Hi anyone with info on a hotel that has a casino is on the beach and has a swimming pool that will allow early check in, please advise. We are cruise passangers docking for the day and would like to get a room at a hotel where my mom can play slots and my niece can swim in the pool and play on the beach. we would like to be able to shop a little and leave our things in our room while we are at the beach and pool. I dont mind paying for a room, but will they let us check in the room early like around 11 am ?


Check out the Pasanggrahan Hotel right on the boardwalk and beach in Great Bay (phone 011-599-542-3588). It 's small, beautifully appointed in a quaint kind of way. It used to the the Govenors' mansion. There's no pool, but the water in Great Bay is so calm. The beach has lounge chairs and it's near (walking distance) to a casino (the Diamond I think). We own a timeshare in St. Maarten and go every year and stayed at the Pasanggrahan once when we extended our stay a day. We'll be back there in April.
