My partner and I stayed at Le Village for a week and we couldn't imagine staying anywhere else on the island. Steps away from the beach and a quick cab ride to dinner in Gustavia. The staff handled all of our reservations and were extremely accommodating. We can't wait to return!

If you are looking for a wonderful place where you can stay in St Barth without breaking your budget then Le Village is the absolute best out there. It may not be directly by the water but it's just couple minutes walk up the hill - this "small inconvenience" is the only difference between the Le Village and the beachfront competitors, as other than this it's as beautiful and as pristine as everything else is in St Barth - the island in my modest opinion is an Utopia... and that little Utopia comes at a very high $$$ price tag so having a great place to stay and explore the island from worked out very well for us. If I haven't lost you yet then read further for details. Location: Le Village is right in the heart of the hills of St Jean - you can walk to the beach as well as the local restaurants and boutique shops within minutes downhill (though pretty steep, and at night very dark so make sure to use your flashlight on your cell phone - I would say for folks with walking/moving issues this would be a very serious challenge) - alternatively you can always drive somewhere but the parking in the area is fairly limited, as it is anywhere on St Barth so people park on the curbs. The views of St Jean bay during breakfast or from the pool are amazing (I believe that every room on the property has a view as we had the least expensive option and the balcony still provided one). The drive from the airport is probably about 5 minutes - we actually ended up walking one day on the main street and that further made us realize how close that is - keep in mind the closest big grocery store is the Marche U literally across from the airport - do stop there before heading to the hotel to avoid going back to exactly the same spot you came from during the first day as other than the honor bar and bottle of water, and of course the complimentary breakfast, the hotel doesn't carry the food etc. Grounds/Building: there is definitely a reason why it's called a Village :) all the properties, and there is quite a few of them, belonging to the hotel surround the main area where; reception, swimming pool & gym, and main parking are located, giving you a feeling as if Le Village was its own little world :) everything is located up the "extra hill" from the one you are already take coming off the main road - there are a few rooms located closer to this first hilly road and close by is the restaurant, which due to its location provides really nice views during the breakfast. The property is very green and lush, everything that is "not in use by the guests" is pretty much sheltered with the plants. a brilliant idea. You won't be spending here too much time other than having breakfast but the swimming pool and the lounge area around it are highly recommended. During our stay barely any people utilized that area and it's a shame as it's definitely with its views a highlight of the property (it would probably keep more people there if there was a bar but unless you buy yourself some beer, wine etc. at the grocery store your only option is the honor bar right by the reception). Room: we had the standard hotel room without kitchen, which is also the least expensive option - it was perfectly comfy and provided all the usual amenities; safe, TV, mini fridge, comfy bed and a little balcony, although right in front of the street but it actually provided some partial view of the ocean and just sitting on the loungers there was quite relaxing. Although it's St Barth so don't expect that many cars but since it's steep uphill ride the cars go on the low gears and that is always the loudest, it didn't bother us too much but what we found annoying the first night is that the walls a paper thin... and of course the room next to us 3 guys got together and blasted the music... thankfully after the first night they were gone and we could sleep normally - I am pretty sure it's only these connected standard rooms that have that issue so you may want to upgrade as otherwise you can literally here someone next door sneeze through those walls :) probably the only negative but nothing that would not make me return here again and book the same type of room! Pool & Beaches: the pool has been already mentioned above but I will add here couple details; not only it's pretty big but also pretty deep - I am 6'2"/185cm and at times it almost fully covered me, which I found great as usually pools at hotels are very shallow. The views from the pool are great during the day and at night it's also a perfect area for stargazing and moon watching - we loved it! As to the beaches: we drove around the island and checked out Petit and Grand Cul De Sac beaches; Marigot Beach, Lorient, Flamands and Shell beaches - and we found nothing as nice as St Jean Beach! I really liked Shell Beach so give it a shot too but other than this you are in the best area of the island. Now, renting a chair on St Jean is a pretty pricey thing so absolutely make sure to borrow the free chairs from Le Village - you may not have the umbrella but there is some shade "towards the walls/green fences" where people seem to hide away from the sun so utilize that, or if you don't care spending about $100 for beach loungers with an umbrella then go for it at any of the beach clubs... welcome to St Barth :) Also, let me share another "tip" with you; you can either walk with the chairs, which is quite an exercise, which will lead you to the east end of St Jean Beach or you can actually drive your car to the public parking on the west end of the St Jean Beach - literally where the airport ends there is a crosswalk leading you to the west end access and that's also where the free big public parking lot is located - we walked each time and it was fine with us but I can see this being a big challenge for some, otherwise you better have a thick wallet! Food options: the complimentary breakfast with the view is an exceptional value of great quality; good coffee and pastries, yogurt, granola etc. and if that is not enough there are some other items like eggs etc. for which you can pay a few EURO and get them extra. Now this is where the only thing about St Barth I wasn't crazy and normally love about travelling... the cost of dining on the island is not for the average wallet... the food in all places we ate was good but I absolutely couldn't justify the prices even if we take into account that everything needs to be brought to the island as when you go to the market you can see that items there are normally priced. Nevertheless, if the price isn't an issue go for the Nikki Beach and the like... but if you want to eat and not kill your vacation budget check out Kiki-e Mo, Le Piment, or L'Ardoise (especially the last one became our favorite), do go to Gustavia and try some food place there too, there are a tone to choose from (check my other reviews for the ones we visited, except for Santa Fe they were all supposed to be "budget friendlier"). There is no bar at the property as I mentioned before but do take advantage of the honor bar if you like to relax in the evening and spend some time in the open air having a glass of wine or a bottle of cold Carib :) Things to do: St Barth is a fairly small island but due to it's topography it's a very interesting to drive around - the mini road trips themselves were an activity I really enjoyed, especially the circle going east through Petit Saline-Toiny-Grand Cul De Sac-Lorient-St Jean. Another drive I enjoyed was to Colombier beach. If driving the car isn't your thing then St Barth doesn't have that much other than beaches and dining to offer - we did stop at Fort Karl which is widely known here on TripAdvisor but the other spot I would very highly recommend is the Gustavia Lighthouse - I created a profile here for it on TA, it provides the best views of all the island around and Gustavia! Other things we enjoyed, as we always look for "made on island", were Ligne St Barth (perfumery/cosmetics) in Lorient and Les Petits Carreaux (the amazing artist Veronique who is responsible for this iconic colorful tile signs all over the island) in Gustavia. Almost every restaurant make their own version of "post meal digestive" when it comes to rum but if you like to take a bottle of locally made "poison" with you then I recommend heading to Cafe Gloriette in Gustavia's marina (their vanilla rum is outstanding!) - make sure to skip their Grand Cul de Sac location that shows on Google Maps as its officially closed for a while now. Overall: I love visiting Caribbean islands and always experiencing new ones, St Barth didn't feel Caribbean at all to us but it definitely had its own character and Le Village blended perfectly with it. Whether I would return to St Barth, I am not sure as there are so many great places to visit I haven't seen yet that at least on paper feel like they are more open to "everyone" as opposed to St Barth "attracting a particular niche segment of the society" if you know what I mean... but if I do I would absolutely stay again at Le Village and would recommend it to everyone out there!

