Les balcons is a charming place to stay, but as the owners will tell you - it's not a hotel. Each room has a lovely balcony that overlooks Oyster Bay, one of the most picturesque locations on the island and definitely one of the quietest. Highlights include: gorgeous views onto the marina, spacious balcony with nice furniture and grill, well-stocked kitchen (!), pretty bed and interior.
The managers are very friendly and accommodating to requests, but that's just the thing - you have to request a lot compared to any other hotel. In the 3 days we stayed, no one changed our linens once. On Friday morning they were around to help us make calls and get information, but after that we never saw any staff until checking out on Monday. The most ridiculous was only receiving one roll of toilet paper - of course they gave us another when we asked, but something like that should never have been an issue in such a nice place.
Otherwise: AC worked well, good hot showers, books and games available. If you're okay cleaning up after yourself every day (or even if you expect it in advance), it's a lovely place. I don't think there is much on St. Martin that will match it for charm and quiet.
