Oyster Bay Beach Resort

Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 16 March 2014

We just got back from one of the best trips we have ever taken. Oyster Bay Beach Resort is amazing. From the moment we walked in, to the time we left, everyone was friendly, and courteous towards all the guests. Thank you to Jennifer, Bernadette, Terri, and Greg!!!! No complaints or criticism what so ever about the hotel, grounds and beach. Food was great, both at Infinity, and Beau Beau's. Busby's beach bar, and Daniels by the Sea is worth going to as well. Just a short walking distance. Fresh croissants in the morning at the local convenience store were good as well. Make sure you book a 1/2 day or 6 hour snorkeling with Captain Allen's at the marina, right in front of the main entrance. All in all, we were very pleased, and recommend OBBR. We are not timeshare people, but our room for the week was very accommodating for 2 people.

Room Tip: Try and book a room with ocean/pool view. You will not be disappointed.

We just got back from a week stay at Oyster Bay. This was our first visit to the island and the Oyster Bay Beach Resort was beautiful. We stayed in my parents time share and had a two bedroom unit right on the ocean. The staff was wonderful as they helped with our 30th anniversery renew vows. They were very helpful and made it very special for us. The rooms were comfortable, the staff fantastic, and the resort was quiet. My husband and I had a craving for ice cream and everything was closed so the bartender was able to secure 2 ice cream sundaes for us, what a great treat.

Room Tip: Rooms located over the ocean or harbor

This was a timeshare trade so we weren't sure what we would get. Had booked 2 Studios but friends backed out. Nela at check in exchanged it for a beautiful 3rd floor 1 bedroom overlooking Dawn beach. Tyrese made sure we got situated, Latoya kept our place spotless and Johan kept us comfy at the beach. Great food. An amazing week!

Oyster Bay Beach Resort (OBBR) is on the border between the French and Dutch side of the island, away from the mega resorts, traffic, cruise ships, etc., on the Dutch side, but close enough by car to conveniently reach any part of the island. In the Oyster Pond area, there are 6-7 restaurants, from casual beach/or dock side venues to more upscale establishments. OBBR has a beautiful infinity pool and is located right on Dawn Beach, which is our favorite on the island. In short, you can't beat the location.
Other pluses include updated rooms and well maintained grounds. Special kudos to the cleaning ladies, who do a thorough job day in and day out (with a lot of steps to climb) and are prompt in responding to any additional needs. (Note: This is primarily a timeshare resort. We stayed in a one bedroom unit.) The kitchen is well stocked with the necessary utensils and appliances. For those without a car, the resort does provide van service a couple of days a week to nearby markets.
The restaurants, Infinity and Beau Beau's are a mixed bag. The level of service and food vary, but there are plenty of other choices nearby.
There is entertainment, usually a welcome and farewell reception, nightly music and other activities. However, this resort does not cater to small children.
We do have three suggestions for improvement. Today, most upscale, as well as two or three star resorts, provide free wifi. Not OBBR. It's free in the main lobby/courtyard area, but will cost you extra if you wish to connect in your room. We had problems with the connection in our room and insisted on a credit to our bill, which wasn't easy since the tech guy was never around to assist. OBBR needs to step up to the plate and join the vast majority of resorts that provide free wifi. The timeshare owners pay a handsome annual maintenance fee, so this should be a given. Second, on Dawn Beach, some guests "reserve" a chair and umbrella early in the morning by placing a towel and a book on each chair, then disappear until later in the morning. We saw one guest who was part of a group "reserve" eleven chairs! This is grossly unfair, and although the resort has a rule that politely discourages this conduct, it is not enforced. Lastly, personnel at the concierge desk, while knowledgeable, tend to be curt and impatient. A little retraining here would be helpful.
We have been to OBBR many times in the past, and would definitely continue to recommend it to others visiting St. Maarten/Martin.

Room Tip: Rooms overlooking Dawn Beach and the ocean, of course, have the best views. However, be aware that...

We just returned from OBBR after a two week stay. It's a great place to relax, laugh and enjoy. Everyone from the front desk to the pool & beach staff are friendly and accommodating. Laughs are plenty listening to David & Edith at the bar. We've been going to this resort for over 10 years & it has always proven to rejuvenate us. The spa is wonderful too! This is a wonderful resort on a friendly island. Looking forward to our trip next year!

This is our home away from home. Staff are very accommodating, friendly, and feel like family. View is perfect whether you love ocean or marina. We stayed 3 weeks this year and every day was perfect. Oyster Bay is perfect for relaxation or if you like activities.

Room Tip: Rooms on marina side are quieter
