We wanted a small boutique hotel where the food wasn't all from a buffet, and the hotel met our expectations. Lovely location right by the sea and with the boardwalk, which we used every day, starting in front of the hotel. Room was fine with the balcony facing the sea the highlight, although the toiletries were a little more basic...

This was our third stay at the SOCO in 3/4 years - we always go mid-January. We are a couple in our late twenties / early thirties. We aren't ones to ever go back to the same place twice, but this place is so special. What is amazing: - Location: impossible to beat this crystal clear sea view and cost-line...

Its not a 4 star hotel, more like a good 3 stars.The room were OK in size and ambience but just OK. There was some street noise in...

Had an absolutely amazing time at the SoCo Hotel. From the second we arrived in the airport, we were greeted by our friendly taxi driver who gave us a quick tour of Barbados. The country itself is breathtaking. Upon arriving at the hotel, we were greeted with rum punch and scenic views of the crystal clear water. The decor of...

We've just spent a week here. The plus points are the location on the beach, at the end of the broad walk. Easy bus into Bridgetown and a walk to the musuems. It's nice being in a small hotel. Great if you want to meet other guests and get to know them. Negatives. The food! It is extremely repetitive after...

Absolutely enjoyed my stay at the SoCo Hotel. From our arrival to departure we were well taken care of. The staff was very personable, friendly, helpful, and professional. For my birthday, we were treated to an unforgettable breakfast. It started with a decorated table including my very own birthday card, photographer, DJ, MC, and hostess. At dinner, the staff serenaded...

A nice boutique all inclusive hotel (24 rooms) conveniently located on the south coast. The staff were relaxed and helpful in accommodating special requests, a real no hassle, relaxing experience. Possibly not worth the rack rates, so look for a special. A few areas that could be improved are the dinner menu could be changed daily (rather than every other...

This is not a 4 star hotel and DEFINITELY not worth the money. While it's not far from the Gap, that's its only benefit. It's closed to the road (and noise), with no blissful entry. Check -In was horrendous with bags everywhere and barely any place to sit. My checkin was so off hand, I had no idea that it...

Dear Guest, This review does not reflect the opinions of many guests that have stayed and enjoyed our hotel. Soco is a unique boutique experience and is not for everyone. Clients who are looking for a large hotel offering and a huge lobby area is not our typical client neither is that person whom we cater too. Our lobby is...
