St. Martin

I really had fun on St. Martin. There's a lot to do there, but you can also relax and have a little seclusion. The Marine Hotel, a sprawling complex, may be the best buy on the Nettle Bay hotel strip. Rooms and duplex suites are cheerfully decorated, most have a view of the water, and all have a kitchenette and balcony. Budget-conscious Europeans love this place because of the many extras, like a huge breakfast buffet and nightly local entertainment. There are shuttle (not complimentary) to Marigot, Philipsburg, and beaches. Have a good trip.

My husband and I went to St. Martin in Nov. '94 and had a great time. We stayed at Mullet Bay which I would highly recommend. It really is the best beach on the island. Accomodations are very nice, clean, fairly new. Casino on the property. Don't stay at Maho Beach-the planes come in right over the beach-kick up the sand and water. A really good day trip is the catamaran to Prickly Pear. Another good beach on St. Martin is Oyster Pond.

We have been to St-Martin twice. There are 37 beautiful beaches that can be reached by car. Rental can be as cheap as $25.US a day for a small four speed vehicle(no frills or A/C).
Snorkling and diving is good, water sports great. You can even find secluded beaches that let you take in the sun without the intervention of bathing suit material.ENJOY!

We stayed at the Marine Hotel Simpson shortly after the hurricane in Nov. '95. It was an excellent bargain and the people were very nice. It's not on a great beach but within easy driving to a few and to Marigot which we loved. The island is quite small and easy to get around if you have a car. The French side has a nicer ambiance and the best croissants!

Is the Marine hotel suitable for children ages 8 and 9? Are any of the beaches within walking distance of the hotel ?
What about the availability of water sports, windsurfing snorkling etc from this location
