Full of character

This is our 6th time on the island (always on the French side) and our previous resort converted to an all inclusive format. This is not an all inclusive island for us. St.Martin is about the food and in finding the neat little places, not dwelling on resort food. We switched over to Grand Case Beach Club and almost ashamed to say pleasantly surprised. GCBC is not a new property, but is full of character and aged gracefully. It is also not a large property, but lots of nooks and cranny's to find and enjoy. The staff was friendly from check in until we left. They truly lived up to the islands motto. There is very little negative that I could say, so I won't. GCBC had a comfortable home(y) feel and seems to be our new St. Martin residence when visiting.

Grand Case...Don't be afraid

I would love to give this resort a 1 Palm tree review..only to keep this little gem private for us! Our Info: Single Couple in early 40's. Regular travelers, avid scuba divers, been to almost every popular, and not so popular islands in the Carrib. Probably more comfortable as "cruisers" to see where we want to go in the future, and St. Martin was a good example of that. Came here on honeymoon, and it was wifes birthday/our anniversary, and decided to try the French side of this beautiful place. Flew and checked in on a Thursday 6/23 and left Sunday 6/26. Boked on the French side, it had been a busy couple months and this was to just "unplug" and sit on a beach. Travel To Resort: TAKE THE TAXI...20-25 minute ride....I know not mention costs, but taxi for two and luggage was $35. Better than the private car rates....the taxi stand is just outside of arrivals...very easy. 20-30 minute ride, as our taxi driver gave us probably a 10 minute tour of Marigot (French Capitol), which was great, to give us a fell as to where to go if we wanted to. Island is about 33 miles square, so it's pretty hard to get lost here. The ride is pretty mixed with regular run down shacks, as in most areas in the Carib.....but wait...it gets better! CHECK IN: we dropped our bags, and walked into the check in area, very nice. I was getting nervous for my wife, as the ride in wasn't "post-card like". I'm more used to it than her as a diver, we've stayed in some sketchy places. Inside, we were met by a younger woman, who seemed disinterested in our arrival, and didn't explain much to us. I had to eavesdrop on another couple to here what was going on. In a few minutes, the lady who seemed to know what she was talking about, invited us to a guest mixer, explained the lock, and how to use the gym. (ALL CYBEX!) Then we were off to see our room (#703) Ok, so now I'm 50/50 on this so far. Full disclosure, 1st time using CheapCaribean. We entered our room..>WOW!!!!!!!! JUST WOW!!!!! B ROOM: 703- Beautifully appointed. Probably top 2 rooms I've stayed in anywhere...US and abroad. JUST WOW...everything just got a whole lot better! I mean not what I expected...10+. Walk in to Jazz playing in French. Nice tile wood planked floors. Big King Bed. Kitchenette. Get this...AC that actually worked and was cold!!! Each unit has its' own AC Unit. For those of you who travel and get a room in a hotel that always seems a bit sticky and not quite cold....this was a breath of fresh air! Beautiful appointment, really clean bathroom and cool open shower. For such a humid climate, NO MILDEW. Wine and glasses awaiting your arrival. Granite tops through out. Flat screen TV and real CABLE! HOT WATER in the tropics! and a good amount too. Large patio with furniture, and the ability to make it private, which lead out to a garden. OCEAN VIEW. Literally steps to the pool, steps to the beach, steps to the garden, steps to the restaurant....PERFECT PERFECT, PERFECT!!! One tip for US travelers...ONLY 210 volts...bring a converter to charge phones, cameras, etc. You can rent one for $10, but for $10, you can buy a 2 pack at the airport. Now the room was a bit noisy at night until about 10 o'clock, there were children above us. No doubt about it...loved the room and facility....LOVED IT. Based on the room alone, we will come back...and ask for this room. RESORT: Grounds were as well kept as any. There seemed to be one guy, who was grounds keeping, minding his own business and never in our way, who seemed to work sun up to sun down on the grounds, and it shows....very very nice and clean. Tons of very nice little nooks to relax, sit, have a coffee/drink, take pictures, nap..etc. I mean, we wanted some alone time...and we got it! Beaches on both sides were nothing short of Gorgeous. Snorkels, fins, goggles, kayaks, canoes, noodles, and floating pads, everything on site to play in the water. Guys helped you get in and launch, guy there to get you and set up an umbrella, and chairs...and get lunch and drinks if need be. Really nice relaxed resort. Top 10 all the way! CAFE (on site restaurant)- This was by far the most average thing on the trip. They are separate from the resort, so you can set up a bill there, and just pay at the end of your stay. Initially, breakfast every day you get some creasaunts, bread and a glass of OJ. Not enough, just order from the menu. Prices are really reasonable, and thank you for that! Now the eggs and hash browns the first morning. Just OK. the eggs were quite tiny? not worth it. However....the omelets, although small, were very flavorful, and my favorite there...also good price. Wife got eggs benedict / Florentine each day...she liked them, small, but tasted great. Lunch was ok to flat, and we did not eat dinner there. so out of 10 stars...it gets a 5.5. Just from really good breakfast to just flat lunch..too just ok breakfast...it was very up and sort of down. What I will say, is its really convenient, so we made do. What other did around us was cooked breakfast in their own rooms, and dined out later. Now the drinks were very good, and service was better than average. The workers were the same and seemed a tad overworked, but they always had a smile, and worked very hard to make your stay as great as they could. Very happy with the staff thee. Get a quavaberry coolada at least once! Its nice to have the restaurant on site. Great for quick snacks, breakfast/lunch and drinks! TOWN: Not as big as the descriptions make it out to be. We were there during the "slow season" and noticed shorter hours and some restaurants being closed. All in walking distance...really. Being in Law Enforcement, what I did see was low crime and occasionally French military making a presence...nothing to be c=scared of. What I would warn is the short low lit section between the resort and town, maybe a hundred yards, is don't vary a purse. Although there is security guards along the route, there are a lot of kids on bikes and motored bikes...easy enough to "grab & go". AGAIN, I had no security concerns for me or my wife, just food for thought. Really seemed like a safe place. Observed a lot of older folks walking around with no issues. Go to the LoLo's. Great bbq'd cheap food, and plentiful. We tried the front 2, sky's the limit, and the one right next to it. Great amount of food, well cooked, and pretty darn cheap. For her b-day, we had an exquisite French fare at on of the French places in town. Very very good, and I'm not a fancy food eater (see lolo). HOME: The night before, a very pleasant man ordered a taxi for us, and sure enough, on our day of departure, it was 5 minutes early. Airport immigration was relatively quick and easy. We had a major delay because of the only airstrip one way in / out, but no problem. ALl in all....our only disappointment, if you can say that, was the up and down of the on site restaurant. It went from so-so to excellent...grounds we great (don't worry about the tiny little lizards), resort was great, beaches were great. What I loved was there was plenty to do (at a cost) or nothing to do if you so choose. We definitely will be back... Thank you guys

