First let me start by saying that I've never actually stayed at Golden Sands Hotel, therefore I'm simply here to review the Ixora Bar & Restaurant and not the actual hotel. If you like rum, souse, karoke then the Ixora Bar maybe the place to be on Saturdays. Let me add here that the restaurant also serves other dishes including...

Large room with well outfitted kitchenette. Porch with view of the magical blue ocean just across the street. Beach perfect for a early morning or a sunset swim before or after a day out exploring Barbados. Nice pool, too. Very clean, well-kept rooms, building and grounds. Wifi not always strong or fast. No hot water one morning. Self-controlled air conditioning....

We had a spacious suite for a reasonable price in a location where it was easy to access Bridgetown via buses, Oistins (and the wonderful Friday Night Fish Fry) was a short walk and a beautiful beach across the road. The restaurant attached to the hotel had great local dishes, very tasty grilled fish with a quick room service, a...

A local friend decided to take my colleague (who was on her first visit to Barbados) and me (someone who has been here at least 25 times in the past 25+ years) to the Saturday Lime at Ixora for some fresh fish. It was crowded--as expected. But the service was horrible. First they seated our party of three behind the...

I didn't stay at the hotel itself; I was attending a wedding reception. The staff were on their toes at all times and very pleasant. Bartenders knew exactly what they were doing preparing drinks, and even tailored some to the guests' needs. I was so pleased that I'll definitely consider staying at the hotel the next time I visit Barbados!

When we arrived at Golden Sands late evening there was no record of our booking. Not a problem. We were given a room and told to sort it out in the morning. Where else would do that? The room was large, clean and tidy with a huge bed. It's not 5 star, but you're not paying 5 star prices! Staff...
