First of all, let me start by saying that I have never written a review for anything in my life, but our honeymoon was so out of this world spectacular that I just have to do it. Eden Rock is THE best place to stay on St. Barts. We drove all over the island and saw/ate at many other luxury hotels, but Eden Rock is the most centrally located, with the best beach possible. No shells, soft , clean, sand, amazingly clear water, beach service with luxe chairs and umbrellas, and free water sports-snorkelling, kayaking, etc. The planes are fun to watch and are NOT loud or get in the way of a relaxing and blissful day at the beach. Le Toiny is gorgeous but way up on a hill (eat here but do not stay here), and Le Sereno is also luxurious but the beach in front of it had lots of rocks and was very small. Eden Rock has it all! The restaurant is delish, the rooms are superb with no detail left forgotten, and the beach is perfect. We received chocolates on our pillow every night, ice cold water brought to our chairs on the beach, Bulgari toiletries, and even a small eelctric fan to "zap" the mosquitos in our Garden Cottage (although they were not a problem). Our Garden Cottage, albeit a little cozy, was nicely decorated and had all the essential amenties. We took the ferry to St. Barts because I hate to fly on small planes. However, do not expect a smooth and peaceful sail, as it was an extremely bumpy ride and is known to be a rough ride on the ferry. Definitely hike to Columbier Beach, it is worth the 20 minute walk. Definitely eat lunch at Do Brazil, located on Shell Beach, and defintely stay at Eden Rock!!
