We did quite some research about Sint Maarten and small scale hotels and B&B’s on the island. We were looking for an atmospheric place with nice rooms, an attractive pool area, friendly service and if possible an ocean view from our balcony. And all this without paying a fortune. Sol Hotel was exactly what we were looking for and exceeded our expectations! Colette’s warm welcome and advice on activities and restaurants were really great. The location is just stunning and a small supermarket (Epicerie), a lively bar in the harbour (Dinghy Dock Bar) and some restaurant options are all within walking distance. Our room (Comfort room) had a large balcony with small kitchen and offered a bit more privacy because it did not have a direct access / open view to the pool area. We can definitely recommend the Comfort room. See the pictures for the view from our balcony. The room was cleaned every day. The only disadvantages we can think of are: the mosquitoes (but they are everywhere on the island) and that you need a car to go to the nice beaches. The closest beaches are Dawn Beach on the Dutch side, with a rather American atmosphere and Baie Lucas on the French side with a deserted feeling and no facilities. In terms of beaches we really liked Le Galion and Pinel Island. Sol Hotel offers great value for money and we had an excellent time at this small and charming hotel.
