The Sol Hotel is an excellent choice. Oyster Pond is a bit out of the way, but it's a small island and nothing is too far away. For this location, you'll want to rent a car. The pool is large enough, warm and comfortable, and there's a well equipped grilling area adjacent to the deck. We stayed in Room 9, which has a larger and more private balcony than the other single rooms. The view from it is exactly what you see on the website. The views from the others may be partially blocked by the trees in the pool area. It's the only one that has its kitchen and sitting area outside the room on the balcony, which we usually don't like, but, because of the privacy, it works very well here. Rooms 1 through 8 have the kitchens inside. Didn't see the Room 10 suite. The kitchen is a two burner electric stovetop with no oven or microwave. Small refrigerator, toaster and coffee maker. The room is air-conditioned, which we usually don't use, but there isn't a good cross breeze, so we did use it here. King-size bed is very comfortable. Rooms 7 and 8 have more private balconies than 1 through 6, and better views. Nice grocery store and good restaurants within easy walking distance. Colette Brulin is gracious and friendly, and responds helpfully to internet requests.
Tip - The GPS in our car was a bit confusing. It's hard to find a good map of the Island, but we did find one at the Sint Maarten Park Zoo. It's well-detailed and includes hiking trails. Published by Mical Kasprowski (firstname.lastname@example.org).
