On a lovely beach, this ocean front Caribbean family-run hotel is ideal for guests looking for a full-service property that is budget friendly. Located near the many activities and amenities that Barbados has to offer, this property is within walking distance to the famous Oistins Fish Fry and the nightlife hub of St. Lawrence Gap. Guests return year after year to enjoy the friendly and relaxed atmosphere at Butterfly Beach hotel.

Had a short stay here, but the staff were pleasant. The rooms though small were clean. Breakfast was nice but took really long to come. The bed was very comfortable. The food was average but the severs were pleasant. I would recommend this hotel to others.
At the moment more of a quarantine hotel than for tourists

We arrived, double vaccinated and ready to start our holiday. We knew we were allowed to use all the hotel facilities and this was explained at check in again. Once tests were back we emailed them to the hotel and the bands were cut off.
I am giving this review of our experience as a couple here on holiday.
I can not comment on what it is normally like.
First and foremost throughout our whole stay, we were never treated as guests. This hotel at the time we were there has people
Arriving, leaving and quarantining daily.
The whole three weeks we stayed, the same menu was on offer for all three meals.
Staff didn’t try to get to know us, be at all friendly with us or really even check if we were having a good time. We had the same three security guards, even single time we returned they asked our names and room number. Would it have been hard to remember your only two guests/
In fact if it wasn’t for Deborah in the shop I would give the hotel one star based on our stay.
Deborah helped us with a car, places to go,
A friendly face and chats etc.
As the sargassum was so bad after a few days we travelled to the West coast. We gradually spent more time away from the hotel and can honestly say all the other hotels we spent the day at were more welcoming than Butterfly beach.
We didn’t ask reception for anything during our stay, we ordered some drinks from the bar and had about three meals there.
A prime example was I found out there was a special meal for Father’s Day in the restaurant. This wasn’t advertised anywhere and we weren’t told.
One day we really fancied a meal in our room. We were told very rudely that we had to come down and get it, room service was only for quarantine guests. I did go down and as it turned out there was too much for me to carry, so immediately they offered to help bring it up!!!
Near the end of the stay about 8 more guests arrived. Things may have picked up now more people from the U.K. are going. I hope so.
I think in “normal times” this will be a good three star hotel. I wouldn’t return and thought long and hard about writing this review, but if it means guests get treated a little better in the future, then that will be good for them.
