I stayed at the Tropical Hotel back in late August during the low season and found the hotel on the St. Barts website. I read the one review "stayaway" on TRIPADVISOR and decided to email the TROPICAL HOTEL. They responded and it was sincere enough to convince me that I should stay at the Hotel. The hotel is one of...

Le Tropical is like a quaint little villa that's been transplanted directly from France. It's the anti-hotel. Very relaxing and laid back. A short walk up the hill is Le Select, a great restaraunt. Down the hill is the beach. Great location at the absolute cheapest prices. You really need to rent a car to see St. Barts anyways, so...

We had the misfortune to be staying at the Tropical Hotel during Hurrican Lenny. The manager of the hotlel has a total disregard for our safety and comfort. We had no guidance or information about the storm and we had to scrounge for food and water throughout the hurricane. The hotel has beautiful rooms but the management is cold, unfriendly,...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
OPENING DECEMBER 3rd 2016 A bohemian-style boutique hotel, the Tropical Hotel has been renovated for the 2016/2017 season. A charming hotel, located just steps from the beach in Saint Jean, the Tropical was recently purchased by a specialized hotel group from France. In Phase I, the new owners decided to update the design in a more contemporary style. As a result, The Tropical Hotel has been transformed into a bohemian chic hotel, in the style one finds in Mykonos, Ibiza, and Saint Barth, a mix between large luxury hotels and small family-run properties. The 22 rooms were recently redesigned from head-to-toe, with new "Rock the Kasbah" furnishings by Philippe XERRI. 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. New this year is the addition of a luxury snack service open all day. The food service is by one of the hotel group's subsidiaries, MAMAN NYC, whose menus are created by Michelin-starred chef, Armand Arnal, with salads, tapas, homemade tarts, and cocktails served in a boho-chic ambiance, already popular in New York and Toronto. A wonderful addition to the hotel scene, the new Tropical Hotel is a great place to spend an unforgettable island vacation, while discovering the charms this newly renovated hotel. ... more   less
