We stayed at La Semanna for a short trip in February. The resort is a relatively quick ride from the airport which is convenient. We were checked in promptly, and escorted to our room. The room was located in the main building which was favorable for the majority of things we did, however, a drawback is that they do not... More

This past weekend I traveled to St Maarten with my family to celebrate my mom's 60th birthday. We had originally chosen another hotel-resort that shall go unnamed as it was a HUGE MISTAKE. Upon our arrival we quickly knew it wasn't for us and so we hurried to make other arrangements. I remembered hearing about La Samanna from a friend... More

La Samanna was fantastic from the moment we set foot on the property greeting us with the sparkling water & delicious West Indies Rum Punch! The concierge and staff were fantastic, catering to our every need with such wonderful dispositions. The beach, water and ambience were spectacular. Loved also the wine cave, the restaurants, the flowers. Private snorkeling trip was... More

Touted as a superb resort, this one was not worth our money. Typical mediocre Caribbean customer service. Overpriced food, lack of luxury and upscale attention to detail. Non existent pool attendants, burger joint bar food available during the day, room with no closets, breakfast buffet without egg station, unhappy staff with no understanding of high end service always with faces...

We went during Easter Break: The property was beautiful! The beach chairs need to be upgraded but the service was excellent from the front desk, concierge and on the beach. Water sports were a lot of fun! Some guests were a bit stuck up (French and German) but we sang the Star Spangled Banner and they got the message.The only... More

Stayed in a villa by the pool while most of my family stayed in one of the 4 bedroom villas on the hill. This was a luxurious, isolated get away. Fantastic white sand beach. The food is okay; nothing fantastic but it's pretty good. The service was impeccable. I'll fill in details later or ask me a question.

I wanted an exclusive, upscale, private hotel on the beach that would provide plenty of water sports with an incredible beach and be (for the most part) kid-free. I got that at Belmond La Samanna. Had a wonderful room in the arrival building with spectacular views of the beach. Breathtaking! I've been to countless islands in the Caribbean over the... More

Even when intentions are good, the lack of training from management is obvious. Will not get into the particulars because there were many and each time they tried to remedy it, but the point is there shouldn't be so many little problems. The beach is where my husband and I spent the whole day and it is so beautiful that... More

I love my week at La Samanna. The location and staff are wonderful, the beach is amazing. I love my Pilates sessions as well! Perfect option for a nice retreat week! I will definitely get back. this is definitely the hotel to stay if you go to the Island.

St Martin-Dutch or French Side- is like most Caribbean islands with its quaint rusted out cars abandoned on sides of the roads that are made up not of solid pavement but a collection of pot holes. With its constant open construction, clear lack of zoning and locals languishing on sidewalks you really know when you've arrived. It is what it... More
