We had a great time in St. Martin, however L'Hoste was just average in accomodations. The room was clean but the Balcony looked like it had not been cleaned for quite some time. The A/C was great in the room as well as the location being right in the middle of Orient Bay. We don't spend much time in the...

Left a day early as we got tired of looking at the dumpster from our balcony. Breakfast was very good, other meals not so. Beach was very nice.

Let me start by saying that I thoroughly enjoyed this vacation and the stay at L’Hoste. In the past I have focused all my reviews on being positive but I’ve felt that it may not be completely fair (not giving the whole picture) so I am going to try to touch on all aspects in this review.

We really enjoyed l'hoste hotel. first the location is awesome, right by Orient bay beach which beautiful with trendy beach bars and restaurants. The food at La playa beach bar-restaurant which belongs to the same owner was super nice with excellent food and coktails served by friendly employees. Then the room was comfy, nicely decorated with a king size bed....

We spent three nights here with our two older teen daughters. The rooms are updated inside - nicer than what you expect from the outside. No problem changing rooms to get two beds instead of one for our daughters. Each room has an easy to use safe. Sleep quality, safety, bathrooms and continental breakfast was all good. Also very close...

Great facilities and a great continental breakfast included. Big guest rooms with microwave, stoves, sink and frige. The area is close to the main downtown. The Hotel needs more beach activity to include music, it's to quite. A secure place to travel with kids. We buy great package flight & Hotel "internet site".

L'Hoste Hotel received some negative reviews earlier this May, and I was concerned - especially about allegations of an unclean hotel and rude staff. Not True. On the Contrary. Our experience for our two week stay was exceptional from the moment we arrived and were greeted with smiles and assistance to the (always) difficult goodbye. Our room was cleaned daily...
