How to Get There
We spent a few days on St Martin prior to travel to St Barth. We had stayed at La Plantation a few years ago prior to a Windjammer Cruise. As a repeat guest they upgraded our room, gave us a 25% discount and a bottle of vanilla rum. It is well located above Orient Bay. An easy walk to the beach or restaurants and bars in the village. The rooms are large and well decorated and private. The breakfast buffet included in the price has good variety - meat, cheese, eggs, breads, fruit, etc. We also enjoyed drinks at the bar and dinner one night. Wifi was available in the office/pool/restaurant area only and cable TV was not available due to Irma. We were advised of this prior to our travel. The area is still recovering and damage can be seen, but it was still a pleasant stay for us.
The hotel is not a 4* for an European but it was ok for 8 days. Room was big enough. Cleanliness could be improved. Mosquitos were terrible! The net didnt really help! We had some lizards and they removed them. Orient Bay Beach was a BIG DECEPTION! Full of seaweed... just disgusting! So we often drove to Mullet Bay (awesome!). Having a car is a must. Pool area was nice. Breakfast ok, nothing especial. Staff kind of unfriendly. Dinner at restaurant overpriced and just average. Unexperienced staff who try to sell you everything. Wouldn't visit this hotel anymore but I feel so sorry for them since Irma just destroyed everything :(
thanks again for another great stay....the rooms were clean, the staff was friendly and helpful and the food was excellent...I've stayed here many times now and it's always been excellent....La Plantation is a refined hotel with an experienced staff and they know how to make your stay a memorable one...my only issue has nothing to do with the La Plantation but with my fellow Americans...there's a great beach nearby....a well-kept secret so i won't name it...but this beautiful beach has a more sophisticated crowd populated with diverse and older people...you'll hear many languages spoken there...lately though, some people, mostly Americans and usually younger ( I know because I spoke with them) , have been playing their music on the beach for all to hear....please, please, please use headphones and don't subject others to your style of music...can we Americans start showing the same consideration for others that people from other countries do?...Back to La Plantation- thanks again for another great stay !!!
This is a very charming hotel with a true colonial style. The rooms are spacious and the view over the tropical gardens is fantastic. This is the place to relax and rewind.
Eventhough you will find everything in a walking distance I suggest that you rent a car and explore the island. You will find that the locals are very friendly and happy to help you if you have lost your way. We really enjoyed this place and as a bonus it is reasonably priced.
We visit St. Martin once or twice a year and have previously stayed at Hotel La Plantation. The hotel staff, including housekeeping, are the friendliest in Orient Bay. However, the hotel seemed to be run down this time, with a lot of chipping paint and decay. Rooms on the left have a beautiful view of the rooftops, the bay and islands out in the distance. You can see the windsurfers from the balcony. Rooms are clean, kind sized bed was very comfortable. We had the buffet breakfast each morning at the restaurant and it was well prepared with many options. It was a traditional European breakfast buffet. Internet service which was free was terrible. I probably would not stay again until this was updated.
