We stayed here 26 days and it was better than being at home. Luxury beyond belief. Fully equipped kitchen. Completely renovated and the owners paid attention to every detail. The bed is to die for. Amazing bathrooms. The staff was unbelievable. An easy walk to Grand Case and the beach. Easy drive to other beaches, Marigot, and the Dutch side... More

Had the pleasure of staying at this property one night post windstar cruise. Absolute delight! Previous reviewer spoke about how buttoned down this resort is and he is spot on. Everything was perfect. The hotel is up on a hill with breathtaking views of the water. It's an easy walk into Grande Case for dinner. The rooms are tastefully decorated... More

Just returned from a five day stay that was fantastic. My friend and I were needing a short girls getaway to recover from holiday stress, etc. and this hotel fit the bill perfectly. We had both stayed there on previous trips together as well as on trips with our husbands and had enjoyed them all thoroughly and this time was... More

My wife and I just returned from 8 great days at the hotel. You always want to know pros and cons. Pros are many: staff, location, rooms, attentiveness, Alain at the pool is a gem. He can cook up a storm. Ask him to bring in a lobster for the next days lunch and you are in heaven. Cons are... More

Family of four during xmas holidays. Hotel came recommended by friends and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Superbly maintained and friendly staff ready to help you in all matters. Well located 10 minutes walk from village of Grand'Case and its "restaurant row" with best eating in all of West Indies with maybe 10 restaurants offering fine French cuisine. Hotel is... More

We loved L'Esplanade! Location is perfect - you can walk to dinner in Grande Case, but far enough away that you are not in "town". It was great to be able to go out to dinner and not have to drive back to our hotel after having cocktails. We'd rather drive aroudn the island during the day and stay close... More

Stayed with my wife for our anniversary and we could not have found a better place. Every last detail is thought of at this hotel. While we were they had just opened their new spa called Ti Spa. Ti Spa is little and quaint and has a welcoming and relaxing vibe. Tricia and Sandra gave us a wonderful couples massage.... More

Went to lesplanade after horrific experience w/supposed "5 star resort" on different side of island. Thankfully lesplanade had room for us. Terrific boutique hotel in grand case, easily accessible to restaurant row. Spacious, comfortable accommodations. Mattresses unfortunately too hard for my taste. Little cheap that they only provide coffee for coffee maker for one nite. But everything else about this... More

I took my disabled Mom there, along with her sister. From getting a floor plan of the hotel to find the most convenient room, to reserving the rental, to pick up from the airport, to restaurant/food delivery calls - they made it EASY. Every convenience was taken into account during our stay: from a personalized Christmas present (!!!!!!) to informative... More

This was our third time at this hotel and they just keep raising the bar. Our deluxe loft, which we were in our last stay was fully renovated, sleek, modern and clean. I travel all the time for business and sleep in hotels close to 150 nights per year...I can tell you that this is one of the most buttoned... More
