Hotel Overview

Please note, this hotel is closed until April 30, 2018.

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.

    First time in St. Martin after Hurricane Irma

    Our deluxe room was very large and bright, with high ceilings and spacious closets. It had been recently renovated. The bathroom was large as well with a magnifying mirror and strong shower. The breakfast included in the room price was a basic continental, but you could order eggs and pancakes for a reasonable extra fee. They had and agreement with three beachfront bars, so you could get beach chairs and umbrellas for free. The property has access to the Orient Bay beach. We would highly recommend Esmeralda to family and friends and stay there again if we go back to St Martin.

    Nice hotel and friendly staff

    Hotel features a series of small individual bungalows. We recieved a complimentary upgrade when we arrived which was a nice surprise. The room was clean and spacious. Rooms also all have semi private pools. The island is still recovering from hurricane Irma meaning repairs are still taking place all around you. Orient Bay is a bit removed from the areas of cruise ships, but the beaches are beautiful.

    Wonderful Staff

    The resort was quiet since we were there at the beginning of the off season. We had a semi private pool that definitely seemed like a private one, and the room was large with high vaulted ceilings. The staff was amazing. They were so genuine with their interest in our stay, and making sure we had a great time. A special thank you to Dennis at the bar, and Francoise who helped us in the restaurant!

    First time visit...but definitely not the last.

    Our first visit to the Esmeralda was incredible from Roger's amazing service throughout our entire stay. I think he may have worked every shift and always with a smile. The way you are coordinating with the beaches out front allowed for easy access to beach chairs. We loved Orient Beach. The food at l"Astrolabe was amazing as was the wine list. We ate there two nights and it truly was lovely food and ambience. On our last night Luann was able to work to secure us our print outs of our boarding passes. Simply said; the staff was making its way to make us feel special. Victor was also great. I think it is how you are treated by the people who work at a place that speak to how your experience will proceed and everyone we encountered was helpful and charismatic The bungalows were great and had a lovely feel to them.
