    Belmond La Samanna
    St. Martin
    5-star HOTEL CLASS
    TripAdvisor Traveler Rating 4.5 based on 1160 reviewsTripAdvisor (1160)

    Overlooking the waves of Baie Longue from its seat in western St. Martin, Belmond La Samanna lures sun-seekers to its premises with its promise of access to some of the best sands on the island. Guests agree that the location is enviable, praising the ocean views they found outside their rooms and suites (which can be enjoyed from private balconies, terraces or – for a little extra money – plunge pools). This member of the Belmond hotels family also delights R&R-seekers with its peaceful atmosphere. Travelers praise the well-manicured grounds and beautiful pools, as well as the property's extraordinary spa treatments. After unwinding at the spa, vacationers can enjoy French-inspired cuisine and front-row sunset views at L'Oursin Restaurant. Additional on-site dining options include an alfresco breakfast eatery and a casual Caribbean-French fusion restaurant. All three dining establishments receive rave reviews from diners, although some caution that the dishes are expensive.

    Sonesta Ocean Point Resort

    5-star HOTEL CLASS
    TripAdvisor Traveler Rating 4 based on 1414 reviewsTripAdvisor (1414)
    Free Breakfast
    Free WiFi

    An adults-only, all-inclusive luxury hotel on the esatern shores of St. Maarten, the Sonesta Ocean Point Resort caters to vacationing couples and friends. Each of the all-suite property's 130 accommodations features a neutral color palette, a minifridge, Italian Modena porcelain floors and a Greek marble bathroom, a private balcony with ocean views, 400-thread-count linens, free Wi-Fi access and a flat-screen TV with satellite channels. Plus, electronic wristband room keys make getting in and out of your room easy, as you won't have to remember to bring a key with you. Outside the suites, you'll find three pools, four bars and three restaurants that feature Caribbean- and Mediterranean-inspired dishes on their menus. Additional dining venues at the nearby Sonesta Maho Beach Resort, Casino & Spa are free to enjoy starting in February 2019. Overall, recent visitors heaped praise on the resort's friendly employees and clean accommodations. However, many warned that several areas of the property are still undergoing renovations to repair damage from Hurricane Irma, meaning you may hear construction noise and encounter missing or malfunctioning suite amenities during your stay. But, members of the Sonesta Travel Pass rewards program can pay for suites with accrued points.

    Divi Little Bay Beach Resort
    Philipsburg
    4-star HOTEL CLASS
    TripAdvisor Traveler Rating 4 based on 2533 reviewsTripAdvisor (2533)
    Free WiFi

    One of this resort's best assets is its location by Divi Little Bay Beach in Philipsburg, St. Maarten. Previous lodgers raved about this resort's affordable room rates and picturesque setting, citing its desolate sands, calm waves and superb snorkeling as highlights. However, many lamented the poorly maintained facilities, slow service and outdated accommodations. All rooms and suites feature neutral color schemes and come outfitted with flat-screen TVs, coffee makers and free Wi-Fi access. Outside the accommodations, visitors will find complimentary nonmotorized water sports equipment rentals at the beach, as well as three pools, a shopping promenade, a spa and a fitness center. There are also three sit-down restaurants that serve everything from casual American fare to gourmet Italian cuisine.

    The Westin Dawn Beach Resort & Spa, St. Maarten
    St. Maarten
    4-star HOTEL CLASS
    TripAdvisor Traveler Rating 4 based on 2419 reviewsTripAdvisor (2419)
    Free Parking
    Free WiFi

    Situated on Dawn Beach along St. Maarten's eastern coast, this resort pampers guests with Westin amenities and sweeping views. Accommodations are furnished with the brand's signature Heavenly Beds, neutral and pastel decor and private patios or balconies. Previous guests highly recommend requesting an ocean-view room when making your reservations, saying that the vistas alone are worth the slightly inflated room rate. Even if you can't see the sea from your accommodations, you'll have easy access to sugary sands, as well as an expansive outdoor infinity pool. And if you're seeking an even more relaxed setting, you can indulge in a soothing treatment at the Hibiscus Spa. The Westin also features a casino and three on-site restaurants and a poolside cafe that serves lighter fare. However, some guests feel that this resort doesn't quite live up to the brand's standards; there are no major complaints, but travelers say that The Westin left more to be desired, like better menu options at the restaurants. And because this hotel is part of the Marriott hotel family, Marriott Bonvoy members can earn or use points here. Note: The resort was impacted by the 2017 hurricanes and is expected to reopen in 2019.

