L’Esplanade hotel sits on a hill overlooking the village and bay of Grand Case. It is a property I have always admired from afar and finally, on a sunny February day and on an invitation from the hotel owner, I got to drive through the gates. My husband and I were both excited to see what it would be like up close. We were about to enjoy another staycation on French St Martin, and this time we would be calling L’Esplanade our home for a few days.
A bed that is begging to be slept in, furniture in bright and vibrant Caribbean colors, a view to live by, free WiFi and ample closet space with plenty of hangers, this is what I remember most about my stay at the Mount Nevis Hotel. But wait, I am getting way ahead of myself here. Let us start from the beginning, shall we?!
