My fiancé and I stayed at the House for 4 days.. and we did not want to leave. Everyone was really attentive and welcoming. The House is a smaller Adult Only boutique hotel with beach access. It is very relaxing and quiet on the property. The rooms were constantly cleaned and the staff was very helpful. (Just to name a... More

The House is a very fine house. We recently returned from a week at the house and are already planning a repeat. If you like, intimate, relaxed and pampered atmospheres far from the madding crowds then the house is for you. After a long morning of flying, we were met with cold menthol towels and rum punch. Alvin gave us... More

My husband and I have just returned from a wonderful holiday to celebrate our 1st wedding anniversary. Staying at The House was one of the BEST decisions we've ever made. This boutique hotel is simply amazing. The minute we walked though the door into the open plan reception/dinning/bar area, we were bowled over. The views are spectacular and the overall... More

My husband and I recently stayed at The House to celebrate our 2nd wedding anniversary. It was our first time traveling to Barbados and, thanks to The House, definitely not our last. We were looking for a couples only resort and this place fit the bill. With less than 40 rooms, it was quiet and intimate with personalized service, where... More

Our stay at The House was wonderful. The service was great, the resort and beach were pristine and the food at Daphne's Restaurant was delicious. It is an adults only resort so if you're looking for a quiet, romantic getaway, it's perfect. I would definitely return to The House during my next trip to Barbados.

My husband and I stayed here for 10 days in August. We loved it! It's a boutique hotel for adults and is not your usual "one size fits all" type of place. We had a gorgeous one bedroom suite with spacious living room and ... his and her bathrooms! We opted for an ocean view and it was worth every... More

The House is small and elegant. Our room and patio were perfect. The pool and surrounding area are beautiful. The champagne breakfast was really nice. All that being said, it is the staff that sets this hotel apart from others. They are extremely friendly, yet very professional and they take great care in making sure their guests are well taken...

I only visited The House for sundowners but this adult only hotel would be my first choice of where to stay if I returned to Barbados. This fabulous all suite hotel with gorgeous rooms, an unpretentious and totally relaxed feel, wonderful touches like the arrival massage and with a fabulous beach to enjoy sundowners ticks all the boxes. Yes it’s... More
