Single Doc going to Saint Martn/Sint Maarten

Single 50 year old doc looking for a relaxing stay on the island, either side. Looking for complete relaxation, daily breakfast, on the beach, reasonably close by shopping. Would prefer a B&B or smaller intimate property, but open to options. Nightlife is NOT a priority. Adults only would be nice, but not a priority either....only rest, relaxation, and lots of beach time. Dates of travel will be later half of June through September. Any ideas? Thanks.

It's maybe difficult to combine all of your options into one location Doc - shopping is basically in Philipsburg and in Marigot, the beach is fine in Philipsburg, smaller hotels too, beachdining - yes - adults only - no

I agree also with L'Eslanade but the OP wanted a place on the beach.

The Grand Case suggestions are excellent but the Doc is looking for shopping nearby and breakfast on the beach, both lacking at these fine small hotels

In Philipsburg he would have both. This was my reasons for suggesting the Pasanggrahan Royal Guest House. He would have numerous dining options, as well as duty free shopping all within walking distance.

Bobcat, I had read it as breakfast included and on the beach, which was why I suggested Le Petit. I may have misinterpreted the post. Also, there is shopping within walking distance in Grand Case, albeit not comparable to the Dutch Side.

I did not know Le Petit serves breakfast on the beach, certainly what the OP is looking for, but there really is not any shopping in the village, not the kind of shopping you would find in Philipsburg or in Marigot.

Very true. Le Petit serves breakfast every morning. You can eat it on your balcony, in your room or on the beach.
