Beautiful property, great room, and excellent hotel staff. The front desk staff was wonderful and so helpful. The restaurant staff (we only utilized for breakfast) were good, but one gentleman in particular was quite rude. The bar staff (who were also the beach staff) were also not as kind and helpful, so we stopped using our area of the beach (the beach chairs and umbrella were included in our hotel stay.) Apparently the new management has changed things, and you can no longer bring your own food or drinks out to the beach. We chose to pay to spend our days at another area of the beach to rent chairs and an umbrella. The people of St. Martin were amazing, and the hotel staff were so great, but I am not sure we will stay at this hotel again.

The properties location is on a beautiful stretch of beach on Orient Bay. Service from everyone was excellent. The staff at the restaurant are amazing!!! Alex, Alexandra, Jade, Jeffrey, Nicholas, were so helpful with food choices and with places to take the car and go and see!! The staff at the lobby .. Katy, Jairo, Sellena, Ellena and others were so accommodating! The room was cleaned with fresh towels everyday. The hotel is located that you can walk outside and go to The Village of restaurants. Very convenient and food was excellent!! The beaches of St Maarten are beautiful along with the people. I will definitely be back!! 😉
