Returned a few days ago from visiting St. Maarten. We stayed in a time share "The Ocean Club Villa's" at Cupecoy Beach. Had a fantastic time and will go back again. Everyone was super friendly. Very relaxing vacation.
We had a huge one bedroom with a king size bed, the living room had two separate sofas. One of the sofa's pulled out to make a bed. Large deck with two chaise lounges, another chair and table that over looked the pool. Time share did charge a $50 energy bill. Thought that was strange since you had to use your door key to start the air-conditioner. (NOT CENTRAL AIR)but did cool the rooms adequately. You only received one key to the unit. People who owned at Ocean Club Villas were great. Most have been coming to St. Maarten for years and they are like one big happy famiy. They did include us and made us feel welcome.
Loved visiting all the great beaches. Cupecoy Beach was within walking distance of our timeshare and we enjoyed watching the sunset and great waves. Did not actually spend time sunbathing on Cupecoy. It is a nude beach and saw just a few men. Orient Beach had a lot of water crafts that you could rent. Lots of tourists and topless women. Baie Rouge was our favorite beach not real crowded. Great waves and beautiful blue water. We had HAPPY HOUR at Gus's and also enjoyed appetizers. You could sit under an umbrella and just enjoy the sites.
Visited Marigot on the French side and enjoyed the restaurants and great shopping. Philipsburg on the Dutch side also had great shopping, restaurants and a beach where you could see the cruise ships in the distance.
Went to "HARMONY NIGHTS" in Grand Case-entertainment in the streets and people selling all types of crafts also great food. Grand Case is also known for its great French restaurants but sorry to say we did not have time to have dinner. We were on a bus trip.
We rented a car while in St. Maarten from Summer Set Car Rental a local dealer. Super people-Mitch was great.
Will go back to St. Maarten again. LOVED IT!!!!!
