This condo is old and needs updating desperately

  • 2 of 5

We have come to St Maarten for a number of years and our family was quite disappointed in this condo. It is definitely NOT a "luxury condo"! It felt like more of a inexpensive motel. There were many odd decorative items, things like ironing board and mops crowded into, and spare wooden pieces (as best I can describe. I don't know what they were) in many of the closets that we were supposed to use. It crowded out the space and it felt like it was a condo under construction or the owners just didn't know what to do with old parts of various decor. The layout also makes the condo feel very small. It's extremely compartmentalised so the only room where you can gather is the one with the dining room table in front of the TV. Each room is off on its own--very private but felt isolating to us as a family. The dishwasher detergent compartment lid was broken off so it wouldn't wash the dishes every time. The unit was simply not cleaned well at all--we had to wash all of the dishes before using! As owners I would speak with the service immediately and seriously or just go ahead and fire them. We can't be the first to say this. There were also frays and tears in the furniture fabric. Lastly the pull out sofa mattress was pancake thin and useless. Again, this is another example of how old the unit is. Since it made more room for us to be together, we had to open it up and use it. One bed was very comfortable, the master was ok while the twin beds were not usable they were so hard--it looks like they replaced the one but the others weren't.The unit is quiet and did have the kitchen items that we needed. And the two car garage was very convenient. We love Silver Shells but will not come to this unit ever again.

Great place to stay

  • 5 of 5

Our family stayed comfortably in this beautiful penthouse condo for one week. The location is great--close proximity to shopping, grocery stores, restaurants, deep sea fishing, water park, entertainment venues for the children. The condo is beautifully decorated and well stocked with all the necessities. The view from the balcony is breath-taking. The double enclosed garage was an added perk. It was roomy enough for two of our vehicles, and we stored all our beach toys there each evening--very convenient. We considered this one of the best and most convenient places in which we have stayed. We will definitely consider it again in the future.
