Ill guess its a good hotel, but i think 120 dollars a night is expensive for sleeping. Good toilet and shower in my room, nice bed, clean and all that. Walkingdistance to sunset bar and grill which has the best soft tacos i ever eat. Try the angry shrimp taco. And very nice pina coladas.

This was my third trip to St. Maarten, but first time to book this hotel, and you can't go wrong, especially if you want a short walk to Maho Beach to watch the planes as they take off and land while enjoying your breakfast, lunch, or dinner at the Sunset Bar and Grill. The pool is very nice, the staff...

We arrived in the PM after missing our lights to MIA. Room is clean, bright, and the bathroom is enormous! Huge tub, dual sinks, and brightly illuminated... however the exhaust fan to vent the bathroom is like a 747 engine! Very loud. The one major drawback is that there is no onsite dining. If you want room service or a...

We started coming to this resort when it was Caravanserai. A couple of years ago we were considering not returning due to the condition of the property. Friends were with us and elevators did not work, pool was poor and rooms were not well cared for. In the last two years things have changed for the better. New furniture has...

Check-In was exceptional. The staff is so friendly. I was offered champagne at check-in. When I brought bottles of wine they provided me with glasses and cork-screws. I'm very picky about cleanliness and often it's hard to keep hotels on the beach clean. They nailed it!! They genuinely care how you are as a guest. Will totally come back.
