10.0 Excellent
Pros: Everything
7.5 Good
Pros: A very pretty hotel with lovely garden Excellent chambermaid Wi-Fi throughout Free afternoon tea Good pool
Cons: The lighting in the bedroom was so poor it was difficult to read. Hard to see dinner - only lit by one candle. It may look good, but not fit for purpose The breakfast could have been better. No choice of Muesli, no bananas (in the Caribbean!). All rather pedestrian. Pool staff left towels on sunbeds even when they were obviously unoccupied, and failed to clear empty glasses. The hotel did not feel welcoming as so many of the guests were repeat annual bookings, knew each other and monopolised the bar area before dinner. I know some other guests felt the same way. Lacked a basic business facility.
9.2 Excellent
Pros: Great and really friendly staff, beautiful garden, all inclusive water sports, nice restaurant
10.0 Excellent

Pros: The ocean view suite and breakfast service was delightful, Snorkling on the House reef. Will the General Manager was very visible, early morning walks to Speightstown along the beach and the whole location and ambience was wonderful.
Cons: Happy Hour for sundowners would have been nice and a simplified lunch service ie sandwiches, snacks.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: This hotel is nothing short of incredible. The facilities are great, the food is the best I’ve had but the the best thing about Cobblers are the staff. Incredibly friendly, they take the tome to stop and chat to you rather just just say hi, full of chat with local hints and tips! They could not be more accommodating and welcoming if they tried. They even noted small conversations we had about it being our wedding anniversary and left a bottle of champagne in the room with a congrats note. It is a great location in a quiet area, small hotel too so not large crowds round to pool to deal with. Right on a beautiful beach and water sports just to the side. It’s a small piece of paradise on an amazing island!
Cons: It was so good it was hard to explore the rest of the island....
10.0 Excellent

9.6 Excellent
Pros: An extremely well run hotel with exceptional facilities and staff, and one of the highlights are the beautiful well kept gardens which are fantastic.
Cons: I was under the impression that the yoga class was one of the facilities that was included in the hotel price, I had checked it in the book of instructions in my room and NO mention was made of any charge, but when I turned up I was asked to pay $45 BBD on my room bill.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: The staff were the friendliest waiters and bar staff and pool/beach attendants that I've experienced anywhere. Most of them seemed genuinely happy and wanted people to have a good time. They were smiley and attentive, and always happy to help.
Cons: We liked everything about the Coral Reef Club. This is our second time staying at the property and we find it relaxed atmosphere. The food in the restaurant is delicious such as the fish daily specials and the salads. The evening meal was as good if not better than any of the other recommended restaurants we tried in the area. The kids enjoyed the buffet in the evening. The sandpiper food was also very good - especially the curry. Lovely beach.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: The staff are so friendly and happy. There is a wonderful atmosphere in the hotel. It is like a big family. The O Haras are doing a wonderful job. It’s one of my favourite places in the world and I travel a lot.

9.2 Excellent
Pros: Room upgrade without asking and allowed check-in as soon as room was ready and to use the facilities before that.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Breakfast was excellent. Rooms were nicer than expected. The grounds are excellently maintained and full of a huge variety of beautiful flowers and plants. Service was excellent. Owners are very present and make sure everything is tip top. Non-motorize water sports are including in the price of the resort which is really nice. I highly recommend a guided hobby cat tour. Food was some of the best we had in the Caribbean. Definitely make the BBQ night if you can - Thursdays. Overall an excellent experience. We will be back.
Cons: This is not the hotel's fault but my only complaint is that local taxis seem to take advantage of tourists and charge 25 - 50% more than published rates to take you from one place to another. Also, taxi fee to return to the airport on departure was literally double the arrival fee.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Everything
Cons: Nothing
9.6 Excellent
Pros: Good choice of quality food, great staff.Well maintained beautiful gardens. Cold drinking water dispensers dotted around property. Complimentary mid morning flavoured sorbet served on beach. Good wifi in rooms. Evening music in restaurant.

