Hotel was very nice, staff was very friendly and helpful. The drive out was a little congested and slow but once at the hotel it is beautifulGenuine Hotels.com guest review
My husband and I had a very lovely week at the Westin St. Maarten, Dawn Beach Resort and Spa. We rented a room with the ocean view and were happy we did so. The staff was very courteous and helpful. If you want to see the island however you either have to rent a car or use taxi services. The taxi service can be expensive if you want to go to the French […] side. I would definitely return to this resort, Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"The Westin is fabulous"
From the time I arrived, hotel staff very friendly and professional, the restaurant food was tasty and the casino was loads of fun! The pool area and private beach made for a very relaxing atmosphere. Great location to visit the French or Dutch side in close proximity. I will definitely return. I still want to try out the spa. You may see an occasional […] tiny ant on the floor and a lizard at the outside eating area, but no worries, you'll love your stay! Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"Sea always rough, personal careless. Mold in room"
For the position, the beach is very nice but the sea is always rough. Personal is careless, slow and icky at the restaurant in terrace. Housekeepers are fanciful, once there wasn't toweling robe, sometimes shampoo or towels. in other words, As they wake up. The room smelled of mold.Genuine Expedia guest review

"Great location but always overcrowded"
Went for a one night business trip. I usually stay there because of location convenience. The restaurant in the lobby service is horrible and of coarse food is overpriced. I waited 45mins for an appetizer and the waiter said its Bc they were busy. I've been here 3xs it's always the same excuse. Reception gets flustered at checking in so many ppl. Hotel […] is always crowded. Good for them but bad for the client. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Older westin , needs updating, STAFF ARE APPAULING"
The staff were terrible, they do not seem empowered to provide the Westin experience I have been used to before, the property does need a little updating, looked a little tired. They have time share for sale there in the hotel, every time we walked past we got accosted by the staff trying to sell us something, it was truly annoying.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Great hotel on the beach"
Helpful friendly staff. Modern styling clean well kept rooms and facilities. Nice pool and beach area. We traveled with our two young boys under five and was a good experience and recommend for families.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Westin Oyster Pond"
The hotel was okay at best. First, for a Westin standard it did not meet my expectations. Especially booking a ocean front view for my honeymoon. The room was on the first floor and had a high level of humidity from the ocean wind which resulted in a majority of our clothes feeling damp when left out of our suitcases. The service was spotty depending […] on who we dealt with which was shocking again for a hotel with such a high name in the US. The food had to be the biggest upset. We stopped eating at the hotel after my wife and I tried the breakfast buffet. The meals were over twenty dollars a person, had less quality than a Waffle House, and were lukewarm like they had been sitting our for hours. The few positives from our stay were the nice beach (not the water), the up to date fitness center, and the bed comfort. If I return to St. Martin in the future I will not be staying at this hotel.

"Great Caribbean resort."
Our family had a wonderful time at this resort. The staff was extremely helpful and friendly. The pool and beach area is simple but nice. The food was overpriced, but decent, and occasionally wonderful.Genuine Expedia guest review

