We went in August, so the prices were moderate and I thought overall the value was quite good. We started our St. Martin adventure on the Dutch side, then went up to Orient Bay Hotel for a night (stay away!) and then finally came to the home stretch for 4 nights at Sol e Luna.
While it is not on the beach, it is very peaceful here. The rooms are clean, our porch was great, the whole hotel was very quiet this time of year and it seemed like we had the pool to ourselves all except one time when we met another nice couple.
We're pretty thrifty travelers and overall if you like the smaller, bed & breakfast type hotels you should thoroughly enjoy the peace and sanctity (although this did not offer breakfast, but it did offer the homely feel - previously it was the home of the current owner - they also own the great restaurant down below). Not sure what other travelers were talking about airplanes. The whole island is very tiny and as there are two larger airports planes may be heard from nearly anywhere - we barely noticed.

For lunch they reinvent daily "La Table du Midi" (choice of a starter, main course and dessert) and offer dinner according to the menu, always taking care to sublimate the freshness of our products.
