My husband and I just returned from our first trip to Villa Rainbow, and wanted to say that all the raves are earned. Chris and Jean-Louis, the owners, are the most gracious of hosts, providing a warm, welcoming environment, and ever eager to help with suggestions for restaurants, beaches, or activities. The building is beautiful, and the gardens are amazing.... More

My partner and I live in Texas, so we usually travel to Mexico for a tropical getaway. However, we decided to go to Villa Rainbow when some friends who had been there told us we MUST go! They were right. Pic Paradis is heaven on earth. Villa Rainbow is charming home that looks like something out of a storybook. It... More

The glowing reviews by others are well deserved. It is our fourth annual trip to the Villa Rainbow for ten days and it gets harder and harder to leave, only alleviated by the fact that we quickly book our next year's trip. Chris and JL are very gracious and run a beautiful, first class guest house with an always interesting... More

My partner and I just returned from our first visit to Saint Martin. It was a fantastic trip and much of it is due to Chris and Jean-Louis, the hosts of Villa Rainbow. The property is stunning and peaceful with magical vistas. The road to the house is daunting at first, but one quickly becomes accustomed to the drive up.... More

We stayed 12 nights over Christmas. The location is beautiful, and the gardens are really lovely. Early evening everyone converged on the terrace for a little drink of wine or beer. Flavoured rum was also offered and I made the mistake of thinking it was cordial, and paid with a sore head the next day. Will I ever learn? No,... More

I stayed in many gay owned hotels around the world, however this the second time in my life, I experienced such a wonderful hospitality. Villa rainbow is located almost at the top of... More

This is my first time writing a review for a hotel or bed and breakfast! Words cannot describe what a wonderful time my partner and I had at Villa Rainbow in St. Martin. I had accidentally stumbled across their website and was a little nervous about booking a room for the New Year's Holiday since I knew nothing about the... More

Not knowing what to expect, we booked only for 7 nights, which we later extended to 12. That says a lot about our degree of satisfaction. As has been pointed out by other reviewers, the drive up to the villa is quite challenging at first but after a couple of rides up and down we joked about how boring it... More

This is almost the highest house on St Martins, so close to heaven, and the service, surroundings and views are heavenly. Chris and Jean Louis are saints who ensure the garden and house are to the highest standard. We have been three times and will willingly return at the drop of a hat! The road up to the house is...

After the adventurous drive up the winding, sometimes unpaved road that afforded us breath-taking, panoramic views of Pic du Paradis, we reached the glorious Villa Rainbow. Before we even managed to get out of our car, Chris, our charming and gracious host, was there to greet us. He gave us a tour of the luscious gardens, the swimming pool, the... More
