“Fantastic views. Fabulous location. Top-rate property.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 18, 2013

I've been all over the Carribbean and the world, but this week I find myself staying at the Rainbow Beach Club in SMX and couldn't be more thrilled. As I write this review, I'm sitting on our private balcony of the 2 BR condo here at the RBC, looking out over the ocean (which is RIGHT THERE!) enjoying a breathtaking sunset over the water. The location is ideal--minutes drive from the airport and an easy walk to great beaches and resturants (and a big casino, if you're into that). Scanning back through some of the reviews on here, I see that a few visitors some years ago seem to have had some issues (e.g. no lights) but we've been here several days now and have seen no sign of that. The property is top-rate and the staff and the resident owners super friendly. Seems like they worked out any kinks. I know we'lll be coming back.

We been to St Maarten several times and this is one of the nicest units we have seen. We travelled with another couple and the accomodations worked out perfectly.Great location and well appointed. Loved spending time on the veranda watching boats off in the distance. Besides the small private beach, other beaches are just a short drive away.

We're pleased you enjoyed the accommodations. The views from the balcony are perfect for watching the sailboats and cruise ships go by...especially during the Heineken Regatta. Hope to see you again back on the rock! Thank you for the lovely review.

This was my 3rd trip to St. Maarten, and I've always stayed at Rainbow Beach Club. There's no need to stay anywhere else. The property is gorgeous with amazing views, two pools and a private beach. It's a short walk to restaurants and casinos. There's a fantastic $8 breakfast just up the street. But you don't have to eat out if you don't want to because the apartment is has a fully stocked kitchen. The place is gorgeous, and the photos don't do it justice.
There's a large beach just next door called Mullet Bay, and the owners of the unit have all beach supplies you might need in their storage unit for your use. There's an amazing rib shack at Mullet bay, where we often eat lunch.
We took some trips around the island, but honestly, we were happiest just hanging out at Rainbow Beach Club. The weather on the east coast has been rough this year, so it was a huge treat just to experience 79 degrees and sunshine for a week.
Everyone in the building is super friendly especially the owners of the unit. Any questions we had were immediately answered, and they helped to point us in the direction of great restaurants and places to visit. The unit is child friendly. I brought my 4 y/o for the week. Also there's a great gym, and you can get a pass for the week.
Don't hesitate to book this rental.

My girlfriend and I spent five days in St Maarten August 2012. We selected this island since our neighbors in the States had an apartment there and we had never been.

Overall, we were beyond delighted with our stay. This building offered the R&R that we were looking for. The property is conveniently located minutes from the airport. There is building security and friendly staff. The grounds are clean and quiet. Perhaps it was the time of year we arrived - August - but we felt like we were the only ones there. The apartment we stayed in was fully renovated with new appliances, furniture, Wifi, cable, and a deck with a gorgeous view of the ocean. Quickly exploring, we realized the building comes with a private beach, this is where i would take my morning swims.

Rainbow Beach Club is walking distance to a variety of restaurants, a Tai one in particular was delicious. By car, it's easy to get anywhere… the famous beach by the foot of the airport, Zee Best for an amazing breakfast with homemade pastries, and of course the rest of the island including the french side.

We'd gladly return to the Rainbow Beach Club if we make it back to St Maarten.

Rainbow beach is located in coupecoy very near the airport. The units are very well appointed and there is everything close by. We have been going there every year for about 5 years now and can't wait to get back. The residents are friendly and the private cove offers you some great private time in the carribean. The units are well maintained and the owners are very easy to work with. Love that Jill.

This was our first trip to St. Maarten, and everything exceeded our expectations. The location is terrific, right by Mullet Bay Beach, casinos, great restaurants and grocery store. The views from the balcony are spectacular. Only a few minutes from the French-side border. Very convenient to the airport and Simpson Bay. Our condo was very well equipped with all the little details that make you feel at home. The place is immaculate! The owners live in the building and were very helpful with suggestions and recommendations. It was comforting to know that they were available for any questions, and could not have been more helpful. We thoroughly enjoyed our visit, and are looking forward to the next one! Would highly recommend.

This was our 4th trip to St Maarten and we are excited every time we stay at RBC. The view from our balcony is breathtaking at sunset and in the morning. Our accommodations are excellent with a full kitchen, washer and dryer and parking lot with 24 hr security. Located in Cupecoy, this makes it very convenient to the French or Dutch side. As a result, we can make it to Marigot in less than 30 minutes and Grand Case in 45 minutes or Phillipsburg in 30-45 minutes depending on traffic and 15 minutes to Simpson Bay. In addition, having our own private beach is a plus with a shady cave which we visited on Sat and Sun before Sandy hit the US east coast. The waves were rougher than usual but it was still an excellent way to relax after a busy week. Lucky we spent those days because by Mon the waves were huge and crashing into cave to the point where it wiped out all the sand so all the rocks were exposed. You could no longer enjoy the beach but just watch in amazement as the waves became more violent. The full moon also contributed to constant waves crashing into the wall. We had never seen it like this before but it didn't stop us from visiting other beaches we frequent. Overall, RBC meets our needs perfectly. It has a gym as well but it would be nice if you didn't have to pay extra to use it.

Room Tip: Ask for an ocean view if available. You won't be sorry.
