The pool was very nice, staff were friendly and helpful. The beach is so close, and the also the beach bar is walking distance. The hotel is new, and that is definitely a plus. I took a picture of the hotel when the plane was landing in st martin.

I booked this hotel online and at $346.00 a night, was expecting a luxury hotel. I could not have been more wrong! Our flight got re-routed and delayed and we did not arrive until after 11:00pm. We called several times to alert them about our late arrival and were told it would not be a problem. When we checked in,...
