HOTEL’S FAVOURITE REVIEW
Reviewed 17 January 2017

The Summit Hotel is a very good value. It is well located between Simpson Bay and Marigot so getting to really good food is only a short drive. There is also a French bakery a great little bbq bar and restaurant and a market within a 2 min walk. The grounds of the Summit are located in a quiet area...

I found the hotel room and staff excellent. I have seen other reviews contrary to mine but the bed was good as was the cleanliness. Only a five minute walk to restaurants and small set of shops and an excellent gym if that's your thing. If you can avoid the tourist area supermarkets and shop in the residential supermarkets- will...

We have been coming here for years. The happy hour is great. It's fun to chat with tourists and locals. The hotel looks to be cleaner and better. Very nice staff. The area is quiet and calm on an increasingly hectic and busy island. The view of Simpson Bay is spectacular. We have the use of a house nearby but...

My husband and I spent a week at the Summit in early February. The hotel is lovely. The grounds are beautiful, the kitchen well equipped, the bed was very comfortable, and we loved the shower.

Dear dewitta2017, Thank you very much for the wonderful review you posted about the Summit on TripAdvisor. Having opened in 1973, as one of the first hotels on St Maarten, we are indeed proud to be an "older" property which, guests tell us, is a big part of the charm of the Summit.

It was amazing place, clean, quite, close to everything we needed . The bar was very welcoming and we spent many "happy" hours there. There was also an "old fashion" feel to the place. We will be back next year
