This is the best little hotel ever!!! Collette omg is soooo friendly. I arrived late in the night and she waited until I got to the hotel, showed me around my room and recommend the little best restaurant around the area (Dinghy Dock). Now if your like me who does not need tv and want to get away from the phones this is the place for you. It is relaxing, friendly, peaceful. Just BEAUTIFUL. I will be staying here from now on when in St Maarten or St Martin.

All the good things that you read about this hotel are true. If you are going to St. Martin and are looking for excellent and affordable accommodation you need look no further than Sol Hotel. It’s not luxurious or filled with bells and whistles but it’s certainly a charming, clean and picturesque little hotel. A car is a must but if you want to access all of the island’s beaches and restaurants that would be the case almost anywhere you stayed.
Oyster Pond is a small and cozy spot and the hotel is in walking distance to a number of restaurants and bars.

My husband and two of our friends stayed at this small inn on the French side of St Martin for a night last month. The location was perfect and the rooms were clean & had a balcony with a great view of the Oyster Pond marina. We loved the fact that we were even able to walk to a nice restaurant for dinner and a minimart was nearby as well. Colette was not there the night we stayed, but another lady who managed the operation for the evening was lovely. We rented a car at the airport and drove to the inn. The parking was free and very convenient. We would definitely stay at the here again!

I read the recent reviews on TripAdvisor and selected the Sol Hotel because of it's location and value. My husband and I just returned from our five day stay and were delighted. The location is perfect for a quiet getaway. The room was clean and decorated with charm. Colette is warm and extremely helpful with recommendations for beaches and restaurants and her dogs became our adopted pets for the week. That was a nice treat that we didn't expect. Our room overlooked the pool, harbor and ocean. There is a little grocery store within a short walk that sells fresh french pasteries, bread and wine. We watched the superbowl at the Dinghy Dock outside bar with a nice crowd. We also had a chance to try all of the nearby restaurants and were not disappointed. We also rented a car and visited several beaches around the island. I would not stay anywhere else. The hotel is practically next door to Captain Oliver's where you can reserve a day trip to St. Barth's. Bring your wallet. Worth seeing, but very expensive.

Room Tip: We stayed in room #2 right in front of the pool and loved it.

A nice small hotel in a pretty location, near the marina and several good restaurants. The owner is a nice lady who was both friendly and helpful. No TV, Good WiFi. Furnished Kitchenette.

Try Momma Pizza just down the road.

We are just back from a sailing holiday in the FWI, sailing out of Oyster Pond, St Martin. We extended our stay by a couple of days at the Sol Hotel, only 5 minutes from the Marina and a real 'find'. It is elegant, quiet, simply furnished and with a lovely pool. We watched humming birds flit between the bougainvillea, gazed at the beautiful view and just relaxed. Colette is the most helpful of hosts, but not at all intrusive. If you prefer an individual hotel to the mass market we think you too will enjoy staying at the Sol.
