This was the perfect boutique hotel! I did a lot of research and realized the week we booked to visit St. Martin was their "low season". Although many things were closed we were still able to make the most of our long weekend in St. Martin (Friday - Wednesday). We arrived in the evening unfortunately (we were looking forward to landing in St. Martin during the day), but Henry was there to greet us. He was wonderful about helping us carry our bags - we had room 10 which is the best room with a view - and showed us the amenities of our room. If you like a quaint, quiet hotel that is walking distance to many wonderful restaurants, this is the place to stay! We walked to Piazza Pascals where we ate at two nights in a row, Ocean 82, and the Lolo to have what the locals eat. Every morning we woke up to fresh croissants, danishes, juice, milk, fruit, quiche, bread, butter, jellies and EXPRESSO! The snorkeling out the back door is fantastic which we did everyday after breakfast before heading out to explore the island. After looking at the other hotels in the area, I don't think you could do any better. There is no pool or fitness center, but who needs it when you have the ocean and can walk? When walking, the area can seem a bit seedy, but we were never bothered by anyone, in fact they were most helpful! After seeing the various hotels in the area, when we come back, we would stay here again!
