This was my first time at La Playa (for my birthday) and I have to say, from the time we arrived until the day we left everything was perfect!! Katy was amazing as was the entire staff…I cannot say enough nice things about them all. From the receptionists and the office staff to the bar tenders, servers, and beach attendants, they were all amazingly friendly and helpful. Honestly, this was the best staff I have ever encountered in my entire life.

The rooms were amazing as well. The AC was cold and the view was so relaxing from our balcony. The kitchen area was amazing with anything you could need to have a meal in your room if you wished. The shower had amazing water pressure and was roomy. The beds were very comfortable and I slept really well there.

The on-site restaurant and bar staff were absolutely amazing and the food was ALL delicious. We never had a meal that wasn’t perfect and that wasn’t cooked to perfection. Do yourself a favor and get a burger and a poke bowl there. Breakfast is included with the room and the breakfast does not disappoint!! We never felt the need to grab breakfast or lunch anywhere else if we were not out exploring. When we wanted to relax on the beach, the beach attendants were great guys and took really good care of us.

Since we had to get COVID-19 tests to enter St. Martin and to return home and Katy arranged for a nurse to come out to the resort and do our tests there to return home. As I said, she went above and beyond and we really appreciated all she did for us.

I highly recommend La Playa to anyone who is looking for the perfect place to stay in St. Martin. This was my best birthday so far and the staff definitely helped make it one I will always remember by sharing my cake with us, including one staff member who shared my birthday! We will definitely be staying at La Playa again as soon as we can! Thank you to them all for making it such an wonderful vacation.

What a nice place! We are a family with 4 teenager boys and we really liked it here. Nice beach club, renovated very clean rooms and a good restaurant. All personnel is really looking after you to have a great time.
The best for us was the great kite surf location. The hotel is on the beach and we had great 15 knots on shore winds. The kite school is nice as well.

La Playa Orient Bay definitely ranks up there as one of my favorites - if not THE favorite hotel of any I've stayed in. Visually - it's near perfect. It occupies a wonderful location right on the beach and is accented by beautiful landscaping that follows you from your room to the beach. Palms, flowing shrubs and grasses give it a truly tropical feel. The room was spacious, airy, and modern and very well thought out with a clever kitchenette and refrigerator built right in. The mattress and furniture were very comfortable and the view from the balcony was amazing (if you can, splurge for a second or third floor room). The facilities were also top-notch - from the lobby and pool all the way through to the bar and restaurant (with it's amazing food) right on the beach overlooking the turquoise waters of Orient Bay.

And while all this seems great enough, what really puts La Playa above and beyond is the service. Katy, the manager, could not have been more accommodating and helpful from our initial emails to book the room through check-out. Chris and the staff in the restaurant were fantastic, Nicholas on the beach seemed to anticipate what we'd need before we even asked and GP's cocktails and sense of humor can't be beat. Every staff member (I wish I could name all of them here!!) seemed to go above and beyond and it's what transformed what otherwise was a really nice hotel to one in a class of its own!!

La Playa is one of my FAVORITE hotels located on the French side of the island. The grounds are beautiful and lush with greenery. The rooms have gorgeous views and are chicly decorated along w/ being super functional with kitchenettes should you need them. The beds are comfortable and the bathroom has the best lighting!

La Playa Bar & Restaurant, situated on the beach, serves amazing drinks, delicious sushi, & creative daily specials. They also serve breakfast right on the beach if that's your preference. The vibe is cool and they music is good. Laurent and his team are always cheerful and remember your name when saying hello.

Lastly, the staff is absolutely wonderful from the moment you arrive and the manager, Katy is always accessible and will make you feel right at home. I've just had my third stay and cannot wait to get back!

My wife I wanted to do something special after getting vaccinated. We chose Orient Bay on the Island of St Martin. We chose La Playa because the rooms are right at the beach. Bar and restaurant are on the beach. The room are great modern and clean. Check in and out are very easy. Jiaro and Kathy at the front desk are awesome. Very friendly, helpful and excellent english. GP is a great bartender. the food was excellent at the restaurant. Nice breakfast on the beach every morning. Nicholas does great job taking care of you while using the chairs on beach. He will bring food drinks and anything else you need to you. Dinner at the restaurants at the square every evening.
The weather was great mid 80s with a light breeze.
