Saint Barthélemy has about 30 hotels, almost all of which are small, and most of which are very expensive, even for the Caribbean. However, this island is known more for rental villas than hotels, and those can range from modest to mansions. It’s a small island mostly catering to the super-rich so it would be a poor choice for those that need to keep expenses low.

This slice of paradise is no stranger to price changes. Throughout the year, depending on the season, you’ll find prices that either increase or decease.
Mid December though mid April is known as the high season. During this time of year, the area sees a big increase in its population as many people venture south to escape the winters of the north. Due in part to this, both hotel and plane ticket costs skyrocket.
If you’re fine with visiting during another part of the year, you’ll be rewarded with lower prices as well as fewer crowds. The best time of the year is noted as being the month of May and late fall. This is when the weather is still considered great and the prices have averaged out.
The cheapest part of the year falls in the summer months and into early fall as most people have left back for home. This is also the time of the year when the rains start to fall.