9.6 Excellent
Pros: The hotel grounds were beautifully kept, the facilities were all of a very high quality, the service was exemplary and there was always lots of space for peace and tranquility if wanted! Overall, one of the nicest hotels I've ever stayed at.
Cons: hotel is very quiet which is great if that's what you want from your holiday. As most of the occupants were couples with an average age well over 50 the vibe works well!
9.2 Excellent
Pros: Plantation Suite great. Breakfast great. Location great. Restaurant food excellent but a little limited. Staff wonderful. Beach amazing. Beach service brilliant. Bar very well stocked. A little old school, but overall highly recommended.
Cons: Only issue is age of gym equipment and ancient barely functional AC in the fitness centre. Plunge pool could have done with a clean. Bar in room needed better stocking and facilities. Beer not really cold enough at the bar.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Breakfast was good!
Cons: Our room has had a toaster which was useless since there was no bread. We wish we had a coffee maker instead. (with coffee bags included, of course:).

Cons: The shower (curtain kept falling and shower head could be replaced). But it was a minor thing. Restaurant could offer more options on the menu and have all ingredients ready for the few options offered. Having said that, we both liked the food that was served to us.
9.2 Excellent

10.0 Excellent
Pros: From the moment we arrived, Sandra, Michelle and staff made us feel like family. We enjoyed every single second at Little Arches and are already planning our next trip back. The sea view room with our own private pool was heavenly, and the food at Cafe Luna was delicious. We have never met such friendly staff, I would recommend this hotel in a heartbeat! x
Cons: Nothing. We loved everything (but the rum punch welcome drink was a clear winner)
9.6 Excellent
Pros: Great staff, very helpfull. Room was very clean and stylish. The Luna restaurant is very good. Short walk to the beach and to town. Many resturants nearby.
Cons: Can not think of a single things.
9.6 Excellent
Pros: The staff at Little Arches is absolutely amazing! I have never felt more welcome at a hotel than I did here. I was celebrating a special birthday so I received a room upgrade, a small gift and they decorated my room while I was out at my birthday dinner! They couldn't be more helpful. I didn't have to lift a finger while I was there. The food at the restaurant was really fabulous too.
Cons: The only downside of Little Arches for me was that there weren't other restaurants within walking distance. However, the St. Lawrence Gap area is just a 10 minute cab ride away.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Lovely property, great location near the beach and Oisitins, fab food and the most fantastic staff. We could not have wished for a more perfect wedding and holiday!
9.2 Excellent
Pros: Great location for a tranquil stay. Just a few steps to the beautiful beach.

Waves Hotel & Spa by Elegant Hotels - Speightstown - Beach

9.1 Excellent (303 reviews)
Overview Reviews
Located in Prospect, this beachfront property is in a provincial park and within 1 mi (2 km) of Batts Rock Beach and Paradise Beach. Brighton Beach and Barbados Polo Club are also within 3 mi (5 km).
9.6 Excellent
Pros: Waves is situated in a fantastic position right on a beautiful sandy beach. All inclusive guests can use the free water taxi to get to sister hotels. At one of these drinks are free and you can book a free lunch too. The staff are amazing at Waves. They are very friendly and do everything they can to give holiday makers a fantastic time. The waiters provide a great service bringing drinks out to the beach and the pool side. They even bring out cold towels, frozen grapes and icecream to help everyone cool off a little. The service in the restaurants is great. Thanks to the lovely Jennifer and Sharon and all the others wine and water is kept topped up and other drinks provided on request. The food is good in the 2 on site restaurants, especially in the Asian restaurant, where it is beautifully presented. If you miss lunch you can get tasty salads and toasties in the cafe. Jacqueline and all the staff on the front desk are kept busy but they are always happy to help. We really enjoyed the live music in the bar every evening.We saw some very talented performers which could make lovely back ground music but really deserved to be listened to. I had a birthday at Waves but we didn't tell the staff. However, they noticed and brought cake and wine to our room. It was such a lovely touch. An unintrusive way to mark the occasion. The inclusive water sports on the beach very good.
Cons: Each morning you need to book your evening meal and sometimes choice of time is a bit limited. Personally I would have liked more choice in white wine. It was sauvignon or chardonnay. Our toilet didn't flush too well so maybe some of the bathrooms need some updating although it was a nice big shower and kept beautifully clean by the lovely Pauline and the rest of the team.
9.6 Excellent
Pros: Our room was large king on the second floor (209) with a great view of the beach and ocean. It is a small to medium size hotel With a great clear turquoise water Very calm. The food is tasty even though it’s an all Inclusive hotel The selection is limited but every dish Is great with a lot of attention. The stuff is 10+ Really.
Cons: Entertainment was to laid back most of the days. The pool is not on the ocean side. No bar at the beach or close.
10.0 Excellent

