  1. What a great forum this would be to post updates to the hurricane damage at Great Bay in St. Maarten. Many future and past guests are interested in knowing how the recovery is going. I just booked a vacation only to find out after the fact that the resort is closed right now. It’s suppose to open 4 days before my arrival, but if not then what…stuck on an island with no where to go?

    • Thank you Tanya for reaching out and sharing your feedback with us. We understand that it is very frustrating to plan a vacation when the hotel is recovering and repairing after the hurricane. Our team is working diligently to have the hotel ready in time for a December 17th opening. While we don’t foresee a delay in the opening, the hotel will most certainly notify guests if there are any changes to the schedule that will impact their stay.
