We stayed at the Alamanda for 8 nights from 17 August to 25 August, after researching accommodation on the internet and checking out the hotel when in St Marten for the day on a cruise. So we had a good idea of what to expect. We wanted an adults only holiday so took some time off while our 8 year...

Having researched the hotels on the French side of St Martin's, we chose the Alamanda and were not disappointed. We expected a small,quiet accomodation, with the best beach on the island nearby, as well as several restaurants, and that's exactly what we got. We paid for an ocean view room. We were given room 209, a duplex. While our balcony...

We honeymooned at the Alamanda resort 4 years ago and just returned from our second visit since. We love the "boutique hotel" experience and the staff who have all been there since Alamanda opened 5 years ago. We love that they remember our names from our previous visits and they make us feel like we're coming home to old friends....

This was far from a resort. I had much higher expectations after reading many reviews. The Alamanda is more like a motel. The location is great, only a short walk to Orient beach. Besides the location the only other positive was the size of the rooms, I felt they were pretty spacious. The shower door is a sheet of plastic...

Wife and I (both Mid-40s) stayed at the Alamada 7/16/07 - 7/21/07. As other reviews indicated this hotel sits in a great location right in the heart of Orient Beach. If you're looking for a "resort" type hotel, the Alamanda is not for you. It's a very nice two story "beach" hotel. We stayed in a 2nd floor "oceanview" room...

My hubby and I (both mid 30's) stayed for 2 nights at the Alamanda, before we took the ferry over to Anguilla for a week. This hotel is small and in a really good location near Orient Beach (about a 2 minute walk!) We booked a "beach level" room, however, you cannot see the beach from your patio in this...

My wife and I just spent 5 nights at the Alamanda and enjoyed it very much. The location is great! It's a very short walk to the beach, to restaurants, and grocery store.

Someone wrote in an earlier review that "the place is like montauk or key west , if you know what that means" - I'd say thats true. Overall, the alamanda was a fine place to stay, but we didnt care for st martin and will not likely return. Maybe we were a bit biased having just come from heavenly anguilla,...
