“the Oyster Beach Resort a Paradise in Heaven”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 August 2014

It's an amazing place, and I enjoy day by day. The people in the hotel were friendly and the services were the best. My room had a great view of the Oyester bay. My suit was a comfortable and quiet. I want to come back soon

Room Tip: Corner suits are large and the best

Best timeshare condo on Dawn Beach. Relaxing, clean, fun atmosphere. The staff lives the reputation of "The Friendly Island". You won't want to leave! Plenty of activities if you want to participate. Also have trips to town for reasonable charge so you don't need to rent a car including grocery store trip, casino night and shopping in Phillipsburg. Driving isn't too difficult and provides more freedom to tour the island. Go to Mom and Pop's for Gouda cheese and fresh bakery goods in the am.

Room Tip: Condos above Beau Beau's are on the beach. If you want to see the activities at the bar but not...

Excellent piece of land with beautiful views of the sea and gorgeous marina. Room was great and service outstanding. Good restaurant and relaxing pool makes a spectacular stay. Better if you have a rented car to move to other attractions on the Island.

We just got back from Oyster Bay and had the best vacation ever the staff is friendly, the resort is clean, food is good and they really know how to throw a beach party, right out side the resort there is a market that has the best Apple turnovers but have to be there at 7 to get them they sell out so fast, Walking distance to Beach activities and market, Sparling Gems right past the main entrance to resort good prices and nice jewelry, the resort provides something every day for everyone....I would go back in a heart beat. The only downside was the internet was slow.

Room Tip: We stayed on the Marina side but it is the best of both worlds Pool and Hot tub ocean side and the g...

We chose this resort because they said the reviews were great. We didn't rent a car thinking we would be able to get around by walking or shuttles. Needless to say - we had to rent a car. Got to the resort and they said our room was not ready to check back in 15 minutes or so. 1 hour later our room was ready. The check in area was very chaotic. When getting our packet they rushed through and we didn't ask enough questions. They only touched on their "raffle" and what you could choose as your gift after signing up for the timeshare sales meeting. There are only 2 restaurants on the property and 3 off property. They are all high priced and the food is fair - nothing to brag about. The best food we had was in Gran Case at Sky's the Limit. We were encouraged to take the island tour that the resort offered - it started off good but then turned into a waste of time. We were told that they would stop at a grocery store where we would be able to get some things - that ended up not happening due to traffic and spending too much time in Gran Case due to approx 48 people eating lunch at the same time.
This resort is not centrally located and a typical person can not walk to another destination such as beach or restaurants. If you don't have a car you are at the mercy of the resort. Be sure to bring your cash! Not many places take American Express, Discover or travelers checks and if you chose to use Visa or MasterCard they will up charge you 5%. Philipsburg is the only place we didn't have a problem. Be prepared to pay a "timeshare" charge (ours was $50 in a studio unit), a $5 a day utility charge, tip your maid and then they add a $1 a day charge that you can decline but they want you to pay toward the St Maarten tourism foundation. If you book an excursion thru the resort they will not let you charge it to your room except for the portion that goes to the resort itself. Our Captain Alan snorkeling tour was advertised as $75 per person - $15 was paid to resort and $60 to Captain Alan. If you ask me - that is not very convenient to the customer and can give the impression that the customer is paying more.
If we decide to go back to St Maarten we will definitely do more research on other resorts before going back to Oyster Bay.

Room Tip: A/C units in each room are noisy - sounds like exhaust fan on high. Internet is not reliable - drop...

The Oyster Bay Beach Resort on the Dutch side of the line between this and the French side of the island. The restaurants are both very good and the entrainment is good. The staff is great and the upgrade work to the rooms has been a great thing. The new marina is a great addition.
We have been going there for years and enjoy it more with each of them.
Geary Smith

Room Tip: There is a choice of ocean or marina views, both have advantages.
