Great beach

This hotel is in a perfect location, just one block from the most beautiful beach in St. Martin (Orient Beach). It is a small facility therefore more intimate. They serve a good continental breakfast in front of the beach, with a great panoramic view. We enjoyed swimming and shopping in nearby stores.

L'Hoste a great place

It was perfect for us. Right on the beach, close to some excellent restaurants, and easy to drive to island cities and points of interest. The staff was wonderful--friendly, very helpful, and efficient. A beautiful place to which I'd love to return.

A-OK

L'Hoste is a no frills comfortable hotel with a good location and close to beach and great service. Very happy with the rooms and service. If you are expecting a fancy upscale hotel L'Hoste is not for you. Katy & Kelly and the team are all very welcoming and go out of their way to make sure your stay is great one.

Perfect lay back vacation

We stopped counting how many times we stayed at this hotel. It meets all our needs. Few steps from the beautiful beach, and you can have your refreshments and lunch right there at La Playa restaurant. All you need(shopping, best cuisine, live music) is right there, a walking distance away.

Showing its Age

I first stayed at l'Hoste 16 years ago when it was nearly new. It is not nearly so nice as then as maintenance and repairs have not kept pace with the ravages of being so close to the Caribbean. If you want a luxury hotel to spend lots of time in the room, I'd suggest elsewhere but if you want a comfortable place to stay while spending time on one of the most beautiful and famous beaches in the world, l'Hoste could be perfect. The staff is friendly and the room was clean and neat. Our issues were with lights that didn't work, decaying wood , and doors which wouldn't close easily. The economy of St Martin has suffered under the E.U. and it shows up in abandoned houses and bad roads and overall the feeling that things are not as good as they had been in the past. I would recommend Hotel l'Hoste to anyone wanting an economical place to stay on an incredible stretch of beach but not to those who demand ultra posh surroundings in a hotel.

Excellent value, great location

This is the second time we have stayed here in the last three years. The staff is very nice, the light breakfast is complimentary and served on the beach bar. You can get more American fare if you want it. You will pay extra but it is a reasonable amount. The location is on the beach and thats what makes this place special. The rooms are nice, but not five star. But for the modest price and location, they are a good value. I will stay again.

Great location on beach

We stayed at the L'Hoste Hotel for 4 nights for our stay in St Martin. We wanted to stay at the Orient bay beach and the hotel had the best deal from all the available resorts in the area when we were searching for a hotel. The location cannot get any better.. it's right on Orient beach and the beach is definitely a gem of a beach... the complimentary beach towels (through the hotel), chairs and umbrella that are offered through La Playa (Guess La Playa is owned by the hotel) are great. The beach staff is very good as well. The part of the beach directly accessible from the hotel also looked much more well kept and cleaner than the rest of the beach.. i know... it sucks when people leave straws, drink cups, cans on the beach... especially on such a nice beach. However the La Playa staff did a good job of keeping the section of the beach clean. Other great aspect of the hotel is the complimentary continental breakfast that is offered... they have a good selection of Croissants, baguettes, sliced bread, yogurt, cereal, juice and coffee and it gets your day started very well. The hotel is also very close to the Orient bay village that has many restaurants ($$$). The Hotel did give us a few coupons for wine glasses at the local restaurants which is definitely good. There are however a few sandwich places right outside the Orient bay village which are affordable (and the sandwiches are pretty good). The staff of the hotel is very courteous and the rooms were well kept.. The only few issues we experienced was with the WiFi service.. The hotel does advertize that WiFi is available in all the rooms, however, we had none in our room... we had to go to the lobby to access the WiFi. other aspect was with the Shower which was clogged on the first day... the Hotel staff however did promptly send a person and did get it fixed.. On a side note, we did take a taxi to get to the hotel from the airport ($35) and on the way back (Euro 35... $47)... all other times we used the bus to go get water and sacks from Simply market inn Grand Case as well as on our Day excursion to Phillipsburg and Maho beach...i highly recommend using the bus and it is very cheap... So to summarize Pros: Location Breakfast Beach chairs/umbrellas Friendly Management on duty Cons: In Room WiFi This was our first trip to St Martin and we loved it there... we would most likely consider this hotel when we visit again...

Take the bus to see St Martin... Saves you on the hassles of a rental car, very convenient, cheap. to get to Dutch side... take the bus to French quarter... and then to Phillipsburg for the shopping... From there you can take the bus to Maho beach which takes you through Simpson Bay... where most of the dining is located.. Reverse to get back...

Excelent

A perfect, quiet place to spend one week, with a nice beach, an inviting beach bar and good French restaurants very close by, a good place to start exploring the island and its surroundings.
