    The hotel is exactly what it says, completely adequate, hugely friendly, great position. If you are expecting Sandy Lane or Sandals this ain’t he place, if you want a fist bump in a morning or a friendly face this is the place. The restaurant is a great location, food very good, fish and steak superb. Rooms basic but nothing offensive. I am normally bored after 2 weeks anywhere, not here I would have happily stayed. As for other reviews not sure what people want, the beach is perfect, you can put sun beds on if you want if not take 50 steps and get on a subbed, of which there are plenty. Staff make this hotel many having been there over 20 years. I cannot speak highly enough of this place to the point of within a week of coming home we re-booked.

    I really wanted to like the hotel as it's a smaller private and I am all for supporting smaller business's but ultimately I wish I had stayed with one the enterprise hoteliers. We stayed here with Tui and whilst we checked the reviews on trip advisor I am left bit puzzled as to why the hotel is recieving such good feedback. The only reason I can think of is there seemed to be a lot of retired folk or family meeting up with family in Barbados so could be convenience but for a holiday that cost an absolute fortune I would have paid a little more to upgrade the whole experience. Every thing is just adequate. The rooms are out of date but extremely clean. I was impressed that they had USB charging points on the bedside lamps though. The patio furniture is cheap and tacky. The restaurant is ok but after a week you will be extremely sick and tired of repetitive meals. The breakfasts are horrendous! There are no cereals that come without copious amounts of sugar and the fruit on offer is unforgivably stingy. Four days a week there is apple, pear, orange and banana that's it and in a country like Barbados where there is a myriad of gorgeous fruit to be had I found this insulting. A couple of days a week you will find a fruit salad that has received no care in preparation. The cooked breakfasts are very greasy and I did not realise until the last day that we could ask for an omelette. The beach is ok, we never bathed on it as there are no umbrellas so too hot. We tended to venture off and find better beaches near St James Parish. The overall location is not great again I would venture a little more north towards pebbles beach or even better ST James. The hotel staff are looking tired, they are towing the line but I can not think of one occasion where I felt that genuine welcome was given. Staff members look tired and fed up! We did get one or two members who jeered up and had a conversation with us towards the end of our stay but I fe this was to earn a 'goodbye' tip. The pool is unimpressive. The adult pool faced a screen so that you forgive the ghastly site beyond it. The evening receptionist was great though, very friendly and happy to strike up a conversation. The day time receptionists need take a few courses in hospitality though. I didn't like our experience and I truly regret booking here. Maybe it was because we were a young family - two adults, one 6 year old and a 15 year old. They were bored and there was absolutely nothing for them to do if we had a rainy day. We also paid for a superior sea view room, which we did not get. I admit I did not complain about this as my view was disappointed overall so did not see the point in approaching staff members. Positives - Cleanliness Car park Close to Oistins fish market where they serve fishcakes with more generous amounts of fish in them! If you are out all day then its a decent bed for the night The bed is very comfortable Negatives Food average not enough healthy choices for breakfast Staff are miserable and the atmosphere is horrid Not a great area Outdated Basic pool Jacuzzis, scruffy and unappealing I think its just a case of the hotel not meeting our expectations, and I respect the fact that others nay find it great.

    We stayed at this hotel for the 4th time and this is our last day :( We are in Room 518 island view but can still see the ocean from the front room and its very breathe taking. I would advise anyone to stay as all of the staff are friendly

    As I sit here looking out at the Caribbean ocean. Just having eaten the most delicious authentic Caribbean food. It is my last night of 7 staying in what I can only describe as one of the friendliest and caring hotels I’ve ever stayed in. What sets this hotel apart from any I have ever visited is that it feels like a family, the staff who work here are so welcoming. In fact I can honestly say Barbados as an island has been one of the most peaceful and serine islands I have ever been too. Over looking a beautiful and small beach, the rooms are spacious and kept beautifully clean everyday. The security are friendly and the front desk staff are always smiling and willing to do anything to make your stay here memorable. I have met one couple who have been here 26 times! And from what I’ve heard they have many return customers. I will probably choose to set sail to another island in the future. But if I ever came back I would definitely come to visit here. I would like to thank all the staff for making this holiday exceed mexpectations. Thank you Barbados and butterfly beach. Oh and one more mention Deborah in the gift shop. You are a beautiful person and I enjoyed our conversations very much.

    We were in room 325 (no lift) but stairs aren't steep so easily navigated. We had a fantastic view of the beach and Oistins in the distance. Our room had 2 single beds, table lamps with sockets to both boil a kettle and charge your mobile, a hair dryer and a safe. There is a/c and a ceiling fan in each room, the fan was enough to keep us cool during the night. Staff are very friendly and accommodating, food was good (we had half board) and portions generous. Centrally located, shops close by and mini vans stop at the hotel entrance. This is our second stay at Butterfly and it wont be the last!
