This place was an amazing little hideaway located on Grand-Case Beach on French side on Saint Martin. While I did not stay here I spent a few days relaxing on their deck chairs in the ocean sipping wine, listening to their chilled music and soaking up the sun! Staff were very friendly and can make some amazing cocktails. Cheese platters were delicious! Highly recommend just popping in for a wine or two if you aren't actually staying

We stayed here for just one night (Friday) and wished we stayed longer. This is the cutest hotel! Only 7 rooms. We stayed in room 2 which was on the ground level right by the street but it was still very quiet as the town doesn't have much nightlife. The hotel locks up at night but guests have their own key so we never felt unsafe. We hung out on the beach loungers all day and enjoyed the water, beach, food, and drinks. Beach service was provided. Drinks were larger than average size and very reasonable price. We ordered grilled paninis for lunch and were a bit disappointed as they only had one small slice of meat in them but were still very tasty. We will stay here again!

As we drove from the airport, we were very happy that we had decided to stay at Grand Case - the Dutch side of Saant Marteen seems to be all surface glitlz. We were fascinated to see how the Love Hotel with its somewhat bizarre name would turn out. We could not have been happier. The welcome was very friendly and the room, while not glitzy hade everything one needed with nice views from the side of the hotel over the beach. The bar was very friendly and we were able to wind down from our flight from Amsterdam. We really enjoyed Grand Case with its great choice of restaurants. We would definitely stay again at the Love Hotel. For photos and an additional view see my wife's blog (http://gallivantingisadora.blogspot.fr/2013/03/our-first-night-in-caribbean-grand-case.html)

After checking out some of the much more expensive options, and being wary that some of the small places right on the beach might be, well, kind of crummy, I crossed my fingers and went with LOVE. My wife and I stayed here for a week (7 days) and had a wonderful time. As simple as the rooms are (no TV or phone), it absolutely met our needs. The place is charming, our hosts William and Muriel were incredibly nice and very helpful, and if you're on the second level, there are practically no mosquitoes - unlike the first-floor room in another place the last time we visited Grand Case. We were in room 6, which has a side-view of the beach and water. It was also quiet, and there's a very nice terrace where we ate outside for breakfast and just looked at the waves. The low-key bar downstairs is also great, easy to grab a beer, sit on the beach and just relax. I literally couldn't have asked for more! Bottom line, we'd go back any time.

Room Tip: Rooms on the top level likely have less mosquitoes; and have a view of the water via the side terrac...

Very nice little hotel in a great location in GC. Walked to all the great restaurants and beautiful view of the beach. Short drive to Merigot and Orient Beach. Would recommend 2nd floor and RM#7 if you can swing it, little pricey but 2 bedroom with a wonderful balcony overlooking the ocean. Room was very clean and staff very nice. Parking is on the street but was not an issue and felt safe in the area. Did not eat here but had drinks very good and food we soon looked good as well.

Just got back from a seven night vacation at the Love and we could not be happier with the experience. The room is very simple, but very comfortable. We were in room 4, so we were fortunate to have a terrace to enjoy morning coffee and the spectacular view of the water. The beach out front is small, but it was never crowded, always buzzing (at least after 11 am). We had at least four lunches at Love and they were all delicious.

The real magic at love is the people. The staff is nothing but friendly. William and Muriel (the owners) are absolutely full of life and they never failed to greet us with a smile.

Absolutely only complaint about the accommodations is that the water in the room went out a couple of times during the afternoon, but this is certainly out of the Love's control. Fortunately, as William pointed out there is a whole sea at your disposal only a few steps away.

Room Tip: If you're going to have a problem with noise and you will be going to sleep early, don't sta...

We found the Love Hotel to be an attractive, convenient and, for St. Martin, economical hotel that is within walking distance of the Caribbean's best French restaurants and is close to a number of first-rate beaches as well. Our room, number 7, has a panoramic view of the Grand Case beach that would cost many times more in other hotels. Although the bedroom is above a barroom, the management succeeded in completely sealing off number 7 from the smoke and conviviality of the drinking room below. Even the outdoor deck, where we watched the sun set each evening, was undisturbed. The waves generate a pleasing din in any case. There is no TV in the room, but we brought some DVDs and watched on our laptop after dinner. We found the owners to be helpful, pleasant and comfortable speaking English. Unfortunately, the French do not go in for breakfast. We found, however, that the nearby Loterie Farm serves what could be regarded as brunch beginning at 11:30 a.m.; we had a large plate of tropical fruits and another plate with a fine selection of cheeses each day.
