Looking for a place to relax near the airport that is quiet, near by, with friendly helpful staff and a great sun terrace? The nThe Summit is the place for you.

Dear EnglishHugh, Thank you very much indeed for the kind review you posted about the Summit on TripAdvisor. I really do appreciate it. As you point out, there are advantages to not staying at a main hotel brand and finding a place with character, like the Summit, is one of them. I'm glad you enjoyed the cocktails at the bar...

The Summit was a great choice. Our view was so wonderful. We sat on our terrace each morning drinking coffee and looking out over the water. The grounds have lovely flowers and trees. We found the location very convenient for many activities. We could walk to Starz casino where there were also several restaurants, including a nice grill, a good...

Reviewed 4 January 2016

The hotel is kind of in a remote location not close to restaurants or shops which we found quite inconvenient because they did not have an onsite restaurant when we visited in August. The view was nice but not close to any beach since the hotel faces an inland bay. The rooms were large and very clean but the beds...

Dear ramona2, Thank you for taking the time to post a review of the Summit on TripAdvisor. Our restaurant was indeed closed in August when you visited as we were preparing for the launch of our new Asian fusion restaurant, which opened in time for the season, and has been getting wonderful reviews since.

Having been let down when a flight was cancelled we got the last room available here. The accommodation was comfortable, staff helpful and friendly and all the touches you expect in a bedroom like AC, nice toiletries, coffee maker etc. The location was great - a view of the sea in a very peaceful part of the island.

This was our first time in St. Maarten, and were we ever lucky! We were able to score one of the units with a view right over Simpson Bay Lagoon (see the photo--that was the view greeting us every morning). But even those without a unit overlooking the lagoon can enjoy it from the pool area. The unit was billed...
