Very Good 8.0
Nice beach and breakfast
Nice, small hotel directly on the beach. The breakfast was included, and the service was very nice from most of the staff. The only thing was some noize from the airport.

Exceptional 10.0
An amazing oceanfront location on Simpson Bay from the time you sit down to check in to check out the views are phenomenal. Great open air restaurant serving breakfast (included), lunch & dinner with a vast menu and friendly staff at this quaint boutique hotel. Beach loungers and umbrellas readily available on the (daily) manicured stretch of beach with an even larger stretch to walk as far as you'd like. Stayed in the Peridot suite which is a top/2nd floor corner room with its own stairs and private balcony complete with an outdoor couch to enjoy the phenomenal views without having to leave "home". Watching planes come and go from the back deck (not attached to the room) is an experience not to miss. On the "quiet" end of Simpson Bay just a short walk on the beach to the hubbub or short walk the other direction finds the infamous plane activity viewing Maho beach and the roundabout to catch the public bus (read their destination sign in the window, throw your hand up and be on your way) or the grocery store. Welcoming from pick up to drop off and all points in between highly recommend this slice of paradise when considering St. Maarten as your destination.

A piece of home on a tiny island!
Ed and Nicole are great people and great hotel owners. St Maarten, in a lot of ways, is NOT quite ready for tourists since last year’s Hurricane Irma but the staff at El Zafiro made every effort to be kind and accommodate us in every way. My fiancé and I would definitely stay here again. We stayed in the aquamarine suite. The beach is private and very peaceful. The bar/restaurant are a bit expensive but we found out that this is the case all over the island (could be due to tourism being way down after the storm). Ed even arranged for us to do a catamaran tour to anguilla one day of our stay and we absolutely enjoyed every bit of it!!!
