Second visit, the hotel is definitely in my top three in the Caribbean, Staff went over and above on more then when occasion, if you can live with being off beach premises then this is a winner, Wife had specific allergy related needs when it came to bedding and they were more then happy to accomadate, I don't even have...

We celebrated my 50th birthday at one of the most amazing places I've visited in my travel career. Love the kitchenette, balcony and lovely appointed room. The breathtaking views are mezmerizing. The owners are amazing and know how to run a first class hotel. It's walking distance to Grand Case where there's a wide variety of restaurants. I've been in... More

Beautiful hotel, friendly and helpful staff. I enjoyed the hotel immensely, watching the sun rise and set from the balcony or even inside the room was a dream. I highly recommend this hotel, the Grand Case Beach Club is a quick walk and you can enjoy their wonderful restaurants as well as walk thru town with ease. Grand Case is... More

We were originally booked for eight nights at the Grand Case Beach Club but the day before we left, we were informed that due to a 'technical issue', we would be moved to the L'Esplanade for three nights, compliments of GCBC! So this was not our first choice and it's because it's not on the beach. We have been in... More

In March, on our way to Anguilla, we stayed three nights first at L’Esplanade on St. Martin. We rented our car via Justice Car Rental, getting a nice SUV for a fair price, with good service, being picked up at the airport and dropped off at the marina. The car rental was arranged via the hotel. The hotel has a... More

Beautiful room, comfortable beds. The service was great. We honeymooned after our wedding in Barbados. The hotel is set up atop a hill close to Restaurant Row.....very easy to walk to excellent restaurants. The pool is fantastic and the poolside bartender is the best. Make sure to swim up to a barstool and grab yourself a drink.

Our recent stay at L'Esplanade was certainly as memorable as the many before. We had just flow in from Jamaica and found St Martin as tranquil, and as restful as always. We generally try to travel during the shoulder season. We have found the area less hectic, the restaurants more available and the shop keepers more willing. We try to... More

The swaying of the palm trees sound like the breaking of waves. The pointy volcanic mountains in the background. Gorgeous tiles leading you up the stairs to your room. (And our bathroom was spacious and also beautifully tiled). A mysterious grassy foot path down to town surrounded by tropical foliage, including cactuses and tamarind. I love this hotel - we... More

My wife and I stayed at L'Esplanade for the first time during the last week of April (Apr 24th to May 1st in suite 10) and really had an excellent stay. Not only was this a GREAT boutique hotel but it was WAY better than any other place we’ve previously stayed on the island (3 times at the Esmerelda and... More

We stayed from April 27 - May 2 for our anniversary and it's one of the best hotels we've ever stayed in! We were looking for a low key, relaxing vacation and we couldn't have picked a better place. Upon arrival, Harry from Justice rental car picked us up in our car and took us to the hotel to complete... More
