St Martin - La Samanna Luxury Resort

Im heading over to Baie Longue, La Samanna on the island of St Martin in the French West Indies at the end of the month - and just wondered if anyone had been or knew anyone who has been and has any recommendations or views on it?

Heres a link:

Oh have I?!?! We've been for the last 4 or 5 years and the lack of signal has been a right twat - let's see if it reaches our cabin before I cancel and join you & your family . Couldn't face going abroad with the kids this year but will be blasting Florida next year .

edit - reading the website I reckon the free WiFi will just be in the reception building

Are you going via Amsterdam or a US airport? Just curious. I went from Miami just for a few days and it's a great place. Didn't stay at that resort but I love the island, especially the beach at the end of the runway.

I have been to St Martin a few times but not for a few years. The island was divided into a French half and a Dutch half. There are some great beaches but like many Caribbean islands you do have to be a but careful where you wander from a security point of view. There are several casinos that I believe are on the Dutch side. There are a few nice restaurants in Marigot on the French side.

Interesting. Never got an impression of any iffy security as we wandered about. Went to the Cayman Islands afterwards and that was the same.

Probably good advice, nevertheless.

First Class In that case I'd go London City Airport (based on your location) to AMS and then get the KLM 747-400 direct to SXM.

Anyway, will be a fantastic holiday - enjoy!
