    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.

    L'Esplanade Hotel is a boutique hotel tucked into the verdant countryside of St. Martin. Family-owned and operated, this small, 24-room hotel overlooks Grand Case Bay. In fact, all accommodations boast private balconies or terraces with sea views. Stepping into your room or suite is like taking a short trip around the world, as all feature Brazilian woodwork, Balinese furniture and French fabrics. Each also comes equipped with free Wi-Fi access, a cable TV, an iPod docking station and beach towels, which can be brought to the beach (a short walk away) or to the on-site pool. Recent guests recommend visiting the pool bar during your stay, where the on-site bartender, mixes up creative tropical cocktails. If you're looking for a more relaxing stay, take a complimentary yoga class at Ti Temple or book a therapeutic massage at Ti Spa. Keep in mind, the property does not have a restaurant, though a few eateries are situated within walking distance.

    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.
