Wonderful Vacation

Great place to stay. We stayed June 9th though 14th. We did not stay in a renovated room. But room was very nice, clean and very quiet. Solid room, could not hear any noise from other rooms. Felt like the only people in the building. Construction through the week but only during the day. Office staff was wonderful. Immediate service if anything was needed. Grounds very clean. Clean pool but we did not use it. Free breakfast was great! Ate at the restaurant for dinner one of the best on the island. Dinner service was about to close in 15 minutes and they took the time to make us a wonderful dinner. They made us feel welcome and not rushed. Would stay again.

The beach was kept impeccable by the staff. The beach staff were always there to set up our umbrella and help us with our chairs. The beach in front of La Playa was one of the nicest beaches I have ever visited and everyone we met, from fellow tourist to the locals selling their wares, were pleasant to be around. I normally do not care to swim in the ocean but the water was so clear and clean, no seaweed, and sandy floor, that I went in every day to cool off. Breakfast was always nice. The breakfast staff was efficient, courteous and kept the place clean and ready for the next guest. Front desk were accommodating to our needs and very friendly. The room was ok not outstanding. We stayed a full week and by the time we left our bodies literally hurt from the older/hard mattress. It was clean and the cleaning staff were friendly and accommodating as well.When they said kitchenette in their description, I expected a coffee maker to be supplied. It was not but since they served great coffee with breakfast it turned out to not be an issue. Overall a good experience.

Great location

We really enjoyed the week we spent here! All the employees were helpful and curtious. We walked the one block to the grocery to get supplies for the week. Kelly at the front desk helped us get scheduled for a tour. If you get a chance take a tour with Noel Day Tours. Very hands on and informative! Great trip!!

What's to Love

The kitchenettes in the rooms at La Playa - Orient Bay are super convenient. The proximity to Orient Bay Village is perfect, too! It's only a short walk away.
 

What We'd Change

It would be nice to have more onsite dining options, but St. Martin is famed for its delectable cuisine anyway so you can always venture out for some grub.
 

Why You Should Go

The resort's beachfront location on Orient Bay says it all. The soft sand and deliciously clear-blue water are the focal point of this part of the island.
