When my wife and I visited this resort hotel we were very impressed with the friendly nature of the hotel staff, they were very caring and helpful in everything we needed. The local square offered several types of restaurant to eat at, which we found very delightful. Also the local beach is fantastic, Orient beach, as they say, is one... More

We stayed 4 nights in a second floor room. The location could not be better. It is almost on Orient Beach and it is in Orient village. The hotel itself is older, although clean, the included breakfast was very good. The pool area is very nice and usually quiet. WiFi was frustrating. The rates we very reasonable. We rented a...

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. Our bed was... More

Thank you for your review. We do offer additional padding through housekeeping to soften your bed if that is your preference. We are remodeling elements of our Guestrooms in the near future. We are happy you appreciate the location of our hotel and its proximity to the beach and restaurants. More

Charming courtyard setting with friendly staff. Only ate breakfast (twice). Very good selection and enjoyable setting. We will be back. Took friends the second time and they too enjoyed the experience.

A good choice for a large family. We had a family suite for 5. Kids had their own room upstairs. Oversized king bed downstairs with balcony. For the price it was a solid stay. The breakfast & coffee each morning was a money saver. Plenty of places to eat within steps of the hotel. Very centrally located. Do bring a... More

We just returned from St Martin and we are happy that we stayed at Alamanda Resort. We did not rent a car, and never felt we needed one. Several great restaurants and beautiful beaches steps away. The breakfast was fine for me, but hubby needed eggs and bacon, which was available for an extra fee. I read on trip advisor... More

Thank you for your review! We are indeed a more local establishment, and the relaxed, authentic vibe just comes naturally to us. We have many guests who need a more substantial breakfast, are can be accommodated by our enhanced menu or by visiting one of the beach restaurants. It was a pleasure having you, and we hope to see you... More

My wife and I stayed there for 4 nights. The staff was very kind and helpful. Rooms very spacious and clean. It's just a few steps away from the beach. From my perspective the only thing needs improvement is their breakfast.

We are glad you enjoyed our resort, right on the beach! While our breakfast is included, if you're looking for something different to switch it up, many of the beach restaurants have excellent breakfasts, including American and French specialities. Either way, we hope to see you soon! More

Although we are staying in a private residence near the Alamanda this trip we couldn't help but visit our friends at the Alamanda. It was wonderful having such a warm welcome even though we were not staying there. We did however have breakfast there almost every day of our 10 day visit to the island.

Stayed for 7 nights. Awesome property. Great location. Beautiful beach. Need a car but located close to anything you could ask for. Will be returning in 2016 but for 10 nights next time. Free breakfast (bread and fruit) but a upcharge for eggs and bacon.

We are glad you enjoyed our hotel and the beautiful Orient Bay! Agreed, if you are staying for 10 days in paradise, you will likely want to rent a car so you can see the rest of the wonderful things our island has to offer. Our taxis are reliable, but if you plan on leaving Orient Bay multiples times per... More

Hotel Alamanda was our home base for 4 days of luxurious lounging on the BEAUTIFUL beaches of Orient bay. I was a little nervous to book this hotel because of some reviews that said it was far from the water... Not so.

"Luxurious lounging" - sounds like you all did it right! Having everything at your fingertips truly makes for a relaxing, stress-free vacation (as long as you can figure out what tropical beverage to have!). Thank you for your review, and we hope to see you next time! More
