Restos near Wyndham St Maarten

Hi all,

DH and I will be spending a week at the Wyndham St Maarten in April. We plan to rent a car so that we can explore the island. But, hearing about all the traffic is making me wonder if it will be difficult to drive out for dinners, etc.

How long does it take to drive to the French side from where we are (Cupecoy beach)? Are there any good restaurants near the Wyndham?

thanks very much.

The traffic can be bad, but it's not that horrible. You're about 10 or 15 minutes from Marigot, and there are some nice restaurants in Sandy Ground just before town. Parking in town can be a challenge during the day, but it's not bad at night, and there are many good restaurants around the Marine Royale.

It's another 15 minutes to Grand Case from Marigot.

Going the other direction, you can get to Phillipsburg in 15 minutes or so.

But in the Cupecoy area, you're five minutes from the Maho area, and there are several good restaurants at the casinos. Another five minutes brings you to Simpson Bay area, and there other good restaurants there.

All the good eating is not just on the French side of the island, but you'll find several choices. I think there's a good restaurant in the Cupecoy area, but I can't recall the name.

As Doug said, you are not far from Marigot,and there is never much traffic from your hotel through the lowlands into Marigot.
Also between your hotel and the Maho resort area, there is not much traffic either and that area is lined with many restaurants to choose from...both in the Maho resort area and the Atlantis casino complex.
It is when you pass the Maho area and the airport and go through Simpson bay that you can run into traffic, but this is usually during the daytime because of the bridge openings, and not so much at night.
Her is a list of some of the restaurants in the Maho/Cupecoy area and Simpson Bay.
plenty to choose from
