So just got back from a short stay in SXM. Stayed at Le Centr'Hotel in Marigot which was clean, functional and convenient. I had asked about the vibe of Marigot in the evening. While I was surprised at how quiet some parts got after 5pm, we had a lovely dinner at Le Belle Epoque, which I highly recommend. Marina Royale had a pleasant vibe in the evening with people strolling around checking out the restaurants. The next morning we had a lovely breakfast at La Croissanterie. Marigot seemed so much more lively during the day and I enjoyed my short stay. Thanks to the TTOLers who gave their two cents' worth. Also enjoyed my traditional visit to the Awarak Bar both in early evening and afteroon.
