“Perfect spot”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 January 2014

My wife and I spend a week here at the end of November. It was our first trip to St. Barth, though we have traveled widely in the Caribbean. We really enjoyed the island and plan to go back - and we would definitely go back to Les Ondines because our experience there was such an important contributor to our overall enjoyment of the holiday. The location is great for the views across the bay/lagoon and all the activities happening there.The hotel is small, and is like a little oasis of calm among the bustle that is going on around and in the bay. We had a ground floor room with deck and steps down to the beach. Breakfast in the morning sitting on the patio looking out on the water was perfect. We don't cook on holiday, but the kitchen was useful because we could make a sandwich or snack on cold meat and pate from the local minimart. In the evening, if you did not go out for dinner it was simple to walk a few metres along the beach and bring back a perfect pizza to go with your wine.

The (very small) staff at Les Ondines are great. Raphael met us at the airport and took us back the next morning to pick up our rental car. He was a wonderful resource for tips on where to dine, where to swim and snorkel, where to leave the car to hike into a bay and where to shop. Margarite brought in our breakfast in the morning so beautifully arranged and our room was always spotless. The hotel has some nice touches, like access to the kayaks, a shower on the beach and folding chairs that you can take with you when you go to explore other beaches in the car.

Les Ondines suited our style of holiday in the Caribbean perfectly - if you like to explore the island on your own and sample the different beaches, villages, Gustavia and dining experiences then it is perfect. If you don't want to drive and prefer a large all inclusive resort then you will need to go somewhere else.

Room Tip: You have a choice of rooms upstairs with a balcony or downstairs with a patio and deck. I don't...

My wife and I had the pleasure of staying at Hotel Les Ondines on our second visit to St Barths. As previously mentioned, Raphael is not only hospitable, but is incredibly knowledgeable about the island, restaurants, and activities on the island. We started each day with breakfast on our patio overlooking the ocean, usually followed by some kayaking in the beautiful bay, steps away from our room. The rooms are well cared for and clean and even included a dishwasher and laundry machine. The pictures on the website do not do justice to the rooms. The pool was beautiful and was enjoyed daily as it seemed as if it were our private pool. The location of Hotel is far enough away from the busy parts of the island but within very short drive to any beach / restaurant that we wanted to visit. My wife and I could not have been any happier with our stay and service that Raphael provided to us during our wonderful stay. We hope to return soon for another getaway!

Perfect experience. I'd give it 6 stars if I could. Raphael is amazing. The pick-up and drop-off to airport is great. His service was very genuine and kind. We had breakfast in the morning that a nice French girl set up on our balcony. We had a huge room overlooking the water. You are basically in the water from your balcony. Stand-up paddles and kayaks are at your disposal. This is a very small hotel that is a little gem. If you are looking for a 500 room hotel with a 2000 sq foot gym this isn't for you but it was PERFECT for my honeymoon.

My daughtr and I spent a week in this hotel but could have stayed a month.
The hotel is small and very quaint and the staff is fantastic. From picking us up to dropping us off and everything in between including taking us to get our rental car the day after our arrival.
Our bedroom was very large with a king-size bed, huge bathroom and a living area with 2 large chairs, a countertop with bar chairs and a fully furnished kitchen, including a washer machine for our laundry. A large verandah overlooking the beach, with a round table and two chaise lounges and where our breakfast was served every morning (delicious baguettes, croissants and chocolate croissants too). Kayaks, paddle boarding, snorkling,... All one has to do is step on the sand.
This is an unforgettable place and I'd go back in a heartbeat.

Room Tip: We had the one-bedroom suite but I took a look at the two-bedroom one and it is really big with a hu...

Great hotel, great location, wonderful staff, and a great location. Small boutique hotel that is a great value, on the beach and well suited for family. Several great restaurants just down the beach and great snorkeling around the cul de sac.

We stayed at Les Ondines for one week in May 2013 after reading the reviews on TripAdvisor, as this hotel has somewhat being under the radar. In short: we loved this little charming hotel as much as we loved St Barts. Great location (peaceful, quiet during the night, away from the busy more touristic areas), fantastic rooms (we stayed in a 2nd floor suite, fully equipped kitchen, washing machine, very big bathroom, impeccably clean), just the ideal getaway on this beautiful island. We already miss having croissants and fruits for breakfast at the balcony every morning! Raphael will welcome you at the airport, help you rent a car for a better price (definitely rent one to explore the island!), and upon arriving at the hotel will give you a complete review of what to do and were to go on the island, including great restaurant recommendations - we loved Les Bananiers for it's excellent food at a reasonable price by the way. In all, Les Ondines and Raphael are the perfect combination to let you enjoy this wonderful island. We are definitely going back to Les Ondines in the future!

Room Tip: Stay on the second floor for better views.

Peaceful, comfortable, very friendly staff. A gem. Raphael so wonderful. Love this place! Definitely rent a small car if you want to explore the other beaches. Great to have a kitchen and washing machine.

Room Tip: We stayed in the garden/pool view room which was perfect and private.
