Best Affordable Caribbean Hotels

$230 Think you can’t do St. Bart’s affordably? Think again. The Hôtel Baie des Anges, on the northwestern corner of the island, has 10 airy white-on-white rooms that overlook Flamands Bay. St. Bart’s is all about the people-watching, and there’s plenty of it here: the property shares its sands with the tony Hotel St.-Barth Isle de France. Do yourself a favor and try the Creole cod fritters or the grilled spiny lobster at La Langouste, the hotel’s casual restaurant, with one of the best-priced menus on the island.
T+L Tip: Pick up snorkeling gear at Marine Service and head to secluded Gouverneur Beach, where you’ll spot angelfish, sergeant majors, sea turtles, and the occasional nurse shark.
