Adorable hotel on the hill overlooking Grand Case! The room was fabulous! The bathroom and shower were awesome! For breakfast, we ordered French pastries to be delivered every morning! There's not a restaurant on site, but the Bartender Alain and his mom can cook you anything at the bar grill for lunch!

Spectacular hidden gem boutique hotel delivered breathtaking views and exceptional service. The room was a peaceful luxurious retreat.

Alain the bartender delivered unique creations of both drink...

I have visited St. Martin quite a few times. I take the long flight from LA because the special blend of Caribbean and French culture is worth the trip. Once I found L’Esplanade, there was no turning back. In St. Martin you kind of need to decide whether you want to walk to the beach and drive to dinner or...

After spending 5 nights at Le Petit Hotel right on the ocean, we moved to this sister hotel on the hill for our last 2 nights. Both places are stunning in their own way. Both our within walking distance to the row of restaurants and both feature gorgeous, modern rooms with amazing views. L'esplanade also pays attention to little details...

The hotel is in an excellent location within easy walking distance from the superb restaurants in Grand Case. Our room was lovely, clean and spacious but the hotel felt more like an apartment than a hotel for several reasons. There is no restaurant and the reception is mostly unmanned so that guests have to go downstairs to an office with...

Always on the lookout for smaller, peaceful destinations in the Caribbean, we had hoped L'Esplanade would be a keeper, but it is not. It's certainly an attractive property with a helpful staff. And although it's a 10-15 minute walk into the village, there's a complimentary shuttle in the evening to make things a bit easier. The rub is that there's...

The best part about this hotel is the staff and the service, it really is wonderful and you feel as if the team genuinely cares about its guests and how to make their stay perfect. Nothing is too much trouble, however minor, and the team goes out of their way to meet any request you might have. The place itself...

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!!!
