I stayed at Hotel L'Esplanade for the last two nights of my trip to St. Maarten. I had read many reviews about how wonderful it was, but opted to book seven nights at the Princess Heights, as it was the less expensive option. Princess Heights lacked the coziness and beauty that I had wished for, so we ended up moving...

Two years ago, in 2008, we stayed at L'Esplanade. We had such a wonderful time that we decided that the next time we visited the island we would stay there again. And so we did. We stayed there in June 2010. We did not regret it for one single moment. You'll never find a more helpful staff. Nothing is too...

First, this is not a "Bed and Breakfast" - it's an incredible small hotel with service you won't find anywhere else. There's nothing more I can say that hasn't been said before. Great, great hotel, and perfect room. One small disappointment was that the bar was not open at the pool. The restaurants were superb. In order, here our favorites...

This is my first review on TripAdvisor - but i had to write about this amazing little hotel. My husband and I chose Hotel L'Esplanade because of the reviews here - they were spot on. We had never been to St. Martin, but we travel quite frequently and love to stay at boutique hotels. L'Esplanade was 1st rate - we...

We were picked up at the airport and taken to the hotel where we were greeted warmly by the staff. They took us immediately to our room which were great! The beds were comfy, the room clean and even a fresh loaf of bread was awaiting us. Since it was the beginning of the slow season the bar pool was...

Another great vacation - back to Hotel L'Esplanade for the third visit - every year the accommodations amaze us --- beautiful, tranquil, relaxing - what more could you ask for ---and the owners make you feel like family! The owners are so accommodating - they make the best recommendations for food, sightseeing, beaches, shopping. It's like having your own personal...

My boyfriend and I just got back from the hotel after an extensive research process on tripadvisor-- and we couldn't be happier. Here's what we wanted: a tropical location with a very nice (luxury) hotel-- but we didn't want an all inclusive package that would leave us stuck in one place. We really needed to kick back and relax on...

Like so many other reviewers, we loved this place. It was just as advertised on the hotel's web site. The only downside was that the maid service was a little difficult to predict. As a consequence, we returned from the beach late one afternoon to find the lady still hadn't been there, so all we got were fresh towels that...

We recently decided to have our midlife crisis somewhere warm, and after weeks of research, decided on Hotel L'Esplanade. We made the decision largely based on the Trip advisor reviews. Not only were we not disappointed, but our extremely high expectations were far exceeded by the reality. A few highlights: Hotel l'Esplanade Rooms: Amazing. Perfect. Phenomenal.
