    St. Maarten is a difficult place to describe. If you have been to a few islands, you will find it a little disappointing in my opinion. It is tiny, it is difficult to get around, there are two distinct cultures to understand, it's a little...More

    Very beautiful experience. Quiet surroundings, very clean. Staff was superb, and very helpful. So nice to be able to walk to everywhere and not have to hassle with a car or parking! The suit was delightful and the pool area was very tropical feeling.

    Do you have a fitness gym near by

    Response from kcpingc | Property representative |
    Yes, it is Gym Fit in Hope Estate, 3 minutes away by car and it is a full workout center. There is complimentary yoga onsite at L'Esplanade's Ti Temple.
