Delightful hotel set in a tropical in St Jean in St Barthelemy about 2mn walk from the lovely beach. We originally booked it for one night but it was so delightful that we decided to stay for a 2nd night. We arrived at 10h15 am and our 2 bedrooms were already ready to check in. Fantastic reception staff Tania and... More

My wife and I and another couple stayed here three nights in May. We really enjoyed our stay here. Tania and Julie at the front desk were very sweet and helpful. The rooms, grounds and pool were pleasant. But the best thing is the location. You can easily walk to Baie St Jean (one of the island's nicer beaches). There... More

I travelled to the island to watch my son compete in a football tournament, searching for accomadation in this area is very expensive. But this hotel was most reasonable. I was very happy with my room and the hotel, it was a very comfortable stay. It was local to everything. The staff are amazing, and the gentleman who works there... More

If you are looking to be pampered and served hand over foot... this is not your place. This place is clean, comfortable and at the right spot. You are in the heart of St. Jean right above Nikki Beach. There is a lot to do in walking distance. The rooms are small but adequate and nicely decorated. The bed is... More

It's been three times and counting. For me the hotel Tropical is the perfect place. I could afford "better" accomodation than the hotel Tropical. However, I love that this hotel is a simple, family run hotel, with what I need and not much more. There is a nice, smallish, bedroom with a/c and a fan, a bathroom with shower, a... More

I stayed here after staying at another hotel on the island which had wonderful service. This was like checking into a Motel 8 after the Ritz. The customer service is awful - not helpful, aloof. They don't have any beach chairs to bring down to the beach. The rooms are in dire need of a renovation. Common areas are small... More

Let's face it, St. Bart's is and expensive place to stay. However there are options to make it a somewhat affordable holiday. The Tropical Hotel is a good choice. The inside garden is very nice, and a continental breakfast is included in the Superior rooms. The staff at reception Julie and Tanya are very nice, and accomodating so this makes... More

Stayed here for a week after I won an scholarship (so I have no idea about the price). But it was very cozy and had an friendly atmosphere! Great location with a amazing beach and Eden rock just 50m away. It was also close to some small shops and the airport. 5 minute trip with car and then you were... More

The Tropical Hotel in St. Jean is a fairly simple hotel in St. Jean. The room was comfortable, though the A/C in the main room never seemed to reach the bathroom, with a balcony facing the ocean... as well as the hotel's parking lot. The continental breakfast in the morning was pretty basic as well: coffee, juice, croissant and couple... More
