Prós: The private beach is gorgeous and the beach staff are very attentive.
Contras: The room was newly renovated but they used the old furniture. The sofa bed wouldn't open so we had to call the desk for assistance. Even they had a hard time opening it.
would not stay again. poor phone hidden charges with hotel too many taxes.
Prós: ocean veiw
Contras: poor pool
This is a great place to stay in St. Martin & Grand Case. The grounds are meticulously maintained, and include a lovely beach with chairs/umbrellas, available water activities, fresh water pool, restaurant, bar, gardens, and quaint terraces. The room was very clean and modern, although some towels were a bit thin. Staff is great! Only two minor complaints. The wifi works, but there is not much bandwidth, and it can be very slow or nonexistent at certain peak time. Also, parking in the compound late at night can be a challenge, and may require some improvising. In any case, GCBC is a wonderful place and a great value. We will return!
Contras: Staff was friendly and helpful, grounds were meticulously maintained, room was clean. Parking within the compound was a bit tight, especially if you return late at night.
Prós: Welcoming and helpful staff. Great location by a long, wide beach. Nicely decorated, comfortably sized room. Liked having a kitchenette and patio. Didn't need a car, plenty of restaurants nearby.
Contras: My first floor room was behind the pool. I felt a lack of privacy. The staff recommended I close the shutter before going to bed. While this made the room secure, I felt as if I was sleeping in a storage container. Plus I couldn't wake up to the sun.
Contras: No water pressure in shower. Bedding extremely uncomfortable, mattress and pillows hard as a rock. Very slow wifi internet
THe alamanda was a great resort. My only complaint was how the money exchange ended up. Instead of 1-1.3, it ended up 1-1.5.
Contras: I was quotedXXX when I booked the reservation. It actually came thru asXXX euros. I was told the exchange rate wad1-1.3. That comes out tp approximately XXX. However, my credit card came thru atXXX About $65.00 was due to tips
Definitely book a room with a view. The the other rooms seem dark and confined. The staff was absolutely wonderful, friendly helpful and welcoming. The rooms are very bare bones, but the location is perfect for walking to all the wonderful Grand Case restaurants. The beach view is incredible and the beach area is nice as well. A little more attention to cleanliness and a few more towels etc this place would be perfect.
Contras: Could pay more attention to cleaning details. Continually brought glasses that were not clean. Also the room floor was sandy. Only had 2 bath towels in the room, and they do not provide beach towels.
Hotel sufficient for basic needs. Very close proximity to beach...a 2-3 minute walk. Staff very friendly and local eating establishments within walking distance. Nearby French restaurant, Le Piment, possibly the best French food you will eat.....but don't order off menu, order from board specials.
