My wife and I were looking for a vacation that offered Yoga but not a Yoga retreat. We had great Yoga for over an hour daily with great teachers in a magnificent open air facility. The hotel was beautiful with a heated pool and great bar. Our room was a beautiful suite with a patio and view of Grand Case...

Comfortable digs with kitchen and porch. Pool with swim- up bar. Always something new. The added benefit is being next to Grand Case with many restaurants, each with a budding French Chef. Don't even mention the weather. No wonder that St. Martin is #19 in the world to visit

On the French side of St. Maarten in the hill of Grand Case, lies the best hotel I've ever stayed at. The architecture of the hotel is beautiful and The view overlooking the small French town below is filled with amazing food, beach and culture. A 5 minute walk into town and the staff and overall vibe of the hotel...

Spending a weekend staycation in Grand Case is quite a treat; L’Esplanade is beyond a dream come true! The hotel, the rooms, the staff, the food, the constant attention to the improvement of every detail. L’Esplanade is close to perfection in every area. The pool bar is excellent, kudos to Alan for his wonderful cocktails and taking such good care...

The bed is amazing, the shower is powerful with an endless supply of hot water, the amenities are perfect, the bathroom is very functional with mirrors in the right places and lighting fitting to your needs, the A/C works very well.

Just got back from a 7 day stay at Hotel L'Esplanade. I was there last year for the Heineken regatta and booked another stay there this year. Had such a great experience last year, I didn't even bother looking for a different hotel! It was nice to see a lot of returning guests there this year. Some of which I...

My husband and I spent a few days at Le Petit, their sister property, the year prior before going over to Anguilla. We loved both, but for different reasons. Must say the pool w/ swim up bar and spa probably helped edge out this location in our book. We like to beach hop while on the island, so it was...

As returning guests, we thoroughly enjoyed our stay. This was our first visit during "season” and it did not disappoint. We really loved the heated pool and the pool bar with swim up stools and the attention of the bartenders including Alain and Ramone. We were able to attend the Saturday night cocktail party at the pool twice! We loved...

Perfection in Grand Case. EVERYTHING was fantastic, our suite was clean, comfortable, well furnished. The view from the two terraces was amazing, and the bathroom and shower were incredible. Simple luxury. The service is almost indescribable, there was nothing we asked for that was not taken care of: extra towels, dinner reservations, transportation, car rental, directions, and even a repair...

Grand Case is clearly the nicest part of St Martin and Sint Maarten, and L'Esplanade is probably the best place to stay in Grand Case. The loft room was perfect for us, the view over the bay looking west is excellent, and it's an easy walk to all the outstanding restaurants in Grand Case. We liked the pool very much...
