Great hotel - great service. Very clean, Great views. Had pool with swim up bar. They loaned us beach chairs and umbrellas - beach is only a short walk. Breakfast was simple and delicious. Does have a few stairs to climb - don't think they have any rooms without stairs to and from. Will stay here again next time!

Hotel's Favorite
My wife and I have been coming to St. Martin every year since 1997 and spend the month of January there -- always on the French side, which is less touristy and more cosmopolitan. For years we stayed in a lovely French hotel that slowly declined in service and condition. Six years ago, we moved to Hotel L'Esplanade and its sister facility, Le Petit Hotel. We LOVE both and cannot say enough good things about them. The staff at both are wonderful, personable, accommodating, and do everything possible to make our stay enjoyable. They treat us as family and all have become good friends -- Remy and Yamina (managers at Le Petit Hotel); Alex (manager at L'Esplanade),Philomena, Ana-Maria, Patricia, Eve and Julie (Reception at L'Esplanade); and Edith, Candida, Bernadette, Nancy and Carmen (housekeeping at both); Frankie and Alan (bartenders at the pool); Albert (friendliest guy on the island); and owners of both hotels, Marc and Kristin Petreluzzi. L'Esplanade is located right above the village of Grand Case, which is packed with good restaurants, and close to a bunch of other excellent restaurants and beaches. Le Petit is right in Grand Case and you step out of your room onto the beach. There is a free shuttle in the evenings if you do not feel like walking to and from the Grand Case restaurants, or if you are going to ones in the Orient Bay area. We have already reserved January of next year at L'Esplanade and will keep going back as long as we are physically able. I can recommend both L'Esplanade and Le Petit without equivocation, hesitation or qualification. If you decide to stay there, please mention to the staff that you read this review by Bill and Laura from Michigan. I think (hope) it might get you an extra-broad smile from the staff.

What a top notch place to stay. Staff was very friendly and helpful...making sure we ordered our french pastry order for the next morning!! The celestial bed was so awesome..it was hard to get out!! Our room was ready 3 hours early, upon entry to our room, there was music playing, a very nice welcome basket with a fresh loaf of french bread and complementary refreshments were available. Such a nice touch. The pool was so relaxing and the bartenders (Allen and Frank) are the best!! We really enjoyed sitting on the patio every morning enjoying our pastries and drinking coffee with a beautiful view and enjoying Happy Hour watching the sunset. Such a beautiful View!! Waling distance to some of the best restaurants on the Island...

..it couldn't get any better. It DOES! We feel at home here. Perfect things: 1. ALEX. She is a wonderful addition to the staff. 2. Alain and Frankie. What better bar dudes are there? 3. The wonderful staff. All of them! The accommodation speaks for itself. I love the new breakfast in the lobby. As others have said you can order pastries the evening before. But, if you dont there are fruit, cereal, juice, coffee and baguette. With that kitchen in your room you can stock up on eggs and other things as well from Simply U. If you forgot wine, they have it. We relax completely when we are there. That's what vacation is all about. No crazy pool aerobic music, etc. You can read a book and chill. Or have one of the boys' seriously good drinks! Grand Case IS chill. Our favorite little haven for many years. See you again soon!

We had a wonderful stay at L’esplanade! It was our first time in St Marten celebrating our 3 year anniversary. from the moment we got here, Eve greeted us and was so welcoming! The place is fabulous on every level! It was such a quiet and relaxing place! Everyone that works here is so nice! The pool is great. It’s just a short walk to the beach and a short walk to all of the wonderful restaurants. The rooms are so nice, wonderful balconies, and super comfy beds! Free breakfast and wonderful pastries every morning. We loved it here and will be back! Thank you for the wonderful hospitality!
