Fantastic hotel. Had to extend my visit to St. Martin due to hurricane Dorian and was sure glad we chose to stay at La Playa. The rooms are newly renovated and very well appointed. The entire staff from the front desk to the bar and restaurant staff were very welcoming and made our visit very pleasurable. They even taught my wife and I a little French while we were there. Cant wait to visit this wonderful resort again.

La Playa was clean, friendly, and wonderful. The staff were attentive. The hotel is walking distance to many shops and restaurants. The beach was amazingly with comfortable chairs. If I ever had a question, they had an answer. I couldn’t recommend more when visiting St Martin. We loved it!

Perfect Beach-Side Retreat!
We had a wonderful time at La Playa Orient Bay! The grounds are nicely landscaped in a charmingly tropical design and our room was spotlessly clean and well-appointed. Very comfy king-sized beds and the hidden kitchen was a pleasant surprise. (Completely contained behind cabinet doors was an ingenious use of space!) The staff is exceptional, very friendly and helpful with all our requests. The hotel sits on the best beach in St. Martin, no need to go anywhere else. As they continue to recover from the hurricane, I think it would be lovely if they could add additional beach bar hours. Perhaps 4pm-6pm (5pm-7pm?) happy hour with light bites to truly enjoy the remaining daylight hours. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and look forward to returning very soon.

We had a fabulous stay at La Playa. It's the perfect spot for a relaxing beach vacation. We loved having the complimentary breakfast right on the beach every morning. The beach was just gorgeous. We also liked that we could walk to the little town for dinner every night and had a handful of excellent restaurants to choose from. It's a simple place for the perfect relaxing vacation. The wait staff was incredibly friendly, and Damian went out of his way to get our son his favorite (sugar loaded) cereal every morning!

We had a unique arrival by boat, as there was civil unrest on the road from the Dutch to French side. But when we arrived, Kate and the staff made up for the inconvenience (which was completely out of their hands) and did their best to make our family’s stay perfect. Success! The staff is so kind and speaks several different languages. Many even made an effort to learn a little Portuguese to communicate with our large Brazilian / American family. We enjoyed the pool when the wind was too much on the beach. And two of our energetic family members enjoyed kitesurfing every day, at least once or twice per day. It’s a kite surfer’s paradise and a huge part of why we went. The complimentary breakfast includes eggs, which we weren’t expecting. An extremely pleasant surprise to have protein options and table service, when we were really only expecting some breads and breakfast beverages. The rooms are all brand new and perfectly modified for practical use: a pull out table in the breakfast nook. A microwave, refrigerator and stove make is possible to make food if you wish. However, we only did so occasionally. There are at least 6 restaurants within 3 minute walking distance of the resort. Every night we took our family to a new spot from Italian, to Asian, and of course, wonderful French cuisine. Also just a two minute walk to a small shop ( with everything you need) and a hair/nail salon. I suggest making an appointment, as opposed to walk in.
