My husband and I just got back from our trip to St. Martin and would go back to L'Esplanade in a heartbeat. We got wonderful service from each service person at this laid back boutique hotel. And, just to clarify, I mean the atmosphere for the guests is laid back, but each hotel staff person we encountered was professional, yet...

This hotel was just beautiful - we came to the Grand Case area under the suggestion of a family member. This hotel was in the perfect location, small walking distance to the fantastic restaurants within Grand Case - but in a more secluded location which made it perfect for our honeymoon. The hotel was up to date (we stayed in...

a very special and romantic small hotel were they treat you like royalty. Spacious , immaculate rooms with fabulous views of the harbor. Walking distance to tons of good restaurants. A hidden treasure. We were at the Westin before and what a positive difference L'Esplanade made in our opinion of St. Martens.

We stayed in a loft suite in mid February 2010. Paying the extra for a loft suite is well worth it. It is a noticeable difference over the regular suites. Recommend requesting a suite away from the lobby when making reservations. Room King size bed was very comfortable (firm), pillows were very soft (not firm) Full kitchen is provided. There...

This place was so perfect we did not move the car for 4 days. Every room has an ocean view and look s very much like the website indicates. YOu have more privacy on the upper floor rooms with better water views, but the lower floors have the well manicured gardens + a view. You can't go wrong. This is...

Went there end of Jan /early Feb 2010. Loved the scenic views and love the French side in general. The Dutch side is so commercial and gets the "cruise" set with fannypacks and all. The Grand Case area is full of life, good food and wonderful, carefree people. Yes- the hotel is on a hill- but we managed fine- even...

As a faithful TripAdvisor user, I was struck by the spectacular ratings and reviews Hotel L'Esplanade had on this site. While the hotel was tucked into a charming and quiet hillside of Grand Case and the rooms were spacious and roomy (bigger than our apartment back home!), that's about all this highly-rated hotel has going for it. It definitely has...

My girl friend and I stayed for three nights for her birthday last month, and it was wonderful. The staff goes out of their way to help you. The Owners are the nicest people you could meet.

We sailed from Simpson Bay on a catamaran for a week and needed a hotel for the night before we sailed and the nigh we returned.

We were there over the Christmas vacation. We orginally booked a delux loft in Feb. Unexpected family emergency forced a cancellation. They did honor our reservation for the Christmas week. The prices increase for the holiday. We went from a deluxe loft for $445 per day to a deluxe studio for $495 per day before the 15% tax. The room...
