Great hotel, Outstanding location

Posted Dec 18, 2014
Pros: The rooms a re very nice. The views are great. Kevin from the beach service group was very special, fantastic attitude
Cons: The hotel parking garage was dimly lit and a bit scary. The people trying to sell timeshares was annoying everytime we drove in or out of the hotel.
Location: Several resturants in and around Oyster Pond. within a mile but not walking distance due to hills.
We spent four nights at the Westin the facilities and the staff were excellent. The property is a drive from the Saint Martin airport but worth the effort. The roads are terrible and the last mile to the hotel will leave you a little breathless. The entrance is not spectacular but the views from the rooms and the pool and beach are great . A rental car for the more adventuresomes is worth it. There are a number of good restaurants within a mile or two and the French side of the silnd is less hectic and you can drive to Grand case where there are some special restaurants.

Not too great

Posted Nov 15, 2014
Probably one of the better hotels on the Dutch side, but wasn't pleased. Beach was very rough. Not what I came on vacation for, felt like I was in the states. Hotel was just OK. Gave us an upgrade to a beach side view, but the hotel hallway had a horrible stench of mold and mildew from a leak in the ceilings. Smelled it from the elevator doors, to the entrance of our room. Staff had bad attitudes and not very helpful. Going to the French side after a bad experience was so pleasing.

Nice hotel, comfortable

Posted Oct 14, 2014
Pros: Spacious rooms, nice beds, great pool and good restaurant Ocean
Cons: Real cutlery in the Beach Grill and improved quality of foods.
Location: Nice and quiet beach area, close to French border
It is a nice hotel on a very quiet location. The rooms are spacious and comfortable. Beach Grill was not really a success. After my remarks the manager apologized and solved this problem excellently. So that was very much appreciated. All together a great hotel for romantic getaways or if you want to relax and re-energize again.

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.

Hôtel a l'américaine, propre moderne, service très bien.chambre a priori abordable vu le standing mais beaucoup de choses en supplément et assez chères (par ex petit dej).
