Nice hotel close to a beach.
A regular room with a pool and ocean view is nice but the balcony is too small. The food in the restaurant is ok.

Very peaceful nest on a beautiful golden beach
From the time we checked in until we checked out we felt to be at the center of attention of the Hotel staff. Extremely polite and kind staff The food at Aura is delicious and the raw bar on Sunday at Ocean addictive.

Poor Food and iguana feces poolside 7/20 - 7/22
My family travel extensively and have traveled many times to St. Maarten. The first day we got there we had a difficult time locating a vacant chair poolside without iguana feces on the ground. I suppose many people enjoy seeing 2ft lizards crawl over your shoes, and congregate under your chair. My little girl who is 4 years old was not impressed, and the feces everywhere I don't see how that can be sanitary. Food: Poolside the only food available is from a limited menu, and understandable to foster fast, and easy to eat poolside dining. The food was poor quality and served by waiters who could not care less (gratuity guaranteed in the bill). My child ordered a very simple meal of chicken fingers, and they were uneatable. The meat itself was brown in color and had a corn flake batter. My child is not a picky eater but refused to eat it. My wife and I tried the food, and we were shocked. When the matter was pointed out to the waiter he did not say a word and brought me the check. For every meal, while we were on the property we paid for a taxi ride to Oyster Pond for meals.

Nice hotel but lots of expensive additions .
Resort fees and taxes really add up and kids club charges were very high.

Excellent hotel on the beach. Beach was small and not good for long walks. Restaurant was good with good wine selection. Concierges were very helpful.

Nice hotel, close to beach.
Nice hotel only wish it had more food choices or they would change the menu. Needs a little more entertainment. Music at the pool or things for the kids.

The staff makes this place the best.
We stayed here 10 nights for our honeymoon. The staff is world class, they remember you and help you anytime you need it. Super friendly. The pool was great as well. Not close to much on the island, but the resort in itself is fantastic. The restaurants offered great food and the poolside bar was great too, however, it does get pretty pricey so i wouldn't suggest eating too many meals here or having too many drinks. I would recommend this place for sure though.
