Stayed here for the Honeymoon. Was at first nervous not staying at a resort, but it was worth it. We rented a car, drove up easily to the French side, and everything went great from there. Staff here helpful, room was perfect. Morning breakfast in the room is the only way to wake up. Just leave the menu on the...

I am writing this review now after spending a few hellish days stuck in an airport (yes we were caught in the storm with a 13 month old) and am feeling a bit melancholy not to be in St. Martin anymore or at this magnificent hotel. . First of all, most likely all of you reading this site are discerning...

We spent 5 very pleasant nights at this hotel in a beautiful location on the French side of the island. The first week of December was also a very quiet time of the year.which was just what we were looking for. We loved our loft room. The bed was great, there was a huge open shower, and the kitchen with...

despite our reservations, we chose l'esplanade on the strength of reviews from this website. i was pleased to find that all of my worries were baseless. *distance from the beach*: yes, l'esplanade is not right on the ocean. but it's in such a gorgeous location (overlooking grand case) that it barely matters. you can access petit plage and grand case...

We have stayed at this property for several years. We go to St. Maarten 2 x per year and have been doing that for 14 years. So we've stayed at, and inspected a lot of hotel properties. Plus, I was in the hotel biz for many years, so I am very particular. This small, privately run hotel is wonderful. You...

Rooms were clean and large, pool area was nice and staff was friendly. Not much more you can ask for. Located on MUCH less touristy French side of the island. Also, walking distance to town. L'Escapade restaurant in Grand Case is not to be missed. Also, very close to small airport (grand case) if you are traveling to other islands...

Everything you dream a hotel to be! Clean, friendly & helpful staff, accommodating and above all just drop dead gorgeous! No detail is left out. The bed was so comfortable I didn't want to return home to mine. You can walk to some of the best restaurants on the island, some amazing beaches, bars, markets, shops.... everything is within reach....

We just returned from our vacation in St. Martin and have to say that the Hotel L'Esplanade is our favourite hotel ever for what it offers. And thats the key.

L'Esplanade never disappoints. We love going back. Every stay it's better than the previous time, as they always seem to be improving what already seemed great! Don't hesitate. You'll love it there.
