About us

The St. Maarten Timeshare Association or SMTA for short was founded in 1994. We are an association of resort properties, formed with the ideals of making our timeshare product the best possible, and ensuring a healthy industry. This means that our customers’ needs and expectations must be met and exceeded.


In order to accomplish our goals we, although competitors, we have cooperated in many areas, including promoting the adoption of consumer protection legislation and have worked diligently to combat unfavorable taxation.

We share ideas on how to run our properties efficiently and where to buy supplies and have been engaged in joint staff training courses.


Our Dollar-a-Day program has been a huge success in cooperation with our timeshare owners.


Our website is geared to promoting the island and of course our member properties. Please feel free to send suggestions to our website administrator with ideas on how to improve our site.
