Hotel was not too large, everything close by and convenient to get to. The Great Bay location is excellent, very picturesque. The hotel was within walking distance to Philipsburg- the main shopping district (10-15 minutes). Staff was friendly and made stay enjoyable.
"Great hotel In front of the Beach/Weekend Get Away"
Stayed for the weekend, very very close to the beach. Big room as well as bathroom. Has a mini kitchen with microwave and a refrigerator. Lots of shops near by, some open only when the cruise ship is in town. The locals are very friendly. There is a taxi stop very near to the hotel. Will come back and stay at the hotel. Love it!
After getting the reservations sorted out, our stay was quite enjoyable. The staff was very friendly and helpful. The convenience to transportation, shopping and restaurants was great. If you are visiting St Maarten for the first time, I would recommend a stay in the heart of downtown Phillipsburg. One day I forgot to hang up the phone after a call and was charged over $1,000 for the call. The hotel realizing the mistake removed the amount from my bill at checkout.
The hotel is older, but if you like to relax it's the place to be. They have some activities planned if you want to partake or you can go on your own. The activities director has a list of the recommended places to fulfill your wishes. There are boat trips, plane trips, shopping trips and trips to other islands. We enjoyed a trip to Pinel Island for the day, shopping in Phillipsburg, renting a car makes getting around easy (but the drivers and parking are crazy). The French side of island is also to be enjoyed (just have to remember that some of the shops there close at 2:00 and open again about 4:00). The food is great allover the island.

The capital of Dutch St. Maarten, Philipsburg is a bustling city with shops, restaurants, nightlife, and hotels. A popular tourist attraction is Fort Amsterdam, a 17th century Dutch military outpost. Though all military communications ceased in the 19th century, it was used as a signaling and communications station until sometime in the 1950s.
