We have just spent 10 glorious days as the first guests to stay in L'Esplanade's spectacular villa perched high above the hotel.

Sweeping views, an open floor plan and a private pool greeted us as the friendly and efficient L'Esplanade staff escorted us to the villa. The fully equipped kitchen made cooking and entertaining easy, and having daily maid service made us feel like we were staying in the hotel. In fact we had all the privacy we wanted while still having complete support from the Esplanade staff. Staying in the villa offered us the palette and inspiration to create a unique and imaginative experience.

Make a reservation, book a flight and have a great time!

L'Esplanade is a gorgeous boutique hotel, but the service is less than savory. Any time we called the front desk to ask a question, the person who picked up (one of them being Philomena, a manager), seemed as if we were inconveniencing them. They were curt and unfriendly. There was another young lady who checked us in, and she was far from welcoming. We expected her to tell us more about the hotel and surrounding area; unfortunately she seemed disinterested and lazy. Hopefully this review will change their negative attitude.

I must note that there was one man that brought our bags to our room and was extremely helpful and enthusiastic that we were staying with L'Esplanade. And Alain, the bartender at the pool, was the friendliest person at the hotel. He took the time to talk to us, tell us about St. Martin, and made some amazing drinks to boot! The housekeeping was excellent. Our room was always impeccably clean.

The hotel is in a good location, just a short walk away from restaurant row. Stand outs for us were L'Hibiscus and Spiga. Definitely grab some BBQ at one of the Lolos, and watch the sunset at Calmos Cafe.

Make sure you bring lots of cash -- there are VERY FEW ATMs on the island, and the one closest to the hotel was broken.

What can I say, i was a little worried booking it myself versus a travel agent, but from the beginning the staff was warm and accomendating. They even booked all our dinner reservations for us which were perfect. Upon arriving no hassel warm and welcoming to us took us directly to our room which was gorgeous just like the pictures a welcome basket with bread, cookies, coffee tea and a bottle of champagne. This was the first vacation that I never had to call the desk to complain that there was a problem. The maid service was the best I have ever had and I travel alot. The view is to die for every morning with my coffee out on the balcony and looking at the view puts you in the best of moods for the whole day. We met the owners at a welcome party an they are lovely. We tried this versus a big name hotel and it was perfect. Quiet, stressfree vacation. i will return again and tell everyone how great this trip was.

This hotel was booked based upon the glowing reviews on this site, and it was actually better than expected. Everything is very nice, with balcony's in every room overlooking the bay. Service was fantastic, providing a free bottle of champaigne for our honeymoon.

Within walking distance to over 20 brilliant restaurants. Be sure to hit up Calmos Cafe during the day, relaxing on the beach and then having a great lunch.
