Jevon did an excellent job in processing the paperwork for the car. The transaction was fast and the car was very reasonable. I keep coming back to Ace in St. Maarten. A very good value for your money
6.0 GoodFeb 18 2022
Car had +61000 miles, but felt older! Lots of rattles amplified by rough island roads. Trunk was a disgrace with interior falling apart! Trunk lid opened several times unexpectedly when driving!! A/C system cooling was also weak.
10.0 ExcellentNov 15 2021
Car was a little beat up but that is typical for St. Maarten. All damage was properly recorded so no problems on return.
7.9 GoodOct 11 2021
The gentlemen at Ace were great to work with fort our car rental. We never use credit cards, only our bank debit card. We hadn’t even thought about needing it for a deposit. The guys at Ace found a solution for this issue that was fair to both sides. They didn’t have the car type that we had reserved but it really wasn’t a problem. We were provided with a car that fit our needs for the weeks we spent on the island

I rented a small Volkswagen hatchback. It had 5k km on it so very new and clean. A driver took me from the airport to the office right as I got outside. Friendly staff as well as a clean and modern lobby. No issues whatsoever.
10.0 ExcellentMar 7 2017
Very clean. Appeared to be almost a new car. Had the car for 7 weeks. Got good gas mileage. The staff were very helpful in answering questions.. Quick and easy pickup and return. I went to the beach frequently and consequently collected a fair amount of sand on the floor. They said that normally they would need to charge a cleaning fee, but waived that charge because of the length of the rental.The car was almost new and I had some questions about how some things worked,such as the air conditioner, and rear window wipers, and engine iddeling issues. The owners manual was entirely in a foreign language and was useless,but the people at the car rental place were very knowledgeable and answered all my question.

Our #1 Choice for St MaartenShuttle just outside of SXM Airport takes you to the close-by but drivable distance to pick up your car. Always reserve your car prior to your trip for best price online at Thrifty.com, finding an online discount code for example 10% off. For insurance, if you have an American Express, sign up through AmX prior to your trip for a one-time charge of $24.95 on your American Express upon car rental charge; It covers everything except Liability, for the duration of your rental time (ours was 2 weeks) and safely decline Thrifty's daily insurance charges. (If you think your credit card covers you automatically, you may be very surprised just how little those free included coverage actually covers!) Bring a Contract copy with you. Thrifty is pleasant and they have decent prices. You can find slightly cheaper deals elsewhere, but beware of the extra charges others will likely add on.It is customary in St Maarten to sign a blank credit card receipt, just in case the car is damaged or stolen, etc. But they all do this. After numerous years of rentals through Thrifty, we've never had any add-ons we did not expect.

Just okWhile they didn't have my car ready, they gave me another one. The car was cheap relative to others. Overall it was ok and what I expected in the Caribbean.Car wasn't ready for me. Car was not really clean. The van to and from the airport was not very clean and they jammed us into the vehicle.

It worked like a charm. Everything was on time. Good pickup service. And good people. Would use Alamo next year when I return.
3.6 MediocreMar 20 2017
Very disappointingNothingVery expensive to drive a heap -- multiple scrapes and dings, windshield wipers were smeary, tire pressure light came on within first day, check engine light came on on third day, AC was weak (and if turned up made a continuous clicking sound that wouldn't quit until it was turned back down. Drive like a bucket of bolts, and cost nearly $700 for a week (with insurance, which seemed important given the condition of the car, not wanting anything blamed on me). They also take a $750 deposit against your credit card, which they return to you if they deem there is no further damage. We took pictures of the car before leaving the lot, and got that money back.

Try somewhere else if you want a place with servicGot a free upgrade...because they did not have our car in.They asked the hotel so they could reach me to replace the car, then decided I should just stop back in.....stop my vacation to see if they have the car.....not to be a brat, but customer service is their job. I called to check, and they did not pick up or have an answering machine.....don't expect much help. When I returned the car, they said I owed an extra day, and I should check my paper work. I said no, and made them look at the electronic reservation. They copied the item down wrong...keep the reservation information handy as they might try to get an extra day out of you.
10.0 ExcellentOct 30 2016
Very good value. Car functioned very well.Car (Jeep minivan) was bigger than I wished I'd rented for a small Carribbean island. Discovered the check engine light was on and in concern took it back to the rental office where I was assured not to worry....they had checked out the vehicle thoroughly before rental.

We were giving a smaller car than what we paid for. The employee said they didn't have any other cars to give us. The car had been wrecked several times. The car didn't have much power so it didn't perform well on the hilly roads. Very disappointed.

I had ordered a "standard" car, since we were 2 couples with a considerable amt. of luggage & we recieved an intermediate Kia, in which the driver's side door handle literally broke off the door the second time we opened that door, & we were charged for it "because we broke it" by normally opening the door !! They did exchange the car for a similar one the next day.

Don’t be fooled by the cheap pricing!! This Nu car rental is not at the Airport, so you will not see signs for them. Another nice guy from a major agency called them for me to pick us up. Then they pick you up in your car, drive you around the airport to a 3rd party agency acting as Nu. It’s a rinky dink place, and not written anywhere, it’s a mandatory purchase of LDW for $6/day!! Also they gave a small economy car as a full size car! In hindsight, reserve from a major car rental.
8.0 ExcellentMay 5 2021
Easy to book and price was under $50 for the day in smallest car offered.The pick up was a bit to do, when I arrived no one was at the office and I couldn’t reach anyone by phone but the neighboring car rental attendant called them and they arrived quickly. In their defense, I had only booked the car a little over an hour before I arrived. The car was moderately clean and easy check out and back in. I would rent from them again if I need.

Top tips for hiring a car at Simpson Bay Princess Juliana Airport

  • When you reserve a car rental at Simpson Bay Princess Juliana Airport, you are sure to have reliable transportation for your duration in the city. The city is not known for having a particularly extensive public transportation system, so driving is still one of the best ways to get to your destination. Having your own Simpson Bay Princess Juliana Airport car rental also means that it will be easy for you to travel to nearby cities and transport any luggage that you may have.
  • Depending on your specific needs, there are a few different models for you to choose from for your Simpson Bay Princess Juliana Airport car rental. For larger groups of travelers, consider booking either a passenger van or a minivan. If you will be going on long road trips, it’s always convenient to have an SUV. If you will mainly be staying in the city center, both compact and mini models can be convenient choices. Travelers that are trying to save money may prefer to book an economy vehicle.
  • Once your rental period has ended, you can return your car rental at Simpson Bay Princess Juliana Airport by bringing it back to the same parking area where you first grabbed your vehicle. Each company has its own specific area to park its fleet, so make sure to remember where your respective brand keeps its rentals. As soon as you start to approach the airport, you will see signs that will help guide you to where you can drop your car off. Some companies will allow you to return your rental after hours if you have a particularly early or late flight.
  • Simpson Bay is a particularly popular destination for tourists, so it’s not uncommon for its roads to be congested. To avoid being stuck in traffic as much as possible, try to schedule your rental pick up and drop off around rush hour, which usually occurs between 6 and 8 am and 5 and 7 pm. The city has a few roads that will typically be more congested than others, such as Airport Road and Simpson Bay Causeway.
  • Book your car hire at Simpson Bay Princess Juliana Airport at least 6 weeks before your trip in order to get a below-average price
