What a great place! Right on the beach and there is also a pool. We thought the proximity to the airport might be a slight problem but you only hear the planes very fleetingly as they whiz past! The staff are all incredibly friendly and it's just like one big happy family. Take mosquito repellant though.

Sorry to see someone had a bad experience. Mary's Boon is a classic old SXM beach front hotel with a great history. We've been coming here for over 20 years for breakfast and always loved it. We had never had dinner here. We were just milling around the awesome beach bar having a few cocktails when we struck up a conversation with the restaurant manager. He offered to set us up a special beach table for a family dinner which we took him up on doe the next night. Unfortunately the wind kicked up and the beach dining option seemed a bad idea, fortunately the Tides staff planned ahead and set us up two table, one on the beach ad one in the restaurant. What a great group, heads up and wanting to get it right. It gets even better, the food was outstandingr, the service was top notch and the overall experience wonderful. Go try it, I don't see this current staff dropping the ball, you will have a great experience. On an Island that is very, very long on great dining options the Tides is right in there with the old master.

We had a delightful dinner at Mary's Boon, so decided to try it for lunch. No one came to take our order so I went into the bar and asked if anyone was taking care of luncheon orders in the dinning room. I was informed that the girl in the bar would be in shortly. about 10 minutes later she appeared and took our order. About 10 minutes later our drinks arrived. Other people began to gather in the dining room, and once they were seated their meals arrived. They had ordered ahead and and asked to have it ready at a certain time.After we had been sitting there for an hour, I asked the hostess if she would let us know the cost of our drinks, as we were not waiting any longer. She said she would be with us in a moment but continued to serve other diners. Finally, we put some bills under our glasses and left. Moral of the story! If you plan to eat lunch there, you had better call in you order before hand.

Did not stay at hotel. Restaurant experience was terrible. Problem with meals not corrected and place was empty, I can see why.
Waitress did her best to fix a bad situation, but mgmt. did not. Will Never go back.
