We just spent two weeks at Hotel L'Esplanade and it was splendid. The spectacular sea views, the perfectly manicured property, the kind hotel staff and comfy bed really put this gem over and above just about anywhere else we've stayed on St. Martin/St. Maarten. Pleasantly surprised by what must be the only heated pool on the island and Ti Temple,...

A great place. Quiet, spectacular views, great location and a nice, efficient staff. The hotel is quiet with no restaurant, casino or ballrooms (shows). Great location...walking distance to an array of outstanding restaurants. Very nice pool and yes Allan is a good dude. Very nice staff and cleaning ladies. Rooms have modern kitchens and nice bathrooms. Only negative is that...

Thanks for a REAL good time! Kristin and her staff were super accommodating - we were given amazing personal attention, inclusive of a ride to the Grand Case airport for a day trip to St. Barth's. The heated pool and peaceful surroundings make this a luxury hotel not to be missed. We like Le Petit Hotel because it was on...

We had never been to St. Martin before so we did a fair amount of research about the island and its hotels. We settled on the French side and this wonderful hotel. They think of everything. The rooms are gorgeous; the service is out of this world; and the staff is marvelous. Alaine, one of the bartenders, was very attentive...

After a some what exasperating experience in Martinque with VRBO, we arrived in Saint Martin and checked into the hotel. It was refreshing to be greeted so warmly and remembered by the staff, since it has been four years since our last visit. The reception area is bright and airy with cool scented water and wine available in the evening....

It has taken me over a week to write this review because I feel like writing it means our trip to St. Martin is officially over, and that is devastating. My daughter and I spent 10 magical days at L'Esplanade and we easily could have spent three times that before even beginning to miss home. From the minute you step...

Having just returned home from a week in St. Martin at Hotel L`Esplanade, it seems unfathomable to fall back into the clammy, yet cold embrace of reality. Upon approach, the steep ascension to the hotel grounds is keenly appropriate, as the pathway leading to this heavenly headquarters in paradise is lined with blooming flora, and you'll almost certainly be greeted...

We been fortunate to have stayed at L'Esplanade over a dozen times and with each stay it only gets better. Each year they seem to add just the right extra and continue to make this a true paradise. The management and team are a great example of how to do things exactly the right way for the guest, and they...

L'Esplanade is genuinely a caribbean paradise. I've been to many islands and never seen a place quite like this. It is the perfect balance between sunny seclusion and access to nightlife and local spots. The owners and staff are so knowledgeable and helpful that any travel anxiety will immediately be relieved.

This hotel has it all! It's not too big so it never feels crowded or busy and it's absolutely gorgeous. The rooms are spacious and well designed/decorated. The amenities are wonderful, some of the best coffee I had on the entire island was there. Watching the sunsets from the pool was an added bonus. This will be my go-to location...
