“Doesn't get any better than this!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 11, 2013

If you like big chain hotels with hundreds of rooms, you're going to hate Tom Beach! This is a very cool boutique hotel with a warm, friendly staff who are anxious to please! Their restaurant, La Plage, is right on the beach and has a very friendly, funny staff with great food and drinks. St. Jean beach is stunning and great to people watch.

Room Tip: Simply ask the staff to go over your options, they're happy to help!

First I'd like you to know that we've always opted for Villa's while in St. Barths.
This Thanksgiving week we chose Tom Beach Hotel.
We had along our son of 21 months and In-Laws.
I have to say we we're very pleasantly pleased with the service, hotel...and food.
The front desk staff is top notch! You need it...they're there for you and always with a smile.
They always took notice of our son and greeted each day, night or just passing by.
The restaurant, beach and bar staff all follow suit...amazing.
We had breakfast and car included in our rates...all were orchestrated and delivered perfectly.
This hotel and staff are a gem on the Island.
You can stay at other hotels...but why...it's the best beach and location....and who can beat the planes and entertainment.
We've visited just about all the hotels (or their restaurants)...there are some very nice ones...though...you can be your true self at Tom Beach.
We're already booked for our next stay!

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.

We had a wonderful lunch at La Plage Restaurant dining on fresh Mahi-Mahi and Wahoo with enticing desserts; everything had beautiful presentation. Since we had lunch there, we were able to lounge in their chaise lounges on St. Jean beach. Later enjoying espresso and people watching. Wonderful happening place to spend the day. We didn't stay at the hotel, but it looked inviting, as well.

We visited St Baths for 8 days and split our vacation between Tom Hotel and The Christopher Hotel. We arrived and were picked up at the airport for a very short ride to the hotel. The hotel does not have a shuttle but hires a taxi driver to pick you up. Once we arrived, we were greeted by a smile. Check in was a breeze and room was as expected. The room was nice, the bed was comfortable and the bathroom was very spacious. The mini fridge was located outside on a patio deck that needs some serious work. The hotel itself is small, but the grounds are really nice. The pool is ok. The whole 4 days we were there we never saw anyone in it. I think it is because once you get past the pool, you arrive at the restaurant, that opens up to the most beautiful beach in the Caribbean. White sand, turquoise waters. The beach bar is located right on the edge of the restaurant next to the lounge chars. The staff at the beach bar, Maddie in particular was what made our stay at Tom hotel top notch. The service was incredible. Staff was so friendly. Breakfast consisted of fresh fruits, fresh juices, fresh pastries and yogurt. There is no better way to start the day than sipping a cup of coffee while overlooking the most magnificent ocean. One of the things that bothered us about the hotel was the room service. In order to order room service, you have to go down to the restaurant and order your food or drinks, but once you do that they are very prompt at delivering it. We also were not pleased that after we had room service, we placed our tray outside and it sat there for 2 days attracting bugs. Their housekeeping staff was very slow at getting anything done. The hotels location is ideal. You can walk to the local grocery store, souvenir shopping, cute boutiques with wonderful clothes, and near by hotels with restaurants and bars. If you want to go into town, you can take a taxi that cost @$40 US dollars (everything is priced in Euros) or you can rent s car for @$70 US. On a side note, if you were wondering. What is tipping like in St Barths, it depends who you ask. In French culture tipping is not customary, but these guys work very hard to make the guest stay a memorable one and make just enough to live, I personally believe on tipping for good service.

This was our first trip to St. Barth's and Tom Beach Hotel was a great first experience. The staff was very accommodating, and friendly-I know some of the bad reviews commented on the staff not being friendly and I think it's crazy because they were super nice!! I would especially like to name Bohier Yoann, and Carolina at the front desk and of course darling Gaelle : ) We loved our experience there. The Hotel is located in a perfect area (St. Jean) with easy access to the airport, groceries, shopping or anything else that you would want or need. We will definitely come back again.
