I have read lots of funny reviews of this place so I think I could add my experience. I have never seen or met a rude staff. Everybody at the counter was so pleasant and collaborative. Nice french people speaking also English. Not a single one rude. I can imagine that people complaining about that are rude people themselves. The... More

The room was clean, and the staff was friendly. There was some post hurricane construction underway during our stay, but they were working to keep it from affecting guests. The hotel is just off the beach, and there are plenty of water activities available nearby (for a price). Not a high end hotel, but perfect for the area if you... More

I stayed at this hotel Nov 8th-16th 2014 and it was my 5th time, 2nd under the new owner. Great Location, walking distance to many restaurants and the beach is right there. Reasonable price. Special thanks to. Kelly at the front desk Gregory servicing us on the beach Little Emma hanging out in the pool with us

Travelers beware: this hotel is okay, but very outdated and many of the staff seem rude and aloof. The best part: the convenience of walking right to the beach and the super friendly and helpful bartender, Bea, at the bar near the pool. Otherwise, my room smelled of mildew and was filled with bugs (I even found bugs in my... More

About 20th time at this hotel. Not fancy, but so close to the beach it is well worth it. Staff is friendly. Pool is nice after a day at the beach. Rooms a little dated, but who spends time in their room.

Continental breakfast was delicious, fresh warm pastries in the morning, yum. Although our second story room didn't have a great view due to many palm trees, you could hear the ocean. Beach is a thirty second walk. Pool was very clean and refreshing. The whole grounds are very well kept and you can see they are doing continuous upgrades. Now... More

We arrived a few weeks after the hurricane and there were still some flooding issues on the island. That being said, we checked in when it was raining - they gave us a very nice first floor room. However, before we could bring our bags in, the rainwater started rising toward the door and within 15 minutes, we asked for... More

After reading so many differing reviews on this place, I was a little bit perplexed about what we were going to find when we arrived in St. Martin last week. After spending a great week on St. Martin, I think I figured out why this place has raving fans and visitors who will never return. Here is what you need... More

Everything about this hotel is acceptable however on the beach the cruise ship clientele takes priority over the hotel guest. Note the attached pictures of the comfortable lounge chairs that are available to outside guests or as I was told cruise ships guests. When we first arrived I was told by beach personnel that hotel guests could not sit on... More

Katie the manager, Sandy at the desk, Cecile for breakfast, Gregory on the beach all took time to get to know us and always greeted with a smile. We very much enjoyed our stay. There was a hurricane on Monday and we arrived Friday. Everybody was working very hard to tidy up the storm damage. The room was adequate, clean... More
