We have, for several years, traveled to the Bahamas for our get-aways. Also we have bought at Harbourside. Excellent place. But, changing it up some, we decide to travel to SXM. Having chosen OBBR to stay at, was a great decision. The staff is most amazing. I cannot remember all the names of them, but all were super friendly and helpful. Hyroline to help with taking care of anything that you might dream up and Sir David at the bar to make your evenings the best. Really checking out the island during the day, I highly recommend, but evenings at the resort was filled with different things to do. No reason really to grab a cab and go anywhere else. Already planning our next trip. Did not do the timeshare pitch, as we went through Interval. Heard it could be very high pressure sales by the higher up guy. Not cool on that part. But don't let that keep you away from this beautiful Island and the charming way of the people that live there

Just finished our 2nd stay, and brought friends. We will return for a 3rd time and our friends are already planning their return as well! A small resort and just so comfortable! They provide entertainment, and local vendors bring quality wares some evenings. Enough food options to never need a rental car, 5 places and a grocery so close and several others if you are game for a good mile walk each way. Be at the grocery at opening for freshly baked croissant and bread!

An excellent vacation resort. Very well placed. A beautiful infinity pool, a nice little beach, a few select restaurants nearby. Well appointed accommodation. Helpful staff. Even good timeshare reps but ruined by the tiresome little man who is the head honcho. Avoid at all costs unless you want to meet the man who thinks he's the godfather!!!

Room Tip: Marina, garden or ocean ; all excellent due to posiiton of the resort

The resort was nice, most of the staff was wonderful. I didn't like the hard sell for the time share. Overall my trip was wonderful and I would stay there again. I would definitely recommend a car to explore the island.

Room Tip: Get an ocean view room... the view is spectacular

The resort was great, always clean and with great views. Each morning while eating breakfast on my balcony, I watched frigate birds diving into the water.

The pool and hot tub were great and Dawn Beach is one of the best around. More than any other resort, Oyster Bay provides activities that pull the guests together. The Infinity Restaurant is very good and there are many other good restaurants on the island.

The staff and the entertainment were all top notch. I wouldn't hesitate to stay there again.

For those who like to be in a hot spot, with lots of restaurants and shopping near by, or nighttime action, this location would be disappointing.
It was fine for us, as we wanted time to relax and take things slow. Perfect location for that. Our balcony overlooked the ocean, with constant surf noise, that was muffled at night when we closed door. Other islands were visible from our balcony.
Pelicans made constant runs passed our balcony at dusk.
Poolside service seemed limited.
No room service.
Karaoke night was fun and the manager's party was enjoyable due to the music, free drinks and the dancing.
Rooms seem a little dated, but fresh enough. Sleep quality was good.
Sint Maarten service is different than we are used to seeing. Not very available, unless you ask. Once asked you got friendly smiles and help. More of a German style than a Mexican style.
But as a timeshare resort this one seems about normal, with less to do on resort than larger resorts, and little to do within walking distance.
So to get to shopping, other restaurants or activities you get to take a taxi or drive the narrow streets, up and down the hilly terrain.

Room Tip: Most rooms have great views since one side of the resort faces the ocean and the faces Oyster Pond

OBBR is a well managed resort. The location is great with a gorgeous beach, friendly staff & units that are clean & comfortable. I have owned here since 1995 & return year after year because it is what I expect for my get away to relax & enjoy the beach!
