My wife and I flew into St Martin rented a small car from Avis with GPS and drove to the Alamanda Resort. The resort had our reservation for "Delux Oceanview" which was a large room on the second floor with large balcony and we checked in easily. The room was spotless and housekeeping was great. The bed was European style without innerspring but we sleep on a firm matress at home and it was perfect for us. We could see the ocean from the balcony and slept with the Balcony Doors open and could hear the waves all night.
The desk was manned 24/7 and we felt very secure. We also had a safe in the room. Although we did send part of a few days touring, most of our time was spent at or near Orient Beach. Evenings we ate at the local restaurants an easy walk from the hotel. Our favorite restaurant on the square was LePiment for food quality and price.
We visited in January and had continual strong warm on shore winds. Coming from Florida the water temperature was a litte cooler than we expected but not too cold to swim. We had a great relaxing vacation.
