We chose this as it is close to the airport, has restaurants and so on nearby, and is not as pricey as others when we just wanted a room for the night. Likely the least accommodation value we had in 3 weeks travelling in the Grenadines, but that is the price of Barbados. The room was basic with a fan,...

Let's start with the positives (the reasons I gave two stars instead of one): it has good location, cheap and has a communal kitchen, allowing cheaper meals. But you should be aware of the following: 1. There is one bathroom for the 11 (!) rooms, which has BOTH the shower and toilet. If someone takes long shower, everybody has to...

Loved the use of the kitchen and the provided coffee. Friendly and helpful staff, and they sell local beer on site at the best available price. Room was basic, comfortable, and affordable. Screens in the windows were great. I stayed here based on reviews of others saying it was a good place to meet other travelers, and this proved quite...

The owner is very warm and friendly. Rio is pretty affordable and quiet despite being well located in St. Lawrence gap. Close to very nice bars and restaurants for all price range, small shopping boutiques, Dover beach and the bus-stops as well. It is pretty clean, has a kitchen if you need to cook and neat as well. AC is...

A super friendly guesthouse. Literally a 2 min walk to the beach, this is a great choice for budget-style accommodation. The rooms are lovely, singles or doubles and they have a nice balcony that you can relax on. There is also a kitchen if you want to cook. The location is brilliant. A 5 min walk to all of the...

This is definitely a budget place, but you won't be disappointed - it is warm, friendly, inviting and a place you will want to go back to again and again as it becomes a home away from home. I went to this place several times and was welcomed every time, and made good friends there as people were happy to...

Great place to stay! Minutes walk to the beach, late closing shops and the Lawrence gap nightlife. The owner (Paula) really did her utmost to make sure my stay was comfortable and hassle free. The upgrade come in handy considering I arrived so late. She and her husband were very informative in helping me get things done in town.

I had a stay here a bit by accident: the Pebble House, the hotel that I had originally booked, didn't seem to be operating! Fortunately, this one had a room when I had gone there instead. Not bad, by any means, as I did appreciate the balcony and the safe in the hotel room, as well as the fresh towels...

We only stayed here one night (as the accommodation we had booked was full for our first night) but enjoyed our brief stay. The room is very basic, but had all we needed and suited us fine. As our stay was so brief we did not use the kitchen. The staff were friendly. Perfect location. Great guest house for lone...

I stayed at the Rio over Christmas and as a lone traveller it was perfect for me. I had a private single room with a shared bathroom and although the room's decor was a little dated, I was very comfortable there. The ceiling fan helped to ensure it was cool enough to sleep and the single bed was very comfortable....
