Food was decent but a little overpriced. The original vibe and feel that made this place so unique at the end of the runway right on the famous Maho Beach is gone. No more chalk board with flights departures and arrivals with the radio playing...More

Great views of the landing aircraft. No place like it. Crowed at times And you are chased from tables if you dont eat something, which l understand. Good food and entertaining for a different place to go

There was construction going on. There are no refills on the soda. There were cats everywhere. My salad was good and the view is spectacular but this time was not as enjoyable as the first 2 times.

Great location to watch the planes come in at Maho Beach! Stop by here to watch the craziness of the tourists on the beach watching the planes come in and leave. Great selection of draft beers, good pizza and sandwiches. Get the guacamole bowl!

If you are an aviation buff this is the place for you. The planes landing over head is amazing. The power of the jet engines taking off is incredible. The only down fault if you go sit on the beach it will get very crowded...More

Fasten your seatbelts for fun in the sun! Sunset Bar & Grill is St. Maarten's most popular beach bar and it's easy to see why. We are right on a beautiful white sandy beach, but also right at the end of the runway of Princess Juliana International Airport. Where else can you enjoy an ice cold beer as a huge KLM Jumbo Jet soars right over your head?
