Fodor's Expert Review La Vista
53 Billy Folly Rd., Simpson Bay, n/a St. Maarten, St. Maarten
Hibiscus and bougainvillea line brick walkways that connect the wood-frame bungalows and beachfront suites of this intimate and friendly, family-owned time-share resort perched at the foot of Pelican Key. The accommodations, which are under renovation, are somewhat sparsely furnished and have small bathrooms, but the balconies have awesome views. Definitely go for a deluxe room on an upper floor. The beach is rocky but good for snorkeling—and great for sunsets.
