Buford, Georgia
Reviewed 1 week ago

The hotel is some what dated but is well maintained. It is off the main road in a quiet spot overlooking the lagoon with a clear view of the Caribbean Sea. It is a family friendly hotel, with quiet separate little bungalows for added seclusion.

Dear Art A, Thank you for the very nice comments about the Summit that you posted in your review on TripAdvisor. Since we've been welcoming guests to St Maarten since 1973, we prefer to think of ourselves as "comfortably older," rather than dated, but it's true that you won't find concrete and steel, high rises or elevators, interior corridors or...

There is also a French bakery a great little bbq bar and restaurant and a market within a 2 min walk. The grounds of the Summit are located in a quiet area...

Clean, quiet, beautiful, secluded, older, comfortable, updated property. We stayed in 11A from 04/29/17 - 05/05/17. Large studio with full kitchen. Small Chinese grocery close by with good cash prices. Restaurant and Bar were not open, so most of the time we had a private pool and incredible view. Fresh coffee available all day. Great little private garden enclave when...

I have stayed at the Summit in St. Martin many times. I like the individual bungalows with kitchens as eating out all the time gets tiring. All the bungalows I've stayed in have had lovely views of the water and gardens. The pool is lovely and also has wonderful views of the water. The staff is friendly and very helpful....

Came out of season which resulted in a very quiet, relaxing stay. Rooms were neat and made up every day. Kitchenette was clean and convenient with everything needed. Beautiful view of Simpson Bay. Would stay here again.

Summit is always a good choice for a quiet resort. The rooms have been updated, look great. Staff friendly and efficient. The sheets are the crispest on the island, I didn't want to get out of bed. Easy drive to restaurants at either Maho or Cupecoy.
