My husband and I spent the first week of our honeymoon in St. Martin, at L'esplanade. This was such a wonderful experience. It is clean, beautifully kept, with a friendly and knowledgable staff. Our favorite was having breakfast delivered each morning and eating croissants and drinking coffee and fresh oj on our terrace, looking out at the beautiful water. Also,... More

Wow! This place is truly special. We took advice from TripAdvisor members and chose this place for our honeymoon-it was wonderful! From check in to check out, the staff here not only took care of every need,question, or reservation we needed but you felt like you were staying with friends whom had known them for years. You have to check... More

My family and my inlaws (9 people) stayed at the hotel from 3/31-4/6/08 to attend my son's graduation from The American University of the Carribean Medical School on April 5. My wife and I have stayed at fine hotels all over the US, Carribean and Europe and it is hard to find a better hotel anywhere. This is a boutique... More

L'Esplanade is a wonderful hotel! The rooms are large and very clean. The beds are comfortable - we slept at least 10 hours a day. Alain, the bartender, makes fantastic drinks and is friendly and knowledgeable. The staff was always helpful. We could have rented a car, but found that taking a taxi was much better for our blood pressure!... More

We stayed on the French side of the island at L'Esplanade Hotel. The hotel could not have been better, excellent service, beautiful rooms, very clean, and an extremely friendly and helpful staff. Despite not being directly on the beach, the hotel was a 2 minute walk from Grand-Case and beach access. The pool was peaceful and rarely crowded and the... More

Although I want to keep L'Esplanade a well kept secret, I feel obligated to write a review because this is how I found this gem in the first place! My husband and I have been here twice in the past year, so needless to say, we love it! The rooms are beautiful, very well decorated in simple, but elegant design,... More

This is a LOVELY small hotel tucked in the hills of Grand Case with panoramic views of the ocean. The hotel feels very private and makes you forget you're staying on the very busy island of St. Maarten/St. Martin. The landscaping is beautiful. L'Esplanade and its staff lived up to all the great reviews we had read. ROOM: We stayed... More

This surpassed our expectations in every way. We spent 6 nights in the oversized loft The unit was beautifully laid out, one large balcony with a lovely tiled table large enough for dining as well as 2 very comfortable chaises and a second smaller one off the bedroom. Bed linens first rate.The kitchen was compact, pretty well equipped but would... More

We enjoyed a great six days in the villa at Hotel L'Esplanade. I agree with all of the great reviews about the hotel and wanted to let you know that the positive comments can be extended to the villa. The villa sits up the hill from the hotel, a couple minute walk. When you open the front door you walk... More

When we arrived at our studio, we were greeted with fresh flowers everywhere, in the shower, on the tables and counters, a basket of goodies, a very large bottle of water and a fresh baguette. I brought a lap top and had trouble connecting, but the attentive staff got me up and running in no time. The room was very... More
