“Great Location”
Reviewed July 13, 2014

-as previously written, not a typical hotel, some units are privately owned
-perfect for the adventurers who are looking to be cost-effective
-room is large, clean, and great value for your money
-bed is definitely not luxurious but doable
-large washroom, also very clean...low water pressure and even though it advertises there's a hairdryer, trust me, BYO!
-quiet, great local people nearby to make acquaintances, french market, gas station, and boulangerie within steps
-very safe
-during my stay, water did not work twice but only briefly and power went out temporarily
-beach is clean but is on lagoon side, beautiful...not that 'swimmable' beach you see in pictures but offers incredible aquatic life to see even just from the shore
-were worried about renting a car but did so from Kadra at the hotel and everything worked out fine
-rent a car, see the island, make the best of your sleep, enjoy the beautiful terrace the room provides as you plan each days escape!
-location fantastic

Room Tip: -studio rooms have beautiful terraces that are nice for winding down with a bottle of wine after bea...

Not a very fancy hotel but very clean, basic and especially good for families. Rooms are very large and the hotel is directly on the amazing beach of San Martin. The water is clear and pools of fish will swim by...so beautiful. The hotel is nothing special but it is a nice base for a your vacation or business trip on the island. Very comfortable and clean. Hopefully you won't too much time in the room anyway, but out enjoying the island! The staff is very friendly and helpful...Get a rent a car and have the best vacation in your life.

Stayed at Le Flamboyant for one night before catching a flight. There is no reception desk but rather a room behind a frosted glass door where you check in...very odd. The room was basic but very large and had an outdoor kitchen. The hotel is not on the sea side but overlooks the lagoon. It had a nice beach and two pools that were quite well maintained. This hotel is nothing fancy and some units are nicer than others...due to owner-operated format. There are shops within walking distance but I would recommend getting a car.

On my first trip to St. Martin, I stayed at the Le Flamboyant Hotel in Nettle Bay courtesy of Salome L.

The efficiency unit was ground floor and comfortable. It was clean with basic modern appliances and a/c. The owner, Salome L., was very gracious in accommodating every need that was requested.

The resort itself is not very fancy nor upscale. If you're looking for a resort with pampering accommodations, Le Flamboyant is not for you. But if you're looking for basic lodging to use as a platform for your adventurous vacation, for the money, this is the place to be.

A car is a definite necessity in St. Martin. There is an abundance of beautiful beaches and small villages to see. My favorite beach is Friars Bay Beach (the Roots Beach Cafe is the best). Calm, serene waters with a wide beach front.
Grand Case has a little taste of New Orleans. If you catch it on the right night, it proves to be very eclectic.

The website makes it look way better than reality
they have not had a fitness center for 5 years
the Food and Beverage facility is a snack bar at the beach ...very basic and dirty
the grounds are in bad shape
the staff is rude and don't care
there is only WiFi in the lobby; not rooms or in restaurant / bar as advertised
stay away ....RUN !!!
the value is very poor ; there are many more options that are better...
service is not even in their vocabulary so don't expect anything ....
would never go back

Room Tip: don't go ....so somewhere else

The room was nothing fancy at all, clean, comfortable. The island itself was so so bumper to bumper traffic, the Hotel was not easy to find, we had to ask for directions. Nice little bakery at the corner. Limited activities.

Had read some very critical reviews, but made reservation anyway. For the price it is a great deal. We truly enjoyed ourselves. Yes it is a little dated, but it was clean and everything was in working order. The location is great and the beach/pool area was quite nice. Had a minor problem with the power in the room, but when I reported it they took care of it right away. We had a view of Nettle bay - we were on the top floor. Language was not a problem. It is centrally located, close to Marigot and the airport. We were happy with our choice and plan on retuning.

Room Tip: Top floor in any of the units is best. No elevator though.
