Accolades from all the other reviews ring true....here is a little different spin.. First, if you have never been to the Island you have to know that you are not going to Maui or Florida where everything is manicured and smooth roads. There is still quite a bit of damage from the hurricane several years ago, there is grafitti on...

I really can't say anything all of the other reviewers haven't already said. This is really a well-managed hotel. Our room was perfect and clean and the level of service from the staff was great. I mentioned that it was my husband's birthday in our reservation and they had a bottle of champagne waiting. The view from the balcony was...

We heard great things about this hotel from a relative and decided to see for ourselves. We rented a car through the hotel and they offer free transfers to and from the airport. The hotel is stunning and not overly pretentious. It has a nice, laid back vibe. The staff is very helpful and great with giving directions and getting...

We just returned from a week stay at L'Esplanade and it was fabulous as always. We have going to St Martin for 20 years and have stayed at L'Esplanade or Le Petit hotels annually for the last 15 years. Normally we go in July but this year decided to visit in March to see friends who vacation in the US...

We stayed at L’Esplanade for three nights during our honeymoon in January 2011. It is hard to fault this place – lovely location, nice staff, free honeymoon champagne on arrival and I have to vigorously disagree with the comments of an earlier review about the hilly steps down to Grand Case and the beach being a problem. After reading that...

I recently stayed at Hotel L'Espande on two separate trips this month (with a short break at Cap Juluca on Anguilla). The first time for a week. The hotel is beautiful, clean, with wonderful views and some of the nicest staff I've met at any establishment in the world. The rooms were spacious and comfortable. They also had power receptacle...

My husband and had our first stay at L'Esplanade for our honeymoon. Everything from the moment we arrived until the moment we left was absolutely perfect. When we were greeted with a congratulatory bottle of champagne as we arrived in our room, we knew our every need would be taken care of. We were not disappointed! The staff is the...

This was our 3rd visit to L'Esplanade, but it was our first time during the high winter season. The staff are just as friendly when the hotel is full as when it is not. They are always helpful and interested in their visitors. Views from the rooms and public areas are spectacular. The pool and pool bar are great for...

The Hotel L'Esplanade was everything we could have wished for. This hotel is immaculately clean, the staff is extremely friendly and helpful ( thank you Myra!), the rooms are romantic and inviting and the views are spectacular! We stayed in a deluxe studio on the garden level with a very private balcony. We loved the rich wood tones of the...

This was our 5th time at the hotel. If we didn't live so far away, we would visit several times a year. The most important feature of this hotel is the warm, gracious and welcoming service. To us, it feels like a homecoming when we visit each year. And its location, just up a hill from the spectacular restaurants of...
