Everything except beach access Not good access to a beach directly at the resort
We had several maintenance issue that we could not get fixed -- air conditioning, toilet, plugged drain. Staff was not responsive.
The water, beach, and friendliness of the staff was outstanding! We especially liked the guys in Aqua Mania who gave us the scoop on the best snorkel site (Divi Bay, with a sunken sailboat, helicopter and submarine!) We had a GREAT room with an awesome view in the newest part of the resort. Resturant choices were not great on property, and the building layout was little confusing.
The hotel was very pretty - nice lobby, good surroundings. Dawn beach is nice and easily accessed from the hotel pool. Food was pretty good and I felt safe staying there. I would come back to this property with friends or family in the future. This is definitely a big hotel and has a resort feel. This is not bad at all but if you are looking for peace and quiet you should go elsewhere. There were large parties of family reunions and other gatherings. Sometimes they were quite loud. Again not a drawback unless you are looking for something more quaint. My only real complaint was that the dinner service on my first night at ocean was quite slow. And the server for the pool bar kept hitting on me and would not take the hint to leave me alone.
Nice rooms for the money in a very active area with lots of bars and resturants within walking distance. Two small problems with the room were quickly attended to.
Great place to stay. Great room for the money and was very relaxing. Long lines at check out. Pool was closed during stay for renovations.
tranquility and privacy of the hotel and ammenities Yes this was its check out time of 10:00 AM
We spent our 3rd time on the island. This hotel was just perfect for us. Excellent location in Simpson Bay makes it superb on one hand, the other hand the beach is great, we had an oceanview room with lookout to the airport and the white sand beach of the hotel. The room is nicely furbished with cool kitchen facilities (really fully equipped). We would absolutely recommend staying here! The toilet gave wicked sounds (something like vacuum)
the studio was excelent. In the studio was everything from a spoon till what you don't can imagine The beach and the pool. I think that the housekeeper have to clean the studio even twice when you stay their.
The Flamingo is right on the water, within walking distance of great places to eat, yet very private...during off season Simpson Bay is still active with plenty of restaurants to choose from... Need waitstaff taking orders on the beach...both beaches....would have ordered drinks and food if they would have been roaming the beaches..during off season there are still people looking for that.
Friendliness of staff, cleanliness, location of resort and amenities of surrounding area.
the closeness to the room and being in room 7103 I would of liked a bit more entertainment by the pool
Friendliness,restaurants,casino close by
location was great Mold on the ceiling tile, broken toilet, broken air conditioner, we stayed for a week through RCI and had a greatroom, the one night through you was awful
location near Sunset bar friendly bartenders good drinks friendly, helpful bellmen terrible odor from sewage plant - in room and in outdoor restaurants view of sewage plant mediocre food unfriendly waitstaff
Rooms were spacious and clean. Water pressure was excellent for showers. Staff were very friendly. The noise from the construction in process. The closed art gallery on premises. The smoke filled casino.
Everything was either falling apart or under construction. The food was also not good.
Best part was the location and I was lucky to get one of the newly renovated rooms. Shaquile customer service was excellent! Food was great at the Point and Palms Grill. Airplane feature added great excitement. Tuesday night BBQ was a lot of fun Some staff were not very friendly. There was a lot of wastage of food, and when I asked for half portions of items on the menu eg Nachos - I was told they only do full portions....even if I wanted only meat they still gave fries....too much wastage of food that can be managed by the waitress with proper training and simple questions eg do you want fries with both of your orders? etc Gym needs serious upgrades, there was no water and very poor variety of free weights...max was a 20 pound
Near airport Old and tired. Food was average. Beverages notch better
Lovely bar and restaurant space on the beachside of the hotel. Great breakfast, cocktails and bar food - the best we ate and drank in Philipsburg. Sea view rooms are a good size, modern, clean, great bathroom, small fridge, wooden floors. All staff very friendly and helpful. At breakfast you can order fresh eggs etc from a menu on the table but no one told us or offered it so we missed out for the first 3 days. Location is great for a couple of days but not the best holiday location on the island. Once cruise ships leave around 6 pm the area closes down. The city view room on 3rd floor that we stayed in on our last night before flying out was cheaper but not as nice as ocean view - pay the extra.
