We came here for our honeymoon hoping for some peace and quiet, white sands and blue water. We were not disappointed. GCBC club is located on the less busy French side of SXM. If you're looking for more of a party atmosphere, the Dutch side is more suitable. The hotel is a short walk to many great French and Italian restaurants. While many of the streets are very dark at night, I never felt unsafe. Many of the locals that we encountered were quite friendly and eager to help with directions or suggestions of places to eat or things to do.
We stayed in a spacious one bedroom with a loft. While it was very clean upon our arrival, we did notice tiny spiders on the kitchen counter top from time to time. The cleaning staff was always friendly, however we wish that they had done a more thorough job with our room. They never cleaned the loft portion and our beach towels were not cleaned or replaced.
The room was in an excellent location, we could hear the waves and watch the sunset everyday. We could literally be on the beach in 5 minutes or less. Our honeymoon package included, one day free car rental, complementary bottle of champagne , $30 coupon for the hotel boutique, celebratory cocktail at the Sunset Cafe and a picnic basket.
Carlos at the Sunset Cafe, which is located on the grounds of the GCBC, makes the best Mojitos ever. The whole staff was excellent and very attentive. It's also a great place to just relax with a great view of beach and ocean.
GCBC and the town of Grand Case is a wonderful place to go if you want to get away from the rat race. Tasty drinks and even tastier food!
