Nice place to stay and very very clean! Very friendly staff also! Only thing I didn’t like there’s not many restaurants close enough to walk to. Other than that ,highly recommend!

It's clean, quiet and friendly with a very accommodating staff. There's a grocery store just down the street and a great restaurant a couple blocks away. It's just a little off the beaten path which is a good thing. There's a small school near by and we could hear the kids singing.

Nice place to stay
L'Esperance is a lovely hotel, very comfortable and clean. We stayed only one night prior to a sailing trip on St. Martin. I enjoyed the pool. It was a short walk to Mark's restaurant that had delicious food. The staff was very pleasant and accommodating for our group of eight.

Reasonable priced. Staff is friendly and helpful. This hotel is off the beaten tourist track. We stayed here one night before boarding a self chartered sailboat, and we stayed another night after returning from our charter before going to airport to return home. This worked well for us because we were not really interested in other tourist attractions.

We only stayed there one night but we enjoyed it. Clean and nice. Close to grocery shopping and local small restaurants.

L’Esperance is a hidden gem. We were only there for two nights prior to our timeshare stay at the Divi and the place was great. The staff - Xite and Makesha- were wonderful. I would highly recommend!

Great deal for a short stay
We enjoyed our stay here. The hotel is clean, unpretentious and located in a residential neighborhood that is just a couple of miles away from the hustle and bustle of Philipsburg.

We liked everything it was handy to grocery and eateries. After being a avid traveler since 1979 this was likely the most clean and staff the most friendly and helpful.