A beautiful hotel that truly is a “village”. The rooms are comfy and well-appointed. The breakfast (included) is ample and served in a friendly communal room. Parking is fine, the pool is gorgeous, and location is key: you can easily get to anywhere on the island from this central location. I doubt yiu will be disappointed if you stay here.

We recently stayed at the hotel for a week. It was better than we could have hoped. The location was perfect and being up the hill from the main road made the view beautiful and was very quiet. We reserved the basic room and it was all we needed. The grounds were very pretty and perfectly maintained. The breakfast with the view and the company made it feel like home away from home right away. There is no suprise people return every year.

Dear Kim W, Thank you for sharing your fantastic feedback regarding your stay! We are happy to know that you had a great experience and felt like home in our hotel! It’s true that most of our guests are coming for years, and we are very thankful to them! The main advantage of being on the hill is the overlooking view of the bay of St Jean. Our Superiors rooms (in the highest part of the hotel) have a breathtaking view from the terrace as well! We are also in a quiet area, away from the lousy nights of St Barts We try to give to our guest a taste of the family atmosphere we created over the years. We want our client to feel as comfortable as they are at home and we do our best to satisfy them. We sincerely hope to have the pleasure of welcoming you again very soon. The reception team

My wife and I made our first trip to St Barth’s and stayed in a classic room for three nights. We chose Hotel Le Village because of the price and it ended up being worth every Euro. We took the ferry from St Martin and after doing the paperwork for our rental car asked for directions.  We were told it was very easy to get to and he was right. It took all of 15 minutes to make it to the hotel from the ferry port. The room was very nice, the property was just beautiful and the view was wonderful, even for the inexpensive room.  The staff were hospitable and helpful. We were able to borrow power adaptors too. I had not even though about that. It really is just a short walk down the hill to the beach and restaurants. The most impressive part of our stay was meeting all the other people who had been coming to St Barth’s and staying at Hotel Le Village for years on end….5,8,13,28 years!! According to the reviews some people have had bad experiences here, but those are just the outliers and exceptions. They have to be pretty great for people to come back year after year. My only suggestion would be a pillowtop for the bed that was made up of two twin mattresses. It certainly was not a deal breaker. We will definitely be back. If you are coming to St Barth’s on a budget I might suggest upgrading to a room/suite with a kitchen so you can shop at the market and cook yourself. Don’t skip the wonderful restaurants there, but it really does add up quickly. Bon séjour!
