Great people, sadly still recovering from Irma
This was our first visit to SXM since the devastation of Irma. So saddening to see the devastation but very heartening to see the islanders working hard to reestablish themselves. Esmeralda needs help with landscaping and beautifying the facilities and is obviously still in renovation mode. The staff is friendly and eager to please. Breakfast here was wonderful as always. Best of luck to all as you continue to work on getting this beautiful island back to its former glory.

First time after Hurricane Irma
Our deluxe room was very large and bright, with high ceilings and spacious closets it had been recently renovated. The breakfast that was included in the room price was a basic continental, but you could order eggs and pancakes for a reasonable extra fee. They had and agreement with three beachfront bars, so you could get beach chairs and umbrellas for free. The property has access to the Orient Bay beach. We would highly recommend Esmeralda to family and friends and stay there again if we go back to St Martin.

Great location and service!
Absolutely beautiful beach just a brief walk from the hotel. Hotel staff was so friendly and welcoming; very customer focused! Restaurant on site was excellent! Food was great and atmosphere was very nice. Hotel is still recovering from 2017 hurricane but very pleased with stay and will definitely plan to come back.

Buerger’s Annual Caribbean Vacation
My husband and I were on a romantic Caribbean vacation for the week. We travel often but this was our first time to St. Martin. We had a great time! The food all over the Island was the best that we have ever had! And that says a lot considering how much we travel. There was one employee at the Esmeralda who was exceptional and totally stood out to us and was so helpful and wonderful. Her name was Mildred but Unfortunately we were unable to tell her how much we appreciated her because she wasn’t working the day we left. We left her an envelope with a tip, and I hope she got it! Mildred is wonderful!!! My only negative feedback about the hotel was that the route to the beach is somewhat off putting. While the path from the hotel is very nice, the area where it ends to the beach is pretty bad and not reflective of the hotels image. While we do understand that rebuilding is still going on after the hurricane in 2017 this area could be a little more cleaned up and more inviting for customers. Also it’s a little dangerous with all the glass and debris scattered about. The seaweed could be cleaned up as well as there is a lot of it that you have to walk through to get to the water. Overall we had a great trip and would definitely come back!

Hidden treasure
Couldn’t have been better! Amazing service and friendly staff. We were there for over two weeks and could go back tomorrow! Also only a 2 minute walk to the beach with complimentary chairs, towels and umbrellas.
Charles, us17 night romance trip
Fair 4.0
Great bar and restaurant. Our room was very dated but clean. The resort is being renovated and once complete should be enjoyable. Frankly not worth the money at this time. Staff was efficient and very friendly but the condition of the room made for a bad experience.

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.
