Due to unforeseen circumstances we needed a two-night stop on St Maarten. As it was all last minute I managed to get a good deal and paid $300 for two nights in a two-bedroom suite: my kids had a queen bed each, a bathroom and small kitchenette. Us adults had a king size bed, a living room and excellently equipped kitchen. Huge bathroom and balcony too. Wonderful rooms, clean, crisp and very big. We stayed in unit 206A/B, with oceanfront view. 2nd floor which meant we had to keep the curtains closed to ensure privacy, as the pool was right below us. That again was handy as the kids had not far to walk and we could oversee them from our balcony. Yes, there is direct beach access but it is rocky. It is ok if all you want is a jump in the ocean (bay) but if you want to do some lying in the sun you will need to walk a few minutes to the sandy part of the beach. The staff is very nice, check-in was prompt and efficient. The location of The Villas is very convenient, there are several grocery stores close by, as are the restaurants and bars. Would stay here again. This hotel is an upgrade from the Simpson Bay Resort & Marina. They are linked allright, but The Villas is the more luxurious of the two, as far as I could tell. The Simpson Bay Resort & Marina appears to be getting completely different reviews as well.
