Orient !! - There are quite a few restaurants and bars in Orient Village. Safari Grill (French), Ti Chi (Asian), Le Piment (pizza, casual dining), Cote Plage (French),Little Itale (pasta) Across the street is Paris Texas, a Tex/Mex place w/bar, and Tap 5 for pizza and other light meals. Le Cadre serves mostly tapas. Additionally right outside Orient complex on the main road is Rancho Del Sol for dinner and drinks.

In the Orient complex is also Cafe Plantation, and L'Astroble at the Esmeralda resort. They are both very good and more upscale.

Several beach bars have parties at night during high season - Waikiki, Budha Bar at Bikini, Kontiki and Boo Boo Jams, Aloha for lunch. Pedros for BBQ and more..

There are no accommodations directly on Orient beach The hotels are nearest, just steps off.

Nettle Bay beach is far from the best, there are excellent beaches minutes away by auto and dining is less than on Orient or in Grand Case.

Many more choices are on the Dutch side. These would be timeshare apartments.

You may wish to explore the accommodations in this area. Very upscale but you will need a vehicle to get around to restaurants, nightlife, shopping, etc.

If it's a villa that you want, check out Terres Basse. Upscale. They are not called houses in the Caribbean, they are referred to as "villas".
