For the positives: the bed in our efficiency was comfortable and the linens crisp. The air conditioner worked well. The pool is clean and well tended. The whole place could use a facelift and some TLC. A print in the entry way to our unit was faded and filled with insect eggs. Throw it out!! The towels, which are switched out daily, are all marked with the unit's number. I kept getting a washcloth that looked like someone changed a tire with it. There is not a daily cleaning service, which was fine with us, but I would have liked a broom and dustpan. It was clean upon our arrival, but not pristine. The woman in reception was perfunctorily polite, but no more, but she did loan me a broken down old iron to press off my clothes. There is WiFi, slow, but available for free. Even with a calling card, you are charged for each call (even if your party doesn't answer). The beach is pretty, but the water can be rough. If I were paying full price, I would have turned and run, but we were just paying maintenance on a family member's timeshare. It is quiet and relaxing, but the owner of the complex really needs to update it and make it look nicer.

Room Tip: Ask if any of them are renovated. Ours was from the 1970's.

Ocean Club is tucked away on the beach at Cupecoy. While there is development all around, it remains an isolated sanctuary. Amenities are simple, but the help is friendly and the atmosphere is family-like. The pool is generally quiet, and other parts of Cupecoy Beach, Blue Mall, Fig Restaurant, and Porto Cupecoy are a few minutes away. One small pleasure: many free washing machines throughout mean you can always have a fresh bathing suit, clothes, etc with no hassle.

Room Tip: Try to get a poolside villa, but the "tower," (4 floors) has an elevator and almost every room has a lagoon or ocean view.

We (two adults and two children, 11 and 7) stayed at this property for a week in March 2013.

We did read about the murder there last year, but it appears to have been a targeted attack over a dispute rather than a random attack on tourists. The security appeared adequate and we never felt unsafe during our stay there.

As the title indicates, this is an older property. The elevator in the main building is old and slow. The room also showed signs of wear but was kept clean.

The location is fine if you have a car, otherwise it's not really close to anything other than Cupecoy Bay. If you do intend on exploring the island and you're staying more than a few days you'd probably want to have a car available.

The "beach" adjoining the property has a deck with a nice view from the Cupecoy cliffs, but is not really usable in a traditional beach sense.

The pool area is nice with easy access to the bar/restaurant. The bar and grill is small but fine, with good drink specials daily. The food is simple and solid bar fare.

On Wednesday nights the Jimmy Buffett/all you can eat rib night is hosted there. It is a very good deal food-wise given general food costs on the island, and the ribs compare favorably to restaurants I've been to on the island. A Jimmy Buffett concert video is projected on the screen for viewing.

Overall, this is a quiet low-keyed home base if that suits your lodging needs lodging on SXM. It did for us and we enjoyed our time there.

Room Tip: Room 302 is a studio efficiency with a deck facing the ocean. It is also away from the street and traffic noise. Queen bed and a sleep sofa. Pretty spacious for two, a bit tight for 2 adults and 2 kids.

Not for the young at heart. Very old crowd. You need to hire a car as there is very little in walking distance. Supermarket at Porto Cupecoy (10 minute walk) and a selection of ludicrously overpriced mock pseudo Americanised French restaurants also at the marina. Ignore the nonsense over the murder, it wasn't a random tourist couple murdered, it was a business dispute and he culprits were caught. Security is rock solid, not that anything ever happens. The bar is good craic and the owner Ken adds a bit of youth to the proceedings. Avoid the bar on Wednesday evenings unless you like the atmosphere of sitting in the lounge of an old folks home watching week in, week out repeats of a Jimmy Buffet gig on Anguilla. Dreadful. Food good though, especially breakfast. Service very slow in afternoons as the barmaid also cooks, so she does her best, but can't be in two places at once. Glad we saw it for ourselves, but it'll be our first and last visit. Check the list of rules and fines out first. And found in room? Fined. Dishwasher not emptied on checkout? Fined. The list goes on. It's a very anti smoking hotel. None allowed in rooms or another fine.

Room Tip: 207 where we were was right on the road. Lot of noise from the road.

Just came back from 2 weeks in St. Maarten. Our first week was at Ocean Club Villas. It was our first time at this location. Must admit that I was a bit nervous since we heard about the murder, but figured that security must have been improved as a result. And, we were correct! At night, there was a guard walking the premises with a german shepard. Gate closed, parking pass needed to get in.
Staff? VERY friendly! I had several questions before going down and Noreen at the front desk responded quickly and politely. When we met her in person, she and her other "staffmates" were very friendly. Petra and Rachel and Jason at the bar/grill were delightful. Petra went out of her way to accommodate us during happy hour and for meals. All were very pleasant and outgoing.
We had a two bedroom and had guests with us. Lots of room...bedrooms and baths were large and comfy. Both had new t.v.s as did the family room. Quiet week...not a very noisy crowd (which made us happy). Pool was nice. No real beach but small area to watch the sunsets while enjoying a cocktail. We would definitely return!
