This was a full service resort on the Dutch side of the island. I was able to access excursions via my personal concierge and take tours all over the island. Bars and nightlife outside the resort are within walking distance and there's always a good time to be had. Room was fully equipped with a kitchen and staff were friendly...

The staff are very friendly and accommodating. The rooms are clean and there is a full kitchen here and a grocery store 2 mins from our room. The layout is great and the view is fantastic. This was a great place to come for a relaxing get away.

This is my second time staying here and I loved it yet again. The only complaint I have is that both times I have stayed here, after checking in I never heard from my concierge, Other than that it was perfect. The rooms were beautiful and the views were amazing. Although we did have to upgrade rooms at check in.

I was hesitant to stay here but since they just finished a renovation of all rooms it is wonderful. Updated kitchens, new beds and decor. They really did a great job of redoing everything. The beach is not the best but they have plenty of room and the bartenders are great (with some great drink specials). Resort is close to...

We (my boyfriend and I; 34 & 38) attended the SXM Festival in St. Maarten and stayed at the Simpson Bay Resort & Marina in March 2017 and if it wasn't for the hotel and awesome weather, I would have been pretty cranky. We had initially booked a Studio with a kitchen, but were pleasantly surprised that when I arrived...

We were in the worst location of the resort but the beds were so comfy. Gym was great but turning on the fans would have been appreciated. Nice beach and beach bars. We would go back! We don't have a timeshare.
