We chose to return to Cheval Blanc again this summer with some trepidation since we knew some renovations had been made. Simply beautiful. All the changes were tasteful and keeping with the elegance of the hotel. There are two things that I would say could be changed by management. One, the beach suites, are magnificent but need a splash of... More

Great service, excellent food, can't think of a reason not to come back! Lots of great little touches and for a 5 star facility they don't nickel and dime you for every minor request. They coordinated all transport to and from the airport and for each dinner reservation...No shortage of great food.

still nice place but has changed and not for the better ! service is lacking attention to details, it has been sold twice I think in the last 2 years and is missing the consistency it had before, spa is still very good.

My husband took me to Cheval Blanc on a surprise honeymoon after our wedding in June and it was absolutely amazing. Every detail of Cheval Blanc is without comparison; from the service, to the grounds, the views, the spa, the food, and amenities. We stayed in a ocean view room and it was perfect. The room was immaculate (cleaned twice... More

We've recently stayed at the Cheval Blanc (june 22nd -28th), and it exceeded our -already high- expectations. The staff is very well prepared and nice (especially the front desk and concienrge), food is outstanding - albeit expensive, but hey... it's st barts! - and the structure itself takes you breath away. Also memorable was the SPA. I was celebrating my... More

I had the extraordinary pleasure of enjoying four nights here with my wife on the occasion of our 20th wedding anniversary in June. It was a wonderful experience from the moment we were picked up at the airport to the moment we said our goodbyes. First of all the location: Anse de Flamands is seven minutes from the airport and...

We stayed in a Garden Bungalow because it was the only room available at the time, but I think I would have loved this hotel even more if we had stayed in one of the beach side rooms. Rooms were luxurious and beautiful, although not as large as we had expected. The hotel is on Flamands beach, which is one... More

My wife and I recently returned from a week spent at Cheval Blanc in St Barth for a much needed vacation.

Stayed here in February with a friend. The room was exquisite with every amenity a seasoned traveler could hope for. There was, however, a persistently unpleasant smell of sewage on the walkway to our room. For what they charge this isn't really acceptable. Service could be great and it could be very snooty, just depended on who you were dealing... More
