Do not book here! At ALL! I am an avid trip advisor reviewer and this is the worst booking I have ever made. Expedia should not even do business with a hotel that has no front desk and the guy Pablo is full of trickery. Expedia will lie to you and tell you that they tried to contact this guy... More

My husband and I spent our honeymoon in St. Martin and found Idolem via Living Social. Cathy was wonderful from the time of reservation, even helping us get a car rental. Our apartment was clean, comfortable, and more room and amenities than we expected. It was the perfect place to venture out from each day and relax in the evening.... More

So long as you are okay with forgoing the service and amenities for a full-service hotel, the apartments at Idolem cannot be beat! We were a group of five who stayed here for four nights using a Living Social voucher at the end of March and had a wonderful visit. Upon arrival, we were greeted by Cathy, the amiable on-site...

I purchased a Living Social voucher for Idolem and utilized it during August 2012. The experience was quite enjoyable. The property is well maintained, clean, and quiet. During the first 5 days that we were there, we only saw one other group of guests on the property. Our unit included two bedrooms, 1 bathroom, a living room, kitchen and balcony.... More

We spent six nights with friends and family at the Idolem Resort. The villas were lovely and very clean. It is a great place for a quiet, relaxing vacation. It is close to nice restaurants, grocery stores, and Orient Beach is just down the road. I would definitely suggest that you rent a car, because it is in a somewhat... More

I spent six nights at Idolem Resort with friends and family June 11-16. The condos are nice and clean. It is a great place for a quiet vacation. The bedrooms are air conditioned, but the rest of the condo is not. But, who really spends time inside when you are on a beautiful island, right? Karen, the property owner is... More

My girlfriend and I really enjoyed the location and nature of this place. If you are looking for a super fancy hotel with lots of amenities, this isn't the place for you. However, if you are looking for a quiet relaxing condo to enjoy your time in St. Martin, I highly recommend this place. This place is far removed from... More

Spent a week at Idolem with friends and family for the wedding of my sister. We loved the area and the location to various spots on the island. Took a bit to navigate the roads, as road signs are at a minimum on the French side of the island. Had to rely on the Sol e Luna resturant sign on... More

If you want to feel like you are at your second home, then stay here! Idolem Resort is located on the French Side of St. Martin in Cul De sac. Minutes away from Pinel, the famous Grand Case restaurants and Orient Beach. The villas are VERY spacious with breath taking views of the ocean. I would recommend this hotel. However,... More
