    First Caribbean Holiday

    Decided that Barbados would be ideal for our first visit to the Caribbean with its direct flights from London and plenty of tourist attractions as well as gorgeous beaches. We booked a deluxe bedroom suite with masses of space and a good sized balcony overlooking the central garden area and pool, with the sea beyond. It was absolute Paradise, so much so that we barely moved from the hotel!! Clean, well-fitted bathroom, large wardrobe, and comfortable sitting and eating furniture. Balcony with table and chairs as well as sun lounger. Staff were really helpful, always happy and smiling, Great breakfast kept us going all day and evening meals in the restaurants were excellent. We ate outside a couple of times in nearby Oistins and Lawrence Gap. The sandy beach with plenty of sunbeds was excellent and the beach jockey set up umbrellas by request. Towels and cold water provided. With a late flight home and the hotel full, we were very grateful for the excellent guest sitting room (in the basement but well furnished, air con etc) and the use of good showers and changing rooms in the gym next door to it meant we were super clean and refreshed for the journey home. The hotel staff booked taxis for our short journey to and from the airport. We had a super holiday and look forward to being there next year.

    Spent 10 nights here 2 adults one child 8. On arrival we received 7 free breakfast tickets for both adults which was a bonus. We found the hotel peaceful/spotless and a perfect location on the beach. One reason I only gave 4 stars was the restaurant staff very slow and rude at times (not all of them) but everywhere else in the hotel they could not do enough for you but after a few days we just got use to it. Would I return?? Most definitely a beautiful island and we loved St Laurence gap which was 5mins in a taxi. Cost of everything is expensive but we paid more in other place.

    Great hotel - service some of the worst experienced

    I would give this hotel 5 stars but I can’t get past the poor service - something that could be fixed with some basic training and friendly wait staff. The hotel and its facilities are lovely, and I would highly recommend for couples and families. You don’t really need to leave so it’s ideal for relaxing... The service though is beyond bad... housekeeping staff are unfriendly, bar and wait staff at the restaurants and pool bar are not friendly at all and you could seriously be waiting 1 hour for a simple sandwich and drink! This hotel should invest in their staff, train them up , ask them to smile a bit, people are trying to have a nice time on vacation

    Bougainvillea sets a standard in Barbados that is tough to beat. I've visited twice; once 7 years ago and once this past October - and I hope it's not as long before I return. The beaches here are some of the best on the island, and the service and friendliness of the staff is representative of what an established hotel can achieve. The rooms are large and had everything we needed. The food was delicious. The most important things to me are the beaches and the service and this hotel exceeds expectations on both.

    Just returned home with my husband from our first trip to Barbados and stay at Bougainvillea. The resort was wonderful and very beautiful. The landscape and flowers around the pool with the waterfalls were spectacular. Check in was quick and super easy the ladies were very friendly and knowledgeable. We arrived before check in time and were pleasantly surprised that our room had been upgraded to a one bedroom suite, it wasn't ready for us so we enjoyed a cocktail at the pool bar while we waited and the super friendly woman who checked us in (didn't get her name) came down to find us when our room was ready, which was great. The room was wonderful and very clean and up to date, lots of space. The beach and pools were wonderful, very relaxing, however if you are looking for a party spot (which we were not) this is not the resort for you. Lots of great drinks at the swim up pool bar and Sonia there was great and super friendly. Overall it's a great resort, the only complaint I have is the food in terms of the lack of choice and the extreme overpricing of what is available we ate exactly one dinner and one breakfast at Calabash and that was 2 to many, will not make that mistake again, the food was just ok and the price was outrageous.