8.3 Excellent
Pros: The staff were very good and a joy to speak to, they went out of their way to help with a smile.
Cons: The restaurant was very hot with no Air Con as it is open plan. This detracted from the dining experience as you get very uncomfortable.
8.8 Excellent
Pros: Food was very good although not extensive choice, staff were excellent
Cons: Nothing
9.2 Excellent
Pros: The beach was lovely, the staff was very professional and helpful. The facilities were good and the motorised watersports were also included. We had a Bajan cooking demo run buy the chef which was great
Cons: the food was nice but it had a lot of western food options but we would have preferred more local Bajan dishes
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Best vacay ever - for the money we felt like we were at a 5 star resort. Everything was done to serve us well - one example- a typical day at the adult only pool we were spoiled by being brought without request cool wet washcloths scented with eucalyptus in the morning while we lounged around pool drinking Spicy bloody Mary’s. Then frozen grapes and watermelon canapés would arrive as a cool snack in early afternoon followed by a scoop of ice cream in late the afternoon. All without asking. We felt very spoiled.
Cons: Alcohol is on the cheaper side but wine and beer very good.
6.3 Good
Pros: Generally was clean and a nice hotel, but struggling to get to a 4* rating
Cons: 1. When we arrived were told our room was across a main road from the main hotel building, this is not in any of the hotel description. 2. The room above us was extremely noisy, every time they moved could hear the footsteps and vibrations the noise transfer is terrible. 3. The all inclusive service was very slow for drinks etc when at the beach, they probably come round 4 times per day to get you a drink. 4. When you check out from an all inclusive beach hotel at midday as a minimum there should be a shower facility offered to you past your check out time, we were told we had to be out of the room by midday and that there was no late check out, courtesy room or shower facility so we’re pretty bored until our 8pm flight as couldn’t use the beach or pool. 5. Lunch options were very poor, it was a buffet option with only 4 dishes not really what was expected.

Cons: Consistent ice water would have been great.
7.9 Good
Pros: Love the friendly hotel and restaurant staff.
Cons: Definitely need elevators as I was on the 4th floor and had to climb 48 stairs each time! Cable did not work and gave fire stick and that didn’t work either. TV kept going out and repeating the same words which was annoying . Had to give me a cell phone as room phone did not work. Could use an update to the rooms such as tiles on floors in tub, bathroom and all rooms.
8.5 Excellent
Pros: The hotel is beachfront, nicely laid out, comfy, clean.
Cons: It does not protect the guests from taxi overcharging - the only country I've been to (and I've been to many) where taxi fare from the airport to the hotel is cheaper than from the hotel to the airport!! Taxi overall is expensive, and there are no cheaper alternatives for families. Ocean waves were all the time too choppy to swim. Hotel could use renovation.

9.2 Excellent
Pros: Beautiful grounds, great facilities, everything you need is on the resort.
Cons: Power went out, we had groceries but couldnt use the stove so were forced to eat at the resort and spend money we shouldnt have. Caught in a storm, everything is closing and they didnt offer complimentary water, just a boxed meal since all the restaurants were closed. Would have appreciated a complimentary meal once they are back up and running since we had to stay since flights were cancelled and spend more money to stay on the resort.
7.0 Good
Pros: I loved the view of the ocean from my room. There were some maintenance issues that needed to be addressed. The manager, he was very accommodating and allowed us to switch rooms. Overall, I thought it was an average hotel. Really need some updates.
9.2 Excellent
Pros: Breakfast was good. More care needed to not leave food exposed (I love smoked salmon, but it was left uncovered and the flies had a field day). The beach is too rough for my grandchildren, so we frequented Carlisle Bay. Room, 5121, was great.
Cons: Better Orientation upon arrival.

