Would Love to Stay Here Again

Feb 23rd, 2020

We stayed here three nights in mid-January 2020 and found our stay to be a very pleasant three days. As with most or all of the buildings here (ours had three units) we had our own swimming pool and were a very short walk from the beautiful beach on Orient Bay. Our room was spacious, clean and nicely appointed. The staff was friendly and efficient. There are beachside restaurants very close by. The restaurant, L'Astrolabe was only a few steps from our room and we had dinner there twice because we enjoyed it so much. TRIPADVISOR.COM USER

Great location near to many restaurants

Feb 17th, 2020

Clean, well maintained. Reception staff very friendly and helpful. Easy walk to the beach—Atlantic. Unit 524. Large, spacious, high ceiling room with kitchenette. King bed is very comfortable. Sliding door to private patio adjacent to the private pool. Parking right at the unit. There is one villa that has been converted to the Astrolabe restaurant under separate management. There are also about 5 beach bars—with great food not too far away. A little farther walk and there is a plaza off the beach with about 9 restaurants, outdoor craft market, a small grocery store with fresh produce, frozen and refrigerated foods and a deli style butcher stand and good parking. I recommend getting a car to get about to drive to Phillipsburg, Marigot and Grand Case. Taxis are $$. TRIPADVISOR.COM USER

Never ever again!

Feb 10th, 2020

The breakfast is above and beyond lousy. Staying in 4- and 5 * Hotels around the world- I know what is like to have a nice Breakfast - even so if you spend 1.780€ for 3 nights! You only get every mornig the some 2 chocolate croissants and 2 regular croissants and 2 small pieces of white bread- 1 raspberry and 1 peach jelly. A small variety in fruits- that’s it! Everything else is for extra charge! Being in the Caribbean or in other tropical places, I am aware of that Cookroaches are easy to get. At least you can take them away if housekeeping cleans the room. Talking about cleanigness- change the curtain or fix it- clean the patio and Windows! The water in the Toilette won’t stop automatically after flushing. The tv is not working - nobody has an real idea what is going on! TRIPADVISOR.COM USER

Nice Resort

Feb 7th, 2020

Pros: Staff - all interactions with staff were great, very helpful and friendly Room - very spacious, clean, no issues with anything Restaurant - good breakfast, reasonable pricing Beach - beach was nice, plenty of loungers with cushions and umbrellas available at no charge to Esmeralda guests. also a bar/restaurant with bathrooms right there Atmosphere - very relaxed and quiet Cons: Beach Access - the brick pathway leading to the beach ends into a construction zone where the rebuilding of the Coco beach bar is ongoing. once the bricks end it is a tricky 50 yard walk down the sand/muddy hill to the beach, especially after it had rained. Only other option was to take road out of resort then circle back down other road leading to beach. Plug adapters - they do provide plug adapters for US clients but most of them the connection was so loose your plug wouldn't stay in the adapter. Landscaping - kind of petty but there are weeds growing up in the cracks in the sidewalks, doorways and around the concrete edging at pool. Tips: There is a place called shop and drop grocery shop n drop grocery sxm which you can order anything you need online and it is delivered to your room, even before you get there so your room is stocked when you arrive. We packed a cooler bag full of drinks everyday to bring to the beach with no issues. Resort has ice machine in lobby. Plenty of friendly dogs roaming the beach and friendly cats up amongst the villas at the resort Would return☺ TRIPADVISOR.COM USER
