    Believe The Hype

    We traveled to La Samanna for our honeymoon, at the suggestion of someone who has visited the island for more than 30 years. She told us it was the best property; she did not even do it justice! Upon our arrival Claude greeted us. From the moment we stepped through the door, it felt warm and familiar. The staff creates the most cozy and lovely experience for the guests. We were greeted with a room upgrade and a nice bottle of champagne. Such lovely touches. Our accommodations were outstanding! We had a private patio overlooking the ocean, and everything was a close walkable distance on property. We had a couple's massage. I love to get massages; it was the best massage I've ever had. Out of this world. The food was phenomenal from the creole-french cuisine to the lunch fare. The beach staff is super attentive. We took the ferry over to Anguilla to visit their sister property for a Peruvian lunch, and see the beaches that everyone talks about. Think memory foam sand. White, cushioned beaches with clear turquoise water. It was postcard pretty! We had a great time at the resort in Anguilla, and were glad we made the trip. We also got into some water sports and had a great time snorkeling on the beach and jet skiing. We rented a car at the airport and there was ample parking, and super easy to get around. I highly recommend getting a car and eating at some of the lolo's. Overall, our stay was a 20/10. We contemplated adding on another night; it was so difficult to leave.

    The best Gem on Saint Martin!!

    Wonderful stay at this beautiful property! The views and beach are gorgeous, loved waking up to the beach waves outside my balcony. The bed was super comfortable, and I absolutely loved the welcome rum and the special treat of Prosecco and macarons in the room. The grounds are immaculate. The hospitality/service at this place is top notch. Everyone is so friendly and helpful, big shout out to the front desk staff- Claude, Francois, Matthias, Sheldon. There was a small billing confusion at checkout and Matthias quickly sorted the whole matter out in seconds. Thank you Matthias and the staff at La Samanna for an amazing relaxing vacation. I hope to return again soon.

    Exceptional in St. Martin

    We returned again to LaSamanna and as usual she did not disappoint. Room, resort and facilities are exceptional. Service is what you would expect at a Belmond property - nothing short of fabulous. Restaurants continue to improve and it makes it hard to ever leave the property to try some of the fantastic restaurants elsewhere on the island!

    Ensure that your staff is knowledgeable about what is included in a particular stay.

    Ensure that your staff is knowledgeable about what is included in a particular stay. When I arrived at the front desk, I specifically asked about the inclusions for my stay and was told that breakfast was included every morning as well as the first round of the mini-bar. However, to my dismay, I later learned that breakfast was not included and I had to pay for it on a daily basis. Although this would not have been a problem if I had been informed earlier, it was disappointing to be told otherwise. When I went to the front desk to question this, I was informed that I could not receive a refund for my breakfast purchase. This was particularly frustrating since I was only requesting a refund for the first day’s breakfast when the confusion occurred. I would have been fine covering the cost for the subsequent days myself. This experience was quite disappointing and is the reason why I am not rating you five stars.
