On our last day we had amazing peach crepes while enjoying a beautiful view of the shoreline. Service was good. I would definitely go back and try other items on the menu

We decided to check out Pic Paradise and we were a little disappointed. We drove up the long, secluded, narrow road. The views are nice--visability was not great on the day that we were there, but it was beautiful.

We were cruisng with Holland America and opted to do the "Downhill Hiking Excursion" in St. Maarten.

Our guide, Claudette, met us at the dock, and after an air-conditioned bus ride to Loterie Farm, we boarded a truck which carried us to the top of Paradise Peak.

The drive up was fun, on a steep narrow track that is used to service the communications equipment at the top of the hill. There were great views from the top and at a few other locations on the trek down the hill.

Our group of 16 set off with Claudette, to walk down the hill on well-defined trails, back to Loterie Farm. The trail is slippery in places, and even with the walking sticks provided, at least 4 of our group slipped and fell. The excursion description identified that a high level of fitness was required, and it was obvious that a number of people in our group believed that they were in better shape than they actually were.

Claudette kept us entertained with stories and information, and made the excursion "Excellent". She truly is the "Hiking Queen" of St. Maarten.

I would reccomend this excursion to those who are in good shape and have good balance.

My cousins and I hiked up to Paradise Point recently - it was great! We parked our car at the base of the road and walked up the road from there. At the end of the road, we hiked up the trail to the lookout point with its spectacular view, and then hiked up another trail to find a wonderful meadow with another great view of the island. The meadow was like something out of The Sound of Music! We met a very friendly dog on the way up - he stayed with us for quite some time up and down the road and the two trails. Another reviewer mentioned the same thing and I wonder if it's the same dog. Bonus - we rewarded ourselves with coffee at the Loterie Farm lounge - what a great spot! I'm glad we went up to Paradise Peak - I might not have done it if I'd read some of these negative reviews.
