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!!

Great location, room needs updates

We really enjoyed our stay at la playa. The location is outstanding- the proximity to orient beach and orient village is perfect. My only complaints are that the rooms are in need of updating and the a/c did not cool off the room very well at all. New mattresses and pillows would be nice, they are very old and hard. Other than that we had an excellent stay and would return.

Nice place, excellent stay

We were here for a night following our honeymoon in Saba. Katy was incredibly friendly and accommodating considering we showed up before noon to check in - fairly certain we got an upgrade, as well! The room was cleaned and ready in a very short period of time, after which she walked us through everything we needed to know with a smile. Overall, the resort was very clean. The beach, food, drink, and resort staff were all excellent, and there's plenty to do, see, eat, and drink within a very short walking distance. The room smelled a bit musty after the smell of the cleaners went away, but it's to be expected considering the heat, humidity, and constant A/C. The room was nice, clean, and comfortable. We will definitely go back if we find ourselves staying on the French side of the island again.

Relaxing La Playa

If you want to get away to St Martin but do not want to be close to the hustle and bustle of the airport, commercialization and cruise ships, La Playa on the French side is the place to go. Nestled in a quaint gated community is a gem. The rooms could be modified a little bit and kept a bit cleaner but for the most part it was amazing. WiFi in the hotel is VERY weak and you cannot keep a good connection if you are in need of electronic devices. The pristine beach is just a short 30 second walk away. Also a short walk away you will find an amazing bakery with fresh pastries (perfect with coffee in the morning next to the beach). There are also a few restaurants right next door with great service and food. I will return for sure.

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.
