Relax in a secluded paradise

We stayed in a studio on the marina side, 3rd floor, and loved it! The room was just perfect for the 2 of us. Plenty of amenities in the kitchenette and the view of the bay was lovely sitting on our balcony. Daily maid service was an unexpected but welcome bonus. All the activities held poolside and in the courtyard are so fun and happy hour at the bar is not to be missed. Everyone is very friendly, not only the staff but also the guests! We met many guests that have come to this resort for 12, 15, even 20 years or more and that says alot about the resort. We learned that next time we would rent a car. There are 37 different beaches on the island and all are open to the public. Yes, the roads are narrow and steep but I figure we can manage. Because the resort is rather isolated from the hustle and bustle of the city (a plus! because it's nice and quiet, relaxing), it's a pricey cab ride to go site-see or get to activity locations such as sailings or boat rides to Anguilla, etc. Even going into town for groceries would be good as the store nearby is fairly expensive. We just ate out all the time which kind of defeats the purpose of having a kitchen. So, if you want to be treated like family, enjoying the beautiful scenery that St. Maarten has to offer, in a quiet, relaxing atmosphere, Oyster Bay Beach Resort is the place to go! You won't be sorry and you'll want to return for more fun, just like we will!

Relaxed in Paradise

We had a great time. Me and my husband, traded through Interval International. I would reccommend this hotel. Rooms: great! daily maid service was an unexpected perk Location: cannot be beat, just beautiful. near to a marina, at least 4-5 restaurants/food nearby, small grocery store nearby Amenities: the pool was smaller than we thought from the photo, but it was very nice, perfect for our needs and we never had trouble finding a chair Staff: super friendly, every single time Yes there's a seaweed problem right now, but it's like that for everything on the east coast of the island. Rent a car (Thrifty/Dollar) and drive to the other side. We had a fantastic week!

Poor customer service, poor room conditions

We are Interval International members and own a one bedroom suite in Aruba. We decided to transfer a week to St Maarten as we heard good things about the island. Yesterday, we checked in to Oyster Bay Beach Resort. The first problem we ran into was that we were given a studio. We own a one bedroom, transferred at the one bedroom rate, and are eligible for a two bedroom. Once we told the front desk, we had to wait about 30 minutes before they changed our room. The new room was in the center of the resort with a view of the parking lot and above the maintenance garage. The sliding door to the bathroom was completely broken and would not close. Maintenance said they could not fix it and would come back the next day to fix it. By 2pm, no one had come. Additionally, the sliding door to the balcony did not work, some of the fixtures in the bathroom were rusted, the windows were dirty, and there was no ice machine in the freezer. We were told we had to bring the bucket to the bar to get ice. Today we went back to the front desk because we did not want a bathroom with a door that didn't close the entire week. We were given a choice to change rooms but were told it was the only one bedroom left on the property. It is a handicapped room and we are currently fighting off mosquitoes in the room. I've gotten about 5 bites as I write this review. Not once during this fiasco, did anyone offer a solution, an apology, or even a complimentary drink. Their website shows that there are two bedroom suites available. The customer service here is dreadful and the room conditions are incredibly outdated. If anyone is considering this hotel, I would highly recommend looking elsewhere. PS - the beach here is covered in seaweed so your only option is the pool but there are not enough chairs to accommodate all guests.

Home away from home

I have just returned from the Oyster Bay Resort, in St. Maarten, celebrating my 15th year. here-it gets better all the time. I might seem like a broken record, its always a pleasure to be " back home " again.The entire staff ( all departments up to the owners) make you feel as if you are part the the " family ". In all my trips there ( twice a year- February and July) I cannot remember a bad experience-if there was a problem, it was promptly corrected. As usual our accommodations were great-we have fixed weeks with fixed units-mostly two bedrooms lock-outs-great weather, and a comforting breeze-we are approximately 25 feet from the ocean. Rain, almost non-existent-either a shower late at night or a sprinkle in the early am. I would suggest for those that have not been here, to try it out, and perhaps down the road, you too can celebrate years of a pleasurable experience.and become " family " Until February/2018.................

The Best Vacation Destination

In all our travels this resort is by far the best value on the island. The friendly people. Great service. Clean current rooms and good food at a decent price. they offer something to do everyday and have contacts for any excursion on the island. The Beach Party on Thursday is a do not miss event. The infinity edge pool over looks the Atlantic with St. Barts in the distance. Happy Hour everyday from 4-6 is always a busy place. We love the sun and the beach. St. Maarten is the place and Oyster Bay is the stop.
