What a delightful hotel - and what a beautiful cove. The Caribbean at its picture post card best.
Our room wasn't huge, but rather nice with a decent sized terrace and bathroom. The pool not massive, but adequate and very warm. The beach is to die for and when we were there last week, the sea was like a mill pond and azure blue - perfect for swimming and no usual shelf that is sometimes found in Caribbean beach resorts, which sometimes makes it difficult to get in and out of the water. No sea urchins either! The beach restaurant was good as was the formal dining room. St. Barts is the tiniest of islands so a car is probably not necessary as taxis are readily available and the drivers most obliging. Food and wine is expensive as you would imagine, The island is steep and hilly and nobody walks or cycles anywhere. For a complete 'chill' this is the place to be - don't expect casinos, entertainment etc. but for sun and sea and French cuisine it couldn't be bettered. We flew there from Antigua with Trade Winds - in an eight seater 'plane.
