Bleu Emeraude
Ranked #1 of 8 B&Bs / Inns in Grand Case
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed December 25, 2013 via mobile

We visited Bleu Emeraude earlier in the year and the building itself is beautiful. Since the airport is in the Dutch side and the hotel is on the French side the commute was long but keep your eye out for the hotel as our taxi driver passed it the first time due to signage. The room was beautiful with an ocean facing balcony. The kitchen was well stocked. The morning breakfast items were delicious especially the coffee.
Now here are a few things we would have wanted to know before choosing this hotel. In the winter months the beach outside the hotel does not get a lot of direct sunlight and is very breezy so you get sand blasted. If you try to bring the beach chairs closer to the water to be under the sun, the hotel staff did not like that. If you walk down the beach towards the restaurants those beaches get more direct sunlight and are nicer. Try the Lolos for lunch and dinner!
Very nice hotel but if you are looking to just lay on the beach and enjoy the warm sun this is not the best choice of hotel for that.

Stayed: March 2013, traveled as a couple

We stayed in the two bedroom apartment for 5 nights over Thanksgiving. It was lovely - one bedroom with ensuite and king bed, the other bedroom with a queen bed. Both with access onto the beachfront balcony. No problems at all with noise. Having two bathrooms was a real bonus, as well as the space to spread out on the table and chairs near the kitchen, or one of the 4 lounge chairs or table on the balcony. We ate dinner at the apartment almost every night. The kitchen was well equipped - the only thing we really missed was some cling film, don't forget to buy it when getting your groceries.

The apartment looks just like the pictures on the website. The apartment is right on the beach and a 10 minute walk from Grand Case restaurants and shops. The views of Grand Case, the beach and over to Anguilla are perfect.

The property was full, but it never felt it. We enver had problems getting lounge chairs on the beach or pastries/coffee at breakfast, which is offered from 8am until 10am.

Frederic and Maya are so welcoming and extremely helpful, offering to make dinner reservations, give directions, etc.

If you love simple, clean, sea, French breakfast, full kitchen, beach and peace, then this is your place. We are so delighted to have stumbled upon this gem!!
Tripadvisor requires more verbiage, however anymore would be redundant. Perfect is perfect.

We stayed at l'Esplanade in May and returned in October and stayed at Bleu. The main reason was that we wanted to be on the beach. Bleu was closer to town than L'Petite but not by much.
The residence was great. Maya checked us in and gave us a great tour of the place. We stayed in a 1 bedroom. The balcony and view of the beach and beyond is great. I am not sure if it was the time of the year or the proximity of the building but the sunset was better at L'esplanade. We walked down to LOVE to catch the sunset and it was spectacular.
The room is very contempory and comfortable. The bed is low to the floor. The kitchen is perfect. They have wine and beer available if you don't want to go out to the store. Breakfast is baguette and couisant. Juice and Coffee. Just right.
The beach out front is not crowded. The swimming is easy and you can take a nice walk. There were a couple of local dogs that want to be your friend but they were harmless.
If we return to SXM we may stay here again if we choose GrandCase.

Bleu Emeraude gets a 4 of 5 rating. It is a beautiful and modern, contemporary hotel decorated for those who like international contemporary flair. The rooms are kept very clean and the staff is friendly. The view of Grand Case beach and the sound of the surf outside your deck add to its charm. There are two improvements that would make this a 5 star accommodation. The bed is hard and the choice of the two pillows are both hard. The bedroom is street-side and if you have been to Grand Case, you know the street can be very busy. The bedroom needs white noise to drown out street sounds if you like to sleep later than the locals get up for work. The A/C in the bedroom has a separate control with a strong setting that does drown out some of the noise but it reverts to a low speed after about 15 minutes. We kept waking up to hit the "strong" button throughout the night.

Room Tip: We stayed in room 301. If you like to sleep late, consider a white noise generator or earplugs. Wo...

Our stay was so amazing! We flew in on October 1st 2013 and stayed until October 8th. From the day we arrived to the day we left Fredrick & Maya did everything possible to enhance our experience. Definitely went above and beyond! My husband and I both work in elite concierge positions so we often times are astounded at the poor or mediocre service many places give. Maya & Fredrick really made it a GREAT experience!

Beyond the service the hotel was modern and very clean. I was very impressed with the fact that even high traffic areas were always free of sand, I mean it is right on the beach! Dishwasher & laundry in room was a huge luxury.

Stay here, you will not be disappointed!
