Michael sat down with us, found out what we were interested in seeing and doing, and made notes on a map. Michael provided information listing several places to eat, and they were all wonderful. This added a nice personal touch. He also... More

When determining where to stay during our visit to St Maarten our budget presented two choices: glitz and glamour for a week or comfort and convenience for two weeks. Guess which one we went for?!
