We stayed at the Sol Hotel for the first week of February on what was our first trip to St Martin. We enjoyed our stay very much. Collette who runs the place is very friendly and helpful and made suggestions for eating and sightseeing. The rooms are a good size with a balcony and a small kitchen. There is wi-fi available but you have to position yourself near the office to get a signal. This is no great hardship as the area overlooks the pool and there are loungers and chairs.
We sometimes had breakfast at Nana's which is a cafe/ takeout nearby. On one evening we ordered a meal from Nana's and ate it on our balcony. This proved to be excellent value. However the mosquitoes seemed to also enjoy feasting on our pale, northern European skin so I would recommend sprays and candles etc. if you want to enjoy your balcony. We took a taxi from the airport when we arrived and had a rental car delivered by Automax the following day. We were able to drop the car off at the airport at the end of our stay. In travelling around the island we did not find anywhere that we would rather have stayed and it was always good to come back to the hotel at the end of each day. It would however be very limiting to stay in Oyster Pond without a car.
We enjoyed the happy hour at the Dinghy Dock Bar and afterwards went to local restaurants and it sometimes felt that we were travelling from the USA to France in the space of a few hundred yards!
