... a photo festival of our end-of-Haiti vacation on St-Martin/Saba/Anguilla islands in the Caribean. We visited our friends Marc and Romain living in St-Martin (thanks again, pals! Wonderful site you have) and went on to the 2 others nearby islands. I put some captions on some of the pix. And yes, I do love flowers...
2 Countries, 1 Small Island, St. Maarten (Dutch)/St. Martin (French) is the smallest island in the world to be shared between two different countries, peacefully co-existing for over 360 years. We made port on the Dutch side of this beautiful mountainous island and had an amazing view of the famous airport that operates on a tiny stretch of land between the ocean and the rising mountain allowing no room for operator error. Provisioning here was amazing, the market was ...
... between Donna’s departure and Pete’s arrival Dave had plenty to do to make the time pass. There was a strong enough internet signal from shore to allow him to complete and file his taxes. The SSB radio was received back repaired, so he had to re-install it and test it (all was well). He went grocery shopping to stock up for Pete, and had plenty of time yet to perform various other maintenance tasks. Don’t forget that Harbor Watch is ...

It was really nice evening, one more time with excellent food!! I'm eating way to much! Soon I won't fit my bikini any more;P haha
This week was pretty busy I must say! But I like busy at least something is going on all the time;)

into the fading light. Such a good day. After dinner we went to watch the Ice Skating show again, but half way through it was cancelled, as the sea was a bit rough, and the ship was a bit rocky.
During the next day, we had two of the Indian ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel Beach Plaza Marigot
My friend and I just returned from 4 nights at the Hotel Beach Plaza (16-20 July) and had a great time. I booked this hotel based on reviews that I saw on this site and the price. The hotel is very well kept, the beach is great and the staff were very helpful and friendly. The restaurant food was ok at best. Location is great as it is only a 5 minute walk to the Marina Royale's shops and restaurants. Overall, the hotel was clean, comfortable, great location and helpful staff. I would stay there again and would definately recommend anyone else to stay there.
The best ever holiday in the world
I loved this holiday so much i want to go again the people are so freindly!
My wife and I stayed at Beach Plaza Hotel March 21-26, 2004 and really enjoyed our stay. We liked the short walk to town and places to eat.
I can't agree with the previous reviewers. This hotel does not honor its reservations. I reserved an oceanview room for 3 days over the New Year's celebrations 2003-2004. On arrival I was told that there no oceanview rooms were available but I could take a cityview (at the lower, cityview rate). You can imagine my disappointment, after planning for the trip for months. Having arrived in the evening at the height of the holiday season, I had no choice but to accept the cityview room. Cityview rooms look right onto the main highway, which is busy from 7am until around 1030pm: the nconstant oise from passing cars was unbearable. Apart from this, I had to pay a $50 deposit just to borrow an iron and ironing board. When I tried to use the iron, the circuitbreaker kicked in and turned off the room's electricity. As a frequent traveler to Europe, I was not personally very impressed by the breakfast spread, but perhaps more telling was the ugly shouting match that broke out between one of the breakfast room staff and one of the hotel guests. To be fair, I have to admit that the hotel's central atrium, with lots of plants and pools, is beautiful. And I did not feel unsafe at all at any time, even walking the 15 minutes to Marigot at night; but then I am a young man, and according to several in Marigot I look like "one of the natives." On whole I would not stay at this hotel again. After staying the 1st two nights here, I spent a night at the Maho Beach Hotel & Casino, then 3 more nights at the Grand Case Beach Club, both of which I would highly recommend -- the former has rooms similar to what you might find in any large hotel in the US or around the world, the latter is much smaller, with rooms that might better be described as similar to rental apartments.
My girlfriend and I stayed at the Hotel Beach Plaza in February 2003.
We stayed at Hotel Beach Plaza over the march break in 2003. We took the advise on this site to pay the extra money for the ocean view which was correct. It turned out it was the Heiniken regada celebration the first night we were there. It was quite a rocking party. The following day things quieted down dramatically which thankfully turned out to be the norm. There were many beautiful catamaran sailboats on swing anchor about 50 yards away from the beach. We made use of the in-room safe and only carried what we needed. Note: there is a unique opportunity to do some pretty high end shopping for designer clothes and accessories in Marigot so if you buy things it would be best to keep them low profile.
Hotel was nice and very clean. The native staff was very nice but the European staff was fake nice. Be careful, shop around, the hotel staff tried to rip me off by renting a scooter/car/tin can jeep for more than the advertised price, saying it's the old price. I was surprised at all the loose dogs on the streets with no owners (heard it's the same everywhere in the Caribean), even on the hotel grounds. If you're newlyweds show them proof of marriage and they'll upgrade your room for free.
My husband and I stayed in Hotel Beach Plaza March 18-25, 2003 and we loved it. You can get to the Marina and to downtown (where all the boutiques, shops, and restaurants are) in a quick 10 minutes. The easy accessibility to all the patisseries and boulangeries made staying at the hotel worthwhile. We rented a car one day to explore the island, which isn't big at all (37 sq mile). The hotel had beach access which was nice. Bring your own beach towels. They say they have beach towels, but they charge you for it ($1 every time you exchange for a dry/clean one). The breakfast is superb. The fruit is fresh. It beats having to forage in the morning for breakfast. We did not experience or hear of any crime directed at tourist while we were there. Though there are a lot of scams, so beware. The hotel is situated on the main thoroughfare into and out of town, so it does get pretty noisy if your room is facing the island or lagoon. It's not any different than living in Manhattan. Overall, I was pleased with the rooms. They were clean and spacious. The staff was friendly. I would definitely stay there again.
We were in Marigot from February 28th through March 4, 2003. We stayed at the Hotel Beach Plaza, which we loved. The hotel is about a 10 minute walk from downtown, and on the last evening of our trip, around 9 PM, we were crime victims. We were about 30 feet from the entrance to the hotel when a man jumped out of a parked car, and cut the chainlink strap to my handbag (I was wearing it across my body, not resting on my shoulder). Whatever tool he used cut the metal and leather like it was a piece of tissue paper. It took him about 5 seconds to do this, return to the car, and have his accomplice drive off. These men were professional thieves. We filed a police report in Marigot, but the license number of the car (which another person managed to record) was a Dutch plate, so the French Police have to turn it over to the Dutch Police. I don't expect anything to ever be resolved. Both the hotel staff, and the police told us that crime has increased dramatically in the past few months on their island. The hotel did say that we were the first people they knew of, however, that had been robbed right outside the fence of the hotel. I lost $103 USD, and one credit card. I always keep all other credit cards and the rest of my money in a hotel safety deposit box. I was glad I did that. Also, I had a list of the phone numbers for the credit card company in the safety deposit box, so the hotel called them, and we were able to cancel the card immediately. It could have been worse. There was no weapon involved, and we were not mugged. However, I recommend that you ask your restaurant to call a taxi for you, rather than walk around at night.
The Beach Plaza Hotel
My husband and I just returned from nine days at the Beach Plaza Hotel near Marigot. It was great. We had not been back to St. Martin in seven years, and this is the only really nice hotel in a five minute walk to all the restaurants in Marigot. The price included a terrific buffet breakfast. The rooms (we had an ocean front) were really nice with balconys. The beach is certainly swimable. To get to the legendary beaches on the Island (Baie Rouge) we rented a car. But staying on the beach at the hotel (padded lounge chairs and shade provided was very relaxing. I would go back.
