My whole family stayed at Amsterdamn in July.....it is a perfect spot. bus right in front. We had not stayed at this hotel before but will be staying there going forward. You will love it. We love Madamme Jeanettes, Smokey Joes, Marandi, Gostove. There are just so many wonderful places. They also have good breakfast right at the hotel.
On the beach right in front of the hotel, they have jet skiing and para sailing.....that was a blast. If you are into snorkeling, I would suggest packing your own gear. There are quite a few places you can get to for some great snorkeling.
Don't overpack....Amsterdamn has washers and dryers for $1 so pack a bit of detergent in case you want to do a load of laundry.
Can I get Madi's email to set up tour time/date??
We really want to snorkel, should we bring equipment with us or is it
easy to rent on island?? Disappointed at St Martin last year- shacks on
the beaches were all rented out!
Any other suggestions on things to bring? I like the clothespin for beach chairs (the wind) and bring insulated mug-we are staying at the tamarijn hotel.

The absolute highlight of our last trip was a tour with Madi -- you can call her at 746-1397 or 749-9414 or email her at firstname.lastname@example.org. (you may not get an email response and might have to wait to call her when you get there -- she works alone and doesn't always get to her email!) There's quite a bit of information on the Forum from people who have also gone with her. Just use the Search option at the left and type in "Madi". She's a gem and will show you places you wouldn't otherwise see.
