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 washe...

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 ... Read more

We came here for a beach day a week ago and had an amazing day. The staff is very friendly and helpful and makes your experience fun. We had beers and lunch here and then rented a chair. The lunch was amazing. High quality food with some special touches. I would highly recommend.

If you are all about partying till the sun comes up, then head over to the Dutch side. But if you are looking to relax, enjoy the sun, be served drinks on the beach and lose all of your stress, then head to La Playa Orient Bay. Our room was newly remodeled in a gorgeous minimalist design. Beautiful and functional built in kitchen, large fridge, complete cooking and dinner ware, etc. Hotel grounds were trash anywhere. The hotel staff was extremely nice and friendly. Loved having c... Read more

La Playa hotel in Orient Bay has everything you need for a first class vacation on Orient Beach! This hotel is located near the middle of Orient Bay and is set back no more than a few hundred yards from the beach. The staff at this property are second to none. They were very friendly, eager to help, and very accommodating. The hotel is under new ownership. Many visitors to the island that return every year know Bruno from Dreams and Le Petit Casino as well as Thomas from L'Astrolabe. This ... Read more

I originally booked elsewhere in Orient Bay, but was so displeased with my room that I chose to search for other options. Early on Thursday morning, I ran into Katy, the assistant director of La Playa. Despite the busy morning, she eagerly showed me an available room which had recently been updated. The room was fresh, clean, and bright. It was modern and cleverly designed, covering a full kitchenette behind a closet-like exterior. The shower was bright and big with a wonderful rainshower h...

We started staying here in 2010 and have never been disappointed in our room or the staff. They are currently undergoing refurbishing and we were the first ones to stay in a room completely renovated. It was perfect...they have obviously taken time to make sure all your needs are met when staying with them. We cant praise the staff enough. They are friendly and always willing to help with any questions or needs. Maria (one of the ladies on staff) actually went to her home and brought her pe... Read more

This was a trip scheduled many years ago. I talked my wife into it and stayed here. The hotel is located midway between the north and south ends of the beach. We chose this location due to distance from the beach. There were lots of opportunities to stay further away but we chose close. The accommodations were OK and sufficient for our needs. We lost water for a day and were given keys to hotel rooms on the next property. Got up early and took walks on the beach before all the music and peopl... Read more

Nice quiet spot on Orient Beach between two busy clubs (Waikiki and Bikini). Nice menu with a good selection of tapas and a delicious club sandwich. Great spot to lounge, lunch and people-watch. Chairs and umbrellas available as well as water sports.
