Bouganvillea was all that we wanted it to be. It is a really nice, small, beach resort with all the things you want for a beach vacation.
The waves crashing all night were a plus. The room was clean and comfortable with amazing views.
The food was very good.
Fabulous holiday venue

The Bourgainvillea has the friendliest, most helpful staff we have encountered in a holiday hotel. There was evidence throughout our stay of the most superb management ranging from the recruitment of the the very best staff to ensuring the most attentive service, the highest standard of cleanliness and professional but unobtrusive attention to detail. This hotel was just perfect for a relaxed and comfortable holiday and surpassed our expectations. Everything was geared towards ensuring that we had the best holiday possible. The location is right on the beach on the South coast of the island, next door but one to Sandals. The restaurant served delicious food in a near perfect setting on the edge of the beach with the warm Caribbean breeze wafting through. The reception team and concierge, Ikowa, were especially helpful and even found us a local cricket match to watch which we really enjoyed. There was music (eg singers, a two piece steel drum band) and a variety of entertainment available in the evening (eg films, watching the Super Bowl with popcorn) and Valentine's treats. We were celebrating our wedding anniversary and were thoroughly spoilt. Thank you to the whole team. We will definitely be back in the future.
Brilliant hotel, perfect for a family beach getaway

It is with reluctance I write this review because I really don’t want everyone to be let in on how amazing this hotel is and make it more difficult for us to book up again!!
We have just returned from the most wonderful week-long stay at Bougainvillea Barbados. We travelled as a party of 7 (myself, husband and 3 children aged 5 and 4 year old twins, plus my parents) staying in 2 rooms. From the moment we stepped foot into the hotel we were greeted like old friends, every member of staff at reception was so welcoming and friendly and our rooms were ready straight away which is always a bonus after a long day travelling.
There are 3 pools at the property, one with a swim up bar which is for over 16’s, another bigger pool for children and a splash pool. The children’s pool is about 4ft deep so was a little deep for my children to be in without an adult with them at the moment but is great for slightly older children and / or confident swimmers. The beach is as close as it looks in the photos so it’s a very quick, easy transition from one to the other with plenty of sun loungers, umbrellas for shade and towels available, plus a water sports centre to borrow body boards / toys / games etc from too.
The on site restaurant Calabash is fantastic, the food is exceptionally good with plenty of choice but it is the warmth and friendliness of the staff which really set it apart. There is live music every evening just outside the restaurant which adds a lovely ambience to the evening, it all stops by 9:30pm so there’s no disturbance or noise throughout the night.
The hotel rooms are self catering and there’s a supermarket near Oistins just a 15-20 minute walk away for anything you may need, there’s also a small shop on site for snacks (crisps, nuts, chocolate bars etc).
The only negative thing I have to say is that we didn’t stay longer, however we are already planning to return next year. Roll on 2025!

It was our first time visiting Barbados & already waiting for next years flights to go on sale.
This hotel is just the perfect size,with just 100 rooms,not like some big named ones,this has a very personal feel.
The food in the restaurant was superb,huge breakfast if you wanted the buffet style. But perfect if you picked from the main menu too.
Lisabeth on front of house is just the loveliest lady.
Jose on bar duty is so funny & chatty & the girls on reception are very friendly & helpful.
The staff are a credit to this hotel for sure.
Its just perfect, theres a little local bar opposite to watch any football & get some authentic food. Very cheap beer too.
We had a room with an outdoor pool on the veranda that made it even more perfect to chill in.
Hotel is right on the beach.
Great view enjoy ocean at the Pensioners pool area

Our second visit and very enjoyable. Not a place for party goers but that is why we love it.
Staff very friendly and helpful including cleaning staff ( Judith our cleaning person was excellent).
The pool is kept clean and new loungers were placed around pool, just miss the lovely cushions that made the loungers so comfortable.
Rooms are clean and showers are updated.
Walk to The Gap area, taxis always available and bus stops near by.
