I liked that it was walking distance to a lot of restaurants. It was spacious and I loved the bathroom. (I literally wanted to take it home). I also liked that the lamps had outlets in them which made it easy to charge my devices There wasn't much option of cable stations.
The lovely staff
On water, private beach, full amenities, very comfortable. Food prices were too high and they charge a service fee of 10% to every bill which is not the tip.
construction..would not have stayed if i had been informed..lots of noise at 8am....also fridge did not work...all in all a bad experience
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 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
Great amenities and location Staff could be friendlier
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 The hotel itself is a little run down/outdated.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.
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.
Upon arrival, there was no room for us. The hotel was overbooked, First time experience this, Waited until they sent us off to the Marriott Hotel which was awful. Another 2 hours waited in Marriott lobby with my 12 year old until I was checked in. That's 6.30 p.m. They put us in room where the sheets stinks and cooler above us vibrate the room whole night. I asked to be changed, Marriott said they don't have any more rooms available. Sleepless night for me & my son. The next day, went back Radisson Aquatica, had to wait until after 3.p.m. to be checked in. The staff was really nice, but nice doesn't work when they overbooked their hotel and got us so stressed out, didn't even consider this a vacation. Also my son got stuck in one of the elevators, it was really scary, they had to pull him out between the floors. Radisson promised the reimbursed 1 night stay, please contact them for my refund.
Barbados is one of the best islands in the Caribbean and the location of the Radisson couldn't be on a more beautiful beach! The staff is very kind and helpful. The price is very reasonable. Highly recommend!
My family and I stayed at the Radisson for four nights. It was a memorable experience. Hotel is very clean and the beach beautiful. Staff extremely helpful and friendly. The Bartender, Jermaine did an excellent job with the drinks and he is great eye candy (lol). Our Waiter at breakfast, Selwyn was happy to share information and directions to difference places on the Island as he kept the coffee flowing. Wonderful experience and I am glad we chose Radisson Aquatica Resort. Retel It was a little too quiet for us in the evenings. Maybe a couple of nights per week they should offer some type of entertainment or have a beach party. Enjoyed the breakfast, but a wider variety of items would be nice.
The staff was very accommodating. The location was great, they have one of the best beaches on the island in my opinion. I see this hotel becoming a five star hotel within a year once they complete the renovations. There is a nightclub in a walking distance and also a nightclub district within a short taxi ride. The food was good at the the hotel's restaurant as well. There are other close locations to eat as well. I recommend everyone try the fish, egg and cheese sandwich sold at a nice stand located next to the surfing shop.
Great access to beach. Staff were friendly and welcoming. Managers Monday evening happy hour provided a chance to meet other guests. Overall a very enjoyable stay. More choice for meals.
I recently lost my husband, and this trip was my first solo adventure. The staff at the hotel - everyone - went out of their way to make me comfortable. They called me by name from the first day! They were concerned that I was not on a walk back from the Changing of the Guard (I had gone with friends who knew the way back to the hotel). They were very helpful when my flight times were changed, and I tried to work out all the details. I will certainly recommend your hotel to friends, and I hope to visit Barbados again (and your hotel) next year! I have no complaints!!
Work and renovations all over - dust and noise Work and renovations all over - dust and noise
Friendly staff, and clean comfortable room. Only one working elevator, and diminishing towels. Every day, housekeeping would take my used towels and not replace them. By the third day, I had 2 bath towels and no hand towels. Not a big problem, just a minor inconvenience. I'm sure if I had requested them they would have brought them.
After a long day of travel, we arrived at the hotel and they didn't even have our reservation. We talked to the front desk woman for about 20 mins and finally she gave us a room. Upon checking out the next morning, the front desk guy wanted to charge us more than we had already been charged for the room on the website. I clearly explained to him that we had already pains but he said he needed to charge us. I called kayak and they talked to him and figured things out. I don't feel like I should have to be calling your website to straighten everything out. You should have sent our reservation over and we shouldn't have had a problem. Luckily my phone worked because otherwise I wouldn't have been able to call. This mistake has basically made me not want to ever use your website for anything ever again.
I was really impressed with the location. The beach was beautiful and at the time we were there we could always find a great spot to hang out. Additionally, it was close to catch a bus which was our favorite mode of transportation (we took the bus most days since it was only a dollar). The staff was great and gave great suggestions on things to do, restaurants, and directions. We had dinner in the hotel one evening and it was pretty good. I wish they had more of a selection at breakfast.
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.
relaxing all rooms close to the beach n staff very helpful need another restaurant that is high end
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.
Climate, resort, friednliness:) Balcony and balcony doors were not clean.
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.
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.
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.
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!!!
The beach was perfect - and the staff were very friendly.
Really friendly staff, good amenities and nice location
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.
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.
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...
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.
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.
