I finally splurged and stayed at the Eden Rock for a week. The hotel is as fabulous inside as it looks from the outside. I had a classic rock suite, which was an amazingly large room with a unique view of the ocean and very special decoration, and it's own large private balcony. It was a fantastic room. The setting, the beach, the attendants were all wonderful.
The only downside to this hotel is the neighborhood. Actually, one neighbor. The Nikki beach. They play very loud music all day long, which you can hear from your suite. Several nights also the music will go on and on, seemingly past midnight, making it impossible to relax. It is your nightmare from city living transported to the carribbean.
Also, the Eden Rock seems to react to this by pumping up the music itself. It has a 5 star Jean-Georges Vongerichten restaurant, and the most beautiful setting on the island, but the sophisticated dinner food is unfortunately accompanied by a loud DJ who, while not being as loud as the Nikki beach next door, strongly devalues the setting. The young and beautiful staff also pump up the music at lunch and sometimes even breakfast.
So strong pluses but one very bad minus unfortunately for this property. I do not intend to return.
