La Plantation hotel is a wonderful place to stay, not a typical one building hotel. Rooms are in different villas in a beautifully landscaped property walking distance to Orient Bay beach. Our studio had a small fridge, a functional stove, microwave oven and kitchen dishes. The staff are very nice and kind, Julie, the manager and front desk staff Caline and Daniella. We were not prepared for a 220 V adaptor but Daniella who checked us in lent us a transformer. Caline patiently helped us confirm our flight and airline check-in. The hotel has complimentary pass for use of beach chairs and umbrellas at the beach. Although we already checked out, they let us borrow beach towels for use till we leave for our flight back to US later that day. We’d love to come back soon!

While not on the beach, it was just 5-minute walk until I hit Orient Beach. I passed through a small shopping center on the way, and there are several restaurants on the beach. A good beach towel was provided, as was a card that allow you to sign restaurant meals at three places to your room. Very practical!

My room was very spacious, clean and bright. Comfortable bed and a quiet surrounding made for good sleep quality. I had a veranda with partial sea view. The kitchenette had a microwave, fridge and coffee maker. Reading light at the desk was decent. The safe worked, but could have been place higher for convenience.

Breakfast buffet was included, which was very practical. It was not lavish, but enough for a good start. I had dinner in the hotel's restaurant, and was impressed by their Mahi-Mahi.

Staff were consistently helpful and service-minded. A place to return to!

We spent three nights here. We were late being picked up from the airport due to a misunderstanding, so we were upgraded to a lovely room - very spacious, fully equipped kitchen, airy bedroom with mosquito net, clean spacious bathroom, patio with a theoretical sea view (lush vegetation in the way!) and a nice indoor sitting area with TV.
We ate in the restaurant twice - lovely food and friendly service. Breakfast was all we needed - eggs, pastries, fresh bread, yoghurt, fruit, toast, juice, tea, coffee (fancy machine). Pool was quiet, clean and the hotel was not far from the beach and restaurants. We'd go there again.

People could not be more pleasant and accommodating. Rooms are basic but clean and we did not come here to stay in the room. Walk to 5 beaches and your chair and umbrella are included along with nice large beach towels. . Have lunch at one of the 5 beaches and charge it to your room! The village is close by and includes 4 or 5 very nice restaurants. I cannot explain why people would say anything negative about this place. They will squeeze fresh on for you or make you an omelet if you want something different for an up charge. I would highly recommend this place for its quiet location, affordability, cleanliness and accommodating staff. We definitely will be back!!!!

water pressure was low, then non existent (during height of coronavirus pandemic).. Staff made no effort to place guests in suitable accommodations at other hotels. We reserved mobility accessible room, given 1 at top of 45 degree incline driveway. Advertises airport shuttle but they don't have one. We hired airport shuttle. After taking us to our room, the airport shuttle driver stopped at the office and told the staff we would need assistance and they should not have placed us in a completely unsuitable room. Staff did not tell us we could request golf cart to pick us up and take us around the resort. It was of limited help since it couldn't make it to the top of the hill where our room was, even after its battery was charged. Staff was generally unhelpful on all counts. Beautiful pictures do not tell the story.

This hotel is ideally located withing easy walking distance of Orient Bay beach, restaurants and the Petit Casino mini supermarket and a ten minute drive to the Super U supermarket and gourmet stores on the Hope estate. We have stayed here many times in one of the lower level one bedroom units. 610 had a great view and had been modernised since our last stay. Front desk staff are very pleasant and were patient with my attempts at French. They also helped greatly with our COVID tests we needed to get home. The room was spotlessly cleaned every day. The restaurant (Café Plantation) had been redecorated and we ate there the first night. The food was excellent and service very cheerful but the menu is short and very heavy on ceviche, which is not my cup of tea. We mostly did our own breakfasts, buying baguettes from Good Morning or "L'Express in Hope Estate" and we love cooking some of our own meals. the problem is that the kitchenettes are woefully inadequately equipped for those who like to cook. There were not even any wine glasses when we arrived. They were of course provided on request but we had to buy some equipment, as on the previous visit. That is the only flaw at this delightful extablishment.

Wow…. I have so many nice things to say about this place. We were greeted with warm smiles at every turn. The room was comfortable, clean and tastefully decorated. Breakfast was wonderful, hot and served with a smile. The beach was a short walk from our room with fragrant flowers blooming everywhere. Beach chairs were included at Bikini Beach where we were treated with delicious food and tropical beverages. Yep, I’m comin’ back. Don’t miss this gem.

The view from the balcony was breathtaking. The spacious accommodation were well appreciated and utilized. We cooked in the fully stocked kitchen . I scuba dived , we sunbathed, and evening took a day trip to Anguila for the festival/party on the beach. Having a car is highly recommended and facilitated getting around the island. The staff , the pool and the breakfast were all pleasant and enjoyable . If and when I return to St Martin I’ll definitely stay here again.

Came back this January for a stay on the french side and felt like I was coming back home. The staff at the front desk are more than welcoming and attend to your every need with grace and warmth. The complimentary breakfast poolside is wonderful - the Best coffee machine - such a wondferful way to start the day. There restaurant on-site is very good but there are a multitude of options within walking distance as well.

Love it all. The studio I was in is beautiful, calm and very, very pleasant and nicely decorated.
The breakfast is plentiful and the setting, by the pool, is beautiful. Same for the bar.
Access to the beach is a short walk away, and beach chairs are included in the hotel stay, which is great!
The staff is very welcoming and helpful from the reception to the restaurant, the bar to the cleaning crew.
Well managed boutique hotel that I highly recommend!

Does the hotel provide transportation to and from Juliana airport?
Answer from Paul C
Santa Fe, New Mexico40 contributions119 helpful votes
No. People either rent cars or take a taxi to the hotel. The taxi system is well organized. Exit airport to Taxi stand where dispatchers identify locations (in your case Orient/La Plantation) - airport taxis are generally vans and are most often shared with others of similar destination.

I cannot speak to rates, but we were there in April. Breakfast was included and is a buffet with a good variety. The rooms are not directly on the beach. Rooms are about a two block walk to the beach and are up a hill so that you have a view of the water from your room. There are also other restaurants and bars within walking distance.
