“nice staff, good location, poor value”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed June 3, 2012

Hotel Beach Plaza is at a nice location but I believe the stay will be A LOT more pleasant for its guests after a full renovation. Thank goodness we brought our camping flash lights due to the many yet unforeseen power outages which ocurred during our stay. With lights out, so was the AC and the telephone. There were also problems with the room safe not working. The breakfast was wonderful, however too many ants around. Also watch out for the birds, if you leave to go out for seconds on your meal, you may return to find yourself in company with a hungry flock. Since the hotel is somewhat open the birds fly in and out at will looking for food.

Room Tip: The bartender Marie is a gem. Be sure to catch a drink at her bar and she will inform you of all the...

but try to get a room on the beach side as the traffic can be noisy at times on the roadside.
Pool is also in the shade for half the day...but great for car rental and walking to Marigot and Ferry. This is a 3 Star property... NOT 4 star....

Room Tip: also the rooms have fridges and microwaves...very handy..

Hotel Beach Plaza is situated next to Marigot. It's not even a 5 minute drive to town. It's right at the beach which makes it perfect for a relaxing short trip. The hotel itself is good. Bathroom was just redone and had a nice bath. Bed was good.
It's what you expect for this price. Good, comfortable and friendly staff.

check in was fast. staff at desk are freindly. wifi is terrible had to stand in hall to get signal and then it would drop constantly too.beach is okay kind of rocky. close to grocery store to walk for staples. breakfast buffet is basic but quick. rooms are spacious get very few english channels. walk to marigot for shopping market can be busy on cruise days. no night entertain for a night life need to go to dutch side.

Room Tip: pick room on ocean side other is on a main busy road

We stayed for one week at this Hotel. Yes it does need some work, paint, upgrading, but overall very clean and the service was excellent. Check-in was quick and anytime we needed anything at the front desk, e.g. towels, directions, advice, staff was very friendly and helpful. The hotel restaurant is quite expensive, but there are several restaurants within walking distance to choose from. There is also a US Grocery Store right next store. Better to purchase an Oceanview room. There is lots of construction at Islandview. Noisy and lots of traffic. Oceanview you can see to Anguilla. It is quiet with beautiful sunsets. Beach is tiny but we had lovely swims and never had a problem getting a chair or umbrella. Breakfast was outstanding! Bacon & eggs, pancakes, breads, fruit, yogurt, hard-boiled eggs, meats and cheese. Lots to choose from. Breakfast was served between 7 a.m. and 11 a.m. We took the ferry to Anguilla which has awesome beaches. It's only a 15 minute ride for $40. Worth it. Also took the ferry to St. Barth's. This is 1 1/2 hr. ride but it was a great day. Book in advance and you will get it for $50 euro. We much prefer the French side of St. Martin. It is quieter, restaurants are awesome and it is very European. Also very safe. Visit the Marina for the fine French restaurants there. Hotel had a nice pool which was kept immaculate and a nice sundeck. There was a pool bar and a piano bar. There was supposed to be a piano player three nights but we only saw him one night. Would definitely go back!

Room Tip: Pay the extra to get an Oceanview room. Beautiful view of the Bay and you can see to Anguilla.

We booked via priceline and were pleasantly surprised that the hotel provided us with early check-in and a roll-away bed at no extra cost. The room was very clean but did look worn. Unfortunately, we had almost no hot water in the shower. The toilet was prone to running continuously or not flushing at all. We stopped using the bathroom lock after I almost couldn't get out of the bathroom because the lock stuck. As for the view, the island view is a view of the parking lot. The wifi at the hotel was infuriating. It worked for a minute or two and then kicked you off.

The pluses of the hotel were its location on the water with an easy walk to Marigot, the included breakfast, the generally friendly service and a bar that mixed good mojitos. I wouldn't rule out staying again but it wouldn't be my first choice.

Room Tip: The island view is a parking lot view.

This is a shabby and worn-out hotel that is nowhere near average, let alone classy by any standard - European, American or Caribbean. The appearnce is very disappointing. The only upside is that guests can walk to Marina Royal in Marigot for dinner, and the free breakfast is good. When I stayed there for a couple of days, I had to pay taxis or take the ferry during the day just to have a decent place to hang out in. When you factor that cost in, I may as well have stayed somewhere else. If the hotel would stop advertising itself as 4-star and advertise itself clsoer to what it really is, then the hotel would at least meet customer expectations.
