First visit to St. Maarten by the Francis family (and extended family). Extraordinary vacation enjoyed by all 7 of us. Some highlights include body surfing at Dawn Beach, lounging on the patio overlooking the ocean view, walks and runs on the beach, barbecues on the grill, trips to Orient Beach (magnificent!), Rhino Safari Tours to reef for snorkeling trip, a day relaxing at Pinel Island, a catamaran trip to Anguilla and Prickly Pear. We enjoyed wonderful meals at Daniel’s, L’ Oasis, Au Petit Cafe (Philipsburg) and several trips to Sarafina’s bakery in Marigot. We definitely look forward to a return visit to St. Martin. Craig was a terrific guide to our family as well, and was always available to answer questions and give advice.
