Right on the far end of Simpson Bay, not so easy to find unless you know the area. Great bar which is actually an old bus. The view of the bay with it's mega yachts along with the clear blue water is phenomenal. Food is excellent and so is the service. We used the bar and in return got sunbeds free gratis. It's a must visit for a day on the beach with all the extras you need.

Last night (January 2, 2013) my wife and I walked down the beach for a light dinner and drinks. This restaurant never disappoints. We have coconut shrimp, chorica and goada cheese , and Frenchbread with various tapenade. They were the perfect match for our appetites. The server was full of energy, had a great sense of humor and appropriately attentive. The view over Simpson Bay is unparalleled. It is definitely a place to check out while on SXM.

We vacationed in St Maarten over Christmas 2012. We tried several restaurants on the Dutch and French sides. Karakter was easily our favorite and and we ended up there twice for dinner. The restaurant is charming and unique, the location unbeatable right on Simpson bay beach. The atmosphere is great and the live music they had there was really good. The service was outstanding and all the restaurant staff were really friendly and seemed to genuinely care that each guest had a great dining experience. The food was delicious and the prices very reasonable. A vacation in St Maarten would not be complete without dining at Karakters. Highly recommended.

Good service is very rare on St. Maarten. Most of the staff at Karakter is Dutch and offer really great service. Perfect place to relax, enjoy the view and have some buckets of Amstel Bright :)
