I finally splurged and stayed at the Eden Rock for a week. The hotel is as fabulous inside as it looks from the outside. I had a classic rock suite, which was an amazingly large room with a unique view of the ocean and very special decoration, and it's own large private balcony. It was a fantastic room. The setting, the beach, the attendants were all wonderful.

The only downside to this hotel is the neighborhood. Actually, one neighbor. The Nikki beach. They play very loud music all day long, which you can hear from your suite. Several nights also the music will go on and on, seemingly past midnight, making it impossible to relax. It is your nightmare from city living transported to the carribbean.

Also, the Eden Rock seems to react to this by pumping up the music itself. It has a 5 star Jean-Georges Vongerichten restaurant, and the most beautiful setting on the island, but the sophisticated dinner food is unfortunately accompanied by a loud DJ who, while not being as loud as the Nikki beach next door, strongly devalues the setting. The young and beautiful staff also pump up the music at lunch and sometimes even breakfast.

So strong pluses but one very bad minus unfortunately for this property. I do not intend to return.

Room Tip: Ask for a contemporary beach room. Avoid the rock suites as they are all located on the Nikki beach side and suffer from day and night loud music.

This place does it right! Been here a few years ago for lunch and I knew then that I need to stay here next time I am on the island, and I glad I did! The beach room was great right on the water with great views and a great place to relax everything you need! The beach was awesome and the staff was there to make sure guest were taken care of. This is a small island so most everything is imported so its very expense . If you are looking for a deal this is not the place for you , expect to pay and don't complain.

Restaurants by Jean Georges, beach by God. This boutique hotel has charming rooms built into a rock, and a stretch of rooms and suites along the beach. No pool, but 2 restaurants and a beach club down the way. Every detail thought out, every moment divine.

When they say six star, they mean six star!!!!! A trip of a lifetime! Not for the budget traveler. At Eden Rock you will never hear the word "NO" as they will do everything possible to make sure you are happy. The food is wonderful! Breakfast at the Sand Bar is simple yet delicious! Lunch will awaken the palate with many fresh tasty choices. The service is beyond any I have ever experienced. We spent the days at our own little spot with reserved beach lounges for your room only, a waiting bucket of ice with bottled water, terry covered cushions in white with lush terry towels atop. Bar service while on a float in the bay. The rock and coral surrounding the hotel is great for daily snorkel trips from the beach. Room service with fresh towels at different times during the day-wonderful. We never saw anyone cleaning the room yet it was always clean when we returned. Upon check in we were greeted outside on the deck overlooking the water. We were offered a complimentary beverage while the hostess went over our portfolio. There was a personal tour of the hotel before we arrived at uniquely decorated room, bags already neatly placed in the room. A complimentary snack and bottle of wine was delivered to our room shortly after arriving. I cannot say enough great things about Eden Rock.....A dream come true!!!

Room Tip: If you stay in a room facing the bay, its a fantastic view. The rooms on the opposite side of the Sand Bar may be a bit noisy for some with the neighboring beach bar but we enjoyed the music.

The overall feeling we came away with is positive. The first day we ate at the Sand Bar for lunch and the On The Rocks for dinner. Be prepared for €€€€€! But we knew that going in. The included breakfast for the week was less than memorable. I don't mind it being the same fare daily, eggs, sausage, bacon, array of breads and cereals... But why couldn't the HOT items have been hot? We got to breakfast daily by 9 or 9:30 and the eggs, bacon, quiche, sausage were stone cold. I guess get to breakfast by 7... The night we arrived, we had room service and each ordered the Brie cheese burger cooked in truffle oil. Way too rich. Up at the On The Rocks restaurant the staff overall is friendly but seemed rushed and looking for who's who, rather than taking care of you. We ate twice at the restaurant and one night got our entrees before the appetizer. Ahem.... Really? Jean-George?? Shameless, IMO. But the food is excellent for the most part. Just really felt shuffled off quickly both times. Edward, one of the bartenders is terrific and a true mixologist. Just delicious drinks.

The beach is the real sell of this resort. The beach staff is good. We had a cottage for the week so always got leftover beach chairs and spots as the villas take priority. Not sure how this is fair, but that is how it goes. The room was pretty but a bit small. Only one sink in the bathroom and only got washcloths half of the week. I know they aren't used in Europe, but Americans NEED washcloths!!

Again the beach is the draw. And we found plenty of fun a short walk away at the beach bar La Plage at the TomBeachHotel. Loved that space for mojitos and paninis. Watching the planes take off and land never got old, crazy tight landing strip. A 10 minute walk adjacent to the landing strip gets you to a small strip mall with La Suprette and the Grand Marche grocery store for all your provisions. The wine prices at the Market were comparable to what we pay here in NYS... So a good buy. Eat breakfast/lunch at Les Jardines in the 'mall' too. Charming colorful French bistro! Loved it.

When you exit the property, St. jean has lots of bistros and shopping, easily walkable. We liked Le Piment for tapas. Tried to eat at Ki Ki Mo, but the chef had stepped out and no one knew how to make a breakfast sandwich without him there.... Suspect, but this IS the Caribbean and things operate differently than the uptight US! Also make sure you find The Hideaway for pizza and escargot and the house vanilla rum.

The hotel had little to no American TV. No Sunday football playoff for instance.

It was our first time to St. Barth's. We like a resort as opposed to a villa as we don't want to bother with groceries immediately or driving. Overall, we give the resort 2 thumbs up. It was nice and small and easy to navigate.

Room Tip: Get a villa if you are of those means, you get a car. Get the cottage if you are there for the beach, the island and the relaxation that the Caribbean is.
