The hotel is beautiful and can be rated as one of the top hotels in the world. The grounds are magnificent and the bungalows breathtaking. They are updated with all the comfortable features of home. The beaches, service, breakfasts and beaches are a rare finding all grouped to one property. I highly recommend staying there on your next vacation.

Paradies! We have been returning to La Samanna for the past several years and consider it a little bit of Paradise on Earth. Stepping onto the resort transcends you into another universe. The rooms are spectacular and the views breathtaking. The beach is private and sand like cushions under your feet. Why try someplace else when you have perfection here....

A short hop from the airport and there's nothing to stop you from winding down. Relaxed setting and staff, great beach, two pools, tennis (with a delightful in-house coach from Poland), sea activities and great food. Loved the shock of crossing paths with a very large iguana, the colour of lime margarita.

The rooms are delightful, the restaurant is first class with delicious food, as you may expect from a French Restaurant but unusual in the Caribbean. The Beach is beautiful as is the clear clean sea. Beware, there is a climb to get out of the sea, so not for the infirm. But the pool is large, warm and again is...

Dear vivthetraveller, Many thanks for taking the time to post your review. I am very happy that the rooms and restaurant were to your liking. As you said, Baie Longue beach is a very beautiful beach, in fact it was voted in the top 100 beaches, something we are both very proud and lucky to call ours. We look forward...

La Samanna is a beautiful place to have breakfast. Although, I have stayed here before. I prefer to stay in the Grand Case area near all the French Restaurants. See my reviews.

Dear FrankA, Thank you for taking the time to post your review. Our breakfast buffet is a big hit with both guests and outside guests and the view cannot be matched.

We have been staying at La Samanna for about 17 years, twice a year for the last 7 or 8, and have to tell you there's a reason other than just the beautiful location, great service, and cold Carib that Jean Woel, Garry, or Romel always have waiting for us before we even sit down at the beach bar -...

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...
