WE are extremely well travelled, mainly 5-6 star on business and holiday. We stayed here last Feb with our adult daughters in a 2 bdrm suite. It was disappointingly right by the road and driveway, and the cocktail lounge/pool area. We had no privacy and listened to cars thump over the speedbumps all night.The maids would chatter endlessly outside our window at 7am. Other than that, they have fixed up the rooms a bit since our stay in Feb 2007 and it was very clean. We love the ambience of this place. A glass of champagne by the pool before headign off to dinner is wonderful. Would definitely recommend only taking an upper level suite - we loved that our 1st time. Huge patio to have a glass of wine and listen to the ocean up there. The walk to the beach is no bother, we enjoyed the exercise. Orient Beach is THE most incredible and we LOVE Coco's for lunch and beach loungers - great service, amazing food. You can't go wrong in any of the village restarurants and must tri Ti Bouchon a short cab ride away. Momo will spoil you. Grand Case food is amazing too. Book a table ahead in winter on the patio at Auberge on Tues night to watch the parade while dining. We've been to St Martin 4 times and love it most of all Caribbean and Mexico. Couldn't get a flight or hotel after Christmas this year, so we'll be in Mayan, our 2nd choice. But St Martin beats Barbados, Nevis, Antigua, Caymans, etc. If you can afford it, Le Petit Hotel in Grand Case is amazing! But La Plantation is cozy and has everything you need. But yes, the beds are hard, brign a soft pillow.