8.8 Excellent
Pros: Rooms were spacious and well appointed. Cleaning staff came each day and was to notch. Private pool was a great bonus. Restaurants and amenities on site were good, including gym and store.
Cons: Location a bit remote from tourist attractions. Would have wanted more dinner options with standard meal options that would appeal to kids. For example carriage house open for dinner each night versus just lunch.
8.3 Excellent
Pros: 2 quality restaurants Beach Pool areas , especially the adult pool
Cons: Thai restaurant was expensive Fair distance to night life in St Lawrence Gap or Bridgetown.
9.2 Excellent
Pros: Very nice and spacious apartment! the cleanliness is impeccable!! We spend just one day, for who wants to stay close to the airport is an excelente option! The resort is great!
6.3 Good
Pros: The pools are nice and spacious. The buildings and gardens are beautiful and well-maintained. The view is spectacular. Our room (1-bedroom suite) includes a kitchenette, a dryer, a wash machine (it destroyed some of my clothes though), which makes it quite convenient.
Cons: For everything I asked for, e.g cotton buds, slippers, power adapter, bottled water, etc. they sent me to thier shop :( And by the way, we stayed in a "suite". The breakfast wasn't that bad (but certainly not great), but from this resort, I had expected much more. Things got broken constantly. Some got successfully fixed, some not, e.g. the a/c.

9.6 Excellent
Pros: The location, the attention to detail, the thought and effort that had gone in to creating a lovely environment. Also the friendly, welcoming staff.
Cons: Some difficulty with midges and mosquitoes because the pretty garden rooms are very near to the swimming pool. We couldn’t use the terrace room in the evening.
7.5 Good
Pros: Our peaceful verandah with swinging bed. The sea view. The peacocks. The wonderful colonial house. The very interesting breakfast. The charming and kind staff. The intro to their interesting & reliable cab driver.
Cons: It was rather off the beaten track for first time visitors to Barbados. That is probably our fault rather than theirs.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: The numerous nooks spotted throughout the property to welcome holiday reflection, and meditative like relaxation is sublime. An isolated compound with oceans of charm and none of the over imposed employee invasion is an original experience to enjoy for as long as you are staying in Barnados. Lush Quiet spaces, jungle pool and peacocks, are words that come to mind.
7.5 Good
Pros: Beautiful, green and peacocks everywhere. Staff helpful and friendly. Jessica was very hands on and went the extra mile for us.
Cons: I wish we had a better view from our room. Apart from that it was a nice room.

Pros: Staff and personal very good. set up the TV to be more friendly
Cons: the long distance from the airportgood
7.9 Good
Pros: Lovely house, carefully put together with lots of character and charm; beautiful gardens; magnificent peacocks.
Cons: No phone in room - inconvenient as I needed to make local calls. Breakfast on second day completely fell to bits - we were offered DIY instant coffee, and then fried bread with butter and marmalade - I had to point out to the waitress that it wasn’t toast. And then they got the bill wrong. BUT I loved this place and shall go back, many times.
9.2 Excellent
Pros: Room and cleanliness excellent. Bed very comfortable. Food very good and well presented. Pool and garden area very nice. Within walking distance of Carlisle beach.
Cons: Check-in was a bit slow. No readily available history of the building. Had to ask for information.

7.1 Good
Cons: Pilows could be softer Food could improve
7.1 Good
Pros: All rooms have an ocean view and are in very close proximity to the ocean. Additionally the staff are very helpful - particularly the cleaning staff.
Cons: There is no gym/exercise area. This was a big issue for all of us as we had to go offsite to another hotel. They should convert the “rarely used” small restaurant into a gym. Small double beds should be upgraded to Queen at least. Decor is very dated but that’s not really an issue.
9.6 Excellent
Pros: We really loved the location and the resort. There is an added convenience of staying in a smaller, more quaint resorts, and short-distance walking from the front desk to the studio room, and to the beach in a matter of minutes!
Cons: The breakfast menu and food quality needs improvement. I did not like baked beans as an item choice- and it was actually pork& beans. The hash browns should be prepared using fresh potatoes, instead of frozen brown & serve potatoes, and the bacon was not quality or cooked well.
6.7 Good
Pros: The coffee
Cons: Bar was barely attended
9.6 Excellent
Pros: Loved the location, the rooms were very clean and comfortable. The staff at reception and in the restaurant were extremely helpful and accommodating with great suggestions on where to eat and what to do around the island. Very quiet and peaceful perfect for a relaxing quiet refresh before travelling back to UK. The hotel even provided me late checkout as I had a late evening flight. There is also a downstairs shower and changing room so I was snake to freshen up before my flight. :-) really appreciated that!
Cons: My stay was absolutely perfect. Only thing I would say is be prepared for the mosquitoes but that’s everywhere on the island. Also the restaurant could do with some vegan options.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: The overall experience.
Cons: The elevator
9.6 Excellent
Pros: The rooms are large, great kitchen, bathroom, bed, balcony, views. We rented a car but unless you want to discover the island you won't need one. Stores, restaurants are within walking distance.
Cons: The restaurant for breakfast was ridiculously expensive. The food was Okay, we only had one breakfast.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Love the overall quietness and efficiency of staff. I asked to get prices for Harrison cave and Atlantis and it was done in timely fashion . Also it was my daughter's birthday and one of the staff members recommended The Boatyard. That was ideal. My daughter totally enjoyed this trip. I totally recommend this hotel

