Our stay at Les Balcons lived up to all the wonderful reports we had read. We chose a bungalow at the pool level ideal for collecting the French breakfast pastries from the office in the morning and popping down to the Marina for drinks and food. The bungalow had a lovely terrace where we spent most of our time looking... More

Words cannot describe how wonderful a place Les balcons is. You have your own private villa with a view of the harbour/marina, your own private bbq, the dining area is outside but is covered by a roof. Plenty of plants to give you a feeling of seclusion and tropics. They offer breakfast which is ordered from a menu and brought... More

The only reason I didn't give this 5 stars was to keep all those annoying people away who judge places by stars. I won't stay anywhere else when I return. Had never really spent any time in Oyster Pond but this might be the best that remains of the island. If you want a 5 star experience *please* go there!... More

Everything you need is provided in the villas - iron, mini kitchen, towels - the attached terraces have bbqs, dining table, candles, bird feeder - owners truly want you to enjoy this place and it shows. The seeming pool is v small, but even then we did get it to ourselves one evening. Good restaurants within walking distance (avoid cpt... More

We have been spending our vacations on SXM since 2001. We discovered Les BAlcons about 8 years ago! Such a find! Carine & David are wonderful hosts! We are already booked for 3 weeks in October & 3 weeks in April 2016! It really feels like home away from home! The views are so beautiful. The rooms are comfortable &... More

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
