Grand Case Beach Club

Reviewed September 2, 2013

This hotel was an excellent choice for us. We were considering La Samanna, but decided against it because there seemed to be a lot to do in St Martin and we planned to go to Anguilla and St Barts. It did not make sense to spend a lot of money on a hotel that we used only to sleep at night. The mixed reviews about La Samanna also worried me This hotel had great reviews on trip advisor and it was half the price of La Samanna, so we took a chance.

I have to admit that I was taken aback a bit when we arrived because the entrance seemed like we were visiting someone's home. We are used to large resort properties or large chain hotels, and this was very different. You ring the bell at the gate, and someone lets you in. After you check in, your room key opens the gate. A bellman was not automatically available to help with you bags, etc.

The hotel was a nice surprise though. The room was great. We had an oceanfront loft room, and it has every thing you need. The décor is modern with a Caribbean vibe - the room pictures on the website are very accurate. The room had a small, but full, galley kitchen, including cookware and dinnerware. The room also had a dining area and a sitting area that led to the balcony. The balcony had a lounger and a dining table and two chairs. The building is very close to the water - so the sound of the waves was very soothing at night.

Service at the hotel was great - staff was friendly. The great attitude of the staff really stands out since St Martin did not seem to be the friendliest island. The staff did a wonderful job keeping the room and grounds clean, and they seemed to care. Jerome at the Sunset Café was wonderful. Depending on what you are looking for, the location is excellent or just good. It is only a few minutes walk to downtown Grand Case, which seems to be the heart of good cuisine on the French side and perhaps even on the island. Almost every building on the street in downtown Grand Case has a restaurant or a lolo. On the other hand, Grand Case is on the north side of the island, and if you plan to be doing a lot on the Dutch side, it could take 20-45 minutes to get to the attractions on the Dutch side depending on traffic.

The food at the Sunset Café was good - some items were really good - e.g. the calamari rings. The included breakfast for two is exactly two pieces of French bread, two regular size croissants, two small croissant type pastries, and two eight ounce glasses of orange juice.

We did not use any of the water sports equipment because we spent very little time at the hotel. The beach at Grand Case is okay. If you are a beach connoisseur, you will not be impressed. It is definitely not at the level of the beach at the Ritz Carlton on Grand Cayman or Horseshoe Beach in Bermuda or even some I have seen in the Bahamas, but maybe that is not a fair fight.

In sum, this is the little hotel that could - great room and service; good location on the French side. Not many frills, but you really don't need the frills because there is so much to do on St Martin and the surrounding islands.

This was our second time staying at the beach club and it couldn't have been better.... even with a toddler and a mother along this time! The room was perfect! Two bedrooms and two baths definitely gave us the feeling like we all had enough space. The rooms are clean and stylish and the beds are comfy. The beach is perfect and never crowded. The grounds are well maintained and there is an amazing hammock overlooking the beach that I swear is one of my most favorite places in the world - once you try it out you'll know why! ;) I can't say enough good things about the Grand Case Beach Club!!! I'd live there if I could!

This is a modest, yet very honest hotel. While some ordinary wear and tear was evident (and I note that there is discrete on-going renovation work on some buildings), we found the Rooms very comfortable and convenient (including a full size fridge, range and oven). While part of the Grand Case beach has eroded, the petit plage was wonderful. Staff was friendly and th Sunset Cafe was a convenient source for breakfast, beverages and light fare. Highly recommended (for anyone not looking for a luxury resort). I expect to be a return guest.

This an amazing property. Hotel staff always helpful and at disposal for any query or doubts.
Rooms are huge and very well equipped (with a small kitchenette, fridge, microwave and cutlery). Complimentary breakfast is very basic (juice, coffee/tea, bread, jam and small pastries), however it fitted with our morning dietary requirements.
The hotel also offers beach towels (changed every day)!
The location is perfect: only a few steps from Grand Case main street with lolos and restaurants (thus, you do not need to drive at night to have dinner) and a few kilometers far from Happy Bay (best spot on the island). The hotel is also one of the two stops of ScoobiToo cruises that will take you to Prickley Pear (amazing!) and Anguilla.
The prices during the low season (April - October) are extremely advantageous. Rates double during high season.

Room Tip: Bring mosquito repellent.... Rooms with garden view are surrounded by trees and grass... good enviro...

Married for almost 29 years, our sons are grown, our nest is empty. We discovered this location on a television program (my better half found it), so we started our research through Trip Advisor and then further online. Then we booked our trip. Our expectations were very high and all of them were matched or exceeded. The GCBC was very comfortable, clean, efficient and had a very friendly staff. We took the Scooby Too boat tour to a secluded beach and the island of Anguilla, it was all day with drinks, snacks and lunch on Anguilla. We rented a car for a day and visited the Dutch side of the island including Maho, Philipsburg and also Marigot along the way. A wonderful vacation!

My best friend and I wanted to get away and relax. This was the place! Everything was fantastic. Everyone was so amazingly nice, we're going back! The beaches were so beautiful, we didn't even go anywhere else. The beach lounges were so comfortable that we would fall asleep on them. The rooms were military cleaned everyday! The service and help from everyone was beyond stellar. There are no words. The best thing I can say is, we're planning are trip for next year already.

Of all the places in the area, I believe the beach club to be the nicest. It is a gated property with unbelievalbe beach front land and ultra friendly staff. It also houses the Sunset Cafe, which has a simple but delicious menu. There is an activity center where you can rent snorkels and other water sport items complimentary. Silvi is the best!!
The French side is much more local than the Dutch, It has MUCH better restaurants and a local feel. It is very poor, but the people are extremely friendly and know how to cook! We rented a small truck and toured the whole island. By the end of the trip, we had a good feel for where we were going and saw evereything.
I would definietly reccomend the hotel for its proximity to town, beautiful beach, activity center and wonderful staff. What a blast!!

Room Tip: Upstairs rooms have gorgeous sunset views while downstairs room have back door access to the beach...
