The hotel is located on one of the best beaches in Barbados and there is beach-side food and drink service for guests. We loved hanging out at the swim-up bar in the afternoons and the bartenders are very attentive and knowledgeable. The front desk staff was very helpful with coordinating taxis and tours. The hotel itself is a little run down/outdated. The lounge chairs by the pool are mildewed, the paint at the swim-up bar is chipped/peeling, and the tiles throughout are a bit dated. Also my friend Cari used the spa one day for a facial and said it was good/fair, but she had an entire second day of massage, manicure and pedicure that was cancelled on her without notice. She had asked to just re-schedule the massage for another time/day and instead all of the services were cancelled. When she tried to re-book them, she was told there was no one there to do the services. Not sure if the spa techs are just on call or what? The spa seems to be disorganized and poorly run. Also $70 US for 2 people to eat at the buffet seemed high for the quality.
Great amenities and location Staff could be friendlier
The location was perfect as a over night stay after our cruise.the front desk was on top of things, right down to making sure we had a taxi at 5:00AM to take us to he airport. Nothinh
We truly enjoyed the Accra Hotel. The location is great! We were steps away from the boardwalk. There are stores and restaurants in the immediate area. Transportation was 100 steps away. This hotel is very convenient. The housekeeping staff was very efficient. The grounds were well kept. It was truly a good experience. The beach was perfect We didn't care that much for the food and it was a little pricey.
The hotel was quite aged. The room the put me in seemed very old. The ac was not working properly and it had a view of the dirt lot next door. When I checked my reservation I realized I'd actually paid for a room with a balcony and this did not have one so I called down to the front desk, they did not seem happy about this call but when someone came back they said they had a room for me. So they put me in a smaller room on the first floor, facing the street, but it did have a working ac and a balcony. Just not what I was expecting for the rate I paid! Everything seemed old, worn down and dingy.
beautiful grounds, great beach, wonderful room the bed was terrible, way too hard. We were ready to bring our family reunion there until we slept on the the bed.
They have two resturatants. The Waters Edge is the best restaurant on the island. There other restaurant is possible the worst. You have to request a room that you like. they will try to put you in room that has no view. so just simply request better room and they will review vacancies and put you in wonderful room.This is not a complaint but just heads up.
Pleasant staff, quick and efficient service, nice beach. The restuarant had very ordinary offerings re food...water's edge is deff not as advertised...food very ordinary and appears to be made in advance but the staff very pleasant and good service.
Very relaxing, every night they have some events to entertain. Staff are all lovely and kind but not too disturbing. Also it is very clear it cares about environment which is the best thing I see in such a resort island. Bed cover (top duvet and pillow) are not washed ages and smell bad. Hope they can clean it more often.
relaxing all rooms close to the beach n staff very helpful need another restaurant that is high end
We just returned from a trip to Barbados and thoroughly enjoyed the Bougainvillea Beach Resort. This was our second year visiting the resort and we found the room, service and staff to be excellent. The resort is ideally located near St. Lawrence Gap and has beautiful grounds and views of the ocean.
Really friendly staff, good amenities and nice location
One receptionist, Katrina, was quite above average. Fast and friendly. For a three hours longer stay in the room on the day of departure I had to pay 75 US dollars. The hotel was not fully booked though!!!
Climate, resort, friednliness:) Balcony and balcony doors were not clean.
The beach was perfect - and the staff were very friendly.
The hotel is beachfront, nicely laid out, comfy, clean. It does not protect the guests from taxi overcharging - the only country I've been to (and I've been to many) where taxi fare from the airport to the hotel is cheaper than from the hotel to the airport!! Taxi overall is expensive, and there are no cheaper alternatives for families. Ocean waves were all the time too choppy to swim. Hotel could use renovation.
I liked how the staff is 100% dedicated to helping you have the greatest vacation. They even got me a rental car at the last minute! Very friendly. The view is absolutely spectactlar. The Wifi leaves something to be desired. It was only availible outside my room (I had to go to my porch) or go down to the pool.
The facility was very clean and the grounds well maintained. I was pleasantly surprised at the state of the apartment that we stayed in, my 18 year old son and myself. It was in very good condition and quite comfortable. BREAKFAST WAS GREAT!!! The entrance driveway was a bit rough and bumpy and the parking area was completely undone. It would be great if they at least paved the parking area.
Location, scenery The restaurant was closed
We stayed for 2 weeks. The hotel was much nicer than we had expected. The staff were very friendly and extremely helpful. The room was great lots of space to unpack for a 2 week stay. Lovely view and great beach. Thank you Coral Sands
The view from the balcony is to die for!! We stayed on the 3rd floor of this 4-story hotel and had a wonderful view. The location is good if you are looking for something near restaurants and bars that you can walk to, but far enough away to not hear it. Be sure to walk down the beach to Carib Bar & Grill--Great moderately priced casual beachfront restaurant. I only have 3 complaints: 1. They only had 5 beach chairs available (for a hotel with 36 or so rooms, that seemed like a very small amount). 2. All the pillows on the beds smelled like a mildewy towel. I had to smell all of them to find just one that didn't make me gag. But it was hardly something to complain about. 3. No free Internet. The rooms were immaculately clean--huge bath area with double sink and walk-in shower. The hotel staff is very friendly, like all Barbadians we encountered. We loved the full kitchen. Be sure to go the grocery store down the side street from the one on the main street. The one on the main street is...
