My wife and I stayed at L'Esplanade for the first time during the last week of April (Apr 24th to May 1st in suite 10) and really had an excellent stay. Not only was this a GREAT boutique hotel but it was WAY better than any other place we’ve previously stayed on the island (3 times at the Esmerelda and once at a rented villa in Mont Vernon). We booked the oversized loft which was really nice and spacious with a kitchen, living room, ½ a bathroom, and large terrace downstairs and a sizable bedroom, full bathroom, and a smaller terrace upstairs. The loft setup and accompanying high ceiling layout made it feel even roomier. The room was very clean with simple, yet tasteful furnishings. The king sized bed was very comfortable; the pillows were a little soft for our taste but not a big deal. The views from the terraces which face west toward Grand Case Beach were amazing, particularly at sunset. We had two TV's (one downstairs and one upstairs), and although we only watched TV once, we were surprised by the number of premium American cable channels they offered (enabled us to watch a replay of Game of Thrones on Monday night after dinner!) They have a small pool which is in a nice garden-style setting a few steps down from the lobby of the hotel. There is also a pool bar there, and although we had heard great things about the bartender, Alain, we did not have drinks there. The other staff, particularly Stephanie, was very accommodating, friendly and helpful. Upon our arrival, the refrigerator had a few complimentary sodas, waters and beers which was a nice touch. The cleaning crew did a nice job every day. They also have a little happy hour every evening in the lobby (complimentary wine).The reason we decided to stay in Grand Case this year was the easy access to the restaurants in town which are the best on the island. It’s a short 5-10 walk down a well-lit path to “restaurant row” in Grand Case. They also offer a golf cart service to the town if you desire but I thought the walk was very pleasant. Also, the location in Grand Case allowed us easy access to other parts of the island including a 5 minute drive to Palm Beach (our preferred spot on Orient Beach). I can’t say enough good things about our stay here; the location, room, and staff were great. Highly recommended. We will definitely be back.
