Cannot get any closer to the beach than this...

Posted Oct 3, 2016
Pros: My favorite part of this hotel was the location right on the beach. I also liked that you could walk to Karacters Restaurant in two minutes.
Cons: Hotel staff should greet guests checking in with a cool towel and a cold drink, like a rum punch, as a welcome and cold bottled water in fridge room.
Location: You will need to rent a car or take a tax/bus everywhere. This location is not within walking distance of most things.
I traveled with a friend to St. Maarten and stayed at Mary's Boon. We stayed in a Queen Beachfront room and the beach was about 20 feet from our room to the water, and the beach was clean, beautiful and amazing! We enjoyed the restaurant and the bar. We liked the swimming pool, however, it is a lot smaller in person than in the pictures. I have to tell you about the SPA though! The massage therapist told me to not be shy and to strip everything off, then she painted paraffin wax on my WHOLE body (and I mean my whole entire body) and then gave me a full body massage. If you are faint of heart about people touching you or being naked, don't do the spa. BUT, if you can just relax and go with it, it was an awesome experience. The resort is small, quaint and beautiful, but could use some upgrades. The staff are friendly and willing to help you. Also, this hotel is right next to the airport, so when I was swimming in the ocean, I could see these huge planes flying out and it was cool. We were in low season so the hotel had no planned activities or beach events, which was disappointing, but like I said, we went during the low season, which was nice because it wasn't too crowded. My suggestion to management would be to buy new bedspreads and pillow shams as the ones in our room looked on the older side. Also, it didn't bother us, but there was these little tiny ants on our kitchen counter. It might bother other guests though. My favorite staff person was John!!

Beautiful beach and charming place...

Stayed here and while the drive in was a bit strange, the location is really nice and the people at Mary Boon were very helpful and pleasant. The beach and restaurant overlooking the beach are beautiful.

Perfect place to stay!

Pros: Everything!
Cons: I wouldn't....
Location: Simpson bay or rent a car and drive all over the island!
This isn't a fancy hotel with top of the line facilties but it isn't meant to be. If you are looking for clean, comfy, literally on the ocean, friendly embracing staff and lots of charm: this is it! It's low key, it has a local feel, the proximity to the airport is actually fun without being obtrusive and the beach is beautiful. We were looking for real, authentic, but clean and responsive: we got it. I toured the island quite a bit while on vacation we didn't find another place I would rather have stayed at. Highly reccomend this place if you want comfort and class without the resort cookie cutter feel. By the way: dinner at the restaurant will seem pricey until you taste the food. Top notch cook...and we are foodies. We appreciate great cusine. Wonderful stay, wonderful vacation and largely thanks to Mary's Boon!

Quaint Hotel on Busy St. Maarten

Posted Jun 10, 2016 on Hotels
All in all, we had a wonderful stay at Mary's Boon! For those who have been to the Caribbean before and understand some of the challenges these islands deal with, this hotel is a quaint little find with a wonderful white sandy beach. Some may find the airport noise and surrounding neighborhood at bit of a turn off but, for us, it just added to our adventure!

Marys boon has lots of character . We had a beachfront room . Un believable views of Simpson bay. Titi the bartender was superb. What an awesome personality . Mike who works there also was like a friend to us as soon as we met him . Raul the manager of the restaurant was very nice . The restaurant at Mary's boon ( Satori) had incredible food . They should definitely promote it more . The check in was simple . It was a great place to stay in St. Maarten.

プライベートビーチやこじんまりとしたプールがあるので、ホテルでゆっくりリゾート気分を味わえるかもしれない。 しかしたまたまかもしれないが、私の泊まっていた部屋は部屋の天井の電気がなかなか付かなかった。 にも関わらず部屋を変えてくれなかった。 あとカリブ海の島のホテルはしょうがないのかもしれないが、部屋の中に蟻が結構居たので、食べ物の置き場に気を使った。 ホテルのフロントがなんと24時間対応ではなかった。 平日と土日でフロント対応の時間が異なり、土日は朝9時からしかフロントにスタッフがいないため、 チェックアウトはそれまで待つ必要がった。

Nice place to stay, location makes it.

Posted Apr 30, 2016
Pros: friendly prompt staff, great bar/ beach service! fresh towels! cute pool area, great landscape,good food...
Cons: this dame shows some signs of her age, microwave was out, bathroom door top hinge cause drag on floor, A/C filters blocked, main door knob loose ect.
Location: walk to the distances for food...
I think that the weakness/strength of Mary's is that it is like a pair of well worn favorite shoes that at some point one has to make a choice about. They feel so great when you put them on and you like everything about them but time starts to show maybe a trip to the cobbler is called for. Try not to look to hard for flaws rather focus on whats done well and a Stay at Mary's Boon will be well worth the reasonable price. Aerosexuals will enjoy the proxmity to the Airport and the thunder of jets others maybe not so much, it didnt bother me at all.

We had the king size bed room beach side

Posted Apr 11, 2016
Pros: I opened my door and the beach is 5 steps away.
Cons: New stove / hot plate and better water pressure.
The room was comfortable and clean. You need to realize this is not a Marriott. It was a charming place but old. If you are going for a place that a clean beautiful beach is just 5 steps away from your front door this is it. The staff made every effort to address any concern and they were all very nice and friendly. Room could use some updating but since I do not go on vacation to spend time in my room it was fine for me. Take mosquito spray that being said I only got bitten once. This is close to everything so once you get your bearings getting to everything on the island is easy.
