Condo: My husband and I just returned from a week stay and our condo with ocean view was BEAUTIFUL. The decor is lovely, appliances are all upgraded, bed was super comfortable and the room itself was HUGE with high ceilings. Bathroom had two sinks and a lovely jet tub. My husband made use of the gym on the property and I loved that we were able to wash our clothes before we left. They also had blue beach towels for us. Location: I really wanted to stay on the French side and I was surprised to see that Princess heights is literally at the border. You drive down the hill and make a quick right and immediately you see the border crossing sign. Oyster pond is right within view as well. We LOVED the location. Yeah you have to drive up some hills to get to your room, (which isn’t that bad) but that’s how you get the ocean view without being beachfront. (It was about a 30 minute drive to Phillipsburg/Front Street and 40 mins to Maho and Mullet Bay beaches). Staff: Absolutely lovely and beyond accommodating from the start. You can either call them or text them on WhatsApp. They brought extra towels and changed our bed linens when requested. They also accommodated a late check out for us at 1pm which I appreciated. Also, we had to print our covid declaration paperwork and they were so kind to print it for us and do our temperature checks! We’d definitely return here and I highly recommend it!

We had the pleasure of staying at Princess Heights again on our latest visit. We were looking at other places and getting the run-around, we easily decided to stay at the Heights. The service was excellent and condo was beautiful with an ocean-view. We want to thank Sasha for all her assistance and we look forward to returning soon. I highly recommend this place for a comfortable stay and excellent service.

I was fortunate enough to stumble upon this amazing boutique hotel while visiting the island for vacation. From the moment you arrive there are views from every angle, the beautiful oceans at the front and lovely mountainous terrain behind. I stayed in the one-bedroom suite and it was nothing short of luxurious, from the marble floors to spacious balconies and fully stocked kitchen, I truly felt at home. The front desk staff was extremely helpful and so pleasant! They went above and beyond to ensure I had all I needed (thank you Angie!). As for cuisine, there are many restaurants in the area to choose (and the hotel is not far from the French line so that is an added bonus). I highly recommend this hotel for the warmth of the staff, the exceptional rooms and amazing views. Side note: the balcony faces East, so waking up to the sunrise was surreal.

My wife & I just returned from a much needed 3 week vacation. 17 days were spent at Princess Heights Resort. I cannot say enough good things about our stay. From the very beginning the front desk crew, were so helpful and patient with us. Due to Covid 19 we had to rearrange this trip 6 different times. The we so friendly in conversations before arrival, then after arrival, they were so helpful in all of the information that we needed, as well as so accommodating to any request we had. The whole of staff is so friendly & helpful, from Housekeeping, Security, Custodial, even Construction workers who were remodeling some owners rooms. Our room was so spacious with a large living room. spacious kitchen with plenty of cabinet & counter top space. All utensils, appliances needed were available to us. The double vanity in the Bathroom, The shower & Jacuzzi tub, and cabinet space was amazing. The Master Bedroom had a double closet, night stands on both sides of the bed, a chest of drawers & full length body mirror, still left enough room for me & my wife to have a massage(Several times). Only wish my bedroom at home had this much space. The balcony with the table & chairs & the view that is so breathtaking. We were on the top floor,( Room 1205B) . The resort has a gym, which we both used every day, my wife 2 times a day because of her rehab work. Then there is this amazing pool with a water slide, diving board, not sure of dimensions of the pool, but it is a very big pool. We found this resort after Hurricane IRMA, which was so devastating to the Island. They had had no damage from the storm & you can only understand why when you see where and how this resort was built, not only on a rock, but into the rock hillside. I was so amazed. We will be returning again as soon as time permits. Steve
