We love St. Maarten & hope to return someday! Our first week was in the hills overlooking Oyster Pond. Our second week has been on the waters edge of the pond. We discovered Captain Alan's Charter office 10 minutes away & had a fantastic day of snorkeling with an unexpected sighting of both dolphins and whales. It doesn't get better... More

This is beautiful part of the island! The marina itself is pretty and we enjoy the skill it takes for the boaters to both enter and leave the cove. There are multiple restaurants to choose from as well as grocery and liquor stores. We were fortunate enough to be here during a full moon and loved watching the light breaking... More

We were aboard Captain Alan's boat which was a great experience. The captain and his son were very nice and made sure we had a good time. We had food and drinks aboard the boat and also enjoyed feeding the fishes.

It is hard to see much of Oyster Pond unless you have a car. While it would be easy to take a dinghy and cruise to all points, the restaurants on the south shore and the Sheraton have made this all but impossible with no dinghy docks.

We enjoyed the restaurants and the village. We were not at all happy with Captain Oliver's Resort Hotel. Lucky's and l'oasis are better (and less expensive) than the restaurants in grand case.
