I will agree with most of these reviews- unbeatable location, super friendly staff, nice and clean. Our family room was nice and spacious with two huge and comfortable US king size beds- extra top sheets were not a problem and delivered with smiles. Nice clean bathroom with big shower stall- room in need of a new lick of paint, but... More

This was our sixth visit to the hotel. We normally stay for three weeks but this year decided to stay for four weeks. Why do we return every year? Not because it is luxurious because it isn't!! It is a basic three star hotel. We return because the location is outstanding. A mere minutes walk from one of the best... More

Let me start by saying that we love L'Hoste. This is the 4th year in a row that have come here. The people have always been very pleasant. Its has been a decent hotel, not fancy, but adequate. It is on the beach with breakfast served at La Playa, overlooking the beach and ocean. It doesn't get better then that.... More

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
