The hotel was truely fabulous. The service was immaculate as were the amenities. Our room was beautiful and the view from the terrace on the roof top of the room was awe inspiring. We could not have been treated to a better experience. It will be a near impossible feat for a hotel in the future to come close to... More

This is an amazing property! Gorgeous, relaxing, friendly, and private. The infinity pool and Beach Bar are great and were super close to our room. Love the coffee/espresso maker in the room. Everything was magical.

Just got back from a four day trip. It's obviously a beautiful resort but I have to admit we were slightly disappointed with the level of service, especially it being low season and therefor not many guests at the resort. Pros: - Private Beach - Very nice and cozy Spa with super friendly French staff - Flawless concierge - Sweet... More

This hotel knows the meaning of excellent service. Our first room had a huge balcony in front and off to the side and elevated. The view of the ocean was blocked by trees, but you would think you are in the middle of a tropical forest because the landscaping is beautiful, green, punctuated with rock pieces, water, and meandering pathways...

We go to St Martin often for business and often combine with some fun. This is the best hotel on the island. It is well located--on the French side but very convenient to the Dutch side and it airport. It is beautiful--the entry is stunning and the cottages are well appointed. It is serene--no kids and no casino. If price... More

Wonderful long weekend trip to La Samanna in St Martin. The resort is beautiful. Our ocean front suite conveniently located near the Beach restaurant was fabulous.

A paradise in the Caribbean. The best beach in St. Martin is where the Hotel Belmond La Samanna is located. We stayed 6 days in a One bedroom Suite, equipped with a mini-kitchen, refrigerator, a comfortable king size bed, a cozy living and a terrace over the sea. Every day we enjoy sea baths as well as their Restaurant and... More
