My parents and I went to St Martin for a getaway. The staff on entry was SO KIND, and accommodating. They even upgraded my parents, at no charge. They treated us so nicely and were always available for questions! They arranged for a nurse to do our covid tests for our trip back to the US. It was so fast and easy. The breakfasts were amazing! The bread, eggs and bacon were our favs for breakfast, and the sushi for lunch was unbelievably good! The beach was GORGEOUS! A short walk from our place.. white sand, impeccable grounds, blue/teal, warm water… drink service provided on the beach! We got massages while there and it was honestly one of the best I’ve ever had. The champagne we ordered for our room (to celebrate my grandmother who had passed) was magnifique! The pool was small and quiet. We hung there a couple times and watched the iguanas in the trees! The pool did not have a railing on the steps, which made it unavailable for my parents, who have some balance issues. That was literally the only down side. The rooms were very clean, very modern, air conditioned… fridge and mini kitchen! We were very impressed. Cleaning service was every day. The convenience of the restaurants a block away was EVERYTHING. We restaurant hopped each night and had SUCH GOOD FOOD! There is no reason to leave the resort, unless you stay for an extended time. I recommend taking a taxi instead of renting a car. Roads are small and difficult at times. Things we wanted to do but didn’t have enough time for: Pinel Island, Loterie Farm, Grand Case. We would definitely recommend La Playa!

The hotel is located in a really nice area with its own beach service. Rooms are large, always clean and modern in design! However, what makes La Playa special is the people working there. From the moment you arrive till the moment you leave, everyone is so so so friendly and welcoming - you will feel at home after a very short time. Special thanks go to Elena at the reception for always providing support and arranging special requests for us. The service team at the beach restaurant is amazing! Everyone is down to earth and happy to assist you with personal wishes. Always smiling, regardless of the weather and the time of the day. If you are a foodie, you must try the food at the beach bar - they have the best Sushi we have ever had! Thank you la playa team for making our holiday so memorable, it was our first time in St. Martin, but for sure not the last one and we are already looking forward to returning to La Playa! Greetings from the Hungarian family from snowy Austria.

I stayed here with my fiancé for my birthday getaway. It’s a really lovely hotel. The garden suite room was gorgeous and spacious. Traveling from NYC, I appreciated how quiet the area was- perfect for relaxing but yet still has great lively restaurants to visit in the evening. The staff are absolutely friendly and attentive. I was able to book my excursion and massage with ease. Overall great experience.

We just spent six nights at La Playa Orient Bay and I cannot recommend it highly enough. I was looking for a small hotel on the beach with a pool, a room that would comfortably hold four, and a nice breakfast, with a friendly staff. La Playa checked all of the boxes and then some. The staff is super friendly, the beach is beautiful, the room was great (even had a kitchenette with a coffee maker), and the food at both breakfast and lunch on the beach were fantastic. I spent hours and hours researching hotels in St Martin for this trip and am so happy we decided to stay at La Playa. The front desk staff helped us organize a day trip to Pinel Island (also highly recommend) and gave restaurant recommendations (Le Piment is the BEST), they even have a nurse who will come onsite to administer your COVID test the day before you leave, to return back home. I highly recommend this hotel!
