5 Out of 5-Stars “Perfect, low-key Island Getaway”
"We stayed at Esmeralda Resort for 9 nights and quickly became spoiled by the distance we were from Coco Beach. It is well worth paying for the Ocean front room for the view and the short walking distance to the beach.
The resort is within walking distance to Bord de Plage, Orient Bay where we were able to purchase juices, milk, pastries and snack items. Most stores accept dollars and Euros at a 1:1 ratio. The area also features clothing boutiques and restaurants ranging from Thai cuisine to French and Spanish.
The room was very spacious and featured a tile floor throughout. The bathroom was very nice and featured a smaller room for the commode making the shower accessible. The air conditioning was excellent and maintained our room at a comfortable temperature. The room also featured a small kitchenette that had a microwave, mini fridge, sink, coffee maker and dishes for two people. The continental breakfast featured french pastries, juices, milk, coffee and fruit, but they do offer a breakfast menu for an additional cost. Overall, the staff was very nice and helpful.
Room Tip: Ocean front room is closest to the beach. Very comfy, king size bed."
(L.P. Reynolds 'Couple' Los Angeles, CA July 2015)
5 Out of 5-Stars “Awesome Place For Our Group”
"We had a group of nine so this place was perfect. We rented the entire Villa (villa 55 and it was the most private that I could tell) so that gave us a pool all to ourselves. The restaurant on sight was excellent and the beach bar was a blast! It was situated close to many things on the beach that you could walk to. If you needed a taxi I found the best guy on the whole island, Big Al of Big Time Taxi. He was amazing and took us everywhere. If you aren't looking for the Ritz and want a good clean place to stay where the entire staff was so nice and the place is close to everything than this is your place."
(DRL Traveler w/Friends July 2015)

5 Out of 5-Stars “Esmeralda Resort, a great place”
"We spent a week here. Check-in and out was very simple. The staff was informative but left us alone without bugging us to buy this or that. We usually stay at time-shares during previous visits to St Martin so that's what we had to compare this visit to.
We had a "superior king room" which included a continental breakfast. Each building of 4 rooms had its own private pool. We found we were the only room to use the pool as others spent their day on Orient Beach. Orient Beach was a short walk down a paved walkway.
Esmeralda provided a meal card to charge against and restaurants on Orient Beach honored the card as well as the on-site restaurant. The room was cleaned everyday and we were provided clean towels/linens everyday. The pool was cleaned/scrubbed once during our stay and it was super clean.
We decided not to rent a car as everything was very close. Cab ride to/from SXM airport was $30-35. We discovered a convenience store a short walk away where we bought beer, wine, and cheese. We had a very restful relaxing week and would highly recommend this resort."
(Billy E. a Couple June 2015)
5 Out of 5-Stars Very Good!
We had three rooms in the same bungalow, private pool and secure (we travel with a child under two years). Beautiful beach, in front of Restaurant super nice hotel on the beach. Clean rooms, wifi ok. The only downside may be the breakfasts, good but certainly very simple. We recommend this hotel, it was heavily involved in very successful holiday.

