Esmeralda Resort offers luxurious accommodations tucked away on St. Martin's Orient Beach, and is the perfect getaway for beach lovers, watersports enthusiasts, and couples or families looking for the quiet comfort of an island vacation.

The resort is located on the northeast coast of French St. Martin and is only twelve miles from the airport. Esmeralda Resort offers guests the opportunity to spend their time in tropical seclusion while still enjoying access to all the amenities of a larger hotel.

At Esmeralda Resort, every villa is equipped with its own private pool. That means a pool is set aside for each individual grouping of guests. Of course, you wouldn't come to St. Martin without experiencing the white, pristine beaches for which the island is famous. Esmeralda Resort enjoys a privileged location on 1.8 miles of Orient Bay's pure sand. Guests can lounge under the shade of tropical greenery or spend their days taking up new watersports and snorkeling in the clear waters.

The privacy of Esmeralda Resort is perfect for couples intent on a romantic Caribbean getaway; private pools, villa-style accommodations, and seclusion invite honeymooners and intimate couples to relax amongst the splendors of the island. Rooms are all air-conditioned, equipped with a full kitchen, a safe, and comfortable poolside terraces.

The culinary charm of French St. Martin is undeniable. Guests of Esmeralda Resort enjoy the choice of two fine dining experiences, l'Astrolabe and the Coco Beach restaurant. L'Astrolabe serves local specialties and fine French cuisine in a cozy, serene atmosphere, and caters to guests who prefer to remain poolside. Coco Beach, a more casual beachfront grill, offers up fresh Creole and European fare. Enjoy a free daily continental breakfast, or call room service for breakfast and dinner.

We stayed at Club Orient for many years, but it's gone with the wind. We felt we wanted to support the recovery by returning to the island and booked at Esmeralda. We had a wonderful time and will return soon. The hotel is excellent,clean,comfortable and friendly. The beach is better than ever. We loved the pool in front of our room.

My college friend and I were on our annual “Girl’s Trip” and decided on St. Maarten as the destination this year. The moment we arrived on the property we knew we'd made an excellent choice. Reception was welcoming and very helpful our villa included a semi private pool and was just what we needed. Our room was clean, airy and quite cool upon our arrival. The property is a stone's throw from the beach so we quite enjoyed the walk everyday, it also gave us a chance to see firsthand the devastation that Irma brought about.The island is busy rebuilding and people are working very hard to restore what was lost. We dined in L'Astrolabe for breakfast daily which was delightful they even were gracious enough to pack up breakfast to go for us on the morning of our excursion over to Anguilla. We walked to the surrounding restaurants for our evening meals and we were able to pick up amenities at the convenience store. We decided to be adventurous and spent the entire day at the nude beach and met some great people and had a good lunch at the shack that was housed at the nude beach. Our last morning on the property they cut the water off in our villa (unbeknownst to us) so we were challenged because we needed to shower before getting ready to head to the airport for our departure. We contacted reception and they were apologetic they came with bottle water to help us get cleaned up and we were able to heat the water in the kettle to tend to our needs. Once we checked out they again apologized and comped our incidentals which made the experience less unpleasant. I look forward to returning to St. Maarten again and I'll definitely stay at The Esmeralda Resort.......... C'etait Charmant!!!!!

Researching resorts in Saint Martin we were smitten with Esmeralda Resort and it lived up to our expectations. We stayed March 2-9. The sprawling villa style resort is elegant but laid back and casual. Staff are responsive but not obtrusive. The semi private pool was welcomed when the beautiful beach was too windy. We had deluxe rooms which were very spacious and comfy with a large patio. It was nice to nice to sleep at night without AC with the peaked roof, ceiling fan and screened windows you could leave open to hear the ocean, breeze in the palm trees and crickets. Astrolabe, the on-site restaurant, serves up fine cuisine and other good restaurants are a 5-6 minute walk to the Orient Bay village which can also be accessed from the beach. For early risers, warm fresh baked croissants are served up at an excellent patissere. There is also a good grocery store, a few casual cafes, pizza parlor, salon and beach shop with swimsuits, coverups and beach toys. We went on a day trip to Anguilla which included a stop at Prickly Pear Cay and snorkelling - we saw lots of colourful fish Anguilla is beautiful with calm beaches. We loved our trip to Saint Martin and our stay at Esmeralda and hope to return again soon.

My wife and I just returned from a week in St Martin. We stayed at the Esmelda and it more than met our expectations. The property was well maintained, the rooms were very clean and the beds were comfortable. The private pools were a bonus I never even considered when selecting a place to stay. Many afternoons, we found ourselves cooling off in the pool chatting with other guests from out four unit villa. The staff is very eager to please you and assist you with your every need. The restaurant on site, the Astrolab, was excellent but be sure to check out other restaurants in Orient Bay and Grand Case as well. After all, St Martin is the culinary center of the Caribbean. While it is true that Hurricane Irma gave the island a pounding and there is still much work to be done to bring it back to its former splendor, this is a great time to visit St Martin. The beaches are not as crowded and the people of the island are so appreciative of the tourist. I highly recommend the Esmerelda if you choose to visit this wonderful little island.

Lovely, relaxing resort

Close to the beach, semi-private pools, topnotch French restaurant and a professional staff make this Orient Beach hotel an excellent choice. Very laid-back and not super-lux except for the space, quiet and delicious food. Walk to beach restaurants or a small shopping area or a nude beach. Activities can be booked through the concierge if you're so inclined. The island is still recovering but we booked a taxi to give us a tour of the main sights. Be sure to have the local food in Grand Case. We highly recommend Cynthia's.