You WIN staying at the MERIDIAN INN! WHERE TO STAY?? I asked myself this repeatedly while researching for my recent visit to Barbados.I knew I would need a secure place within my budget, close to the action and beaches . The previous reviews lead me towards the Meridian Inn. Although still hesitant and skeptical; I made my booking for two and headed there on 03 Jan 2012. I was met with a vision of a yellow/cream colored hotel that oozed rustic comfort much to my delight. The small lobby area, opened 8am to 5pm, was staffed with one of the most helpful and friendliest person I had ever met in my long travel history. We got armed with all the relevant tips for a fun filled stay at the island. Then we were directed to our room. Although it is not 4-5 star high end, it is equipped with more than the bare essentials for comfort, utility, and security. At a glance I could see a brand new A/C unit, a kitchenette with microwave, fridge, ring burner stove, a neat bathroom, and a king size bed. ...
They hotel was close to local markets and beach. When i first arrived, no one was on site. I had to call to locate my room and key.I don't think it was the hotel's fault, but I thought I paid for 4 nights instead it was only three nights charged to my card. I left early so it worked out.
If you operating on a budget on this beautiful Island this is the place, comfortable, a/c, cable tv and a few yards from the beach and the action of St. Lawrence Gab. A clean, convenient, secured Inn.
I very much enjoyed my stay here. The hotel does not have many amenities but its cheap price makes up for it. It is small, rooms were a good size and had a full kitchenette and balcony with table. The sheets and towels were a little worn, but everything was very clean and the cleaning ladies did a great job. The staff there was helpful and helped us set up a few excursions. The air conditioner was my only complaint, it wasn't cool and was like a second fan in the room. The area the hotel is in is great- the St. Lawrence Gap if filled with other hotels, many restaurants, small shops, nightlife and the beach is a 2 minute walk away. This hotel is at one end of The Gap so it never got too noisy. The Dover Beach hotel is next door. They have a nice balcony by the pool (just walk straight through the hotel) overlooking the ocean. Next to the balcony is a small restaurant that serves breakfast, lunch and dinner and is reasonably priced. Our trip was topped off when we checked out ...
The hotel is close to the beach and in a great location for restaurants. The front desk has limited hours. We arrived at the hotel at midnight. The check in process was actually easier than some hotels that have front desk personnel 24 hours/day.
Great location, and the room had a kitchenette so it was nice to be able to have a few meals in. The staff was absolutely awesome and so helpful.
Very clean and cozy. Nice friendly staff. They will go out of the way to make you feel special. They palnned a surprise b-day party on the El Tigre cruise for my dad. Close to the St. Lawrence gap night life and action but not too close. The Dover beach nearby should be avoided if you are not a strong swimmer.
The Gap area is very cool, a great walking area. The hotel was less than a block from the beach on a side street. It is your standard Caribbean hotel, pretty spartan. Our flight left at 7:30 am and there was no clock in the room, however, the owner volunteered to come knock on our door at 5am. It's a nice homebase with a small kitchen.
This hotel does not have many amenities, but is a very good hotel for the cost. Each room has a balcony with table and chairs, TV, full kitchenette, soap, towels (none to take to the beach though). The room has a fan and AC, but the ac is not good and like a second fan. This was the biggest problem I had. The towels and sheets are not great quality, but they are clean. We were only supplied with two thin pillows- but we didn't ask for more, we may have gotten more had we asked. We got full maid service every day. One thing I really liked about the hotel was that it was very clean, no bugs etc. The outlets in the room are the same as in the US and we had no need for the adapter or converter we brought. The office is not open all day, but they were very helpful in setting up tours and activities. They also have drinks and sunblock for purchase in the office and a lending library. They keep at least one cat in the office. I am allergic, but it did not bother me. The hotel next door- the D...
Beach Access two separate beds made to be one. Felt the space inbetween
I liked my oceanview room however cleanliness was an F in my books due to the mold I found the next day on my pillowcase My room was not ready when I arrived at 4:00 . The brochure clearly states check in at 3:00. I also chose this hotel because of the airport shuttle. After contacting and emailing this hotel several times, we were not able to book the shuttle. There was no response from the hotel, and or return email after leaving several messages.
The staff were great, helpful and friendly. The breakfast is actually a great value as well, since food in Barbados is generally very expensive. We stayed at Infinity twice, first when we arrived into Barbados, and for our last night. We decided to return to Infinity because after traveling around the entire island, no other hotel offered the same value for the money. For the same price elsewhere, we were staying in shabby rooms located in far to reach places without a car. In comparison, the Infinity is a breath of fresh air. It simply has everything you want/need on your vacation minus the stress or cost. If we ever return to Barbados, my boyfriend and I would use the Infinity as our base for our entire trip. The pool isn't all that, but we didn't even think to use it with the beach just steps from the hotel. It would have been nice if we didn't have to pay for an umbrella on the beach. That really should come with the chairs. Nothing other than that.
Location was nice for walking to restaurants Would like to have had a coffee maker instead of instant coffee in room. Breakfast menu needs to be improved. Daily buffet would be so nice. the restaurant location is beautiful but underused because of its menu.
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.
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...
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!
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.
