Princess Heights exceeded our expectations - from check-in to check-out. Two couples were staying in a 2 bedroom condo in the taller, newer building. Carmen welcomed us and showed us to our condo (by car!) and gave us a number of good tips and information about the condo and St Maarten. Checking in was a breeze. The room itself was...

Deluxe studio with outstanding views. The staff is wonderful. Dawn Beach under the right circumstances has some of the finest swimming and snorkeling on the island. Roads on St. Maarten are often narrow and can get congested. Beaches are outstanding but snorkeling is only average due to lack of coral. We highly recommend Princess Heights.

My fiancée surprised me with a wonderful stay at the Princess Heights Hotel. We have visited St. Maarten for many years and this property was quiet, well landscaped, the room with a view of St. Bart's was large, clean and comfortable and the balcony was perfect for evening wine and cheese or morning coffee. There are two buildings and we...

Terrace had a great view of the sea. Nice property if you really need a quiet and relaxing place. Room and bathroom were big. Nice kitchenette. Staff were very helpful in getting my daily taxi requests. Those Dutch kids were great!

Very private. The rooms are nice with a little kitchen and all the basics. It requires a long drive up a private gated community road but you can walk down steps to get to Dawn Beach via the Westin. Small grocery items can be purchased at Oyster Pond or the larger market on Bush Road, on the way from the...

Thank you for a great 10 day stay. Our room was always cleaned and the staff went out of the way to find towels when we had a boat excursion early in the morning and the maid service was closed. The staff makes this place! Room (suite)was well furnished, kitchen had a 2 burner cooktop with pans and dishes that...

The staff is awesome. So helpful and friendly. The newer building with the elevator is nice. The pool is great!! Dawn beach by the Westin is adequate but not as good as others on the island, including the small stretch of beach right next to it It's convenient to just about everything if you have a rental car.
