L'Esplanade was the second stop on our honeymoon, and it was a fabulous spot for us. It was a beautiful room, and had a full-size refrigerator, sink and stove with plenty of dishes and pots and pans to cook some simple breakfasts with. A bottle of delicious champagne along with some snacks and coffee were there waiting for us when we arrived.
The hotel was very quiet - we were there in early June 2012. We only saw a few other guests while we were there, and usually had the pool to ourselves. Walking to the restaurants in Grand Case was a 10 minute, easy walk, and we did that most evenings even though we had a car. The food was comparable to what we can find in San Francisco - that is to say fabulous. There are very expensive options and cheaper ones available, based on what you feel like for the night. There is a little beach up the road, but you will have to drive to other beaches.
L'Esplanade also helped us arrange for a car rental - the guy picked us up from the airport, and drove us to the airport, and was punctual and very friendly.
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at L'Esplanade and would definitely come back if we wanted to stay in St. Martin again.
