The timeshare is set up so everyone has a great beach view, and they try to accomodate if you prefer ground floor versus a higher level. There are only 4 levels, so it's pretty small.Resort Experience:The entire hotel is all suites: 2 bedrooms, 2 baths, living room, kitchen (galley) and dining area, but the best part is a full balcony overlooking the Caribbean. Not one of the deals where you lean out and crane your neck for a glimpse, but every room in the place overlooks the beach.
We love waking up in the morning, putting up a pot of coffee and watching from our balcony as the cruise ships come in.
Of course, the sunsets from the beach bar downstairs at happy hour are pretty magnificent too, after a hard day of shopping or relaxing at the beach!
There's a small market on premises where you can buy basic groceries (you can even order ahead and they'll stock your refrigerator for a fee!) or a real supermarket only a block or so away.
What I really like about this place is that it's off the beaten path. It's private, so nobody comes there unless they know about it, so its great for families with kids, but it's so close to town that you don't feel like you're out in the boondocks either.
Philipsburg is less than one mile away, you can walk there if you want to, though I don't recommend it, and there you will find Front Street, where every store window glitters with incredible duty free jewelry to purchase. If you prefer, the liquor, cigarettes and perfumes are also a good buy.
The French side is only a short drive away, less and a half hour, depending on traffic. If you go to Marigot, Wednesday is market day, and that's a lot of fun.