8.8 Excellent
Pros: Breakfast was good. Lots of choice. The place is best for location and pools/beach. The food generally was a little underwhelming except for Lone Star, which I would highly recommend.
Cons: The food.
9.6 Excellent
Pros: Beautiful hotel if you like nature. This was our second visit to that hotel and our 3rd visit to Barbados. Very attractive gardens and nice beach, ideal swimming conditions, no seaweeds during our stay in June. Plenty of beach umbrellas and comfortable sunbeds too. Very attentive pool/beach staff, especially the beach attraction team. The watersports team is also great, they were teaching us to sail and water ski. The daily breakfast buffet had very fresh food of wide variety. The daily treats served on the beach (canapes, frozen grapes, ice cream, cold face towels) were a nice surprise! We highly recommend renting a car and taking a drive around the Island.
Cons: It would be great if the hotel had its own souvenir shop (beach bags, baseball caps, thermoses, T-shirts, etc.).

Pros: Amazing beaches Great Happy Hour Great Staff Great Location
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Love the staff Rooms were clean and comfortable Grounds clean and beautiful. Beach is clean and calm Enough beach lounger to go around Love hearing the birds on the property. Love the Koi Pond

Pros: The hospitality, the pool, the beach, the food all were stellar
Cons: There wasn't anything that we didn't like
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Loved the breakfast buffet every morning. Nice selection of food.
Cons: Shower had a half door. Water sprayed out on the floor and counter. Really need a shower curtain.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: The location is very convenient with easy access to many good restaurants just a short taxi ride away. The free water sports made for a great deal of fun and welcome relief, when required from just laying around on sun beds. The staff at the hotel generally were very friendly and always helpful with the odd exception. Food at the hotel was superb as the day starts with a great breakfast!
Cons: The early start to reserve a sunbed on the beach was a pain but proved necessary if you wanted to avoid being under a tree all day! The evening entertainment was not at the level I would expect. Birds in the restaurant were a nuisance but that is what you get with an open dining room so not a major issue. Some investment is needed in the rooms, particularly the shower to maintain a 4 Star standard.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: We were attending Barbados for a wedding. Guests were spread over various hotels. The hotel was immaculate. We visited a few other hotels to see friends and we walked away very happy with what we had in comparison. the destination on the west coast meant warm water, calm water and beautiful miles and miles of sand. We swam with turtles, snorkelled. the resort is so relaxing. highly recommend
Cons: Quite far from outside resteraunts so would be cheaper if you had a hire car if you want to eat outside the hotel for a change but that is pushing me to find fault.
9.2 Excellent
Pros: Location
Cons: Ok
5.0 Okay
Pros: Beautiful and well maintained gardens. Well furnished and maintained rooms
Cons: Service poor. Staff took little notice of requests for certain foods. E.g. we asked for soya milk several times and the staff brought cows milk instead which we found out after drinking it..This led to allergic reaction, that lasted until our return to the UK. This is worrying if you have a severe nut allergy. Bed sheets don’t fit the bed so you’ll be up at night remaking the bed. No usable dressing table and mirror. Espresso machine in the room unusable as cups provided don’t fit. Requested cups to fit Espresso machine and an extension lead for hair dryer, our repeated requests were ignored. Service and attention to detail worthy of two star rating. Note, management sympathetic and make all the right noises but nothing really changes.

