L'Hotel L'Esplanade is the perfect place for couples that want to get away from it all and enjoy some peace and tranquility. It is by far the quietest most private hotel I have ever stayed in. The room as you can see from the photos was beauiful. Some details like fresh bread and cookies on arrival, beautiful french soaps in... More

i Can't say enough about L' Esplanade. The staff is Wonderful, the room was beautiful, and as you can see from our photos, the view was spectacular. Grand Case is the place for you if you don't like crowds. The restaraunts are fabulous, and you feel safe even walking around at night. If you are traveling to St. Martin, you... More

Do not hesitate to stay here. The hotel is immaculate. The staff was WONDERFUL to a person, everyone was courteous and nice every time. Needed an adapter for the higher voltage plug--no problem, they handed me a high quality one to use for free. Free wireless in rooms. A little confusing--went out for a day--but they just let me use... More

Hotel L'Esplanade is above and beyond what we were expecting. The room (15) was remarkable with two decks (I miss the breeze) a loft for our comfy and clean bedroom, a great shower , and a full kitchen for a snacks, many many bottles of water, and Carib! The hotel staff were all very warm and knowledgable about how their... More

My husband and I chose L'Esplanade after extensive research. I am very picky about where we vacation seeing as we are spending a lot of money. I want it to be well worth it. I dare to say that this was even better than our honeymoonn where we stayed at a very upscale hotel in Cabo, Mexico. Please, do believe... More

My wife and I just returned from St. Martin, our third trip to the island. Each visit we have stayed at Hotel L'Esplanade and each time we have been thoroughly impressed with the level of service and the level of accommodation, particularly considering the price. We stayed in a 1 BR loft and the view of Grand Case was spectacular.... More

We went to St Martin for a long weekend getaway (5 days, 4 nights) and had a fabulous time. L'Esplanade was a beautiful boutique style hotel, which if you like that type of property, will suit you very well. We loved the simple yet clean decor, particularly the high ceiling/loft we were in complete with lots of hardwood and modern... More

Hotel L'Esplanade is a very nice property. The room was kept clean, but there was bird excrement on the railing of the deck that I had to clean myself, as the maid didn't do it. As far as the only way to see Saint Martin/ Sint Maarten is by car, the only problem is the only place you can park... More

My wife and I stayed here from April 30-May 5. We absolutely loved L'Esplanade and really want to go back for our 5-year anniversary. My wife was trying to scheme out a way that we could stay in St. Martin for a few months as we were leaving. I researched this trip like crazy on trip advisor before choosing this... More
