Complimentary drinks upon arrival. If you can't take the heat, book one of the cottage rooms which have A/C. Enjoyed relaxation in the hammocks and the beach. We ate and Dina's... More

This is a great place to stay if you look for a relaxing holiday. Very small boutique hotel (only 10 rooms), but the rooms are very nice, quite spacious, we had our kitchen corner as well with big fridge. Mosquito nets provided. We stayed in the cottage. The best part is the veranda. All rooms has a huge outside balcony... More

The atmosphere is excellent, very relaxing, trees with ocean views. Nearby hotels cost more and offer less. I know because we check them out personally. Great place to bring your girlfriend and surf soupbowls. The water is a sort walk away and breakfast is free and very tasty. Also, really enjoyed the plantation balcony. Thank you for the great time.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
A chic and affordable bed & breakfast at the lush east coast. Sea-U is tucked within a lush tropical garden along the seaside slopes of the village of Bathsheba on the east coast of Barbados, the most natural side of the island. Here you can enjoy unspoiled beaches, breathtaking views and mingle with locals. Uschi Wetzels, owner and manager and fell in love with Bathsheba and its friendly people, while working on a Barbados travel guide for a German editor. With hammocks strung between coconut palms, the Atlantic Ocean waves breaking against massive limestone boulders. Sea-U is a place for those who are looking for a decidedly significant change of pace from a busy life. The main house and the cottage are built in a traditional island style out of wood with large patios. The 10 rooms and apartments are decorated with mahogany furniture, louver window treatments, rattan chairs, locally handcrafted clay lamps and batik art. Sea-U's welcoming staff provides knowledgeable information. The atmosphere is relaxed, and guests quickly become friends. Green Globe certified, close to Andromeda Botanical Gardens and world class surfing at Soup Bowl. ... more   less
