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.

tripadvisor Traveler Reviews
  • 2-goodtimetravelers : Coeur d'Alene, Idaho
La Dumpo

The room was terrible! The commode cycled endlessly with a LOUD screech at the end of every filling cycle----no sleep possible. I reported the incident with no resolution. The bed was completely worn out----years past it's normal life span. So many nasty little bugs (I can forgive this a bit being a tropical location). Dirty!! please see the photos. The room had so many broken pieces that it bordered on dangerous. The location was excellent! The beach facilities were good and the beach services were good. The only complaint was the boardwalk from our room to the beach was in disrepair, you could easily pinch your foot or step on a loose screw. The Food was EXCELLENT! The service was also good.

Beautiful Beach and great dining, grocery in walking distance (1 block)!!!!

This hotel is situated on a beautiful beach and has a wonderful fresh water pool to lounge in when you tire of the bay. Our room was very comfortable (though a little outdated) and provided all the necessities to provide a home away from home. The hotel is in the process of updating rooms and the new updated rooms are WONDERFUL (worth the increase in price)! Located one block away from a wonderful grocery with anything you could want and then some. The staff was very friendly and helpful and addressed any issue we had immediately (and with a smile). We enjoyed it so much we plan to go back again this year!

Terrific stay!

La Playa did everything they could to make our one week stay a highlight trip. The friendly staff from reception, to restaurant, to the best beach bar in the Caribbean, to consistent house-keeping made our week a special memory.The Valentine Days specials in the restaurant were very good. This special hotel being located in the middle of Orient Beach made people watching a 'world class' event!

Enjoyable Stay

Just spent a week at La Playa and had a wonderful time. Hotel staff were very helpful and polite. The room itself was just okay. We sprung for the higher priced room, in the hopes that it had been updated, but unfortunately it was not. Bed was fine, but decor was worn. Everything in the bathroom worked, but was dark and dated. Beach location and amenities were also great. Very nice to be able to charge drinks, etc. to your room and not have to deal with cash. We would definitely stay here again.
