Many people come to St. Maarten just to see the spectacular landing and taking off of jets at its unusual airport and if you're among them then you can’t go wrong with this lovely hotel tucked away behind the runway. Thankfully, the airport closes at 22:00, so you won’t have to lose any sleep. Its 31 suites are spacious, clean and equipped with comfortable furniture and the best beds on St. Maarten. For over 40 years Mary's Boon has been a local favourite, mainly due to the lovely white sand beach outside, but a small, yet functional pool is also available. A recent takeover has also been a blessing for the property as the new management has made many improvements. The friendly staff is yet another reason to stay here as well as the Tides, its top-notch restaurant serving delicious cocktails.
