I was surprised how much I liked the Alamanda Resort at Orient Bay. First, if you like the beach, this is the perfect location. Orient Beach is the best beach on St. Martin, and the Alamanda is located pretty much dead center on the beach. The daily continental breakfast of croissants, bread & fruit was a nice touch. The service... More

My boyfriend and I just returned from St. Martin after a 6-day/5-night stay at Alamanda Resort. Being avid travelers across the world we have been fortunate to experience wonderful accommodations in many continents from Australia, Europe, Africa and the Caribbean. Alamanda now ranks among our Top 5 places to stay worldwide. Our photographic memory is no match to the beauty... More

My wife, 15 year-old son and I visited the Alamanda Resort in Orient Bay from February 23rd through March 2nd, and had a wonderful time. The Alamanda is a smaller (42-unit) complex of rooms and suites, right off the beach on the French side of St. Martin. We shared an oceanview duplex, with a bathroom on each level, and a... More

Just returned from a five night stay at the Alamanda. It began with our taxi ride to the hotel. The young driver was very friendly and informative. He commentated a brief history about the island, sites to see, what to expect at the Orient Beach, island cuisines and the wonderful guavaberry coladas. Upon arriving at our hotel, and I do... More

The first sign of trouble was the signs. Or, more accurately, the lack of them. When we pulled out of the rental car place, we were told to take a left, and in about 20 minutes, we'd see signs for the Alamanda on our left. Easy enough. Except that when we got to the Orient Bay area, we saw signs... More

My wife and I just returned from 4 days at the Alamanda after spending 5 at the Cuisinart in Anguilla. While the Cuisinart was of a totally different caliber, the Alamanda was worse than a Motel 6 or Red Roof Inn in the U.S.A. We definitely can't recommend it. Maybe we just had a bad room. We had room 101,... More

In the past year, I stated at the Alamanda (7days), Esmerelda (7 days) and the Esplanade (4 days). All are nice hotels but the Alamanda was my favorite. The Alamanda is clean and the rooms are very spacious. The hotel is only about two years old at this point. The staff are not very engaging, so if you need a... More

My wife and I stayed at the Alamanda January 12-17th. We booked mainly due to the reviews on TripAdvisor. We wanted a small hotel close to the beach and did not care about onsite recreational activities. The Alamanda was the perfect choice. The room was clean, large, comfortable and had a balcony overlooking the pool with a beach view. Great... More

We stayed at the Alamanda Dec. 15-20th, 2004. Despite the fact we booked through Expedia (breakfast not included), we really enjoyed our stay here. The room was very comfortable, clean and spacious; as was the bathroom. We had a large jacuzzi tub and a shower. Not sure what one of the reviewers was talking about regarding the lack of a... More
