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.

Hotel still needs some work

This hotel has a nice restaurant/bar right on the beach and a lot of beach chairs as well. However, none of the rooms are really viewing the beach and although they seem recently refurbished the maintaince and cleanliness level is still a bit poor (holes in the ceiling, ants and cockroaches). Rooms are also very noisy, it is possible to understand everthing the neighbours are saying which makes you very uncomfortable when you have two small kids who cry and scream sometimes. Kitchenette is also very very minimalistic: fridge, microwave, hotplate, two pans a few plates and cups but just 1 spoon and not even a sharp knife or a spatula. However, family rooms have two big kingsize beds which is nice for co-sleepers!

Lovely Beach Villa

We recently staped at La Playa in one of the top floor villas. Simple and clean, very roomy. The bed was very comfortable and we had a very nice balcony. Not directly on the beach, but a short walk to the LaPlaya beach bar and restaurant and the fabulous stretch of beach known as Orient Bay. Hotel is also a 1/2 block from a great cafe which served excellent croissant and cappuccino. In the same area was a very nice grocery that had an excellent selection of food, wine and champagne. We would definitely stay here again. There are no elevators, so if you need an accessible room ask for the main floor.

Overall a good choice

This was our second trip to St. Martin. Overall we were very pleased with our decision to stay here. The location is ideal. Our room was suprisingly much better than we expected and very well appointed. Housekeeping was excellent. The beach/restaurant operation is kind of hit and miss but overall not bad. Since you will spend most of your time here it is pretty critical to your overall stay. The guys that rake the beach every morning to an amazing job of clearing out what little seaweed washes ashore. Patrick, one of the bartenders is amazing as were all the bartenders. The beach service team needs better training. On our first day we got very frustrated with the young black gentlemen who was much more interested in chatting with the staff and his friends that after long waits for a drink or food we found it much less frustrating to just walk to the bar and get them ourselves unless another beach server was around. Our biggest complaint was that they don't tell you that you can't tip in anything but cash and the nearest ATM is 10 minutes away by car. So bring plenty of cash with you.

La Playa ( Heaven )

Just returned from a 7 night stay at La Playa. Having been traveling to SXM for the past 10 years, I have to say I love this small boutique style hotel. Its small, but that's the best part. You get to know the entire staff in a matter of days.Located on the beach ( can be windy at times ) it has easy access to a small group of restaurants just off the hotel property. If you really want something special, be sure to book one of the renovated rooms. You wont be disappointed, Kate and her team do a magnificent job. Happy New Year to La Playa :)
