Okay...honestly, I wasn't expecting a lot when I booked this place, as we just needed a place to lay our heads from our late flight into St. Martin, until the next day, when we were taking the ferry to Anguilla to our amazing resort, the Carimar Beach Club. But for $200 for the night, and based on the reviews, I expected clean, safe and comfortable. NONE of those was true here. The place, in a word, is about as clean and well-kept as a pay-by-the-hour joint...smelling of stale cigarettes and beer, with dirty tiles and bathrooms, broken furniture, and linens that I didn't think were changed (and insisted on being given clean linens to make up the beds myself). There were all sorts of seedy characters hanging out there (and I've been to St. Martin 3 times...I know the difference between the regular hard-working locals and a criminal element). No one, and I mean NO ONE who was employed there was over age 25...including the maid who I saw making up rooms the next day, with the clean linens thrown on the filthy floor in the disgusting hallway. If you care about cleanliness, safety and customer service, sleep in your car before you slep here. NEVER, EVER again!!