Brilliant Experience!

Grand Case Beach Club was an amazing and affordable choice for our honeymoon hotel. Everyone was friendly and helpful and our room was well-appointed, with a firm but comfortable bed, a quiet and effective wall A/C unit, and a pleasantly open shower in the spacious bathroom (we were in a Junior Garden room). The kitchenette was much appreciated, although we did not use the stove or oven. The beach is small but well-kept, and the newly redone pool is very elegant, with beautiful views of the beach below and the mountains to the southeast. We enjoyed many meals at the lovely Sunset Cafe, which had delightful fare and courteous waitstaff/bartenders. With its variety of pleasant hideaways to sit and relax around the grounds, the resort felt small and intimate (we did go in the offseason), and our fellow guests were a good mixture of ages and nationalities. GCBC is conveniently located within walking distance of quite a few excellent restaurants and lolos, although we had a bit of trouble finding a well-stocked grocery store. The inclusion of daily beach towel service, good umbrellas/lounge chairs, and floats/masks/snorkels/fins was a nice touch.

Great location and property

This is a great location. The hotel/condo complex feels like a small boutique hotel. You never have to fight for a chair either at the pool or beach even though it was full. There are numerous locations to go where it would just be the two of you. Sunday was the busy day when the locals came down to the adjacent beach. Food on the premises is limited to one restaurant it was convenient, we used it mostly for breakfast/lunch. However, you are in the dining capital of the Caribbean with many excellent French restaurants just a short walk away. I cannot say enough about our week. Now the French side is less developed and we drove through some rough areas and tight winding roads to get there. In addition, you must understand that Grand Case is not a pristine new area. Although it is very safe walking from the hotel and even in Grand Case proper you do pass some older, even dilapidated housing/storefronts. Overall we definitely loved the experience and would return again.

Hotel Description

Grand Case Beach Club: Indulge in Culinary Cuisine

Listed as one of the best medium-sized Caribbean resorts in Caribbean Travel & Life Magazine, this 72-unit condo-style hotel is within easy walking distance of Grand Case's amazing restaurant row. As soon as you arrive at Grand Case Beach Club in St. Martin, the foodie fun begins with a complimentary welcome bottle of French wine.

Glass-in-hand, relax by the freshwater pool overlooking the sparkling sea. When you're ready to hit the beach, the hotel's water sports center provides free non-motorized aqua sports equipment. Paddle about in a kayak or pedal boat, or just borrow a float and rock gently among the blue waves. The water sports center can also arrange boating, scuba diving or other excursions.

In St. Martin in the French West Indies, colorful Caribbean culture meets haute French cuisine. An affordable island vacation doesn't mean you have to settle for standard buffet fare; in fact, the resort caters to those who appreciate the savory delights of European-inspired cuisine and a laid-back, beachy setting.

When it's time to eat, the hotel's Sunset Cafe, is no mere backup plan. Wake up with a delightful cup of strong coffee and a flaky, buttery croissant. At lunch, sink your teeth into succulent escargot, then enjoy seafood gratin at dinner. In addition to savoring a wide variety of excellent entrees on offer at the hotel, guests at Grand Case Beach Club in St. Martin will want to explore the more than 20 gourmet restaurants in the village, many just a pleasant stroll away.

If you want to venture a little farther and check out the other area attractions, think about renting a car. Put the pedal to the metal and visit Atlantis World Casino, the Chrysalis, the Rouge et Noir or some of the many other nearby casinos. If you'd rather try your luck on the greens, just cruise on over to the nearby golf course.
