We have been coming here for years. The happy hour is great. It's fun to chat with tourists and locals. The hotel looks to be cleaner and better. Very nice staff. The area is quiet and calm on an increasingly hectic and busy island. The view of Simpson Bay is spectacular. We have the use of a house nearby but when that is not available we will come here. The reviews are very encouraging.

Dear Mohican33,

Thank you for taking the time to post such a nice, simple and to the point review of the Summit on TripAdvisor. I really appreciate it. I think you made it easy for other travelers to understand what makes the Summit such an attractive place to stay too. We are close to lots of things to do, including beaches, restaurants and shopping, have a wonderful staff and offer a quiet and calm escape too. The spectacular view is a very nice bonus too. I hope we have a chance to welcome you back to the Summit sometime soon.

All the best,
Bruce Jakubovitz, Owner

My husband and I spent a week at the Summit in early February. The hotel is lovely. The grounds are beautiful, the kitchen well equipped, the bed was very comfortable, and we loved the shower. In addition, the pool area was very clean and comfortable. The view of the lagoon just added to the stay. There are a number of nice restaurants within walking distance and our favorite beach Mullet Bay is quite close. The staff is very friendly and helpful. We will be back.

Dear Mary B,

Wow, I'd call your review "A perfect review!" Thank you so much for taking the time to post such a nice review of the Summit on TripAdvisor. I really appreciate it. Thank you for hitting the highlights too and mentioning our beautiful grounds, the comfortable bed and so forth. Yes, that view over the lagoon is indeed stunning. Some say it is the best view on the island and we agree! I'm glad you enjoyed all the restaurants within easy walking distance too. Since your visit in February two new ones have opened too, one offering vegetarian fare and the other middle eastern dishes. We look forward to welcoming you back to the Summit sometime soon.

All the best,
Bruce Jakubovitz, Owner

Overall the Resort was very nice. A little older but very good location. Staff was friendly. Would stay there again, Rooms facing the Lagoon are great. Pool was nice and clean, along with entrance to Resort being secure.

Dear dewitta2017,

Thank you very much for the wonderful review you posted about the Summit on TripAdvisor. Having opened in 1973, as one of the first hotels on St Maarten, we are indeed proud to be an "older" property which, guests tell us, is a big part of the charm of the Summit. All of our rooms have been completely renovated, most recently in 2015 and 2016, but we still retain a sense of "Old World Caribbean Charm" as we like to call it. No high rises, concrete or steel buildings or any interior hallways here, as you know, just individual villas, separated by walkways that wind through flowering gardens. It's easy to be in touch with nature here and to enjoy the peace and quiet we offer. Thank you for mentioning our wonderful staff too. They really are what makes the difference at the Summit. We look forward to welcoming you back in the future.

Best regards,
Bruce Jakubovitz, Owner

We have stayed at the Summit 3 times. The rooms are clean, the staff is knowledgeable and goes above and beyond to help with information. It is in a great location. A 5 minute walk to Mullet Bay, our favorite beach!

It was amazing place, clean, quite, close to everything we needed . The bar was very welcoming and we spent many "happy" hours there. There was also an "old fashion" feel to the place. We will be back next year
