If you don't need direct beach access and prefer to explore...L'Esplanade is the perfect escape. Steps from the famous "restaurant row" in Grand Case and a 5 minute drive to Orient Beach...the hotel is wonderfully appointed and meticulously clean. We had a one bedroom suite for a week and can't say enough about how great it was to have our... More

Just returned from a great stay on St. Martin and Hotel L'Esplanade. We very much enjoyed our experience at this hotel and found it lived up to all the very positive reviews we had read. We were initially booked at a large resort on the Dutch side but, on further research, and especially the Trip Advisor reviews, decided on the... More

This was my first trip to St. Martin and we usually stay a beach front properties. I was a bit nervous not having all the amenities but this place was amazing. There was a french bread and bottle of water waiting for us and we went to the "US Market" for groceries...daily fresh french breads were amazing! I highly recommend... More

I read someones review that said "There is no food on the property". The owners of L'esplanade know better than to put a restaurant on L'esplanade for one very good reason. IT IS A 5 MINUTE WALK TO THE BEST RESTAURANTS IN THE WHOLE CARIBBEAN! You are in Grand Case! There is an entire street dedicated to french (and one... More

My husband and I just got back from our trip to St. Martin and would go back to L'Esplanade in a heartbeat. We got wonderful service from each service person at this laid back boutique hotel. And, just to clarify, I mean the atmosphere for the guests is laid back, but each hotel staff person we encountered was professional, yet... More

This hotel was just beautiful - we came to the Grand Case area under the suggestion of a family member. This hotel was in the perfect location, small walking distance to the fantastic restaurants within Grand Case - but in a more secluded location which made it perfect for our honeymoon. The hotel was up to date (we stayed in... More

a very special and romantic small hotel were they treat you like royalty. Spacious , immaculate rooms with fabulous views of the harbor. Walking distance to tons of good restaurants. A hidden treasure. We were at the Westin before and what a positive difference L'Esplanade made in our opinion of St. Martens.

We stayed in a loft suite in mid February 2010. Paying the extra for a loft suite is well worth it. It is a noticeable difference over the regular suites. Recommend requesting a suite away from the lobby when making reservations. Room King size bed was very comfortable (firm), pillows were very soft (not firm) Full kitchen is provided. There... More

This place was so perfect we did not move the car for 4 days. Every room has an ocean view and look s very much like the website indicates. YOu have more privacy on the upper floor rooms with better water views, but the lower floors have the well manicured gardens + a view. You can't go wrong. This is... More

Went there end of Jan /early Feb 2010. Loved the scenic views and love the French side in general. The Dutch side is so commercial and gets the "cruise" set with fannypacks and all. The Grand Case area is full of life, good food and wonderful, carefree people. Yes- the hotel is on a hill- but we managed fine- even... More
