We have stayed at the Summit 3 times. The rooms are clean, the staff is knowledgeable and goes above and beyond to help with information. It is in a great location. A 5 minute walk to Mullet Bay, our favorite beach!

The Summit Hotel is a very good value. It is well located between Simpson Bay and Marigot so getting to really good food is only a short drive. 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...

It was amazing place, clean, quite, close to everything we needed . The bar was very welcoming and we spent many "happy" hours there. There was also an "old fashion" feel to the place. We will be back next year

The Summit Hotel is in an elevated location looking over the lagoon with a wonderful view all day long. The grounds were kept immaculate and were colorful and lush. Staff was friendly and helpful. A must stay in St. Maarten.

Having never been to St. Maarten before we were just lucky to choose The Summit in Cupecoy as our hotel. It was everything we hoped it would be and, in fact, much more. The view of the lagoon from our porch, where we enjoyed our breakfast and evening cocktails, was stunning. The room was bright and modern with a super...

Quiet and private place to stay. Great view of the lagoon. Great restaurants nearby. Mullet beach within walking distance. Having a kitchenette in the room was good for making breakfast. Cleaning staff friendly and efficient as are all the other staff. Recommended.
