There are two airports. It is almost certain that you will arrive at the international
“Princess Juliana Airport” in the Dutch part of the island. The other one, a small airstrip, ”Grand Case Airport” is on the French side.
It is advisable to fill out your immigration form, given to you during the flight, in the plane.
When doing so you will have to fill out your place of residence.
The official address is:
Hotel Mont Vernon
1, Rue Mont Vernon
97150 Saint Martin
French West Indies (FWI)
You will travel to the apartment blocks on your own. There you will be welcomed by Andrina. She takes care of our apartment and will render assistance to you when needed. Our advice is to hire a taxi. The apartment blocks are to be found in a remote and quiet spot on the French part of the island.
When taking a taxi
This is the most practical way to arrive at your destination. Even if you intend to rent a car. It makes a one day’s car rental difference of which you can pay for the taxi. If you are tired from your journey there is a chance to get lost. Tell the driver “Hotel Mont Vernon” on the French side as your destination. It is a 45 minutes ride approximately. Before you leave the airport request the driver to phone that you are on your way. Andrina can be reached on number 00590 690 222497.
The Hotel Mont Vernon reception is closed, because the present blocks consist of apartments which are now in private hands. There are minor facilities, a small grocer’s a launderette, an internet café and a pizzeria.
If you want to rent a car
You can rent a car through Andrina, which will be delivered at the hotel the day after.
It is possible to rent a car at the airport upon arrival.
Before departing from the airport you had best contact Andrina that you are on your way.
In most cases the rental agency has a simple road map. Drive to Marigot, Grand Case (N7) into the direction of Orléans. Having passed the airstrip on your left you will arrive at a roundabout. There you will turn left into the direction of Cul de Sac, Pinel Island. On your right hand side you will see tennis courts. Next take the first road on your right ( Rue Mont Vernon). Continue following this
road, which ends at the Hotel Mont Vernon. On top of the hill you will see a former reception building where Andrina will be waiting for your arrival.
Check in time
After the last guests have left at 12.00 p.m. the apartment will have to be cleaned. The time required to do so vary. That is why check in time has been set at 16.00 (4 p.m.) or after the apartment has been ready for you.
Dinner first night and breakfast next morning
For the very first necessities of life you will be served at a simple grocery store an pizzeria located near the main building. Should this not be convenient you are of course free to take your own foods. In Sint Maarten the big supermarkets are well supplied.
Print the information above and keep this with your travel documents.
