"For the Fantasy" was why the very attractive young French Lady, Majaliene, who served breakfast at the Tropical, described her coming to St Barts. The Tropical certainly contributed to my "fantasy stay" last week. The hotel is a great value for the spacious room, beautiful gardens, and airy and immaculately kept sitting/lounge areas and bar.
Hotel is perfectly situated on the island - close to St Jean Beach and it's great shops and bistros and only 10 minutes drive to Gustavia and Saline Beach (my favorite). Most of my fellow vacationers were French folks and their young ones. The more expensive hotels seem to have the Americaines which suited me fine.
Breakfasts are great (with a view of the beach if you grab the poolside tables) especially when served by Majaliene!
Recommend the Nikki Beach Club for beachside Caribe's and an awesome scallop salad and the Wall House Restaurant in Gustavia for dinner.
Will return to the Tropical in a heartbeat.. One recommendation, be prepared for Euro/$ sticker shock while on the island.
