I was put up here by LIAT due to their delays making me miss a connection. I therefore have no idea how much it costs and therefore can't comment on the value, but I wouldn't want to stay/pay myself. It was fine for an overnight but not as a place to stay any longer. The room was massive, with two...

I went there with my mother and two of her friends for Sunday lunch. It was a good local buffet but the menu is better if you hold a function there. We had the pleasure of meeting Mikey there, so we were made up! After lunch we relaxed on the swinging seat. It was a very relaxing Sunday! Staff were...

I had a great time, It was very chilled atmosphere, great drinks and food. My only complaint is that the first round of Rum Punches had to be sent back, were definitely not up to standard.... but all around a good lime.

Staff was very nice and helpful. Took my luggage to my room but didn't show up when I was leaving and had to haul my luggage down two flights of stairs. The restauant in the back of the hotel was ok but didn't have much to offer. Must say horrible coffee out of a machine. Like I said nice clean...

Hotel is pretty basic but functional. Staff are brilliant! Smallish pool, restaurant and bar. Nearest bars and resturants are a couple of miles away at Oistins and St Lawrence Gap. Don't miss Fish Friday at Oistins!

Not a bad place if you just want somewhere to rest your head. Rooms are clean, well maintained and the staff are friendly and helpful. Only downside it's a bit out the way, but then plenty of buses as it's on the main road. Beach opposite is almost private, and nice pool. Restaurant attached is ok for a quick snack...

We have ended up at this hotel by default, as groups of stranded Liat passengers have done every night for the last three weeks prior to our being deposited here. Yes LIAT yet again have failed to get us to our destination on time. On this occasion it is a broken down plane in Trinidad which meant our flight from...

This is a fine hotel if you are staying in Barbados for less than 5 days.There's no fitness centre or laundry room. The rooms are passable, but the toilet and sink in my bathroom were constantly clogged. The staff is quite nice, however, when I went to the front desk to request a pool towel, the guy for some reason...
