My husband and I had been looking forward to visiting the GCBC for over a year. Covid had kept us away so we were very distressed when we learned that the CDC had put St. Martin on a "Do Not Visit" list. We struggled to make up our minds so I sent an email to GCBC, hoping for guidance. I received an almost immediate response from Laura who addressed my concerns but put no pressure on us. In fact, she said our deposit would be refunded if we chose not to come. I am so glad that we decided to take a chance. GCBC was as wonderful as ever..well run, clean, friendly staff. We did notice a few minor changes which probably came from the financial challenges imposed by a hurricane followed by covid. We didn't mind that the room was only cleaned every other day. Stephan Wright and his staff have done a wonderful job of maintaining all the positive aspects. We had a wonderful time and appreciate it very much

Just finished an 11 night stay at GCBC. We had first visited the property back in the early 90s pre-kids and revisited just now with the last of 4 having graduated college this past May. My wife and I stayed in room 709 which is a deluxe ocean facing suite. Rooms were big especially the upstairs bedroom and bathroom. The 700 building faces the Petit Plage beach which is a little bigger, sand wise, and also very close to the bar, restaurant and pool. All of the staff were very friendly, especially Gary. We had a car which is needed if you plan to do more than just walk to Grand Case which we also did many times. There was a security guard who was patrolling the road from the hotel to downtown Grand Case at night. I am not sure who employed him but we did get to know him from our frequent trips into town for dinner. Would highly recommend GCBC for a relaxing stay whch was much needed after the last 18 months.
Wonderful people and spacious accommodation

We (family of 4 with kids 18 & 16) took an approximate 20-minute taxi (55 Euros) from the airport to GCBC. Our taxi driver-for no additional cost- stopped at Super U on the way so we could buy groceries. We were warmly greeted and shared laughs with the reception staff. Literally every employee was friendly and welcoming and enhanced our stay. We booked a 2-bedroom, ocean view room- 711. The kids loved their spacious room, bathroom, and balcony. View was incredible. The kitchen area was well stocked for casual meal prep. Coffee was provided. I love a bone-chillingly cold room— this place has GREAT ac. Three t.v.s. Overall very clean; housekeeping did miss some dust bunnies. The cafe, which we enjoyed several times, divides the beach into 2 sections. Both are great. One has only a few lounge chairs, as the water is close to the sea wall. Perfectly placid and crystal-clear, turquoise sea. Gated access to property. My son used the small gym and liked it (5 Euros per day). Great boardwalk with incredible viewpoints, chairs. We felt safe walking 10-15 minutes into town for dinner. A few things kept me from rating GCBC a 5. Some of the towels, while clearly laundred, had small stains on them. One of the bed top sheets had a hole. The hair dryer had a very sticky handle with someone else’s hair stuck all over it; when I reported this a new one was delivered ASAP. The lock on the sliding door in the living room was broken; when reported, we were told it was ok because it was the second floor. There were several cute cats roaming the property; when we entered the pool area, there was feces on the concrete. The public areas and grounds would benefit from attention. Landscaping or flowers of some sort, paint touch ups, etc. My kids have stayed in some very nice properties over the years and loved this place. I’d stay again for them and I’d enjoy the people, views, and incredible water.
Nothing Short of Amazing!

From start to finish the resort was awesome! The people in the resort office were extremely friendly and welcoming, the room was clean and modern, the grounds were constantly being cleaned and the water was amazing! Great experience...and we'll definitely be back.
An amazing trip to paradise

Decided to book a trip as a present to myself and my boyfriend for graduating graduate school and we were so happy with our choice. It was an amazing stay at the GCBC; the service was very kind, the bar and restaurant staff were so great, and all together everyone we encountered there were very nice. My boyfriend has a lot of food allergies, that could be very detrimental, but Saverio at the Sunset Cafe was always cautious when it came to us ordering our food. The hotel room itself was very clean, the resort was very quiet, and it was the perfect getaway from the craziness that is going on right now.
