I stayed here from 2/25-3/1 with a large group. It's a beautiful, well maintained resort. The rooms are great. Very clean, spacious & pretty. Comfy beds, all with an ocean view. I was inside the 2 bedroom cottages on the beach, and OMG, simply stunning. The beach is also perfection. Very private. Even with the hotel being sold out, there was still always plenty of room at the beach and the pool. Never had any problems getting chairs. My only negative thought about this resort is the food. It was really disappointing. I had breakfast there everyday, dinner 2 nights and lunch on the beach one day. I think the best thing I ate was chips & guacamole. Don't even try to get steak- even people who love an extremely rare steak said it was way too rare. Even after we asked them to make it more well done. I heard that in the past the food has always been outstanding. Maybe they got a new chef. Or maybe it was because it was such a large group. Nonetheless, that is my only drawback. Given that, would I stay here again? Yes. There are plenty of outstanding restaurants in St. Martin! Luckily, this resort isn't an all inclusive.

Room tip: Room 107 is a great choice if you can't afford the beach cottages. It has a giant walk in closet w/ vanity, so its very spacious. Plus, the toilet seat is heated!!!!

My wife and I were here for a business conference from 2/25/15 - 3/1/15. Even though we were with a large group occupying over 80% of the hotel capacity, we found the service level at the resort to be outstanding. Everything from room service to concierge to beach service were all excellent. The internet service was also excellent. The bed was comfortable, and the AC worked well. Tennis pro, Angel, was terrific. The hard court and soft courts are in excellent condition. Our breakfast buffets were outstanding. The evening buffets were also outstanding and perfectly prepared.

The grounds are beautiful and well maintained. The resort is inside a locked and attended gate and seems to be very safe and secure.

We highly recommend this resort.

Room tip: All rooms have ocean view. Recommend a top floor room with a balcony.

When one first arrives in St Matin one can only be derepressed by the tackines. But 10 minutes in a car one turns off the road to Marigot and enters a different wold.
Immaculately maintained and updated by the former Orient Express La Samana exudes a timeless elegance for its 8 or so units spread along the shore.
Our suite was adequate in size, recently updated and had direct bech access.
The breakfasts were as good as anywhere and I loved the ratatouille they served some mornings.
Lunches were by the pool bar.
And dinners , the great thing about La Samana is it is 15 minutes to Grande Casse where one can choose from literally a dozen good dining spots (it is even closer to Marigot).
The Trellis, their restaurant I found a little formal and stuffy.
My only complaint, and one that means I won't return when I need to be really connected it the internet. SLOW & LOUSEY. Swisscom their provider just doesn't cut it.
When I complained I was given double talk about their problems yet at Cap Jalucca on nearby and significantly less developed Anguilla the internet was perfect, even on the beach.
If they put the same effort into internet they do in baking the worlds best macaroons (which they do) the internet problem would be solved.

Dear Venamo,
Thank you for your review. I am very pleased to read that your suite and the food was to your liking. I am sorry to hear that the internet connection was too slow for you. We are in the process of switching providers to be able to offer a faster wifi for our guests. I will make sure to share your comments regarding our macaroons with our Pastry Chefs. Hope to see you back soon.

If you are looking for a great place to stay with an excellent location, fantastic service and wonderful amenities, La Samanna is the place! We stayed at La Samanna on our honeymoon and were so pleased with our choice. Surely it is pricey but it is well worth it, particularly for a special occasion.