The Atrium was great for us as we had stayed there before. It is a relaxing way to enjoy St Martens. It is on the beach, close to the airport and is so well located that we did not need a car. We had a great view of the Bay and mountains from our room. The WiFi reception was sketchy at times. Car traffic on the main road near the Atrium has really turned into gridlock for most of the day from one end of the island to the other on the Dutch side.
Great resort, clean, comfortable and safe. First time in lower floor room was nothing special a little dated but the staff makes up for it. Friendly and welcoming. Great for the money we spent per night, didn't have a view
Loved that it was a studio with a fully stocked kitchen. Our housekeeper was a fantastic woman who did a great job and helped direct us around the hotel when we needed something. All of the staff was accommodating and kind. Hot water was intermittent, but with the warm weather, it wasn't too big a deal.
The staff was very friendly and helpful. Perfect location, within walking distance of several restaurants. The room we rented needs an update. New tile, new bathroom facilities. The internet worked in our room sporadically. Several guests plus ourselves had to go down to the lobby if we wanted good connection.
Lovely staff, amazing location, a bit quirky. If you love history and a bit of character, this is the place for you. Breakfast was on their amazing terrace overlooking the beach and promenade, from where you could enjoy the breezes while watching the port area come alive. Overall a very local and authentic spot.
Lovely hotel right on the boardwalk, but not noisy at night. Wonderful balcony for people and ship watching. Restaurant served really good food, though mixed drinks were expensive. Parking was very near by and free.
It is an excellent location, convenient to all areas. It is surrounded by excellent eating areas and bars, It is within walking distance of many entertainment venues. Mosquitoes were everywhere. (It has been a very rainy season.)
All the hotel guests were friendly. The rooms were comfortable and relaxing. Ideal for a family vacation as well as romance. We plan to stay there again. Most of the staff were not friendly, especially the front desk staff. The absence of daily maid service, but we made do. The pool was being renovated during our stay.
The rooms were spacious and nicely appointed - each with a gorgeous ocean view. The onsite restaurant was mediocre but there are several excellent restauraunts within a 3 minute walk.
very nice hotel,clean,perfect location,enjoyable
Everything was clean and comfy. Convenient location to shopping and restaurants. Pool theme was "tropical fun." Did not like the fact that the only place for WIFI was the hotel lobby!
I love the location. The view is awesome No
The appartment was superb, 2 bedrooms and a large livingroom and kitchen. overlooking the Simpson bay.Within walkingdistance there are several restaurants. The staff was very friendly. The only problem (not regarding the hotel itself) was the awful traffic jam because they are working on the Welfare road until december 2011.
Close to airport and quiet Restaurant was closed for the low season and I was told the pool bar would be open in the am for coffee and such in the am. The pool bar was closed until noon and I had to walk off the property to get coffe
Staff friendly, grounds clean, spacious rooms
Nothing The hotel is dirty, it smells of mold. I had a horrible experience.
Pool restaurant On arrival no TV, no coffee maker, no towels, and an air conditioning leaking water all over the floor inside. Will never stay again or refer to anyone
Location was great. Design of hotel and condition of room was good - tile floors, nice kitchen with SS appliances & marble bath. Concierge, was excellent. The resort has great potential - basically I like it and will return again. Room smelled moldy, convenience store in lower level was permanently closed, light fixture broken, bar/restaurant was closed for the slow season. Staff needs training in providing an excellent experience for guests as they seemed a little disinterested.
This guest did not leave comments about this hotel.
Great view Ac didn't ever get cold, hotel smells musty, bar ran out of local beer when there were no customers
