This was my 3rd trip to St Martin. First two trips I stayed on the Dutch side. The Hotel Mont Vernon is obviously an older hotel/resort. The grounds themself are quite tired. Pool itself is great, pool deck, surrounding areas are really in poor repair, in fact, are flat out terrbile. Trust me, I am not one to complain, however, I won't gloss it over.
Our room had a TV with just one channel, so check with the owner of the unit you will rent to know if there are any TV channels. Not that TV is important, but, at the end of the day it is nice to have something to entertain you when you are sitting around waiting to go to bed.
The location is nice enough. It is at the far end of Orient Beach, away from the nudist area. I would guess it is nearly a mile walk to that area. The hotel is high on a hill so if walking up the hill is a problem, then don't stay here. The view from our unit could not be beat.
Parking is very iffy, as in some nights there were no spots for us to park. We had to drive down the street off the property. The parking is on a really steep hilly area. You will definitely need to be in some shape to walk this hill. There is a small internet cafe on site, opened only at night. A small pizza place, GREAT pizza, again, open on at night. And there is a small shop there for water, beer, etc. Open two time periods a day. As to restaurants to eat at, there are two French restaurants sort of near by. Most people would want to drive to them. If you wish to go to a store and buy food to eat in your unit, then this would make this place a better place.
In my opinion, I would NOT stay here again. If I wanted to be in the Orient area I would stay down in the Orient area and not on this hillside. The owners of my unit met me at the airport and the unit was all that was described. Just remember, you are on a hill, as in walking down a steep side to the parking area, and a steep side to the pool or beach area. This is NOT for an older crowd, or anyone with walking impairments.
