Stayed at Turquoise Shell Inn 3 nights mid January and everything was perfect! A great mid price property right in the middle of the Simpson Bay area. Spotlessly clean,safe, quiet and great service by Carter and his staff right from the initial reservation till check out. Lots of great eating establishments within short walking distance.Newspaper deliverd each morning a nice touch!

I'm posting this from the Turquoise Shell to talk about the internet service here. The recent post noting erratic service didn't mention that Carter was trying to get the system worked on, which happened yesterday. So the service is better today. And some things, including the occasional electric outages, are just part of the normal island experience and life and out of the control of the best places. Anyway, this is our 4th January at the TShell, and I just wanted to endorse this place and all the friendly people of St Maarten and St Martin.

We stayed at this property with my daughter who is now attending Medical school in the island.From the moment we arrived, Carter the owner made us feel right at home,gave us small tour of the property and showed us the room which it has everything you need for your stay.TS is very well located in the middle section of Simpson Bay close to several good restaurants, little supermarkets, banks,etc.The hotel is not fancy but Carter and his staff make you feel like you are in a five star place.Thank you and keep up the good work.!!!

Our stay at Turquoise Shell Inn was fabulous! Carter, the owner, was great at making us feel right at home. He made sure we had everything we needed...books, suntan lotion, hair dryer, the best deals for area attractions... Our unit was neat and clean with all we needed to cook in our room or just keep snacks fresh. Turquoise Shell Inn is located in a great spot; right by the beach that connects to several beaches, including within walking distance to the famous 'Sunset Beach', great restaurants and not stuck in the middle of the busy Cruise boat area. We would definitely stay here again and hope to come back with friends.

My husband and I stayed here Jan 13-20 (2014) and have to say...this was one of the best stays we had. We have tried several other resorts on the Island as well. The both of us would rather stay here. Carter and his staff we fantastic. You will definitely find us here again in the future.
