The Destination
A single speck in the glistening blue Caribbean Sea, the island of St. Martin/St. Maarten balances two brilliant personalities. History splits the geography of the island into French and Dutch locales, coining its name as St. Martin to the French and St. Maarten to the Dutch. Here, you can hear the shifts in local slang and taste the distinctions in cuisine, while savoring sights that rarely differ in beauty. Towering mountains, white-sand beaches, and vibrant reefs can be found throughout the island, meaning that you don't need to choose sides.

The Digs
Based on a bluff overlooking Simpson Bay on the Dutch side of St. Maarten, many of Flamingo Beach Resort's 240 rooms have ocean panoramas that can be enjoyed from private balconies, terraces, or patios. These modern, brightly colored spaces also feature full kitchens—equipped with stoves, refrigerators, and dishwashers—as well as king-size beds that rest beneath oversized ceiling fans. After a day at sea, return to your studio to watch DVDs from the cushy sleeper sofa.

The Diversions
Best known for its reefs, St. Martin/St. Maarten is a snorkeler's paradise. Glide above the sea life of deserted cays while on a catamaran cruise via Eagle Tours. If you'd rather stay on land, hop on a guided bike tour with Tri-Sport and pedal on both sides of the island. Later, spend your afternoon exploring dozens of beaches or choose to stick to the white sands of the resort, where organized aerobics, Jet Ski rentals, billiards, tennis, and the poolside bar will keep you entertained well past sunset. In the evening, try your luck at the local casino—the resort provides a complimentary shuttle to the tables.

  • "There are so many activities at this resort that you might not return to your room before bedtime. Accommodations have lovely balconies overlooking Simpson Bay, with wicker furniture and bright colors that keep the interior cheery."
