Westin Dawn Beach Resort & Spa
- What's Included
We have a timeshare at the WDB, and have visited several times. The resort is very pretty with green lawns, coconut palms, and beautiful white sand of Dawn Beach. The condo itself is very comfortable and spacious. We have found the staff to be friendly and helpful. On those occasions where we needed something, the response was quick and courteous. Based on our trips around the island, WDB looks like one of the finer resorts available.The pool is large, with plenty of lounges. Alexander was our waiter for several days, and remembered everyone by name and was very friendly and attentive. We dined at the Ocean restaurant, where Deborah was our server. She noted that I was less than thrilled about my steak (although I told it was "fine"), and she struck the charge from our bill. It was a very nice act, and much appreciated.
This was our third year in a row staying at the Westin in St. Maarten. The past two years we've visited in March, but this time we waited until the first week in May which is considered the "low season". Our experience was greater than we could've imagined. Initially, we booked a resort view room, but were upgraded immediately at check-in to ocean front, and by ocean front I mean 50 feet from the water. On top of that, when we returned to our room after dinner there was a wine and cheese plate waiting for us. The level of service and attention is second to none from any place we've ever stayed. The staff remembers your name - even from your previous stays - asks about your stay so far and always asks if there's anything they can do to make your experience better. Not to mention the fact that they always go out of their way to make your stay special and unique. For instance, we decided to make it a hotel day and didn't venture out on one of the days on our stay. While we were sitting at "our spot" by the pool, Shane - the head of security - came over and asked if we wanted a coconut that he was about to cut down from one of the trees. Of course we said yes, and he cut down a coconut, opened it up and handed it off without a sweat. I'm not sure of many other places that offer this type of service without even asking. Shane is a great source of information for places to eat, nightlife etc. so if the concierge isn't available then he's your man. Not to mention that he'll remember you, your interests and the like when you inevitably return the next year. Oh and I almost forgot to give a mention to Juan who is one of the best bartenders I've met. Make sure to ask for the BBC.I also highly recommend the two restaurants at the Westin. While we normally venture out to eat, the times we've eaten dinner at the hotel were absolutely amazing.I will say that it's probably a good idea to rent a car if you're staying at the Westin and plan on venturing out. Navigating St. Maarten is really easy by car and the hotel's proximity to both the Dutch and French sides gives you so many options for amazing food and other beaches that you might not see otherwise. Honestly, I can't say enough good things about the Westin Dawn Beach and the wonderful professional service they provide. They've always made us feel like we're at home and I would recommend the Westin to anyone.
Checked in for a one night stay on the 9th. Arrived at 2:45PM from the airport and was surprised when I was told no room was available at that time and to return at 3PM. The person I was with, who had the reservation was equally as shocked. We went to park the car, grab our bags, and returned to be told our room was ready. (It was about 3pm at this time) The room was large and had a great view of the pool/ocean. No complaints there. It was June and it is the low season on the island, but I was surprised at how empty the hotel/pool/casino were during our one night. We never ran into any of the time share people that are mentioned in the other reviews and never felt pressured to sit through any kind of presentations. We ate breakfast on the morning of check out at the buffet. It was good food, but lacked any local flavor that I have found in other Westin/Starhot properties I have stayed in.
I had a 1st floor ocean room for 5 nights. Safe location, but you need a taxi if you want to venture away from the Westin. The bus stop is too far of a walk. Nice pool & great staff. We felt very welcome & safe.
Well we as well fell for the 3 hour scam at the Westin Dawn Beach. We received a for voucher for a 4 night/5 day stay at the Dawn Bach club, quoted to us as $86/day. I contacted the email on the voucher. A Latisha responded, asked me for the voucher# and never got back to me. For the hell of it I sent an email again today, the first one was in early April 2017.I guess it's just another scam.Don't fall for it. But let's see if someone responds ?
