My first visit to Barbados I picked the Island Inn to stay and I couldn't be more happy. Very friendly staff and great accommodation. Best air conditioned room I have stayed in I had to stand below the vents just to check it was working as it was silent just the mating frogs at night kept me awake! I would... More

This hotel was well situated, clean and friendly. The key points worthy of note are as follows: 1. WiFi access is restricted to seating near the reception area. Those wishing to have broader access to WiFi should be mindful of this. 2. There are very few parasols within the small complex which can be problematic for those wanting to be... More

I've just returned from 10 days at the Island Inn, and it is far and away the best Carribean all inclusive hotel I've stayed in - I'm not saying that it's flawless, but it's a totally different experience when compared to the larger resorts. The positive experience started on arrival, and I was quickly checked in by Tracy and shown... More

Stayed here in September/October and had a lovely time. Wasn't our first choice but the hotel we originally booked closed for refurbishment 12 weeks before we were due to go. Although not on the beach the beach is only a 2 minute walk. Food and staff were really nice especially Maxine the manager and Earl the barman. Barbados is a... More

First of all the positives : 1. Location couldn't be much better as it is a 2 minute stroll to a wonderful beach, and a 2 minute stroll to the main road where you can get a bus or reggae taxi (2 Barbados dollars for each) into Bridgetown (takes about 10 minutes). Also quite close to the airport (taxi 22... More

The manager is the BEST...she is extremely personable, and will make every effort to come around and introduce herself all the while making sure everything is good...WOW! We never had such great service! Earl, the bartender is... More

The Island Inn is a great holiday venue if you want peace and quiet. Very close to the beach with fine white sand and the warmest sea crystal clear turquoise blue and so lovely and warm. On arrival a warm welcome offer of a cold drink and a fresh flannel to freshen up. The hotel from the outside is not... More

We stayed here this september. The staff are amazing. Nothing is too much trouble, and most of the time , the most common sound is laughter. If you are a history buff, this hotel is part of a Unesco World Heritage Site. I think if you had visited Barbados in the 50's as a wealthy traveller, this would be what... More
