The area was always incredible but now the recovery is creating a resort that will rival any on the island. It took us 14 years of going to find oyster pond and now we can't think of any place we would rather be. The renovations at Dawn Beach Club are top of the line. The service is above and beyond. The friendliness of the staff made us feel welcome from the very first minute there. The future is bright and only getting brighter. The area seems secluded but had everything you need closeby.

The timeshare aspect of this facility is a total scam they have basically children recruiting prospective timeshare purchasers on the street with all kinds of lies and cheats stories they’re affiliated with a beach shop there that sells T-shirts and such the owner is a very pushy almost convincing he probably sell snake oil at a carnival on weekends. We consider ourselves versed in the timeshare scams but still somehow let ourselves get pulled into it with the stipulation that we were not going to stay and did not want to but nobody wanted to hear that they were intent on selling it very friendly at first but when finally they found out that they weren’t able to sell it to us they got very nasty very indignant and I thought we were going to get a left there because it is a good cab drive from downtown Phillipsburg not a walk and want to make back so you’re at their mercy to get a cab they paid for it and rightly so. Don’t let the thought of something free for nothing get you in trouble with these people.Thier sole purpose is to sell you a timeshare and roughly $60,000 plus roughly $250-$300 a month in maintenance with a 99 year lease And you can pass this weight of a financial expenses on to your children. Everyone is entitled to make a living but not the way these people do it when you’re on vacation you shouldn’t have to deal with people like this!

We stayed at Dawn Beach Club which was beautiful. Having a 3 bedroom condo with a full kitchen, 2 bathrooms, laundry room, dining room table, and living room was perfect for our group of 7. The pool was gorgeous and the private beach was stunning. Everyone who works there is so kind, always smiling and are extremely helpful. The food was delicious! The grilled & coconut shrimp were favorites in our group. The drinks were yummy. The service by the pool was superb. The security/medical staff came to help with my husband’s cut foot and they went above and beyond what we expected. We just asked if they had bandaids (the one thing I forgot to pack) and they came up, cleaned the wound, went downstairs to cut a fresh aloe leaf and showed me how to cut it and apply it to his foot. I requested the front desk to find me a masseuse and they found Nelly who came the same day I requested the massage. Nelly game me one of the best massages I’ve ever had!

We were approached in Philipsburg by a couple of representatives of the Dawn Beach Club with scratch cards where we could win big prizes. We are very familiar with the approach of time share representatives, so we said we were not interested. They were pretty insistent, and so on a lark we scratched the cards and lo-and-behold we were big winners of a free iPhone. We said that's nice, but we're not going to drive all the way there for a 90 minute presentation when we already own a condo on the island. They clearly said we only had to show up, there was no requirement of a presentation. We asked again, and they said "no presentation". We decided to go because we hadn't been to Dawn Beach since Irma and wanted to look around anyway. We showed up at the Westin, asked for our iPhone, and were told we had to sit through a 90 minute presentation. We said "no, we were told we wouldn't" and give us our iPhone or we would write a warning review on TripAdvisor. Well, here we are, no iPhone and here's the review. By the way, NEVER stay here. Dawn Beach used to be the most beautiful beach on the island but is now a swamp of sargassum seaweed as far as the eye can see. You couldn't swim, the beach is covered with seaweed, and it smells like rotten eggs. Good luck Dawn Beach Club.

I am not one to write negative reviews and will normally give a place the benefit of the doubt, however, I feel obliged to warn others of this scam. We were conned into attending a mandatory 90 minute timeshare presentation which, not only was it a waste of our time but more than exceeded the 90 minutes we were instructed we needed to commit to meaning we missed an excursion which we had already booked and paid. When we said we weren’t interested in paying the $17,000 into their scam staff tried to force us into changing our minds. Overall, staff members were very rude and under no circumstances would I stay here when returning to Sint Maarten.

Never accept anything from this hotel. it's cheating on you. It looks great and there are many good reviews, but who made them? Stay far far away, hope all the other dissatisfied couples who were also at the hotel who told they also felt cheated write their experience in here, stay far far away. We will never ever come back.

My husband and I traveled here in 2017 and we cannot wait to come back again! The staff were amazingly friendly and some of the best customer service I've ever had in the Carribean. We ate lunch on the beach every day, no waiting for a table, and beach chairs were always open. Rooms immaculately cleaned. We ventured off the property for dinner a few times and the taxis were cheap. We had trouble finding one out of Oyster Bay one night and an extremely friendly local called her friend right away to take us in his taxi. We never felt unsafe but I would not walk on the roads, especially at night, because they are very narrow.

This was my first time in Sint Maarten. The reviews led me to expect an exceptional experience. That is not what I received. The resort was at nest half occupied during my week here. The facilities are mostly in disrepair with many buildings not repaired from the hurricane. The staff was neither helpful nor friendly. A quick example, we asked for a late checkout rather than 11 AM. The answer, no and no exceptions.

Staff is incredible, especially Rossell, who kept us informed of every government pandemic rule and changes to ensure our smooth arrival, Keith and Richard on the food service staff and Rodney who does at least 4 different jobs. Also Mikiael who gave our friends a super view with the 2nd room and also is a slamming drummer in the live Reggae band! They are fast, always of good humor, and simply nice people. The food was also excellent, at their restaurant and the pool. This was our 8th visit in 10 yrs. Btw - food all over the island is world class, Big Fish, BZH right down the street, the Lolos and Ocean 82 in Grand Case. Sint Maarten remains our favorite place in the world.
