Checked in for three days (prepaid) after a very long day at 7:30 PM. The check-in process was done by a very unfriendly lady who made us feel like we were bothering her. She did not offer us a lock for our safe. When we got to the room, we noticed it was a very old safe and appeared to...

We stayed here before and after chartering a boat from Sunsail, which is located at the marina on the premises. So the location was our primary driver for choosing Captain Olivers, The rooms are a bit dated and slightly run down, but perfectly adequate. Spring for the ocean view rooms. The views are spectacular, much, much better than the marina...

I have stayed here several times over the last 15 years. The resort is dated and could use more updating, however it does have the caribbean feel with a european influence. The parking is nice and secure in a guarded and gated lot. The signature restaurant is very good with an extensive menu. I believe it is Saturday nights when...

Captain Oliver's Hotel is so very perfect for the French/Dutch island of St.Martin. The atmosphere, the management, and personnel are very professional and most anxious to make each and every guest comfortable. The ocean view rooms are very lovely and offer great views of St.Barths. The adjoining verandas outside are perfect for relaxing with a glass of wine; there is...

My Wife and I just returned from our second visit to Capt. Olivers and we had a wonderful week vacation. The hotel is a perfect location to enjoy both sides of St. Maarten.
