The hotel is located in Marigot Bay, which has a reputation of being the most beautiful bay in Caribbean. Well, it does look nice from the hill above, but...Hotel, marina, small shopping center and several other buildings are cramped around the water's edge. There is hardly any room left. There are numerous yachts in the marina, also very close to each other. All this contributes the feeling of being very crowded in a small place. The beach across the bay (requires 2 min ferry shuttle) is tiny! And if you expect a tuquoise Caribbean colors, you will be disappointed. The water is clean, but it is not blue. We hired a car and a driver, which was not cheap, and visited other beaches on the island. Marigot Bay beach is by far the least interesting and least attractive.
The hotel itself has two nice pools, well mainted grounds, nice open air bar and restaurant (although both very pricy), very helpful staff. Unfortunately, their breakfast spread is very limited and mediocre. So is the food. Rooms, actually suites are nicely designed. They have a full kitchen, large living room, large modern bathroom and nice, comortable bedroom. Furniture is modern and tasteful. The problem is, only bedroom has an AC, so despite the ceiling fans, living room is just too hot to be comfortable. The lighting is very very poor in both living room and bedroom. There was a sporadic wireless internet during our stay.
