I stayed at Summit Hotel in Sint Maarten (St. Martin) recently.
The hotel is located like 10 minutes from the airport on the Dutch side of the island.
The best of the trip was the room we had at our hotel, that was over the top. One more thing is the breath taking view from Sunset beach restaurant at Maho beach when the 747 jumbo jets land at Princess Juliana International Airport. You need to see that if you go to St Maarten.
The Summit hotel is very nice and has the most welcoming staff. The rooms have a complete small kitchen with even a dishwasher! The beds are very comfortable and the bathrooms very clean. You can get a water view room or partial water view to the lagoon (not the ocean).
The only thing that I didn't especially like is that the hotel is located in an area where you cannot find many taxis or public transportation easily. You have top ay US$15 as the minimum taxi fare any where you go. You could walk to a couple of beaches that are located like about a mile (hilly roads) from the hotel, not bad at all either.
If you go to the French side of the island called Marigot, everything changes! People are extremely rude and arrogant, they all want to steal your money making prices double or triple.
There is not much to see on the French side anyway.
This hotel is excellent for honeymooners' or families with children. They have a happy hour by the bar at the pool with excellent local cocktails and snacks.
Rooms have internet connection free of charge if you bring your laptop.
They do a very good job with housekeeping and take care of you. The front desk office is closed after 11 pm.
I recommend this hotel for your trips to St Maarten, a beautiful Dutch island on the Caribbean.
