We visited after doing a snorkeling tour in April. We were very happy with our visit. The view was beautiful, service was good, and the food was delicious. Food on St Martin can be expensive but we found Mr Busby's was good value.

I don't eat rice, bread, etc. and I was fine. Seafood and salads were staples. I did eat the fries with mayo, though.
