Orient Bay or Grand Case

We are considering a vacation in December/January to ST. Martin and would like some hotel recommendations. We like luxury and great food. We love the beach and would like a very clean, relatively no bugs( we know it is the Caribbean). We would like two rooms, for two couples. We are not interested in the nude beaches. We would like to be near all the action and the water.

thank you.

Most of the action is over on the Dutch side, if you're referring to nighttime activities. You would find any 5 star resorts save La Samanna (very expensive), L'Esplanade may fill the bill - here is the link....


Orient Bay is home of the clothing optional resort and beach

Nice small hotels but not the "luxury" of the bigger places.

A condo or villa might be the answer here.

You can find some very nice places at www.vrbo.com, as well. The luxury ones listed in Grand Case are quite nice.

Have stayed in both Grand Case and Orient Bay. Last stayed at Grand Case Beach Club. Gated hotel with a very nice seaside restaurant, bar and nice rooms. It was about a 10-15 minute walk to restaurant row in Grand Case, 10-15 min drive to Orient Bay and about 15-30 min drive to Marigot. Hotel is somewhat secluded so beach seems private. It is on backside of island so no waves. Closest nightlife is Colmos Cafe in Grand Case which is a lively beach bar/restaurant. The beach at Orient Bay is wider and has waves. Much more to do (and see--lol) on that beach. The further south the more revealing. Topless bathing and customary (for Americans) beach wear prevalent throughout. See reviews for more info on hotels at both beaches.
