I stayed here with a buddy for 2 nights. We paid about $110 per night and that seemed reasonable. The location is great. There are plenty of good restaurants within a few minute walk. The pool area has nice views of the harbor and beyond. Our room had a nice little kitchenette and the toilet was separate from the shower... More

I decided to write another review because those guys working at the hotel need a very strong encouragement for the great job they are doing. I came back nothing but for the service they are offering. It was regrettable to hear/read some complaints especially considering the fact that if you chose this hotel it would be for the great secluded... More

This was our second time staying here and we had no issues whatsoever. It was a very nice and relaxing stay. We had an ocean view room again, definitely the way to go b/c you have a private lanai where you can enjoy your morning coffee watching the boats. The view of the bay and marina is amazing and serene.... More

We arrived by rental car (hard to locate) after landing at SXM on AA. Crossed over to the French side to reach Captain Oliver's (gendarmerie with rifle stopped us to make sure seat belts were fastened, etc). Difficult to park due to lack of space. Room 101 has magnificent view but AC was not working. Dessi offered to switch to... More

Great spot located next to the ferry to St-Barts in Oyster Pond. Large pool and sundeck. A few restaurants close by. Our children had their own room, each with their own bed. Only negative is not much dishware etc. in the kitchen. Only stayed one night before accessing our shared villa up the road.

We needed an inexpensive ($158) one night stay in St Marten and our travel agent found this hotel. We were apprehensive based on some of the reviews on Trip Advisor but the hotel was fine. The staff were very friendly and the room was very nice. Hot water was a bit sparse but it must depend on the time of... More

Captain Oliver's hotel is a fine resort with all the basic amenities one would need for a short vacation. It does not offer a beach. I took a cab ride to Orient beach for the day, which was a fantastic beach. Captain Oliver's is aged, but kept in good shape. It offers restaurants and pubs right on the bay. I... More

Overpriced ! We have been travelling For three months and this hotel should loose its star rating compared to other hotels which are cheaper and which provide breakfasts. Very disappointed for what we paid. Yes the room was spacious, but outdated and the Marina view which we paid for was non-existent. King bed was comfy but showers were cold. The... More
