“Exquisite dining in the Sands part - fabulous lunch”
Reviewed May 9, 2012

We arrived in St Barths on a yacht. It was suggested that St Jean was a good place to go. We loved the little bay and decided on this place for lunch. Fabulous food, glorious setting, fine wines to match. The proof in the pudding is always would you go back. With so many wonderful places to chose from in St Barths I'd always find time for this place. Would love to go back and stay sometime too. One of the few wonderful places in the world you fall upon every now and again. Well done to the creators and all the staff who keep it special.

Vavavoom, wow, shiny, sexy, adult fun with style and atmosphere galore! There is good reason this property is famed worldwide and has its following of celebrities and business moguls. Varied interiors for varied tastes and family needs. Loved basking in our private outdoor steel jacuzzi under the stars with nothing to do but... enjoy.

We stayed at the Eden Rock this spring and it was wonderful. We had two rooms, one was a suite on the rocks and the other was a beachfront room. The suite was tremendous. It was comprised of two structures--one that housed the main bedroom with a fantastic view of the sea, a great bathroom with every amenity, a large terrace overlooking the water with a patio table and chairs and sun loungers, and the other a separate "kids" cabin with two single beds and another full bathroom. The suite also had its own private pool. It is ideal for families although the kids cabin is detached from the main room. The style of the suite is more traditional. The beach front room is more modern. Both were stocked with great bath products and had excellent turn-down and housekeeping service (chocolates/macaroons and bottled water every night). The beds in both were pretty high off the ground so if you have mobility concerns, they are a little hard to climb into unassisted but super comfortable once you get there. We ate at the hotel restaurants (On the Rocks and the Sand Bar) and the food was amazing--the best we had on the island. The shrimp dishes were the best we have ever had anywhere. The breakfast buffet was included in our package and it was great (eggs, bacon, selection of fruits, cereals, cheeses, quiches, and pasteries). The staff is as nice as can be and responsive. The beach service is good--hotel guests get the best spots and fruit kabobs and free water are in ample supply. They also provide beach chairs, coolers, towels, and snorkeling gear if you want to explore the other beaches on the island. A car was included with our room. We upgraded to a convertible Mini which was a great decision. Two constructive suggestions for the hotel: first, it seemed that the conceirge/reception staff may not seamlessly communicate with each other all the time in terms of noting guest requests or reservations. This wasn't a big deal because everyone is SO nice and really helpful, but it wasn't always seamless. Second, there were 2 people providing beach service and I think there were times when an additional helper would have been useful. All in all, we had an absolutely fabulous time, the hotel is wonderful, and we can't wait to stay at the Eden Rock in the near future.

Room Tip: If you can do it, get a suite on the rock side.

Very fun and unusual hotel. Our suite harbor house didn't have much of an ocean view so disappointing. Fortunately we moved to the reef room which was more modern and had dead on ocean view !

The food is the best on the island, even better than Bonito and Isle de france. Try the lobster salad, tempura shrimp for lunch and filet for dinner, amazing.

Beware the taxi service is terrible, we waited 20 minutes on the highway, bummer. They offer a car but its not an easy island to drive so keep that in mind.

Our thoughts is if you get a nice room it worth the big $.

Ps the beds are rock hard, very French but they should offer cushioned mattress pads for Americans.

Room Tip: Next time I would ask for a from map which shows room locations as each room is unique

We visited Eden Rock with our 4 month old son and stayed at Waterlily House. It was perfect as we had our own infinity pool together with a private jacuzzi at the rear of the villa. This meant that we could put our son to sleep in his stroller and then relax with a glass of champagne in the jacuzzi as we could see him through the glass doors! Bliss. The breakfast was lovely, quite near to the house and they even served gluten free bread every morning for me as we had told them in advance of my gluten intolerance. The only downside was that the villa is not very private and you can see into it and over the swimming pool as it is on the beach. We ate fantastic room service from the restaurant most evenings once we had put our son to bed and also had a lovely meal in the restaurant one evening. We also visitied a local supermarket to stock up on some lovely wines etc as the resort is expensive but the villa had a kitchen complete with fridge, coffee maker, hob, kettle etc so we also bought some snacks and bits for light lunch etc. All in all a beautiful resort, expensive but worth it!

This hotel was not a good fit for us. There is no pool and my kids like a pool. Some rooms have small private pools but ours had only a jacuzzi. There is no kids club only a couple of canoes on the beach. The hotel is very close to the airport and although entertaining to watch the planes at first, it quickly becomes annoying and noisy. The guest services people were very helpful and friendly, but it helps that they get about 20% commission on your rentals,according to my calculations. The beach is very nice and has the calmest waters in the island. The breakfast was fine and the buffet is included in the room price. Expect to have reservations for lunch or dinner. The food was very good, and this is true for everywhere we went. The hotel felt like a private club since many people there have "time-shares" and everybody is happy to see them. If you are not a part of this group, nobody will remember your name. This is not the Ritz Cartton service in any way. The service on the beach is spotty, I believe depending on the tip and the club thing. One day I was swimming but the beach attendants took my towel and beach chair cover because it was past 5 PM, so I wasn't happy when I came out of the water. The whole place felt very enclosed, which I understand for a city hotel but not for a resort. Now I don't like to complain and I understand that the island is expensive, but for close to $3,000 per night, I would expect more. My kids still talk about our vacation to Jumby Bay last year. I bet Eden Rock will not be on the list to return to.

Spent four nights here in February in the Howard Hughes Suite. Overall we really loved the room and the place. The view from this room is amazing - looking out over the water from every side. Great sense of space - large sitting room in the middle, a kitchen and dining area on one end with the bedroom on the other end. Two large bathrooms (one with a shower).

The dining was so great we never ventured off property. We usually do explore when we travel so this was unusual for us - we just never felt the need. And, we'd visited St Barts before so much would be a repeat. The menu selection at On the Rocks was especially varied and the food delicious. Breakfast and lunch at the Sand Bar perfectly reasonable.

Staff overall were very helpful and pleasant. And, I'm glad they are protective of the guests enjoyment in favor of non-guests.

The only negative item during our stay was the loud music from the adjacent Nikki Beach. This is a restaurant / lounge on the beach just east of Eden Rock. You can rent chairs and, yes, beach beds. They play music quite loud from late morning to late afternoon. The music selection is worn-out. And, did I say loud? Their guests must suffer from bleeding ears - yikes. Anyway, the noise could not be heard in the Sand Bar or rooms further west of there. The rooms on the south or west of the rock should be quiet too. But, there are some rooms that face right to Nikki Beach or ours which was on top of the rock. I'm easily bothered by noise so it goes to show how much I enjoyed Eden Rock overall that this didn't even knock it down 1 point on my rating.
