I was raised on St. Martin so I know the island very well and L'Esplanade is absolutely my favourite hotel on the island. Besides the amazing view the beautiful rooms are kept very clean and the staff is very polite and helpful. Have a drink at the (heated) pool with owners Marc & Kristin, they are a lot of fun!!!

I've stayed here twice and I will definitely keep coming back to this place. L'Esplanade is a beautiful hotel. The rooms are very comfortable, and the views from the terraces are great. This is the one and only place where I sleep better than in my own bed. The rooms are also very clean. All the staff members are very...

I've stayed here more than 10 times now and every single visit still feels as magical as the first. I will never get tired of the beautiful surroundings, comfortable beds, tasteful interior of the rooms and the most friendly staff. Don't forget to try the wide selection of cocktails by the heated pool!

I have traveled all over the world with my band and I must still say there is no other hotel I have ever stayed in which I would rank higher than L'Esplanade. Marc and Kristin are hotel owners/managers extraordinaire and simply amazing people all round.

L'Esplanade is a luxurious gem sitting atop the hills overlooking Grand Case. The staff was friendly and always helpful in lining up a catamaran trip from St. Martin to Anguilla, reservations at some of the most outstanding restaurants during the Christmas holidays, and side trips in which we explored the island. Our room had a knockout view of Grand Case,...

Free shuttle into Grand Case was very helpful. Pool area was gorgeous and the bartender was terrific. Would absolutely stay here again. Amazing views and great location. Restaurants near by were...

This is our fifth visit at L'Esplanade and we keep coming back for the breathtaking views, the extremely friendly staff and the huge and gorgeous rooms that make you feel more in a retreat than a hotel. World class dining at Grand-Case is only minutes away as are the glorious beaches of Baie Orientale and Anse Marcel. Can't wait for...

This is our third visit to L'Esplanade. We came to this property when we had a horrific experience with another property on the Dutch side. Small boutique hotel. Everyone is very gracious & welcoming. Rooms are extremely comfortable. We take the one bedroom suite each time & is perfect for facilitating leisurely breakfasts and pre-dinner cocktails. The pool is well...

As always, our recent trip to L'Esplanade was nothing short of WONDERFUL! The property is beautiful, the rooms are lovely and the service is unsurpassed. We so loved taking the shuttle into town, walking up and down restaurant row in Grand Case checking out the menus and the shops and of course, the food is like no where else in...
