We stayed Sunday December 29- January 5 2014. I have been all over the carribean including Barbados, Aruba, Cayman Islands and many islands in between.

We stayed at Oyster Bay January 4, 2014 though January 11, 2014 and had an amazing time. The rooms were very clean and spacious. I enjoyed the brightly colored beach themed room. The staff was friendly was always willing to help. Most everyone we met (guests) owned a timeshare at the resort and return year after year. The pool was...

We've been going to Oyster Bay Beach Resort since the early days of its creation in 1992. We always loved it, but it has only gotten better and better over the years. Having started with one flex week every other year, we gradually "purchased" our way to two weeks every year. For nothing in the world would I miss going...

We returned to OBBR this December and were glad that front desk had drastically changed their attitude. This time around, they were friendly and accommodating with all our requests. It was quite pleasant dealing with them. The manager Brenda was especially helpful and Caity was so sweet and pleasant. This is what front desk people should be like. The rooms...

We happened to stay at the Oyster Bay Beach Resort on owners week. There was many activities for the owners, we didn't participate in any (Costume party, Cocktail parties, Karaoke, Island tour, etc). Overall the "resort" was dated and tired. Our unit was on the 3rd floor, with no elevators, but many flights of steps up the building many times/day....

I decided to book this property after reading a lot of good reviews and I would say a lot of comments are actually true. However, I usually try to evaluate value for the money and thus compelled to write a review here. I think our overall experience was positive but as mentioned in a number of reviews, the hotel is...

My husband and I walked into the lobby of OBBR in October 2006 and found our Home Away From Home. We had been to a multitude of resorts throughout the Caribbean and so many were either too big, too small, too busy, too quiet, too something, that we had not found a place that we felt we wanted to return...

Don't be fooled by the Internet pics and description. This resort is very outdated, poorly maintained, pool area was old and full of plastic cups, straws, and other litter. We were not given the rooms promised and were told to 'forget about the rooms and just enjoy our vacation'. Very rude and condescending. Management promised much and delivered nothing. I...

My mom and I went to St Maarten from 11/29/13 to 12/6/13 for the first time and stayed at Oyster Bay Beach Resort. We were pleased with the location and how secluded it seems. We enjoyed that our room was close to the Dawn Beach as well as restuarants (Beau Beau's, Busby's beach bar, etc) and marina store nearby. We...
