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.

This is a St Martin / Orient Beach gem !
beachandworldtravel, Florida Keys, Florida

The staff are extraordinary and the hotel is blissful ! A week stay went by way too fast ! The rooms are located in 4-6 room buildings that all have a semi-private pool area. There is a pastry / coffee / tea breakfast with fruit served at the main restaurant every AM (see photo). Additional breakfast items are available at a small charge. We did eat dinner there one night on "lobster night" and were very pleased with the service and the seafood was as good as any on the island ! It was also her birthday, and the server surprised us with a small dessert with a sparkling candle ! My wife and I enjoyed the relaxing atmosphere and the gentile nature of the staff. All staff are very bilingual, and her French improved and I even began to speak a little ! The room was very comfortable, and we enjoyed the proximity feature of the pool area. The pool is clothing optional and it was nice to rinse off after the beach. The Coco beach club is a very short 2-5 minute walk (depending on your location in the spread out resort). The entire Orient Beach is topless and very comfortable with no special attention paid to anyone aux seins nus. You can charge any food / drink to your hotel bill, and the staff here were equally pleasant and very eager to set up chairs (complimentary for hotel guests), towels and even set up a clothing optional area. We walked the entire Orient Beach (topless of course) and found the 2.5 mile walk each day a great way to help burn off some "vacation calories". We did rent a jeep for the week, and this was great to get around, but honestly, if you are staying in the Orient Beach area, you can easily walk to the OB central shopping /restaurants or if you want to get a little further out, it is a short cab to Grand Case restaurants or other area marinas. We did a Sunset Cruise as well as a short catamaran ride to Tittamare. Enjoy, relax and experience le joie de vivre !

An Excellant Staycation

Its amazing how one can be living somewhere and never experience what their own island or country have to offer! Living on the Dutch side we decided to do a long staycation weekend on the French side. After breezing through so many hotels Esmeralda Resort captured our attention. Offering local rates with continental breakfast included why not....... I have never really been in Orient Bay area anyways! Beautiful Hotel and Location!! Our room number was 536 close to the tennis court and entrance area. Whats really nice about this resort is every building have their own pool. Some buildings consist of 2 or 4 units so more privacy and less crowd. The resort was not full as they are getting ready to close for the month of September. The room was however very clean and bed comfortable. The property was well kept and also very clean. The restaurant onsite besides free continental offered other breakfast options for a very reasonable price and dinner though a little pricey was also very nice. They however offer a three course meal for only 48.00 euros which we took advantage of. Coco beach was within walking distance less than 5 mins away directly from the hotel premises. The beach however was not nice at the time but quite rough with lots of sea weed. The food at coco's was really good but a bit pricey as well. I had chicken in curry sauce and my husband had the snapper both were surprisingly good for a restaurant on the beach. In short this Resort was truly a good find and would definitely recommend it. We had a really nice relaxing stay! ........stayed 18 - 21 August, 2017

This gem of a resort will transform your winter blues into visions of springtime delight. The ambiance of this Caribbean jewel is unparalleled. The staff is so friendly and accommodating and their on-site restaurants are convenient and award winning. Once experienced, you'll make this your annual destination.

My wife and I spent 4 nights and five days at this fabulous resort. At check-in we finally met the famous Eliu ! Eliu has a great personality, was very informative, speaks more than several languages, and has great customer service!! You ask for it; he will deliver! Eliu makes the Esmeralda Resort memorable. Esmeralda Management; I hope you are listening! Thank you Primo (Eliu) for everything! Our villa was perfect! Upon situating ourselves in our room, there is a knock at the door to find out that we were sent a complimentary bottle of wine! How awesome is that! Our room had a king bed, was spacious, and clean. The villas with one's private swimming is a plus!!! We then took a stroll to the beach; Wow! Beautiful! Thumbs up to David and the Coco Beach Staff! You have to try and buy a bottle of their Rum (caramel/vanilla) delicious! Coco beach had great food, service, and drinks. We dined one nite @ Astrolabe! Beautiful setting overlooking the pool and great food. The complimentary continental breakfast was perfect! Fresh fruit, bread, croissants, juices, and coffee! All the staff was friendly at the resort! The small store next to the reception desk is a plus! Stock up in water, soda, liquor, or beer for your room. Housekeeping left the room clean and smelling fresh everyday! A great resort in a great location!

Perfect stay!

Husband and I stayed here for the first time from July 4-11. Our room was clean and comfy and housekeeping did a wonderful job every day. Everyone at the front desk was helpful and welcoming along with everybody working on the property. I really liked that Orient Bay had security and I felt very safe taking morning runs all around Orient Bay and on the beach by myself. The pool was wonderful! We used this daily. Even better was the gorgeous beach. This is such a pleasant place to stay and I would definitely come here again. There were some cute cats and kittens on the property as well...very sweet. I had the free coffee sitting out every morning, but I guess you have to ask for the croissants or food other travelers have posted about on here. Never had anything but the coffee so be sure to note that food isn't out with the coffee when you go.
