I went to relax and I did just that. Great excursions and wonderful places to eat. Snorkeling was good and people were very friendly, Plenty to do or just sit around and relax.

Nice hotel, plenty of parking space, friendly staff, clean and spacious rooms, close to all kind of restaurants, close to the beach. It's a wonderful hotel and a good location close to the airport too.

Everything was perfect except the bathroom... Even though is very modern and clean there was a weird smell coming out of the bathroom.. Aside from that I give then a 10!

Simpson Bay Resort

Posted 1-Jul-2014
Pros: Location, staff, beach, grocery and restaurants on the grounds, spacious rooms.
Cons: As I mentioned, it's being renovated.
Location: Bon Appetite - the best restaurant nearby. We were told that they have a new chef, and he is exquisite, per our opinion; staff is great, too.
We stayed in Marina building which is scheduled for renovation in January 2015. Although our rooms were a little outdated, we found them quite comfortable, spacious, and clean. Certainly, floor tiles needs to be renovated as well as bathroom and closet (especially, doors), but furniture is comfortable, bed is good, two ceiling fans along with air conditioner make your stay pleasant. Marina building is located next to the beach (3 mins walking distance), and it makes it even more comfortable, so we didn't pay much attention on what to be renovated. During presentation, we saw different buildings (all of them are named by local flowers) with renovated rooms, and it looks that resort is going to be outstanding pretty soon. Likely, it will affect the price, as well. The beach is not big but for us it looks perfect. We visited different beaches on the island (Mullet Beach, Baie Orientale, etc) and found that we don't have to go far to find something better. It's quite deep from one side, if you like to swim, and quite shallow on the other side which makes it perfect for kids. Staff is professional and friendly, and responds right away if you have any questions or needs. We didn't get how room cleaning is scheduled: we had our rooms cleaned daily first three days though, in rules, it's said that cleaning is provided once a week, then they cleaned rooms last two days (we stayed a week). Internet is good though it might interrupt at times (appr. once in hour) but getting back is easy

Simpson Bay Resort

Posted 28-Jun-2014
Pros: Its proximity to great dining and activity.
Location: Casinos, Dining, and entertainment are all within walking distance of the resort. Water sports are excellent!
We stayed down near the waterfront in one of the older buildings. We were very close to the pool, pool bar and beachfront, so everything was quite convenient. Our one-BR suite was quite comfortable, but the staff informed us that the section where we were staying is slated to be closed for complete renovation. This resort has been purchased by an International Management Company, and they are doing a great job improving the facilities. Aqua Mania Water Sports is housed in the complex, so making charter arrangements is quite easy. The Stone Restaurant is great, and we enjoyed a wonderful meal right on the resort. The resort has several eating establishments, and the Hollywood Casino is right on the grounds. Simpson Bay is our favorite spot in St. Maartin. It is beautiful, and there are a number of very fine open-air restaurants within walking distance of your room. For us, THIS is absolutely the area to stay in while in St. Maartin. A car rental makes the French side (and all of their restaurants and beaches) very accessible. The Resort also provides bus tours to see the rest of the island, if you are not interested in driving a car.
