First the Pros - great location near the beach, free breakfast was very good, pool is one of the cleanest I've seen, staff helpful. The Cons list is much longer: bed hard as a ROCK; pillows flat as a pancake; latches on the doors hard to operate; no jacuzzi, pool is teeny tiny; TV in the room incredibly small; no... More

We are sorry to hear you experienced multiple frustrations while staying with us! We do tend to have firmer beds to accommodate guests who prefer them, and are able to supply items to make it softer at the Front Desk (easier to make it softer than to make it harder - we strive to accommodate everyone's preferences.)

Alamanda is a warm, friendly, slightly worn magical corner of Paradise. On Orient Beach minutes from the ocean it is a wonderful place to forget the rest of the world. The included continental breakfast of croissants French bread and jam is looked forward to each morning. The resort feels secluded yet is within easy walking of many fine restaurants with... More

The Alamanda is located toward one end of Orient Bay, which gives it a low-key vibe. Though some of the public areas of the hotel could use some new paint, and the furnishings aren't exactly modern, our room was in good shape and very comfortable. The reception staff were all extremely friendly, welcoming, and happy to help with any inquiries... More

Thank you for your review! We indeed prefer to channel the vibe of the islands rather than a super contemporary vibe - we want to help you truly relax and feel the spirit of the island. Thank you for your compliments to our staff, we will pass that on! We hope to see you again! More

With only 6 days to play with we searched for packages with different airlines with nonstop flights from jfk then boiled it down to beach locations. We knew we'd like the food on the French side of St Marten so then it was a matter of looking at the map. We love quirky old hotels and we were happy with... More

The Alamanda Resort is St. Martin's newest oceanfront hotel on Orient Beach and is the ideal "clothing optional" beach for lazing in the sun and for water sports lovers. We liked the pristine swimming pool which we seemed to have all to ourselves..go figure. Our room was equipped with air-conditioning, ceiling fan, satelite TV, iron and ironing board, hair dryer,...

Well maintained facility. Location is the best of the ones we have stayed at as you can go through the back gate and you are on the road by the beach. Going out the side it backed up to the village restaurants. Staff is friendly and helpful. Free continental breakfast, nice balconies, well appointed and clean rooms.

Alamanda Resort is situated a stone's throw from the middle of Orient Beach and adjacent to The Village, a group of nice restaurants. While you really can't see the beach from most rooms, you can hear it, which is nice. Fortunately, when you're on Orient, you don't spend much time in your room.The hotel itself is well-worn.
