“definite best choice”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 6, 2013

this place helped us fall in love with st. barts on the first date. we stayed in a superior cottage for a week and enjoyed every minute of it. from the best 'petit dejeuner' watching the island wake up, to incredible sunsets over st. jean from our patio (unless wading up to the coolest infinity edge in town). great help discovering the island / or oversight for those in need of it, impeccable service, and the most enjoyable work-out space we've been in for a while. best of all: others who've made the same choice.

Room Tip: can only speak for the superior cottage. at this location, the views from second floor balconys make...

My husband and I spent 4 November nights in a "Standard Garden Cottage" # 21 at Hotel Le Village St. Jean. This was our first overnight stay on the island, having only visited on day trips via ferry from St. Maarten in the past. I did a lot of research trying to find the right place for us to stay and was very happy with having discovered Hotel Le Village. I was a little bit familiar with the location and knew it would be convenient. Specifically it is about a third of a mile directly above Nikki Beach / Eden rock location (steep street). We were price conscious so I chose a standard garden cottage at 180 euro per nt. The closest other price categories were the newly renovated hotel rooms at 160 euro or the standard terrace cottage (the upper floor of the standard lower level garden cottage) at 240 euro. I really was unsure of the property layout and it seemed many of the prior reviews were for more superior categories of cottages than what we were going to book. Location wise, we did see that the beautifully redone hotel "rooms" (4 or 5 of them) lay directly above the steep road (off to the right side as you drive uphill) and some earlier reviewers commented on road noise (being a light sleeper I did not book that - however I do not think there is that much traffic and the rooms are very nice with a little balcony too and some foliage creating a bit of a buffer between balcony and street). Actually most of the property is off to the right side (the uphill side) as you drive up that road, including reception, breakfast area, pools, and all the higher category cottages. Only the STANDARD garden cottages and their second floor standard TERRACE cottages (I think there are only two of each) were off to the left side of the road....our driveway being immediately across the road from the main driveway into the property / reception. From the driveway level, we had a lovely paved path down to our garden level. LOTS of outdoor space for us. Big private lawn just outside the bedroom window (you won't really use that), and a BIG wooden deck with lounge chaises and umbrella located on the downhill side of our path. Very tiny look of the sea thanks to a tree on a private property below, but still a nice relaxing view from the deck. Only the little kitchen area just outside the entrance to the bedroom was a bit on the older side and the little dining table there also a bit small but we did not need to make meals or spend much time in this kitchen area. The bedroom was quite big with tons of storage, as was the bathroom. I am particular about elbow room and storage so this was good. Nice decor in both.
We got into a lovely routine here ...... enjoy a relaxed breakfast (with a view) of the fresh fruit cup, good breads, pastries, jams, nutella ...cereals coffees and perhaps a little conversation with another guest. Then we were off in the car to explore other areas for a few hours like Flamands beach (I really liked it) or Gouvenor (not as much to my liking but others seem to enjoy) . Midday we would return to our cottage and enjoy a nice lunch on our deck. We had gone to a Marche and stocked up on (fresh) baguette, olive oil, prosciotto, cheeses, and some great pate spreads ...along with some beer and other beverages, all kept in our little kitchen and fridge. We would open up the deck umbrella, bring out the ipad with mini speakers to enjoy some music and have a nice lunch. Afterwards, off to St Jean beach. We used the big parking lot right across from where the airport road hits the beach area by Tom Beach hotel / La Plage and this worked really well. Back to the hotel in late afternoon, perhaps a drink on our deck (we bought mosquito coils from the front desk and had brought some OFF with us), then out to dinner. Re Restaurant choices, We loved the magic of the beautifully lit garden at Eddies in Gustavia and very fair pricing there too. A big more pricy but great atmosphere dining ON the beach at La Plage (just down the road), and also at Eden Rock Top of the Rock.
I must mention the staff at Hotel Le Village is wonderful ...John Paul (JP) welcomed us and gave us a tour..... Glenda (hope I remember that right) on the cleaning staff was amused by my wanting to peek into all kinds of other "rooms" if she happened to be in there working (I love to check out all the options), and really everyone was great. OH - we did outfit ourselves with all kinds of beach gear from the storage room near reception ...2 matching beach chairs, a noodle for me, fins and a body board for my husband, and an umbrella. That stuff is luck of the draw for what is available but we got everything we were looking for and that is a nice benefit.
We certainly hope to return to Hotel Le Village again and I hope this review is helpful as to what to expect with a STANDARD garden cottage

