How to Get There
This was our 4th trip to Simpson Bay Villas and it was the best one yet. Manuel at the front desk made sure everything was taken of during our stay.
Our view was spectacular and we watched all the yachts coming in and out of the marina. The beach and pool were wonderful. All the amenities were excellent. The resort is spotlessly clean and parking is free and very safe.
We had a bad experience with taxi driver 432 who overcharged and Marcel, the resort manager, made sure the taxi was not able to come back to the resort. They really put the guests first. We will surely be back!
This was the second time staying here. I returned as every room has a stunning sea view, excellent Wi-fi and walking access to a good number of restaurants and grocery stores. These aspects again did not disappoint. The staff were on the whole friendly particularly the receptionists.
A couple of negatives: there was a $6 per day charge if you want to use the gym, this seems excessive given the hotel isn’t exactly cheap on the first place. Additionally they wanted a $5 towel deposit! My other negative is the early check out time of 10am. I asked for a late check out and it could only be extended till 11am. The latter could be a serious factor for trying a different hotel next time.
If you’re looking for a resort feel with breathtaking views and pretty spacious rooms you would love the property. Sadly, I had a terrible experience with the customer service in general. I booked a one bedroom oceanfront suite because I was leaving from St Martin after surprising my mom for her birthday in Nevis.
She and her husband decided to come with me to see me off. I booked with Carlo who I may say was awesome and in the resorts defense it was only going to be me. However when we all walked in at 10 PM tired and anxious to enjoy the last night together, there were 3, less then friendly reception desk girls who said all 3 of us couldn’t stay in a one bedroom JUNIOR suite nor will I get a refund. After an hour long conversation with I guess the manager , leaving us standing there .. we were finally accommodated. I spoke to him twice (after the phone was shoved at me). The second time I spoke to him I politely told him he will regret this as I am a seasoned traveler and have my own travel site in the works. All of a sudden .. I could pay $35 to have a 3rd person stay.
I have been to many resorts that have wheeled in cots .. etc. It was truly offensive.
However the bartenders at the sports bar made up for the initial experience. They were MORE then accommodating!
Friendly and said they will stay open as long as we want ! I wish I had their names because they rocked!
Checkout was 10..? Another first .
The place was very beautiful but the front desk and management staff could use some customer relations lessons. First impressions are huge.
Thank you to Carlo and the bartenders at the sports bar!
Pros: We were happy overall with our stay at the Villas. Our room on the 6th floor had an awesome view of the bay, a couple of beaches and lovely boats. It was nice to sit on the balconies and just relax when not out on the property. It was also nice to leave our slider cracked open and fall asleep to the sound of the waves. We had a two bedroom suite as we brought our 3 grown sons with us. The two combined units were really large and were perfect. The pool and grounds are really nice and they are working very hard at restoring everything after Irma and are one of the only hotels that are fully functional and have done a great job. The main pool is nice, view great and drinks great. Highly recommend the guava-berry rum daiquiri. An island speciality. La Patrona restaurant is very good. We were able to get a package so that our daily breakfast was included. It's a good deal to take if they are offering it. The dinner there was nice too (another review). The staff at the front desk were professional and helpful as were the security guards out front. They will call a cab for you. The little cafe for coffee is very good. Go visit Splash jewelry store in the lobby area. The men that work there are so helpful and nice. We made a few, little purchases. We think the prices are better than anywhere in Philipsburg. The beaches that you can walk to on either side are beautiful. We preferred to not go to Kim Sha but to the beach(es) in front of the hotel over to the left side. You can also go down the ladder at the little dock right behind the pool. We bought blow up rafts and loved floating there. There's also a fairly large rock that's not far that is great for viewing some nice fish if you have snorkel gear.
Cons: The furnishings need updating. The tile everywhere needs to be changed. The bathroom shower/tubs need to be changed. Our safe did not work. The water first comes out rusty but then is ok after you let it run. Our kitchen faucet leaked so there was always water all over the granite counters! If you like to go to the gym on your vacations (my three sons love to) expect to be charged. They charge $6pp a day or $10 for 2 people. It can add up. The washing machines do not work well. The clothes we washed smelled funny. The dryer available did not work at all and after trying for an hour to get maintenance to help...it was a bust. We had to lay out every piece of clothing on our balconies and let them sun dry. It turned out ok but this was frustrating. The daily maid/room service like to come in and clean your room(s) around 4:30-5PM. This was extremely frustrating because this is generally when we all wanted to get back in, shower and get ready for dinner. They are not generous with towels/bath mats. I had to keep requesting more. The elevators are very small and you have to wait at least 5 minutes for them. We ended up taking the stairs most of the time.
I wanted somewhere with a pool and also quick beach access. Beach access is a two minute walk right on the property. This place filled the bill. I plan to stay here again and again. The housekeeping staff is so friendly. Checking in AND out fast/easy and no parking struggles with my rented car. I rented my car right IN the lobby. There is a desk dedicated to car rentals. Awesome. I wish my junior suite had a stove. There is only a microwave and mini refrigerator. There are restaurants on the property. Everything is so convenient. I recommend staying here.
