A cosmopolitan clientele and youthful ambience characterize this hotel, set two minutes from famous Orient Beach on the French side of the island. L'Hoste prides itself on its small-scale elegance, which is evident in the delightful rooms with their chalet-style ceilings. Enjoy signing privileges at four restaurants along the beach, all within easy walking distance.

Perfect for couples and adults.

This was a fantastic place for my gf and I to stay on our vacation in SXM. Located directly on the beach it has everything you need for a perfect beach day. Food. Fun. Sand. Clear blue water. Multiple bars. Umbrellas. Cushioned beach chairs. Great staff. Parasailing. Jet skis. Snorkel. Restaurants. We arrived an hour early for check-in and the staff upgraded us to a private cabana. It was just what we needed to get away. Everything was easy, and that's an important thing when on vacation. For our beach days we had everything we needed and more. And when we wanted to explore the staff was more than accommodating with helping us set up taxis and day trips. There is some renovations happening on the property, but it didn't bother us at all. My only suggestions are: bring a mosquito net for the bed at night, lots of bug spray, and don't count on the wifi as it was in-and-out at best. The wifi at the beach bar was much better. American families be warned, you are on a "Euro" style beach and within walking distance of a fully nude beach.

Ideal Boutique Hotel

I recently stayed at La Playa for five days in connection with my daughter's destination wedding. I cannot think of one area that needs improvement in this amazing, exotic boutique hotel. The recently renovated Premier Junior Suite was aesthetically hip, with it's high end design, and truly more comfortable than home!The property consists of tropically colored small buildings, which are private and soundproof. All lead quickly to the amazing beachfront restaurant bar area. Every employee seems dedicated to the enjoyment of the patrons from around the world. The restaurant area is open air, and the comfy, included beach chairs and umbrellas are ready and waiting and plentiful early in the morning. Fabulous food and drinks are available all day.It was SO difficult returning to reality. I would need another long post to include all the raves about the wedding and the fine employees who made it unforgettable.

An absolutely dreamy wedding week!

My husband and I just returned from an eight day stay at La Playa for our wedding week. Katy and the entire La Playa crew were warm and welcoming, providing a level of service that was above and beyond. Our newly renovated room was cool and comfortable, and big enough to entertain friends in the evenings. The beachfront on Orient Bay can't be beat. Everything you'd need from bars, restaurants and cafes to a well stocked market are all steps away from the property. Thanks again, Katy! Our stay at La Playa made for an absolutely dreamy wedding week!

Wonderful vacation

Just returned home from an 8 day stay. Room was clean and housekeeping always kept it clean. Katy and the the rest of the staff at the reception desk were all very helpful with any requests and helping with excursion bookings. We had breakfast every morning and it was excellent. There was a special dinner on Friday and we had had a great time. We didn't have an updated room, but will definitely come back and look forward to staying in the updated rooms.

Nice Hotel Steps From The Beach

The facilities aren't new but, then again, it's not tattered and torn. My wife and I have been going there for a number of years and have gotten to know the friendly staff. We enjoy La Playa's nearness to the beach and being only steps away from a Plaza that offers a good number of restaurant of varying cuisines.We really like La Playa!
