We got married at The House on Saint Valentines day in 2015.The effort, care, support and thought the staff put into day was exceptional and beyond any conventional standards of customer care. The service took place on the beach, we then had a cocktail party with a steel drummer then dinner on the beach, all of which was of the... More

We have just had the most amazing stay at The House and could not recommend it more highly. We arrived and were greeted by Andrew who offered us a glass of champagne each whilst we booked in. Our room just lovely, overlooking the Caribbean with two balconies and wonderful living room and bathrooms with great spa toiletries. Breakfast on the... More

Stayed here for a few nights for our wedding anniversary. Great staff. Great property. Afternoon tea was very well done. The included breakfast was great. Location us good. Rooms were not quite as plush as I would expect for a $1000+ a night hotel. We would go again.

We had a fantastic time staying at The House. Everything was perfect. The food, the service, the beach and the rooms. All staff were so attentive and nothing was too much trouble. Lots of lovely touches ranging from high tea to the cleaning of your sunglasses. The location is close to all the great restaurants. The private beach was superb.... More

As a couple this hotel has everything we need, we like small boutique hotels, which I feel have a more personal feel and you certainly get this here. With I think only 37 rooms this is perfect, plus the bonus of no children, Adults only Our room was an ocean front suite, two large bathrooms, sitting room king size bed,... More

I suppose the best way of summing up my experience at The House is that from the moment we arrived until the moment we left, I had a huge smile on my face. First impressions are accurate: tranquillity, luxury, beauty and total indulgence. We were given a warm welcome and the offer of a glass of champagne as we arrived,... More

We have stayed at The House 9 times over the past 10 years, and every year it is a wonderful experience. Not only is the service incomparable, the staff itself is so unforgettable that they work their way into a visitor's heart in no time. I have traveled the world , and never have stayed in a country with people... More

Just returned from a week's stay at The House, and I would recommend this hotel to anyone looking for a relaxed, friendly and quiet atmosphere. The staff are among the most accommodating I've ever come across, and everything was as good as I'd hoped for. We plan on returning next year for an even longer stay.

The House provided exactly what I expected, an exclusive, high-end, boutique experience on one of the most beautiful beaches in the world. Barbados is an expensive island, The House compares to other amazing hotels around the world where you can stay for considerably less, but this is Barbados in the Caribbean, and therefore higher priced. I have previously stayed at... More
