My wife and I traveled to beautiful La Samanna for a quick 5-day retreat. The hotel was classy and had a real European vibe. The rooms are comfortable and tastefully decorated. The lobby is open-air with a nice bar overlooking the blue water. We had drinks at the bar every night before and after dinner. We ate at the restaurant and found the food to be excellent.
The beach is very nice and the water is perfect. Beach service is available from the restaurant. Food and drinks were pricey, but of high quality and to be expected at a resort of this caliber.
The resort is private so we didnt have to worry about the beach being overcrowded or people coming from off-resort.
There are plenty of great restaurants in St. Martin so do go off the resort to try a few.
We would return in a heartbeat
