My boyfriend and I went to Barbados to visit some family for two weeks. While we were there we had an amazing time but a lot changed with lockdowns and curfews within the first week. We had to extend our stay longer than expected as we needed a negative COVID-19 test to return home to Canada. The hotel we were staying at previously told us that they were out of rooms and we had to go find a new place for the last 5 days of the trip. We luckily ran into the Soca hotel which had amazing hospitality. While we were there we had to go and get tested for COVID-19 in order to board our flights for the weekend. The test results took over four days to return and had us in a lot of anxiety as nobody was answering phone calls or responding. Luckily the agent at the front helped us as much as she could and by the grace of God, connected us with the right people who gave us our test results in time. She stayed late in order to make sure this was done, and we are beyond grateful for the way she treated us. All the staff was absolutely incredible so kind and hospitable. We wish we had stayed there the whole time and will definitely return! Thank you Chantel you are INCREDIBLE. The Hotel has its own private beach which is absolutely perfect for a quiet vacation. It makes you feel like you’re alone especially in the morning when the sun comes up. Every room has an ocean side view and all inclusive service. The staff was even kind enough to bring the food up to our room when we were tired. 11/10 would recommend to anybody!

The hotel itself is pretty nice, I'd say 3.5 stars. It doesn't have all the bells and whistles of some of the others on the island, but it's got everything you need. Nice comfortable rooms, good food, a descent pool and a nice pool bar. Unfortunately, the cost is way above the going rate for a hotel of this sort. For the money you pay at the SoCo you could get an all inclusive with beach bar and watersports etc. Which leads me onto the beach itself. It's pretty and much more secluded than most, but there's very little you can do with it as it's surrounded by sharp coral. The pictures used to advertise the hotel all show a man-made lagoon similar to the lovely one at Sugar Bay, but this one has fallen into total disrepair and the massive rocks now actually sit on the sand itself, giving you even less actual beach line to enjoy. Swimming is pretty difficult in a couple of tiny pools and watersports are totally impossible. As a result, we ended up going to other beaches to swim and enjoy the water. I really think they should show a more up-to-date vision of what it's like on their site and this listing.

We first entered the hotel through its check in entrance and received a warm welcome. We made our way to the rooms, all of which have a fantastic view of the sea and golden beaches of Barbados. The food was prepared fresh to order and the menu was changed on a regular basis. Recommend the daily fish and the Soco home made burger. The rooms were clean and staff very friendly. One thing we did, was to buy bottled water for the in room fridge from the local store, as this was not included. Overall a excellent experience, made by the staff and the location. Near to Bridgetown, with a few nice restaurants nearby, should you fancy a night off the all-inclusive package.

We stayed in room 402 on the top floor , the view from the balcony was amazing, it was like having our own private lagoon in front of us :)). We couldn't leave the hotel for the first 3 days whilst we had to take our covid test and wait for the results. Our room was cleaned daily and we were happy with everything.* The hotel and the restaurant followed the covid protocol every day of our stay , we were very pleased and happy with this. The staff made us feel welcome and part of their family , the chefs were very knowledgeable and paying to every detail are there food. There fish dishes and pasta dishes were cooked beautifully. My friend Shane behind the bar, he makes the best Rum punches ever.One night after the meal he educated me about Rum and different variety , I was obliged to try them ;) I SLEPT SO GOOD THAT NIGHT !! Every member of staff went out of their way to make us feel at home , from the restaurant manager Channel and nuasica tashauna, raheem, Margaret and angel and the chefs Darren and Deborah, deran,Aberdeen and makelia and rest of the team. Thank you Thank you Perfect location if u want to use the broad walk :)) , right on the beach *Please note , if u are sensitive to traffic noise u might struggle in this hotel ,bus stops outside the hotel and the mini Van's will use their special horns anytime of day or night !!! You can hear the road traffic as well. Ps if I have forgotten ur name and didnt mention ur name , I am sorry u were all kind and wonderful and the security guard always came over for a little chat :))

We travelled here at the height of the COVID-19 in the UK, and despite several changes with flights and dates etc we still made it here, and it was certainly worth it. We flew out on 7th December and all the staff here and management are amazing. They had a tough job to do with all the restrictions of COVID, and they all excelled themselves, and the food was 5 star quality with a great choice of meals, the service was excellent, and there was always someone there to help and advise if you needed them. Before we even arrived, Chantel had been brilliant in dealing with our queries, and the hotel manager also replied to my emails with information as to what to expect at the hotel when we arrived as we were a bit unsure what restrictions to expect. This hotel has a superb location, one of the best spots on the island, right on the beach, and in close vicinity of shops, bars, beaches and lots of the tourist attractions. The views are stunning with excellent views of the ocean, and even if you have been to other Caribbean islands as we have, this is as good as it gets. We would not hesitate in going back there to this same hotel. We can't fault it, give a go and you won't be disappointed. It has the tranquility that we wanted with all the facilities included, and they make superb cocktails!
