ST. MARTIN
LA SAMANNA
 
This white-stucco, Mediterranean-style, boutique hotel with villas that sprawl along 55 acres of pristine beachfront property on the French side of St. Martin is a 10-minute ride from the airport and 15 miles from the French capital of Marigot. Of the 81 guest accommodations, 15 rooms and three suites are located in the main hotel and the remainder in air-conditioned villas spread along the beach, each with a patio or balcony.
 
The picturesque, partially open-air restaurant sits atop a cliff looking out to the beach and sea. A panoramic open-air grill restaurant is located between the hotel bar and the swimming pool. In addition to the beach, water sports and pool, other facilities include three tennis courts, a small exercise room and a spa. The resort can arrange golf and fishing trips outside the property.
 

Strong Points: A more intimate boutique resort in a lovely setting.
