We have never been to St. Martin before. I chose Grand Case because I read it was close to great restaurants, and the views from the hotel (L'Esplanade) looked amazing. Now fast forward to the last week or two when I started reading about a lot of crime and violence in the area. It looks like there was another attack at a restaurant that looks close to our hotel. At 7 PM.
I emailed the hotel (before reading about this last attack) and they said that they have 2-3 security guards at night. They said the path to where the restaurants is is safe at night (??). Can anyone who has stayed there comment? We will have a car, but it sort of sounds like people with the cars were also attacked so I don't know what to do. Is there a nearby city that is more safe that we should go to for dinners instead?
