Excellent resort , fantastic beach

Posted 13-Apr-2014
We had a great experience . Location was approx 15 mins from airport; staff was accommodating and courteous; room was fantastic. Was fortunate to stay in room that was renovated . Although the building was not ocean front , you could see the ocean and the sunsets were amazing ! The supermarkets and resturants are in walking distance (Dutch side) . I didnot rent a car but took a taxi to get around . All I can say is that the resort , staff and location is fantastic .

Great value and location

Posted 13-Apr-2014
We thoroughly enjoyed our 5 nights in a studio here. Really spacious room with nice patio and kitchen areas. Decor is not fancy and a bit outdated but this didn't bother us. Pool areas are really nice and all the restaurants we tried were great. Short walk to main road where multiple food and nightlife options await!

Great Location, Service and Amenities need help

Posted 1-Apr-2014
Pros: Close to airport (SXM). Walking distance to great beaches, bars and restaurants.
Cons: The Staff! It was hard to get a smile out of anyone, from desk staff to bell hop! Older buildings need updating. Better cleaning staff
Location: Nice beach and pools. At the hotel, Alexander's serves a great lunch. Next to hotel is the Buccaneer and Greenhouse beach bars. Both have good food.
We stayed here for three nights at the start of our two week trip to the island and one night at the end. The beginning room was in a great location near the beach. However the room was very dated and the appliances were old and only partly worked. We were told that this building (Marina) will be the next to be updated. At the end of the trip, we were put in one of the 'B' buildings on the hill. We were checked into a room that had not been cleaned and when they finally got around to cleaning it, it was left with trash in trashcans, leftovers in refrigerator and the bed looked like it had been made but not cleaned. The staff seemed put out that we asked for a different room or this room to be properly cleaned. Not a great way to leave the beautiful island of Sint Maarteen.

Spacious rooms, good rates on a crowded site.

Posted 31-Mar-2014
Location: Relatively close to a busy shopping & restaurant area, but too far away for safe and comfortable walking.
We needed a reasonable room for one night near the airport (SXM). The room was exceptionally large and well furnished. The resort was clean and well maintained, but building were close together. The site was hilly, but the resort would provide a ride (on call) to get down to the waterfront/restaurant area, or to the lobby, etc. We received good value for our short stay, but would not want to spend a week there because of the sense of being crowded.

Commercialize Resort

Posted 3-Mar-2014
Pros: Nice pillows.
Cons: The décor was terrible.
Location: Buccaneer bar was cool.
Requested a renovated room and received an old room. The elevator was broken and I have arthritis so it was a pain. Not work 200 a night, maybe 115 max. A bunch of old people, not for the young or 30's. Had to wash your own dishes or you got charged, toilet quit working. Shower was dirty and had hair in the drain.

Our stay at Simpson Bay Resort

Posted 1-Mar-2014
Pros: Beautiful views overlooking the water. Watching the boats go in & out.
Cons: Some rooms need updating and upkeep.
Location: There are many resturants nearby, within walking distance. There is a well stocked food store on the premise. There is a casino on the grounds.
Our overall experience was wonderful. There were 5 pools available. None were ever full to capacity with people.
