I stayed at the Princess Heights because the Westin down the hill was booked for the time I would be on the island. I'm so glad I stayed at the Princess Heights! It's location is a bit remote, but it was so quiet and peaceful and actually a lot nicer than the Westin. The front office is run by Dutch...

We chose the hotel based on reviews during an island hopping trip around the Leeward Islands and stayed here five nights. Deciding factors for us were the free car rental, the laundry facility, the cooking option and the short walk to the beach and local restaurants. Usually we look for good value, whether it's a well maintained three star hotel...

My husband and I absolutely loved our one week stay at Princess Heights. The hotel is built into a hillside so the views of the ocean as well as the island are exquisite. We stayed in a one-bedroom condo with a huge balcony, spacious living area, large bedroom, gorgeous bathroom with a Jacuzzi tub, and a modern kitchen filled with...

Employees of this property make this so great! Awesome interns running this place. You do need a car. Request newer building with the elevators. Every room is decorated and furnished differently. We loved the convenience of having a kitchen with kids. We only tried Mama pizza in the area and drove to Simpson bay, Grand case or Orient beach village...

We purchased a travel package from Costco in last-minute, which included airfares, hotels, transportations between airport and hotel, and rent-a-car. We, two adults and a teen boy, stayed at one bed room # 904B of a new building for four nights. Our new building was located higher than old building and had elevator. So office and outdoor swimming pool were...

There are two choices, once you check in. If you are in building one, you climb as many as four flights of stairs; no elevator. If you are in building two, you get back in your car, drive halfway back to Oyster Pond, turn onto the entry road to a gated community, drive back to the parking lot for building...

Everything from our awesome room, to the view and the staff was perfect! We could not believe how large and clean the rooms were. We had a two bedroom two bath with living area. The "smaller" room was large and even had its own kitchenette. There is a well stocked full kitchen attached to the living area. We chose the...

We visited St. Maarten for the second time this month, where we stayed at Princess Heights for the second time as well. There are numerous options for hotels but Princess Heights is a wonderful option. The rooms are clean, views are amazing, and the service is awesome. Definitely recommend!

Princess Heights exceeded our expectations - from check-in to check-out. Two couples were staying in a 2 bedroom condo in the taller, newer building. Carmen welcomed us and showed us to our condo (by car!) and gave us a number of good tips and information about the condo and St Maarten. Checking in was a breeze. The room itself was...
