“Awesome Honeymoon!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 10, 2011

Let me start by saying...If you can Upgrade, then do so!

We exchanged in and a family member upgraded us for our honeymoon.
This resort is in a great area, for anyone really. It has amazing restaurants and bars within a short walking distance. The Resort is Clean, and well kept. The staff is very nice.

We did rent a car and it was so worth it. If you rent a car - do yourself a favor and get the GPS! We ended up lost in the mountains in the dark and it took us an hour to get back to the resort. It was an adventure though! But the next day we were at the car rental facility picking up our Garmin - which was a lifesaver!

The grounds on the hotel are cool, from the gym to the pools, and they even have grills. We cooked steaks twice and it was great to save a little money and have a delicious meal. The Stone Restaurant which is part of the resort had great food, we went there a few times. The gelato place called Ice Cream Planet was PHENOMINAL! Do try the nutella gelato - it was one of the best cups of gelato I have ever had. I went back twice during our stay just to have it again.

Aquamania was great - they offer dinner cruises (you must do the sunset one with the buffet- the food was great and rum punch and music all night long) and they have tons of activites from fishing to horseback riding.

The beach was nice there is one on the other side of the villas and another a short 3 minute walk away.

I really have nothing bad to say besides the traffic, but lets face it no matter where you go there is going to be some traffic.

Also, If you can - Take a day trip to the island of Anguilla ! The beaches are absolutely breathtaking. The people there are so friendly, I was amazed at how truly nice and considerate they were. It was definitely a highlight of our homeymoon.

All in all we loved our stay on Sint Maarten and would love to return one day ....
