Stayed over one night before departing on our cruise for the maiden voyage of the Terre Moana with Paul Gauguin. That is another story... The Grand Case is nice, but if you are used to the luxury of Tahiti or other Caribbean hotels, this may seem a bit basic. The amenities in the room where just average at best. The bathroom was just so-so. The view from our room was nice looking out toward Anguilla. The beach area, if you call it that, was very small and I can see that it would get very crowded quickly. The continental breakfast that they offer is pretty slim and you will need to order a full breakfast to fill you up. (see review of Sunset Cafe). The up charges are pretty steep for a resort. Charging $5 for a small bottle of water from the mini-bar, fitness center is another $5 to sign up, if you wish to use the on-site barbecue grill there is a $10 cleaning fee, kitchen service to clean up dishes is another $15, a deposit posted daily to your room for beach towels. I understand the need for fees, but it seemed a bit excessive.
If I get the chance to return to St. Martin, I simply can't say that I would seek out the Grand Case. There are just better alternatives with nicer amenities. Again, the reviews here make it sound great, and that was what brought us to it to begin with. But it just wasn't up to our expectations.
