Just got back from a 7 night stay that lived up to the expectations we had from reading other reviews. The accommodation was simple and clean, no frills, not big on luxury but just in the most perfect location. Directly on the beach (a lovely beach it is too), directly across the road from a supermarket and shops, petrol station...

Just back from a 10 night stay with my husband. We are regular visitors to Barbados (i.e. twice a year) as my husband's daughter and grandchildren live on the island and we always stay in St James. This was our first visit to Sunswept Beach and hopefully it won't be our last. The location of the apartments is superb with...

We stayed at the Sunswept apartments for 4 days after a 10 day all inclusive. The apartments are in a great location, right on the beach and the view from our room was amazing. The rooms are well appointed, however the air conditioning didnt work properly. We reported this on day one and eventually got moved on our last night....

If you are looking for luxury accomodation then be prepared to pay far more than this hotel. As per other reviews the position of the hotel more than made up for any furnishings that may not have been luxurious. It was spotless and cleaned daily with clean towels. Yes it could have had a new luxury bathroom, but it was...

I just come back from Barbados and I also heard the rumors about Sunswept becoming an all-inclusive... after some investigation I found out it will be under new management from mid-may next year. Renovations are planned before opening in July 2013 and very much to my relief it will not become in all-inclusive! So to all Sunswept repeaters and new-comers...

...the underwhelming entrance. The stairs (no lift) are not encouraging, and the windows and fixtures are way overdue replacement. Once in your room things start to change. Our room was spotless and it was maintained this way throughout our stay. Shabby chic might be the description for the bathroom but it all worked well enough and there was plenty of...

....we knew exactly what to expect!! We arrived on a grey wet Friday afternoon into a rather unattractive car park and a reception area badly in need of some TLC. However the receptionist could not have been more friendly and helpful and quickly checked us in. Of course you have to haul your luggage up the stairs, there is no...

stayed here in August for our honeymoon. The hotel was exactly how we expected. A little tired and in need of a slight refurb. But as the old saying goes, 'pays your money, takes your choice'. The location is absolutely great and the view from the balcony is beautiful. Loved Barbados and the hotel was just what we expected. If...

We had two weeks at the Sunswept Beach in late September and early October. We had stayed in Holetown on previous occasions, but as the hotel we used (The Inn on the Beach) has been demolished we researched a place to stay. The Sunswept Beach is everything we wanted, small, comfortable and well located. The view from the balcony is...

There isn't much I can add to the recent reviews as this place was perfect for us. I can't understand Talkshop's review. Yes if you've got tons of money by all means check out and go somewhere posher. These are apartments for normal people on normal budgets - and if you want to stay on the West Coast and don't...
