The room was huge (since it was an apartment) and well furnished. Full kitchen was great for quick breakfasts, which we ate out on on patio. Laundry was very welcome, so we could rinse and dry our bathing suits and beach towels (supplied by the hotel) every evening. Staff was very friendly and helpful, booking us excursions, dinners and a rental car. Highly recommend the Beachview.
The accommodations were like new. The kitchen had everything we needed. The view is great. The Beach View has two wonderful pools and a beautiful beach is just across the road. The Beach View is a little far from the airport (the hotel arranged for one of their preferred cab drivers to meet our late evening flight), but otherwise well located. It is on a main busy street and local buses ($1 US) are frequent and provide a memorable ride to Holetown or Bridgetown. The staff could not have been more friendly and helpful. There are several very good restaurants within walking distance and others a short bus ride away. The staff happily made reservations (recommended) for us. I can't say enough good things about this place, and we are eager to get back to recapture that Barbados feeling.
The Beach View wasn't exactly what we were expecting, but in the end, we were extremely pleased with the whole experience. Our major complaint, and something we had not read about in any of the reviews we read, is that the hotel is right on a busy road. When we went to Reception the next morning to complain about the noise, the hotel staff went out of their way to accomodate us. Natalie and Carrie in the office were so friendly and helpful in booking a car for us, making dinner reservations, etc. The breakfast staff was also extremely fun and friendly. The suites are huge and really nice with great patios. The proximity to the shopping and restaurants in Holetown is perfect. Overall, we really enjoyed our stay at the Beach View. We will definitely be back.
Friendly service. Clean rooms. Management upgraded our room but was reluctant to assist us in finding reservation for New Year's eve outside of the hotel which held its own event. With a little effort we secured a reservation at Champers on our own. Friendly staff but not always the most competent. Clean rooms but the windows are missing mosquito screens which are absolutely necessary. Internet extremely slow and the signal rarely reached the room. In summary, 5 star prices for 3.5 star quality.
We stayed at the all inclusive for our honeymoon and could have been any happier. The hotel's food, amenities and location were all great to the point that we look forward to staying there again. You can pay more but that does not mean that you will get more. Also, the staff and the facility managed well. As travelers we are always looking for places that allow us unwind and be tourist and we do not quibble over small things.
Just returned from a wonderful week at the Almond Beach Club. The accomodations were great, the ocean was a stone throw from our balcony, and the bar was just around the corner from the room. The margarittas were fantastic. We love the water and the snorkling was excellent with a reef and two ship wrecks within an easy swim from the Club. The service was fair, but some of the workers took the time to learn our names and shared our experiences on a daily basis. The kitchen staff went out of there way to provide us with picnic lunches for our excursions. Meet alot of interesting people and made a lot of new friends. We were meet at the airport by an employee of the tour guide service. She had arranged transportation to the Almond and later meet with us to book our outings for the week. Everyone was on time and the trips were a lot of fun. I did feel like we were stiffed a couple of times by the locals. On one trip we stopped for lunch at a local roadside dinner and the prices ...
We visited this past week.Hotel was at 50% capacity.The service was great.Room was a suite ,pool side .No troubl se getting reservations at sister hotel ,Almond bay village. Best ever Italian food and attentive service.Enids restaurant prepares island food,the best soups we ever tasted. The 100 yard beach is the only downside,full of rocks and coral.Walk 500 yards to a lovely beach on clear,calm water. Wait staff put on a fashion show in bathing suits,they were great.All adults only guests mostly from UK and Canada.Very friendly.Book a private island tour on your own $105.00 US for 3 hours.
Great place to relax for peace and quiet. No kids. The staff was very friendly and acommodating
The sunny island, supper staff, best food and supper service, enjoy !!!
The front desk/office staff friendly & polite, however the staff workers - the woman to be specific, were just the opposite. My husband and I travel quite a bit, and I've never met more impolite, hostile, rude staff workers. The standard room was very small to the point of uncomfortable but clean. The beachfront is unaccessible to guest to use for swimming, must walk down some ways for beach access. The restaurant food was average sort of bland, surely nothing to rave about. We were unable to secure reservations at the 2 other restaurants on location and at the sister hotel Almond Beach Village for dinner. The one restaurant ALWAYS available is mostly buffet style meals. Not at all what I expected. Beware the All-Inclusive has many exceptions and they push activities and tours on the guest which are pricey.
My friend and I booked this trip for a relaxing, uneventful, quiet vacation after some rough times at work and in life. We picked it because it's all inclusive and adult only. Needless to say, we had a fabulous time! From sleeping oceanside in the middle of the day then waking up for afternoon tea, to taking the Rum and Island tour, boat rides and snorkeling trips for relatively little or no money since all water sports were included in the price of the room. The hotel staff was fanastic by making sure to give us good tips on things to do around the island and always engaged in meaningful, genuine conversation. Our room was way more than we expected since it had a living room and a separate bedroom and a whirlpool tub with a shower. We definitely want to go again to experience some of the island's festivals in the future but it will not be soon enough.
