Everything about this property was amazing....location....walking distance to beach, restaurants and grocery store.
The view was spectacular overlooking the mountains to one side and the bay to the other.
The room was very well appointed with a kitchen and nothing was amiss. everything was perfect.

I really appreciated how the hotel staff would take us and drop us off at places (beach, restaurants). This hotel is up a steep hill (which is why they have such a great view) and I was nervous about driving up and down. No problem! They took us everywhere, but even had a "room service" relationship with some restaurants where we could eat in our room. This is a very quiet, very relaxing getaway location in an area known for great food (Grand Case & classic French cuisine; why would you stay at an all-inclusive in this area???). I'm hoping to go back some day to truly enjoy it; we only spent one night here. Watch out for traffic though! What took 25 minutes to get there early in the morning can take over an hour to get back in traffic!
"Wonderful hotel close to the beach and fine dining"
This was a vacation for our 25th wedding anniversary - my wife and I wanted a very special time together and our expectations were far exceeded. The Alamanda was wonderful. The check in went very smooth. The breakfast in the morning was fresh and delicious. The staff was excellent. The room was very good - comfortable bed, clean, very nice size. The balcony was furnished and an excellent place to relax.
Fine dining was a 2 minute walk away. We ate at 2 of the restaurants - Cote Plages and Le P'tit Bistro. The food was excellent at both. The foie gras at Le P'tit Bistro was incredibly delicious!
The Orient Beach was also a minute walk away. The sand, surf, and water were the most beautiful we have ever seen. The time we spent on the beach together (about 6 hours each day) was awesome! The beach front had restaurants that served lunch and drinks all day. We ate lunch at Andy and Cheryl's. It was very good.
My wife got a pina colada at Kontiki - it was superb!
The atmosphere at the Orient Beach was completely relaxed and chill. People were cool and friendly. Totally hassle free!
The prices for beer, drinks, and food at the Orient Beach restaurants and bars were reasonable.
The vacation was like having the best of France and the Caribbean in one place - a paradise of sensual pleasures and an excellent way for a couple to celebrate their marriage!

My personal experience was great! This is a lovely resort and I would not hesitate to stay here again. I did not like that check in was not until 4:00 but since I read about this it was not a surprise just a little inconvenient. The bellboy will hold your luggage in a holding room while you wait for the room. So we took advantage of this, changed our clothes and headed to Toppers for lunch and to soak up the view! Once we were done with lunch we were able to get into our room.
We were located in Bldg 7, 3rd floor, room 7309 and were pleasantly surprised with an awesome view of the pool/ocean!! The room was huge with a full size kitchen, more than enough room for a couple.
My only complaints which I did NOT address with staff were the bathroom didn't look as clean as I'd like, toilet was very old looking, tiles in the shower needed super scrubbed, something was wrong with electricity and the clocks kept changing times which affected us one morning when we got up at 5 thinking it was 6 :( The door to open the balcony was extremely hard to open/shut, I had to have my husband do this. The tv reception wasn't the greatest but I'm not there to watch tv. Unfortunately I was never able to get the WIFI connection. It could have been something I was doing wrong but I decided I kind of enjoyed not having it so I didn't complain!
My favorite part of this room was being to watch the cruise ships come in the morning and leave in the evening.

Beautiful place to stay!! Staff are very friendly and attentive, Linzey especially made our stay easy and enjoyable. Rooms are very spacious and have every amenity one could need. Lovely gated facility provides safety and security. There are quite a few stairs if it's an issue get the first building. Newer buildings are the second building ask for a higher floor to get awesome view of St. Barths. Definitely recommend
Had an amazing two night stay pre time share week stay at another resort. But this is very pleasing to your sense's. the views are amazing from the infinity pool. They had free samples of wine and champagne. There are a few bars and restaurant's within walking distance.
