We have been going there for 9 years - this will be our 10th. The staff is friendly, accommodating and very helpful. Breakfast is very sufficient and included, however you can always order what you want for extra. Dinner is great, very tasty and worth the price. The rooms are clean, beds comfortable, AC reliable, and the Veranda for each... More

This was our second visit to La Plantation. We went last year and loved it. It is not really a hotel per se and is definitely not an all inclusive resort. It is a series of triplex bungalows built on a hill. We again asked for an upper level room and got the same room (881) which has a magnificent... More

We decided to take a cruise that started in St Martin in January . If it snows the day of the cruise you may miss the boat. We left Thursday for our Saturday cruise. My travel agent suggested either La Plantation, with a 5 minute walk to the beach or a resort on the beach for another $200. We opted... More

This was our 3rd stay here, and in past, we loved this resort, have fond memories. We booked with Air Canada Vacations -never do that! Nice to see the resort was fully booked.

We decided to book this report based on the reviews we read on trip advisor. This resort is exactly as described. I would describe it more as pension or bungalows within a gated community. Our bungalow was next to pool and i think it made a world of a difference. Breakfast is served pool side daily so we could walk... More

This was our 3rd time at the hotel. We have stayed in all 3 styles of rooms. This past December 2011 we stayed at the top row for the first time. The view was lovely.

We found the hotel room very run down. Lighting was poor, the bathroom needs renovations and the kitchen applainces were rusted. We had a problem with bugs (worms) that could not be resolved.

This is not a 5-star hotel, so if that is what you are expecting - don't go to St Martin. You might not find it anywhere. But with that said, this is a great hotel. We got upgraded to a large suite with a connecting smaller hotel room. It had all the comforts of home. Nice living room area, large... More

It has been 5 years (really, that long?) since I first reviewed La Plantation. This week I stayed there for one night only, on a layover in SXM. Since this is the third time I have stayed there since my first review, I thought maybe an update was in order. Well there's not much to update really. What I experienced... More
