Good Quiet Hotel
Nice Hotel - Walk to beach, restaurants, small shops. Clean, safe, nice area, mountain views. Good for a quiet, private vacation. Note: Hotel is at quiet, far northern end of Orient Beach, this hotel is good for people that are comfortable walking reasonable distances or else you have to drive.

Fantastic beach, wonderful hotel suite for family
We had a fantastic stay at the Esmeralda resort, the beach was wonderful, nice sand with great waves, perfect amount of privacy, access to the restaurant right there and water sports a short walk away. We had a lovely spacious hotel suite with a private pool and nice deck, and the front desk was super helpful in setting up day trips and dinners at various local restaurants. We highly recommend the resort for families or couples alike. We certainly hope to come back!

Wonderful 4 star hotel right near Orient Beach
This was our first visit to Esmeralda Resort, although we have stayed many other times nearby in Orient Beach. The room was quite spacious, great airconditioning, private pool for the 4 units in our villa, and wonderful service. The staff was especially helpful when we had a problem unlocking our safe in the room, and in their overall helpful and kind way. We will definitely stay here again since we have been coming to St. Martin for over 30 years on an almost annual basis. And the L'Astrolobe restaurant is right in the center of the resort - truly a wonderful, sublime French meal. One of the best meals ever on vacation.

cottage hotel near great beach
This hotel is located far away on the French side of the island near a great beach, which is rather windy but beautiful. Great service on the beach, french style bistros right on the beach. Separate cottages with small pools give privacy but don't stay close to their restaurant, weekends can be noisy. Unfortunately lots of stray cats roam around the property, its an island after all! No management visible during entire week of stay. Breakfast ok, same every day. car needed.

If you don't mind speaking French, this is a wonderful, quiet place. You'd think that you were in the south of France, without the 8 hr plane ride. Suprisingly affordable - many nice shops and restaurants within 1 mile walk... great beach with no "boom boom boom" music - totally quiet.
