“Le Tom Beach-St. Barths <3 <3 <3”
Reviewed April 29, 2014

I just stayed at Le Tom Beach for a wedding and it was absolutely perfect!! The staff was amazing, the location was perfect, the pet iguanas on the premises were awesome...there really wasn't one thing wrong with this place. I can't stress it enough how superb the staff was. Reuben was my guy and he was extremely accommodating at anything and everything be it directions, local recommendations for restaurants and bars or beaches. Speaking of beaches, I think this side of the island where Tom Beach is located is one of the prettier beaches on the island. Don't get me wrong every single beach in St. Barth's is straight out of a fairytale but the service and all the nice staff were just the icing on the wedding cake. I could write 1,000 more words on how wonderful Le Tom Beach Hotel is but I'll let the next visitors find that out for themselves. Thank you Tom Beach!! :)

My fiance and I stayed here for 4 days, and had the best time! would highly highly recommend the Tom Beach hotel if you are looking for a great scene, good food, friendly staff and a central location. Our room was beautiful and because the hotel is so small, we felt very well taken care of. The staff is super super nice and arranged everything for us, plus with the hotel immediately next to the airport, you are guaranteed entertainment all day as you lounge by the beach! Highly recommend it.

We were a party of 8 without a reservation and they provided us with a lovely table next to the beach front. The have a house Rose wine in magnums a great start to the meal. The food was good and the location on the beach is really nice, however the service was painfully slow and afterwards if you want to lay on a beach bed they will charge you so not all good news. Couple of other highlights are the massage girl on the edge of the venue and the planes sometimes come in over the sea which to say the least is very visual ( some would say scary) Worth a trip just do not be in a hurry by then again why would you want to leave a perfect beach location with pretty staff.

My husband and I (both professionals in our 30s in NYC) stayed at the Tom Beach hotel last weekend, and we already booked a return trip. You could not ask for a better location or a more perfect beach. La Plage is wonderful for lunch and dinner, and the beach bar has a great vibe all day long. I would definitely recommend La Plage for lunch on Saturday afternoon – great music, dancing, drinks (with a bikini fashion show and surprise guests). Also, the Friday night beach party at La Plage is a must. The food was excellent – particularly the dover sole, lobster spring rolls and crispy (giant) shrimp. We even saw a boat arrive that afternoon with buckets full of fresh (massive) lobsters!

The Tom Beach concierge arranged for all of our dinner reservations and recommended which nights were best at each spot (Friday night party at Le Plage, Saturday night at Le Ti, etc.). They also arranged for our car rental – a cute convertible smart car which was fun to drive around the island and into town. We loved the laid back island vibe of the hotel and the fact that we could mingle with locals while sipping a BBC or Carib with sand under our feet. Alex who works at the beach bar and on the beach during the day was wonderful – he really made our stay memorable - as was the whole staff. We felt right at home.

I can’t say enough about the ideal location of Tom Beach, which is very important to us when we travel. We always like to be in the center of things. It is a minute from the airport and a few minutes into town. We drove into Gustavia for sunset drinks at Do Brazil, for a dinner with a view at Bonita and for some amazing shopping. St. John beach was always lively and the water was spectacular. We are looking forward to our return trip!

Room Tip: The two beachfront rooms are awesome if available - big private terrace looking right over the spect...

We spent the day here, rented a chair and umbrella and had a great lunch. We did not stay in the hotel.
It was very expensive (20 Euros each for the chairs) but you don't come to St. Barth's for bargains and what we paid was worth it for the quality, ambience and excellent service.

The food was absolutely outstanding in very smart surroundings on the edge of the beach.

A great find and highly recommended.

The service for this boutique hotel is 5 star upon arrival to departure! The staff is accomodating and it is ALWAYS with a sincere smile!! They made us feel happy to be there! It is Casual Very Chic. I felt like I was in Europe, and not at an uppity boring hotel full of Americans. Right on the beach. Would not recommend for children. We visited other hotels on the Island and every time we said to each other, " I'm so hapy we are at Tom Beach"!! We went for my birthday and their Friday night Full Moon/White Party at La Plage restaurant made it even more special!!! There are only 12 rooms and they are very spacious. The linens are all high quality - FRETTE - the towels, sheets and amazing comforter!! The bed was perfect. The food at the restaurant was fantastic! They assisted us with everything, with smles and without waiting: Taxis, reservations, boutique informations, luggage, car rental, sailoat charter, etc.. Our stay could not have been better!! Not one complant about anything.

Room Tip: Room 12 is secluded located above the reception and on the street so you will hear some morning cars...

My wife and I recently stayed 5 nights at Tom Beach. I highly recommend if you are looking for a boutique on the beach, with a casual but outstanding restaurant and bar. We've stayed at Le Toiny, and some private villas, but to us, there is nothing better than being directly on this great beach. We had one of the two rooms with beachfront terraces, though I think the rooms are the same throughout. The beach is great, with chairs set up and very attentive service. Most of St Barts is very laid back, as is this property, but that does not mean they slouch on service. Everyone there takes great pride in this hotel, as they should. Do not recommend for kids, but great for a romantic getaway. La Plage is one of the best places to hang out.

Room Tip: If you must see beach, take one of the two terrace rooms. If not, probably best to save the money...
