Esmeralda Resort Review: One of the Best Orient Beach Hotels

If you’re planning a trip to St. Martin, you’re in for a Caribbean vacation treat. From sugar-white beaches and waters that wow in shades of turquoise to delectable French cuisine, it’s the dream!

Now you need to choose where to stay on St. Martin. There are several enticing options in French St. Martin, one of which is Esmeralda Resort on Orient Beach. It’s one of the best Orient Bay hotels.

We’ve enjoyed extended vacations on the island a couple of times now, trying out different resorts and hotels. On our most recent visit, we stayed for almost a week at Esmeralda.

It’s a mere 5-minute walk from Orient Beach, one of the most beautiful beaches on Saint Martin. It’s located right behind Coco Beach Club.

You can choose any appetizer, main dish, and dessert for 54 euros, or order the dishes separately. You can pay extra if you feel like eating more.

It has a fine French restaurant, L’Astrolabe

The resort is gated, which gives it that extra level of privacy. It consists of 18 pink and lilac Creole-style villas. They’re widely spread out, adding to the private atmosphere.

There’s a lovely feeling of space

Rooms are available for a party of any size. You can choose from a superior room, which has a king-size bed or two double beds and is ideal for couples or friends.
