Thanks Pat. I thought you or someone else shared that but couldn't find. Will get to St. Masrten in 12 days and would like to spend a beach day (or two) there. For the record, we stayed at El Zafiro a few years ago and enjoyed it.
Last time we went there as long as you are eating and drinking no charge for the chairs. FYI two other beach bars just down the beach Karater and Mary’s Boon Hotel and beach bar restaurant. I’d try those also and pick your favorite. Lots of good options you don’t want to miss.
