Fodor's Expert Review Emeraude Plage
Baie de St-Jean, St-Jean, n/a St. Barthélemy, 97133, St. Barthélemy Fodor's Choice
Right on the beach of Baie de St-Jean, this petite resort consists of small but immaculate bungalows and villas with modern, fully equipped outdoor kitchens on small private patios. The comfortable beach bungalows have a modern, clean, white-and-brown color scheme that has become the St. Barth "look" and include flat-screen TVs, iPod docks, and nice bathrooms that add to the comfort. Several units can connect for families. The beachfront two-bedroom villas, one of which has a private Jacuzzi on the deck, are something of a bargain, especially off-season. A beach pavilion serves light fare at breakfast and lunch, and cocktails until 7 pm. The complex is convenient to nearby restaurants and shops.
