what do you think about L'Hoste in St. Martin? We are looking for a hotel on the beach that is reasonably priced

L'Hoste is not generally a resort that we sell a lot of in St. Martin.  We sell more Alamanda and Esmeralda for people looking for locations right on Orient Beach.  These are very "plain" properties, but well priced and perfectly located (especially Alamanda).

Green Cay Villas is also another good choice just up the hill from the beach offering more villa style accomodations.
