This was our first time staying at Hotel L'Esplanade in St. Martin and we can't wait to go back. Beautiful setting, unbeatable location, wonderful staff everywhere and nicely decorated, immaculate rooms. We had a 1 bedroom suite that was very spacious, extremely comfortable and had a gorgeous view of Grand Case from a fabulous large balcony. The housekeeping staff was... More

A week's stay in mid-March was delightful. I really felt at home here; the view from the balcony, the nice kitchen and the one and a half baths (including the fabulous upstairs bathroom with huge shower) were indeed superb. As others have said, the staff is top-notch -- pleasant and able to help with any and all guest requests --... More

Dear Richard & Ann Rea, Thank you for you positive review and kind words. It was a pleasure having you here with us once again. We are so terribly sorry that you weren't pleased with the room that we selected for you; we were under the impression that you "didn't want to be on the end", meaning room #15 which... More

I pray that there is never a trip to St Maarten/St Martin in which I for some reason cannot book my room at L'Esplanade. It would definitely take a big part out the quality of my stay on the island. Thanks again to Kristin and Marc and all of your staff who are always so helpful and friendly to us.... More

This is a top notch boutique hotel that sits just hillside above Grand Case. The location is very quiet and the views are great to both the ocean and downtown. It was our first time in St. Martin and we had several questions around car rental, areas to visit, and restaurants. The hotel staff was very helpful with everything. If... More

We recently spent a week at L'Esplanade. Before picking this place to stay we read many of the reviews on TA. That being said we knew pretty much what to expect before arriving. We were very happy with our choice of where to stay. The most important thing to remember here is that this is truly a " boutique" hotel,... More

From start to finish, our stay at L'Esplanade was incredible. It is just the sort of charming and peaceful oasis one dreams about finding on St Maarten! I stayed at the hotel with my film crew this past March 2014 during the Heineken Regatta. Upon arrival, the suite was impeccably clean with beautiful caribbean music playing in the background. Fresh... More

We have been staying at this hotel whenever we come to St Martin---absolutely love it---the rooms are beautiful; it is centrally located (walk to Grand Case and all its' wonderful restaurants; quick drive to Orient Beach & Supermarche). Could not imagine staying anywhere else!
