This was our 5th time to St Marten but our first time at L 'Hoste. I was very impressed when we first got there the staff was very friendly and welcoming.
Our room was big, clean and we had a partial view of the ocean.. we were also upgraded when we arrived. Our room was steps to the beach and breakfast was served right on the beach.
The breakfast they serve was all you really needed, French bread, croissants, fruit, cereal, yogurt and coffee. If you feel like having more for breakfast there is lots to choose from on the menu for a nominal fee.
You can also get a few things at the store in the village for lunches and snacks and keep them in your room. We always went to the Village for dinner and were never disappointed, the food is wonderful.
The pool was great not too busy and it was always clean with plenty of lounge chairs there and on the beach.
There is nothing like being right on Orient Beach.. We stayed other places on the island but we always drove to Orient Beach so we decided to try a hotel there!
We didn't rent a car this time and just took taxis (John was our taxi driver we just kept his card and called when we wanted to go somewhere) there is also shuttles offered by the hotel for Mardi Gras, Phillipsburg and Marigot.
Talking to different couples at the resort we learned that most have come back to L Hoste several times year after year.
L' Hoste is not a Hilton so if you want frills and turn down service this isn't for you but if you want an affordable holiday on the most beautiful island in the carribean then this hotel gives you that. I can say that I am somewhat of a hotel snob but we were so happy that we decided to stay at L'Hoste.
We would definitely return to L'Hoste when we visit St Martin again!

My husband and I have stayed there 7 times....The rooms are basic but clean. The staff is wonderful and Continental Breakfast steps from the Beach cannot be beat. Location, location, location on one of the most Beautiful beaches on the Island. The lunch served at their restaurant La Playa has always been perfect. There is a lovely pool to cool off in at the end of our day and the new lounge chairs on the beach are very comfortable. Of course, many wonderful gourmet restaurants to choose from on this lovely beach. Will not disappoint.

Room Tip: We enjoy staying on the 2nd Floor so we don't have to worry about locking the sliding glass door. I feel it is very safe...but...it still is a 'foreign country'.

L'Hoste is right on the water in Orient Bay even though there are no ocean view rooms. The staff is very friendly and helpful. It looks like there have some recent renovations as our guest room was nicely done, but the bathroom was very dated. Nicely equipped with a fridge and small stovetop to cook on as well as a safe. At checkin they give out coupons for free glasses of wine in nearby restaurants and we took full advantage of that and found the restaurants to be excellent. It was also nice to jump in the pool after a hot day on the beach. A quick walk to La Playa Beach Bar and the free beach chairs made our trip here great. The only downside was the very loud partying at one of the nearby beach bars late into the night as it made it hard to sleep.

This was our 4th stay at the l'Hoste Hotel on Orient Beach. We are always very happy when we stay there. The staff is like family. We always return to find other travelers who have returned there for their umteenth visit. The hotel is located on the beautiful Orient beach. Blue skies and Bluer waters serve as the canvas for this most relaxing place to stay. It is situated on the beach, and also has a pool are for relaxing.For an additional treat, I highly recommend a massage from their spa. Ask for Freddie or Fabienne!

Breakfast is included with the room rates. We have already booked our next trip!

I loved the L'Host hotel where I stayed on a recent trip to St. Martin. The property has a perfect location in the middle of Orient Beach. The rooms are spacious and offer everything you would need including a small fridge and a microwave. The property is close to all the activities and restaurants on Orient Beach. A great continental breakfast is included at La Playa and this includes fruit, cereal and great breakfast breads and yogurt. What a great way to wake up in the morning! Chairs and beach umbrellas are provided for guests at La Playa during the day. The staff was very friendly and helpful. L'Host offers a great value in a super location!
