I just want to take this moment to big up Travon. He is a real honour to your hotel, he made mine and my girlfriends trip the best trip we could ask for. So friendly, so humble, so helpful. What ever we needed he provided an exceptional service. He went above and beyond. It was a pleasure getting to know Travon over the course of the 10 days that we stayed. He now has the nickname Rafael Leao! Hopefully see you again soon bro! Take care.

Where do I start? Everything about this hotel just went so well! Since my partner developed mobility issues during the pandemic, I sent a random email enquiry to see if there were (a) steps to the pool (rather than a ladder), and (b) ground floor rooms. That evening, we decided to book it anyway (through BA Holidays) as the hotel looked gorgeous. The hotel magically connected my random email enquiry with the booking and reserved us a ground floor room - if only all customer service worked liked this! When we arrived at the hotel, we were offered a free glass of rum punch (and they didn't hold back on the rum!) and we were shown to our ground floor room, which was as lovely as we had imagined. As promised the room had a small kitchen area - fridge, freezer, hob, microwave and all the necessary glassware, crockery and cutlery that you would need.
The room overlooked the pools (as I believe they all do) and had a decent sized private terrace outside - perfect for sitting out and watching the world go by. The hotel is also on the beach with quite a large number of loungers available to hotel guests.
As for food and drink - there is a swim-up bar available which can also be accessed for non-swimmers on the other side! It serves a large variety of cocktails, rum punch, beer, wine and soft drinks. Every day there is a happy hour when certain drinks are discounted.
The main restaurant located just beside the pool area serves delicious local food as well as several international options (e.g. pizza and burgers). I had the Blackend Catch-Of-The-Day, which was cooked to perfection and very tasty.
If you're staying there on a Monday evening, there is a free cocktail hour. When we were there, there was also a local artist selling some beautiful, handcrafted goods that we just had to buy!
Although we didn't go, the hotel is also within sensible walking distance of the famous Oistins Fish Fry and only a fairly short taxi ride from the airport. (Speaking of which, the hotel can arrange a "meet and greet" service from the airport to the hotel.)
All in all, this hotel is absolutely lovely, the staff are wonderful and very helpful and I would highly recommend this hotel as a place to stay if you are visiting Barbados!
