

This has been my third time in Sint Maarten, first time at a resort. The rooms are very clean and spacious. The staff is very friendly and helpful. There's a supermarket down the road by Burger King. There's plenty of restaurants and bars that are walking distance. There's a casino that's across the street. I would definitely come back.

The room has a view of the entire bay. You overlook anchored sail boats pointing into the wind of course. The building is less than fifty feet from the ocean adding to the close up view. There is a full kitchen with all the appliances you will ever need if you wanted to cook meals in the room, as there are very few all inclusive's on the island. The property is located just steps away from many great bars and restaurants so you can have alcoholic beverages and walk back to the villa without driving. The villa provides a free shuttle to many close by restaurants and bars.There are many security guards and controlled parking making us feel very safe. A car rental is a good idea as there are many places to explore such as Phillipsburg, Orient beach and Marigot as well as grocery store visits as needed. This is a great alternative to the all inclusive vacations as you feel freedom to roam the island.

We went down to get away, relax and unwind. We got all that and more. Ended up getting engaged and this year we will go back for honeymoon or to get married. The location was perfect for what we wanted and the shuttle made getting around a breeze. The view on the balcony spectacular. The room comfortable and clean and the one minor issue we had was fixed promptly. The beach and pool areas were clean with friendly staff to assist with what was needed, and the next day we didn’t even have to ask. Overall all staff were friendly and helpful. The food was good in the area and on the resort but we enjoyed Replay the best most nights. Shout out to Jonesy who was great each visit. Nothing but great things to say and we will return in November with family and friends to celebrate.
