Recent Orient Bay reviews

  • Great place

    "We spent wonderful three weeks in this studio in November. We are always looking for secluded, not overcrowded places and we definitely found it here. We usually met only a few people in the residence as the most of them are probably living there and working in St. Martin. So, also the pool is very relaxing and there are only a few people using it during the day. The studio is very spacious and fully equipped - it is almost the same as shown on the pictures with some small changes. The highlight is the view which is really beautiful at all times of the day. We enjoyed it very much. Having breakfast and watching the sea is a dream. All the sofas, chairs and the bed are comfortable so we really felt like at home. We used to cook by ourselves on most of the days and we found everything we needed in the kitchen. There is a small store in the residence which has the necessary things you may need upon arrival. In the evenings there is a pizzeria next to this shop which has a very delicious pizza. Another grocery store is located in Orient Village where you can walk on the beach. The beach has soft sand and it is enough long for good walks. It can get crowded during the day (depends of how many cruise ships are currently in the port) but we walked every morning and there were only a few people on the beach. We felt totally safe in the residence and also during walking outside. The local people are very nice and helpful. We really enjoyed every minute in this studio and we would ask for it again if returning to St. Martin. Martine is very helpful, we always got a quick answer if we sent an email with some questions. We didn't find any serious weaknesses during the three weeks. Thank you Martine for a great holiday."

  • Great host, location and value

    "Alban was great to deal with throughout the process. He is quick to respond to e-mails and acted as a warm and hospitable host. The studio was extremely well located, minutes from the beach with a large onsite pool. The Orient Bay Beach was not our favourite - although others may enjoy it more than we did - but there are dozens of others beaches to choose from just a short drive away. The studio offers excellent value for money since the price really cannot be beat for what you are getting. The property we received was exactly as advertised with the small caveat that it is not, from a North American perspective, a "luxury studio". However, if you're looking for a clean, well maintained studio, in an excellent location with a great host that offer top notch value for money, this is the place for you!"

  • Villa Alanca -- very comfortable and relaxing

    "We very much enjoyed our stay at this villa. Well equipped, beautiful views, and fully consistent with the VRBO listing and description. A short walk down the hill to Orient Beach (the best of the island!), and a very nice choice of restaurants. And Grand Cas, with its excellent restaurants, is a short ten minute drive. We have been coming to Orient Bay for years, and this will be our villa selection when we next return!"

  • Relaxing and peaceful property

    "We were here March 2016. Group of 4 adults. 1st time not using an all inclusive resort. Large 2 bedroom + loft unit. Very spacious, clean, and unbelievably quiet. We couldn't believe how the only sounds we heard were the waves of the ocean. View from 2nd floor balcony was beautiful. Even though there is a parking lot in between the condo and the beach, you can't see it through the landscaping and it isn't used at night. The view from the bedrooms balconies were of the mountains and the surrounding village. All of us thought the beds were incredible! Clean. The unit had all we needed and the manager Julie answered all our questions quickly and effectively. We asked for a BBQ and she got one. The loft would only be good for children as it is open concept into the living room / kitchen area so sleeping in the a.m. would be difficult if that was a need. We had a cleaning lady come in once and she did a great job. We wish we had more towels in between the once visit. There is a washing machine but we didn't end up using it. Parking included. Building is very safe and is locked on all sides. We wish we had been given 4 keys instead of 2 as difficult when we were going back and forth to the beach at different times but not a huge deal. The pool is small and walled in without a view. You would never use it during the day as there is no wind and the area gets very hot. We used it at the end of the day for a cool off. The beach is beautiful (with the exception of some minor seaweed but we know that this is common throughout most if not all the Caribbean right now). It's in a relatively quiet area of the Orient Beach scene but a close walk if you need more action and about 15 minute walk to the nude beach (which is calmer as its in a bay). We weren't happy with the service at Waikiki Beach which provided the chairs/umbrellas as part of the condo deal. They NEVER came and asked us for service (drinks or food). They would only serve the customers of Waikiki and we weren't allowed to sit in the more comfortable chairs. They would take the umbrellas away at 3:30/4:00 if the cruise customers had left as they wanted to go home. The bathrooms at Waikiki were gross!!!! We saw staff using the chair sheds to have sex with tourists! Thank goodness we were a short walk to our condo. Night life is quiet. A short walk to the Village - pricey but good. They take US dollars at par at most places which was good for us instead of Euro. Highly recommend Princess Eden unit!"
