We come to st Barths every two years and this time really wanted to find a cozy place in St Jean. We really like the beaches on this part of the island and the restaurants and people too. I contacted Tom Beach in March of 2013 and other hotels in St. Jean to discuss our options for our October stay. I found this place on trip advisor where the reviews were good but I wanted to do further research because 3 weeks in any place can be either amazing or terrible. I decided to go with Tom Beach because they were so willing to accommodate us and help us with anything to ensure that we would have a wonderful holiday. We booked early and so were able to get room #8 which is one of two rooms that had a huge private waterfront balcony with a double lounge chair. We also booked the "Easy St. Barths" package which was worth its weight in gold as it included breakfast, a car and they met us in St Martins airport got our luggage and transported it onto the next flight so we could ease through customs and onto the small aircraft. The room was every bit as beautiful as the photo on the website and this quaint little beach hotel is absolutely perfect. Every morning we were greeted in the restaurant by a lovely french waitress asking us which type of freshly squeezed juice we would prefer with our breakfast (orange, grapefruit,beet,cucumber) and how many minutes we wanted our eggs cooked for. The hotel has so much going on from wine tastings, I love Fridays parties, Saturday bikini brunches with really good music. You can walk to st jean down the beach or the supermarket at the airport - everything is so close - The beach staff are so conscientious always running to your chair to straighten your towel or bring you a hug bucket of Ice and Evian. Every morning we went into Gustavia for our walk and coffee and when we returned our room was made up fresh and clean. Every evening by 7 our bed turned down ice refreshed water topped up and garage emptied fresh towels in our bathroom. We were thanked by every single staff member for staying with them for so long. The Service is 10/10 here. Every time we met a local person during our stay on the island they raved about how much they loved Tom Beach, it's owners and the staff. We have travelled extensively around the world and always look for places to stay that where the people are real down to earth and The one thing that I loved most about this hotel is that I felt that we got 5 star treatment but that this was a place that we could feel comfortable and at home - This is the place to be on the island - Tom Beach Hotel is truly the diamond of St Barths.
