We have been to L'Esplanade three times in the last 7 years and it remains our favourite 'home' in St. Martin. After getting married around the beautiful pool and gardens five years ago, we went back in May with our baby daughter to celebrate. We were received with warm greetings, hugs, sparkling wine and our daughter was treated like a...

We booked the Hotel L'Esplanade based on Tripadvisor reviews and expected much more than we got. I really don't understand the rave reviews, but I have since noted that on their Facebook page whenever they get a mediocre review, they solicit positive reviews from their existing fans, so I now believe we were misled by skewed review submissions. We checked...

My husband and I traveled to St. Martin last week and after doing a ridiculous amount of hotel research decided to stay at Hotel L'Esplanade, mostly because of the fantastic reviews it got on TripAdvisor. All in all, the hotel was fine, not a lot to truly complain about. However, it was also nothing special, which is definitely not what...

I booked this hotel mainly becuase it was so highly reviewed on TripAdvisor. While the hotel was nice, it certainly did not merit the lofty reviews. We were disappointed and wish we would have stayed elsewhere. The main complaint I would have is the lack of amenities and services available. The only option for eating or for drinks is the...

We recently came back from spending ten days on the French Side of St. Martin. We chose Hotel L'Esplanade largely based on prior TripAdvisor reviews, and we were not disappointed. The property was immaculately maintained, the staff friendly & helpful, and the location ideal. It was a short five minute walk down to restaurant row, and the path from the...

My wife and I were both looking for an escape from our hectic lives and our stay at Hotel L'Esplanade served as the perfect refuge. During our short stay we traveled quite a bit around the island and I must say this hotel was the highlight of our trip. The service was warm and friendly. Our room was impeccable. The...

Soft breezes on the perfectly private porch/deck. Lovely bedroom loft with a fantastic shower and a quiet tropical fan. We can't say enough about the location and the amenities. It's an easy trundle down the hill into Grand Case and to the unrivaled capital of food and lovely sunset bars. This the THE place to be in St. Martin. Really...
