Second time to St Martin. Our favorite island in the Caribbean. Has everything we want in one relatively small island. La Samanna is the cream of the crop. No need to research or compare to other hotels. The location itself is on a beautiful private beach right at you back door. The service is impeccable and the food some of...

The hotel is beautiful and service was great. We went for a friends wedding and had a fantastic time. All the rooms face the ocean so it could not be a more fantastic view. If you try to leave the resort a taxi ride will cost you 60 bucks round trip so you are kind of stuck in the resort...

Food, drink, service, service, service! This place has it all, and you can have it all. Came here for a long weekend. Will definitely stay here again! Call ahead to book a beach lounger, because without a res you may not get a spot.

Our party was a group of women celebrating a 60th birthday with two of them, we booked suites with one and two bedrooms. The beach at this resort was one of the best beaches on the island. Many times other boats would come up to let people off to snorkel near the rock side of our beach. All non-motorized sports...

This was our first trip St. Martin. We really loved La Samanna. Our room was very nice. The service at the hotel was exceptional. Isabel, Julie, Benny and Pablo took care of our every need. They are exceptional at what they do. It is true that the prices are a bit steep. But you are on vacation and deserve to...

This is a very comfortable luxury hotel with good food, outstanding service and a wide range of additional services available. We tried the free pilates class which was very professionally delivered, as was the Japanese massage that I had. Breakfast buffet is reputedly the best on the island and we could see why. The bar offers good snacks and is...

This trip was 4 adult couples that had been friends for 40+ years. All late 50s and newly minted grandparents. We had booked this property nearly a year in advance - so expectations were very high.
