This is just a piece of paradise on St.Martin, with Octopus Diving just down the street this is the perfect hotel to stay in. Book well in advance and also book your dive package in advance, Octopus stays busy most of the year. This is my 10th time at this Hotel and at Octopus Diving. The perfect vacation.

Stayed in the hotel the 1st week of October when the rain wouldn't end. Hotel was wonderful, staff was a pleasure to talk to, couldn't ask for a nicer place to stay. Rooms are large and decorated well, very classy establishment. Couldn't get them to do anything about the weather though. Would highly recommend (and already have) staying there. David

We did a lot of research before going on this vacation. We couldn't decide between St. Barth's and St. Martin, but I am so glad that we decided on St. Martin, especially the French side. We actually got engaged on the balcony of our room. The views are gorgeous, the staff is so friendly and accomodating, everything is impeccably clean,...

Words cannot describe this fabulous hotel, but I will try. L'Esplanade is located a top the lush Grand Case hillside complete with the most stunning vistas of green mountains, Caribbean blue waters and occasional sailboats. I will start by describing the rooms. We stayed in one of the gracious one bedroom suites. It was so spacious and clean. Great modern...

We had never been to St Martin but had travelled a bit in the Caribbean (St Thomas/John/Kitts and Aruba). We read the Trip Advisor comments and were torn between Le Petit Hotel and L'Esplanade. Everything about our stay there was perfect. Curb appeal, view, room and service were excellent. My girlfriend had a bad case of sunburn and everything was...

I stayed at Hotel L'Esplanade for the last two nights of my trip to St. Maarten. I had read many reviews about how wonderful it was, but opted to book seven nights at the Princess Heights, as it was the less expensive option. Princess Heights lacked the coziness and beauty that I had wished for, so we ended up moving...

Two years ago, in 2008, we stayed at L'Esplanade. We had such a wonderful time that we decided that the next time we visited the island we would stay there again. And so we did. We stayed there in June 2010. We did not regret it for one single moment. You'll never find a more helpful staff. Nothing is too...

First, this is not a "Bed and Breakfast" - it's an incredible small hotel with service you won't find anywhere else. There's nothing more I can say that hasn't been said before. Great, great hotel, and perfect room. One small disappointment was that the bar was not open at the pool. The restaurants were superb. In order, here our favorites...

This is my first review on TripAdvisor - but i had to write about this amazing little hotel. My husband and I chose Hotel L'Esplanade because of the reviews here - they were spot on.
