Cannot say enough good things about this quaint boutique hotel in Orient Bay! If you want a quiet get-away in a laid back setting this is the hotel for you. We just spent 9 days at this smallish hotel enjoying the Morroccan ambience and little resident dog "Poopy" , French for puppy, who liked to escort us down to the beach. Lots of dogs and cats roam freely in this area so if you don't like animals don't come to this part of St. Martin!
The hotel is a convenient five minute walk to Orient Beach and town restaurants for lunch and dinner. Grand Case is a ten minute drive if one wants more variety to dine out. The snorkelling and swimming is great along the pristine Orient Beach. Loterie Farm makes an interesting destination for those who like to hike and zip glide. The view from the mountain top is absolutely stunning.
The traffic jams and the agressive hawkers in Phillipsburg are the only negatives to St. Martin. Too many cars but what can you do?
