U cannot beat the location of this hotel if u r a beach person. Because we r past visitors we were able to negotiate good fee. Call direct! This hotel needs major repairs. They have done Band-Aid jobs at repairs too long. The beds r bamboo pole frames with mattresses that DO NOT go high enough. This causes you to... More

We stayed at this hotel for one week in March 2015. The rooms are a little tired but comfortable and clean. Large king size bed. Great atmosphere. Pool. Beachfront restaurant and bar. Nice continental breakfast. But most of all: super friendly staff! We loved the fact that it is not an all-inclusive; there are so many good restaurants in St-Martin!... More

The people in & around (workers & residents alike) the hotel were very friendly. My only gripe would be the stove in the room (the range took over an hour to try and boil water & it still didnt). Just do not go in expecting to COOK your meals in the room.

This was our 4th year staying at L' Hoste. Katy, Kelly, and Sandy do such a great job of making everyone feel at home. We just returned last week and I can't say enough about their service. We ended up staying an additional 4 days because of snow on the east coast. My husband needed heart medicine from the pharmacy... More

Our first visit to SXM and to L'Hoste hotel for a 13 day vacation. We selected L'Hoste based on its location right on the beach, and had a couple of concerns from the pre-trip reviews. Verdict - it all turned out very well, and we were pleased. The mention of bedbugs was fiction in our experience - there are mosquitos... More

This was a late booking but I research on Trip Advisor before I book anything. This one did not pan out. The hotel is made up of three storey walk ups of nine units in a block. One part of the complex has been renovated and looks presentable but we were placed on the other side, furtherest from the beach... More

We have been staying at L'Hoste for years. The people are friendly and the location is the best on Orient Beach. Any time we have had a problem the staff has been quick to respond. We are going back again this year for 28 days.

We have been going to L'Hoste for the past 5 years. When we return each year, we feel like we are visiting family. Kelly is awesome at the front desk. She goes out of her way to help and be accommodating. The hotel is steps to the beach which is super convenient. The place isn't fancy, but it is a... More

What a great stay we had. We stayed five nights in December and really enjoyed it. All of the staff is so helpful, friendly and enjoyable. Our room was on the 3rd floor (view of the ocean) and was perfect for us. Plenty of room, nice bed, clean even thought it was older. Best part for us was everything was... More
