Had a little problem with checking in but they were very apologetic and upgraded the room. Other than that. Great place. Great beach. Overall experience was very good. The rooms were clean and everyone was very helpful when asking them questions. I would definitely recommend.

Don't bother staying on St Maartin/Martin unless you like Casino's, etc. It was not a nice island and the only reason to go there is to fly in to go to St Barth or Anguilla. If you need to stay 1 night in St Maartin if you want a clean room then staying at La Samanna might make sense, but...

Dear Deanna H, Thank you for taking the time to write about your impressions of the island and the resort, it is regretful that you feel this way about both. St. Maarten/St.Martin has expanded and grown over the years whereas our neighboring islands have done so at a much slower pace. Nevertheless, to say that it is run down and...

Restaurant food was burnt. We ordered a bottle of wine and it arrived when we were almost done with dinner. When I asked about any issue, the answer was that it was 'off season'. That seemed to 'excuse' any concern. Some staff were authentically helpful; however most were smiling while body language showed disdain. It seemed they felt they were...

My fiancé and I stayed at La Sammana two years ago for a wedding. We were excited to be returning! What a disappointment. The waitstaff clearly do not like American Tourists. We had a wedding group of about 70 people who flew in from all over the States, I'm sure will be adding to the service disappointment. $7 waters, $9...

For the last 9 years we have enjoyed vacationing on Anguilla and have stayed at Mallihouanna (which is closed but was our favorite) The Viceroy and Cap Jaluca.

Beautiful, well kept resort! The beach and pools were amazing. We stayed in one of the beach cottages and it was well worth the cost. It was spacious and decorated beautifully. The restaurant was excellent as was the view. The bar staff was the only thing mediocre, they were unfriendly and slow. The pool was rarely cleaned up from the...

My husband and I have stayed at 5 star hotels around the world, but La Samanna provided the best overall experience we've had anywhere. We stayed in an ocean front suite, second floor, with a stunning view of the green ocean water, the infinity pool and the beautiful bay. The suite was lovely and spotlessly clean, the food was delicious...

We stayed in a Suite with the plunge pool and it was absolutely a wonderful experience. The view from the room was breath taking and the privacy factor of having our own patio area was totally worth it. The food at the hotel was excellent as well. The people were very friendly. Overall I would go back and stay there...
