“The Place To Go”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 8, 2013

My wife, 2 sons (ages 11 & 6), and I visited Oyster Bay Resort in late July/early August. BEST FAMILY VACATION EVER! We stayed at The Spinnaker, which is a group of six condos within the Oyster Bay property, which has its own key-code security gate, infinity pool, huge patio overlooking the bay, and gas grill. Our ground-level 2BR/2BA condo was perfect for us. The bedrooms and living area were equipped with sliding screen doors and situated poolside. Even if wifey or I were inside, we could still have eyes on the boys while they were in the pool. We took full advantage of our modern amenity kitchen. OBR has several restaurants on and around the property, and we did try about 3 of them for lunch, but with two boys that are always hungry we ate most breakfast and dinners in. We stopped by Grande Marche Market on the way in to stock up on snacks, drinks, etc. I enjoyed the daily 2-for-1 happy hr for all 7 days! My wife liked the water aerobics class, on-site gym, and evening bazaars OBR had a couple of times during the week. If we ever get back to St. Maarten, this is our spot!

This was our first visit to St Maarten and decided after one week at Oyster Bay Resort that it might be our favorite island to visit. What we liked most was the friendly employees that worked there and the feeling that they loved their work. Our fourth floor room overlooked the marina. I cannot think of any one thing to complain about. We chose not to rent a car and took part of most of the activities. Saving money on food was easy to do since there was a store in walking distance, although as expected a little expensive. Like other comments that were made, people were friendly and we heard so many stories about how they come to Oyster Bay Resort year after year and even though we were newbies, we were welcomed. Also, the following week we spent another week at a different resort and decided to rent a car and discovered driving on the island was an easy task. Mullet bay beach, (near the airport) was my favorite beach of all. Bring some bread and watch and feel the fish circle your body! Great beach to snorkel.

The staff are wonderful. The new theme at the resort is how much can we save. Owners month has slid to the bottom of the list of reasons to be an owner. I will still try to go every Sept. because of all the great people who make it a great place to visit and stay.

Room Tip: Made service daily and a responsive staff. The rooms which have been upgraded are great but the olde...

We have been members at Oyster Bay for 14 years. Everyone there is like family. We come for three weeks each year, usually weeks 10, 11 & 12. in 2014 we will be there for 4 weeks. In Feb 2013 our daughter was diagnosed wirh a rare brain tumor, the 2nd time in 6 years..We had to cancel at the last minute. Ann Marie Brooks was so kind as to waive late cancellation fee..After surgery, & treatment, a benefit was held for our daughter. Josh Gold, the managing partner, kindly donated a week's stay at Oyster Bay. The benefit was a great success. Everyone at the resort has been so kind..The most beauriful place in the Carribean, with the most wonderful staff..We would not trade this for anything. Bringing our daughter & her husband for their first visit in Feb. 2014. I know it will be the first of many. Sincerely, Sue & Jeff Becker..

This resort offers nice rooms, great friendly guests to mingle with, activities, food, and an awesome pool overlooking the ocean to end each day (2 for one happy hour for sunset time)! Next to the property are several more restaurants, plus a small market so you can do your own cooking if you so choose. It was a great place to unwind and not worry about having to go elsewhere until you are ready.

Some people rent cars, I found the traffic a little too hectic to deal with. The savings from renting vs. cabbing it wasn't worth forgoing the alcohol to drive!! I luckily met a great cab driver who was available for round trip airport transportation and I was able to contact via email anytime to pre-arrange short notice or next day plans and has a stateside number if you happen to have wifi calling on your phones while traveling, Aline.Dormoy at yahoo dot com, 305-647-3141. Very convenient and helped to pick out some prime beach spots with superb service around the island.

I wouldn't worry about the distance of the hotel from the main strip. I went once, you might go twice tops, so considering that, it isn't that big of a deal. There are plenty of cool activities around the island. Concierge has some great restaurant picks for authentic French cuisine in Grand Case, got me outside my food comfort zone and was delish! You really can't go wrong with this location.

Room Tip: My room faced the marina and was nice and quiet.

There is a reason when people come, they say they're "home". The staff remembers each person and you get a hello from the man watering the plants to the lady at one of the desks in the lobby. I can't wait to return next year!

We have been coming here for four (4) years and by far this year was exceptional!!!
All of the staff are extremely attentive, helpful and most of all friendly. They all go out of their way to remember who you are and to make you stay the best that it can be. We stayed in the Mainsail bldg., first floor with the balcony facing the ocean. It was such a delight to get up and see the sunrise, so beautiful. The studio room was more than big enough with a full kitchen if you felt the need to cook during vacation, I did not. We mostly stayed on the resort. The restaurants and lounges were wonderful on the resort. The beach and pool area were always clean, the staff would get their early every morning to keep the areas looking wonderful. There is so much to say about this place, it is like being on a cruise, you can either participate with the different events that they have going on or just relax and enjoy the resort. Either way this resort will not disappoint you.