We only stayed one night until our timeshare was ready, but it was a good stay. The hotel is immaculate and the pool and beach are beautiful.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Beautiful location, has the potential"
I have mixed feelings about the Westin St. Maarten. I felt like the important pieces were there - nice location, beautiful outdoor area which is most important at a resort, good service, attentive staff. Unfortunately we were really disappointed by the food. As other reviewers commented, Mr. Busbys is a nice and cheaper option and just a walk away, […] but I could not find food that tasted right at either option. Cleanliness is of utmost importance to me. I wouldn't say the Westin's rooms were downright dirty but there were stains on the wallpaper behind the toilet and food wrappers/foreign hairs in the closet and around the furniture. Most importantly, the bed was clean and comfortable. I think there are better ways to "do St. Maarten". The rental property called "Coral Beach" next to Mr. Busby's piqued my curiosity. Staying someplace with a kitchen would cut the cost of the mediocre food at the Westin. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Westin: SXM's Finest"
This is my 3rd time staying at the Westin. I used to live on the island for school, so I got to know it pretty well. While its far away from Maho where are the clubs are at and also from Grand Case, where all the restaurants are, it's close enough to Orient Bay on the French side and Philipsburg on the Dutch. I love the Sunday brunch there! It's amazing! […] Bottomless mimosas, crab legs, oysters, and much more for $50. The pool is beautiful. They have this great, big jacuzzi in the back that you can dip into all night. The beach is beautiful, just windy and has a strong current that goes from right to left. All the way on the right side there's a nice reef right by the shore, so make sure to bring snorkel gear. It's nice because its so close to the shore and if you want, you can let the current take you the length of the beach and you don't have to work hard for it. The rooms are great, especially the ones with ocean view. For the first time I had one and I left the balcony door open and it gave us a relaxing sound all night. Casino is small but no aiming is allowed which is great. Has all the games you need accept roulette and baccarat. Service here is top notch. You really could stay the whole weekend here. I'd definitely come back if I'm ever at SXM again. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

It was just what I was looking for. Very relaxing...The spa was great, too. Louise T. BertacchiGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Checked in late in the evening, too tired to check the balconey and view. Although hotel wasn't very full they assigned us a corner room with the smallest balconey in the hotel with no view. The only view was the balconey next to our room. The balconey was so small that the 2 chairs and small table barely fit. This room should only be given out as a […] last resort with a disclosure that "this room has the smallest balconey in the hotel and the only view is the adjacent balconey." When I asked for room change the response was "we'll keep you in mind" but nothing was done. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"great hotel for quite vacation"
It is a nice quality resort. we were there April 13-20 1013, has nice beach, and clean room. Just the location is a little isolate. To get in and out of hotel one have to drive the very steep ramp, for people have heart diease better go to a easy access resort on the island.Genuine Expedia guest review
The property is beautiful, in a very remote area. Meal costs seem high. $55 for a Sunday Brunch seems quite high, when normal breakfast buffet is only $7,00. Too pushy on the time share portion of the property.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Clean, serviceable. No turn down service, even though requested. Had to ask for things not left in room after cleaning.Genuine Expedia guest review
Good room size, food not so good, nice places around for a good dinner, need a car to move aroundGenuine Expedia guest review
"Can't wait to come back!"
We had an amazing week at the Westin. Our beachfront view was #1 on our list, and it did not disappoint. We spent many mornings and evenings on our porch just admiring the vista. We had breakfast buffet every morning at Ocean--special shout out to our servers, Melinda, Lilianne, and Simon, who were the sweetest, friendliest people, day after day. Thank […] you to the manager Dave who helped us work out some tiny issues when we first arrived--they made our stay exceptionally more comfortable. The pool was fantastic--never crowded, we always found four chairs together for the family, and this was spring break. The beach was breathtaking. I had read some reviews that that the water could be rough, but the waves were mild the entire week we were there, and I am not a "strong" swimmer. We even bought masks and snorkels at the gift shop and went snorkeling right on the beach....for hours! Lunch at the "deli" was delivered right to our chairs, whether we were on the beach or at the pool. We rented a car for a few days (there's a table right in the lobby, again, very convenient) and did some sightseeing. Dinner we preferred to eat off the property. Mr Busby's up the hill (a very steep hill--drive if you can) was our favorite. Summary: Loved it, amazing friendly staff, and hope to come back again soon. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
We only stayed one night as we were on our way to catch a cruise but the hotel was very nice. We were upgraded from a garden view room to an ocean view room when we checked in which was great. The outdoor areas of the hotel, especially the pool and beach area are beautiful and in excellent condition. The outdoor restaurant where we ate breakfast was […] wonderful and the food was quite good. Overall we thought the hotel was very nice and we would definitely stay there again.

