This good-value European-style hotel lies between Marigot's saltwater lagoon and oceanfront Sandy Beach, just across the street. If all that water doesn't suit you, you can dog-paddle around in the infinity pool, which is also the heart of the resort action. The hotel is spread out over five Creole-style buildings, none higher than three stories. Under new management, hotel rooms have been completely refreshed, with brand-new mattresses and a smart, contemporary décor. All have terraces or patios, some with garden and street views, other with splendid views of the lagoon—be sure to request the latter. Forty-four of the units are duplexes, which come with a loft bedroom and a downstairs living area with two twin-size convertible couches—ideal for traveling families. Les Voiles, the handsome resort restaurant, sits on a covered wooden deck overlooking the lagoon and is open for breakfast, lunch, and dinner.
