Hoteliers Association: "the real revival of the territory will be at the end of 2019"


On July 150, the Saint Martin hoteliers association listed 14 rooms available out of the 1163 member hotels, compared to 900 before Irma. The association brings together, among others, the six largest hotel complexes in the territory: Le Riu, now Sole Resorts, Club Orient, Mercure, Beach Hôtel, Grand Case Beach Club and La Samanna, which alone account for normal times around 70 rooms and employ around XNUMX% of the hotel staff on the French side.  

At present, only 5 of the 14 hotels are open. And none of them work fully. Moreover, 100 of the 150 rooms available in total are located at the Mercure - out of the 180 the establishment had before Irma.

As for the forecasts for December 2018, the next tourist season, they are 454 rooms. "The real revival of the territory will be at the end of 2019" advances Patrice Seguin, president of the association of hoteliers and director of the Beach Hotel. "This winter, if we do a half season it will already be not bad," he predicted pragmatically. Apart from its hotel, all the others should be completely renovated at the end of 2019.
