Brilliant holiday at Beach Club
maureenrJ3747UD (Manchester, United Kingdom) on Feb 03, 2023
Wonderful vacation once again and really is a home from home. Big thank you to Malek and all the staff for their friendly welcome, service and willingness to assist at all times. We arrived on the 30th December ready to join in the New Year celebrations which did not disappoint ! Three weeks later we were so not ready to leave - fabulous location, food and great company of other visitors with the beauty of being able to walk to Oistins, St Lawrence Gap or Worthing or easy to use the local bus service if travelling further afield. Definitely looking forward to returning later this year - my daughter is going out soon in March (tempted to join her ! ) Thanks Barbados Beach Club !!!!
Cheap and miserable

Not much to say really other than what horrible,miserable staff put me on a downer after a few days would never return. Pool and bar area need attention was scruffy the pool had tide marks around it even the floats had scum marks on them and the sun beds were absolutely disgusting this place could be so much better. My summary of this hotel is cheap and miserable.
An amazing holiday

Firstly i have just read a review of someone who left yesterday each to their own but it is not my experience. We are leaving today ?? This hotel is brilliant. It is situated right on the beach, easy to walk along the coast. Steve the guy responsible for sunbeds and towels is lovely, very helpful with things to do and good places to go. Food was really good all the staff were amazing and work REALLY hard. Nightly entertainment was great I celebrated my birthday here it was amazing. My only suggestion is having a list of all the hotels amenities and meal times in all the rooms. There is only one list, and that is in reception. Many thanks for a wonderful holiday ??
Heaven on Earth

We have been staying at the Barbados Beach Club every Christmas for several years. Why would you go back to the same place over and over again? Because this hotel is really that great! We started going because the hotel is on the beach, and all of the rooms have balconies with an Ocean View, and best of all, it was the most economical beach front hotel that I could find on the entire Island. Then, we found out how great the food is! 4 Meals per day, including tea in the late afternoon (Don't You Know Daaaaarling), all inclusive with drinks, too. The food is eclectic- a mix of local favorites, British favorites (Barbados was a British Colony, and a high percentage of their visitors are from England & Canada), and their chefs also have lots of Asian and Nouvelle Cuisine dishes. If you've never been to Barbados before, you would love this hotel, because they have terrific Concierge services at the front desk. They will call a taxi from their list of recommended taxi drivers, and you usually have one in 10 minutes. If you want advice on things to do around the Island, they will help you. All of the staff is just so warm and friendly and so well-trained well-trained that we always feel like we've gone to Heaven. All of the beaches in Barbados are public beaches, which is nice. But the beach of this hotel is almost never used by anyone other than this hotel, because there are rock cliffs on each side of the hotel. The hotel provides lounging chairs and beach umbrellas and beach towels. Kayaks are also available free. They do have have gorgeous views from the gardens, and so it's a terrific place for a Wedding! They have special facilities for Meetings too.
Expect little and you may not be disappointed

Let's start with the good. Amazing view of the sea, and depending on room the same for sunsets and beach. And nicely positioned along one of Babados' many amazing beaches. The staff were, for the most part, polite and helpful. The bed was comfortable and all was clean. The room had the basic amenities including iron and Ironing board, kettle and a TV. Over all not a bad place.... But.... Now the bad. On our first night, after approximately 12 hrs of travelling, I got in the room to find that the Air conditioning unit not only wasn't working but the fan was spewing air from a dirty filter. Then went on a treasure hunt to find an electrical outlet to plug in run down phones etc. Found one behind the bed after pulling it out. Same for one behind the empty fridge, and one behind the dresser that had the awkwardly positioned TV. One Bedside lamp wasn't working, and no WiFi in the room. I am sorry but that is way too much wrong to greet a visitor. To give the front desk guy credit, he did come up and check for himself, but nothing was done till the following day. The wifi never got fixed for the full 7 days I was there. (Stay in the lobby for that) . I even had to buy my own extension cords at a hardware store. The food was basic all inclusive fare, and clearly catered to a not very descerning clientele. The serve your self wine, tasted like slightly flavoured vinigar. I mentioned the staff before, they were polite and tried, but but clearly need more training, but and there was one dining area lady that was a tyrant. I was part of a large group and everyone had similar experiences, lack of Towels, things in rooms not working, no remidies (my wife and I spent the last couple days with one Face towel and no bath mat in spite of asking). Our shower didn't work properly, and I didn't even bother to ask for it to be fixed. I did get a new (cracked but working) lamp and working cleaned AC the following day. In summary, not a bad deal cost wise, but very much on the lower end of what Barbados has to offer.
