    Location 8.0 /10

    Perched on the heights of the small capital, Gustavia,Carl Gustaf offers an exceptional view of the harbour and guaranteed sunshine. The aerodrome is just two minutes' drive away (1 mile).

    Accommodation 8.70 /10

    There are seven double suites of 90 m² and seven suites with double rooms of 120 m². The comfort is however impeccable: with air conditioning and ceiling fan, a spacious dressing room, a flat screen satellite television in the room and parlour, a clock radio, a compact hi-fi system, a well stocked mini bar, a DVD player, two telephone lines, a safe. The toilets and bath rooms are separate. Guests have access to bathrobes, bed room slippers, magnifying mirrors, hair dryers. They are equally offered half a bottle of champagne and a bottle of vanilla rum.

    Overview 8.20 /10

    Overlooking the Gustavia bay, the Carl Gustaf's tiered bungalows flank the hills among coconut trees and other tropical essences. The bar and restaurant, both with red roofs like the main building that serves as the reception, have a very beautiful and panoramic patio, studded with columns and furniture in white rattan. There is also a well-equipped fitness centre and a sauna. You can get to the city of Gustavia in just a few minutes via a long brick staircase. 24 hour Room Service.

    Food and drink 8.70 /10

    The restaurant is one of the best in Saint-Barth. Panoramic, greatly open on the exterior, it enjoys a view of the Gustavia bay. The environment is clean and beautiful: white furniture and floor, columns. Renowned for its food, it offers an elaborate menu that changes each month, with a light cuisine at noon. The wine cellar is impressive and one of the best on the island. It has more than 6 000 bottles among which are excellent crus ranging from 20 to 7 000 Euros.

    Beach

    The Carl Gustaf does not offer a view of the beach. The closest beach is the Grand Galet Shell Beach, "the beach of shells", so called because thousands of shells are buried in its sand. It is a delightful and serene cove without a nautical base. It is commonly believed that Yannick Noah is the owner of the "Do Brasil" bar-restaurant found there. The 5 minutes climb to it is rather precipitous.

    To know

    The Carl Gustaf is the only hotel located on the heights of Gustavia. It offers a magnificent view across the bay.
    In our general rating, we did not take the beach into account given that Carl Gustaf does not have a direct view of the beach. A vehicle is essential.
