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. The American breakfast includes a... More

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.

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. We had a glorious view from our private balcony , over the pool, through lazy palm fronds to... More

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 are glad you enjoyed your stay! There is something very special about staying at a hotel directly on the beach, especially when it's surrounded by a beach bar and various restaurants and stores. Thank you for your review! 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