    Simpson Bay Resort & Marina
    Simpson Bay
    4-star HOTEL CLASS
    TripAdvisor Traveler Rating 4 based on 1415 reviewsTripAdvisor (1415)
    Free WiFi

    Simpson Bay Resort & Marina in St. Maarten is home to 336 spacious suites. All accommodations are decorated in vibrant tropical hues and come equipped with kitchens, free internet access, walk-in showers, coffee makers, king-sized beds and private terraces or balconies. Outside the rooms, visitors have access to an array of amenities, including seven pools (including one for kids), a white sand beach, four tennis courts and L'Aqualigne Spa. Plus, several restaurants and shops sit within walking distance, so lodgers have the option of eating out or cooking a meal in their accommodations. Recent guests recommend checking out the area's eateries, though they suggest using the resort's complimentary shuttle to reach off-site dining venues since the restaurants are an uphill walk from the property. Others praise the beautiful grounds and facilities but caution that those with mobility issues should request a room on the first floor since the resort's elevators are often out of order.

    Esmeralda Resort
    Baie Orientale
    4-star HOTEL CLASS
    TripAdvisor Traveler Rating 4 based on 441 reviewsTripAdvisor (441)
    Free Breakfast
    Free Parking

    Facing the beryl-tinted waters of St. Martin's Orient Bay, Esmeralda Resort boasts 65 rooms and suites spread throughout 18 villas. Each villa features its own swimming pool with Jacuzzi jets, along with a private entrance and terrace. Recent guests said the resort's rooms are spacious and well-maintained, adding that you should request a room closer to the beach (only two villas face the ocean) for the best views. When you're not relaxing poolside, head to the beach and enjoy a complimentary chair and umbrella. Or, try your hand at surfing, Jet Skiing or parasailing, just a few of the activities available on-site. After working up an appetite, stave off hunger pangs with a meal at The Astrolabe restaurant. Though recent visitors raved about the eatery's French-inspired fare and attentive service, they're also quick to recommend eating off-site at one of Orient Bay's eateries. Also, keep in mind that despite the resort's reopening in late 2018 after sustaining damage from Hurricane Irma in 2017, some repairs are still ongoing. As such, construction noise may be occasionally heard, according to past travelers.

    Hotel Riu Palace St. Martin

    4-star HOTEL CLASS
    TripAdvisor Traveler Rating 4 based on 2370 reviewsTripAdvisor (2370)
    Free Breakfast
    Free Parking
    Free WiFi

    Formerly the Radisson Blu Resort, Marina & Spa St. Martin, this newly rebranded RUI hotel neighbors Le Domaine de Lonvilliers along northern St. Martin's Anse Marcel sands. At this all-inclusive, guests have access to an infinity pool with complimentary sun loungers and towels, kayaks and snorkeling equipment, and one free scuba diving lesson. All other sports, such as windsurfing and sailing, cost extra. If you're traveling with kids in tow, the hotel's got you covered there, too: It offers a day program for guests ages 4 to 12. After you've worked up an appetite, head to the Hotel Riu's 24-hour buffet or any one of its three specialty restaurants. And as far as rooms go, travelers say that they were more than comfortable here thanks to the spacious floor plans and private balconies and patios (not to mention complimentary high-speed Internet access). However, some visitors do note that the furnishings are a bit worn. Last – but certainly not least – the Hotel Riu grants access to a picturesque white-sand beach, peppered with lounge chairs and umbrellas.
