First: beautiful property, and given what the island went through 1.5 years ago impressively gorgeous. Very nice service, good dinner. Overall good experience. My only challenge was a bit of sticker shock at time of billing. I expected to pay X and it was quite a bit

Dear KCalifornian, Thank you very much for your comments and I am very happy to know that you enjoyed the service and food and rate us positively. As for the billing point, after one month of operation, I can say that agree with you and I believe we should you look at a new way of structuring our pricing. Although this has been the practice for years at Belmond La Samanna, I think we have an opportunity to rethink this. Once again, many thanks for your review and we hope to have the pleasure of welcoming you back (and enjoying a revised pricing structure). Warmest regards, Eleonore

Have been spending a magical 5 days at La Samanna and have to go home today. Seriously depressed as I love it here and we have had an incredible vacation. I was nervous to see what the island would be like after suffering through what was undoubtedly the worst storm to ever

This remains an extraordinarily beautiful property and it is wonderful to see that it has been faithfully restored after Irma. The beach remains as it always has been - a little rocky in a few spots but pristine, gorgeous and uncrowded. It is a treat to walk three steps out of

Let me start with a few things to make this small review stand out for those who are wanting to hear about the devastation and the rebuilding of the island of St. Martin/Saint Maarten. Then let me tell you about the experience at La Samanna. There is no way to convey how

Dear Elizatravels19, Thank you very much for your excellent rating and touching header despite the numerous mishaps you experienced during your stay. Aside from construction debris and room service issues, I am most concerned about the broken step at the beach which I will be investigating immediately. I would be most grateful if we could connect further via phone or email at your convenience (eleonore.astier-petin@belmond.com). Once again, your graciousness is extremely appreciated and I look forward to welcoming you back. Warmest regards and very best wishes to you and your family for 2019, Eleonore

Is it all inclusive?
No. But breakfast can be on a European Plan. A La Carte dining at the Beach restaurant is best.

"Please Select Rooms Closer to the Lobby"
"Plunge pool suites are expensive, but worth the money"
"2-bedroom suite is an apartment with living room, kitchen, *outdoor dining and a deck for yourself*. 10 meters from the beach."
"Cliff rooms offer more privacy and remarkable views. Beach rooms more distant from the lobby offer meandering paths though the gardens."
"We enjoy block F. Close to the beach bar and about midway to the main building"
