First of all, I have to give a big thank you to Diana who added that extra sparkle to our very laid back 6 nights here. Her smoothies are just the best - ask her for recipe recommendations! Mind you, all the staff were very helpful and friendly and make The House experience a memorable one. Of course, the beautiful... More

This was our 3rd visit to The House. Many people seem to return. As soon as you arrive the staff are most welcoming & friendly and do remember you from previous visits. Most staff have been there for many years! Agnes is amazing. She seems to do everything so don't know what her job description is! We've stayed in an... More

This hotel is on the west coast and has a beautiful soft sandy beach. When it comes to service this hotel is simply sublime. I cannot praise the team highly enough as anything you wanted was always possible. If you wanted to you could sit by the pool or beach, not move all day yet have water, ice cream, cool... More

Just returned from a fantastic week at The House. Staff (ambassadors) were fantastic at every level - they could not have been more friendly and more helpful. Location is great - set directly on the beach and a walk away / short taxi from all the good restaurants. Rooms are pretty simple and typically bajan in style - i would... More

We have just returned from our second trip to Barbados and "The House", and what a wonderful relaxing time we had yet again. We had a garden view room this time. It was lovely to be able to walk out straight from the room every morning and sit on the patio area and take our coffee overlooking the beautiful garden... More

Feel so relaxed after a week at The House. Small personal and quiet. We could not fault the whole experience - although you have to show some self discipline or the breakfast, afternoon tea and canapes will make you unable to have dinner. Fantastic room, amazing location and wonderful staff make The House build lifelong memories.

We have been to Barbados 7 times now over the past 20 years and have stayed in many lovely hotels including The Colony 2 years ago. The House is something different and has a special feel about it. The room was clean & roomy with free Wi-Fi. The TV also showed live football games etc if that is what you... More

Our second visit to this island paradise. Named 'The House' because they want you to feel at home. Completely unique on the island I believe as a boutique hotel with 34 rooms that are immaculate. The service is second to none and the whole place is just designed for guests to enjoy maximum relaxation in a contemporary environment right on... More

They are all such lovely friendly people, especially Kerrie and Rawle. We would definitely go back and stay at the House and... More

Having never visited Barbados, we decided to end a cruise of the Caribbean with a week-long stay on this wonderful island. Our neighbours, who had stayed at The House on honeymoon three years earlier, and who joined us here again for a fantastic week, said we would like the "vibe". They were so right. There is little if anything to... More
