This hotel has a very nice view from i think all the rooms and the balconys. Right next to the marina, that also has ferry to island of St. Barth. The rooms are big with balcony. The water not always hot, but rooms are clean. There is also a very nice pool with a fantastic view! There is a beach...

I stayed for 10 days at Captain Oliver's and had a great experience. We had a very nice room which seems to have been renovated recently. I loved the all white furniture and the great balcony which had amazing views of the ocean and St Barth. The staff took care of all of our requests and questions and made us...

A piece of paradise, staff is great and very helpful. The room was clean and renovated with a huge balcony with amazing unobstructed view towards Saint Barths and the Marina. Each morning we got great coffee and a delicious breakfast.

Captain Oliver's Hotel is a landmark in Oyster Pond which is on the border between Dutch and French St Maarten. Since our flights from Canada are only available Sunday to Sunday and our timeshare is only available Saturday to Saturday, every year we have to figure out where to stay on our last night. This year my husband booked a...

I had stayed at Captain Oliver's years ago when sailing on a Mooring's bareboat charter and had fond memories of that stay, so when we needed to add a day to our timeshare vacation at the Dawn Beach Club, I booked a night at Captain Oliver's. After a week of opulence and overwelming space at the Westin condos the sparse...

This hotel exceeded my expectations! It was just perfect! It has a clean and very enjoyable hotel pool, big rooms, absolutely gorgeous views of St Barth, the ocean, the marina and it is a fraction of the price of the nearby resort/hotel which is also nice, but by far more expensive. We have the same views (including dolphins visiting!) as...

We stayed here for just one night - we spent the night and then caught the ferry over to St. Barth's the next morning where we spent the remainder of our vacation. We chose this hotel because of the good rate and primarily because it is right next door to the ferry dock so we just had to get up...

We enjoyed this hotel. It is quaint, vintage 70's. The setting is gorgeous and the price is affordable. We stayed a couple days on either end of a cruise and the laid back, relaxed attitude was perfect. Everything in our unit was working and freshly painted. The bed was comfortable, the air conditioning worked and the view from the balcony...

The place has been there for many years and it seems they have not renovated since their open. The front desk claimed to have "upgraded" my room - it's crazy to think what could have possibly been a downgrade from where I was. The hotel was not cleaned appropriately. It appears from the water damage on the furniture that the...

This wonderful place was created with a purpose. The ability to unwind and relax must have words in French but the impact is the same. We found it again this time, although the last time I was there the Captain was still with us. The property and it's people continue the traditions and it feels real good. I can agree...
