Even though you can't see the ocean from this hotel, it is practically on the beach. The rooms are spacious but does need some repairs and updating. The mattress was not very comfortable and there were broken tiles in the bathroom. A continental breakfast is included in the outdoor restaurant on the La Playa beach, which is very convenient but...

We liked the location, facility and personnel. It is an international hotel and the staff is multi-lingual. Set on Orient Beach, the view is spectacular. Desptie what some prior guests have said about the hotel being too far from the ocean, L'Hoste is one of the closest. There is plenty of shopping and excellent cuisine. The hotel is striving to...

L'Hoste is located on Orient Beach in St. Martin and is in the heart of the fun. The hotel is nice and stiving to move up from a three star rating to a four star. With a new owner bigger ambitions are beginning complete with property upgrades and a new chef in the La Playa restuarant. The new menu is... More

This is about the hotel only. I love Orient Bay, St. Martin, the weather, food, drink, and the wonderfully friendly people. But this review is Only about the hotel, not those other things. I don't like sleeping on a worn out dirty mattress in a warm and humid room while being bitten by mosquitoes, which is what L'Hoste offers at... More

This was our 2nd stay at L'Hoste on Orient Beach. I had read other reviews after we booked to find the hotel owners had changed from our first visit. We were pleased to find everything even better than our first visit. Clean room, excellent a/c, and friendly helpful staff. The staff at La Playa were great, thank you Romain &... More

Yes, some of the other reviewers are right that some thing are a little old already but not every hotel can be new or renovated. Both the hotel and our room was very clean and spacious. Everybody in the hotel was truly friendly. The location near/at the beach was perfect. The breakfast was included in our room rate and was... More

L'Hoste Hotel has a prime spot on Orient Beach. The beach attendant was great...he balanced courtesy to those who belonged, but was very good about keeping cruise shippers from plopping down on that properties loungers. The breakfast at the restaurant was continental...but very good for that. The front desk staff was very helpful and pleasant. Our room was fine...the bed... More

Great Beach Location at a great price! Especially for the caribbean. Also breakfast is included in the price. The only improvement is that I wish their restaurant was open for dinner or at least drinks in the evening.
