This hotel had beautifully furnished rooms with wonderful views out to sea. All the staff were very attentive apart from when we checked out, It would have been nice to have had the offer of some help with our luggage as we had to carry 3 suitcases down from the top floor. The sunbeds were superb though they were being... More

Wonderful boutique hotel in a glorious position on the water's edge. Marvellous staff and many little extras. This was our third visit and certainly not our last. Great champagne breakfast and afternoon tea.

This was our 3rd stay at the house, what makes this holiday is the staff, they are trained to pamper you, all the staff are very happy and always ready to help in anyway, the little extras that they add to your holiday are great,

If I tell you that this was our 5th stay at The House in five years, then I think you will already appreciate that it is a favourite spot for us. The House is clearly very successful at retaining staff so you see the same welcoming familiar faces year after year who greet you by name. The beach service seems... More

It's been almost 5 years but we can't wait to go back! The people were wonderful, the service was amazing, it's just what you would imagine your honeymoon to be... More

I will try to make this as balanced as possible. Cannot fault the helpful approach of the staff (cleaners, bar staff, managers). They were always on hand, always willing and able to offer any assistance requested. For example, I became unwell on the holiday and the hotel staff arranged for me to see a Dr and collected the prescription within... More

This was our second visit to The House. The service remains excellent with staff friendly but not overbearing, Situated in an ideal location for the many restaurants in the area, the hotel is one of the best i've visited. Its all about the people! Already booked for next year.

From the moment we were met at the airport by our meet & greet hostess, to chatting to Livingstone Alleyne our taxi driver we felt, once again, welcome and at home in Barbados. Then the warm welcome from Cherry Ann and Alvin when we walked into The House just settled it - we would be returning here! Joanna, the manager,... More
