We absolutely loved staying at LaPlaya! It is overlooking the beach and conveniently located near lots of restaurants and a market. Breakfast daily was included. Going back in Nov. because we enjoyed it so much. Beach chairs and umbrella also included. Everyone was super friendly!

Loved, loved, loved everything about this property. The best way to experience the French side of St. Martin for sure! The staff, services, the beach…all excellent. The area reminds me of a quaint village where everything is walkable: restaurants, small shops, small grocery store. The breakfast at La Playa included typical French breads, fruits and juices while pancakes, eggs and meats were made to order; all while sitting on the beach, toes in the sand. Wait staff were friendly and helpful. Nespresso machine and pretty much a full kitchen in the room. We felt very safe and well taken care of. If you choose this hotel, definitely get an ocean view; worth every penny! My only regret is not booking more time there!

We had the most fabulous time at La Playa!! So quiet and peaceful yet steps away from amazing restaurants and night life. My only negative and it’s certainly not the fault of the staff or the hotel is that this time of year there was a LOT of sea weed that washes in on their beach. But I would highly recommend staying there and would go back in a heartbeat! Thank you for making our stay so enjoyable:)

La Playa Orient Bay
Service was exceptional. Everyone was super helpful and friendly, from making reservations/taxis to the servers at breakfast and the beach. Location is perfect. Right on the most beautiful beach on the island. Room was spacious and comfortable, and included a large fridge, microwave, stove, and all the plates/utensils you would need.
