There's nothing in this price range that compares to these small but stylish and immaculate rooms. The in-town location and clubby atmosphere appeal to young visitors, and there's a small pool garden where breakfast and afternoon wine are served. Wendy and Dennis Carlton, longtime St. Barth visitors, have renovated this eight-room inn in a Euro-meets-nautical theme, reflecting the eponymous art-deco ocean liner. And it's a two-minute walk to the beach. Check the website for special weeklong Christmas rates and three-day summer getaways that are a great deal.

Normandie Hotel is fantastic, hands-down. The hotel has a warm, intimate, and welcoming ambiance. Staying here is like being invited to spend a week at the home of a good friend. Wendy and Dennis Carlton have made Normandie into an experience that gets better each day. Their staff, Camille and Jessica, are professional, friendly. and downright fantastic. Mariah, Beyonce....you can have the Guanahani and the Eden Roc...give me the Normandie all the
