Nice vacation

Me, my husband and daughter stayed at this hotel for 8 days. Nice place, convenient location but need upgrade. It's 2014 and someone would like to see something better. We are not fancy people we don't stay much in the hotel so no need for luxury just basic. As far as cleaning goes it's pretty clean considering the ancient stuff. Everyone working there was extremely kind and very helpful. The breakfast they offer is pretty good but same exact things everyday. My advice rent a car and explore the island as for the hotel with what we saw not that many better options.

Great solo trip

The hotel staff could not have been nicer. The hotel was very clean, everyone has a terrace. Next time I would have upgrade to beachfront view. The hotel is on a main street. The hotel is right on the water with its own beach (careful there are coral and rocks intermingled). Nice pool. Close walking distance to town if you just want to get away and do not want a car. I was great just sitting on the veranda, reading a book while listening to the waves. Good local restaurants. I would have liked the hotel to provide pads for their beach and pool chairs. Very relaxing place I would go again. The package of this hotel and airfare was a great deal.

Go out of the Hotel turn right, walk a few blocks, before the bridge turn right. Go to Mario's Bistro and had a fantastice meal. On par with anything you can get in NY or Paris.

Terrific vacation spot

This hotel is in the perfect location for an adventure on St Martin/St Maarten. Our room was spacious and comfortable with views of the sea. Breakfast buffet was outstanding. Wifi was unreliable and the beach was not the best and our TV was the size of a toaster oven. Nonetheless, we would stay there again.

Island vacation

It was a beautiful spot with great views. Perfect sunsets. Good pool for laps and swimming around and small beach of it's own. I like the way the hotel is set up inside and the rooms were spacious and the beds comfortably firm. Excellent breakfast buffet. Easy to hop in your car and go anywhere. The staff were lovely and helpful and went out of their way. Most dinners we ate in Marigot, either at the marina or at the waterfront. All the food was amazing; loved the lolos. Downside to hotel was the lighting was dim in the rooms (for nighttime reading) and we could have used an outlet. We didn't care that the tvs are tiny because we didn't watch tv. I'm sure that the upcoming renovations will change things but we enjoyed it!

Miserable stay

hard to get to. there was a free breakfast but only partake in the Orange juice. Rooms are very out dated. The hotel summary said a recent improvement to property but could not tell where they improve on. I will not come back.

was good in the past

the hotel was sold this year and will close from April 2013 until Dec 2013. We been in this hotel for 10 years but this year with the new owner it seems that he has no idea about running hotels. They will do a major refit but what we heared, there is some money problem. Before, we could recommend this hotel, now we wont do so again. For us it was a negative experiance this year. Sorry about the negative news, but this was our feeling. Photos from the renovation plan are attached below. Best regards, Leopold Besau.

Great value for the money

The room was quite adequate but we needed an iron. Also, our toilet ran the entire time. I told them at the front desk but the problem was not fixed. We just would turn the toilet valve off. The buffet breakfast was above average. I did not like the location. There was nothing close enough to walk to at night. It was too quiet. The Dutch side of the island has a lot more going on and is safer.
