My wife and I stayed in 2 of the Deluxe rooms (would recommend calling the property direct a week before- we used Booking.com and they did not forward some minor changes in our reservation). Both rooms were very nice- but the second room was closer to the beach which was a nice perk. The L'Astrolabe Restaurant was very good- great...

Quaint resort. Shared a villa with a few other rooms- could hear people come and go but not bad. Pool is shared as well and not heated. Beach is a minutes walk which was great-very clean-nice chairs and umbrellas. Our room was clean but the bed was horrible!!! The L'Astrolab restaurant on property was wonderful!

This is our 6th time at Esmeralda. The location is perfect...close to the beach and village. The rooms are large, comfortable and very clean. The staff couldn't be nicer. We will be back again next year.

We have been going to St Martin since 1994 and have always thought of this resort as a 5 star resort. The last time in St Martin was in 2010 at La Samanna and it was just great. We decided to go back to St Martin this year after a 7 year absence and try Esmeralda this time. The least...

The rooms are quite large, but I wouldn't say fancy. Nicer/updated furniture would go a long way. Bed was very uncomfortable and zero water pressure in the shower. Once you look past that, it's a very relaxing spot and because you're not crammed into a 300 sq ft room, you feel like you're at home. The staff was friendly and...

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay having a quiet cottage with a beach within in steps and a pool just outside our back lanai. The Esmeralda Resort is perfectly located near the beach - as well as near a whole courtyard of other high quality restaurants. The staff at the resort are genuinely nice, helpful and pleasant to work with. We...

I guess every three years I should say something about Esmeralda, but the fact that we go every year probably gives it away: we love Orient Beach, and Esmeralda as the place to stay. Best location on the beach, terrific beach dining AND fine dining right there, and a staff very eager to please. Say hi to Ellie on the...

We went here for a four day weekend and overall our experience was good. My son and husband were very pleased with the hotel; I however, am more picky and I expected a bit more. We stayed in two different rooms. The first had an unrenovated bathroom and you could really see stains on the tiles and grout. The second,...

We found the Esmeralda to be a very quiet and comfortable setting, The suites were very well kept. We did have a problem with the shower draining slowly which was eventually corrected. It really had little impact on our stay. The staff could not do enough for you and went over and beyond for us. We left our credit card...

Great resort! So pleasantly surprised by this place! Loved staying here and would definitely go back. The food was great, servers were helpful. Concierge service went above and beyond. We needed a doctor while there and they booked and had him come to our room. So very helpful. Only bad experience was minimal and not worth going into as the...
