Orient Beach is the most magnificent beach I have ever played in.It is warm,the waves are playful,the sun is strong, the beach is great to walk on.This property has direct access to this beach.However, the beach bar which would connect the beach to the hotel is under-construction so currently there is no real beach place with chairs,umbrellas,bar,a place to hang out associated with this resort.You have to walk down the beach to another area with beach chairs which you can use for the day with your Esmeralda Pass.I had a car and that was wonderful because I just drove to the beach,through the neighborhood,to the beach access:Bikini Beach.There I could sit for free on the second row of beach chairs and umbrellas.The first row of beach chairs with the unencumbered ocean view cost $20/day.I could also use my Esmeralda resort pass to pay for all drinks and food there.So that was convenient.There are no signs on the island to direct a person to this resort. It is located in Parc dOrientale: a gated community. It appeared very safe.The breakfast food was disappointing: the site stated free breakfast.That was a small bowl of fresh fruit and very small croissants.There was a menu so that you could order eggs,etc and pay a la carte.I found the eggs inconsistent so I ate breakfast in the Orient Beach shopping area.The food was exceptional in this shopping area/plaza.Many restaurant choices.Mr. Rogers was a front desk manager who was professional and helpful.

First time after Hurricane Irma
Our deluxe room was very large and bright, with high ceilings and spacious closets it had been recently renovated. The breakfast that was included in the room price was a basic continental, but you could order eggs and pancakes for a reasonable extra fee. They had and agreement with three beachfront bars, so you could get beach chairs and umbrellas for free. The property has access to the Orient Bay beach. We would highly recommend Esmeralda to family and friends and stay there again if we go back to St Martin.

Buerger’s Annual Caribbean Vacation
My husband and I were on a romantic Caribbean vacation for the week. We travel often but this was our first time to St. Martin. We had a great time! The food all over the Island was the best that we have ever had! And that says a lot considering how much we travel. There was one employee at the Esmeralda who was exceptional and totally stood out to us and was so helpful and wonderful. Her name was Mildred but Unfortunately we were unable to tell her how much we appreciated her because she wasn’t working the day we left. We left her an envelope with a tip, and I hope she got it! Mildred is wonderful!!!My only negative feedback about the hotel was that the route to the beach is somewhat off putting. While the path from the hotel is very nice, the area where it ends to the beach is pretty bad and not reflective of the hotels image. While we do understand that rebuilding is still going on after the hurricane in 2017 this area could be a little more cleaned up and more inviting for customers. Also it’s a little dangerous with all the glass and debris scattered about. The seaweed could be cleaned up as well as there is a lot of it that you have to walk through to get to the water.Overall we had a great trip and would definitely come back!
