We stayed at Le' Petit a few years ago which is the sister hotel to Le'Esplanade. While Le' Petit doesn't have a pool (you can use the one at Le'Esplanade) it is on the beach. It was wonderful! I've been to SXM numerous times and that hotel has a lot of charm. I'd say the same for Le Esplanade. From what I hear La Samana is in need of some repairs and if you don't get a newly refurb room then your kind of out of luck.
And I agree with the above 2 posters. L'Esplanade was where my nephew honeymooned and the staff there couldn't do enough for them. As was stated, it's not on a beach and overlooks Grand Case so the views are wonderful, especially at sunset but the place has a lovely pool with bar and you have a plethera of restaurants to walk down to in the evening. During the day, if you want to beach it, rent a car and drive to any of the beaches around the island which is what almost everyone does anyway.
Thank you all very much! It sounds like Hotel L'Esplanade may be our choice. I have one more question, however. If we rent a car for the 3 days we are in St. Martin but then plan on taking a ferry to Anguilla.....does anyone know if we can rent the car at the airport and drop it off at the ferry or do we have to return the car to the airport and take a taxi to the ferry?
