We stayed at The Alamanda for our 13th visit Feb., 2015. We greatly appreciate the staff and the manager - Vincent's - attentive customer service. The housekeeping staff is friendly and accommodating; complimentary continental breakfast is good with unlimited coffee; Wi-Fi available in lobby area; access to the beach is footsteps away; you will find several retail shops in the...

Great beach-side location, lots of character, close to restaurants and beach bars! Beds are a bit hard for my liking & internet was spotty but didn't bother my husband or I. Rooms & hotel could use a little TLC which is why I rated it 4 instead of 5 stars but overall worth the money especially if you want some... More

We stayed at the Alamanda for one week in April of 2015. This was our second visit to St Martin. We also stayed at the Alamanda on our previous visit about ten years ago. The hotel was exactly what we expected. We were not disappointed in any way. We would happily stay here if we returned to St Martin. The... More

We just went to St. Martin the week of April 13. Our stay at the Alamanda was perfect! We did not want to rent a car so it was a great location. The restaurant courtyard within the Parc d'Orient is behind the Alamanda. All we had to do was walk a short path & we had 8 restaurants to choose... More

My wife and I stayed here for 5 days in April. Our room was spacious and clean, and the resort was right across the road from Orient Bay Beach. Pros: - Nice rooms - Air Conditioning - Free Wifi (within reach of the office) - Balcony - 1 minute from the beach - Free Beach Chairs at Kakoa for guests... More

Thank you for your review! In regards to the mattresses, we find that many people enjoy the firmness of the beds. Some prefer softer, and we can supply bed covers from Housekeeping upon request if that is not your preference. We look forward to the opportunity to host you again! More

My family of five stayed at Alamanda for a week and we loved it! You cannot get a better location: steps away from beach, restaurants, grocery store, bakery...everything you need is here. The complimentary continental breakfast is amazing: fresh fruit, juice, fresh croissants, bread with butter and jam, everything served by a very nice lady. We also used the pool... More

Husband and I had been staying at the Alamanda since 2004 with our final year back in 2013 since conditions continued to degrade since Manager Vincent's departure. Aside from the hard beds that were, for us, barely tolerable, the furniture was worn, curtains were torn, towels were thin and non-absorbent and kitchen area was sparsely supplied. Our last visit in... More

My wife and youngest daughter stayed here for Spring Break in 2014. We are booked to go back in July of 2015. This place is a gem and is exactly what we were looking for. Here is why: 1. It is basically right on Orient Beach, which is where we wanted to be. We strolled down to the far side... More

Don't stay here if your priority is sleep. As others have stated on Tripadvisor it's noisy and the beds were tough on my back. There are clubs close by with pounding music til late at night. Even with a/c and TV on and doors closed it kept us up. Breakfast is same daily and expensive if you want extras like... More

Greetings! We do not often get noise complaints, as the businesses around are restaurants, sometimes there are DJ's for events. We would have been happy to try to move your room if you were truly unhappy. Our goal is to make our Guests feel welcome and comfortable. The landscaping around is still recovering from hurricane season, we try to let... More

We stayed during off season and had the fortune of enjoying a quiet Orient Bay. The staff at the Alamanda was so nice and helpful! The location was excellent as it is located in the middle of Orient Bay and a 2 min walk from restaurants, bars, pharmacy and markets.
