Stamford, Connecticut
Reviewed 3 days ago NEW

Summit is always a good choice for a quiet resort. The rooms have been updated, look great. Staff friendly and efficient. The sheets are the crispest on the island, I didn't want to get out of bed. Easy drive to restaurants at either Maho or Cupecoy.

Reviewed 17 January 2017

The Summit Hotel is a very good value. It is well located between Simpson Bay and Marigot so getting to really good food is only a short drive. There is also a French bakery a great little bbq bar and restaurant and a market within a 2 min walk. The grounds of the Summit are located in a quiet area...

The Summit Hotel is an older resort. However it appears that they really take care of the property. Our room in building 10 had a perfect view of Simpson Bay. It was recently remodeled and updated. It had all the appliances you need to cook in the room if you wanted too. The staff at the Summit are just terrific....
