Saw the (co?-)owner of Calmos last week. He is hoping to re-open in 2020. In the meantime he is running Le Telegraph, in Orient, on the square. We had lunch there (on the beach side of the building). Very nice. Big outside area for dinner on the square with comfy chairs.

Thank you! Another birthday..., but at least I am getting presents and have a party :-) Also, this board also still exists because of the above two moderators! They are trying to keep the board clean of all those spammers, that are able to solve that mathematical question quite easily... I was just on the island actually. It looks so nice and green! Had some great food and discovered a

Come on, 'Casual Observer'! So untrue! We led a lot slide by. We only frown upon blatant advertising. Gert

We all know that St.Maarten/St.Martin is the best island in the world. Let's vote for St.Maarten to make it the #1 island on the US News "Best Islands in the World" ranking. Now it is #9 Visit http://travel.usnews.com/Rankings/Best_Islands_in_the_World/ and click yes for St. Martin - St. Maarten! Gert

Sorry for the late reply. There is a link to the forum on the St.Martin home page, but typing gobeach.com/sxm is the shortest way to get here :-)

Hi all, I finally redid the 'gobeach' website. The layout had basically not changed since we started in 1995! Yes, we have been here that long! Click and explore the villas we offer, and please tell your friends about us :-) We will soon update the restaurant and other island info pages, which is badly needed as well. http://gobeach.com/sxm.htm Gert

Beautiful picture, but there is no way that it can be St.Maarten. If you stand on the highest point on Culebra (650 ft) the horizon is at 35 miles. See: Distance of the Horizon. The distance between St.Maarten and Culebra is about 140 miles... Even if you take into account Pic Paradis at 1400 ft, you won't see further then 60 miles or so. Looks to me St.Thomas or something.

Pretty cool indeed. On gobeach.com we have also for a while all villas and some hotels on Google Maps (and for a higher resolution in Google Earth). Nice to see it with the streets though:

Sorry Barbara, didn't know they were your favorites too :-) That's so great and unique about the island, so many types of cuisines because of the many different cultures. You can eat Dutch food at the Holland House on the Boardwalk, like 'bitterballen' and if in season the Dutch sushi (new herring). Indonesian food at Wajang Doll. Just plain high quality steak, lots of

I finally got around posting our restaurant reviews on our 'food' page Here they are, some are familiar to many, other places might be (hopefully) new to some: # Restaurant Reviews by Gert and Annemariek "This summer we spend three weeks on St.Maarten, having 2 six-year olds limited our restaurant experience, resulting in more take-out.

Took this pictures yesterday morning... A sad sight. But I am sure some other bar will be built there... It's a great spot.

Yes, BobP, there is Guy's on the other side of Maho. Drinks are a lot cheaper there, and the rum punch is their specialty, not sure how many different knds of liquors she put in there! I think Guy started out with just a cooler and now has a 'real' bar with chairs and tables. Even serving food. Too bad though about Sunset Beach Bar. It was a fun place.

Thanks for the tips. We have had take out from Big Fish twice already. Very tasty. Also went with some friends to a pizza place in Oyster Pond, I think it was called Mama's Pizza indeed. That is a really nice spot actually. Friendly, relaxed atmosphere. Good for kids. Had lunch at Mr.Busby's, which was very disappointing actually. The burger patty was frozen not handmade i

Yes, I really think it looks cleaner There are still the overfilled containers I guess, but there is so much less litter along the road, like bottles, plastic bags, etc. I was actually pleasantly surprised when we drove around the island, except for what they are doing to Cupecoy!!! How could they ever have approved all that construction on the Lagoon side of the road! A real shame. R

We just bought some Douwe Egberts. The famous Dutch Coffee! I think it was around 5 guilders, $2.50? For 250 grams, half a pound, at the Grand Marche. Very tasty, compared to regular american coffee.

Hi everybody, Just to let you know that I am on St.Maarten right now. Staying on beautiful Dawn Beach, at the Coral Beach Club (in the unit next to Triton). My first impression after haven't been here for two years, is that the island looks so clean! I always remembered the trash everywhere, but now it looks pretty tidy. Very good to see. Also, yes, there is that new area of inte

That is strange indeed. One thing I can think of is that you might have javascript disabled, but even without javascript the forum should work normally, it's only used for 'enhancements'. Otherwise e-mail me what kind of operating system (Windows XP, Mac OS X10.5, ...) and browser you are using...
