I stayed at La Samanna with my husband for one week. We had a one bedroom suite, with a terrace and a roof top plunge pool. The room was beautiful and spacious, the bed was comfortable, and the cabana and plunge pool were a nice feature. Our room was quiet during our stay.
The staff was incredibly helpful during our stay. One thing which really impressed us was that there was not a fight to get a chaise by the beach or by one of the pools, even though the hotel was busy.
The food at the hotel was mixed. Some of it was good, other items were so-so. We dined at Trellis, the fine dining restaurant, and we thought it was good but not great. On the other hand, the presentation of the food was great, and the setting was unbelievable.
The fitness room is spacious, and has good equipment. We did not use the spa.
The one thing we found strange was that staff never took a drink order by the pool. We would go to the bar and order, and they would bring it to us. This is not a big deal, but is unusual for a hotel of this caliber.
I would stay at La Samanna if I were in St. Martin.
