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.

Most reviewers are absolutely correct, the Alamanda is not a 4 star plush featureistic hotel. And yes the rooms are a little dated and tired looking and in need of updates. However, it is still the "best" place to stay on Orient Bay and our home away from home bi-yearly for the last 10 years. For those of us with... More

We arrived just after the hurricane left and found downed power lines and palm trees but the Alamanda Resort lived up to our dreams. A stones throw from one of the best beaches with plenty of beach bars. The Alamanda is right next door to a handful of very good French and Italian restaurants. The staff at the resort was... More

Don't be fooled by the "air brushed" images you see on their website. The hotel does not resemble any of them. It is tired looking. There were no sleigh beds in the rooms we were shown, we booked a two bedroom villa - not on the ground floor as it should have been, up 25 stairs, furnishings were shabby, up... More

We have stayed at the Alamanda several times and it is always a great experience. I do want to provide a special thanks to them on this most recent visit. We rented a condo (Caribbean Rivera #4) just a few steps from the Alamanda this July. Caribbean Rivera #4 is managed by Sprimbarth Cap-Caraibes (master property manager on Orient) and... More

To say the Alamanda is a "resort" is a stretch. To say it is in a "resort area" is more accurate. The Alamanda is located next to a "square" with a number of restaurants, small businesses, a laundry (not a laundromat), and a small grocery store. The grocery store is about the size of a U.S. convenient store and is... More

My wife and I have just returned from our 5th or 6th visit to the Alamanda and have found it to be as good as ever. It deserves 4 and a half stars. It is a very relaxing place for a vacation within a short walk to the beach as well as the local restaurants. It is also a short... More

~Stayed week of May 17, 2014~ Cons: Extremely lackadaisical front desk staff who stayed on the internet and who had total disregard for customers (with the exception of Frank), the wifi was intermittent, there was no clock, there were only 2 outlets in the room, with none in the bathroom, the television was very small, we encountered some bugs, there...

Dear Angela, We truly apologize that you felt at our mercy, we never want a guest to feel like that at Alamanda and we would have been happy to relocate you to another property or a different room since you state there was a smell in your room and all we want is to give our guests an outstanding vacation...

This hotel is really worth a stay. Wonderfull staff, A real French hotel, everything easy going and laid back. Indeed, some things are not 'up to scratch', but when booking this hotel you know that and you accept it. It adds to its charm. The Alamanda Resort is the only hotel at Orient Beach with direct access to Orient beach,... More
