Mullet Bay Resort and Casino in 1973 - it was literally heaven on earth even if a lot of it was still under construction.

In one of the six rooms behind Hevea in Grand Case. Fodor's touted them as "for self-sufficient art-appreciating types". Also cheap. Got to SXM on Pan Am where we had lots of miles. Bought at Flamingo (then part of Pelican) on that trip. Now own eight weeks.

Our first visit was on our honeymoon cruise over 39 years ago, along with a one week stay on St. Croix. Our first stay was at Club O in 1991, which is the only place we have stayed for all of our visits.

First stayed here after we found the Resort when we came to Mullet Bay from our Cruise. That was in the mid 80's and have visited the Island over 25 times since.

First trip to St. Maarten was in 1995 because another vacation trip was cancelled to Mexico. Chose Divi Little Bay over Dawn Beach Resort. Thank God we did. Divi survived, Dawn Beach did not., as Louis took care of them. We bought our time share then. Have been grateful ever since.

We stayed at Mullet Bay Resort and Casino in February 1985. Our first winter vacation together. We loved it so much we went back in August the same year and bought a unit at Mullet Bay which we visited twice each year until Hurricane Luis wiped it out.

The Westin about 15 years ago - a big disappointment - but then we discovered Orient Beach and stayed at Alamanda, L'Hoste, Esmerelda and several privately owned villas and condos. Left last Saturday but we will return!

Mullet Bay in 1971. My parents bought a unit there and took the family down. As Pat said, still under construction, but even at that time, it was heaven on earth, especially for a 14 year old. Obviously stayed there til it got wiped out, one year at Cupecoy then discovered BSV. Been staying at BSV since 1997.

Bobben, stayed at the Summit (sp?) in 1985 and many times thereafter. Always loved the friendly staff and close to Cupecoy beach.
