We spent the last 2 days of our St. Maarten vacation here. Our room was fabulous, ocean front 1 bedroom.
We were very disappointed in the food here. We felt it was VERY overpriced ($35pp for standard buffet breakfast of premade eggs, pancakes, meats, pastries, etc..Lunch - $24 hamburger, $17 hotdog, $9 bottled water)
We felt the staff at the beach pool should ask the people in the lounge chairs if they needed any drinks/food. We had to walk to the bar and order drinks. We waited 1 hour for our ribs and hot dog to arrive and once we finally got it, the ribs were not great and the hot dog cold. Really?! The manager quickly took my cold plate and I ordered the bolognese in it's place. I expected it to be phenomenal and it was just ok.
I can't recommend this hotel based on the poor value.
