“Vacation in Paradise”
Reviewed 15 October 2013 for a stay in October 2013
1
person found this review helpful

I spent two wonderful weeks at Studio Pinel in October 2013. The place is a paradise on earth and everything I read about it in the internet was true. Someone wrote that Bruno (the owner) is very helpful but not at all intrusive and I believe it to be a very accurate description. We even got a free upgrade for one week for the studio with direct view at the sea!

During our stay we got everything we needed. The studio had fully equiped kitchen and there was even a huge jacuzzi bath just at the beach in front of the studio free for us to use all the time! There were also kayaks that were included in price and this allowed us to visit Ilet Pinel, a small paradise Island with beautiful beach just 10minutes away from Cul de Sac, every day.

I totally recommend this place and I will definitely come back one day myself.

I went to St. Martin with my boyfriend and we booked a studio that was not in front of the sea, but Bruno, the owner gave us an upgrade! We got very happy until we got there.... then we got absolutely AMAZED! The room is incredible, the bed is HUGE and the view is unbelievable! It`s 10ft from the sea! We immediately fell in love with the place!
The owner was very very friendly and kind...
The hotel offers kayaks, and it`s a 20min trip to the pinel island... our best spot in hole st. maarten!

In resume! We have the best time of our life!

“Amazing little paradise!!!”
Reviewed 10 June 2013 for a stay in May 2013

We stayed at the Ilet Pinel studio last month and so happy we did, we plenty enjoyed our stay on the french side of the island and the studio was all that was advertised and more, it was very clean and well maintained. The vue from the studio was amazing, we will be recommending to our friends and will definitely book again when we come back!!!

“25 great days at Studio Pinel !”
Reviewed 25 March 2013 for a stay in January 2013

person found this review helpful

I stayed 25 days at Studio Pinel with my 13 yrs old daughter.
What can I say about the place, about Bruno and Carole (the owners) ?

Let me start saying about Bruno and Carole. They are just lovely. They were always worried with us,wanting to know if everything was ok with us, always ready to help us when necessary.
About the place. Very nice, clean and very nicely decorated.
The Naturelle Studio, in front of the beach, where I stayed my 1st week, was lovely. Taking breakfast looking to the beach, lovely scenery.
Going around with the kaiaque was very nice too.
I can´t say nothing negative about Studio Pinel.
What I always say is that St.Martin, of course staying at Studio Pinel is my place For sure I will return again to that paradise.
The good thing of staying at this Studio is that you have everything you want near to you supermarket, lovely restaurants at Grand Case (gasttronomic place, 10 minutes from Cul de Sac).
Well, I realy don´t have no negative thing to say about these 25 days in St Martin.
If you´re searching for a nice, peaceful place, Studio Pinel is the place.

person found this review helpful

We have been coming to St Martin for over 10 years and this was the most relaxing visit we can remember!Bruno and Carole were incredibly hospitable and welcoming, the apartment was very clean,decorated nicely, and we cooked some meals in the little outdoor kitchen. We had never stayed in Cul de Sac before but the location of Studio Pinel was very convenient, with the natural preserve and ocean right around the corner. It is a short distance to restaurants including Au Grain de Sel for pizza, and Ti Buchon for island cuisine, courtesy of Momo. There is a big grocery nearby (now called Simply) in Hope Estate just down the road
and Grande Case is about 10 minutes away.We enjoyed watching the sunrise and sunset over the water from our patio and the boats heading toward Pinel. Kayaks were available , and we saw plenty of wildlife just outside our door: resident friendly dogs, cats,egrets, sugar birds and donkeys to name a few.We enjoyed a relaxing week and will definitely be back!

“Wow, this was fantastic- we will be back”
Reviewed 21 January 2013 for a stay in January 2013

people found this review helpful

In Jan 2013 we spent one week at this fabulous spot on the French side of St Martin, in the Cul-de-Sac area. The room was exactly as advertised- very clean, very comfortable and quiet and just steps away from the beach. The owner, who lives on sight, was attentive on check-in but not the least bit intrusive. The room was perfect (air conditioning and wifi were much appreciated) and the kitchen was well equipped for whatever cooking we chose to do. There was also a bbq beside the beach that we could have used. We enjoyed the best holiday that we've had in ages.
