“Worth every penny”
Reviewed 2 April 2013

Stayed here for two nights in the lagoon-facing suite room. The view from the room was fantastic- although the room itself was a bit dated, but as they were clean. Well-equipped kitchen was a plus. The reception staff was very friendly. No hotel services but you will get everything you'll need for the stay. Big supermarket is only a minute's walk away. Water activity desk's price was reasonable and services were fantastic. Although there are many more savvy spots around the island, but in terms of value for money, definitely recommend.

We have been there for 7 nights. The hotel is located on the French side. I was afraid with the comments I read on Internet and even the woman who sat close to me on the plane seemed to tell me I was doing a mistake by choosing this hotel. I was happy when I saw a clean room, a garden which surrounded the hotel. The beach is beautiful, but you cannot swim there because the hotel in on the lagoon. But you can rent for free a pedal boat. You just have to walk for some minutes to get a beach. You have two nice swimming pools. As we were away during the day, we discovered other beaches of Saint-Martin. It is very pleasant to take breakfast in the restaurant close to the beach. The staff was pleasant. In the future, I will be very careful by reading comment on the Internet. Of course, if you go there, you must like the French culture, but I found the local people very original and funny.

Room Tip: We had a quiet room close to the parking. I did not ask for another one, because we enjoyed the fact...

We have been going to this hotel for five years! We love the location, which is on the French Side!

Just a few steps to the French grocery for bread and cheese!

When you contact the hotel for a reservation you can also reserve a car. The car company will pick you up at the airport and drive you to the hotel..then you are on your own!

Room Tip: Ask for a room with a view of the lagoon!

We luckily just stayed for 2 nights so it didn't matter that much that room cleaning was only to be had at extra charge (having paid more than 100 euros per night i found that quite scandalous anyway). As well it didn't matter that the furniture was old and the appliances a bit run down. However to find a broken shower head (and broken to a point where it is impossible that the previous guest didn't complain about it) when you come from your flight is quite a downer.. In the morning we found our tooth brushes infested with ants... And the next day the toilet flush wouldn't work anymore... And upon departure you have to strip yourself the bed linen off, empty the trash and clean up generally. They will come up to control if you'd done it properly otherwise a fee applies!
Needless to say that the air conditioning would only make a lot of noise but no cooling.
When we stated all these facts to the lady in her stuffy office that served as reception we wouldn't even hear a sorry just a 'well you really had no luck...'.
Luckily the beautiful island and the nice people everywhere (except at the Flamboyant that is) still made the trip a very nice experience.
Just stay away from that place and you will be good.

While this hotel is run-down and could use a bit of cleaning and fixing, what really turned us off what the completely unwelcoming un-staffed front desk...with a pathetic little sign guiding you to a side office. This was our first glance into what was ahead. Check-in included the bare minimum information about the facility, but clear warning about charging 50 Euros for not washing your dishes and cleaning the kitchen. Even though website states there are all sorts of water sports available, when we asked about them we were sent to a little shack where the staff pointed to the Lagoon and did not offer anything else.

We would not recommend this hotel!

As a repeat visitor to This hotel i cannot say enough good things about the friendly and efficient staff. although the hotel has been changing to more of a Residence type of Occupancy it is still very well maintained and is exceptionally clean and Inviting.there have been some upgrades done to the rooms that are very nice. We on many nights are out quite late and are very pleased that security on the hotel grounds is quite good as there always seems to be someone patrolling no matter what hour of the night.This hotel has always been a great value for your dollars it is very conviently located between Marigot the french capitol and the Maho Area on the dutch side which has Casinos and entertainment, Baie Rouge Beach and Cupecoy beach are close by and are Beautiful Beaches.

Room Tip: The Lagoon view rooms are my choice as they are quite pleasant to have happy hour coctails after a d...
