I have stayed at the Westin Oyster Pond several times now . Everyone has been so very accommodating. I cannot imagine wanting to stay anyplace else. The manager Dan B. goes out of his way to see that u r enjoying the food the services etc. The room and bed are the best. The pool is delightful. And of course... More

the resort is very clean and has is on the water with access to a private beach. The most unique feature though is the exceptional service - everybody at the resort is extremely helpful, accommodating and friendly. The food at the main restaurant is very tasty as well.

Dawn beach is a beautiful location near the French border. renting a car or taxi makes the island is easy to navigate no matter where you are. The Westin has a great pool and beach as well as a casino. There are several restaurants both in-house and local to satisfy any taste. rooms and service are excellent.

The room was in C building. Old Westin look. One building has been done over and apparently more of the Caribbean look. The unit was dark and worn and barely had a peek at the ocean. We went to the gift shop to get bottles of water for the room. Two small bottles of Fiji were 4.50 each. Its called... More

I've only been here twice and only stayed one night each time, so your experience may differ, but I found this to be a beautiful property though as a Westin, it certainly should be! And it is! (My typical hotel is a Hilton, Marriott, Hyatt so you can take what I say in that context.) It is on the opposite... More

This was a business trip to review hotels for future meetings. This hotel was out choice pick during our 3 island tour because of how nice the hotel is and the interest in St. Maarten's as a destination. The hotel and hotel staff were all excellent as was the food and amenities.

27 of us descended on the Westin and DBC for our wedding in July. As timeshare owners at DBC, we had arranged three units, as well as two hotel rooms for the week. This being our first use of the timeshare, the mixed reviews of the Westin, all of our friends and family, and a pretty special occasion, needless to... More

This is a great resort. We staff were the friendliest we have ever encountered, always a smile and an hello. The pools were amazing and it was nice to have a hottub. The swimup bar was fun but the seats were not comfortable for people wearing shorter bathing suits. There are no stores near the resort and a car is... More

First we were greeted by Stevenson's large, warm friendly smile and then we were met by Jeane at the front desk who was just as warm and friendly. The staff at this hotel is amazing...Regina and Kim who made sure we had everything we needed at our beach cabana. Kevin at Ocean's made sure we were enjoying our breakfast daily.... More

There have been several times in the Caribbean that I didn't think the resort lived up to its rating. This is not one of them. Cleanliness, upkeep, and staffing quality are usually where resorts fall short in the Caribbean. The Westin gets very high marks across the board. The pool and beach area is outstanding. We really enjoyed it!
