Hotels in St. Maarten/St. Martin

The hotels in St. Maarten, the Dutch side, tend to be larger, mega-resorts and time shares, while the hotels in St. Martin, on the French side, are as a rule smaller and more intimate. Travel + Leisure readers have often rated the La Samanna as one of the best hotels in St. Maarten in the annual World's Best survey. Its location on Baie Longue (perhaps the island's most beautiful beach) places it halfway between the nightlife on the Dutch and the shopping and restaurants on the French side. The 81-room resort's Restaurant is also famous for its innovative French-Caribbean cuisine; reserve a table either on the terrace overlooking the ocean or in the expansive wine cellar (for private dining, by prior arrangement). A smaller option among the hotels in St. Maarten is Mary's Boon Beach Plantation which has 28 rooms painted in a gingerbread building in bright Caribbean colors, with cathedral ceilings and carved Balinese beds. Ask for a garden studio, which opens onto coconut-laden palm trees and flowering hibiscus. The hotel is close to the airport, but rather than bemoan the noise, guests have turned plane-spotting into an activity.
