St Martin was our first stop in our honeymoon and we chose Sol Hotel based on TripAdvisor reviews. The important thing to recognise is that Sol Hotel is not a big sprawling resort or star-hotel. Once you understand this, accept the positive and some negative points that come with this. Then everything will be fine and this is a brilliant hotel. We stayed for 4 out of our 5 nights in the orange room overlooking the bay (sorry cannot recall the name but think the number was 08). It had a fantastic view of the marina and we enjoyed it very much. The location is great as long as you expect a quiet and relaxed setting. It would be best to rent a car though as car rentals are inexpensive and there is no convenient public transport. The small french shop selling fresh baguettes and necessities is also highly recommended!
Separately, and most importantly, the best part of this hotel is the manager - Colette. She is wonderful and made our stay memorable. She recommended that we rent a car, got a car rental arranged through a neighbouring resort, made cab bookings and generally provided excellent recommendations for beaches and travel. She is a very kind and helpful person and the hotel benefits greatly from her management.
Anyway we would recommend this hotel to anyone. It is reasonably priced, has an excellent location and rooms with great views. If you want a big resort / star hotel feel, please look elsewhere. Otherwise, go ahead and enjoy this hotel.
