Captain Oliver's is a 4-Star waterfront resort that is uniquely located on the French/Dutch border on the island of St. Martin/St. Maarten (resort map). The resort is often described as a charming intimate getaway off-the-beaten-path, yet the unique location offers easy accessibility to the island's other attributes. The glass wall of the swimming pool (sometimes called the "People Aquarium") and the International Bridge entrance to Captain Oliver's Restaurant designate the border. The hotel is French, while the restaurants & marina are Dutch - a symbol of the island's unity.
Captain Oliver's Resort is home to exotic birds, sharks, turtles and a variety of other creatures. The birds often greet guests with a Hi and Hello before crossing the International Bridge entrance to Captain Oliver's Restaurant. The sharks, turtles, tarpon and other native marine life are located in a natural aquarium beside and under the glass floor of Captain Oliver's Restaurant. The Nature Foundation of St. Maarten has even designated Captain Oliver’s as a rehabilitation center for injured sea turtles.
The resort is situated along and above a secluded bay in the prestigious area of the island called Oyster Pond. Dawn Beach is located just across the bay from Captain Oliver's Resort. Free taxi-boat service to and from the beach is provided for hotel guests - it takes just a couple of minutes to get there. Due to the offshore reefs, on calm days it’s great for snorkeling and on windy days there is a nice surf break that is fun for body surfing. Also there is a sandy area in front of the hotel along the seaside boardwalk with some tikis and hammocks that is private for hotel guests.
Captain Oliver’s Resort is a great place to relax, listen to the waves lapping along the shore, watch the pelicans and seagulls diving and the yachts coming in and out of the bay. Plus there is plenty of activity along the marina with three restaurants and four bars where a variety of entertainment is featured most nights. Sailing charters to nearby uninhabited islands and ferry service to the neighboring island of St. Barths depart directly from Captain Oliver’s Marina.
All of the staff at Captain Oliver’s sincerely want you to truly enjoy your vacation. The goal is for you to have fun and feel so comfortable, relaxed and rejuvenated that you’ll want to come back again and again.
