“A treasure at the top of a mountain with a spectacular view”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 3, 2013

My wife and I booked this hotel for our 1 yr anniversary and it was definitely a great stay. The staff was absolutely superb and they could not be more helpful. The view is one of the best on the island but it is at the expense of the location. A car is absolutely vital when staying at this hotel. Grand Case is where most of the top 10 restaurants are on the island (as per trip advisor) and the best part is that you are only a 10 min drive away. Orient Bay is one of the nicest beaches we visited and that's also a 10 min drive. The floors could have been cleaned better on a daily basis. The bedroom was large though and the bathroom was very nice and clean. The safe did not work in the closet so we just closed the shutters when we left for the day. We will definitely return to this hotel next time we visit the island as it provided the perfect getaway and privacy we wanted.

The Marquis Hotel is definitely where you want to stay in St. Martin to relax and completely disconnect from the outside world. The hotel is located on top of a hill with an amazing view of Anse Marcel bay. When you arrive it feels like your own vacation home and not a hotel. The staff couldn't be any more accommodating and professional. Our room was very clean and comfortable. It had a tropical flare but updated with modern amenities. I would definitely stay there again on my next vacation to St. Martin.

Sitting on Cap Juluca, a hotel resort in Anguilla, we are looking over the straight to St Martin and Anse Marcel where Marquis is located. We stayed there for four nights and have only good things to say about this establishment: Though not by the beach the location is owesome, tucked away on a steep hillside facing the beautiful Anse Marcel beach and the ocean. Only a few mintues drive to the beach and about ten minutes to the great restaurant and cute butiques of Grand Case. Murquis has spacious with great viewes. Is feels very private and romantic with a very welcoming and friendly staff, as mentioned in many of the previous reviewes. Much more personal as may be expected in similar and larger hotels. We were especially pleased with the dinner and sightsseeing recommendations and help with reservations at various local restaurants in Grand Case. Rental car is a must at Marquis (braise yourselves for the steep hills). Delicious continental breakfast served by a nice lady on the terrace by the pool. Bring insect repellant, if you want to avoid the miquitoes.

Room Tip: We stayed at a "great view" room and would reccomend this. Nothing like waking up to the b...

The hotel is so beautiful, very very clean - in a very nice location up in the hill- with an amazing view to Anse Marcel. Very close to Grand case to have dinner at night (5 min car drive). The best part of this hotel is the attention provided by the employees, really really makes the difference, they are very helpful, always ready to provide the best recommendations - they are super NICE- I really cannot recall a similar experience at any other hotel - they make you feel part of their family. Do not miss the breakfast which is also outstanding quality! This hotel is perfect for an amazing stay at St Marteen.

Je t'aime The Marquis Boutique Hotel & Spa!

I have been home for 11 long cold and lonely days.....and oh how I miss the Marquis. The hotel is a tiny gem set up high in the mountains...high enough to have a super view of the cove below, high enough to feel that you are away from the world, but only a ten minute ride from exquisite beaches like Pinel or Orient.

The view is magnificent! The pool is soooo restful; with only 17 rooms, you feel like you have the place to yourself. The staff is beyond comparison too. Upon arrival, you will receive big smiles and a kiss on each cheek (the french way)! Moira, the sales manager makes you feel welcome, as if she is welcoming you into her home. Sybille and Francesca will make your stay amazing. They will shuttle you to the local beaches, making sure you do not forget to take a towel with you. If you are hungry, they will bring you room service from the most amazing pizza place sown at the bottom of the hill too. If you forget to eat, Sybille may even call you to remind you to eat, and that she is going to the restaurant!

And of course, lets not forget Madame Zazou who serves gorgeous fruit and warm pain au chocolate in the mornings, along with a strong cup of coffee and freshly squeezed orange juice!

If you are looking to be kissed by the sun and a warm friendly hotel with people that care, visit the Marquis...you will be THRILLED!!!!!

We just spent four days at Marquis to celebrate our 10th Anniversary. It was a pleasure to spend time there. The room (Mustique) was perfect for us. Moira and the team are absolutely wonderful and take care of every need. We enjoyed the experience and would definitely go back. I was concerned about the road based on reviews I had read, but it is not a problem at all. I can't imagine staying any other place on the island. The team was extremely helpful with restaurant reservations and made great recommendations. Great four days!

For context, my wife and I are retired and travel a lot. Often in the winter we want to get away from the cold monotony and just bask in the sun. We've been to several Caribbean destinations. but this was first to Saint Martin. This was a seven night trip. We did not rent a car. We really didn't have much interest in exploring the island and tend to prefer boutique hotels for intimacy and service. We booked a Great View room that includes a balcony. The Marquis was great for our objectives.The good things: The Marquis arranged a driver who met us at the airport (E45). We were warmly greeted and always well served. Everything was relaxing. The room was spacious with high timbered ceilings and the furnishings were adequate. The view was spectacular though we stayed in room 118, which was at the end of the line of rooms with the great view (ask for a room closer to the beach/north). Breakfast was on the central patio by the small pool (nice setting but no view), continental style, and reasonable for these parts (E10). Service was very personal, amiable, and prompt. Marquis provides beach towels and drive you down to the Anse Marcel beach (2 min) and pick you up immediately when you call (ask any server to call) - very quick service. The beach was not crowded, lots of comfortable, padded chaises with functional umbrellas (free) and beach bars and beach boy service - expensive as you would expect; direct bill to your room if you want. They will also drop you at the pier to go to Pinel Island - we did that once but preferred Anse Marcel. We ate most of our meals in the Anse Marcel locations - Le Calypso, La LoConda (transportation provided by the Marquis) - good enough because we snacked so much on the beach (everything from deserts to grilled lobster). One night we took a taxi to Grand Case (E20 each way) to eat at L'Auberge Gourmande - outstanding. We took room service twice on our balcony (room service is catered from a nearby restuarant and takes time but the food is good). The bad: Room furnishings were not to the standard of the rooms themselves - very basic, not much decoration, not luxurious. This place deserves better: with better furnishings and decor we would rate the Marquis at 5. Isolated: if you want to move around the island, rent a car. Pool was nice, clean but small, but who wants a pool when you have chauffer service to the beach? We didn't use the spa service.

Room Tip: For deluxe views, ask for a room closer to the north end (?) - in any case closest to the Anse Marce...
