Knowing that Baie Orientale was one of the most popular beaches on the island, we were not looking for the accomodation there (we wanted to avoid crowds and overbuilt beaches), but the pictures of the hotel caught my attention and in the end we decided to stay there. After having seen the whole island, I would really recommend to stay... More

I started considering La Plantation after reading the reviews on tripadvisor. i emailed them my reservations dates and loads for questions before finalising the stay, they were both prompt and courteous in their response. We opted to use their taxi service to pick us up from the airport since we were arriving at 9pm at night. The ride to the... More

I felt this place was highly overrated. First off, the tile floors were old and dirty. The only recent replacement was the shower hardware. The beds were sleeping on cardboard. In my party of 8, nobody had a good nights sleep in the 5 nights we were there. Only the room with the flat screen tv worked. The other 3... More

I wanted to love this property. I really did. We booked this place for a spontaneous trip to St. Martin to shop for wedding bands (our savings more than paid for the trip) and while we had a great time overall, next time I’ll look for more luxurious accommodations. Pros: * Location is great. Short walk (5 min?) to Orient... More

My fiance and I stayed here back in January of 2008 and had an amazing time. We had booked the room as part of a package deal so we got a really great rate. The room was set on on the hillside and was very private with a huge balcony that overlooked the ocean. Great place to sit outside in... More

We did a lot of research before selecting La Plantation so I knew most of what to expect. Overall I would rate this property as good. We just returned from a 7 night stay. It met our expectations in most respects. First the positives. The breakfast was very good but didn't vary at all from one day to the next.... More

We just returned from another wonderful stay at La Plantation. It is certainly not what would be classed as a luxury hotel, but it has the following features: 1. Large clean rooms, decorated in bright Caribbean colors, with interesting stencils and artwork on the walls. 2. View of Orient Bay from the verandas of most rooms. 3. Short walk to... More

Stayed here April 4-11 with wife and 10 year old daughter. Stayed in a ground floor studio. Was surprised to have a view of Orient Bay ! Room was clean and adequate, had a pretty good size balcony. Grounds were well landscaped and maintained. Very quiet, safe and relaxing. We were right next door to Green Cay villas which are... More

Stayed here for one week after a good recommendation in Fodor's and positive reviews in Trip Advisor. It was an excellent choice. The hotel, though small by some standards , is cosy, fresh and welcoming. We loved the bright caribbean colours - blue, green, yellow , orange of the foyer, bungalows and rooms giving it a definite French West Indies... More
