We satyed at Hotel Helianthal in September 2016. Rooms were ok, location was brilliant. Bang-smack right at the beach. Access to the beach directly from the spa in the first floor. I was a bit surprised the first morning we went for breakfast; when we came to the dining romm where they served breakfast 50% of the guests were wearing... More

The hotel has the most wonderful spa which has direct access to the beach. The spa has a myriad of jets and a hammam and you can easily spend a couple of hours per session. Even though the rooms are a bit dated, the hotel is centrally located and is on the beach. In high season, parking can be a... More

This large modern hotel is within a block of the main beach in town. Unlike many other hotels in St. Jean it is air conditioned. The staff provided excellent service. The dining room and bar is huge and overlooks the bay, what a view! The breakfast buffet is good but lacks as many options as other hotels of this quality.... More

Rooms feel a little tired but are clean and comfortable. You are a short walk from the centre of town so you have a choice of restaurants to pick from. The pool and sauna is great at the end of the day looking out onto the beautiful beach. Parking is also pretty easy nearby and free so long as you... More

Simple hotel in a great location. Art deco styling slightly undone by subsequent extensions to the original building (designed to appear like a cruise liner from inside). Large spa pools adjacent to the beach, looking out over the bay are a key feature, with breakfast served a couple of floors above with the same view. Free wifi a plus, and... More

It used to feel like there was no choice but to swallow nasty cold service but now there is trip advisor. Ended up down the street at a charming Trip Advisor recommended hotel instead. Attitude and client focused staff make all the difference.

Only stayed one night, but very happy with the quality of our room which was spacious and comfortable. Staff spoke English and were helpful and considerate. The hotel has a great location on the seafront and we enjoyed a relaxed drink at the bar with sea views. We had continental breakfast in the cafe on the ground floor. Not great,... More
