“Lovely experience!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 14, 2013

The view from Le Pitit Morne is spectacular! It is in such a quiet and serene part of St. Barth's. I felt truly at peace. The room comes equip with everything you need (even a converter for US appliances). The kitchen had everything you need for cooking. My advice would be to rent a car. It was only 25 euros and the taxi charges much more. Great place and pretty affordable in the off-season.

We stayed 8 nights in early March. We couldn't have been happier with our decision to stay at this property. The hotel is located on a hill in Colombier and offers great views of the ocean. The rooms are basic, but very nice, clean and comfortable. The bathrooms have been recently remodeled. The units are pretty airy and spacious, and have a fully equipped kitchen and furnished patio -- this is a great spot for having breakfast every morning or an afternoon drink overlooking the ocean. The staff, in particular Tania and Caroline, are also very nice and helpful (they reserved the car for us for a great rate with Gumbs). We were also very happy to have been greeted with a nice chilled bottle of wine upon arrival that we could enjoy while settling in. The property is relatively small and intimate (there are only 12 units). We had a superior unit (#10) and felt that it looked exactly like the pictures on the website.

DO NOT be concerned with the distance to/from town (St. Jean and/or Gustavia). The island is very small (only 8 squared miles). It's only a 10 minute drive (note: you'll need a car to get around the island regardless of where you stay).

In all, we think this property offered a great value in St. Barts. Whenever we come back to St. Barts, we'll definitely stay here again!

Room Tip: All rooms are pretty private. Superior room number 10 looks exactly like the pictures on the website...

I recently stayed 2 nights here and have to admit that my decision was heavily weighted on price. After arriving, we were warmly greeted by the staff who quickly escorted us to our room, which was on the second floor. I was instantly taken aback by the gorgeous view from our balcony (I believe that every room has a view). The room was also equipped w/ a free, wireless and reliable wifi connection. As for the furnishings, they were simple, yet adequate. If you expect luxury accomodations, look elsewhere. However, if you're simply looking for a clean and more affordable hotel in St Barths, I would consider this. The drawback is that it is a bit further out (~15-20 minute drive) from the "center" of town, namely St Jean and Gustavia.

Like the other reviewers, I can't stop saying great things about Le P'tit Morne. Not only do you have great views, but you're also close to Columbier beach, one of my favorites on the island. The path to the beach is a moderately challenging hike, which is fun for starting the day.

The room itself is somewhat bare bones, but comfortable and air conditioned. Bathrooms have been recently renovated. The kitchen is underwhelming, although certainly helpful for breakfasts and the occasional light dinner in. What's amazing about St. Bart's (and I guess France in general) is that you can find high-calibre wine, pate, cheese, pastries and fruit at a regular grocery store for affordable prices. It's look finding Whole Foods groceries at a Super Target.

Of course, certain types of travelers would probably be better off at another hotel. For instance, if you're looking for a hotel where you can emerge from the spa and grab a martini on your way to the infinity pool, Le P'tit Morne wouldn't be your first choice. But if you're curious about a local experience on St. Bart's, I would look no further.

I don't know where to begin. The experience my husband and I had here was so amazing that I wished my entire stay was on this island at this hotel, I could have spent a month here. The location of the hotel is on top of this little hill (morne = mountain) yet it is not far from Gustavia (central city) at all its a mere 10 minute drive along the most perfectly paved roads and the most amazing scenic views. All of the rooms here have ocean views ( I was told this by host ) and what makes them extra special is that they have kitchenettes outside!!! The kitchen is covered for rain purposes and has an electric wall that you can lower in times of rain but it is so adorable. My husband would get up in the mornings and make coffee and eggs and we'd have cheeses and jam and look out into the hills and oceans.

Not only is this hotel totally affordable but the kitchenette is what makes it more amazing because honestly you don't have to eat all of your meals out even thought eating out in st barts is amazing. There's a supermarket in Gustavia with all sorts of things and its totally affordable. If we were to have stayed longer we'd just eat our breakfasts at home. What's also great is that the room service does wash the dishes, I personally love this since washing dishes for me is most painful and I hate it.

note : its a small hotel, there's no pool or restaurant or bar so if that's what you really need to feel like you're on vacation and having a good time, don't come here


The perfect hotel in the most perfect island, what more could you ask for?

Room Tip: we were in 8 but i think all of the rooms have an ocean view

We're a couple in our 50s visiting St Barts over the Christmas holiday. The island was packed and most quality accommodations were ranging from $500 to over $1000/night. We stumbled across Le P'tit Morne online and fell in love with the simplicity, location, modest prices, and views of the hotel. It's not large - maybe a dozen rooms. The only room left during the time we were there was the "New Moon" room, which is actually a suite and pictured on their Deluxe Room webpage - http://www.timorne.com/timorne-hotel-stbarth-deluxe-room.html.

Everything worked out beautifully. It turned out the New Moon room would've been our choice anyway. It's their newest room and perches by itself on a little outcropping of land adjacent to the pool. As a result, it's extremely private - no neighbors on either side. There are instead two patios, one off the kitchen with a table for outdoor dining while overlooking the north shore of the island, and the other off the bathroom, with lounge chairs. And there's a private access gate to the pool from there.

The accommodations were comfortable, clean, and if not fancy, certainly enjoyable. It reminded me a little of lake house accommodations - comfortable bed, well appointed and spacious bathroom with upscale toiletries, and a serviceable kitchen. The utensils were ordinary, as were the plates and glasses, but everything was there and the appliances (including a full sized fridge) enabled an enjoyable week for eating in and storing leftovers from the cafes, bakeries, and restaurants we visited on the island.

The only potential downside was the small road outside our room's balcony. At first we were concerned, but quickly determined the traffic on that part of the island is so light, we were almost never disturbed and practically forgot it was there.

Overall, it's highly recommended. The owners are so kind and thoughtful, making our stay a home away from home. When returning to St Barts, we'll make Le P'tit Morne ("The Little Mountain") our first choice.

Room Tip: All the rooms have spectacular views. We like the New Moon room for its added privacy.

Although it is a little remote from the city (you will need a car in St Barths anyways) the view from the room is magnificent. The rooms have kitchens which helps you experience the life as a native. and enjoy all the nice markets and pastries the island has to offer. The staff is very friendly. We will definitely stay there again.

Room Tip: Choose the rooms with an ocean view. The ones in the back don't have one. All rooms are quiet.
