My wife and I recently returned from our second visit to Eden Rock. Once again, it didn't disappoint. Service was attentive and staff was generally helpful in arranging dinners, answering questions and making suggestions. We stayed in a Garden Cottage (least expensive room) and think this is a good value after seeing other rooms. Only downside is that these rooms (4 of them) are right by breakfast/lunch area (steps from the beach) so if you want more seclusion/privacy pick a contemporary beach room or something similar. Also, if you are going to Eden Rock soon, you may want to check and see when the beach dredging in St. Jean is complete (looks to be very soon). That was the only minor annoyance during our trip. The dredging is not bad (and looks to be almost complete), nonetheless it would've been nice to know about this beforehand in case it affects your decision on where to stay, especially at this price point. Regarding dinner spots, somewhat surprisingly some of our cheapest dinners were our best. Eden Rock's restaurant remains very good (although not our favorite) but breakfast buffett remains great. We also returned to Le Gaiac and the food there is good as well although again not our favorite and can be somewhat stuffy. We thought L'Isola (Italian) was average and very expensive and this seemed to be a consistent experience for other couples we spoke to. For pizza and a laid back yet hip atmosphere, L'Entracte right on the harbor in Gustavia was excellent and a great value (actually went there twice); it also has a younger crowd. We were also very pleased with Santa Fe (laid back, quiet, casual), La Langouste (great lobster and dover sole, in a quiet atmosphere). We also spent some time at Isle de France, very nice hotel and Spa (Flamands beach is great) and a nice option if you are looking for something a bit more secluded than Eden Rock. Overall, we had another great stay and enjoy the central location of Eden Rock / St. Jean. We will return.
