When we found out our trip to Grenada after SXM had to be cancelled..at first we were a bit down as we would have loved to show Grenada what OG is all about! However, when we found out we'd be staying the remainder of our trip at the L'Esplanade..suddenly our frowns had turned upside down. After all, on the same...

My girlfriend and I decided to take our first Caribbean trip this August. We went to St.Martin from Thursday 8/13 - 8/17. After reading rave reviews here on TripAdvisor we selected Hotel L'Esplande as our hotel and got a nice off-seaon rate in the very low 200's per night for a studio with king bed and kitchenette and ocean view...

Stayed here for our honeymoon in June. Such a nice hotel! The staff were very helpful and responsive. We had a deluxe loft. Our room was comfortable, spacious and immaculately clean with a balcony that had a wonderful view of the ocean. We watched the sun set over the sail boats in the water every night. We didnt want to...

This was our first trip to St. Martin and happened upon this hotel - primarily because we wanted to stay on the French side - and we like the look of the photos from their website. First thing -- their photos are accurate -- it is a very well kept hotel - with beautiful views and a small, but comfortable...

Our trip to St. Martin was wonderful! Hotel L'Esplanade is everything we had read and more. It is small, has beautiful rooms, wonderful views and beautiful grounds. I think the reason they provide such excellent service is because they are small and concentrate on trying to anticipate your every need. This is what it is all about. They appreciate you...

We really enjoyed our time at L'Esplanade although I have to say that we didn't actually spend much time there as most of our time was spent on the beaches (and this hotel is not on the beach). Pros: 10 minute walk to excellent restaurants in Grand Case; 5 minute walk to Petit Plage beach in Grand Case Beach Club;...

You get a feel for just how great this place is when you start emailing the staff. Prompt and courteous response with answers and suggestions as required. They are located on the French side of the island. That says a lot as we found the Dutch side to be overdeveloped for tourists...especially of the cruise variety. The only thing you...

We stayed at L'Esplanade four nights at the beginning of May 2009. I had read all the good reviews and was very eager to get there. I was truly delighted by the place, it's beautiful, so romantic, perfectly located, well maintained and the service is great. L'Esplanade is a place you won't want to leave!

Although I agree with many of the positive reviews of Hotel Esplanade that describe the hotel as lovely, this property also has a number of drawbacks that are rarely mentioned in reviews. First, in off season (beginning May 1), there is no service at the pool at all. This means that you can not get lunch or even a drink...
