Possible to go to St. Barts economically?

I've heard so many great things about St. Barts. I also know it is somewhat expensive. Is it possible to go reasonably?

Yes, it's possible to go relatively inexpensively if you know how to do it. For starters, find a room with a kitchenette and go to Match to buy groceries. I have friends with homes there, so I don't have hotel suggestions, but you can do a search on this board and find other options for doing St. Barth's affordably. I've seen them myself.

Good luck!

Off season reasons are considerably cheaper...villa rental prices between mid April and October are 30-40%less than in the winter...hotels may be the same

Yes, try the Village St. Jean Resort or Emeraude Plage. Croissants and juice are great for breakfast--scale back on alcoholic drinks etc. Try making some light meals in your room. We were in Europe and we dined in our room --had grapes, cheese, baguette of bread and some wine we purchased. Crepes/omelettes are great and you can add anything to them. You get the idea--good luck!

Bertie:

I topped another recent thread for you. It's called "St. Barth's on a Budget." You might also find some helpful info there.

Good luck.

Me again.

Bertie, you might also want to check out the thread titled "From What I've Been Reading." It has the name of a hotel under $100 that someone else recommends.

My husband and I honeymooned in St. Barths. We bought a house right before the wedding so we decided to scale down our honeymoon to St. Barth's and it is possible. We stayed at El Sereno Beach Hotel in July (much cheaper during the summer) and paid about $2000 for the package. The package included breakfast, we usually had brie and a bagette and fruit for lunch and then went out to dinner. We did a romantic "happy hour" each evening on our porch or by the pool - we were one of five couples staying at Sereno Beach Hotel, so we usually had the pool, beach to ourselves - bought wine at the grocery store across from the airport. We splurged for dinner and enjoyed some amazing food. Wimco seems to have some pretty good packages for the hotels. I would rather do St. Barth's inexpensively than splurge on a great room on another cheaper island.
