Mixed feelings.

Well, let's start with the positives. Great location next to Orient beach and assorted restaurants in the Orient Bay complex, nice expansive property, on site restaurant makes great lobster special dinner. Moving on to not so good, accommodations are in cottages each composed of 3-4 units most if not all have connecting doors. Fine if you are with a family otherwise you may exposed to listening to full blast sports network program through the door in early hours of the morning. Our room was rather dated with what looked like 80's vintage furniture. Arrived at the reception around 2.00 pm travelling from a neighbouring island, upon which an officious (if not arrogant) young man took a highlighter to our paper reservation underlining a sentence stating check in is 3:00 pm without even bothering to check if any units were free. Thankfully a female colleague rectified that. Have been coming to St. Martin for years but not sure if this is a return to property.

If you’re thinking of booking Esmeralda, do it. You won’t be disappointed

Happy to share this review. Sad I didn’t get to complete my trip here. When deciding on whether or not to book a property, I do read reviews. And then take them with a grain of salt. When I booked here, WestJet vacations had what I thought was a great package price for travelling on my March break from Canada. I read the reviews and when we arrived we were so happy with our choice. Upon arrival at the airport we located our prearranged transfer with WJV. It was just my husband and I in the van. The driver was very talkative and wondered why we had booked a property “way out here in orient bay? It’s too far”. I sensed then there may be a slight discord between the two countries that share the same island. When we arrived the reception was very welcoming. The property services employee was waiting with a golf cart to take us the short drive to our villa. We were from 513 which I would guess was in the middle of the property. He showed us around the room and how to work the tv and Clarke box. He also provided us with two adaptors as this was an oversight on my part. We quickly changed and made our way to the beach and village area. I absolutely fell in love with the quaintness and beauty of orient bay.
