Management Meet our friendly team

Ricardo Perez General Manager

Ricardo is responsible for all Resort operations. He brings with him a long history of hotel and resort management at the top level of hospitality in various top-rated Caribbean resorts. He assures that the highest level of guest comfort will be provided at Oyster Bay Beach Resort. He takes great personal pride in delivering the finest vacation to our owners and guests.

Paolo Lo Castro Director of Sales

Paolo originally hails from the lovely island of Sicily and is now a U.S. citizen. He has over 20 years of leadership in timeshare sales in the U.S. and at OBBR. He has led our sales staff in seven consecutive years of outstanding sales that have exceeded all expectations. Bravo Paolo!

Mientje Brown Human Resources Manager

Mientje emphasizes the “human” half of her job title and helps ensure a happy and harmonious employee staff. In fact, you can blame her for our staff being so friendly. She not only manages staff recognition and training programs, but also handles governmental affairs and community relations. Mientje was born on our sister Dutch Island of Curacao and raised on St. Maarten — a true island native!

Ninoska Lambert Front Desk Manager

Ninoska was appointed Front Desk Manager at a very young age in 2011. Over the years, she’s developed considerable expertise in her very important job of supervising the Front Desk. Knowing the Front Desk has more contact with guests than any other department, she does everything she can to ensure every encounter meets or exceeds expectations. Like Mientje, Ninoska is a native St. Maartener. As such, she brings pride and a strong sense of belonging to our Resort.

Spartaco Food and Beverage Manager

Spartaco started his career at the world-famous La Samana Hotel thirty years ago where he rubbed elbows with such celebrities as Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis and Diana Ross. Today, he is the maitre’d and manager at Infinity Restaurant. Spartaco has infused Infinity with his personal style and commitment to the highest standards of customer service. He inspired the menu’s Mediterranean and Italian influences and continues to introduce new and innovative ideas for the pleasure of our guests.

Marja Beentjes Manager and Senior Real Estate Agent for Lighthouse Realty

Marja heads up Lighthouse Realty, a general real estate brokerage and rental firm that’s part of our Resort and located within our gates. It conducts an island-wide business with sales listings and rentals available all over St. Maarten/St. Martin. Marja has worked on St. Maarten for almost 25 years. While managing a busy office with island-wide sales and rentals, she also specializes in sales and rental services inside our gates at Spinnaker and Lighthouse. As part of the OBBR team, she brings unique qualifications and island expertise, and the Resort is very fortunate to have her as part of our team.

Wonderful time at Oyster Bay Beach Resort. Great friendly people! Nice facilities and activities.
