We stayed here in January 2012, I meant to write a review much sooner and it's only now (as I'm about to rebook for next year) that I've got round to it. This was the perfect hotel for us. We were with our one-year-old daughter, and were given two connecting rooms with a large terrace (three sofas, kitchen area and... More

Extremely disappointing.  Gibbs Bay Inn is a lot more run down than pictures on the Internet suggest and this has gone past being charming.  Bed linen wasn't fresh and plumbing issues left a smell of sewage in the room.  A recent change on ownership appears to have left day to day management in disarray.  The promised fridge was not stocked...

The best location on the island! It's quite and peaceful. The beach is absolutely stunning. However, we have mixed feelings about the accommodations. The open air concept makes this place really charming and cozy. Our room came with a private living room area and a kitchen which was completely open. The pool area is well done, great for lounging during... More

We were a party of 10 consisting of 4 fortysomethings, 2 19 year olds, 2 16 year old and 2 12-13 year olds. My good friend found Gibbs on the internet and we took a chance and it certainly paid off. When I say it is the BEST location in Barbs I do not exaggerate. Our stay was made especially... More

Spent 3 nights at the Gibbs Bay Inn. This was my first trip to Barbados and I was traveling alone. I wanted a place where I would feel comfortable and safe. After looking all over the internet and TripAdvisor I found this Inn. It looked like just what I had been dreaming of. I asked many questions and Toby answered... More

As regular visitors to the Island we knew what to expect from the location of the Inn. It sits immediately opposite a beautiful, quiet, sandy beach with calm blue water, but has easy access to other parts of the island with its variety of restaurants and activities. If you want to be in the middle of a town with restaurants... More

I have to be honest I was very let down by the place - it looks nothing like the pictures on the website at all and is very old and run down place and way over priced..........There is very little atmosphere and not alot around the place so you must either get taxi or bus as you cannot walk the...

We stayed the week of July 18-26. Our daughter got married in Barbados and some of our extended family came also (17 total). Toby and Karen (owners) took VERY good care of us! Breakfast was delicious, and the afternoon tea and goodies were also. Toby arranged an island tour for all of us, gave us suggestions on where to eat... More

We have just spent two weeks staying at Gibbs Bay Inn. We are two families making up a party of eight in total. Our children are all teenagers. Gibbs Bay Inn has been absolutely perfect. I can’t praise Toby and Karen enough for providing us with great accommodation coupled with really personal service and relaxed atmosphere. We had a huge... More

I was worried at first when we got to Barbados, taking a glance at the yellow buses. However, that changed when we were welcomed by Toby. He greeted us and gave us our rooms as soon as possible so we could rest from the flight. Every morning they had a variety of breakfast foods including fruit, succulent potatoes, and fresh... More
