Details are everything. There are world-class artists everywhere in the lobby; I saw a Corinna and Norma Trimborn art; remembering the vivid colors. Accompanied by fellow artists Wilfred Moizan, Florence Poirier Nkpa; who grace this stunning contemporary lobby. The standout is sculptures by Mark Templeton.

A smiling reception desk with a concierge is manned 24 hours a day at the entrance of the lobby.

Cupecoy Beach, St Maarten

Known for its beautiful semi-private coves nestled among the limestone cliffs of Sint Maarten, Cupecoy Bay Beach is the perfect place for a taste of romance. It has gained a spot among the best beaches on the island of Saint Martin for its gorgeous views and breathtaking turquoise water.

A Unique Slice of Paradise

The Cliff Airconditiong System

  • After 2020 an entirely new chiller system was installed. An older, second chiller was repaired for backup. Some condos have three to five thermostats to operate the chiller automatically.
  • Each thermostat is connected to a separate valve. When the thermostat calls for cool air the respective valve opens allowing the chilled water to pass through the pipes in the particular thermostat zone and the blower unit comes on and cooling occurs.
  • The valves are somehow metered with a fairly complex computer system to allow billing to each owner.
  • The beauty of the system is that you can zone off each area and only use A/C in that area when needed. For example, you can keep the living area at your desired temperature when you are occupying it, turn off the A/C in the guest bedroom and bath area and keep the master bedroom at a higher temp or even turn off until ready for sleeping.
  • Personally we have been very pleasantly surprised at the bills which come directly from the Cliff. Very low cost compared to my other properties!!
  • Depending on the time of year and whether or not the The Cliff condo is occupied for an entire billing cycle, the bills are still between $15 and $550.
  • If not occupied they can be very low since you can turn the A/C and the fridge completely off.
  • Also the cross ventilation at the Cliff is outstanding and many owners hardly use their A/C during the winter months.

Review of The Cliff in St Maarten

Best place we have ever stayed in St. Maarten

My husband and I have been to St. Maarten about 40 times. We have stayed pretty much everywhere and the Cliff is at the top of the list. We rented from a private individual and he took excellent care of us as he was on the island. ([–]). We had a 2 bedroom, 2.5 bathroom unit and it was huge. The unit was furnished exquisitely with fine linens and comfortable beds. Our view was spectacular and we could hear the ocean loud and clear from the 6th floor. The kitchen was amazing with granite counters and plenty of space. We didn’t cook though as there were great restaurants across the street.
The Cliff has an indoor lap pool and a nice but small outdoor pool. There are plenty of beach chairs around the pool. The spa gave me the best facial I have ever had and the Spa is on the main floor of the Cliff. The staff at the Cliff were friendly and helpful. The grounds were immaculate and beautiful. There is a tennis court where you can play night or day. The walls of the units are thick and we never heard a noise from any other unit.
