The Grand Case Beach Club was fantastic. My husband and I stayed at the Grand Case Beach Club for 9 days. This was our second time on St. Martin. The first time we stayed at Anse Marcel, which was nice, but far too remote for us. The front desk here is great. They give a bottle of wine upon check in. The grounds are gorgeous. We had fun exploring. There are a bunch of friendly cats that are cared for on the hotel grounds too. We arrived in our room, which was clean and modern and the stereo is already on playing a sampling of local music. We wanted to buy the CD and the gift shop gave us our sample for free because they were out of stock. I didn’t see housekeeping or security that often, but when I did, they were very pleasant. The people that really make this stay enjoyable are those that work at the Sunset Café. They outgoing and very friendly. Their attitude is so infectious that guests on the resort can't help but be in a great mood too. We had breakfast here every day, lunch twice, and ended every night at the bar, which was so much fun. Food, drinks and service were always fantastic. Lunch always end with a shot and it is usually their homemade coconut rum (a must try).
We rented a car, but did not find ourselves driving at night at all. There are so many great restaurants and bars nearby. Basically the hotel is at the very beginning (or end depending on your point of view) of the Grand Case strip. Everything on the right hand side of the stip (including GCBC) has a great view of the sunset and the Caribbean. Our favorite places to eat were the lolos, particularly Sky’s the Limit. The service at this lolo is better than the rest and the cook is very proud of her meals. I wouldn’t know what to recommend. The ribs, shrimp, mahi mahi, red snapper, and side dishes were all fantastic. Plus, meals are inexpensive (about $8) with huge portions and $1 beers. 1 US dollar = 1 Euro there which is important. Le Cottage was our favorite high end restaurant with a great wine selection. I do not know much about wine so the hostess helped us select it and we were very happy. We went to Calmos on a Monday and had a great time because they had a live reggae band. Enold's at the end of the strip was a very cool place, very cheap, great views, and a super friendly owner.
One bad thing to note-- the Activities Desk (Creole Watersports) provided a stark contrast to the great service we experienced everywhere else on the resort. They were not pleasant to work with. I asked what the St. Bart’s and Anguilla catamaran trips were like and was basically read the description on the flyer on the desk. I asked if they could set up a private scuba dive for me and they never did. I gave my room number for them to call and advise me of the status of the dive trip, but they never called. That’s a pretty basic task for an activities desk to set up. I ended up booking it on my own. Also my husband asked for a set of snorkel gear for us at the beginning of our trip and on the day we left, we returned them. We were told then that they charge us for the complimentary snorkel gear if we do not return them at the end of every day. No one ever told us that. Since we used the snorkel gear every day, we kept it with us. We didn’t ever have a good experience with them. Unless you really need to do something through them, book elsewhere. This is the reason I took a couple points off for service in my review. FYI, Octopus Watersports is one block away.
