“So much better than we expected!”
Reviewed 7 September 2012

After trading in our 2BR timeshare week for a week at Oyster Bay in a 1BR, we weren't sure what we'd get once we got there. As soon as we drove into the resort we were so happy with our choice. The resort location is great, although a little out of the way. The amenities are great and the room was beautiful with enough room for 4 of us. The kitchen was easy to use for several meals during our stay and we loved the private balcony that sits over the water. The staff was excellent and we were really sad to leave. It is a great resort on a beautiful location.

We recently spent a week's stay at the Oyster Bay Resort and what a lovely week it was! We were in a two bedroom suite with a totally private balcony overlooking the ocean. The suite was large, comfortable and had a well equipped kitchen. Most of the resort suites and rooms have been recently renovated and they've done a lovely job.

The staff work hard to keep guests happy, from a friendly check in to on-site and off site activities. You can choose to attend pool parties, poker games, trips to beaches, casinos etc.

We loved the new addition of afternoon frozen lemonade samplers in the pool area!!!!

The resort is located on Dawn Beach (my favorite beach in St. Maarten) and you have a few really lovely restaurants within walking distance to the resort. I would highly recommend a visit to the Big Fish Restaurant, wonderful food, awesome service! Of course the hula hoop shooters added to my enjoyment!

St. Maarten is a small island and I would highly recommend you rent a car while staying at the Resort, it really makes life easier to just hop in the car and explore the islands many lovely beaches and towns.

I would definitely stay at Oyster Bay Resort again, the staff is great, the rooms are lovely and the beach is sublime.

Room Tip: try to book one of the newly renovated suites, and I would definitely choose a suite with an oceanvi...

I spend there 10 days and I think that the rooms are beautiful, my room was oceanview and it was clean and big enough even the color of the room was really nice.. The bed is so big and comfortable, I really got a good sleep there...

My room has kitchen and all the tools for cooking, everything was pretty much new brand.. Nice place!!!

The staff is really friendly and they helped me to make a surprise party for may husband, the enjoyed so much and the decorations in the room and the champaigne was awsome...

The instalations of the hotel are not that big, even I did not like the rest of the hotel but the main thing is the comfortable of the rooms...

They have access to the beach which is a good aspect...

Room Tip: The oceanview are really nice rooms.

Would like to thank the staff of Oyster Bay beach resort in particular, the General Manager, Mr. Ricardo Perez for a wonderful stay at his hotel. The room was clean, beautiful, well kept and spectacular. Now that I am spoild, I would expect the same room every time I'm in St. Maarten...hint hint. Kudos to you and your staff for a job well done. It was great!

Wow! We just got back from spending a week at OBBR. We were in a 2 bedroom unit, rooms 1226/1227, which was right on the ocean. Our rooms had been renovated recently and were beautiful. From the kitchen window we could see the Oyster Pond marina and from the balcony the ocean, with the waves crashing on the coral reef just below our 3rd floor room. The staff was very helpful, especially those at the activities desk. We were able to get beach chairs and snorkel gear (free) on Dawn Beach. We had a car to tour around the island, but the resort is so self-contained that you could stay there and have a great time. We would love to return sometime in the near future. I highly recommend.

For the best resort experience this is the place to stay. This is a beautiful resort with awesome service. You'll find everything you need right there or very close by. This is definitely St. Maarten and the Caribean's #1 resort.

Room Tip: Upper level rooms have fantastic views!