Hotel Rooms & Suites
St Martin's luxurious Esmeralda Resort is only minutes to fine dining, shopping and entertainment in Grand Case and Marigot. The resort offers quiet and elegant lodgings set amid tropical gardens with colorful bougainvillea, hibiscus and softly swaying coconut trees.
For those who appreciate casual sophistication, we introduce the Esmeralda Resort, a boutique Caribbean hideaway. Esmeralda features luxurious villa-style accommodations nestled on St. Martin's famous Orient Bay Beach.
Enjoy gourmet dining on site at Astrolabe restaurant, lunch & cocktails at Coco Beach Bar. Have the concierge arrange water sports at concessions along the 1.8 mile white sandy beach.
Esmeralda features 65 elegantly decorated rooms and suites, distributed within 18 villas. Each villa has its own private swimming pool with internal Jacuzzi pump and its own private entrance and terrace...
Guests may reserve anything from a single superior or deluxe room or a generous sized suite, a luxurious Presidential Suite, or an entire 3 - 5 bedroom villa.
Due to the way the resort is situated on the property (perpendicular to the beach) only two villas are ocean front and both include a Presidential Suite, connecting ocean front rooms + two deluxe rooms.
What makes this property special is its unique colonial architecture and plantation style layout with only three or four rooms or suites per villa.
All superior, deluxe and ocean front rooms & superior suites include kitchenettes. Deluxe & Presidential suites offer full kitchens and living rooms. Guests enjoy the peaceful surroundings and a cordial, pampering yet unobtrusive on-site multi-lingual staff with 24 hour front desk, prepared to assist with any special needs.
5 Out of 5-Stars “EXCELLENT PLACE!”
"My wife and I stayed at the Esmeralda with only the internet as a source of info. We were extremely pleased from the moment we arrived and would definitely stay here again. The "beach boys" on Coco beach were the best and the bartender was great. The atmosphere is very laid back and could not be more comfortable. Very short walk to the beach. We had rented a car thinking we wouldn't want to stay here the whole time but the car never left and we stayed on Orient for the whole 6 days! Anyone who has complaints about Esmeralda is just too hard to please."
(Rob L. Farmington, NH April 2015)
5 Out of 5-Stars Excellent Resort
We visited Esmeralda for 13 days in January. We have stayed here many times. It is so quiet and so very relaxing. The rooms are immaculate and the staff are just awesome!!
Claudie is lovely, Leo at the front desk is so knowledgeable and so very helpful! Chris is amazing, we once watched him help change a guest's tire in the rain. Such a wonderful man. If you want peace & quiet, this is the place to be. I really can't wait to return!

5 Out of 5-Stars It's all in your perception; we love Esmeralda
This was at least our 10th trip to St. Martin, and our 3rd time staying at the Esmerelda. We noted several improvements since our visit 2 years ago, and though the property is older, it seems well-maintained. The furnishings were comfortable, the room was very clean, and the service was excellent. The front desk staff was very helpful and courteous each time we inquired about a taxi, Wi-Fi, or anything else.
(Sharon B. Traveled as a Couple on January 2015)
5 Out of 5-Stars “Delightful”
"The location is great. The beach is clean and water sports are available. I saw many kite surfers. The room I stayed in was in a 4 room cottage which had its own swimming pool. There are two restaurants on the property. The bed and shower were fine. The air-conditioning was very good. The breakfast was excellent. I took a cab from the airport with 6 other people. It was only $10 each. I would stay here again."

Orient Bay's powdery, soft sand beaches are ideal for swimming, snorkeling, jet skiing, para - sailing and any kind of water sports you can imagine. The tropical trade winds from the East make Orient Beach the ideal spot for sailing, kite surfing and wind surfing.

5 Out of 5-Stars Family Vacation
"Took our entire family (nine of us) to St Martin and stayed at Esmeralda. Accommodations were excellent, with four nice sized bedrooms off a main room. People were wonderful, having our own swimming pool was great, restaurants were great.... All in all, a great trip and Esmeralda is a great place to stay."
(Tom G from Austin Tx on 5/1/2013 for a stay in 4/1/2013)

Beach Lover's Paradise
This is a past prime hotel. But, if you can get past that need for 5 star status, Esmerelda offers the best spot on the best beach in St.Martin. The rooms are clean and well maintained and the staff makes a significant effort to please. Although it's 5 minutes from great restaurants, there is really no reason to leave the property if you're really lazy. The continental breakfast, The Coco Beach Restaurant and astrolabe all offer food ranging from good to excellent, but, don't skip Gran Case. Great value. We return annually. · By Beach Bum Foodie from New York on 2/19/2013 for a stay in 2/1/2013

“It's a nice walk on this property regardless where you are situated, but if you don't like to walk ( or have limited mobility) check the property footprint and request closer to the beach when booking- we were far away- but far being 200-300 yards- that was okay for us!” (JohnP169)
