    Very Friendly and Efficient Small Hotel

    We found the hotel efficient and less formal than larger hotels. The staff were helpful and friendly. We stayed in the pool view rooms on the side of the ground floor of the very long thin pool which was fun. They have there own sunbeds and were quieter than round the main pool. There were ample sunbeds in the various areas and nowhere was that crowded. The bar/dining area and open seating were on a deck by the sea which was lovely. The hotel near many shops/restaurants but you can walk to Oistins itself or take a reggae reggae bus there (takes 3 mins by bus which you hail outside and they cram you in - they are never 'full' - flat fare going up to 3.5 B Dollars from 2 B. Dollars next week I think) where there are places to eat and supermarket etc, or take a bus the other to St Lawrence Gap (7 mins) .

    Good for overnight stay

    We stayed overnight before heading to a luxury resort, and the price and accommodations were just what we needed and we recommend this hotel to anyone who needs clean, inexpensive accommodations on the beach.

    Loved it!

    Lovely hotel and lovely staff. Although we had a room overlooking the car park it was a very nice, clean and spacious. The bed was very comfy and the refurbished bathroom and kitchenette did the job. The view from the spacious balcony was OK too and we could see the occasional hummingbird and and parrot eating from a plant near the back gate! We had breakfast most mornings in the Reef Bar and it was lovely. You have to keep an eye on the birds though so they don't pinch your egg or drink your juice! All in all, as so many others have said, the staff treat you like family and the hotel has a lovely atmosphere. We'll be saving hard to go back again soon.

    Lovely Week at Butterfly

    First time to Barbados and very impressed! It’s a beautiful place with Bajan soul and the friendliest people! Pros: •Not far from the airport so easy transfers •Beautiful location on Maxwell beach •Only a 10/15min walk to Oistins, Surfers Cafe, Enterprise Miami Beach and the supermarket •Buses easy to catch outside the hotel to places like st Lawrence gap & Bridgetown - only recommend a quick stop in Bridgetown & the gap, it’s touristy and you get hassled there but you don’t tend to near the hotel •Hotel was quiet and there were always plenty of sun beds overlooking the sea •The location of the hotel felt more authentic and local than the west side which I personally prefer •we really liked Miami enterprise beach which was a 15/20 min walk past Oistins, the little beach van (mr delicious) did amazing rotis, sweet potatoes fries & bajan lemonade. This is where the locals go & not a touristy beach. •rooms were nice, clean and spacious •Roti shop next door is amazing & super convenient for lunch, we ate here 3xs •Everyone in the hotel & in Barbados in general are so friendly •Management party was really good & we loved happy hour! Free water always available •if you want to sit on the beach, access it via the side gate near the jacuzzi, grab a beach lounger by the gate and take it onto the small stretch of sand, the tide does come in so depending on what time of year you go this might not be possible but we were ok & really enjoyed this. •Tip - would recommend Calabaza catamaran trip to see turtles, sting rays & shipwrecks. We had an amazing time and we booked before we arrived. Improvements: •On arrival our room wasn’t ready and we were waiting around for about an hour which was uncomfortable after a very long journey •Booked through TUI, our board basis said self catering but in our room we only had a fridge & tea/coffee facilities and a few plates & cups so this was misleading. If I came again I’d ask for a different room, although the partial sea view was nice. •Hotel restaurant food wasn’t that great so could improve on this but drinks & service are excellent. If you go to the roti shop, surfers cafe & fish fry stalls for food instead then this really isn’t an issue. Overall a great hotel, really loved the location with a few minor things to improve. Exceeds the 3 star rating and we would return. We really enjoyed the views of the beach, happy hour and Surfers Cafe for breakfast & dinner / evening drinks. We walked around Barbados every evening & felt pretty safe. We personally preferred Oistins in the week as Friday was too busy for us. Overall we had a fantastic stay & would recommend to anyone looking to relax.

    This was our fourth stay at the butterfly. We love it here. The refurbished rooms were done very well and the changes to assist in saving our environment were welcomed. We love the restaurant for lunch, you cannot beat the view right on the ocean. Our only disappointment was because of the tides, for guest safety, the gates to the beach were frequently locked. From the beach, we had to go out on the main road to return to the hotel. Previous reviews indicated there was seaweed but not during our time there during the third week of March. All in all another great stay. We will return!