Pros: Great location by the beach (with the odd turtle!), access to facilities, attentiveness of staff.
8.8 Excellent
Pros: The place was excellent. However, it was hit and miss with the restaurant and bar being open, plus it is way out of town, and without a car, you cannot really shop. It is also a long way away from the airport, but all of that said, the apartment was amazing, and the beach and pool too.
Cons: Restaurant opening times. Bar opening times. You really need a car to go out, otherwise you are walking around with heavy bags in very hot weather.
9.6 Excellent
Pros: Great luxury relaxing break with good facilities - two pools / beach / bar / restaurant on site / gym / daily apartment cleaning services / close to hole town shops (via car or bus) - 30 mins drive to Bridgetown - great location to enable full relaxation with the ability to get around to north and south of the island with ease - just love this place and been there 2nd yr in a row.
Cons: Nothing - would say hire a car as easier to drive around to other towns / Bridgetown via car or can bus if you like - location is convenient and close to holetown for food shopping etc / restaurants in speigtsgtown / holetown but definitely private and relaxed - if you want to be switched off this is the place and the staff are fantastic.
6.3 Good
Pros: the apartments and the view were immaculate
Cons: - We paid part of the money on the card and part of the money in cash. Already 2 weeks we can not get a refund of the deposit 500 USD. The management says that they have not taken the deposit with us. It looks like a scam. Be sure to request billing documents. Be sure to read the document with a mark on the return of the deposit. -one night the neighbors below sang and roared until 4 am. And no one made a remark to them. This bulo is not comfortable. -for three days the workers repaired the clogging of the sink. For 3 hours every day, the workers were in the kitchen all the time, and we could not rest well on those days.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: The apartments are beautiful and whole property is well kept. There is everything you could possibly need on the compound and you need something more, the wonderful staff will arrange it for you. Felt like our own little piece of paradise.

7.1 Good
Pros: The sunset bar was closed when we were there so the only option was the yatch club which closed at 6pm. The food was good and the staff were very nice. The apartment was lovely and well equipped with everything we needed. Best to have a car to travel if travelling to other restaurants on the island.

Pros: I loved loved loved this hotel. I'm germphobic so I was so pleased the room was spotless. Facilities were impeccable. Definitely worth every penny.

Pros: The atmosphere of the hotel was great, staff very friendly and helpful. Very clean hotel. Available free parking space which was a bonus as we had a rental. The kitchenette very useful for making a quick bite to eat. All in all, defo will be returning to this Hotel.
Cons: The only downfall was the bed were very uncomfortable, that’s the only issue. But everything else was great.Just the bed, too soft. Woke up with terrible back pains.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Hands down the BEST vacation my wife & I have even taken! The grounds were pristine. The staff were extremely welcoming, helpful and made us feel right at home. Debra (gift shop/tour booking agent) is AMAZING!! Food was fabulous! We cannot day enough about Butterfly Hotel. We will be back VERY SOON! Thank you for a wonderful vacation.
Cons: Everything was fantastic!
9.6 Excellent
Pros: Very clean, spacious well equipped rooms. Plenty of different areas to sit/sunbathe. Friendly staff.
Cons: Not much in the way of restaurants and bars around it - great Roti shop next door though!
8.0 Excellent
Pros: Proximity to the beach is optimal, the service staff is amazing and breakfast is lovely. The ocean view studio is very cute and comes with a stove, plates and cutlery if one is interested in cooking for oneself. This was a pleasant surprise.
Cons: The pool is not the biggest, and after having stayed at Accra Beach Hotel it was just basic but this is not a deal killer. The beach that the hotel occupies is not the the calmest but this is the south coast of the island and that's what you get. The walls are a bit thin and some adjoining rooms might have guests that are sticklers for quiet and your noisy child might drive them crazy :) Other than those minor things, they're really no downsides to this hotel.
9.2 Excellent
Pros: Staff were very friendly and efficient.
Cons: Breakfast seemed very expensive if all you wanted a bit to eat - e.g. coffee and toast or fruit.

