This is a great hotel, that far exceeded our expectations. The hotel arranged our car rental for us (car rental is an absolute necessity to exploring the island), and a taxi met us free of charge at the airport.
We stayed in a one bedroom suite (free upgrade courtesy of Jonathan) that was absolutely beautiful. Over 1000 square feet, with a breathtaking view of Grand Case Beach. Suite had large bathroom, large bedroom with walk in closet, spacious living room and eating area, and nice kitchen with all necessary amenities (fridge, microwave, stove, pans, plates, etc.). Can't forget the large balcony which was great to sit outside and eat breakfast on to start out the morning.
The hotel staff and service were both great. Jonathan offered us several great tips for dining in Grand Case, while other staff members offered parking tips, directions, set up excursions for us, and so on. Dining options are about a 5-10 minute walk or a 2 minute drive down the street. Do not worry about the lack of direct access to a beach. All beaches on the island are public, and small beach (by Sunset Cafe) is only about 5 minutes down the road.
This hotel is great for a romantic getaway- I would absolutely stay at Hotel L'Esplanade again if I return to the island. After spending time around the island, I am convinced it is in the best location.
