“Superb Service!!!!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 30, 2012

Situated on the top of a verdant hill, the Marquis offers spectacular views of the ocean. Our great view room was capacious, comfortable, and well-appointed. By car, you're but ten minutes in one direction to the world-famous Orient Beach, or ten minutes in the other to Grand Case, the culinary capitol of the Caribbean. A mere two minutes will take you to the nearby Radisson Hotel of Anse Marcel. There, you will find a nice beach and several good restaurants, including Calypso, which I highly recommend.

Best of all, however, is the service. The hotel's warm and professional staff will give you give great advice on the best restaurants, beaches, bars, boat excursions, etc.--all in multiple languages. Continental breakfast of fresh fruits, croissants, etc., was delicious. Throughout our stay,we felt like an old friend, not merely another number on a credit card. That's why it's a place I would eagerly return to again and again!

Merci mille fois, Moira!

Our stay was from December 25-28 and upon arrival were greeted by the hotel manager. She was very friendly and provided a quick tour of the property, the room and the services they provide. They also have a deal/partnership with another hotel that is located further down the hill and closer to the Anse Marcel beach area which allows for free use of beach chairs and a sports center. We were also given a nice welcoming gift with a personalized hand-written welcome note.

The hotel is located on a hill and offers great views of the Anse Marcel bay. Our room had a balcony with a table where we had breakfast a few mornings with the bay and mountains as our backdrop. The breakfast was simple: Croissants with butter and jams, chocolate croissants, baguette, fresh fruit, fresh squeezed orange juice, coffee and tea. Inquire about the price of breakfast beforehand as you may find it to be expensive.

The room itself is very spacious and clean with the typical European style shower/tub with no curtain. The bed was big but a little soft and there were no luggage racks which would have been helpful. There is adequate closet and drawer space and two safes.

The hotel is in an ideal location - just up from Anse Marcel beach, a couple minutes drive to the dock from which you can take boats to Pinel, and a short drive from Grand Case, where there are many dining options. We loved it!

The staff was extremely friendly, helpful and knowledgeable. Every suggestion was spot on (from restaurants and bars to beaches). Upon returning to the hotel from our outings we were always asked how our day/trip went. Beach towels are provided for your trips to the beach and parking is free with plenty of parking spots.

We were very happy to call this hotel our home during our stay in St. Martin. Highly recommended!

Marquis is fabulous. The rooms are spacious, the staff is very hospitable, and the views are spectacular. Nestled up in the mountains above Anse Marcel, the hotel provides great views of the water and Anguilla in the distance. Each room has a private balcony which made me feel more like a local than a tourist. A rental car is needed to stay here if you wish to have the flexibility to see the island. However, parking was never a problem and they can even facilitate a rental car. Also, they do have a pool onsite but it is very small. However, with access to the beach at Anse Marcel, why would you choose to stay at the pool?
Each morning we had a wonderful breakfast of pastries, fresh fruit and choice of coffee or tea. Additionally, they served a variety of jams (coconut, guava, mango) with the meals that can be purchased on site if desired (or find the local grocery outlet).
Marquis is conveniently located by Ilet Pinel (5 minutes), Grand Case (10 minutes), and Orient Beach (15 minutes). They gave us the perfect trip of relaxation and local flavor.

Stayed to 2 nights in November when passing through. Nicely away from the cruise ships and the busy tourist areas. Fantastic massage. They provide transport up down to the beach and restaurants. The bit it is missing its our restaurant overlooking the bay for serving dinner.

We stayed for a week in June and it was a very quiet, secluded, beautiful spot on the island. The staff was incredibly friendly and accommodating. The view was absolutely breathtaking. If you're looking for a place to completely de-stress and to completely get away from the world, this is it.

We spent most of our time eating at the hotel. There aren't a whole lot of options in the area to eat. And the places that are around are overpriced and the food is so-so. The food at Hotel Marquis is good and is cheaper than what you'll find around in that part of the island.

We only traveled to Marigot once and it was enough for us. If you want to get around, the Hotel Marquis can recommend good taxi drivers. Just expect to pay a little bit of money due to the location of the hotel.

We loved it. And we would absolutely go again.

Room Tip: Make sure you have a view!

My husband and I stayed at the Marquis in March and had a lovely time. We booked a package deal on Expedia because I found a great deal for this hotel but also because I had been looking at this hotel separately as well. The hotel has fantastic views of the Anse Marcel Bay (yes, the drive is steep but we didn't mind it albeit we rented a jeep due to the climb).

The rooms were comfortable and roomy. We wanted a slightly better view than the not bad view we had with the original room they assigned us so we asked if they had a room further up available and they did. Moira offered us a discount on the upgrade which was nice and they made sure our new balcony had a lounge chair in addition to the table and chairs. The room had a coffee maker and a small fridge, however, we couldn't figure out how to operate the coffee maker properly (maybe it wasn't working properly or it could have been user error) and the fridge was fully stocked with "mini bar" items you would be charged for using. It would have been nice if it were half empty to stock with your own items...we ended up having to take half their stock out to make room for items we bought at the local market.

The hotel staff were impeccable! Fabio, Electra and Moira (and everyone else we encountered) were truly warm and welcoming and had great ideas about where to eat and what to do. You may not have the pleasure of meeting Fabio or Electra since they are Swiss students studying tourism working at the hotel as an internship but I understand that Moira employs students from their school regularly so I should imagine you will have the opportunity to meet some other wonderfully polite students who are learning and exploring the island with you. In fact, we kept running into Fabio everywhere we went :)

The breakfasts were good but we didn't realize they weren't included in our package so, again, Moira offered us a discount on them when we checked out.

We thought this hotel was a gem of a find for the price and we also liked the clientelle there, feeling like they were mellow and "our kind" of people. We became fast vaca pals with another couple from France even though we had communication issues since we didn't speak the same language :) and we went on a Catamaran cruise with them and another young couple of American students on spring break.

We would highly recommend this hotel for a quiet retreat on the French side. It's a short drive to Grand Case in the evenings for a great meal in their many restaurants or you can walk down to Anse Marcel where there are a few restaurants and a private beach. For beaches, we really loved Pinel Island (recommended by the hotel staff) and Baie Rouge and the beaches on Anguilla (which we visited on our Catamaran trip) were amazing!

Room Tip: Higher rooms have better views. If you can afford it, request a suite. We asked for an upgrade and t...

it's really marvellous to find out a small piece of quite in a busy and crowded island as St Martin-St Maarten is! the beaches are overcrowded except the Anse Marcel, where only two big hotels are on the beach and few nice resort are betterly located on the top of the hill overlooking the beach and the bay. the staff is very kind and it's really nice to spend few days over there. a car is absolutely necessary to move around, to visit few interesting points of the island (the butterfly farm, Pinel Island) and to taste some restaurants in different places. if you are not interested in busy area, casino, unpolite and unkind local people...avoid to go to St.Martin, but for any reason you go there take your time and relax at the Marquis Boutique Hotel!