Overview Reviews
Located in Oistins, this beachfront property is in the entertainment district and within 1 mi (2 km) of Windward Islands and Miami Beach. Dover Beach and Worthing Beach are also within 3 mi (5 km).
3.8 Mediocre
Pros: The room is ok.
Cons: Completely poor service. Nobody cares about any of your requests. The transfer was supposed to be organized by hotel but nobody came - and no excuses at all. Main restaurant is awful. Sea view room in fact was a pool and roof view, and very little of the sea. Had to ask for making-up the room for three times. Lots of disappointment. We left this hotel 2 nights earlier, and spoke to a manager asking for refund - no reaction. We even didn't receive a final statement. The location is not really great - lots of waves and windy.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Super friendly staff. High quality. Everything was tip top. Intend to return.
Cons: Board games not readily available. Crisps, nuts, olives etc to have with the excellent all inclusive drinks would have been very well received
9.2 Excellent
Pros: We were really impressed by the hotel. The staff were all helpful and friendly, the location was great (including great white beaches), the food choice every day was very good, the cocktails were great. It was also helpful to have the different pools to relax in, with beach towels supplied.
Cons: Maybe more info online if the facilities (only a small thing).
7.9 Good
Pros: The food was exceptional and a really varied menu staff very friendly and polite always trying to help
Cons: The fact that you couldn't smoke on
9.2 Excellent
Pros: The beach is one of the best I've ever seen. The views are incredible. Great location. Food not bad at all for an all inclusive - something we loved everyday. We would come back.
Cons: All the restaurant staff were amazing but the reception staff have a lot to live up to. Very slow. I asked for towels 5 times before I got it. We booked trips but no one told us when we were departing (despite asking 3 times!) No one knew anything. I found a few of them a bit rude. That said, everyone else was a delight. Very friendly.
7.1 Good
Pros: I really enjoyed the size of the rooms and the fact that you can have 2 rooms communicating together. We were a family of 7 and it was perfect. The rooms and facilities were always clean and well maintained. There were some great events at the small bar of the hotel with great people teaching us about Barbados. Shawn from guest services was extremely great at booking us the right excursions. The location of the hotel and proximity of the beach was fantastic. We were very happy about the 'smaller' type of hotel/resort, with 3 pools and direct access to the beach. Finally we met some great people from multiple different countries and made some new friends.
Cons: It felt as though not all of the staff at the hotel is happy to be working in the service industry. When you choose a hotel you are looking for the best experience that will make you want to go back but not all of the staff felt as though this was their mission or values. From a cuisine perspective, both a la carte restaurant need better quality and better variety. Breakfast were great but dinner options were limited and not tasty. We ended eating out on multiple nights which makes a trip more expensive when you pay for all inclusive. There are some quite good restaurants on the island so hotels need to follow as well.
7.9 Good
Pros: The beach was amazing!
Cons: The restaurants and the food served was not very good. It was quite annoying having to book a table every night and not being able to eat whenever we wanted to.
9.2 Excellent
Pros: Overall, we all loved our 5 night stay here at Sea Breeze Hotel. The resort isn't super large or populated, so it has a nice intimate feel to it overall, and you quickly get to know the lovely staff and other visitors. The beach is very nice, with good chairs, and is right in front of the hotel. They served us drinks us on the beach which was a first for us. We spent most of our time their. The rooms we stayed in were recently renovated (or it was a new building), so we were very happy with their quality. Pretty much all of the food was spectacular too.
Cons: My partner and I, and another couple, were traveling together. So when booking, instead of getting 2 separate individual rooms, we saw that we could save some money by getting a shared room that had 2 separate bedrooms each having a large bed in each (and we didn't mind sharing a bathroom and living area so this made sense for us). That is how the room is listed on book.com. But when we arrived, we were not happy to see that one of the rooms had 2 single beds in it. This was a very difficult problem to resolve, because the on site management could not provide us with the room that we had booked through this site. At first they actually challenged me, and asked me to provide proof of the room that I booked. Luckily me being the paranoid person that I am - I had proof. I also even took the initiative to add a special request in the booking that we were 2 couples who each wanted a room with a single large bed because I had read other reviews where people did not get the room that they thought they booked - which didn't matter. Since we arrived at 7 pm, and nobody on site has any power to change anything, we had to wait until 8 a.m. the next morning until their central office was open to get it resolved. So for the first night my partner and I slept in two single beds quite reluctantly. It turns our after some very hard debating (I'm a very stubborn person, and I felt wronged by this, and I wasn't going to settle until they accommodated to our needs), we learned t problem is this sort of room configuration does NOT EXIST at all, which we found out the next day when the marketing manager came on site. Aka they are false advertising on book.com, so be careful what you book. I am happy to say though that eventually they did resolve our issue, and ended up giving us two separate rooms that were conjoined - which I greatly appreciate.

Pros: Accommodation was modern and brightly decorated after a recent refurbishment. Staff extremely friendly and helpful. Excellent location and beach lovely.

