The Heineken Regatta

Each year, the first weekend of March, the Heineken Regatta comes to Sint Maarten! Competitive sailing, parties and top entertainment make for an exciting time to visit the island! There are many wonderful spots around the island to view (GCBC often has a front-row seat), and a variety of ways to participate… both on the land and at sea!

Renovations Project Summer / Fall 2024

We are excited to announce our renovation project for the summer and fall of 2024. The surrounding pool area will be rebuilt with a full-access elevator to create a beautiful new pool bar and catering venue with a modern yet natural design to enhance the overall guest experience. For more details, our construction video is available here

The project will take place from July to December 2024, and to better gauge the extent of the progress, we’ve broken it down into three periods:
– Red Period: Demolition / Construction – July 8 through October 15, 2024
– Orange Period: Construction – October 16 through November 15, 2024
– Green Period: Completion – November 16 through December 18, 2024

There will be no renovations taking place in the rooms, but due to the location of the construction site, the overall experience will be affected. We understand that this will be an inconvenience to our guests and are offering a range of comprehensive specials for each period, for the affected room categories. Ocean Two Bedroom, being the farthest away, will have little to no disturbance and will therefore not be included in the offers.

The restaurant will be temporarily relocated to a romantic location under the Seagrape trees and overlooking Petite Plage. Service hours may be affected, although alternative options will be made available.
The pool will be closed for the demolition period for safety reasons but will reopen as soon as it is deemed safe.

Please understand that this is the timeline we hope to follow, but as with any construction project, these dates are subject to change.

Our guest experience remains a priority and we will strive to ensure your comfort during this time.
