My family and I stayed at the Grand Case Beach Club from July 9 to July 17, 2013. We took a taxi to the resort from Princess Juliana Airport. If this is your first time at Saint Martin, I recommend taking a taxi to Grand Case Beach Club because the hotel conveniently has its own car rental service right in the main lobby. So, enjoy the taxi ride (less stressful than driving yourself for the first time on the island) and rent your car at the hotel! They bring your rental car right outside your hotel room! Entering Grand Case Beach Club's property was an eye opening experience. This place is absolutely beautiful! Every day we were greeted with friendly workers always smiling and saying good morning or bonjour! Being from Pennsylvania, seeing geckos and different kinds of lizards everywhere was really neat, too! Security always patrols the surroundings, making us feel very safe the entire trip. Ruth in the office was exceptionally helpful with questions we had and giving driving directions. We had a beachfront room, which was incredibly cozy, comfortable, and very clean! The air conditioning was flawless; our room was always a good temperature and allowed us to cool off after hot days in Philipsburg, Marigot, or exploring all of the different beaches! We couldn't have been any happier with our stay here. The first floor consisted of a bathroom, full kitchen/dining area, and living room. The upstairs had two rooms: one with two queen beds and a bathroom and the other with a king size bed and bathroom along with a decent sized balcony holding two lounge chairs. Pure perfection! A highlight of our trip was taking the Scoobi Too Catamaran boat ride with Captain Dave (my family got a kick out of him) to Prickly Pear island for snorkeling and Anguilla; although, we never made it to Anguilla due to weather, we went to another private beach on Saint Martin--Happy Bay. Prickly Pear was such a delight; the island had great snorkeling in the clear turquoise water accompanied with pure white sand. I've never seen a beach so beautiful. Open bar and lunch is included, too. Also we were lucky enough to see a sting ray when docked in front of Happy Bay Beach! Highly recommend doing this excursion--book it right at the hotel and the Catamaran picks and drops you off right on the Grand Case Beach. Very easy! The location of the resort is also in a great spot because it is safe to walk into Grand Case town and check out some neat shopping spots and awesome restaurants! Go to Calmos Cafe, Bistrot Caraibes, Il Nettuno, and L'escapade to name a few (5-10 minute walks)! You can't go to Saint Martin without checking out some LoLos, too--Talk of the Town and Sky's The Limit. Experience it! Another big highlight was the Sunset Cafe at the hotel! A basket of different French breads along with coffee and orange juice are free for hotel guests, but they also offer a menu of other items to purchase for breakfast! All the breads, the pancakes, and the french toast are delicious! Lunch and dinners there are great, too! The waiters and waitresses are all extremely nice. I especially enjoyed talking with Chantal and Karine! On the last day of our stay, my mother started crying as we finished our last breakfast at the Sunset Cafe! The tears came to Chantal's attention and she immediately began to hug both my mom and me. It was a very nice moment and showed what an amazing family vacation we experienced on this wonderful island and exquisite resort. Grand Case Beach Club's room number 59 (cinquante-neuf) will always be a little piece of home to both me and my family. The perfect vacation!
