Staying at L'Esplande is always a treat. Have been here six times and love out stay every time. Everyone is helpful and friendly. Especially enjoyed the new protocol for buffet breakfast as it gives everyone a chance to mingle and get to know one another. also enjoyed the manager's reception on Saturdays. Great way to meet others that are staying at the hotel.
Fabulous trip. I felt comfortable and well taken care my entire five day trip. I got great sleep in the room's lucious king size bed. The staff was attentive and helpful. The hotel rooms were huge and beautifully furnished. (I was disappointed leaving and returning to my Brooklyn apartment). I also thought that the hotel was perfectly located - steps away from fabulous restaurants and Grand Case Beach but also not far from many other beaches (if you rent a car). 10/10 - we'll be back!
There are two things that were perfect on this trip, staying at Hotel L 'Esplanade (choice of boutique vs All Inclusive) and staying on the French side of the island. I am waiting to go back to this place on my next trip, we fell in love with this place so much that I do not want to look at any other option. The resort was so homely, clean, and just perfect. I cannot thank enough to everyone who helped me plan the trip, made reservations, and decorated my room romantically for our 10th year anniversary. I am super surprised by the friendliness and hospitality and everyone with always a smile. This is a super romantic boutique resort and recommend anyone to stay here who want a relaxing vacation with everything taken care of for you! The location is awesome because its walking distance to some of the best restaurants on the island and 5 minutes away from local shops and French grocery store.…
The best hotel in St Martin! We’ve been coming here for over 15 years and always enjoy it. Staff is very friendly and personable and actually remember you from year to year. The pool is small but never crowded and you can walk to the best restaurants in St Martin. It truly is a view above the rest!
Lovely boutique nestled on hills overlooking Grand Case. Personal service, responsive staff. Small-ish but uncrowded pool. Continental breakfast comprises outstanding breads and pastery -- it's a French island after all.
This is a wonderful property in Grand Case. The rooms are comfortable with gorgeous views and well equipped kitchens. The grounds are beautifully landscaped. An oleander lined path leads you to the Blvd Grand Case and wonderful restaurants. A quiet sandy beach (le petit plage) is less than a five minute walk. Staff is very friendly. Go !
my wife and I have returned to this property over and over again over the past decade (we just returns from #6, our first with our son). wonderful rooms, friendly and helpful service, wonderful views, very convenient location to both the best beaches and best restaurants on the island
What a beautiful hotel. I think it’s one of the best in Saint Martin. The facility and services were excellent. All the staff were friendly and helpful. I loved the convenient location close to all of the great restaurants in Grande Case.
Even better the second time around My wife and I enjoyed a wonderful week early in 2022 in St. Martin at the L’Esplanade, enjoying the hotel, the Grand Case restaurants, and various nearby beaches. We decided to return, but with the small nagging concern of whether the sequel could be as good. Well, happy to report a resounding yes. The hotel remains immaculate, the service delightful, and the ambiance serene. What I wrote last year still applies, so that is pasted below. But I want to add one story that may help explain what makes L’Esplanade so special and stress-free (and we are not the only ones, many of the other guests also had been to the hotel before): The hotel does not cater to business meetings. But work did intrude, and I unexpectedly received several documents that I needed to have printed so I could sign, scan and return them for a time-sensitive transaction. Without a fuss, and with smiles all-around, the hotel staff helped me with all of this in a manner faster and more efficiently than in the typical upscale hotel business center. What I expected to be a hassle instead has become another story to tell about how this property and its team continually makes being here wonderful. (And I had my executed documents completed well before those of the rest of my far-flung colleagues). If you want to start each day with a smile and end it the same way, head to the L’Esplanade. A week to repeat The property is beautiful and perfectly maintained, plenty of space at the pool, Frank who works at the pool is a wonderful bartender in all of the best ways, the breakfast, while simple is a great start to the day, the rooms spacious, balconies are comfortable and private, all of the staff were great, we were given endless help with arranging and then rearranging dinner and other plans that got us where we wanted to eat when we wanted to eat, and for us the location was perfect. We hope to return soon. Only suggestion is we had a rental car and recommend it. Driving is easy, lots of spots worth visiting during the day, and I hate to admit we drove to the Grand Case restaurants at night as parking was easy either in the free lot for the town or a smaller, free lot that partnered with several of the restaurants we were eating at. …
"If you're looking for a luxurious getaway with a side of canine companionship, look no further than Hotel L'Esplanade in St. Martin. The rooms are top-notch, the views are breathtaking, and the staff is friendly and attentive. The food and drink selection is impressive and the pool is the perfect spot to relax and soak up the sun. Plus, the location is ideal for those looking to indulge in some delicious restaurants. And let's not forget about the added bonus of being able to use the amenities at the sister hotel, Le Petit. The beach there is fantastic and the kayaks are a blast. But the real stars of the show are the hotel dogs, Jacque and Stout. Not only are they adorable, but Jacque even followed my wife into town and walked back with her. It's like having your own personal tour guide! Overall, Hotel L'Esplanade is paws-itively perfect."…
