We stayed at the Sol Hotel for the first week of February on what was our first trip to St Martin. We enjoyed our stay very much. Collette who runs the place is very friendly and helpful and made suggestions for eating and sightseeing. The rooms are a good size with a balcony and a small kitchen. There is wi-fi available but you have to position yourself near the office to get a signal. This is no great hardship as the area overlooks the pool and there are loungers and chairs.

We sometimes had breakfast at Nana's which is a cafe/ takeout nearby. On one evening we ordered a meal from Nana's and ate it on our balcony. This proved to be excellent value. However the mosquitoes seemed to also enjoy feasting on our pale, northern European skin so I would recommend sprays and candles etc. if you want to enjoy your balcony. We took a taxi from the airport when we arrived and had a rental car delivered by Automax the following day. We were able to drop the car off at the airport at the end of our stay. In travelling around the island we did not find anywhere that we would rather have stayed and it was always good to come back to the hotel at the end of each day. It would however be very limiting to stay in Oyster Pond without a car.

We enjoyed the happy hour at the Dinghy Dock Bar and afterwards went to local restaurants and it sometimes felt that we were travelling from the USA to France in the space of a few hundred yards!

We did quite some research about Sint Maarten and small scale hotels and B&B’s on the island. We were looking for an atmospheric place with nice rooms, an attractive pool area, friendly service and if possible an ocean view from our balcony. And all this without paying a fortune. Sol Hotel was exactly what we were looking for and exceeded our expectations! Colette’s warm welcome and advice on activities and restaurants were really great. The location is just stunning and a small supermarket (Epicerie), a lively bar in the harbour (Dinghy Dock Bar) and some restaurant options are all within walking distance. Our room (Comfort room) had a large balcony with small kitchen and offered a bit more privacy because it did not have a direct access / open view to the pool area. We can definitely recommend the Comfort room. See the pictures for the view from our balcony. The room was cleaned every day. The only disadvantages we can think of are: the mosquitoes (but they are everywhere on the island) and that you need a car to go to the nice beaches. The closest beaches are Dawn Beach on the Dutch side, with a rather American atmosphere and Baie Lucas on the French side with a deserted feeling and no facilities. In terms of beaches we really liked Le Galion and Pinel Island. Sol Hotel offers great value for money and we had an excellent time at this small and charming hotel.

We stayed here for 3 days after returning from a 4-day sail from Oyster Pond with some friends. I can't add much to the previous reviews. Collette upgraded us to Room 9 (the "suite"), and we were very happy. The bed was comfortable; the view beautiful; and the service good. The only thing we wished for were comfortable lounge chairs outside on the porch. We enjoyed meals at restaurants recommended by Collette (especially La Frigate, just a 5-minute drive away, and Quai Ouest (walking distance down the hill at the marina). Recommended!

Our friends have 3 boys, so they stayed at La Louisiane across the street (also managed by Collette) and had a very nice 2-bedroom suite with living room. However, their kitchen was not very well outfitted and could use some updating. They also did not have any lounge chairs on the porch.

a lovely small hotel where hospitality and comfort are the key words. For overnight accomodation next to the Oyster Pond Marina it is absolute the best place to be. Thanks to the charming hostess: Colette

My wife and I just spent two wonderful nights (April 12 and 13) at Sol Hotel in Oyster Pond, St. Martin. This is a very charming and typically French yet typically Caribbean small hotel. Just perfect. The views of Oyster Pond and its marina and the surrounding hillsides (especially at night) from our balcony were much better than million dollar views. My wife and I thought to each other, “If you can’t be happy here, you can’t be happy anywhere.” We had a king sized bed in a large room and we had a small kitchen. The shower and bathroom were very nice as well. We did not have a TV which we don’t care about when we travel abroad although there are rooms available with TV if you want that. If you are looking for chocolates on your pillow every night and gold-plated faucets in the bathroom, this is not the place for you. It met our requirements of being affordable, safe, clean and comfortable. In addition, we got a romantic setting in beautiful surroundings. We could not have asked for more, nor did we want more. Collette, the manager, could not have been more helpful and accommodating to us. She was willing to do everything she could to help us have a pleasant stay and she did. There are several nice restaurants and art galleries within close walking distance to this hotel. We were pleasantly surprised by the quality of food and live entertainment we had at Captain Oliver’s Resort and Marina just down the hill from Sol Hotel. We will definitely be spending several nights here next year when we return.
