I want it for myself, this place is really great, probably the nicest place i have found in the whole Caribbean, stayed in room 23, which was the owners place when they build the place, it has amazing view, Jacuzzi, separate kids room and a gas barbecue which I used every night.

It’s really a paradise here; I am just afraid I will not be able to get a booking for next year.

So stay away!

Les Balcons was a wonderful way to experience the nicest area in St Maarten's. We stayed in bungaloo #20. It had a king sized bed, a well equipped kitchen, and a recently extended covered deck that had a breath taking view of Oyster bay. We spent each morning enjoying our croissants or baguette's on this deck not wanting to ever leave. There is a french bakery in Orleans that is not to be missed. Our favorite restaurants were Big Fish by Dawn beach, L'estaminet Restaurant and La California in Grand Case. Actually we would love to eat at every restaurant in Grand Case. Make sure you go to Grand Case on Tuesday and eat at a lolo and watch the parade. Carine and David are the perfect host for Les Balcons and are very helpful and knowledgeable people when you have questions. Most people we talked to have been coming back to his complex for years and you understand why after your visit. We spent 12 days there and it was difficult to leave.

Having spent quite a lot time searching for the right place for a first trip to St Martin, we are very happy to have found Les Balcons at Oyster Pond.

We enjoyed our large bungalow suite with a huge terrace overlooking Oyster Pond and its changing colours. The scenery was beautiful, would it be in the morning or at sunset.
Welcome visitors were hummingbirds, sugar birds and some local cats.
There were also a few mosquitoes, and they loved us…

The bungalow was very clean, well equipped, almost luxurious, all of this for a very reasonable price, even though we were in high season. A/C was working normally…

However a rental car is compulsory if you want to visit the island (beaches, restaurants, shopping), as Oyster Pond is quite small, and there are not many shops around.

In terms of nearby restaurants, we tried Quai Ouest, just underneath Les Balcons (very good and reasonable rices), Captain Oliver’s (the place just got a new Manager who is steadily improving things and motivating his team), and also le Planteur (a nice refined mix of French and Creole cuisine).

St Martin was a nice (first) experience for me, and we’ll be back!

Our family of 8 of all different ages stayed at Les Balcons in December and we all loved it ! We stayed in a studio, 1 bedroom and 2 bedroom and all were just beautiful ! David and Carine were wonderful hosts! The views were spectacular. A very quiet, relaxing place to stay just on the french border and close to Dawn Beach. One note, you need a car as taxis are expensive and the buses don't stop close by

We stayed 9 days at the Balcons, and loved the atmosphere. Nothing fancy or gigantic: just a small resort on a hillside facing the marina. Carine and David are wonderful hosts. We stayed in bungalow number 6 on the lower row. The bungalow has all the comfort we need, including a kitchenette. The best part is the wide balcony overlooking the magnificent marina. An also, having breakfast on the balcony in the company of small birds. And also... the view from the pool. And then... the proximity to Quai Ouest restaurant and Captain Oliver's Marina. And did I mention the peace and quiet of the place?
We will be back!
(And why in the world did I write all this? We should keep places like these secret, so we are still able to book a unit next time!)
