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.

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
