Gorgeous hotel, excellent staff, food was expensive but great. Not happy about being pressured to take the 90 minute tour to try to encourage us to buy time share at the hotel.

Great experience all around. The only negative was that we signed up for a group jog and our running guide didn't show up. The fitness room was a decent alternative however.

This is an incredible resort. They are in the process of rebuilding from the hurricane...should be complete in the spring. Great location and amenities...located in an area without crowds..terrific pools and beach

Beware of slick salesmanship

We purchased 49 vacation weeks with a one week bonus week at the Dawn Beach Hotel. We are required to use that bonus week during 2019. The problem is the Hotel has not been rebuilt and may not be reopened until 2021, maybe even later. My wife and I were planning on using one of our vacation weeks at a Dawn Beach condo back to back with the bonus week in 2019. Obviously, that is impossible because of the damage caused by Hurricane Irma and delays in reconstruction of the resort. We understand that. So, we started negotiating with representatives of Dawn Beach to see what they could offer to compensate us for having to cancel and delay our plans. Basically, Dawn Beach is not able to perform its obligations under the contract that we entered with that company. We informed each Dawn Beach representative that we were passed around to that we just wanted what we were paying for, that we were not interested in purchasing any additional weeks or paying for fixed weeks or upgrading what we already have. We just wanted to know how they intended to compensate us for not being able to deliver under the contract. Instead, we got a high pressure sales pitch. The compensation "offer" consisted of each representative trying to sell us something that we didn't want, upgrades that would cost us over ten thousand dollars. Dawn Beach cannot deliver under our current contract and will not compensate us for inconvenience, delays in our vacation plans and and related problems. But they have no problem with taking our money. Their answer to our situation: "Just give us more money ". NOT GOING TO HAPPEN! V. McClain, Colorado

This hotel is on the Dutch side of the island on Dawn Beach. It is approximately 30 minutes from Princess Juliana International Airport. Our room was a simple yet modern with a side view of the beach. The hotel offers basic Wi-Fi for free on the property if you want the higher speed connection you will have to pay an extra fee to access it. The beach is clean with plenty of lounge chairs. The staff was attentive, offered personalized service, and they were always friendly. The food served at the restaurants offers an excellent variety, and it was tasty. We suggest you rent a car so that you can venture out onto the French side of the island. We found that side to be livelier. The biggest con of this property was the Time Share trap, although we said “no” several times they refused to accept that answer and we found ourselves dodging them constantly.

One of the best resorts on the island

The resort is a little difficult to get to the airport ( the roads are bad) , but once you are there, I found little reason to leave. The restaurant is good bars are excellent, including a swim-in pool bar. The staff is very friendly and the views are excellent, although water is rougher than some other resort. I found the views of the outstanding and very relaxing. There are several other outstanding restaurants in Oyster Pond that you can actually walk to along the beach. If you don't mind stepping out of the water as some segments are still undeveloped.

We survived Hurricane Irma! Staff was Amazing!

We arrived in St Maarten on 9/2/17, were mesmerized by the beautiful teal water and sunny skies as we landed by airplane. We obtained a rental car (definitely recommended on this island) and drove to the Dawn Beach Club on the Dutch Atlantic side of the island. At the Dawn Beach Club, we had a 3 bedroom timeshare unit reserved for our party of 6. My husband & I traveled with my parents and my Mom's sister & her husband. The buildings sat on the hillside, located on the same property as the Westin Dawn Beach Resort, and shared amenities. The 3 bedroom unit was spectacular, with beautiful views of the Atlantic Ocean! The next day we learned that what was a Tropical Storm, was now a Hurricane, growing in size and heading more south towards St Maarten. We had a Breakfast meeting with Glenny who gave us lots of tips on how to prepare (she went above & beyond!) She even let us follow her by car to find one the Islands few large grocery stores. Flights were scarce to "get off the island" so we knew we had to prepare. We bought lots of bottled water, non-perishables and flashlights. We didn't get to experience a lot of the island d/t preparations and so much traffic as everyone else was scurrying to buy things. On Tuesday 9/5, the Westin Dawn Beach Resort offered to move us into the Hotel portion as they had a generator and building would be safer. Since we were a party of 6 and some members had health issues, the Westin gave us the Presidential Suite so that we could all be together! This evening, with the approaching powerful storm, The Westin Dawn prepared a wonderful meal, free of charge, for all the guests staying at the resort! We were told by Management that the storm was to hit in the wee hours of the morning. When the intensity magnified, they would come around, knock on everyone's door, and have us evacuate our rooms and move to a centralized middle meeting room or stairwell. On Wed 9/6, around 4-5 am, the powerful Hurricane was pounding on the shores and blowing fierce winds. The loud whistling winds woke us up; you could hear the inner hallway doors rattling it was so loud! We soon heard a knock on the door and were evacuated to an inner board meeting room. We had power at 1st, but soon lost the generator and all power. There were many families crammed into this meeting room, it was dark, hot and scary. We could feel the walls vibrating behind us! A few small battery powered lanterns gave us light. The Hotel staff was simply amazing! During the thick of the storm, they all remained calm! They served us pastries, coffee & juice for breakfast and sub sandwiches, chips and plenty of bottled water for lunch. We were in this small room for over 6 hours! After the storm ended, there was great devastation to the entire Island! The Hotel took a huge beating, had water flooding the floors, no electricity, no air conditioning, no elevators, barely any running water which eventually ran out. The rooms closest to the beach were destroyed, as well as the Timeshare units on the hillside, where we were 1st staying. We were very fortunate that the Westin staff moved us to the Hotel! The staff continued to serve us FREE, 3 HOT MEALS A DAY and plenty to drink. They heated everything by gas power! The Management frequently updated everyone, either by posting messages in the lobby or by word of mouth as they frequently walked through the wet, dark halls. I have never been anywhere where I experienced such caring staff members! I wish I could remember all their names! My heart broke for several staff's families, who continued to serve, while they lost everything that they owned (however they were all safe!!) We truly appreciated Dan Szydlowski, the Regional Manager! He was clearly visible for days, and updated us on evacuation as soon as he heard anything. On Sat 3/9, we were finally evacuated by US Military Aircraft and flown to San Juan, PR, as Hurricane Jose was approaching St Maarten that evening! Prior to our rescue, Dan gave us his business card and told us to notify him when we are home safe! He physically stayed at the resort until all the guests were rescued then was rescued to San Juan just like everyone else! I emailed him after we arrived home and left our phone #. That same day, we received a personal call from Dan! He even remembered us personally & the rooms that we were staying in! We never felt abandoned at all! The staff was clearly visible and so kind! As we stood in long lines waiting to board the rescue planes, we heard from many other people staying at other resorts/hotels who simply were abandoned! They had not eaten for days! Though this hotel is currently rebuilding entirely, I would highly recommend staying here after reopening!
