Because it’s located right on popular St. Jean Beach, it could be easy to overlook the innate charms of Toms Beach Hotel. A large pool often sits empty, as guests gravitate to the turquoise waters, white sand and variety of watersports available at the hotel’s doorstep.
La Plage, the hotel restaurant, is set right on the beach, so you can dine with your feet in the sand. It’s also a fun place to hang out, especially on theme party nights when a live band or DJ is on hand. The vibe is young and spirited, with a casual elegance.
The small boutique hotel offers 10 rooms, some with enclosed garden patios or terraces, set in a tropical garden. Two additional rooms, each with a private sundeck, look out on the bay. Simple, yet elegant rooms are decorated with natural materials and come equipped with ceiling fans, flat-screen TV’s, DVD players and a mini-bar.

Excellent service, not just the most beautiful room view, but the easiest beach front access we've ever had at any island. The sand is almost at your door! beautiful staff and conveniently located for beach walks or street walks. Can't wait to go back next year!
We celebrated our 30th anniversary at Pearl beach this weekend. The staff could not have been nicer, allowing us both early check in and later check out due to our flight schedule. Our room was a garden view right outside of the beautiful pool and steps from the restaurant. The room itself was lovely. Spacious, a 4 poster bed and large bathroom with a hot and strong shower. Twice daily housekeeping service was a nice touch as were the cookies delivered with the turn down service.
The pool, with the color changing fiber optic lights was enjoyed both during the day and early evening.
Breakfast was included so we enjoyed croissants as well as eggs each morning. We had both lunch and dinner while staying and the quality of the food, the service and the wine were all in line with a nice place in the middle of the beach.
We definitely recommend Pearl Beach and plan to return next year.
