We just returned from a 7-day stay in the Beige room of Le Karibuni Lodge. We thoroughly enjoyed it, and it served as a great home base to return to from our daily activities. The rooms and adjoining patio/deck/porch are spacious, the plunge pool adds a nice touch (especially after a full day at the beach), the free continental breakfast... More

We only stayed for a couple of days (side trip from Anguilla) but can not recommend Karibuni enough. We had two suites...didn't expect a little kitchen in each suite but loved it. The pool was small but great. The day on Pinel was fantastic and we will repeat. There was a boat that took us there and an amazing waiter... More

We stayed in the Pink room with the private pool and it was SO worth the price. Staying here was the highlight of our trip to St. Martin. We rented a car at the airport and drove to Karibuni Lodge. It was a little difficult to find, and the one road getting to it was under repair, but once you... More

From the moment we arrived we were given such a lovely and friendly welcome by Karl who showed us to our accommodation where we were stunned by the most beautiful view. The room was very large and comfortable with a very large deck overlooking the swimming pool. Included in the room rate is a free ferry to Pinel Island with... More

My husband and I just returned from a week at Karibuni and had a wonderful time. The small hotel was in a nice quiet area, the rooms were huge and had wonderful patios, the breakfast every morning was delightful (although didn't help my attempt to avoid pastries...haha), and Manon and Karl would very helpful and sweet. In addition to the... More

We chose St. Martin in part because we heard wonderful things about Karibuni; we are so glad we did. We were looking for a destination to celebrate our anniversary and Karibuni Lodge was perfect. We were welcomed by Karl who could not have been more helpful or accommodating. This service extended to every person we encountered. Truly a family run... More

We just returned from a 2 week visit to the Karibuni Lodge and loved it. Everything previous reviewers mentioned are spot on. We are always looking for an hotel/B&B that is a destination in its self and the Karibuni Lodge definitely meets this requirement. Since st Maarten is a small island, everything is close. So you have the option to... More

Karibuni Lodge made our honey amazing. Manon, the lodge manager, had checked in with us a week prior to arrange a taxi for us from the airport. When we got there the room was ready, cleaned and she had a surprise Champagne toast for us. That was just the first half hour! We stayed in the beautiful pink room. We... More
