“Best Value on St Maarten”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 January 2012

Where else on St Maarten can you get a greater deal then this? I stayed at this hotel on a business trip (August 2009) with two other persons. We got an amazing deal for the 5 days we had there. We had a 2 bedroom accommodation near to the pool nearer to the beach. The furnishing were all state of the art: granite counter tops, stainless steel appliances, soft comfy beds, lots of closet space, clean environment and peace and quiet. Free and secure parking and 24 hour security. Paradise!!!!
Strategically located near to a small grocery/deli on the other side of the street, breakfast and lunch can be had at a price that wont break your pockets. Had a really great time. For the "romantics" there is a small cave on the beach below. A great value for the price.
PS: When you see the advertised prices, you may think you cant afford, but call the place and you will be surprised at the deals you will get, especially in the off season. Enjoy.

So pleased you enjoyed your stay...hope you can come back and visit again. The condos here at Rainbow are privately owned (it is not a hotel) and there are many beautiful units available for rent at very reasonable rates; some are listed on VRBO.com . Thank you for sharing your review.

Excellent two bedroom and beautiful grounds. Near all-good restaurants, casino, beach. Spiral staircase down to beach is a long climb,but the pools are great. Security at the front gate can be tough , but they are there 24/7. The kitchen was clean and well equiped, stainless and granite. Will return next year

We're pleased to hear you enjoyed our stay. The spiral staircase is a little long but it worth it once you get down to the private beach and crystal clear water. Have you been back since your last visit? There are many beautiful oceanfront condos available for rent by owners; some on VRBO. Hope you make it back soon and thank you for taking the time to write your review.

After having been to SXM many times, this was the first time staying at the Rainbow Beach Club. For $99 the value is outstanding and can not be beat. The room was huge, very nicely furnished, spotlessly clean. Grounds and pool area were also very clean and well kept. Myonie was super friendly and organized, waiting for our arrival with keys in envelope. Will definitely stay here again.

Wow. $99 per night (off season) We were blow away by the quality of this place. Spotlessly clean, room serviced daily (thank you Sofia) fabulous views great pool and private/semi private beach, great security, especially Julie, thank you for your smiley face, Room was faultless, queen bed, dining, lounge, full kitchen, double sink bathroom seperate toilet/shower and a bidet, washing machine and dryer. Great views, free secure parking and in a great location (we like it quiet), 1 minute walk to casino complex with many restuarants etc.. Step out of room into pool and beach was wonderfull. Myonie was great to deal with, we kept extending our stay and she accomodated us with pleasure. Can't imagine staying anywhere else.

I stayed at rainbow beach club for 2 weeks with my family and I heard about some altercations the management was having with some of its owners. Apparently the owners of the condos are suing the management over some fee-related issues. Because of this they decided to keep the lights turned off in the hallways, and as a result my family and I felt extremely unsafe. We took to carrying around a flashlight. I also am aware that some tenants that live there have been hassled by the management. This went so far that the corrupt island "police" came and hassled them also. Although superficially it may seem like a nice place to stay...I would never bring my family back here into this unsafe environment.

I see it's been several years since your visit to Rainbow Beach Club....so much has changed!

Sorry to hear you had an unpleasant experience during your stay. As in your case, no lights in the hallways & police activity.

We had a very unusual circumstance at Rainbow Beach Club, in that the developer wrote the condo documents in such a way that he voted himself in as the manager for life. You can imagine the conflict that this would create.

Over the last several years, subsequently, the homeowners association went to court to have the right to hire a management company of their choice; of which the HOA won a decisive victory. In the beginning of the transition, there was a great deal of conflict. The owners had no advance notice of what was going to take place by the previous manager/developer; which included the turning off of hallway lights.

Since the late fall of 2012 the new management company has had gained complete control of the facility, including pool maintenance, security, trash removal, upkeep of grounds. You can see by recent reviews that the issues prior to that time frame have been completely resolved. The new management company has done nothing short of a fantastic job in bringing Rainbow Beach Club back to it’s full potential.

We hope you will reconsider Rainbow Beach Club when visiting St. Maarten in the future. Thank you.

We arrived for a week stay to celebrate our 25th anniversary. We liked the fact it was gated with 24 hr security. We liked the parking garage so we could keep things in the car without having to carry them all around. We took the elavator up one flight and walked across bridge to our room. We couldn't believe the view from our balcony which was amazing. It allowed us to relax after a day of sight seeing and watch the sunset over the ocean or experience the breeze at night. The rooms were spacious, the bathrooms clean and big along with a kichen, dining room and living room. The private beach was unbelievable with a huge cave so you could get out of the sun when necessary. We had plenty of privacy. The only drawbacks were there is no restaurant on site and pools weren't taken care of but that was because it was off season. We liked this place so much we are coming back again for 2 weeks.

I see it's been several years since your last visit to Rainbow Beach Club. Wanted to thank you for your review from your last stay. We now have a new management company and the pools are kept clean year round. As you may know, the condos are all privately owned...it's not a hotel so there are no restaurants or stores located on the property. However, as I'm sure you found out during your stay, there are several within walking distance. We hope you come back soon! There are some great Rainbow Beach Club rentals on VRBO.com should you want to visit again.

This is an excellent place to stay. We booked a one-bed apartment in the 'Tennis Block'.
It was lovely-very spacious, with good views over the ocean.

The standard of equipment and furnishing is very high. The kitchen is well equiped with fridge/freezer, dishwasher ,washing machine, dryer etc. An electric kettle would have been useful, though.

The staff are extremely friendly and helpful and the security is very good.

We went during the quiet season and virtually had the place to ourselves. The pool areas and gardens were spotless and very well maintained.

The RBC is situated just opposite The Atlantis Casino complex, so it's not far to walk if you want to eat/drink locally. Alternatively, taxis and buses pull up regularly outside the Atlantis.

The building is in its final phase of construction so there is still some work going on to the front of the property. This factor did not affect us at all. We barely heard a sound.

The only negative points were that the design of the studio meant that the bedroom and bathroom seemed a bit small in comparison with the rest of the apartment. Each apartment has it's own, rather small, hot water cylinder. So if you're planning a long, hot shower-forget it.

Cupecoy itself is in a bit of a construction phase,too. At the moment there is quite a bit of work going on including the construction of a shopping mall and the completion of the Cupecoy Yacht Club. It should be nice when it's finished. If you have seen pictures of a long sandy beach at Cupecoy-forget that too! The sea erosion has reduced it to a couple of very small coves and the longer stretch of beach to the western end is now overlooked by a beachfront housing complex.

Overall, we had a great holiday and we would go back tomorrow if we could.

  • Liked — Standard of equipment and location
  • Disliked — Small hot water cylinder!

So we see it's been several years since your stay at Rainbow Beach Club. Thank you for your previous review. The construction at Rainbow has been complete for several years now. The mall & Cupecoy Yacht Club are complete as well. All of the units at Rainbow Beach Club are privately owned so you'll find that the furnishing & supplies will vary in each. If you have any special requests such as an electric kettle, it might be good to check in advance. The beaches here in SXM certainly do change with the weather but with 34 on the island, you're bound to find one to your liking. There are several Rainbow Beach Club rentals available on VRBO.com should you decide to visit the island again. Hope to see you soon!
