We really enjoyed our stay at the Hotel Beach Plaza in May 2014. We were told it was their quietest month as there was only a handful of guests staying during our week. The swimming pool was our private pool each time we visited it and the small beach was quiet and uninhabited most times. Our small beach had some of the best snorkeling on the Island as we snorkeled at a number of spots around the Island including Pinel Island. Our room was on the 3rd floor (Rm355). It had a lovely view of the harbor and mountain across the street. The room was very clean and bright and the maids cleaned thoroughly each day. The king bed was very comfortable. The hotel was airy and bright and very clean and we enjoyed the lovey breeze that flowed through the hotel. The breakfasts were good and plentiful. Eggs, bacon, sausages, pancakes, cold cereals, breads, yogurts, fruits and cheeses. Lots of coffee choices in the self serve coffee machines. The hotel is located a 5 minute walk from Marigot. There is good shopping there with lots of shops. The French side deal in Euros but they will convert the prices to American dollars. Some stores gave the Euro and American Dollar at par. We enjoyed our walks into town for shopping or to try some of the many interesting and delicious restaurants. There is also a Simply food market for water bottles,(not recommended to drink the tap water) snacks and lunch items that is a very short walk from the hotel. The sun sets at 7:30. There were warnings posted at the hotel not to walk at dark which is a very good idea. We were also told not to leave anything visible in our rental car as well. There were no issues by following these tips. Definitely rent a car to see the many wonderful sights of the island such as Friars Bay, Orient Beach and wonderful restaurant choices in Simpson Bay (Lees for Ribs and Lobster.) We also took public transit ($2.00 each way) to Phillipsburg ( Dutch side that deals in American Dollars) and enjoyed a day of shopping and sight seeing. Note: In regards to the Mosquito issue we got a few bites but didn't get sick. Just remember to bring the bug spray. Enjoy!
