Thank you for your reply. That is gross...I guess I will have to bring some baggies and rubber gloves to pick up...yuck. Do you know if they have lounge chairs in front of la california? We are staying in the two bedroom. Wow, barbados sounds nice. What activities do you recommend in St. Martin? Thanks again!

Hi Mary:

Depends on what you like. To me, vacation is all about the beach, the water and relaxing. Then, at the end of the day, I like to have a great dinner: The food is very good at La California, but the French Caribbean being over priced, dinner for one can amount to $50.00, including drinks and tip.

La BRASSERIE is serving good french food and is more affordable: Damien is great.

I would not trust what we call the lolos: I used to be a food service manager and what I see when passing by wouldn't make me want to eat there.

If you like night life, the PUB, above the Brasserie is the place to go.

Otherwise, you might want to go to different beaches like Orient Bay, Anse Marcel...etc.

Beware of the casinos on the Dutch side: Crime is veeery high and the police doesn't give a darn. Guess you heard what happened to the three CBS guys last month.

It wasn't an easy decision for me to decide not to come back to St. Martin -even though I am working in Washington, D.C., I am from the Caribbean-, but it comes to a point when enough is enough.

If you have a two bedroom, I hope it's on the beach side, NOT the village side which is very noisy.

You wouldn't believe how beautiful the beaches are in Barbados. They don't get much hurricanes so the beaches aren't being damaged like St. Martin.

As much as I love the French Caribbean, I have to be realistic: It's way over rated and totally over priced.

Have not stayed at this particular hotel or their beach, but I must say I have never heard of or seen that on any of the beaches we have frequented.
