A Great StayPosted Jul 8, 2014
Pros: The ambience, great rooms and friendly staff.
Location: Just outside of Marigot and near to Cupecoy there are great beaches and stores nearby. A long drive to Phillipsburg - but we didn't want to go there.
Overall this was a very satisfying stay. The staff was friendly and the facilities were great. One or two small service glitches (50 minutes to wait for ice) didn't detract from a very nice experience. Our junior suite was virtually on the beach and was perfect for us. Room was large, spacious, bright and clean. The little kitchenette was a great part of the room and allowed us to have breakfast, snacks, drinks etc. in our room or the very nice patio.

Beautiful facility setting and beachPosted Jun 29, 2014
Pros: Beautiful, well maintained and clean.
Cons: Food quality and food service
About half the food and beverage staff were disinterested in doing their jobs, very slow, unattentive and aloof, while the other half were very friendly and accomodating. Food and beverages were pricey, but was to be expected. Food was very good, but certainly not exceptional. Office, room service and grounds keepers all friendly and accomodating. Would recommend to friends but alert them as to what to expect as to the shortcomings.

Amazing hotelPosted May 9, 2014
I highly recommend La Samanna to all. It is a mere 12 minute drive from the airport and on a private 2-mile beach which is spectacular. The staff couldn't be nicer and the views were breathtaking. The beach is serene and secluded. The water crystal clear and they have plenty of activities right off the beach. The drinks were a bit pricey. We ate at local restaurants so can't comment on the food. They supplied one outlet with a built in transformer which was great for charging devices. Free wifi in rooms and on the beach. Only negative was the bed was not the most comfortable and especially the pillows!!! I would definitely recommend they invest in some softer pillows! Overall, such a wonderful trip and I would go back in a heartbeat. Thank you to all the staff!

Hotel LuxuryPosted Apr 22, 2014
Pros: Staff and view.
Cons: The bathroom in our room was not cleaned properly.
Location: The perfect location on the beach. Very close to a number of great restaurants. You must try Marios Bistro.
Hotel was beautiful, the staff was helpful and courteous, and the room was excellent.

Beautiful, peaceful and comfortablePosted Apr 7, 2014
Pros: The atmosphere , the location , the beaches and the restaurants.
Cons: The room size was a bit small for us
La Samanna is a beautiful hotel in a beautiful location . It's quiet and peaceful. Only heard the sound of the ocean in the daytime as well as the night. (meaning never even heard another guest shut a door ) The staff was Very respectful as well as other guests during our stay. The only downside for me was that our room was a bit small for me and it was expensive . I still enjoyed every minute of our stay and would return to La Samanna again in the future!

Beautiful boutique hotel by the waterPosted Nov 18, 2013
Location: A complimentary shuttle would have been a nice touch to go to nearby places. Taxis are very expensive....
Beautiful boutique hotel. Staff was friendly enough but did not necessarily go out of their way. Rooms were nice and clean, nice amenities. Pool area and attendants were great probably my fav part. Food was OK. Gorgeous views of the water. Even though its in St Martin, was expecting some Caribbean feel, food and general flavor to the place but resort is very french.

Excellent St Marteen HotelPosted Aug 18, 2013
Pros: Beachfront, snorkeling, staff/service, drinks, food, accommodations -- all excellent. Location close by to casinos, restaurants, shopping.
Cons: Nightlife (limited; need cab or car rental to get anywhere), drink and food prices (expensive).
Location: You'll need a cab/car to enjoy nightlife. Cabs cost min $20USD (plus small tip). Restaurants, casinos, shopping all very close by.
La Samanna is not too arguably the nicest hotel in St Marteen. It's located in the "Beverly Hills" area of the island, just over the Dutch/French border. Convenient to the airport (just ~10 minute drive), La Samanna is nicely secluded. The hotel has its own secure beachfront. The room we stayed in (a deluxe ocean suite, second story) had an amazing view of the water and was also close by to the beach bar/restaurant. The grounds are also beautiful. Pros: Secluded, secure beach with clear, blue waters and fine white sand. Excellent snorkeling right on beach. Waters have plenty of fish and some nice rock formations. Hotel provides gear for free. Water sports (wave running, jet skiing, etc) also available. Excellent beach bar with plenty of food and drink choices. Accommodating, friendly staff all around - desk, bar, restaurant, housekeeping. Onsite fitness center, business center, spa. Beautiful, secure grounds.

First time at LaSamanna-loved it-would recommendPosted Jul 16, 2013
Pros: The Room
Cons: Options for room service (limited menu)
Location: Great location - secluded but close the restaurants, shops, port, casinos - everything.
First time at this resort. One of the best on the island. Great location, extremely friendly and helpful staff, resort is kept up to a 5 star, therefore no chance of being disappointed when you book a 5 star and stay at LaSamanna.
