This was a wonderful resort. The reason I gave it four stars instead of five, is the facility is a little older, but nevertheless, is updated, clean, and picturesque. The air conditioning is a wall unit, which was somewhat noisy and blew right on us when we slept. Other than that, the property was well maintained, and the service of...

We needed a place to stay for a week after cruising on Island Windjammer's tall ship Sagitta out of Sint Maarten and we wanted to be on the French side close to Orient Beach and near the restaurants at Grand Case. We picked the Esmeralda and were thrilled. It has a series of villas containing 2-4 accomodations (ours had 3,...

Esmeralda is a beautiful, comfortable resort. We stayed in the duplex style suites. Each side has it's own kitchenette, and glass sliders onto a covered porch. Two steps from the covered porch you are in your own small swimming pool. We stayed at the end of the resort closest to the beach so we just walked out of our room...

The resort is quiet and relaxing, it consists of villas/bungalows spread over a large area with a semi-private pool (you share only with the neighbors). There is direct access to the beach so a car is not really necessary if you don't plan on exploring other areas. Service is great and the staff are friendly and helpful; they helped us...
