My partner and I spent four nights at Mary's Boon in the off season, and had a very good visit. Our Deluxe Studio Beachside room was spacious and clean, and had an excellent view of the calm Caribbean. The property is small, intimate and "quiet" most of the day. The proximity to Princess Juliana airport runway could be a turn... More

Mary's Boon was one of the most unusual and coolest places I've stayed in a long time. Unique and Funky, every bungalow had a different theme. The rooms were enormous and clean with a mini kitchen fully loaded with appliances. WiFI was not ideal but the staff was more than willing to help with numerous passwords and the gal that... More

The Eggs Benedict and omelets were perfect. Service was fair to good. On Sundays, they do a buffet on the outside pavilion (we were there at 10 AM). Pricing was good.

We stayed at Mary's Boon for 2 nights as part of a business trip to several other islands. The photos don't really do it justice.
