“Amazing place!!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 2, 2014

I travelled with my 8 months old son and husband. It worked out so well for us. Its an amazing place with great view and walking distance to grocery store, beach, bars, restaurant and the small dock to roam around.
Carine and David are the most friendliest and helpful people. They arranged a pick up for us at the airport. And we were safely dropped off at the Villa. It got everything I needed to prepare my son's food in the kitchen. Great comfortable bed. Got a nice bbq machine out in the deck for each and every room. You can sit and relax with a cup of tea in the mornings and over look a nice oyster pond.
I taught my little guy swimming on the pool at the property. The whole place felt home. And its like a small community there, when I went to the near by bar and restaurant everyone was soo friendly. I would definitely go back to Les Balcons..I miss it so much now.

Room Tip: No fitness center but walking around that area will be great workout! Got swimming pool.

Very nice well located apartment complex with swimming pool and large balcony with Weber BBQ and nice bay-view. In my opinion one of the better places to stay on Sint Maarten. Nice and helpful owners.

This was our sixth straight year at Les Balcons. If you are looking for a laid back atmosphere and a more simple approach to the potentially busy Island of St Martin, you can't go wrong here. This year for the first time, we used the pool almost daily. A nice way to wind down after a day on the beach and before dinner. Give it a try

Room Tip: They are all good, we prefer the upper two levels

We have been visiting this island for at least once a year for over 20 years. Have stayed in all sorts of places and Les Balcons is an excellent place to stay. The view front the front porch/desk was great. It overlooks a beautiful marina. David and Carine owners and managers could not have been more professional and accomodating.The place was very clean and update.The parking lot was secure. The rooms were very secure and a safe was provided for your valuables.The kitchen was very well equipted. Within walking distance there are a number fine places to eat. A car is needed to visit the nearby beaches. For those who like to cook ,there is a propane grill on the deck. The employes were courteous and accomodating. The pool area and water was very clean. Within a five minute walk there were a number of good places to eat. We stayed at . Les Balcons in January 2013 & 2014 and really enjoyed the stay. We plan to go back in 2015. Also , value you get is outstanding compared with other places to stay on the island.

Room Tip: All the rooms have a very nice view of the marina. Some rooms are on the pool level and they are ver...

We only had three nights here before our sailing charter but it was an excellent choice. Carinne was delightful and very helpful indeed. The room was perfect for our stay, with a small kitchen area so we were able to make breakfast and snacks for ourselves. a balcony with a wonderful view of the marina. The bed was very comfortable and the room was air-conditioned. We would certainly return but would definitely hire a car in future.

I feel I need to qualify this review by making it clear that my wife and I are of "early retirement age," as this may have affected our reactions, while younger folks may feel differently. First of all, we both expected the furnishings to be a little more luxurious than they were. Individual thermostats for the two rooms were a real plus and worked fine. The deck was pleasant with a lovely view. We were not prepared to have to supply virtually everything--toilet paper, soap, shampoo, coffee and filters. The site manager was very pleasant, but not always available. And they charged extra for every little felicity (e.g. beach towels). The description cited TVs, DVD and CD player, but several of these did not work. The manager replaced one of them, but shouldn't these have been checked in between guests? The location itself took a while to get accustomed to, although once we learned what was available and where, we were glad to be located where we were, rather than in the noisier, more urban areas, or the ridiculously over-developed luxury areas. The night before we left home, we learned of a serious mosquito-borne illness that was running rampant. This too detracted from the sense of a carefree vacation.

We spent a nearly perfect 10 days at Les Balcons. After reading reviews, we changed our reservation to one of the upper rooms to preserve our old legs, and had a comfortable room and terrace overlooking the marina. The area is scenic and quiet. Each morning we were visited by tiny yellow breasted birds with whom we shared our croissants and baguettes. Carinne and David were welcoming hosts who helped us with advice and tour reservations. The island is truly filled with friendly people and we are planning a return trip...perhaps with children/grandchildren at a future time. Only caveat: driving on St. Martin is a contact sport. I had no problem because 1. I learned to drive in NYC and 2. I was lucky, but many people we encountered said they preferred to use taxis to get around the island.

Room Tip: Upper level rooms are best for people who have difficulty walking.
