“A little disappointed”
Reviewed April 22, 2015 for a stay in April 2015

The villa was nice, but for the price you pay for this, certain things should've been better.
The bottom sheet on my bed continually came off, they need to get sheets that fit the beds properly. The deck furniture with cushions was very nice, but the lounge chairs you lay out in were very old and uncomfortable, they need to be replaced. The beach that we thought we were going to use had nude sunbathers. We had 4 children with us. There is a sign that clearly states no nudity, but no one enforces it. This was a major disappointment. We had an absolutely beautiful beach right out our door practically that we could've used, but couldn't. If that beach is for the villa residents, then the association should enforce the rules. We had to pack everyone up and drive to a more appropriate location. The housekeeping we had each day was also not up to par, for what you pay for. We had 3 cockroaches throughout the week. It is a beautiful place, but they need to give it more TLC.

“Beyond our expectations”
Reviewed August 27, 2014 for a stay in August 2014

Thank you Farniente for a vacation to St. Maarten that we won't soon forget. The house was absolutely beautiful and met our expectations perfectly.

The only regret is that we didn't have more time to enjoy it; we stayed a week and traveled around the entire island.

The staff was very friendly, accommodating and willing to help with any questions we had. We'd certainly recommend this house to anyone looking to visit SXM with a large group.
