How to Get There
My wife and I just returned from our first trip back to the Dawn Beach Club since Hurricane Irma destroyed the facility in 2017. The company did a fantastic job of rebuilding every one of the four buildings. The Westin hasn't reopened, but the bar staff of Richard John Claude and Kalea do a fantastic job of operating the bar. Several local restaurants haven't reopened because they were destroyed, but a few have started as new facilities and are doing a great job. The island is doing it's best to recover. The Sunset Bar in front of the airport is larger and better than ever. Downtown Phillisburg is totally up to speed and the island is always friendly and great
We used to visit several times per year and after Irma, this was our first time back. The DBC is completely renovated in buildings A and B. Building C is under construction. The Westin hotel is non operational and the damage was severe. I’m so completely happy with the accommodations. The furnishings are so comfortable and I love the change to the third bedroom. Prior it was more of a den with a pull out couch. Now, it is a full fledge bedroom with a king bed as in the other two bedrooms. Although the hotel is closed, the pool and pool bar have been beautifully redone. Calil was the best bartender. The prior snack area is closed but, you can still order food. They have a kitchen and you can enjoy sandwiches or burgers. The beach is still gorgeous but, the water has a lot of seaweed. I’ve never experienced seaweed like this but, they do their best to keep up with it. All in all, it was a fantastic 10 days and we can’t wait to come back.
We just came back from a week here in one of the villa units as the main hotel section is still under renovation. Only the pool & bar area is open. This place is absolutely stunning! The infinity pool was huge, and so nice to jump into at the end of a day sightseeing. It’s a 15-30 min drive to pretty much everything tho - restaurants, Grand Case, other beaches but it is so relaxing here away from the hustle & bustle of Philipsburg and Simpson Bay Area. The staff is also very friendly and very accommodating. There is 24hr security as well. Beach was just ok - large amounts of seaweed accumulated every day even though the grounds people clean it every morning, so not very swimmable. This is temporary, other beaches on the Atlantic side such as Orient beach have the same problem because of massive seaweed floating in the Atlantic.