"Great vacation- because of the people"
We were very well looked after at the Westin .You have to be aware that the hotel is not in the midst of all the activities. It is a quiet, peaceful environment. If you want to rent a car or go on excursions , all the services are there. Also, you can walk to Oyster Pond and there are some eating areas there.Good place for a family, young children.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"We'll Be Back!"
Our trip to St. Maarten was wonderful. We booked the Westin because it was recommended by friends who had been staying elsewhere but had come across it and visited. We took their advice and booked there, knowing that it was supposed to be a beautiful resort situated on one of the island's best beaches. To say the very least, we were not disappointed […] and were happily surprised at each turn. The staff, from cleaning to the hotel manager, were courteous, quick and efficient. The hotel was fairly quiet despite being full. There was never any need to rush to save a chair by the pool or on the beach - there were plenty available. The hotel was always clean and the grounds were kept in immaculate condition. The infinity edge pool was spectacular and spacious. The general feeling on the resort was one of luxury and indulgence. We absolutely loved every minute! Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
The hotel and property are very nice and the hotel personnel are extremely friendly and accommodating. They will go out of their way to handle requests that you may make. The only negatives are that the hotel does not provide umbrellas in the pool and beach area and it does get very hot. Also, one cannot comfortably drive a car on that part of the island, […] especially at night; however, taxi fares are reasonable. We would definetely come back to the hotel and I highly recommend it.

"Ok business hotel. Great beach."
Typical Westin. Lovely but had a bit of business feel which - as a frequent business traveler - I prefer to avoid when on vacation. Prices in hotel and surrounding area are outrageous. They had no beach toys or beach activities. Chairs and towels were nice and available. Gym was very small and there were no other exercise options (no running or walking). If […] I return I would likely look elsewhere. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"A good hotel for all."
They didn't have our reservation when we tried to ckeck in. They did a good job getting things right the next day. We will give them another chance next year. Everythig else was very good.Genuine Expedia guest review
Attitude of the wait staff in the restaurant was disappointing. Although this "don't care" attitude is typical of many of the islands, one would expect a friendlier attitude when staying at a hotel in this price range. Also, its surprising that this hotel allows smoking in the lobby casino.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Good but expensive."
Pleasant. Excellent pool, small beach. Very clean. Good but expensive restaurants. Overall quite happy.Genuine Expedia guest review
Great getaway for our 20 th anniversary. The view at poolside is awsome.great beaches and friendly staff. To me, the hotel and rooms need a little upgrading. Cracks in the ceilings, old caulking in room and no detail to cleanliness.....max at the ocean restaurant helped me with a private beach dining table for latenight wine and deserts which was wonderful. […] Also visited Anguilla and St. Barth, beautiful as well. The dinghey dock bar was great and the westin hooked us up with a private driver, Van Mccoy to drive us around Anguilla. Van was wonderful. verall the stay was great. Lots of memories..... Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"its just ok - not worth the price"
Great front desk staff. Poor restaurant staff, rude and slow or nice and slow. Nice big pool. Pretty beach. Really pretty bay. But the tides and currents made it my least favorite beach to visit. The room was ok. nice big bathroom. didn't provide shampoo or shower gel - probably just an oversight.Genuine Expedia guest review

