Very pretty and private

Would recommend Fri, Nov 20, 2015
I have been to the island about 10 times and like to try different properties. I love the Orient Beach area and usually find myself in or around that location. I arrived around midnight and was greeted by security who showed me to my room, btw had a great mattress. It was not the room I had requested however the next morning everything was sorted out, including an upgrade to a lovely suite. They really went above and beyond, it was greatly appreciated. The front desk staff were lovely, as well as the manager, wait staff and room staff. Thanks to all!

Great value

Would recommend Wed, May 20, 2015
This hotel was recommended by someone who frequents SXM and has stayed at the hotel before. I wanted to be close to Orient Beach but get a good deal and this definitely worked out. It looks just like the pics, so no frills but clean and neat. The mosquito net is a must as the vegetation around the hotel is lush. The toilet didn't flush properly and the WIFI did NOT work in the room at all (not good since the cable is basic) so on a rainy day there is not much you can do in the room. Other than that, I would stay again.

Even better than the pictures!

Would recommend Wed, Feb 4, 2015
This place was really great. What the pictures don't show is that every morning you gather around the pool for breakfast and beyond the pool in the background are enormous green, verdant mountains. Absolutely beautiful background in the morning. Also, right down the street is a charming town center that is oh-so French in feel. My boyfriend and I travel often to France and with this being the first time in St. Martin, we didn't know what to expect. When we made the 5-minute walk to the center of the small town (or rather village), we came upon a fully stocked market with french wines and french products for very good prices. And across the street, a charming pedestrian plaza with about six restaurants ranging from thai to italian to french cuisine. A wonderful surprise for lunch and for dinner. Also, the beach is only a minute by foot further beyond. The hotel was extremely generous in their meals, courtesy and ability to help out with information. Highly recommend.

Dining

Eat dinner at least once in the center of the small town down the road from the hotel. Walk there. The proprietors of the bars and restos are charming. It's a bit of France in the Caribbean. Also, save money if you like by purchasing wine at the "Petit Casino" market (no, it's not a gambling casino...it's a French chain of mini-markets), and taking it back to the hotel with some cheese and baguettes. :)

Pleasant accommodating staff

Would recommend Tue, Feb 3, 2015
La Plantation is my usual go-to for my annual (minimal) trip to Orient Beach. The staff has generally remained stable and they are friendly and as accommodating as possible. My room was ample for a solo traveler but nothing fancy. This year I experienced an issue with not having hot water in the shower, which I eventually reported. An attempt was made to fix it but it wasn't really corrected to where there was hot water, although a stinky smell was present after the repair attempt. This was the first time I was made aware that there was an ice maker on the premises - something not really advertised. One of the drawbacks for me is that the office isn't open in the morning until after 8:00. That is inconvenient because there were times I needed to exchange a beach towel or access the computer/internet in order to plan outings for the day but was unable to because the office wasn't yet opened. The breakfast is served from 7:00 am so it would be nice if the reception area was open beginning at 7:00 also. Another issue I experienced was the delay in (or even failure to) deliver telephone messages to me in a timely manner. There wasn't a message system on the phone in the room so if you receive a call, and a message is left, you have to depend on the front desk person relaying the message to you. In one instance I was promised that if I received a message it would be delivered personally to my room, however, that didn't happen in at least one incident and I learned other attempts to leave messages were made, but the messages weren't delivered. The phone/message system needs to be updated. Despite these few incidents I consider La Plantation to be a reliable place to land while on the island and will definitely consider going back on future trips. The breakfast buffet is always the same, but very sufficient and tasty. Love the chocolate croissants!

Huge Room & Veranda

Would recommend Sun, Jun 8, 2014
I was very pleased with my stay at La Plantation. The room was huge…..one of the biggest hotel rooms I've ever stayed in. I loved the wrap around veranda, as I had a corner room. The ambiance of the property was pleasing and it was very quiet. I enjoyed the daily breakfast buffet. While this is not a beach front property, Orient Beach is a relatively short walk or a quick drive away. If you're looking for action, this isn't the part of the island to stay on……the Simpson Bay area might be a better choice. But for a relaxing stay at a very nice property on the quiet side of the island, La Plantation is a good choice.

Dining

It's a short drive to Grand Case, billed as the "gastronomic capital of the Caribbean", with many excellent restaurants on the main street in the little town.

Great Hotel

Would recommend Mon, Dec 23, 2013
For the price, location and amenities, I really don't think La Plantation can be beat. We received an upgrade to a suite upon check-in without even asking and were really happy with the size of the room. The kitchen looked to have been recently updated and had everything we needed. However, since breakfast was included in the price and we were near the great restaurants in Orient Village, we didn't cook very much. With that said, the hotel is about a 5-10 minute walk to the Village and also the beach. We felt safe the entire time, both on the hotel grounds in and the surrounding area. We've already started planning our trip back. And, of course, we'll be staying at Hotel La Plantation.

Attractions

The hotel has an agreement with three of the beachfront restaurants that allows free access to their beach chairs. You can either walk to these down the main road toward the beach, or take a short cut to Waikiki and Coco Beach through a side road. You'll see the signs. It cuts the beach walk to about five minutes.

No disappointments here!

Would recommend Fri, Dec 20, 2013
We just returned from a 7 night stay on the island and split up our stay at different hotels. This was our first stop. Our room was clean and view from balcony was beautiful. Very close to the famous orient beach which we visited each day. Village restaurants are great also. This is so worth the money!!!

Nightlife hint

Simpson bay or Maho is where you need to be for nightlife
