Not bad
Average to good overall. WiFi was almost always down. Walkable to other restaurant, drinking and lounging options. About worth what I paid for the stay.

Probably best hotel on Orient beach.
Very friendly and helpfull reception personnel. Great location and great beach. Rooms are big and clean. I was 3 years ago at Esmerald hotel and if I compare, I prefered clearly the experience at La Playa and it is in addition less expensive. Esmerald rooms are in little cottages with each a shared private pool, but the pools are so small that they are kind of worthless. La Playa has a more typical concept, at first sight less luxurious, as there are 6 or 7 rooms per house with all a view in nature or beach and a big swimming pool on the side for all, but is is more practical. The beach is really close at La Playa and the beach restaurant of La Playa is excellent. The village and some simple shops are at 150m walking distance without any disturbance or noise. At Esmerald you would need to walk 10 minuntes to go to village.

Clean, comfortable & improved from old L'Hoste
We have stayed at the location about five times since 2005, and the first two stays were when the hotel was known as "L'Hoste." The current owners changed the name to La Playa and have done a lot to improve the appearance and maintenance of the property. For example, a lot of needed painting, repairs to walkways and updates to room decor have made a big difference in the property appearance. The cleaning and maintenance staff are more consistent and do a better job. We are happy with the hotel and really enjoy our stays. The rooms are comfortable and clean, and the location is very close to Orient Beach, and a short drive to Grand Case. We tend to eat dinner in Grand Case most often, but we love our days on Orient Beach. If you decide to stay at La Playa without a rental car, there are a number of good restaurants in the plaza that is a short walk from the hotel, as well as a small grocery store, cafe, news shop and assorted retail shops. We spent a lot of time in rental chairs at Bikini Beach Bar, but the La Playa rate can include chairs at their beach, plus beach towels, and a continental breakfast. If you are from the United States and are expecting a full-service US-style hotel, (e.g., room service, bell hops, and valets), then I think most hotels on the French side of St. Martin are likely not the experience you are looking for. But, if you want a clean, comfortable place that is short, relaxing distance from Orient Beach, the La Playa is a great choice.
