I went with a gal pal for 4 nights the last week in January. Le Grand Bleu is a wonderful place to stay in St. Martin. Gerard, the manager, goes out of his way to make you feel welcome. All of the staff are friendly and make you feel at home. The beds are comfortable, the location is close to lots of good restaurants, and you can't beat the beach behind the hotel: it's the loveliest one on the island with plenty of beach bars where you can hang out and enjoy the Caribbean sun and the turquoise water. The only reason I didn't give this a 5 star rating is that it's not The Four Seasons. However, you really don't go to the St. Martin to hide away in a luxury hotel. You want something more rustic where you feel comfortable walking up to your room with a bit of sand still clinging to your shoes and everybody you meet says Bon Jour. That's the way it is at Le Grand Bleu!
