I travelled to the island to watch my son compete in a football tournament, searching for accomadation in this area is very expensive. But this hotel was most reasonable. I was very happy with my room and the hotel, it was a very comfortable stay. It was local to everything. The staff are amazing, and the gentleman who works there...

If you are looking to be pampered and served hand over foot... this is not your place. This place is clean, comfortable and at the right spot. You are in the heart of St. Jean right above Nikki Beach. There is a lot to do in walking distance. The rooms are small but adequate and nicely decorated. The bed is...

It's been three times and counting. For me the hotel Tropical is the perfect place. I could afford "better" accomodation than the hotel Tropical. However, I love that this hotel is a simple, family run hotel, with what I need and not much more. There is a nice, smallish, bedroom with a/c and a fan, a bathroom with shower, a...

I stayed here after staying at another hotel on the island which had wonderful service. This was like checking into a Motel 8 after the Ritz. The customer service is awful - not helpful, aloof. They don't have any beach chairs to bring down to the beach. The rooms are in dire need of a renovation. Common areas are small...

Let's face it, St. Bart's is and expensive place to stay. However there are options to make it a somewhat affordable holiday. The Tropical Hotel is a good choice. The inside garden is very nice, and a continental breakfast is included in the Superior rooms. The staff at reception Julie and Tanya are very nice, and accomodating so this makes...

The Tropical Hotel in St. Jean is a fairly simple hotel in St. Jean. The room was comfortable, though the A/C in the main room never seemed to reach the bathroom, with a balcony facing the ocean... as well as the hotel's parking lot. The continental breakfast in the morning was pretty basic as well: coffee, juice, croissant and couple...

This is a hidden gem. Tucked up at the top of a steep hill , the Tropical is an old style West Indian hotel. Lots of "gingerbread" decorates the other railings, while the interior is simple and fun. The rooms are clean, have mosquito netting and Aircon. The breakfast of coffee and breads is traditional ( although the coffee is...

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