My husband and I stayed at this resort recently and loved the staff and especially how they did the registration when we arrived. They gave us a drink and basically took us to our room...we have never experienced that before. The room we were in, wow. It was a suite and the living room had only three walls so one of the walls was open but the bedroom was air conditioned. This was the most romantic room we have ever stayed in. At night, we would sit and relax with a drink in our room but it was like we were sitting outside, with complete privacy. The Spa was amazing. We luv to work out and they had great equipment and a gym set up that not a lot of people were using. I did get a massage as well which was very relaxing. We also did the turtle swim which I highly recommend. Everything was included so this worked really well for us. We can't wait to go back and try one of the other Almond Hotels!
The view, food and friendliness of staff Bed comfortable but quality of the room poor. Furniture tired. We were able to open patio doors but there was no proper balcony which we had paid for. The bathroom needed a complete refurbishment. The best part was the location with wonderful sea views.
I liked how friendly staff was! I arrived 3 hours later than I was supposed to, 2 in the morning and I was still greeted with a warm welcome! Housekeeping was efficient each day. The bathroom is nice and spacious and the beds were warm and soft. The living room had a comfy couch and and kitchenette. It felt like a home away from home. Would definitely recommend! I wish that we would have been able to use more than two devices on the internet connection. I could only connect my phone and my boyfriend's phone... wasn't able to add my laptop.
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.
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.
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.
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.
The beach was perfect - and the staff were very friendly.
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!!!
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.
Climate, resort, friednliness:) Balcony and balcony doors were not clean.
relaxing all rooms close to the beach n staff very helpful need another restaurant that is high end
Really friendly staff, good amenities and nice location
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...
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.
MY HUSBAND AND I STAYED AT BARBADOS BEACH CLUB THIS SEPTEMBER FOR OUR 2ND ANNIVERSARY!! WE ARE STILL TALKING ABOUT IT AND WANT TO GO BACK NEXT YEAR! THE STAFF WAS AMAZING THE ROOM WAS EXCELLENT AND CLEAN THE FOOD WAS GREAT AND IN GENERAL AN OVERALL WONDERFUL PLACE TO STAY!! THE PEOPLE OF BARBADOS WERE SO FRIENDLY AND WE ALWAYS FELT WELCOME. THE AIRPORT IS ABOUT 20 MINUTES AWAY AND EASY TO CATCH THE BUS AND PICK UP IT ONLY COST 2BDS.
It was me and my wifes first trip to Barbados and we stayed at the Barbados Beach Club. It is a beautiful hotel on the beach and the staff are very friendly. The location is perfect and the hotel is very nice. We loved it and would definately consider returning.

NOT SATISFIED,hotel room stinks,bath tub was so small i could not take a bath,not enough wash cloth,towels was lod and dingy
The Hotel is run down and not well maintained at all. The pictures on the advertisement are NOT what it looks like. The food is terrible and no hot water for showers. Hotel and staff not very friendly or willing to make it an enjoyable stay. Please do not waste you're money at this place like we did, spend the extra money and stay at a better place!!!!!!
This was my first trip to Barbados and it was awesome. I stayed in this hotel with a couple of friends and we had an excellent experience. The staff was friendly and very accomodative and the food was good. The rooms were really comfortable ideal for families, groups and couples alike. I would recommend it for vacationers who are looking for value for money.
This hotel is run down and nothing like what is advertised. The hotel staff was friendly, only because they are threatened by their SLUM LORD owner who is a real piece of work. The ammenities were terrible and the food was discusting. No hot water for 4 of the 7 days we were there,,when we complained,,,He (SLUM LORD) called us liars. The pictures advertised for this place are old, and show it when it was new. The maintenance is terrible,,it's run down and falling apart. Please DO NOT STAY HERE,and waste your money like we did....spend the extra money...and stay at the HILTON.
My husband and I recently stayed at barbados beach club and had a great time. The staff were all friendly and helpful and the food was pretty good too. The hotel itself is clean although the rooms could use an upgrade in decor. All in all we cant wait to go back.
Hotel was substandard. Guest services was helpful with information but hotel is old and not well maintained. Free activites listed on website were not available as described. Hard to get person to book this with. Pool closed at 6:00 so not swimming/Beach access was locked up at 7:00 so not able to stroll along the beautiful beaches. Drinks are in 4oz cup so didn;t feel like I was being catered to or even on vacation- no drink hotesses either. Would recommend Hotel next door - Boungavilla hotel! Food was bad even though it was included would have rather gone to restaurants. Music plays till 11:30 each night so unable to sleep. Rent umbrellas, deposit for towels - front desk only open till 6:00 - all is all it was an uncomfortable hotel if you want to be pampered or even general service. Hot water 50/50 chance of getting. Location is good. Beach is great! That's about it!
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.
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!
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.
