I stayed by myself (43 year old woman) at the Grand Case Beach motel for about 5 days In late November 2011. It was perfect for me. My room was steps away from the beach, I had a cute little patio where I would have my morning coffee, then I would descend about 5 steps and I was on the sand. It is very private, I could go topless if I wanted to. (Remember, it IS technically France) The beach is gorgeous, small and mellow. Perfect for reading. If I wanted more to do I could easily go to other parts of Grand Case, where they have drink service ($$$) on the beach and the oom-cha oom-cha house music... But i did not.. I enjoyed the sound of the beach from my room at night, as well as the view of Anguila. The motel is straight forward and clean. There is a little kitchen, a TV. There is a little market within walking distance (everything is walkable) I spent very little time in the room actually. Also, there is a taxi driver who lives across the way so airport pick-up/ drop offs are easy to arrange. The best thing is that it is incredibly inexpensive compared to the rest of St. Martin, so I was able to book a sailing trip around the island with the money I would have spent on a fancier hotel.
