Loved this hotel. great location and best beach with all rooms large and very well equipped, maybe a little dated but large balcony with superb sea views. Most staff were excellent and food really good too. Will come back for sure. Have also stayed at cobblers cove and turtle beach and this is better.

Picked up by the redoubtable Joan and whisked to the resort. Really friendly, informative and short induction in 15 minutes. Our room, like all rooms I think, looked directly over the beach and has a nice roomy balcony. Otherwise nothing too special about the room but perfectly functional, clean and comfortable. There are a few food options but we concentrated... More

A beautiful hotel with great staff, would highly recommend it. A fabulous location withe lovely views and right on the beach. Just perfect for a completely relaxing holiday but also nice and handy for Holetown if you fancy a bit of shopping.

Arrived today expecting an ocean front room given that the website states 72 rooms, all ocean facing but apparently there are 75 rooms, 3 of which are not recently refurbished and roadside. Bathroom is motel style. 1970s patio doors to the balcony. Beware when booking this hotel to ensure you don't get one of these rooms. Or book the Coral... More

The hotel is set on a beautiful beach and all of the rooms are ocean front. The water is calm, clear and warm. It is a small, intimate feeling property. I was only able to stay 1 night, but will return.

Such a nice and quiet beach. Friendly staff to help with food and drink. Water is very calm and lots of water sports to engage in. We went here 2 days in a row just wonderful. Can easily walk to small beach bars and boutique stores. This place is a must visit in Barbados.
