“Peaceful and GREAT staff”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 14, 2013

We have been going to this hotel for five years! We love the location, which is on the French Side!

Just a few steps to the French grocery for bread and cheese!

When you contact the hotel for a reservation you can also reserve a car. The car company will pick you up at the airport and drive you to the hotel..then you are on your own!

Room Tip: Ask for a room with a view of the lagoon!

We luckily just stayed for 2 nights so it didn't matter that much that room cleaning was only to be had at extra charge (having paid more than 100 euros per night i found that quite scandalous anyway). As well it didn't matter that the furniture was old and the appliances a bit run down. However to find a broken shower head (and broken to a point where it is impossible that the previous guest didn't complain about it) when you come from your flight is quite a downer.. In the morning we found our tooth brushes infested with ants... And the next day the toilet flush wouldn't work anymore... And upon departure you have to strip yourself the bed linen off, empty the trash and clean up generally. They will come up to control if you'd done it properly otherwise a fee applies!
Needless to say that the air conditioning would only make a lot of noise but no cooling.
When we stated all these facts to the lady in her stuffy office that served as reception we wouldn't even hear a sorry just a 'well you really had no luck...'.
Luckily the beautiful island and the nice people everywhere (except at the Flamboyant that is) still made the trip a very nice experience.
Just stay away from that place and you will be good.

While this hotel is run-down and could use a bit of cleaning and fixing, what really turned us off what the completely unwelcoming un-staffed front desk...with a pathetic little sign guiding you to a side office. This was our first glance into what was ahead. Check-in included the bare minimum information about the facility, but clear warning about charging 50 Euros for not washing your dishes and cleaning the kitchen. Even though website states there are all sorts of water sports available, when we asked about them we were sent to a little shack where the staff pointed to the Lagoon and did not offer anything else.

We would not recommend this hotel!

As a repeat visitor to This hotel i cannot say enough good things about the friendly and efficient staff. although the hotel has been changing to more of a Residence type of Occupancy it is still very well maintained and is exceptionally clean and Inviting.there have been some upgrades done to the rooms that are very nice. We on many nights are out quite late and are very pleased that security on the hotel grounds is quite good as there always seems to be someone patrolling no matter what hour of the night.This hotel has always been a great value for your dollars it is very conviently located between Marigot the french capitol and the Maho Area on the dutch side which has Casinos and entertainment, Baie Rouge Beach and Cupecoy beach are close by and are Beautiful Beaches.

Room Tip: The Lagoon view rooms are my choice as they are quite pleasant to have happy hour coctails after a d...

The hotel is oudated with no us power outlet and the hotel has no adapters. Away from everything. Don't stay on the french side, go for the dutch one. French side doesn't like to speak english neither show any sign of friendship. At the check out they told us to wash the dishs. Service room only once in seven days. The service room forgot to leave hand towels and we ask for but never gaves us. The pillows were very thin, we asked more but they never gaves. Empty hotel with only one pool working.

Room Tip: Stay close to the airport.

We stayed at this hotel for one night prior to leaving St. Maarten. The room was dated but clean and spacious with a large balcony including a kitchenette. The front desk staff was pleasant as well as the servers in restaurant. There was very little to do in the area although relaxing. No beach but two decent pools at this hotel and the food was ok. We really did appreciate having a place to leave our luggage as well as a room to shower in prior to our late flight. We would likely stay again for one night but we found the taxi overpriced from this hotel to the airport just for a one night stay.
