Well, it's not a big and shiny overpriced resort, but still very nice and beautiful place.
The room was spacious, clean, the bed very comfortable, you have a well equipped kitchen and a large balcony. Our room was looking over the street and a restaurant with some music and people talking, but still no problem to sleep, as soon as you close your window, you can't hear a thing. Of course the rooms with ocean view are better for sure, so if I go again to St Maarten, I'll definitely choose an ocean view room in the same hotel.
Also, you can go buy some food or drinks in the closest supermarket, only 20-30 meteres from the hotel or find a nice place to eat or a bar just walking on the main street...
The staff was very friendly and helpful. There is a private beach to the hotel. It's a small beach and it's a little crowdy, but not too much. You can relax there and make some snorkeling, there is a lot of interesting fishes and if you are a snorkeling fan, it's worth seeing :)
The restaurant on the beach - Toppers - is a nice place, but a little bit overrated and overpriced. In my opinion you can find better place for the same price. But of course it's personal choice.
It's worth staying in this hotel and you'll be really pleasantly surprised!
