I was there in December and Carrefour has been beautiful rebuilt, even nicer than before.  

Interesting Port de Plaisance is now only slightly more than IWW...  definitely a nicer place.  What are the monthly rates?

Unfortunately, the Carrefour is gone.  When we staying there in May the price was only slightly more expensive than IWW.

That would have been my preferred choice (being walking distance from Carrefour), but back then it was considerably more expensive than IWW (Island Water World).  

Nice they finish repairing the pool!

An alternative marina that is within very easy dinghy distance to Island Water World is Yacht Club Port de Plaisance on Cole Bay, Sint Maarten.  Very quiet, not expensive, and includes unlimited free access to a lap pool and a very nice gym.  We spent one month there in May/June 2019 and really enjoyed it.

Hi Courtney,

The island water world I am referring to is in the Dutch side of Simpson bay lagoon.

You have to enter through the bridge.

It is to your Port as you round snoopy island. The contact there is Rhona.

Please mention my name.

Not sure the attachment will show, here are a few pictures post Irma.  

You can see how destroyed what this marina.  

Reminder: Irma was a Category 5 and it was a direct hit.

Good to know. I’m surprised they had much damage. The place is down a long canal, and completely surrounded.....
