Good, bad, uglyPosted Sep 22, 2013
Pros: On the beach
Cons: 1. The hotel needs a major renovaton - top to bottm. The locaton is prime - a makeover is needed 2. Nightly DJ and warm food would have been nice
Location: Orient beach is very nice. Good restaurants that were opened. Not much else - get a car
1. September is "Low" season, any most of the shops and restarurants are closed. Woul have been nice to know that. 2. L'Hoste is well past its prime - needs more than a coat of paint, however, it has a certan charm - and when you take in accoun that much of St. Martin is a 3rd world country, its not so bad. We had to change rooms 2x (first room had rust colored hot water, and 2nd room was very musty) 3. Beach is near perfect - would have been better to have some reef for snorkling right off the beach like in Punta Cana - but in all a very nice beach. 4. Rent a CAR - dont get stuck sittng in any hotel area. Roads are narrow, and locals drive like there are NO rules - but everone seemed friendly enough. 5. Food was very good - Never had a bad meal - for the Restaurants open at Orient beach, and aroud the island - not a bad meal was found. 6. Woud recommend an Iberostar all incluive over St Martin - but after a week,it started growing on us. 7. Would we go back - Yes and No - so Maybe. Would rater try St. Barths next time.

Great hotel for a family.Posted Apr 12, 2013
Our room was a bit shabby, but the overall ambience of the place was great. We loved the location on Orient Beach and started each day with a walk on the beach (it is an eyeful for children as some of the guests of the nude resort at the end of the beach also walk the length of the beach in the morning in their birthday suits!) and then a swim in the sea followed by a swim in the modest but clean and lovely and warm pool. Breakfast was included and adequate. The staff was friendly. The vibe of the beach club (La Playa) was upbeat and lively. A few steps away are a small grocery store, an ice cream shop, and a few novelty shops. In the evening the beach clubs shut down, but there is a courtyard about 25 yards away with fabulous restaurants and some nights live music. We rented a car and explored the island each day but loved our home base at L'Hoste!

Lovely older hotel, right on the beachPosted Apr 10, 2013
We have been to L'Hoste four years running, and have always loved it--despite it getting a bit worn in the grounds and the rooms. It is a lovely old hotel right on the beach--that is under new management--and is improving all around. The grounds and back garden are now cleaned up, the new manager Katy, is lovely, warm and wonderful, and plans are in place to renovate the kitchen areas of the rooms. We will return each year.
