Hotel La Plantation

4.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

This hotel is so quiet and quaint! We've been there at least 6 times and every time we arrive, it is like coming home!

This was our sixth year staying at La Plantation. We very much like the peaceful setting and convenience to Orient Beach, a short walk away, and the closeness of Grand Case for wonderful dinner experiences. The day always starts with a nice breakfast and coffee on the terrace by the pool, then off to one of St. Martin's beautiful beaches. We have found the rooms to be comfortable and the deck a great place to relax when one has had enough sun. We will be back next year!

Great spot on a great island. They aren't on the beach, but I wasn't interested in paying twice as much to be beachside. 5 min walk from Orient Beach. The 'studio' I had was huge with partitioned bedroom, and combo living room/kitchen. Friendly staff. Even the security guard took the time to golf cart me to my room & explain everything when I checked in at 11pm.

Excellent Breakfast (food), a little slow/lazy service. The facilities are well kept and the villa/room was beautiful with great balcony that provided a great view of the beach and the surroundings. Walking distance of everything beach, small stores and restaurants.

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!

La Plantation offers great food at their restaurant, the environment is surrounded by plants. An ideal hotel for relaxing.

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.

Awesome place! Everything was perfect! .........................................................................................................................................................................................................

We love this hotel. The rooms, staff, service, location and amenities always make us want to return. We will be back!

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.

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!

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.

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.

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!!!

For the past 15 years we have spent a week at Orient Beach at numerous hotels right off the beach. While they were nice, they did not compare to Hotel La Plantation. La Plantation is a 5 minute walk from the beach but the hotel was worth the additional walking distance. The rooms were large and well laid out. They included a modern kitchenette, including a refrigerator, cooktop, stainless steel sink, and granite countertop. There were plenty of cooking utensils and dining ware. Because it is at a higher elevation, the views were good from the lower level rooms and fantastic from the upper level room. All rooms had huge terraces to appreciate the wonderful views. The entire hotel was spread out so you had privacy and did not feel that you were on top of you neighbor's apartment. While other hotels advertise free breakfasts, they offer only the basics and charge additional for anything more. The breakfast buffet at La Plantation however, was quite generous and could fill you up until dinner time. The staff at La Plantation was always very friendly and always willing to help in which ever way they could. We are looking forward to return this hotel for our future visits to Saint Martin.

The hotel was fine, comfortable, clean room. My biggest complaint was the noise. The pool is lovely and refreshing but the music was a bit much. Piped in, loud, American hit music. It was not charming and far from relaxing. Being at the pool and restaurant was not a pleasant experience. Also, be warned, the beach area is the same; loud music blaring up and down the beach. The breakfast buffet is the same every day. Not so great, but it was certainly sufficient. I probably won't return.

Room was great. and breakfast was the same every morning but its included so it worked.

This was our 3rd time staying at La Plantation. The staff is super friendly and helpful, the free breakfast is fantastic and the room and terrace are spacious and comfortable. We have been to st. Martin 13 times now, and would not hesitate to book there again. One tip: Turn off the air conditioner before showering or you will blow a fuse. Daniella at the front desk is a wonderful person.

this hotel should be on everyones getaway list. The location is lovely and quiet. The famous Orient Bay is 5 minutes away. The bar and restaraunt is great and the staff is helpful and smiling.

We could walk to the beach,several places to eat nearby as well as the hotel. Breakfast was fresh and plentiful each morning.This was our 2nd time and we will be back.
