We extended 4 extra days and happily stayed there. Its off the beaten path, quiet, on a nice small beach, has a beautiful garden and swimming pool. 2 miles from the airport, toward the French side but still on Dutch side. The staff were very friendly and helpful.
We would definately go back to Ocean Club to the villas by the pool. The tower aparts were OK, but they had to move us from there to a better studio villa because the air conditioners were not working properly in the tower. They told us they are renovating very soon, with upgrades to furniture, facillities, etc.
The bar / snack bar was good, resonable priced and very good food, the MauiMaui was great. But, it closed for the summer during the week we were there. Too bad, there is not too much to walk to from there. The parking was very good, under cover, out of the sun, a BIG plus.
There is a very small convience store next door at the Saphire that had everything we needed in a hurry. The new "Market Garden" grocery store at Simpson Bay just east of the draw bridge was very nice, had everything, reasonable prices, good beer and rum prices.
The road in the area was under constrution, very narrow and bad to drive thru, but should be about finished as we speak.
Again, we will happily go back there and take our family!
