Tropical Hotel St Barth
Ranked #5 of 8 Hotels in St. Jean
Reviewed 9 February 2014

What a pleasure it is to a fine reasonable hotel after the overpriced English speaking Carribean. No fear of crime whatsoever as well. All rooms open onto a interior garden, beautifully maintained with lovely shrubs and trees. The Salon is fantastic for drinks or computer use during the day and evening. Room A/C is fine once the room is closed up. The staff is utterly superb. Up a small hill from the beach, but what a beach, St Jean is. Walking distant to groceries and even airport if you wish. Nearby are also the island athletic facilities, surely the best in the region. Superb.

Stayed a week at this small and very well located hotel. The rooms are comfortable and clean and a very affordable price for the island.
Extremely friendly and helpful staff. Always a smile and a nice word. The garden is beautiful and everything is cosy.
The only minus would be the bread for breakast but not an important detail.
Overall I would not hesitate to return. Or even go to say hello the the great staff.

My husband and I stayed at the Tropical last year and it was a fantastic find. Excellent location right behind the Eden Rock (you MUST go there for dinner - so good and romantic)! The garden in the middle of the rooms is really beautiful and peaceful - we absolutely loved everything about our room and the lovely people. Breakfast was great as well. Really in the middle of everything, St Jean is the best area to stay in as it's a bit livelier - and of course the whole island is a 10 minute drive. There's a grocery store up the road to get baguettes and cheese for beach picnics.

This was the cheapest hotel we could find when visiting St. Barth's. The staff were amazing to deal with -- rented us a car and got us a drop off service when we leave for no charge.

The hotel is up a steep but short hill, so bring walking shoes if you don't rent a car. It's a fabulous view though. It was a 5-10 min walk to the St. Jean beach, arguably the best on the island (and you get to watch the planes take off which is pretty neat). Also, the hotel is in town, so restaurants and shops are just minutes down the road.

The hotel room itself was very small and "okay" clean. The grounds were amazing and every morning we got to watch little turtles come out and wander around and eat. So watch your step on the way to the continential breakfast -- which is good; simple and delish.

The pool is convenient if you don't want to walk down to the beach, but I would recommend taking the trek.

Overall, a great place to stay for the money. Save it on a hotel, stay here, and go experience the culture instead!

my stay here was great. the hotel has fantastic location only 2 minutes walk to the beach, right behind Eden Rock hotel and Nikki Beach. The grounds are wonderful and well kept. The staff were very friendly and helpful. Especially the lady at the reception and also the gentleman who also helped him and worked behind the bar as well at nights. The rooms were great, well decorated and lovely terrace area. The price was quite reasonable I would return here and recommend!

Room Tip: My friends paid extra to stay at sea view rooms however there was almost no view..tiny bit of the se...

After more than 10 years I got the opportunity to return to St Barths. I was truly amazed about the changes in Gustavia and the island in a whole. I traveled with some friends and we booked the Tropical Hotel in St Jean as we got a good price. The hotel is very small but the grounds are beautiful. It's a real charming place. There is no restaurant at the hotel but a continental breakfast is included in the price and you can purchase extra items from the menu. The rooms are on the small side, they are good for a couple on a romantic getaway. There is a small refrigerator in the room and that is very convenient for drinks. The small television only has 9 or 10 channels. As others have mentionned, the hotel is on a steep hill and there is construction going on next door. We were out all day so did not witness the noise level during the day. When we got back around 5 pm it was always quiet. The hotel is located a few steps from a small shopping center with a few restaurants but I would recommend renting a car and exploring the entire island. St Barths is a very expensive island so be prepared to spend a lot of money on food (lunch/dinner). Gustavia is very busy at night and the restaurants are often times full. All in all we had a good time and would certainly return to St Barths and the Tropical Hotel in the near future.

We stayed here one night before staying at Guanahani for 3 nights. After a very rough ferrry ride from St Maarten We slept very well here. The bed was extremely comfortable and the breakfast was really good. The room itself was small, quiet, clean and basic. One thing to note is that there is construction going on at 2 neighboring properties which is very loud in the Morning and Afternoon. The view is also now limited due to the Villa being built next door. The hotel was good for an evening but dont expect luxury.

Room Tip: Away from the construction

The decor has simple, clean lines, very natural, and showcasing such materials as wood, cotton, and linen. The design is both simple and sophisticated-a successful reflection of the image of Saint Barth. When it comes to service, the priority is on excellent and personalized service to meet all of the clients' needs. The Restaurant BOHEMIA, located in the heart of the tropical garden of the hotel and is the ambassador of the French “Art de Vivre” in Saint Barth!

An authentic experience, both culinary and multi-sensory, in a chic atmosphere in the heart of the tropical garden of the hotel.
