As the Dutch half of St. Martin, St. Maarten (also known as St. Marten and Sint Maarten) has everything you'd expect from a beautiful island in the Caribbean. From charming private hotels to luxurious resorts, there's no shortage of scenic hideaways to let you appreciate the emerald waters and glittering sands that have made St. Maarten a top vacation destination.
Many of the best hotels in St. Marten are found right on the beach, where you can walk straight from your room onto the white sand for a day in the sun. You have your pick of picturesque locations, so whether you're looking for hotels near Coconut Grove Beach or want a secluded resort on the Little Bay, you're sure to find the perfect accommodations to suit your tastes. If you're a lover of airplanes, or simply want a bit of adventure during your tranquil Caribbean vacation, look for St. Marten hotels near Maho Beach. Famous for its proximity to the island's Princess Juliana International Airport, this beach is the subject of countless social media videos showcasing tourists thrilled at the airplane landing patterns that cause jetliners to soar mere feet over the beach below.
Little Island, Little Towns
While many vacationers opt for all-inclusive hotels in St. Maarten, if you're planning on visiting local establishments for dining and entertainment, try looking for hotels in St. Maarten in one of the several small towns and villages that dot the island. Philipsburg is the seat of the local government and stretches across the land-bridge separating Great Bay from the Great Salt Pond, so you're still right near the beach. However, on an island this small, no location is more than a few minutes from the water, so it's also worth exploring hotel options inland. The Dutch Quarter and the Dutch Cul De Sac are particularly popular choices for tourists who want to experience the island culture first-hand.
