The hotel is located above the Orient bay, offering a good view on the sea if chosing one of the highest bungalows. The furniture are more than usual, nothing special but clean. The bed is not a memorable one. At customer disposal in the bungalow rent, a terrace, a small kitchen on top of the bathroom; all necessary to live...

Unit in a bungalow with two other units. Quiet air conditioning and nice facilities. Most of the other guests are French and it has an international feeling. We stayed in unit 600 and it had very high ceilings with intricate beem work and lots of room. There was a huge patio with room for a large table and two lounge...

Large room ...yes. With a large veranda. Nice if distant view. But there end the positives. Crumbling plaster, broken dirty furniture, peeling paint, rotten caulking in the toilet and bathroom, cracked tiles, dirty mosquito net over the bed, none of it enticing - in fact all the holiday attraction of poor social housing. Terrible wifi, malfunctioning TV and a shower...

We booked a very good priced trip. My expectation was not high and that was good. The staff is very friendly and when you ask they help you. The bungalows are very huge and I guess that is what helped me not look everywhere and see everything. The view was very nice. We had a terrace with a nice view....

Very nice contrast to the ugly "resort hotels" you find many other places. Accommodation here consists of one-level-houses, 3 rooms in each. Nice and big rooms and balconies. Parking available outside each of the houses. I had nice breakfast included in the price. Just 5 minutes down to the very nice Orient Bay beach, where sunbeds are available for hotel...

The villas strike a balance betwwen old and new , clean and well kept inside and out you can't help get caught up in the charm of la plantation. The views from your veranda every morning and evening are unforgetable. The Orient bay a short walk away, tea shop, boutiques, restaurants , mini-mart, everthing you could possibly want or need...

Spent one week at La Plantation. The rooms are large and clean, though a little worn in spots. Everything works in room, hot water,fridge, tv, bed was comfortable. Pesky mosquitos at the beginning till ac was set, then we had to apply mosquito stuff on our skin just incase. The rooms could be opened up to a large patio, which...

Hubby and I came here for a wedding. The resort is more of a cottage style. If you looking for fancy decor, room service, luxury this is not for you. This hotel to me feels more like a local, 3 star place. Hotel plantation says it all. Each guest has a cute tiled villa. Loved looking up at the roof...

We have stayed at this hotel for the past 12 years and every time I am in awe at the beauty of this place! This is not a fancy hotel, it is a small French hotel with 3 room villas. Each has a kitchen with a refrigerator which is great. The staff is wonderful and friendly. I could rave and...

We just got back from our '2nd honeymoon' in St Martin. La Plantation was the perfect place to stay! Views of the ocean are always on our list and were beautiful from the top villa at this hotel. Walk to the beach is a few minutes away and is gorgeous. Pool lovely and room was always clean and very comfortable....
