We typically do snow/ski vacations but this year, the family voted the Caribbean. We decided on St. Martin because of the diversity of activities and the ease of airfare as well as the two countries on one island. That gave it a world/global feel. Once we found Luxury Retreats, we decided that this would seal the deal and indeed it did. They took care of us from beginning to end. The concierge service is extremely well done and takes so much stress out of the vacation. Everything they recommended was right on target!. The Villa was just like the picture-it was not embellished in the least. The local concierge and transportation people rounded out the package. This was the perfect getaway!

The house was just as the pictures showed and more -- the rooms were spacious, the lap pool was wonderful as well as the other pool. We enjoyed the ping-pong and the exercise machine. What made it really nice were the multiple seating areas. As far as what was needed that was not there: This is a large house with a large kitchen, the utensils in the kitchen as well as pots and pans were very lacking. Also, since there was not a lot of wind, the mosquitoes were bad which made it uncomfortable during the day and the evening because all of the house is open-air. Also, the floors in the common areas got VERY SLICK when it rained (which it did quite a bit). I know there are some things that you cannot change, but I would restock the kitchen with cooking utensils as well as have on hand when guests arrive mosquito repellant as they may not have brought with them.

Monica Allard convinced us to rent this property rather than a few others our group originally had in mind. This was an excellent choice by Monica. We would not have found the marvelous villa without her help. She also recommended renting vehicles, which was definitely helped make our vacation more enjoyable. The villa was magnificent - far exceeding any pictures or reviews that we had seen. Plum Bay and Terres Basses were also exceptional. Our excursions on the Scoobitoo and the dinner cruise also went well. Eddie make two excellent recomendations for dinners at the Tropicana and Mario's Bistro. Everything we needed was easily within a short driving distance of the villa. - Billy A., Virginia, USA

We had a wonderful vacation in VIlla Grand Bleu. The house is truly fantastic, with incredible swimming pools and stunning view on the ocean. We were very well welcomed, with the rental car waiting for us in front of the house. We really enjoyed the Chef service, and the food and service were of high standards. The only disappointment was due to the service provided by the on-site concierge, which was not consistent with the standing of the villa and the price we paid for it. In fact, we get better advice from the Chef from Fabulous feasts who also made the booking for our various activities! - Fabien T., ,

Grand Bleu is the perfect venue for a couples\' trip. The house is modern and elegant and the four master suites allow lots of privacy. The location is convenient to attractions on both sides of the island. If I have to cite drawbacks, they would be the pools are quite cold (perhaps because of limited sun exposure in the winter) and the nearby (7 min. walk) beach has too many rocks for swimming. However, it is a nice place to lie in the sun. I highly recommend Grand Bleu to anyone. We\'re planning a return trip next year. P.S. Luxury Retreat\'s customer service is wonderful. We had a few small problems with the appliances, etc. and they responded immediately. - Tiffany T., Maryland, USA

Grand Bleu is a stunning villa! Everything about is was perfect. The sunset views are amazing and the different swimming pools were so much fun. The daily housekeeper was wonderful.....she did a superb job and was so discreet we never knew she was there. The service provided by Luxury Retreats was exceptional as usual. Would definitely return to St. Martin and Grand Bleu. - Nancy S., Pennsylvania, USA

Grand Bleu is a beautiful villa. Very modern and clean with a spectacular view. Gorgeous kitchen makes you happy to stay in and cook. The bedrooms are all very large with huge bathrooms. I especially enjoyed the outdoor shower in the master bedroom. The only criticism I would offer is that the main part of the house, the living/dining area should be air conditioned. At dusk, when the mosquitoes come out and we had to close the doors and windows, it was unbearable to stay in the house. We had to retreat to the airconditioned bedroom. Aside from that, I will definately return to Grand Bleu.
