Great Place to stay but you will need a car

Posted Sep 20, 2014
Pros: The pool (even though shade was a premium) The staff
The most important thing you need to know about St Maarten is that you will need a car. The westin was a good hotel but not outstanding. The hotel staff were excellent and the pool is spectacular but the rooms were good but not great. The food is great the panninis and sandwiches by the pool are good value and the restaurant has good food at standard more expensive hotel prices. However if you don't want to eat there there is precious little around especially for vegetarians. There are two little restaurants and a pizza place and a small restauant about a 10-15 walk away from the hotel. The hotel is on the Atlantic Coast so waves are rougher. There is a casino but there is not a lot to do after dark as town also closes down, you might have to travel to Simposons Bay for restaurants. Mind you the whole place was pretty much dead as it was the low season. People are friendly on the island. Glad we went.

Pros: great staff, friendly
Had a fabulous time at the hotel. Great room, lots of lounge chairs available at all times. Attentive service. Ate out most of the time as there were many French restaurants near by.

Amazing views

Posted Aug 12, 2014
Pros: Almost everything.
Cons: Female restaurant staff members attitude and efficiency.
Location: Great location. Off the beaten path, so no panhandlers on the beach trying to see you trinkets. Lots of great restaurants close by though in Oyster
Amazing views, very comfortable bed, awesome rain shower with handheld wand, efficient housekeeping staff, provision of plentiful amount of towels and high quality bath products, very good food, huge morning breakfast buffet and Sunday champagne brunch, entertaining nightlife. Only complain was some of the female staff members in the restaurants were not very friendly or efficient; however, the male staff members more than made u for them. Fluffiest white sand beaches I've ever seen, wonderful ocean breeze and great waves to body surf. Would highly recommend this hotel. My family had a great time!

Great place to relax.

Posted Jul 30, 2014
Pros: great place to relax
Cons: Casino staff could use some customer service classes and a personality injection.
Location: Oyster Pond nearby..............worth checking out. Town only 20 min. away for shopping!
Great hotel away from the bustle. Casino staff could use some personality.

The hotel was not even close to the location said.

Posted Jul 29, 2014
Pros: Restaurants have good food, but expensive.
Cons: Provide better descriptions of properties.
Location: Far off the beaten path. Not much to do nearby.
The hotel is a 40-50 minute drive from the airport, not 9 miles as described. The taxis charge is $35.00 U.S. The day staff at the hotel are very nice however the night time staff during our visit were not very helpful. The beach is small, dirty and the water was very rough during our visit. I would rate this hotel as a very low end Westin property. Not worth the cost of the rooms.

The hotel was amazing! Very clean and the staff was very friendly and accommodating. The food and drink were slightly pricy compared to other places around the island, but our overall stay was perfect!

We spent 10 wonderful nights at this hotel. The beach is gorgeous as is the pool. The staff was very friendly and helpful. We ate most of our meals off the property, though. There are plenty of nearby restaurant options at Oyster Pond.

Fantastic service

Posted Jun 25, 2014 on Hotels.com
The property is beautiful and well maintained. The staff is outstanding from the moment you arrive and Freesner takes your bags and Nadine checks you in. The Manager David and the rest of his staff are very attentive to all your needs. This was our second visit to this property and we can not wait to go back. There are two restaurants on the property that are very good. Aura been more upscale than Ocean both are very good. At Oyster Pond the marina next door are two outstanding restaurants Big Fish and Canoa. Highly recommend this property when visiting St Marteen.
