Orient Beach area small hotel
Posted Feb 8, 2016
Wonderful staff and breakfast (continental style with fresh croissants, baguette, fruit salad, yogurt, etc. by pool). OK room, large but no easy chair or couch, Direct access to pool (small but seemed very clean). Gated parking was good. Walk to beach, about 5 min, and some arrangement for beach chair if wanted, we did not use. Restaurants nearby in Village seemed good, maybe not great. The grounds are very grown in with palms and greenery, which is great, but unless wind is up, becomes a bit warm and stuffy. Orient Beach area is far form Margot and airport, so car or rather expensive cab ride needed. With car, easy to get to Grand Case or even Philipsburg. Beach area is very sports driven, fun to watch, many swimmers. Room had cooking area, so if you wanted to make lunch or simple dinner it is possible. There is a modest store in village. We picnicked a couple times. Problem is finding hotel, since Google map is wrong. Need to toke Orient Beach Hotels exit.
