We have been owners at Simpson Bay Resort and Casino for over 30 years. It just gets better and better! From the minute you walk into the lobby, you feel like you've
come home. In fact, the staff all greets you by saying, "Welcome Home!" The rooms
are beautifully done, the property has several wonderful restaurants for breakfast, lunch, dinner and coffee and pastries, and the Peli Deli is your own on-property grocery and liquor store! The resort is walking distance to a huge variety of restaurants, night life, shopping, salons, etc. A car is NOT necessary, as the resort even offers free bus service into the town of Phillipsburg for more shopping. The resort has 5 fabulous pools, multiple pool bars, and a beach hut serving some wonderful meals. The loveliest ladies will happily serve you drinks under your private palapa with 2-for-1 Happy Hour starting at 3:00 p.m.! You will love your vacation at this beautiful resort, and will be delighted by its General Manager, Marcel, who will go out of his way to assure your stay is perfect! Oh, and the resort has its ow casino right on the property. Look no further--Simpson Bay Resort is the best!!

Room tip: All the rooms (from studio to penthouse suite) have everything you need. You will be pleased with any room you choose.

Junior suite 5th floor (main floor) Thursday through Monday of Labor Day weekend courtesy of American Airlines vacations BWI/CLT/SXM. Great deal btw. Great flights even though had to fly around Dorian coming and going. Beach great. Beach bar great with Lorelle-bartendress and Stacy-Ann our server extraordinaire.Best Margaritas-Patron and Carib beer. Eateries were Pineapple Petes-always the best ribs; Jamtillion-local Jamaican/Antillean food the grilled grouper was awesome as well as the view of the lagoon at night which exceeded all expectations, the local restaurant across street with Stacyann and Simone as servers name eludes me will add later was great to and for breakfast great again.Also Budget was car rental and again great service; but, Villas had car service to take couples to a restaurant for free-note tip well.Sint Maarten is rebuilding;but, we were satisfied and this vacation proved it was the Sint Maarten we have loved since 1998

My flight was cancelled from Miami to St, Maarten on Wednesday sept 3rd due to Hurricane Dorian. I try to cancel but was too late hoping to solve the situation at the Hotel check in. I booked trough booking.com from the 3rd until the 5th. I finally arrived to St. Maarten on Wednesday the 4th. My original reservation was until Thursday the 5th, as my trip was due to business not pleasure. I had to move my flight back to Friday 6th. The Hotel did not mentioned this at my arrival and I forgot at the time. Thursday I was notified about my check out and I explained the situation and ask of consideration hence I was spending two nights but not 3 nights. Anyway...no regrets from the Hotel...the typical word: NO we CANT...please your credit card. I sometime wonder how they are so splendid selling and when a customer ask something reasonable NO WE CANT...I had a teacher that use to say: reward your customer...think LAS VILLAS is just charge your customer at any chance..

Just came back from a week at the Villas and had an amazing time! We stayed in a 2 bedroom room on the beach. The room was in the perfect location to access all the wonderful things at the resort. The breakfast at Patrona was delicious! The waitresses on the beach kept us in drinks. A great time was had by all!

We just returned on Mon. 8/19 from a wonderful week stay @ The VILLAS @ SBBR & M. We were assigned JR. STE. rm. # 402B which was great! The location was close to the beach area and marina/pool area on the 4th floor with GORGEOUS views of Simpson Bay during the day & sunsets! Our room had 2 full beds,kitchenette,nice bathrm w/tub/shwr combo,huge closet w/FREE safe,iron/board,flatscreen tv. Perfect for the 2 of us.Our room was attended by RENEE' L. She was AWESOME! Thanks RENEE' ( we are the "shampoo guys") lol ;)
The resort is HUGE w/many buildings named after flowers. Our VILLA section, fronted Simpson Bay. There's a BRITT coffee shop in the lobby w/GREAT coffees and treats as well. There is a $6 USD daily fee for the GYM and it's def worth the $$$! One of the best gyms we have had @ a resort while on vacation. Lots of equiptment and it overlooks the pool area.
The 2 beaches on site are very nice! One calmer beach to the right of the COCO BEACH BAR and a more wavy,not rough, one on the left. Palapas,beach lounge chairs & umbrellas on both beaches for guest's use.Very good food/drinks & service @ COCO BEACH BAR,LA PATRONA & REPLAY SPORTS PUB as well as @ the MARINA POOL swimup! In the center of the RESORT there is a CASINO, ITALIAN RESTAURANT,PIANO BAR/NIGHTCLUB,GROCERY STORE,SOUVENIR STORE,PIZZA PARLOR & BISTRO/CAFE. It's like a little town. The Hotel & Grounds are IMMACULATE, as well are the pools and beach area (raked every day). We booked the EDGE II ferry to ST. BARTHS for the day. It leaves right from the hotel's MARINA @ AQUA MANIA.WOW! A MUST DO! Very beautiful over there. Def will go again on my next visit to SXM!
The Resort's location can't be beat! Tons of restaurants/bars/clubs/shops w/in walking distance. We did rent a car in the lobby @ THRIFTY/DOLLAR for the day to see the island since I hadn't been in 25 yrs! The roads are HORRID but we had a great day w/the car enjoying both sides of the island. The weather was PERFECT all week! Hardly a drop of rain! Sunny every day.
Local buses(mini vans) are avail. down the hill on the main road (WELFARE RD). CABS/TAXIS right outside the lobby. We had ELAINE #65 from the airport and we asked for her upon return. She was very nice. Thanks ELAINE!

We both had a fabulous time staying here @ The VILLAS @ SBBR & MARINA.

All of the staff we came in contact with were very nice/helpful. Definitely returning in 2020, possibly in MAY!

Thanks again for a WONDERFUL vacation stay @ The Villas@ SBBR & C.! :) :)

Room tip: ALL Villa rooms face SIMPSON BAY w/ BALCONIES! Gorgeous views & sunsets!
