News From The Summit Resort Hotel, St. Maarten
Dear Valued Guest of the Summit Resort Hotel,
The lush green island of St. Maarten has always been a favorite getaway for many vacationers, because it offers year-round sunshine; warm, crystal-clear water, great shopping, fabulous night life, the world-renowned "Carnival," and of course, the inimitable Summit Resort Hotel.
We are ... the Award-Winning, Affordable,
In fact, the Summit Resort Hotel is so committed to quality customer service, it recently received the prestigious RCI Gold Crown Resort Designation for 2014.
RCI is the largest timeshare vacation exchange network in the world with more than 5,000 member resorts worldwide, and the Summit Resort is thrilled to receive a distinguished award of this caliber.
The RCI Gold Crown Resort Designation is based on a 12-month compilation of exchange guest assessments, including resort quality, service delivery and overall vacation experience. Guests also evaluate resort facilities, amenities and guest services.
Thanks to our valued guests for taking the time to give us high marks of praise!
Oops ... Our Secret is Getting Out!
While many of our guests who return year after year want to keep The Summit Resort Hotel a well-guarded secret, it's hard to keep our beautiful - and affordable - little paradise from getting into the news. A recent article in USA Today online, "Where to Stay on a Budget in St. Martin/St. Maarten", was quick to point out that our nightly rates for a Premium Water View room are as low as USD $120 in low season and cost-conscious patrons will appreciate our open-air restaurant that offers great breakfast food choices such as pancakes for under USD $10, and dinner entrées up to USD $15.95.
This truly is the premier vacation spot because you can enjoy our dreamy island destination without breaking the bank. We have so many returning visitors that many become like family. So come, discover the most beautiful and relaxing place on earth.

St. Maarten News of Note
We recently celebrated St. Martin's Day on November 11th. Legend has it that Christopher Columbus sighted and anchored at our island on this day in 1493, and because it was the feast day of St. Martin of Tours, he named our island after the saint.

We were also thrilled towelcome King Willem-Alexander of the Netherlands and Queen Maxima on November 13 as they arrived on their visit to St. Maarten for 10 days. Our islanders were happy to welcome our royalty and gave them a special reception.
There's always something wonderful happening at St. Maarten. Come to The Summit Resort Hotel and be a part of it!
40 Years of Service and Still Going Strong!
We'd like to applaud our own Ms. Mena, Head of Housekeeping, who recently celebrated 40 years of service with the Summit Resort Hotel and its guests. Mena began working at the Summit when we first opened for business in November 1973.
Ms. Mena ensures that rooms are kept spotless by the housekeeping staff and is always looking for ways to improve guest comfort at the Summit Resort Hotel.
Her warm smile is a welcome sight to guests whether they are here for the first time or returning year after year. We pride ourselves on being a "family" at the Summit, because many family members work side-by-side here, and this is certainly true with Ms. Mena. Her sister Muriel has worked at the Summit for 36 years and her daughter Evans is our General Manager.
We thank Ms. Mena for her dedication to the Summit Resort Hotel and its guests and look forward to many more years of her stewardship of the unique Summit Resort guest experience.
St. Maarten is a wonderful place to come for warmth, sunshine and relaxation in the dead of winter.
There is no time like the present to get your reservation for a fabulous stay in one of the most beautiful places in the world: The Summit Resort Hotel on the incredible island of St. Maarten.
