We just returned from 8 lovely days at L'Esplanade. It is a very nice location overlooking the sea. The staff is accommodating and nice. There is a pool and a lovely little outdoor bar where we ate lunch our first day. It was a perfect meal of tuna and salad made right in front of us. Daily, we traveled to the nearby beaches as L'Esplanade does not have its own beach. This worked well for our family (our kids are 16 and 19) - our favorite beaches were Le Galion, Pinel Island (get the first boat out or you won't get a seat!) and Baie Rouge. The restaurants in Grand Case are splendid, and prior to arriving, the staff at L'Esplanade sent recommendations and made reservations for us (Le Pressoir, La Villa, Sol & Luna and Ti Bouchon - all great). The evenings we did not eat out, we cooked dinner ourselves in our kitchen (after buying ingredients at Bacchus and Simply - both markets that are 3 minutes by car. We stayed in the villa at L'Esplanade which is really wonderful, but not for families with small kids. It is really a spot for 3 couples or families with older kids as the villa is on different levels and there is a private pool that is not necessarily for little folks to play Marco Polo in. We would stay here again. It was private, clean, friendly and beautiful.
