Located on the French side and a short walk to the Culinary Capital of the Caribbean, Grand Case, families will love Grand Case Beach Club because it gives you a secluded feel but really, you’re within walking distance to the local downtown. And if walking is just too much, guests can call Johnny “The Golf Cart Guy,” a local friend of the hotel, to drive them to Grand Case.
A wooden promenade walkway situated above a small cliff and the water connects guests to the beach, pool, restaurant and guestrooms. Every few steps is an ideal photo opportunity, especially during sunset! A few secluded lounge chairs can be found tucked away along the promenade and kids will love to explore and look out onto the ocean. Ceorle Rock and Anguilla can be seen in the distance and dolphins are easily spotted out at sea.
The larger-than-expected resort features multi-level suites ideal for families and the recently renovated zero-entry pool features breathtakingly blue views. Guests will no doubt be pleasantly surprised when staying at Grand Case Beach Club.

The two-bedroom ocean view suites are multi-level, apartment-like suites. A separate living room with a sleeper sofa and fully equipped kitchen is downstairs and the two bedrooms are located upstairs. The stairs to the second floor are small and somewhat steep so small children may need some assistance with the stairs. A shower/tub combo is available in the bathrooms and a half bathroom is located off the living room. Large closets can also be found.
The two-bedroom garden view suites are similar in style, but larger than the sea view. This suite is also multi-level, but one bedroom is downstairs and the second bedroom is upstairs. The suite appears wider and there is a dining table. All of the two-bedroom suites can accommodate six people.

I'm living in Anguilla and diceded to spend a day in SXM. I had an amazing surprise. The hotel, location and service were the best. I had a room on the 3rd floor with a nice balcony with one of the best views of St Martin for sure.
The pool and two beaches (yes, the property have access to two beaches) made this trip special. The hotel was so nice that I decided to no leave the property. The restaurant also is great, nice service and food. I had a Mahi Mahi during lunch and the best pain au chocolate of my life during breakfast. Thank you all for this amazing Sunday.
This place is a hidden gem in Saint Maarten. There is still evidence of the impact from the hurricane in 2017 however the property appears to be 90% rebuilt with new construction. This is a smaller property which allows for more privacy and less crowds. There is one restaurant on site where the food and staff are great. The beach is the most beautiful and interesting beach I've been to with some unique rocks however the beach is not rocky. It has soft sand and you can charge drinks and food to your room. Big shout out to Niko for taking care of us everyday with an umbrella and exceptional service. You can walk to a small town where there are a good choice of restaurants that have been also rebuilt. Please don't go here because I want to keep this property all to myself ????.
The resort's modern freshwater pool and lobby deck area were renovated in 2015. The large pool is situated somewhat in a cliff and is surrounded by a glass balcony that overlooks the ocean, so a literal sea of multiple shades of blue can be seen from nearly any direction. Younger kids will love the zero-entry shallow waters for splashing, and there are no pool steps to climb.
The pool is open from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. and no lifeguards are on duty. Guests will find numerous lounge chairs around the pool area, but no umbrellas as the wind could blow them off the cliff. But there is a nearby deck area that is under cover and provides shade; it is a short distance from the actual pool.
Guests will find two beach areas (one is larger than the other during high tides) and plenty of lounge chairs and umbrellas are available. Hammocks and tree-lined shade can also be found in a grassy area directly outside some guestrooms and above the smaller beach. Beach towels are available at the reception area and are free to guests.
Families will find tennis courts (lit at night), and non-motorized water sports and snorkel gear are included in rates, as well. An excursion desk can also assist guests with a day trip away from the resort.
Families will love the food with a view at Sunset CafÃ©, which serves breakfast, lunch and dinner along the promenade. Breakfast, which includes French pastries (free) or a full breakfast (charge), is available from 7:30 to 10 a.m. Dress is casual at the Sunset CafÃ© during the day, and it is situated along the promenade.
Planning & Tips
All About the Extras
Free Wi-Fi is available at the resort; however, it can sometimes be spotty (as it is in most of the Grand Case area) because of the proximity to the mountains.
The small fitness center features cardio machines and is available to guests for a per-day fee.
Parking is free to guests and the resort is gated.
Guests can utilize the outdoor grill area for a fee.
A small boutique filled with sundries, souvenirs and clothing is located on the property.
The Art of Smart Timing
St. Martin's high season runs from January through April and nearby Grand Case hosts a Mardi Gras night every Tuesday in March. The island has not seen a significant hurricane in several years, but hurricane season runs from June through November.
The Princess Juliana International Airport is less than a 30-minute drive to Grand Case Beach Club.
If you plan to explore the entire island, renting a car is a good idea. Guests can also explore the culinary town of Grand Case by foot, as it is about a 10-minute walk away from the resort (or call "Johnny the Golf Cart Guy" for a quick ride). A stroller for younger children is a good idea for families planning to leave the resort.
For Mom and Dad
Parents will love to sneak away for a sea-front massage for complete relaxation.
