Fodor's Expert Review L'Hoste

, St. Martin

Editor's Note: This property is currently undergoing renovations.

You can't miss the multistory candy-colored villas right on beautiful Orient Beach. Young guests flock here for gentle prices, huge rooms, and the friendly, relaxed atmosphere. The hotel's La Playa Beach Club is also relaxed and inviting, and the boutiques, spa, and nonstop party on the beachfront are big draws. There's a cute little pool in the garden and a gazebo for reading. All rooms have small kitchens, but the hotel is offering meal plans on a trial basis.

CONS
