We just left the Summit after a four night stay and it was WONDERFUL! The staff was so welcoming and willing to do anything. It felt like going home to mom. In fact, the owner is very often seen and accessible. The hotel was a great value. The rooms were spacious, clean, and just renovated. The shower had great pressure....

The staff was extremely helpful answering all my questions. The room was spacious & clean. The bed was very comfortable (previous reviews had complained about the beds). Gave sleep quality 4 stars due to lack of a noise ordinance on the island. Overall a very good value.

The setting was beautiful and easy to access. Please do not be tricked into thinking your children could use the pull out couch as a bedding option. It is awful (we put the old, not-very-clean mattress on the floor and it was still very uncomfortable for the children). The pool area is so pretty, eating at Fat Tony's for dinner...

Dear COLORADOFAMILY33, Thank you for taking the time to post a review of the Summit on TripAdvisor.

First upon check in the room had this odor kind of smelled like cat urine. The shower floor still had hair and debris from a previous stay. Mattress wasn't of good quality. Access panel in ceiling above shower fell in. However the employees were friendly and tried to help. Will not recommend staying here until the update resort

Dear MocteMa, I am sorry to read of your experience when staying at the Summit recently.

Quiet grounds, clean updated rooms, full kitchen, roll out bed, friendly staff, nice pool and free parking. No complaints. Highly recommended. My 5th visit to St. Maarten and this is the past place I have stayed at.

Spacious room; very comfortable king size bed. All modernized amenities (bathroom, in-room kitchen, etc). Great view overlooking the pool and volleyball court. An awesome serene place to relax outside the bustling tourism district. Several bars, restaurants and even a casino is within walking distance.

Twice a year visit is not enough, looking to extend my time at my home away from home. The Cupe Coy Low Land area and Simpson Bay Lagoon has everything I might need. My favorite beaches are within walking distance and most important, the people are great.

Quiet resort, clean, personnel helpful and friendly. Limited facilities. Convenient location to Cupecoy area. Lack of restaurant or snack bar at pool was unfortunate. Room cleaned daily but smallish with lack of counter space.
