Alamanda is a lovely hotel, but not a resort in the sense of size, dining and bars.We have stayed 4 times and we do so for its great location almost adjacent to orient beach and it's proximity to Orient Village. The rooms are great all have a balcony and a mini kitchen with refrigerator, stovetop and microwave. The pool is... More

We were looking for a hotel on the beach in Orient Bay and were a little confused by descriptions and placements on maps. This hotel is around a 20 second walk to the beach, but technically not "on the beach". Rooms are simple and clean. I would have rated this 5 star except the common complaints that the beds need...

Friends of ours had recommended Amanda Resort. We are so glad that we took the recommendation and stayed here. The resort is right across from the beach. You just need to cross a small sandy access road. If you stay at this resort your beach chairs are free at Orient Bay beach. The staff at Alamanda are very helpful and... More

The best thing about this hotel is the location. The beach is just across a small Sandy drive from the hotel. There was some seaweed on the beach, but it wasn't too bad. The chairs provided at Kakao were fine, but they didn't offer us drink service. We had lunch there, and the food was very good. There are also... More

If you are looking for a small hotel with a great location in the middle of Orient Beach Alamanda is a great choice. Cost is reasonable and includes breakfast of fresh fruit, bread and jams. Bacon and eggs can be added for a very reasonable price. Rooms are comfortable with flat screen TV and safe. WiFi in lobby. Pool is... More

My husband and I were excited to return to St. Martin after having come here the last couple years. We've been trying new places to stay each time, and were looking forward to staying in Orient. When we arrived in the evening to check in, the desk clerk was not there, and there were several guests up in arms in... More

My wife and I went to St. Martin in early November as part of our 25th anniversary. We picked Alamanda because it is right on Orient beach. Unfortunatley, there's not much left of the beach after the hurricane (It was more than twice the size when we visited 7 or 8 years ago). I don't know where they are going... More

A great european style hotel. Friendly staff that could not do enough for you. Clean and comfortable. Great location in relation to the beach for daytime and restaurants in the evening. Stayed on the dutch side last time and will never go back. French side is where its at. Walking distance to the clothing optional beach as well.

After we were able to finally find Alamanda our expectations were not only met but exceeded. We were greeted openly by the front desk staff immediately and check in was very simple. They gave us a little map of the immediate area and then helped with our bags to the room. The guy showed us the room and explained everything... More

We just returned from our annual trip to St. Martin where once again we stayed at the Alamanda. As always this hotel is very clean and the staff friendly. Our only suggestion for improvement is the beds. This hotel needs to shift to box springs and mattresses.
