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.

We stayed at the Hotel L'Esplanade in late June. The location is excellent! We were within walking distance or a very short drive to Grand Case's "restaurant row" and the crystal clear waters of Grand Case Beach. The hotel staff was attentive and friendly. Natalie, the manager, was very sweet, helpful and knowledgeable. The onsite spa was serene and definitely... More

This was our fourth time we stayed at this hotel. And it is still as great as the first time. They really know how to keep up this place. We prefer Grand Case because of the relative quietness compared to the Dutch side and the many good restaurants literally on walking distance. They don’t have a restaurant but like we... More

The location is amazing, the staff are attentive and the experience is simply the best. It never gets old - and we have already booked to go again next spring. Congrats to Christen and staff - this place is... More

My wife and I just returned from a wonderful stay at L'Esplanade. We stayed in a deluxe loft. The room was spacious, immaculately clean, extremely well appointed and the amenities were all top notch. The location of L'Esplanade was perfect, we were able to walk directly to Grand Case for meals - highly recommned La Villa - and to go... More

Just spent a week with my husband and adult children at L'Esplanade and it was perfect! The hotel rooms are spacious, finely appointed and comfortable. Each room has a mini kitchen set up which enables you to enjoy breakfast in your room or to set up a relaxing cocktail hour. You may opt to cook a meal but that's not... More

This beautiful hotel is in a pristine location on the French Side of island. The rooms are all gorgeous and have a great view of the ocean. The hotel is easily in walking distance of all the great restaurants in Grand Case. It is a quick drive to the Dutch side or to go to the famous Orient Beach. Do... More

Being hoteliers in St. Marteen we decided to go to the other side of the island to experience a night on the French side for my wife's birthday at arguably the best hotel on the island. We chose L'Esplanade because most people say it is the best and after our brief stay I would have to agree. Again, because we... More

The hotel was paradise!! The staff was so accommodating, amazing and so friendly!! The place is beautiful with a spectacular view! The rooms are fabulous.
