Forget the hustle and bustle and rough waters of the nearby Orient Beach and settle for a real taste of France with the unhurried Grand Case beach and restaurants.

Love is a great place to spend a lazy day on the sun beds and enjoy the calm blue water and enjoy the excellent food at lunchtime.

Room Tip: We were not staying in the hotel but using the restaurant and sun beds. We were advised that there w...

Right on the beach and along the strip of restaurants and bars in Grand Case, don't miss LOVE. The staff is great and the hotel/bar has a unique vibe. It's worth an evening of drinks but even better if you can stay. Rooms were simple, large and airy. Road side was not quiet, nor expected to be, but I really enjoyed waking up to the sunshine and local banter at the coffee shop across the way. Everything is within walking distance, groceries, shops and the beach. It's a social place between local friends and visitors, but also small and intimate.

ITs all very nice - if you are french (!), Grand Case has a feeling of serious crime, I think i was offered hard drugs more in Grand Case than anywhere else on the Island. The Hotel is lovely, a good bar area, just all a little expensive compared to other hotels I have stayed in on the Island. The owners were very welcoming and in fact delightful on check in. We stayed in room 6, which is a side view of the sea, with a shared balcony area, not any privacy, if thats what you want. (You can book room 7 at €250 per night with its own small balcony if you want some outdoor 'you time'.) The room is average size, with poor storage, only hanging space and a shelf. The coffee machine in the room is one of those Nespreso types, very nice. However, you get two coffee capsules on the first day, and thats it.. You have to pay for any others, thats not cool. The Shower is broken, and its annoying, because its easy to fix, and just lazy not to. Its noisy there. Lots of wheel spinning cars, motorbikes and domestic 'punch ups' on the streets.. Other than that, Grand Case is a bit boring, its ok for a couple of nights, Try a day at Loterie Farm, and stay on a friday when there is street market,,and it will all be a little more bearable. Have a meal in one of the french food houses, the menu is the same everywhere, but the food is very 'rich typical Parisian style..

Room Tip: room 7 - otherwise you will feel cheated

We found this hotel by driving past and booking directly. We enjoyed a lovely stay and the staff were are attentive and friendly. When i realised i had left a hard drive in our room after our holiday i tried to contact the hotel on many occasions, via email, Facebook and phone. To which i have had no response or been able to find a phone number that i can get through on. So i can presume the hard drive is long gone now. It's a disappointing end to what was a very lovely stay there. Mosquitos were a problem in our room too, which kept us awake at night. But the hotel its self is in a fantastic location and the staff are great.

We came to Grand Case many times beginning in 2008. Unfortunately the economy has severely impacted Grand Case that has resulted in a lot of decrepit buildings, garbage and serious crime. This hotel is beautiful and the owners are very hospitable.
The rooms are spacious and luxurious. Sadly the wonderful things that were done at this hotel cannot overcome the tragic surroundings or the dangerous crime. I blame the government of French st Martin for not keeping Grand Case safe.

Exellent location directly on the beach, nice room, modern shower. The housekeeping lady was very good and helpful. Many stores and restaurants around as the front entrance of "Love" is right from the main street. We had some drinks at the "love" bar downstairs (on the beach), both drinks and service were excellent. I do agree with all comments in previous review, except our room wasn’t dark and look exactly as its picture.

Muriel & William the owners are fantastic, warm and welcoming.The hotel is perfectly placed on a magnificent little beach all to their own with inclusive lounge chairs and umbrellas even little cocktail tables in the water! The decor is extremely tasteful, trendy and in perfect harmony with the Caribbean/modern theme.The rooms are ver comfortable, bedding and amenities are of very high quality, a great little bonus of a Nespresso machine (with two capsules) in the room to start the day in the perfect way, Oh and a great size fridge too. The menu restaurant/tapas/cocktails is superbly thought through,presented and priced, club sandwiches and mango mojitos are divine! Our short stay was so memorable and relaxing that we would go back in a heart beat! Thank you Muriel & William!!! Karen & Olivier Deplaix

Room Tip: The new sea view rooms in the "LOVE residence" are fabulous!
