We were only three days on St Martin but we loved our time here. Our little apartment was comfortable, the views from the balcony were stunning and the lovely little pastries for breakfast every morning were gold. Carinne, the patroness, couldn't be more helpful. Highly recommended

We are on our 6 year going here, and its so relaxing. We love sitting on the deck and having breakfast every morning. Carrine and David are most friendly, and if there ever is a problem they take of it right away. You are in walking distance to restaurants but we recommend Quai Quest, perfect little place with great food.... More

We just completed a 4 week stay with Les Balcon. It was our 1st time there but we were treated as "old timers". We loved the French Side and its location to important ares on the island. The managers, Carine and David could not have been more accommodating. Our room was always clean and was very comfortable. The pool was... More

We have stayed twice at Les Balcon beautiful Sweety Cottage and we are booked for another stay this coming May. This is a beautiful, private, romantic cottage for two overlooking Oyster Pond. Carine and David are the consummate hosts - always available to answer questions or to surprise us with limes or bananas or something wonderful from their property. The... More

We stayed here between Feb 19-26 in number 7. It was our first experience and will not be our last. We enjoyed our stay here very much. It was private and comfortable with everything you need. I appreciated the security system and the safe area to park our rental car. I can't say enough about Carine who was so helpful... More

We just returned from St Martin and stayed 15 days at their Sweety Cottage. This is a fabulous place for privacy and easy to get anywhere on the island. They have a secure place to park your car. Carine and David are generous and thoughtful host, they lived right behind us and were always available to help or answer questions.... More

I think Les Balcons is a really great deal, and a nice place to stay on St. Martin. It's views are just the best! Plus, the room's balcony can't be beat. The staff are very helpful and friendly. There were a few things that kept it from being a "five." We had to deal with a few more bugs than... More

We recently stayed at Les Balcons and found it delightful. Our car rental was arranged by the hotel and we were met on our arrival. The hotel has a wonderful view of Oyster Pond and the Marina. Our bungalow was well appointed and the birds entertained us all week on our feeder on the balcony. We are going back next... More

We just returned from a 5 day stay at Les Balons. We went there after a 10 day charter with Sunsail, also in Oyster Pond, so was a very short ($3/person, 3 minute) cab ride. We subsequently did walk the whole area, and Carine showed us a shortcut back to the docks, so we could make happy hour at the... More
