The last time we were here was 11 years ago and we had gone to Isle de France about 4 years in a row. We returned a couple of weeks ago. It is still a lovely hotel. The setting and accommodations are great. Most of the service was very good. Our complaint was that when we set up different restaurants... More

Gorgeous hotel overlooking beach and sea. Superb service, beautiful appointments, everything just right. Great place for honeymoon, destination wedding, or romantic get-away. Even in the summer, breezes off the sea keep it always pleasant.

If you want to try this Hotel because you think LMVH (Louis Vuitton Group) is perfect in everything they do, forget it! This was my 1st visit to St. Barths and I must admit that my expectations were really high, specially after knowing that the island now have a Cheval Blanc, aka the Louis Vuitton Hotel. The Island is beautiful,... More

I have stayed numerous times at this exquisite resort. Now, when I come in yearly by boat, I never miss lunch at CB. The lunch venue on the beach is a great experience.

Normally it might take me a few weeks to write a TripAdvisor review, but in this case, I couldn’t even wait 24 hours to share our amazing vacation experience at what is now our favorite resort (and island)...

This was a lovely light delicious lunch, excellent maitre d, unrushed relaxing stunning location the type of experience you expect on an island like St. Barths. Expensive but feels worth it, you can then spend the afternoon on Flamands beach, so its well worth taking the time to go there. Definitely one of my favorites.

After reading multiple reviews and hearing a few reports on CB, my partner and I booked in lunch on a Friday and loved it. I'm a little surprised at one review stating that they didn't serve cheeseburgers as this is clearly fine dining on the beach, not Burger King. The chilled pea and ham soup was delicious and the wine... More
