I am frankly surprised by the last two negative reviews of this hotel - makes it seem like we stayed in different hotels. My wife, son and I stayed at L'Hoste last week and have a wonderful things to say about this hotel. The first floor room where we stayed (#114) was large and well appointed, with two king-size beds,... More

Spent one night here in early July. I'm glad we only stayed one night! While the location is good, the hotel is not. This hotel is in serious need of updating. Floor tiles were cracked, linens were worn out, toilet rusty, etc. Ants were everywhere! The continental breakfast consisted of bread, croissants, corn flakes, oatmeal and juice. While the restaurant... More

Nothing short of a third world hotel...ants everywhere. Broken sinks. No wifi in the rooms...stray cats wondering everywhere........had to switch rooms the second day.......went to visit my brother at the royal palm in Simpson bay and was blown away by his wonderful hotel arrangements.....if you want to waste your money by all means stay here......

My family and I just returned from a great vacation at L'Hoste. I was pleasantly surprised by how much we loved it! In the past, my husband and I had stayed in Grand Case, but this time we were traveling with our children, so L'Hoste's amenities and location appealed to us. From the moment that we checked into the hotel,... More

L'hoste hotel is an excellent hotel , the staff is sooo friendly and it's an ideal beach spot. But Avoid by all means their watersport activity center - Watersport Le a Playa or Parasail Evasion as they have no proper insurance to cover you in case of emergencies .

Our visited started with a pleasant greeting at the front desk by Kelly and Katy. These two young ladies went out of their way to make sure our first stay at L’Hoste was a great experience. Our room was close to the beach and on the third floor. We had a spacious room with a comfortable king size bed, a... More

I stayed in this Hotel for a short week end in St.Maarten, just for one night... Everything it was pleasant, a good welcoming, a very nice location and for sure, the room was spacius, clean and big for two people. We tasted the restaurant, close to the Hotel, in front of the beach...and it was good too. Maybe, the only... More

My wife and I spent a week at L'Hoste dead smack in the center of Orient Bay. The location is ideal, there are several restaurants within walking distance so you won't need a taxi for dinner. We still recommend renting a car even if you do not plan on driving everyday. The hotel is directly on the beach so you... More

We enjoyed L'Hoste Hotel, even just for one night. We checked in easy, had a great second floor balcony room, had a "sort of" view of ocean through the palm trees. Comfy bamboo bed, nice shower. Walk to beach through La Playa restaurant / bar. Beach was very quiet the Saturday we were there, which was fine. La Playa plays... More
