    Very good

    The hotel facilities are very good, the location is privileged. The village style is wonderful for beach vacations. The bed was very comfortable, the air-conditioning worked very well and the cleaniness of the room was ok.

    Despite of the good things, the Hotel does not have WiFi in every room (as it is advertised in the site), and the continental breakfast is very very poor. There is internet connection only in the lobby, and the bandwith is very bad, so it's almost impossible to even use it. Regarding breakfast, they charge you for yogurt and cereal, what I think is very bad taste after paying 300usd/night, and saying that the breakfast is included.

    Has not been maintained for 15 plus years. Rotting wood, curtains falling down, old cabinets, outdoor umbrella torn, front office rarely open, cleaning only once. Left knitting and they did not bother to look when called.

    See above. Would not recommend as we were there years ago and it was nice. Seems like they just want to squeeze what the can out of it and not put any upkeep into i .

    Superb

    The location couldn't be better. You are steps away from the nicest part of Orient Beach. There is a wonderful beach restaurant/bar, Coco Beach. The rooms are spacious and there is a pool for every 5-6 rooms. The grounds are lovely.

    The included breakfast is not very good. I don't like having to go to reception every day to exchange my beach towel. The wifi in the room didn't work at all.

    Very good

    The place is steps away from a magnificent beach. Nice size bungalows with a lovely porch. 4 attached bungalows each have their own pool. Breakfast which is included is in a beautiful setting around a pool and is delicious. The staff for breakfast were very nice. The restaurant on the grounds for dinner was amazing!!

    The grounds need up keeping. Plantings are dying, grass growing between bricks, palm tree branches on the ground and not cleaned up. The property looks like it has had better days. The women at the front desk was always on the phone whenever you had a question or needed towels. Wifi was hit or miss.

    Loved the private patio and the pool. The location was top notch. Used the small kitchen daily for snacks and breakfast.

    The refrigerator did not maintain a steady temperature and a few days our food was wet and sweaty. The staff at the beach cafe did not want hotel guests using the front row beach chairs, although the hotel stated the beach chairs and umbrella were included with the room. The cafe wanted hotel guests in the second and third rows.

    Superb

    The location could not be better and the staff is very accommodating. The restaurant is excellent! The rain shower head is great! We love being so close to the beach.

    Probably a non issue for younger folks but the flat screen TV could be bigger given the very large size of the room and the distance between the bed and TV.

    Fabulous

    Quiet resort, kind staff, and great amenities, we had our own little swimming pool (shared with two neighboring rooms), the beach is beautiful, the restaurant had great food!

    The resort is located inside a gated community of what is locally referred to as 'The White Ghetto'. So very quite and clean, but not necessarily an authentic island experience. Also its seems a bit cheap and weird to have to pay extra for eggs at breakfast?

    Superb

    Location in Orient Bay is great. Many places to eat drink between the beach and the village (next to resort). Wonderfully friendly staff. Relaxing spot removed from the cruise boats and crowds of Phillipsburg.

    No bad experiences during our stay.

    Nice and quiet place, great rooms, very good internal restaurant and beach facilities.

    Wifi connection in th room often not working or very slow. For this reason they didn't charge the service (10€/day)

    Fabulous

    We loved the location and especially the beach. It was at the end of Orient Bay, said to be the prettiest beach on the French side. It was less noisy and pretentious than the beaches in the adjacent resorts. There was a great restaurant at the beach and the swimming was fantastic. Then, you could rinse off in the pool. The staff was very helpful and friendly. All in all, the resort was pretty and relaxing. Also, it is close to the "square, " an area with many excellent restaurants. It felt like being in France.

    We had two complaints. The first is that the internet service is terrible. Other reviews and guidebooks described it as spotty. In today's world, people depend on the internet, even while on vacation, and it is essential to have a system that works. They charge 10 euros/day for internet except in the lobby, where it sometimes works. Increasing numbers of hotels offer free wireless. The Esmerelda should either improve their system or install a new one that's accessible around the entire resort, including the restaurant. It should be included with your room as well. It was frustrating but didn't interfere with our overall enjoyment We were traveling with another couple who are better traveled than we are. They thought that the continental breakfast could be improved by adding more variety and some protein- whole grain bread, yogurt, choice of cereal, hard boiled eggs. We ordered eggs- additional charge, which were good.
