I would be surprised if they are actually open by then, as there doesn't seem to be a lot going on, according to reports. But we'll see.. Maybe they can make a go of it, as that property sure has gone through a bunch of different names..

Will never be staying there...let your own conscience guide you to the correct course of action. There is only one so it should be easy.

I opened the link - interesting one sentence description of Sr Martin

"... Secrets St. Martin is on the French side known for its outdoor markets and French and Indian cuisine ..."

Not sure why but I have a mental block where this particular property is concerned. I remember L’Habitation at the top of the hill and I remember the names RIU and Radisson but would someone please remind me AGAIN what it was called before these names? I remember so vividly walking through the open air atrium there and thinking how very beautiful it was while at the same time, thinking how much I would not have wanted to be in such a totally remote area, as beautiful as it was.

Before L'Habitacio de Lonvilliers, it was Le Meridien

In French, le and la are both used for “the” and represent the masculine and feminine variants that French uses. French makes a distinction between "masculine and feminine objects", people use le for masculine things/persons and la for feminine things/persons

That's right. I remember it being Le Meridian back around 1999?

And for years before that as well. It was so very beautiful there.

I remember the Le and La and that they are the equivalent of the English word ‘the’ but it’s distinguishing which proper noun is which that causes me the problems. I can’t think in terms of a door being feminine but a dog being masculine. And besides which, it’s been waaaay too many years since I aced my NY high school French III regents exam. 😄😄

It looks beautiful, but I remember just a couple of years ago, my neighbors's son stayed there, on their honeymoon, and didn't see
much of SXM at all. (No wise remarks--lol) blush
A beautiful location, but not a convenient one.

With my sand gravity, it might not matter for me!! lol
Nice for a few days.

Those languages all have gender and quantity......If you make yourself understood that is all that counts.
I'm having a hard time remembering English! LOL