"Fun, Great Beach,Clean, Friendly for all Ages"
I went with our family for 8 days at Christmas. We loved the resort it was perfect for teens. All the younger kids around were also having a blast. The staff was so nice and help full. Dawn was an amazing concierge and every restaurant was great. Big Fish,Canoa,Yvettes all close by. On the French side it's very expensive but the Lolos are fun and the […] bakeries outstanding. The food was good at the hotel but gets old after a couple days. Stay away from the Buffet's the Christmas one was really expensive for the quality of food. We rented a boat for a day to go diving and fishing, then scuba diving another day and the butterfly farm. Most of the time we loved the pool and beach and girls day at the spa! We met other families from around the world as it attracts nice families but not the snobby type. Island people incredibly friendly and island just big enough to explore and very different in each area. Over past airport out toward the beach the sunsets and coast line were amazing. My family has traveled a lot and all of us thought this one vacation was one of the best for all my kids (14,17,19) ages. We were sad to leave! Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Hotel needs renovation!!"
Hotel rooms needed to be renovated. Large stains on carpets and light fixtures and towel fixtures had rusted. The outside of the hotel and the restaurants all seemed very nice. They should have umbrella stands around the pool for shade as well.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Beautiful Beach Location"
Tlhe Westin Dawn Beach met our needs for a pre and post night stay for our cruise. Our guest room and bathroom were exceedingly spacious with lovely verandas with a partial ocean view. The pool area was lovely with ample seating for all guests and a large pool for swimming. The poolside restaurant provided excellent ambiance for breakfast, lunch and […] dinner. Overall, the staff was courteous and helpful. The location, however, is quite far from the airport and marina, requiring rather expensive taxi rides. There is not an opportunity to walk to shopping or other dining choices. Given that, it was a relaxing and pleasant property for our purposes. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Didn't want to leave!"
Stayed here two nights prior to leaving on a cruise. It was fantastic! Very comfortable bed, nice room w ocean view of St Barts, quiet neighborhood, hotel is not huge so everything was in close proximity (pool, restaurant, bar, casino). Hotel staff were accommodating and friendly. The only downside is it's a 20 minute drive from shopping, restaurants, […] etc. although found a great spot for dinner 5 minutes away at the marina. Overall great property and we would definitely return. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Great staff, great location, nice rooms. Restaraunt was fine, but a bit overpriced. Since the hotel is oceanfront, some of the metalic fixtures in the room were oxidized. It didn't bother us.Genuine Expedia guest review
Very nice hotel, with nice location, with a nice beach and perfect pool. Its away from cruise crowds. On the expensive side for food and kid club enrollment.

But probably nicest place on island, and […] i would come back. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Okay - But Not Great"
The resort was nice. The food was below average and overpriced. The resort is really remote and not close to anything. So rent a car or you will have to pay a lot of money on cabs. If you want to be closer to everything I would not stay here. On average it can take you up to an hour to get from the airport to the resort. Oh and the air conditioning […] does not work that well in the rooms. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Relaxing & Peaceful"
I stayed at the Westin for a long weekend with a girl friend. Amazing resort with beautiful grounds, but there are a few things to be aware of. - There are no umbrellas/shade around the pool or at the beach. You must pay for a cabana. - The staff is friendly, but our keys didn't work the entire first day due to a technical issue. We saw this happen […] to 2 other guests as well. - The food is ok, but nothing amazing But aside those 3 things - I would still recommend the resort! The pool area is gorgeous and the overall environment is very relaxing. For any runners, I'd also recommend the 3K/5K running path recommended by the hotel that brings you to the French side of the island. Lot's of hills, but worth it - amazing views and felt very safe doing it. Will definitely return to St. Maarten soon! Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

The hotel was extremely clean and the overall staff were as nice and pleasant as we had hoped for. one day we returned to our room and housekeeping was there, scrubbing and cleaning like crazy!

"Very nice overall experience"
My husband and I visited St. Maarten/St. Martin to celebrate my birthday. We stayed at the Westin (Dawn Beach). I highly recommend this property. The staff was friendly (I see why they call it the friendly island) and very helpful. The room was very nice (and I'm a picky person). The hotel and hotel grounds were well kept/maintained. There were lots […] of amenities and we used them (the gym, the business center, the pool, restaurant, casino). We ate at the hotel restaurant and had room service several times. The service and food was good on both fronts. Of course, the hotel prices were higher, but then again you are on an island. The hotel is a bit out of the way and best if you want a more secluded stay. Overall, I'd stay there again in a heartbeat. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
What an amazing location. Swim directly off the beach to great snorkeling. Restaurant in the hotel has a great brunch and surrounding restaurants are just what you would expect during a island getaway. Fresh seafood right on the beach. Staff was over the top friendly.
