Wife and I just returned from a one week trip to St. Martina. We stayed at Alamanda and loved it. The location is amazing. We had an ocean view room, overlooking the pool. All rooms come with great views. The resort is quiet, but located between 2 great beach bars. It's also right next to the village, which offers great dining with an authentic European feel. One of our favorite things was the outdoor breakfast area at Alamanda. Great atmosphere, lovely place. Our only complaint is very minor, but the mattresses were similar to what we've gotten in Europe, but not nearly as comfortable as what most are used to in the states. But that was a minor thing. We will definitely stay hear again! Had a blast and met so many nice people. Can't wait to do it again!

"Located in a good location and far from tourists"
For me the best thing of this hotel is the location and the staff. Orient bay is one of the best beaches around St. maarteen and to be able to walk out your room and have the beac so near is a great thing. However it does need an update on the pool and the rooms. The pool is wear out and it was kind of dirty and we even found dead crab. The bedroom was very spacious but the bed was very uncomfortable and outdated.
Finally as for the restaurant La Playa the continental,breakfast was good but the lunch was not and neither was the attention from the waitress.
Overall it was an average hotel but not too bad ....
just a great place too stay , every thing about this hotel is good , if you want a place thats well run and clean , close to the beach and local shops , with all the facilities you need for a chill out holiday , this is the place for you ! the room i had was on the ground floor , which i was happy with , had every i needed a small kitchen tv , a large bed a nice bathroom , and seating for eating and relaxing , and aircon and wifi which worked well , simon and his team were very friendly and there to help if needed , as a single traveler , its not allways easy to find a place that offers the comfort and space and cleanliness , this hotel does , its not a big hotel , but big in comfort and service , well done to simon and his team , martytn bisatt

We enjoyed this location because we were centrally located in the Orient Bay village.
Our Villa offered a beautiful view from the deck and private pool area. We were able to be as
active or lazy as we chose. We enjoyed meals in our Villa as well as many of the Orient Beach village
restaurants Le Pimente,Le Tableau Antoine etc. which were a short walk away. Grande Case and
Ile Pinel are also very close for exploring
