... was a delightful respite, that is, until three men came traipsing over the hill and down to the beach, stripped completely down to their birthday suits, and proudly, and oh so slowly, waded into the water.
About that time, the two couples emerged from the concealing waters of the sea, revealing that they two were buck naked – all four of them. The pleasure of the soothing Caribbean waters vanished, and Pat and I hydroplaned our way out of the water ...
I woke up early to get a few hours of work in before the day’s boating venture. I met Stephane a few minutes after 10:00; he was waiting on the dock for the French guys. While we waited, he explained we were going to Flat Island (called Tintamare in the travel books, but Flat Island to the locals), about a 15 mintue boat ride away. Just when we started thinking the French guys weren’t going to show up, Stephane got a call that they ...

Tuto found me at the court. He knows by now that if I’m not home, I’m either on the court, at the lolos, or somewhere on the boulevard. I went home and “got fresh” as they say here and went to the pizza place across from the lolos ...
On my lunch break run today, I met some new canine friends and discovered a garden and a cemetary at the very end of Grand Case beach. The garden seemed to be deserted, though there was some sort of irrigation system that had been installed, so maybe someone maintained it. The cemetary was small, compared to those I am used to seeing in the states, but it was probably the most peaceful one I’ve come across. ...
... anniversary, as they did every year, and their friend Jay came along to join them this year. Theirs was the first wedding at the Grand Case Beach Club. It took us a little while to order because everything on the menu looked so delicious! I knew I was getting the lobster bisque, but it took some back and forth before I decided on the crab gnocchi. When the wine was poured, Mick toasted to new friends and I ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Le Petit Hotel Grand Case
We spent a wonderful time in this charming Petit Hotel.
Direct access to the sea, efficient staff and above all excellent hospitality ! Always, smiling and welcoming, Miriam and Samuel (managers) will receive you as stars in the Carribean Sea.
Have a nice journey in this lovely place.
A lovely little place
This 5 stars hotel gave me really wonderful vacations. Just on the Grand-Case beach, a great couple of managers welcomes you and helps you to enjoy your time in the Caribbean area.
My advice : try Le Petit Hotel.
I will come back there.
After six months in Iraq with the Army I spent part of my holiday staying at Le Petit Hotel for a week in May 04. I chose the hotel because it offers precisely the friendly and intimate retreat I needed to relax and enjoy a fabulous holiday. Miriam and Sam make fantastic hosts and were able to advise on how best to spend my time on the beautiful Island that is St Martin, from special beaches and restaurants to the variety of watersports on offer.
St Martin as an Island is simply superb, the hills break up the skyline and make the Island feel far larger than it really is. Grand Case has a restaurant for every taste and budget, and although there's a perfectly good kitchen in each room eating out is very reasonable!! I felt wonderfully comfortable travelling about the Island, never worried about getting around or needing to think about my safety. Even the huge variety of beaches took me by surprise, and all within a half hour at most from the hotel. I would highly recommend the beach out on a little Island where there's a bar and loungers (Miriam has directions!) and nothing to do all day but enjoy the sun and indulge oneself!
The hotel itself is really a treat, the feather beds were a particular blessing after six months on a camp cot - like sleeping in a cocoon by comparison. The sound of the waves is really special and helped me to relax too. And as for being able to trip out of the hotel and across a beautiful white beach into the water and see coral and lovely fish all in the space of fifty yards, simply in heaven.
I thoroughly enjoyed my stay, and have already booked up for a whole fortnight in Easter 2005! No exciting excuses for that trip, just heading back for more pure indulgence. I would recommend Le Petit Hotel to anyone, for the perfect balance between major hotel quality and class and boutique hotel intimacy and freindly feel. St Martin is really a must, and Le Petit Hotel is unmatched.
Best hospitality we've experienced in years! From the moment we arrived, we knew our holiday was going to be special. The attention to detail was so good when we have been so disappointed before. Our recent stay at a 4 star hotel in the UK paled into insignificance compared to the friendliness of the staff and management at Le Petit Hotel. Spacious room (despite the "Petit" name) which was more than adequate for our stay. Direct access to the beach and superb restaurants within walking distance. Oh and did I mention the great staff! All hotels we frequent in the future will be measured aagiinst the standard of service we received here. Top marks!
My wife and I stayed at Le Petit Hotel over Easter in 2004. It is a charming hotel on the French side of the island. Its small size makes it feel homely and welcoming and the whole place is very romantic. The staff are all delightful and bent over backwards to make our stay as pleasant and enjoyable of possible. We couldn't recommend this hotel enough!!!
The perfect carribean experience
Le Petit is the perfect place right on the beach in Grand Case. The 'petit-ness' of it makes the whole experience really personal, with the staff and management taking the time to chat with you and advise you on the best places to eat, drink and swim as well as making reservations for you!
My husband and I have just returned from honeymoon there and had the best time, It is quiet but only a short walk away from some of the most amazing restaurants I've eaten at. The rooms are big and airy all with a view of Grand Case bay and over to Anguilla. The small personal touches like bougainvillea scattered everywhere, and popcorn, cookies and drinks when we arrived really gave it that personal touch.
The facilities are fabulous, being right on the beach with their own chairs and umbrellas is a complete bonus as well as being able to use the pool at their sister hotel. Snorkelling equipment, DVD's, books and towels are all available from the office.
I can't express in words how lovely this place is and we will definitely return to this jewel in the crown of St Martin.
Loving Le Petit
My wife and I just returned from a wonderful stay at Le Petit Hotel in the village of Grand Case in St. Martin. This is our fifth visit to the island and we have always stayed in Grand Case. Le Petit is for those who want great accomodations, intimacy, a quiet beach at your door and close proximity to some of the finest cuisine in the Caribbean. Grand Case offers dozens of fantastic restaurants. You would need a month to sample them all. The closest you get to fast food here is the local barbecues know as lolos.
We stayed in the oversized suite on the ground floor. The patio steps lead right to the beach. The rooms have A/C, a modern kitchenette and even a DVD player. Everything is tastefully done.
Miriam and Sam, who manage the place, and the rest of the staff are wonderful and make you feel right at home. We're already planning our return visit.
Excellent romantic Hidaway
We had a Wonderful stay. The room was perfect, the fresh breakfast pastries, the gorgeous beach right outside....but ESPECIALLY, the hosts were THE GREATEST!
Loved Le Petit (again)
My boyfriend and I just returned from our second stay at Le Petit Hotel. I cannot say enough about how wonderful this little hotel is!!! The rooms are beautifully appointed, clean, and well maintained. The staff is friendly and helpful. The beach is quiet and peaceful. The views are spectacular. If you are looking for quiet, romantic, beachfront accommodations on St. Martin within walking distance of some of the finest restaurants in the Caribbean, Le Petit Hotel is for you!!! It is certainly the place for us !!!
We stayed at Le Petit Hotel in the summer 2003. The hotel is very pretty and only has 10 rooms. Every room overlooks the carribean and you can see Anquilla in the distance. It is a perfect location on the far end of the Grand Case beach that gives you the feel that you almost have the beach to yourself. We stayed on the 3rd floor and it and a nice spacious room where we could eat breakfast on the deck overlooking the water.
The location is superb since it is within walking distance to the best restaurants in Grand Case and the best dining in St. Martin.
We will definetly be back!
