“nice resort, nice island”
Reviewed 6 November 2013

The resort was nice, most of the staff was wonderful. I didn't like the hard sell for the time share. Overall my trip was wonderful and I would stay there again. I would definitely recommend a car to explore the island.

Room Tip: Get an ocean view room... the view is spectacular

The resort was great, always clean and with great views. Each morning while eating breakfast on my balcony, I watched frigate birds diving into the water.

The pool and hot tub were great and Dawn Beach is one of the best around. More than any other resort, Oyster Bay provides activities that pull the guests together. The Infinity Restaurant is very good and there are many other good restaurants on the island.

The staff and the entertainment were all top notch. I wouldn't hesitate to stay there again.

For those who like to be in a hot spot, with lots of restaurants and shopping near by, or nighttime action, this location would be disappointing.
It was fine for us, as we wanted time to relax and take things slow. Perfect location for that. Our balcony overlooked the ocean, with constant surf noise, that was muffled at night when we closed door. Other islands were visible from our balcony.
Pelicans made constant runs passed our balcony at dusk.
Poolside service seemed limited.
No room service.
Karaoke night was fun and the manager's party was enjoyable due to the music, free drinks and the dancing.
Rooms seem a little dated, but fresh enough. Sleep quality was good.
Sint Maarten service is different than we are used to seeing. Not very available, unless you ask. Once asked you got friendly smiles and help. More of a German style than a Mexican style.
But as a timeshare resort this one seems about normal, with less to do on resort than larger resorts, and little to do within walking distance.
So to get to shopping, other restaurants or activities you get to take a taxi or drive the narrow streets, up and down the hilly terrain.

Room Tip: Most rooms have great views since one side of the resort faces the ocean and the faces Oyster Pond

OBBR is a well managed resort. The location is great with a gorgeous beach, friendly staff & units that are clean & comfortable. I have owned here since 1995 & return year after year because it is what I expect for my get away to relax & enjoy the beach!

OBBR is our most used timeshare and we are lucky to have been here four weeks this year. Over the years we have seen constant upgrading and expansion and this year the development of the pond side pier project was very exciting. New Condos, a boat pier, and direct access to water activities will make it much easier for people with out cars to do almost anything for their stay on property. The staff is always the best and what makes it so nice to be here. It is a perfect spot for bring friends or family for a remarkable vacation.

Room Tip: Rooms are great on both the oceans and bay side. Owners get their fixed week rooms first so for the...

We visited here with friends and it by far is the best hotel we have visited on the island. I would recommend this hotel. The pool is out of this world. The food is of a high standard. I would advise having a car to look around the island there is do much to do and such lovely sights to see we will be returning

We enjoyed our stay at the Oyster Bay Beach Resort; however, there were a few issues. First, I must say that infinity pool was amazing, the location was excellent and view was spectacular. The view from our room was breathtaking. Most of the staff were very helpful and made our visit very pleasant. The beach was wonderful and the bus tour around the island was pleasant as well. The hotel bar and staff were great.

The hard timeshare sell was a real put off, especially since it was unsolicited. We swapped our timeshare for this location and this is the first time we have encountered this type of pressure sales tactic in any swap. One of the concierge staff was very rude to us after we cancelled our participation in the Oyster Bay Beach Party (we did not want to get stuck in another timeshare selling campaign). The waitress servicing the pool was a bit slow and rude. Our room was clean but worn. There were holes in the furniture and bugs in the kitchen and they ran out of regular coffee. We were told that the building that we were staying in was the last to be renovated and the renovations would be starting after we left.

We may visit again, but want to be sure to ask for a renovated room.

Room Tip: Get a room with a view of the ocean and make sure to ask for a newly renovated room. Also, do not ta...