Room Tip: We stayed in Standard Garden cottage #21, not much of a view (sea wise) but quite comfortable and lo...

My husband and I just returned from a 5 night stay at Le Village. We selected this small hotel based on the positive reviews in Tripadvisor. We were in a lovely 'traditional terrace cottage". We had a very spacious outside area that overlooks their infinity pool and also beautiful St. Jean Bay. We especially enjoyed the hammock. Their was also an outside kitchen, dining table and chaise lounges. We spent most of out time out there.

The staff was very gracious when we arrived early. They showed us around the grounds and to our cottage. They were especially helpful in arranging a catamaran excursion for us.

The traditional French breakfast of croissants, French breads, fresh fruit,cereal etc. was a nice touch that was included.

We also used the fitness cottage daily that had all the essential equipment for a good workout.

I would highly recommend this small hotel. The staff was very gracious and helpful throughout our first stay in St. Barths. We will definitely me back to stay at Hotel Le Village on our next trip.

Just got home from a two week stay in the French West Indies and my last 4 days were spent here in room 18. It doesn't get any better then this! Our room was spectacular with a view to match. The owner is very charming and loves the service she provides and it shows. Everything down to the robe knobs in the bathroom are chosen with a wonderful touch. The fitness room over looks the pool area and has a view to die for. It contains the the usual trend mill, weights and mirrors but the the view makes for an amazing workout. Driving in St. Barth is not for the faint of heart and this hotel is close to many places to eat and a nice beach even if it is at the bottom of a very steep hill. Leave your rental car here and explore by foot.

Room Tip: All the rates are high on this island, so go ahead and splurge and get a view room.

One of the best hotels i have already stayed. Amazing staff and customer service, a lovely pool with an infinity wall, very nice and clean accomodations. About the breakfast it is a typical French one with all those beads and home made jams. Certainly it is a place i want to stay again!!

This property is more a "villa cottage" style property rather than a hotel. The rooms are very private and and have beautiful views of St. Jean Bay. Very close proximity to the beach, shops and town. All close walking distance. The rooms are great. We stayed in #12. It was a Superior room with a WONDERFUL view and great, modern furnishings. Spend the extra and get one of these rooms! The pool was wonderful and intimate. The breakfast and and game room cozy and homey. The staff was very, very helpful and friendly. They were always there for dinner suggestions and also maps and helpful advice. I loved the fact that it was very laid back, not like some of the other properties on the island that sometimes can come off as too chic, off putting or trying too hard to appeal to the nightclub crowd.

Cannot say enough about this property. It's truly a hidden gem. Would come back for sure!

Room Tip: Room 12 is amazing! Great views!

This hotel was fabulous. We had one of the best rooms---Superior Ocean View cottage and just loved it. Interiors were wonderfully designed with a zen quality that we loved!
Carole, at the breakfast area was outstanding as we so looked forward to her sweet hospitality
each morning. What a gem she is!
Location was one of the best, we rented a car so we didn't walk down to the beach but the location is up on a hill nestled in a fabulous tropical setting.
Bertrand, the owner was great as was the darling gal who greeted us and showed us around to our room when we first arrived.
Would not hesitate to recommend!

Room Tip: I would ask for an upstairs room in the newer refurbished cottages because the soundproofing was no...
