We stayed at the Alamanda for a week on a girl's trip. The staff was very accomodating. They were generous with the towels (not always the case on St. Martin) and very helpfull and courteous. We has a two story room with upstairs and downstairs beds and it was comfotable with great proximity to Orient Beach and a little shopping...

Although not terrible, the Alamanda is a bit of a disappointment. It is not a resort by any means but more of a motel on the beach. The place was fairly clean but there were always buckets, mops, bags of trash or dirty laundry in the hallways - definitely distracted from the ambiance of a "tropical paradice". The hotel staff...

We stayed at the Alamanda for one week in April 2007. While we enjoyed our stay, we would only give the hotel an ok rating. We had an "ocean view" room but there was no way to see the ocean. It is getting a little behind on maintenace. Broken tiles in the stairs, hems coming out of the drapes, and...

The Alamanda turned out to be the perfect choice for us on the French side. Our 2 BR duplex accommodation was beautiful, spacious, clean, and comfortable. Located on a prime corner of the north building, the main duplex floor (2nd floor of hotel) had a large balcony with nice views of the ocean and pool. The full bath had plenty...

The Alamanda books itself as a 4 star Resort......it is neither. A 4 star Resort should have many if not all amenities that we are used to. Such Amenities as premium bedding, restaurant, bar, entertainment. And simple things such as vending machines, alarm clock in room, notepads, pens, a folder describing the hotel and it's amenities. The Alamanda does boast...

We enjoyed our stay at the Alamanda. We were there for 5 nights. Rooms were very clean and spacious. Staff were very friendly and courteous. Little village nearby with several good restaurants, and convenience stores. Location is right across from Orient Beach. If you like your beaches crazy busy, with tour buses, beach vendors than this is the ideal location...

Just got back from Alamanda and writing to let you know our impressions. Let me start by saying that I'm lucky that my husband and I can have fun anywhere, so yes, we had fun, but I was very disappointed in this non-resort. First, the website photos are misleading and not really representative of the environment. Also, while I am...

We had been to St. Martin twice before while Cruising and always went to Orient Beach and loved it. This time we decided to spend two weeks in St. Martin so we could really get to know it. The Alamanda was the perfect place for us. Very friendly and quiet. The beach is amazing and we spent a least a...

We vacation annually on St. Martin, this place gets to be a welcomed habit. This was our first stay at Alamanda, but won't be our last. The location is perfect and the service is outstanding!

Our family just returned from an 8 day stay at the Alamanda, and I highly recommend it. The rooms were clean and comfortable, and included a lovely and spacious terrace.
