We have just returned from the Coral Reef during these Covid times so thought a bit of info may be helpful for other guests:
- Barbados is a great place to go to at the moment. There is no community transmission of Covid on the island, just a few cases of tourists being positive. However they are firm about masks, sanitising hands and temperature taking in Restaurants, bars, taxis etc which is all fair enough
- hotel organised our second test in our hotel room and we had the results in 24 hours. There are a few designated areas in the hotel that you can use in the first 48 hours, including a pool area, garden area and section of the restaurant, which worked just fine
- with regards to the Hotel itself it is a very attractive, colonial style hotel, in the most fab location on the beach. The coral reef is largely dead but has great snorkelling with lots of fish just by the hotel. The beach boys and water sports is very well run and service excellent
- there were a number of things not on as the hotel was so empty - BBQ/buffet - but on the plus side we got into every restaurant we wanted to go to no problem. There was some evening entertainment, but I think atmosphere is tricky when the UK is in lockdown and there are so few guests
- we thought the service was fine in the restaurant, and the quality of the food was excellent. I think face masks don’t help the staff as it is difficult to communicate at times, and you don’t get that lovely Caribbean smile

All in all we had a lovely time, very relaxing, high quality accommodation and grounds, and just grateful to be on holiday

The entire property, both buildings and grounds, is very attractive, immaculately maintained by an army of staff and spotlessly clean. Housekeeping is first rate and our large balcony was as clean as our room. The quality, sophistication and choice of food in the dining room in the evening and at lunch, cannot be faulted.

Some of the staff were efficient, professional and charming; many were surly, lazy and completely lacked initiative. This was particularly the case in the restaurant. Other guests made the same observations to us.

The hotel is situated right on the beach with its soft sand and warm, turquoise water. It looks idyllic. Beware, within a few feet, the sea bed is covered with rocks, which ruins the experience.

The web site still says there is live entertainment five nights a week in the summer and every evening in the winter. We were there in October. There was a singer one night, a man playing his steel drum on another and a pianist on another. You won’t be enjoying the weekly sumptuous buffet and full choice barbecue promised each week but they are still advertised on the website. There is no floor show either. All these things, appearing on the website as they do, form part of the contract between the hotel and the guests and failure to deliver puts the hotel in breach of contract.

At the same time as we were there a group of four couples and their eight children were also staying. They went around in an inseparable pack the entire time, yelling and screaming, dominating whatever space they were occupying and treating the property as if it were their own home. This included the restaurant and terrace area, causing the staff and other guests to comment. It took several days of complaining for the management to get them to behave. Then they moved to the enclosed, rather small swimming pool area where their behaviour was intolerable and again, the staff made unsolicited adverse comments to us about the noise level. Nothing was done. All this ruined our holiday.

Under Activities on the website, parents are requested to exercise consideration for other guests if their children become noisy in the restaurant and to remove them for a short time. Not only were the children of this group allowed to behave like wild animals, but so were their parents.

We won’t return.

Room tip: Ask to stay in, or very close to, the main building.

5 star service from the team at the Spa during our girls day out. We had our massages and pedis in the stunning outdoor pavilion and topped our day off by lounging poolside. Feeling relaxed and happy. I could do it again tomorrow!

I want to firstly say, this hotel is beautiful, MOST of the staff are excellent and everything was clean etc. On one hand I loved this hotel so so much so I feel a bit sad that it was let down by a few points.

However one thing that left a bit of a bad taste in our mouths were a handful of the staff, these were the older gentleman and women who worked in the restaurant. We are a younger couple (late 20’s) and it sometimes seemed as though they thought we’d won the holiday in a competition or something (as a lot of their clients are older). Their manner could come across as a little bit rude and dismissive, constantly ask our room name (once all 3 of them within 5 minutes! Even though we’d been seated!). There was also an instance with one lady who was extremely short and rude with us and insisted on NOT taking our food order with our drinks order although we let them know were in a bit of a rush that I found bizarre and was pretty rude about it, I don’t remember her name it was something double barrelled. All in all this handful of staff sort of made us feel a bit uncomfortable!

The ladies and gent on reception were excellent and the young boys in the bar, restaurant and round the pool/beach loungers were really brilliant.

I would come again, but I do think this is something the hotel needs to work on!

Family run by the second generation of the O'Hara family. Very warm, friendly service, exceptionally tasteful decor, plenty of eye for detail, beautifully landscaped gardens. Of all the places we have visited in Barbados this is the best (20 years experience). The staff were all exceptionally friendly, and very happy (a good sign of good managers and nice people). Rooms are spacious, spread out across the property, and grouped to give maximum privacy. Food is very good, from buffet breakfast, informal lunch (will provide snacks and drinks on the beach too), to the dinners. Monday is a Bajan buffet, and Thursday a BBQ both offered great local and international dishes. Management host a cocktail party every Monday evening. Many people go back year after year, and you can understand why.
