Stayed at the Alamanda Resort in mid-April based on generally favorable reviews and a moderate price tag. Overall I enjoyed the stay as best I could. The Alamanda is not a resort. It’s an attractive two story concrete walled and wood roof beach hotel, a little frayed inside, but with two bedrooms, a tired but working refrigerator, microwave, and hotplate... More

I will openly admit to bias in this review, but the bias itself speaks for this lovely resort. My wife and I have been 4 times in the past 5 years. In between we've taken other trips and even done other island resorts (Jade Mountain, e.g.) but are drawn back to Alamanda. First of all, the beach is absolutely lovely.... More

We spent a week there in late February. Based on our research, we were pleased with the outcome as everything was as expected - no surprises. Only 50 paces from the beach and literally around the corner from numerous restaurants. The continental breakfast included with the room fee was good and for a little extra you could add to the...

Although we got delayed due to weather, it was worth the wait to finally get to St Martin. Our stay at Alamanda was good. The hotel staff was very welcoming and helpful and the location was fantastic given the proximity to the village and various beach bars. The room is pretty simply furnished but large, and the balcony was nice... More

I stayed at this hotel for 2 nights in February when I had business that I had to complete before moving on and meeting up with my family in Anguilla for 10 days. I did a tremendous amount of research prior to booking and thought I was getting the best I could get for the amount of money I wanted... More

My family of 4 spent the 3rd week of Feb at Alamanda and my blood pressure is just now going back to normal! My wife, a grown son and daughter and I requested a 2BR suite ($736/nite) and were assured we would have 3 beds. When we arrived we had 2 beds. Since it was nearly midnite the front desk... More

We only stayed for one night. Arriving at almost 11 at night we had a hard time finding anything to eat - the hotel has nothing. They only serve breakfast in the morning and that´s it. Fortunately, around the hotel there were 2 or 3 restaurants and we were fortunate enough to find one that served us some ham, cheese,... More

You can't beat the location of this hotel. I've stayed several places around St Martin and I enjoyed walking right out of the hotel passed the peaceful clean pool and right onto the beach. They have a great little spot to have breakfast. My only complaints would be the rooms are a little behind the times..I would give the bed... More

Very disappointed in response when mother in law slipped and fractured her wrist in several places! They didn't have time to discuss with my travel agent! I asked two employees to come see the floor and neither would look! Emergency room expenses & emergency flight expenses should have been negotiated! Very sad we were having such a great time! We...

This is a friendly little hotel that's a little worn around the edges, but is clean and functional, and in a great location. Sitting on our balcony looking out over waving palm trees, a beautiful very clean pool and crashing ocean waves across the access road was wonderful. The restaurant courtyard just behind the hotel is great, full of fun... More
