    We’ll spend a few day on St. Martin and take a boat over to St. Bart’s. Any suggestions on hotels there? By then we will have had plenty of sun so a beach location isn’t critical but we’d still like to see the shore.
    I appreciate any suggestions you might have.

    Take a look at SBHonline.com...

    Eden Roc always fun. Ile de France now the LVMH something. Friends just returned from the Christopher/Point Milou very pleased..Sereno...
    Depends on how close to Gustavia you'd like to be.

    Must hit L'Esprit/Saline for dinner. Incredible.

    Eden rock is amazing...not cheap, but nothing is on St. Bart’s.

    Whew! Eden Roc? Thanks, but at $2,300 a night with a 3 night minimum I’ll admit it is a little out of my budget.
    Serano is a bit more realistic at $1,100. May try it.

    Gustavia is the hub of the island...tho there are restos and hotels scattered all over.
    If you're at the Christopher/ Point Milou or Sereno, which is further out, do a day shopping in G-stavia then have to drive back in to town for dinner it gets tiresome...I know, first world problems, right? You do need to do a swing around the island thru Toiny...incredible terrain, but no swimming due to currents, etc. Realistically? It's under 10 sq miles in size, so "commuting" isn't really an issue.
    Again, SBHonline.com will have recrnt info...we visited for 20+ years, but haven't been since '15 or so so I'm not really as current as I used to be.
    Also. Tamarin resto in Saline. Magical. Heard they'd reopened for dinner.

    Even with recent villa development, it's a captivating island. You'd be amazed to see how many folks are like my wife and me...once you find it, you return multiple times. Prediction: St Martin will be nothing but a transfer point in the future...you won't be back.to stay.

    Rent a Mini. Lil big for the island, but great fun.

    BTW, the ferries over to SBH can be a bumpy ride...and the landing/ airport in SBH is incredible. SBH-SXM by boat is a gentler ride.
    (They wimped out and shaved about 50ft off the top of the hill by the airport about 10 years ago...many many u-tube videos)
    Used to be WAY more fun.
    There's a guy that posts here that used to bring his Pilatus in...maybe he'll chime in.
