My wife and I made our first trip back to St. Martin after being there 24 years ago on a one day stop on a cruise. Man...what took us so long to return I will never know. I can tell you this though, we will be back next year and will be staying at the Grand Case Beach Club! After doing a lot of research on St. Martin and reading all the great reviews on GCBC, we decided to give them a try. Boy..did we ever hit the JACKPOT ! We spent 12 wonderful nights there and this place is amazing ! We reserved a 1 bedroom OF suite that was on the 2nd floor and it was immaculate, not to mention the gorgeous view. There was more room than we ever needed. The room was nicely decorated as it had been recently remodeled. The bed was very comfortable and right beside the sliding glass doors where we could leave it open at night to here the gentle waves and then wake up each morning to same soothing sounds. The room had everything we needed including a oven/stove, full size refrigerator, coffee maker and all cooking utensils and dinnerware. Nothing was lacking. Our housekeeper, Santana did a wonderful job of keeping our room nice and clean each day and she always spoke to us and always had a beautiful smile on her face! Beach towels were furnished each day and you could return them each to day to the office to get new ones and that was nice to have. The two beach areas on each side of the Sunset Cafe were great. The water was warm and calm and we snorkeled almost everyday around the rocks and saw lots of colorful fish. This was one of our relaxing times. The staff at the front desk were always very nice and helpful with anything we needed. One day our rental car had a tire going down and the maintenance guys had an air compressor and pumped it up for us. Later on in the evening we noticed that it had gone completely flat, so the guy at the front desk called the rental agency for us and they came out and brought us another car that night. On Thursday evenings, they have a guest reception where we got to meet others that were staying at the GCBC. They served free drinks and horsdoeuvre's which was awesome. We could have made a meal out of them! We also met Lynn, who was the asst. mgr. of the hotel. She was SO nice ! We asked her if we could take a look at some of the other rooms one day to see if there was something better that we would like to have on our next trip. She gladly set up a time the next day to show us some of the other available rooms they offered. We really liked the loft rooms since it was a little smaller but yet still had plenty of room for just my wife & I. I have to say though, all the OF rooms have a great view and you just can't go wrong with any of them. GCBC also has the Creole Watersports onsite and they offered free use of their kayaks, paddle boards and snorkeling equipment. Sylve was always so nice and courteous and gave great service and recommendations on some of the excursions they offered. She also worked her tail off all day, especially in the mornings when she was up and out early each morning putting out the chair cushions and brushing them off. We ate at the Sunset Cafe several times and the food was always delicious and the service was usually good each time we went there. Prices are a little high, but thats to be expected on most islands and also being on the French side of the island. They offered a free continental breakfast each morning. This consisted of a couple of fresh croissants and pastries with butter and jellies, coffee and OJ. Sometimes we elected to get a takeout box and eat it on our balcony. You couldn't go wrong either place as the views were always great at either place. There are a lot of fine restaurants within easy walking distance of the hotel in downtown Grand Case. We always felt very safe walking even at night. Each night we ventured out, they always had a security guard on the side of the road near the hotel which made us feel even more comfortable. All in all, we had a WONDERFUL time and really can't complain about anything. We would HIGHLY recommend this place as it is truly amazing. It was one of the most relaxing vacations we have ever taken. We relaxed so much, that even being there 12 days, we still didn't do all that we wanted to do. HA! So...I guess we will need to return next year !!!! We can't wait to return!!!!
