“We will return”
Reviewed November 8, 2013

5th time to St Maarten, but 1st to Oyster Bay. Best resort we have stayed at on the island so far. Overall excellent staff very friendly, nothing too much trouble. Housekeeping very good, rooms kept clean and well stocked. Location good with several restaurants near by if you wish to venture outside OBBR, especially Big Fish a must. Activities and entertainment organised every day, but no pressure to participate. Being on border of Dutch and French side very convenient for visiting both sides of the island.
Only reason for not giving a 5 rating is some aspects of the resort are getting tired, especially our unit had doors and windows that were in need of repair to ensure good fit and locking.

Room Tip: Studios and apartments are located in blocks away from the main reception and bar/restaurant, theref...

We have been St martin many times by ship decided to stay on the island for a week first time we stayed at a resort in phillipsburg, nice place while touring the island we found Mr Busby's beach bar and wondered about the nice looking resort next door, looked the place over and decided the next trip we would stay there, we did stay there for a week and absolutely loved the place, we were back this Sept. for a week and are planing another trip there in 2014 I own a timeshare and we have traded for many locations but this is our favorite there is much to like about oyster Bay but it is the staff that makes the place even our house keeping lady she complained that we tiped her to much, just a special place.

Room Tip: over beau beau,s you get the music while sting on your balcony and the view of the bay is great,

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.
