Orient Bay Beach
The rooms were clean the staff was relatively friendly It is a timeshare organization so they're going to give you a bedroom to begin with and then you will upgrade if you listen to their presentation which they say is 90 minutes and last for 5 hours
Location, views Front desk staff is rude. Concierge service is useless and incompetent at best. The road and landscaping need to be better maintained.
Nice place and A/C kept the room nice and cool , friendly and helpful staff. Very close to the airport. There were several bars with a large drink menu. That I had to wait till almost 8pm to check in . I arrived at 7pm and you would think the rooms would be ready to go. Secondly on Saturday night they had 2 restaurants closed for a wedding and a 3rd didn't open till 9pm.
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
one lady at the activities desk by the beach was less than helpful and sometimes was hardly friendly. It is difficult to try to book a trip for the day when she seems annoyed at helping, and is less than happy to answer questions regarding the trips.
The bed lines were very clean They charged me a $10.50 reaort fee per day, when my Kayak reservation said everything was paid in full.The walls are super thin, so you heard everything in the halls. The concierge desk called at 830am. It took me over an hour to get checked in. They have a pretty early checkout if 10am
The accommodations are a very good value for the money. Being right in the middle of everything is a nice feature at night, you can walk to the bars/restaurants, shopping, marina for boating activities. The staff is very good, especially the bell hops (the one exception is the on property bar/restaurant, which is not affiliated with the resort...that staff needs a major overhaul). The apartment amenities are probably some of the best I've seen if you want or need the comforts of home. It was very clean. The beds are comfortable, the pillows are nice, the appliances are all modern and the kitchen was very well appointed. TVs in all rooms, with decent enough cable. Security on the beach and in the resort in general is very good, and its also a necessity considering the location. This resort is for families and snowbirds on extended leave.. The beach is absolutely HORRIBLE. Its man made. The water is very very dirty, theres nothing but muck and rocks to stand on when you go in the water. The sand you see in the pictures is dirt, not sand. I didnt realize how dirty the water was til i went in - ONCE. I dunked once and became drastically sick. Its a sewer. There are a ton of large boats moored just offshore. While scenic to view from your deck, I am betting all that muck and murk in the water is bilge leakage. The pool is small and totally overrun with the whining elderly and screaming children. This is a timeshare complex that caters to long term snow bird renters who are looking for value, and families that want to let their kids run wild while they sit in a chair and ignore them. NOT my idea of a carribean vacation. If your priority is a beach vacation where being on a white sand beach with that beautiful carribean water, make another choice. We spent the remaining days on the other side of the island. Also, the island itself has changed drastically, its downright dirty now. Lots of jamaican peddlers and beggers. I have made my last trip to st. martin.
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.)
No knowledgeable staff around. Old building, out of date.
