“nice place to stay on French side”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 September 2013

Internet access was down in the check in area. We got there late so the office was closed, but the security guard had our paperwork and keys, so we were relieved. Ask for the lagoon view so you get to over look the lagoon and quiet pool. It was a drive to the beaches and the traffic is horrible in St. Martin, but you get used to it. I had to tell them that the Internet said I get free use of snorkels and fins. Emanual (woman) said gruffly, I don't need proof of it when she looked at me strangely so I offered to show her on the website for the hotel. I probably would find a different place to stay if I went back, but we saw all we needed to see.

This review is NOT for our place.

You did NOT stay at FLAMBOYANT BEACH VILLAS. Perhaps you stayed at Flamboyant Hotel in Bay Nettle.

We, FLAMBOYANT BEACH VILLAS, are in Grand Case directly on the Grand Case Beach.

We have no lagoon view at all but magnificant beach view. And our guests do not need to drive to the beach as we have direct beach access.

Don't need to make a long story short. Simply avoid this side and the French side of the island in general. Worst customer service and just completely ignorant people. Booked 2 rooms. Checked us into the first room which was still dirty. Both rooms had the wrong bedding setup that we paid for. Even the cleaned rooms were disgusting. Free wifi in lobby worked half the time. Free non motorized water activities were not free. Booked scuba diving adventure and the instructor never showed up day of. Safe was broken. Enough hot water in the shower to wash a small bug. Speaking of bugs found several cockroaches in the bathroom. To make that worst I wish I was kidding when I say there was a crab the size of a softball in the bathroom the one night that when it saw us ran into a crack and behind the tub. Sliding glass door to the outdoor deck/kitchen (if you could call it a kitchen) was so hard to open it took 2 grown men to slide it open using all their strength. Once you did get out to the deck for whatever reason the idiot who designed the place thought that putting the ventilation unit right above the stove on the deck so when you thought you could sit outside at night and get a cool breeze you instead got a 90+ degree breeze blowing straight at you. I will be contacting my credit card company and disputing the charges as paying for a stay there was completely unacceptable. And I doubt we got stuck in a bad room judging by all the other reviews I have read

we really enjoyed our stay, the location is convenient to marigot, the airport, and many beaches. The hotel had a fantastic breakfast with our favorite French croissant and pain au chocolat, and French bread. The service was great. We had a very nice time and would return. There is a dive shop onn site that took us to the best dive site. We saw nurse sharks, a reef shark, turtles, eels, stingrays, lobsters, and huge fish.

This is a fine hotel perfectly located. Rooms were very clean. We were hardly ever in the room as the pool area is a great place to relax. Restaurant located on premises made some very good meals. Beach bartenders were quick and witty. Located on the bay not the ocean was only setback.

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!
