We had a wonderful time at La Plantation! We loved the setup of the room, very roomy and we liked the patio. It was nice to have a fridge and sink. Breakfast was just fine, same thing everyday but enough of a variety that we enjoyed it the whole week. Friendly staff and the room was cleaned well. It was... More

We just returned from a week at Orient Bay where we stayed at La Plantation 3* and found it friendly and comfortable and clean.The rooms were large and airy and had a cottage feel to them. It was good value for the money. There were 5 beach restaurants with longue chairs and parasols at no cost to use and it... More

I was pleasantly surprised by how much I enjoyed this little cottage. The patio was my favorite spot to enjoy tropical breezes and quiet time, but there's not much of a view of the ocean. Breakfast was lovely, served poolside and certainly appreciated more once I found out how much food costs on the island. Don't have dinner in the... More

La Plantation is like staying at a friend's summer cottage. It was clean, kitschy, but the refrigerator had some rust on it & the drawers would stick when opening. BUT the view was incredible, the staff was VERY friendly & helpful, the food in the restaurant was first class. The breakfast buffet (included) was the same every day, but included... More

Kind staff. Nice rooms in small 'cabana's'. Located on a strip with more hotels en restaurants, bars and shops. Internet access is hardly ever working. But you're on a holiday, so why need it. Lovely breakfast at the poolside. La Plantation is located on the exact opposite of the island (compared to the airport) and depending on time of day... More

We just came back from a vacation in St. Martin last week. The trip itself was nice, although not what I was expecting from what I had read and seen in pictures. It is a small island that is half French and half Dutch. It sounds like a great way to see 2 different cultures on one island. Its still... More

This was my second trip to St. Martin and La Plantation made it a great one. I stayed in a "studio" room, lower level (I don't remember exactly what it was called).
