We just returned home from a wonderful, relaxing week at the Hotel L'Esplanade. Everything was great, the room (deluxe studio) was clean and had a beautiful view from the balcony toward the Caribbean sea. The pool was lovely and never crowded, although we were there right before high season, so that may make things more lively. Alan, the bartender was great, and makes any drink you could want. We had great meals all week, staying mostly in Grand Case, favorites were Spiga, Calmos cafe, and Pascal's - all were great. Sunset Cafe at Grand Case Beach Club was very good and the setting right on the beach was gorgeous at night. Get a table above the rocks and toss little pieces of bread to the fish, great fun! The water was amazing, beautiful turquoise color, and so warm! Take Sebastian's boat taxi at the beach club, near Sunset Cafe to the Marigot market, it's the only way to travel! But if you need to take a taxi, Marcus is wonderful, the front desk at the hotel can arrange it. Also don't miss doing the Fun Sail on the Celine, a 40 foot catamaran run out of Simpson Bay, we cannot recommend it highly enough, great trip to Tintimarre and some nice snorkeling spots. You can find info online about Neil, the captain, and the Celine. We also bought some clothes at Simply Elegant boutique and the owner, Nash, was great and gave us a great deal. We can't wait to go back to St. Martin!
