I stayed at the Carl Gustaf in May so took advantage of their low season specials packages Which made the week stay still expensive but possible. The hotel has a beautiful view of the harbor and unlike other hotels is walking distance to Gustavia center and its shops and restaurants. No beach of its own but 5 minutes from shell beach.
The rooms are nicely appointed and spacious. The individual pool although a good idea was cold and attracted many Mosquitos so we did not use it .
We were picked up at airport in air conditioned car with cold towels and water .
Service was excellent and the staff very accommodating. Food was excellent. Best sunset views on island from their lounge.
One important note: because the hotel is on a hill, depending on your room location it is necessary to climb multiple flights of stairs to get to hotel lobby restaurant and spa. Okay for us but could be problematic for some who are unaware of this.
Definitely will go again.
