We had an evening between staying at the Horny Toad on the Dutch side and Sol e Luna on the French side and needed somewhere to stay. We checked in at Orient Bay Hotel and went to go get some dinner. We left around 5pm and returned around 8pm to find the door handle to our slider sitting on the... More

March 22, 2008 This was our fourth trip to St. Martin. The Orient Bay Hotel is lovely - quiet, away from traffic and noisy tourists. You must rent a car though - the hotel isn't on a beach, and is not walking distance from anything (unless you enjoy walking far distances in blistering heat!). We used Best Deal, located at... More

We stayed at the Orient Bay Hotel for March Break 2008. This was our first time back in 13 years. We had our honeymoon on the island, and now with our 6 year old, we returned. We chose the Orient Bay Hotel because we know that Orient Bay is the best known beach on the island. It still is a... More

The hotel is just north of Orient Beach, a brisk 6-minute downhill walk (I timed it), or can drive & park. We stayed in a 2-bedroom villa which sleeps 4 only. Combined kitchen & living area, front patio with table & 4 chairs, back patio with no furniture. Phone & satellite TV. Note: No hair dryer, & U.S. models don't... More

We stayed at the oreint bay hotel during the first week of december 2005. This was our second stay there in three years. Although we paid for Le Jardin de Chevris, the affiliated group of studios, we were actually given a duplex apartment in the orient bay hotel for the same price. francois at reception was extremely helpful with all...

Just got back from one week at Orient Bay Hotel. We stayed in a two bedroom Villa which was great as we were travelling with an eight year old. It was a lot of space for the money, air conditioned and very clean and comfortable. We also found that there was always lots of parking and the gardens are very... More

We arrived in late October 2003. I can say the place is charming, clean, and good service. It was as described. I must say that its about a 10-minute walk to the beach, Orient Beach, and not "on the beach" as some would believe. That didn't matter, because we rented a car (which they arranged for us, $200 for the... More

We just got back from a week in St. Martin. We were booked at the Orient Bay Hotel. When we arrived we were told that they did not have the rooms we booked--the Mezzanine Villa-- and offered us the Studio instead. We looked at the room and it was dirty, in poor condition (broken stairs) and was located 1 block... More
