Grand Case is a favorite destination with its great food . L'Esplanade was very relaxing with its beautiful pool and views. The shuttle to local restaurants made the trip well worth it. The view from our room was great, the service was outstanding and everyone was extremely helpful.

We decided to go to St Martin at the last minute and was referred to Hotel L'Esplanade. It's a charming and small hotel up on a hill from Grand Case, but within walking distance to the beach. We rented a deluxe loft with a kitchen and half bath downstairs and a king size bed with full bath in the loft...

We stayed at L'Esplanade in late October for our 20th Anniversary. We first spent four nights in Anguilla before going to St. Martin. The Hotel was outstanding. Our suite was very quiet, comfortable and spacious, and the view from the balcony was simply amazing. We loved having breakfast on the balcony each morning. The staff was very friendly and helpful....

We recently ran a Yoga Retreat at L'esplanade! What a perfect place to do so. We took 8 students/guests with us! They all loved the hotel and space to practice yoga! We will be back next year! The staff and accommodations are exquisite!

I’m normally quite critical of the places I stay at for better or worse but L’ Esplanade is more like a second home to me than a hotel… We have some tough winters in the north east and L’Esplanade helps get me through them, because I know waiting for me is 5 solid days of perfection. I have stayed here...

This hotel is amazing. The pool is awesome with a swim up bar and a bartender on duty at all times. The spa has weekday special and the massage was so relaxing and energizing. Rooms are clean. Service is incredible and food to die for. I'm going back.