Boasting the ultimate location on the Platinum coast of the island, Fairmont Royal Pavilion, is setting new standards of ultra-luxury in the Carribean and beyond, retaining a sense of serene seclusion with a unique beachfront position unlike any other resorts on the island. A multi-million dollar renovation at Fairmont Royal Pavilion has dramatically changed the hotel's guest rooms and raised the bar for luxury hospitality in Barbados.
5.4 Okay
Pros: average breakfast - nothing special. We get clean room as it i expected for extremely high price and 5 star hote
Cons: beach is not nice, restaurant is poor quality. It is shame that you are so overpriced. I compare you with Coral Reef Club where we stay 2 weeks over New Year and than we moved to your hotel where we expect much higher quality as we pay it significantly more expensive that Coral Reef Club where we had breakfast and dinner (and New Year dinner) included in price. You are only hotel who charged me 100% upfront payment.

Pros: Fantastic view from room with wonderful sunsets. The room was quiet and comfortable.
Cons: The food was generally disappointing and expensive.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: You can see that this hotel does all it can to meet your every need. We will be coming back to this hotel, this hotel has no faults.
Cons: Nothing
7.5 Good
Pros: Location and beach. Room renovation. Deck off room overlooking ocean. Property maturity and grace. The staff is not intrusive. Breakfast buffet was plentiful and the fruit and made to order eggs excellent. The concierge staff nice, but we had made our dinner reservations ahead of arrival. Had we not, there would have been trouble finding reservations. Many luxury resorts email guests prior to arrival with restaurant and attractions info offering to make arrangements in advance.
Cons: For the astronomic rates, including the ground floor room location surcharge, expectations of more amenities was disappointing, such as the absence of a stocked minibar in the room or complimentary drinks in rooms and beach. Many Caribbean resorts with similarly beautiful locations offer equal privacy with better attention to detail. The room mini fridge was empty throughout our stay and a note in the room apologized for it. However, after checking out, I noticed an additional room charge on my credit card. When I emailed the hotel I was told the charge was for mini-bar consumption! Clearly a human error, but one that is unacceptable for a resort of this kind. With a few notable exceptions, the staff was flat-affected and tired looking and the breakfast buffet understaffed. That is, service could be significantly more attentive. The main restaurants cannot be confused with prime dining. Our server was an itinerant young lady who was being bounced bounced between the two and openly confessed not to be familiar with the menu. Despite these constructive criticisms, we had a good time.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: The food was all fresh, best I have ever eaten. The staff made us feel so at home. The grounds were surrounded by a tropical garden with tall palm trees. The place was impeccably clean. All restaurants and the bar were open air right beside the beach. We had a view of the beautiful Caribbean ocean the entire time. We will definitely stay there again when we return soon.
Cons: Nothing the best vacation I have ever had, and it was the first time that I travelled out of the United,States

Pros: It had a nice beach and our villa was very comfortable.
Cons: The breakfast room is very tired and needs a complete renovation.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: The staff was friendly and always smiling.
Cons: Everything was lovely
9.2 Excellent
Pros: Hotel location and renovated bedroom including balcony - direct beach view - the old and new Bajan Staff
Cons: Some of the changes being made have reduced the attraction to a number of regular guests - this includes stopping the Sunday BBQ, the new changes to the reception decore detract from the Colonial feel of the property and having breakfast in the Palm Restuarant rather than Tobaras Restauarant seems a backward step. In addition some of the furniture in the Palm Reatauarant is old and tired with rips in the leather - also the Managers Cocktail Party is not followed by the normal buffet which was well received by past guests. I feel that the new owners of the Fairmont albeit having spent millions on the room renovations (which are lovely) are reducing the appeal of a Bajan favourite by increasing room rates after December 2018 but at the same time taking away some of the Bajan feel (including the complimentary afternoon tea to 1 complimentary within 7 day stay) The Bajan staff continue to be lovely and a joy to guests old and new but the German Accor Hotels Management in situ (a German Lady) seems to be making changes for changes sake which is a backward step to many guests of long standing
10.0 Excellent
Pros: The beach is absolutely gorgeous! The rooms have great views and are very nicely decorated and spacious. The link hotel looks beautiful against its turquoise beach background and surrounded by tropical flowers. Most people that work there are friendly (not all). Swimming with turtles and complimentary afternoon tea!
Cons: The menus could be updated with local cuisine. While the food is ok, the options are a little tired.
