We just returned from a 6 day stay at The House. It met every one of our needs and wants and then some. The House was the most relaxing place I've ever stayed. I would go back again in a heartbeat. The rooms were excellent and spacious, the beach was fantastic and the service was outstanding. Each and every ambassador... More

There can not be much to add to the reviews of others about The House. It is a great place to stay in Barbados. The atmosphere is very relaxed for adults only, the accommodations are extremely comfortable and well appointed, the breakfast buffet is good (although without the great range of items you would see at a larger 5 star...

The House was a very warm small adult only boutique hotel. The staff was incredibly helpful and friendly. When asking for directions to bus stop, staff actually walked us there. The room was very cozy. Having two bathrooms was a real plus. However, the service went downhill a little on Saturday and Sunday, no turn down service and did not... More

The House is a small, adults only boutique hotel and our stay overall was very good. The first thing to note is that the hotel does not have its own restaurant - but Daphne’s is right next door and it was a plus as the food on the night we visited was excellent. The hotel complex is small and as... More

We were left waiting on the beach for over four hours before making our own enquiries if our room was ready. For such a small property this was unforgiveable treatment. The room we booked was seaview suite yet allocated a garden/pool view suite - still unsure if it was correct.. Somewhat disappointed with quality as the room smelt a bit... More

The most amazing ambiance and service can be found at The House. My experience there was nothing short of incredible, especially the service from Agnes and Christopher, who kept our glasses full and smiles present all evening. They are true gems. Totally unforgettable experience!

We can't wait to go back to The House as we loved every moment of our stay there. Staff are helpful, attentive and friendly,the rooms are large, comfortable, clean and air conditioned. The champagne breakfast is to die for and is sufficient to keep you going until the arrival of complimentary ice cream or fruit at mid-day. Evening canapes on... More

The quality of service at the The House was truly amazing. Special thanks to Agnes, Cherry-Ann & Christopher for bringing excellent service and creating an memorable experience and a very nice setup that brought the ambiance alive. I recommend The House to anyone who wants to experience quality service at its best.

Thanks to Agnes, Cherry Ann, Christopher, Diana and Rawle for making my partner's birthday dinner on the beach the most amazing night. The set up was breath taking with tourches lining the beach and romantic candle light on the table. Couldn't have done it any better. The House is truly the best.
