We found this place five years ago when we were trying to escape the overpopulated, over-tourist-ed, craziness of Sunset. Amazing tranquil views and great boat watching. If you are lucky to get Marty and Lori on the island working, the bar is that much more entertaining. Great people with awesome personality.....some of the best we have met on the island!!... More

Not a happy owner, too much negative conversation. Great views to ocean. Unfortunately for the owner there is little he can do to fix the green/unusable pool. That was not a good back drop.

Hay guys. Green pools are the responsibility of the resort. When that is the case>> Then we come in @ The Dream Pool Bar and make a stiff cocktail to change a mindset. ;-) Still it shouldn't happen and we wish Alegria owner and management a lot of wisdom. Caribbean greetszzz Marty More

As previous reviewers have said, don't walk through the clinical lobby of the hotel, walk between the buildings beside it and turn sharp left. You can't miss it. Great bar to sit at and banter with the owner, Marty. We popped in for a quick beer and ending up staying the whole afternoon. Lots of expats use it and the... More

This is about a two min walk from sunset, don't take the main entrance at the hotel. Walk between the tan coloured and white buildings. Truly a hidden gem

When in St. Maarten, a visit to Marty's Dream Bar is a must. Fabulous drinks and hospitality in a dreamy location! My ubcle, aunt, and I visited the Dream Bar because they had read so many great things about Marty on line. We are very glad we found the Dream. Looking forward to spending more time there.

Marty is the DREAM of the bar, being a bartender in Canada and meeting many people never have I met anyone as genuine and sincere as Marty. He makes you feel at home and the friendliest person who can also make a mean rhum punch or my favorite, a bloody mary in the morning although I'm a beer Carib guy!... More

We were recently in Anguilla for the week and when the big snowstorm hit back home, we got trapped for 4 more days so we hopped on the Ferry and stayed at the Algeria.
