parking at sunset beach bar and grill at maho beach

the sunset beach bar and grill is always a good place to watch planes land in st maarten,however,visitors need to be aware of the so called new parking fees $5.00. The parking fee sign is very small and appears to be hand written so one is not aware of this until you park in the adjacent lot. The "lot addendant" a local uniformed woman, is roaming the lot showing cars where to park....you can find parking on your own there, then comes up to your car wanting $5.00.

We had a "surprising NASTY" experience with this woman as we were just looking thru the lot. She comes up to the passenger side window banging on window and yelling at us wanting money.

As I told her we haven't even parked we were riding thru area, had very NASTY ATTITUDE! DO NOT be imtimidated by her, also once inside sunset bar and grill, we questioned this practice of collecting the money, the servers weren't sure, then said the $5.00 goes towards your bill there, which the lot attendants NEVER mentioned...they were just pocketing the money. DO NOT LET THEM TAKE ADVANTAGE OF YOU AS YOU CAN JUST PARK ON NEARBY STREET FOR FREE.

take advantage of you? It is the Caravanserai private property and they have every right to charge you a parking fee if they choose..

The lot attendants are acting on behalf of the hotel as I understand.

They started doing this last Month. The Resort that is being managed by the bank authorized it as they own the lot and rent to SSBB. 5 bucks isn't a big deal for a great place to park without the fear of getting towed by parking in a side street or one that doesn't allow parking.

Anyone know if the parking fee does count as a $5 credit at SSBB?
