I usually stay at Four Seasons resorts, but since St. Martin didn't have one, and I booked with short notice, I stayed at the Westin. Everyone was SO nice. The check in person, kept apologizing that our room wasn't ready, even though we arrived early. When it was ready, he then searched the hotel looking for us ( and found us) to give us our keys.
While at the pool, a manager came up and asked if we needed anything and was super nice.
The concierge, Fran, made our trip so enjoyable! Her suggestions were spot on for what we wanted to do. She picked out restaurants that were great, got us free beach chairs at all the beaches we went to, told us where to go to shop, and was so nice.
"Nice resort, clean, walking distance to the beach"
Very nice location, clean, we had everything we needed in the room.
The beach was at walking distance very good.
The only thing what was not working so well was the internet.
We will recommend this hotel very much.
We had a wonderful vacation.

"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!

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!
Beautiful, beautiful, beautiful xxx
Staff were very friendly, hotel was lovely, very clean. Swimming pools were lovely, bars and restaurants very adequate. Right on the beach, perfect to listen to sea at night. Entertainment was very good. Beautiful sunsets. Lots of water sports. Time share properties were amazing, very close to buying one! Friendly parrot on site wondering around the resort. Beautiful hammocks by one of the pools with a super size chess board. Infinity pool. Jacuzzis dotted around the resort. Magnificent views. White sands and clear surf...just perfect! Close to town with many restaurants, shops and entertainment. Opportunity to go on many excursions and day trips including trips to Anguilla and nearby Caribbean Islands. Chances to experience the French side of the Island. Fresh fruit, fresh food and lots of good humour. Christmas carols reggae style! Listened to a steel band on the beach in the Caribbean while the sun was setting. Snorkelling and scuba diving is just another whole experience on this Island, waters are so warm. Caribbean church services are an amazing experience and BBQ's on the beach. Fresh fish caught and BBQ's on the beach. Nearby cruise terminal so lots of tourists in the town. Good healthcare...I ended up having to go to the medical centre for urgent antibiotics for a severe tooth infection and they were excellent.The mosquitos did enjoy eating me but this did not affect my holiday at all. Got another holiday booked up for next year :-)
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.

The hotel is very nice, the rooms are very convenient, and the atmosphere of the place is great. The property is very well kept. The restaurant is a bit pricey.
There are a lot of restaurants walking distance away. The beach is very wavy, and not good for swimming.
