I honestly believe this could be the number one spot in st martin if a few things were different. Our check in was painful. The front desk girl was not kind at all.

Had a nice stay here although our view was of the laundry room. Excellent location with plenty of things to do around the resort within walking distance.

I have been coming to this resort with relatives (timeshare owners) on and off for the past 18 years. The last time I was here was 6 years ago at which time the place was still known as "The Pelican" and it was relatively rundown. Apparently the new ownership, in addition to changing the name, has made some very nice...