Meh Dirty, dated, noisy, quite ugly.
It's right in the heart of all the activities, Has a great restaurant and amenities. The wifi signal was internment
The staff was absolutely fantastic. Facility was well-maintained. Directly across the street from the beach. Would book again. Excellent value.
The staff and owners were overly accommodating, even giving me a ride to a local medical clinic for a non-emergent issue. The property was just lovely, very quaint with a local flair. You received a drink of choice upon arrival and all staff (and even some locals hanging at bar/ restaurant) were very very friendly. Look forward to staying again the next time I am passing through Barbados!
Proximity to the beach is optimal, the service staff is amazing and breakfast is lovely. The ocean view studio is very cute and comes with a stove, plates and cutlery if one is interested in cooking for oneself. This was a pleasant surprise. The pool is not the biggest, and after having stayed at Accra Beach Hotel it was just basic but this is not a deal killer. The beach that the hotel occupies is not the the calmest but this is the south coast of the island and that's what you get. The walls are a bit thin and some adjoining rooms might have guests that are sticklers for quiet and your noisy child might drive them crazy :) Other than those minor things, they're really no downsides to this hotel.
This is like a home away from home. It has a kitchen so you don't have to spend money at restaurants. It had a dishwasher and washer and dryer. It is located right on the beach with plenty of shade and beach chairs. There are bars on either side and he the nightlife is great b/c it is located at the end of the gap. It can be noisy at night and even if you love the sound of the ocean, leaving the windows open can invite mosquitoes.
Overall the stay was enjoyable, but it would be more convienent if the rooms had WI-FI capabilities or internet access and you did not have to drag your laptop down to the rec room and pay the 5BB dollars per day for daily internet connection.
Condos were a little out of the way,however transportation was provided. We had a late flight and thankfully had our transporter stop us by KFC or we would have been starving. There are no close restaurants or stores. The place was lovely, but one night the weather was muggy and the mosquitos came out, there are no screens on the windows or sliding doors and no AC in the general area, only the bedroom. If you are a little adventerous and want a cozy place to spend some quality time, this is the place for you. If you need convenience and proximity to EVERYTHING, you might want to look elsewhere. Definitely should rent a car if you stay here. We did not since we were not comfortable with driving on a different side. Housekeeping came everyother day which was adequate and they did a spotless job cleaning.
For experienced travellers to Barbados, who want moderate rates without sacrificing quality, the Plum Tree is the perfect place. It is nestled in the bucolic, manicured setting of Rockley Golf Club and close to the best beaches and hotels Barbados has to offer. It is safe, clean, quiet. It is simply a treat!
My wife and I stayed here for a few days. We were aware of the construction but that really did not affect us. Upon check in the room was not ready so we had to wait with all our stuff by the pool for an hour. They gave us a bottle of champange and coffee mug as a gift for the wait.The hotel is directly across from the hottest club in Barbados and they have an open patio and you can hear the music and people until 3am when they shut down. The room is not sealed off with large gaps under the door and slotted bathroom windows all the noise come right inside. On the 2nd night we heard a loud popping noise in the middle of the night, when it was light out we noticed the tile floor had buckled -maybe 15 tiles so they had to move us to another room. re-pack everything-move and unpack. The next night the A/C stopped working but no more rooms to move us so they had to move us to another hotel. Re-pack, move, unpack again. The staff was very nice just too bad we had so many problems. Wou...
The hotel was very well located, the staff was very welcoming and helpful. The only problem is the noise from the karaoke across the street.
This was my third stay at the South Gap Hotel. If you want to be in the midst of the action, this is your kind of place. It's quiet during the day but very noisy and smoky at night - the price you pay for being directly across from the most lively clubs (and grills) in St. Lawrence Gap. The view from the rooms is the ocean. The (studio) rooms vary in size, tend to be small, but neat, with free wifi access. My favorite is the 1 bedroom, with a separate sitting room. The bar, restaurant, patio and pool are open and face the water.
I traveled alone and at all times during my stay I felt safe and secure. Check in was a breeze!! The receptionist was professional and courteous. She escorted me to my room and showed me everything I needed to know and then some. The other ladies were equally as knowledgeable and professional as well as the other support staff. I researched the hotel carefully before I booked and the reviews were about 50/50 but I still gave it a go. I am extremely happy that I did. I stayed on the ground floor a little way from reception. I saw reviews about the noise from the nightclubs next door and was a little scared but I barely heard anything and if I did it was more like a whisper. The room had the toaster, microwave, iron and ironing board etc plus tea/coffee sugar. Housekeeping was effective and efficient the room was always clean and linens changed and tidied. Bar staff was warm and friendly. The surroundings were always clean. The view from my room was breath taking!! All rooms have an oce...
I thought that because of the price I was going to be dissapointed, however, I was pleasantly suprised. This hotel is in the perfect location on the gap and all the action. I thought that I would be affected by the music from the surrounding nightclubs, however, once again I enjoyed every minute of my time there and looked foward to hearing the music and seeing all the activity at night. The view of the ocean from my room was a plus and the staff should be commended for their hospitality and efforts in keeping up the maintenance of the facilities.
Staff was good at what they did. They were helpful. Housekeeping was good. Food was good. Location was also good but too much construction in the area. However we did have a few problems with the rooms. They were too small and the bathroom in the hallway was very difficult to maneuver around. Some issues with the phone and stove. Some essential things were missing such as dish rag, paper towel. Pool looked a little dirty.
