Dear Sam,
I just finished reading your newsletter and soaked in every word. We vacation in February and I have been reading your newsletters for years. I especially enjoy reading it when our trip is coming up. I really enjoy hearing about the changes that have taken place to the island since we were last there. I am printing the letter now so I can start thinking about restaurants to visit, activities to enjoy, and places to visit. We have been coming to St. Maarten for about 15 years now and find something new to do each time. Just wanted to let you know I really do enjoy your newsletter! Thanks so much! St. Maarten resident for at least 2 weeks out of the year!

"We used The Value Guide on our trip and our trip would not have been the same without it! I will recommend it to anyone traveling to St. Maarten/St. Martin. We wish you had a travel guide for every location we wish to travel! Thank you!"

"We just got back from a wonderful week in St. Martin, made all the more perfect by the Value Guide ... thanks."

"... great time visiting the various beaches; met Gus and Janet on Rouge Beach ...
We really used your guide and ended up at alot of the places you recommended. We did go to Touch of Gold and bought a necklace for Marilyn with a diamond heart piece that she loves. They were very nice and helpful ... had dinner on our anniversary at La Samanna, was the best ... All in all we had fun, met some interesting people, got some relaxation (when I wasn't driving) and the food was as good as you said. Thanks Sam for your help"

My husband and I have been to St. Martin for the last 2 years, and have enjoyed this "hidden treasure" of an island immensely. Your site was a great help to us to gather information on what to do, and where to go. What a great "extra gift" to run into a contest for a chance of a lifetime 3 year running vacation!!!!! I am glad that I am still considered on your mailing list, as I know some companies do not keep these lists for very long, and loose track of their clients. Whoever wins your fabulous contest will be hooked like we are to come back year after year.
Thank you for the opportunity to enter, and keep in touch. Chriss, Harrisburg, PA

"I want to thank both of you for the valuable information that the Value Guide supplied us for our trip to St. Martin/St. Maarten. We loved our time there, but we especially liked the French Side."

"I wanted to thank you for the great advice that you gave in the Value Guide to St. Maarten--- we just returned and absolutely loved it. I printed the Guide from the web as our official tourist handbook and it was very helpful. I expecially appreciated your coverage of La Samanna-- hands down the most romantic dinner spot I have ever visited! Thanks so much for your helpful hints... We'll go back as soon as we can!"

Join the St.Maarten Regatta Beach Clean-Up on Saturday January the 26th, 2019!

With the start of the new year, organizers of the St. Maarten Regatta are already in full preparations for the 7th annual Beach Clean-Up. The St. Maarten Regatta Beach Clean-Up will take place on Saturday January the 26th from 9 AM to 12:30 PM at Kim Sha Beach. Together with the Local youth, the Regatta Foundation will start the morning with cleaning Kim Sha Beach, followed by various sport activities.

The morning will start at 9:00 AM sharp with the Beach Clean Up. There will be two different age categories, 6-12 years and 13-18 years. The children will be classified in one of the two age categories. The teams will have 30 minutes to compete against each other and collect the most waste as possible. After the Beach Clean Up, a quiz will be held by the Nature Foundation to make the children more aware about the negative effects of pollution on marine life and environment. The last part of the morning will be filled with various sporting games organized by LAB Sport Academy. Come and join us for this exciting day filled with activities.

Domino’s pizza will provide everyone with a delicious piece of pizza at the end of the day!

Anouk van Loon, organizer of the Beach Clean-Up is excited to see the amount of waste being collected. “This Beach Clean Up is a combination of education and fun. Children become more aware of the effects that pollution has on the Island and rest of the world. This Beach Clean Up is an event where you, together with your friends can help the island and have fun as well. Furthermore, this Clean-up also counts towards achieving community hours and do not forget that there are prizes available for the best cleaners, the winners of the quiz and the winners of the sports activities.”

This year’s Beach Clean-Up will be provided by LAB Sports Academy, the St. Maarten Nature Foundation, Trisport, Funtopia, The Scuba Shop, Intertoys, Ocean Explorers, Random Wind, Fiji Water, Domino’s, Shipwreck Shop, Rainforest adventures, Timeless Spirits, Meadowlands, Carrefour, Seaside Nature Park, Carousel and Print & Sign express.
