St. Maarten (the Dutch side) and St. Martin (the French side) each offer a dizzying array of hotel or other lodging alternatives. Having not visited the island previously, I was primarily interested in being near an excellent beach. Although I would have a rental car (a necessity when staying on the island), I did not want to drive far to lay in the sun or swim in the warm waters. With many options to chose from, I chose Cupecoy Beach, and I was happy with that decision. Staying away from Simpson Bay and Phillipsburg is a good idea. I was tempted to opt for the cheapest lodging near Cupecoy Beach, and I surely did not want to want for a stay at the most expensive location. I opted for a one bedroom unit at the Cliff at Cupecoy Beach. That was a very good decision. The Cliff is a short drive from the airport, which was super. The Cliff is gated and safe. The lobby is open and welcoming, as were the security guards, always present. My large unit, on the 8th floor, had wonderful views of the beach and coast on one side and the town on the over side. The daily breezes through the unit were refreshing. Happily, the unit was immaculately decorated and appointed: a beautiful kitchen with modern, high-end appliances; TVs in large living area and large bedroom; a spacious closet with plenty of room to hang clothes and drawers to store clothes; and a beautiful dining table in large dining area, on the other side of the huge kitchen center island. The balcony was large and protected, prefect for sitting, sleeping, or reading. I appreciated the comfortable bed and the well-equipped weight room and yoga room, but the wonder and delight of the trip for me, in addition to the beaches, was the indoor Olympic-sized pool. Fantastic! I swam twice a day, several times after midnight (weight room and pool were open 24/7). I expect to return to St. Maarten, and I will surely return to stay at the Cliff.
