Overview
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
  • Karin R :
Enjoy an excellent lunch and beautiful beach!

Walking along beautiful Orient Bay we came across La Playa. The beautiful turquoise theme colors and inviting outside bar and restaurant immediately grabbed our attention. Staff was friendly; rum punch was delicious and the lobster salad was fresh and tasty. The highlight was the tableside presentation of beef tartar. Prepared with the usual ingredients and a few surprises! Large enough to share! Excellent spot and the view is lovely!!!

Exceeded expectations

We have stopped in st Martin several times over the years by cruise ship and there is never enough time it seems because you have to get back to the ship on time . We have not been the type to actually fly into places like this because we enjoy adventuring but we finally said that's it we're going ! But where to stay ! We loved orient beach but looking at the map it looked so isolated and I read reviews about other places people really loved we hadn't tried . We said let's just go back to what we love . We loved being steps away from the sand , we loved our completely renovated junior suite room : equipped with a mini kitchenette , A/C works like an igloo , bed was super comfortable ( I seriously need to sleep on a comfortable bed ) Upon arrival check in was excellent. The staff is FANTASTIC from reception to the bar /restaurant. , which we enjoyed every day . The food is very good . There are water sports to rent and you can walk down this very wide beach and shop at a couple beachwear boutiques or have a drink and a bite to eat at another place on the beach . The sand is soft and the waves can get big . Families enjoy it but if I had young children they would really enjoy grande case beach club or Westin dawn beach where they have kids programs and the water is more of a calm shallow . There is also a small liquor store and a little market to shop as well steps away and we thought prices were very reasonable . You don't need a car if you stay here and you're not looking for non stop action , but we did rent a jeep which was fantastic. It's an easy drive to get around the island and visit every beach , you can't get lost there is 1 main road and signs everywhere of where to turn . At night is difficult to navigate because it is so dark . (Hertz was fantastic by the way to rent from. We booked online and when we left the airport hertz picked us up , their place was 2 min away and we were driving our rental away about 15 min later not kidding ) So we were able to stay where we wanted and just visit the other beaches . We still thought none compared and would rather stay at our beachfront la playa and walk out of our room barefoot than in a hotel with all the marble and glam ( that's for Miami :). We can't wait to go back !!! By the way at the time of this review they are still renovating other rooms and parts of the building that I hear won't be done until December so you may need to ask for a renovated room . I hope this review was helpful happy travels !

Nice place in a great location.

I'd go back there in a heartbeat. Very inexpensive in the summer and I don't know what the high season rates are, but my room was wonderful with a partial sea view. Nice breakfast served out by the beach and the staff was very friendly and helpful. Great french restaurants a few hundred yards away!

The staff is very speedy & friendly, room very spacious & well organized. The resort is recently remolded and the food is of VERY HIGH quality. Very friendly staff overall!I highly recommend & look forward to returning!!
