We stayed for 3 nights post Windstar Cruise. If you stay don't even try to check in until AFTER 4:30. We waited for over an hour for our room to be ready. Luckily they had a table set up with free rum punch & banana bread. I booked a oceanfront junior suite and they told me at check in that... More

Dear akbuddie, Thank you for sharing your review with us and the rest of the Tripadvisor family! We also appreciate the kind compliments about our rooms and Bougainvillea in general. Hopefully despite the short trip you would have gotten some time to explore Barbados and see some of our sights and experience the "Bajan"culture. Normal check in at hotels worldwide... More

This is a beautiful, quiet, and relaxing place to stay. There are nice, clean pools, and lots of lounge chairs around the pools and on the beach. I recommend this place for people who just want to get away for a quiet vacation. Close to Oistins and the Gap. One unfortunate thing, is that the ocean seemed to always be... More

Dear Moodymoo88, Oh dear, sorry to hear TripAdvisor was a bit difficult. But very happy to hear you made it anyway!!! Like most beaches in Barbados, our beach (Maxwell beach) is absolutely stunning and incredibly clean and well kept. What makes it even more special is that it is a very quiet beach, so quiet that even though it may... More

We recently returned from a one week stay at the bougainvillea and we can't say enough good things about this resort. We have been to many resorts in Barbados and this is our favourite by far! ( Fourth time at this resort by the way). The staff at the front desk are the most professional, friendly, and helpful crew we... More

This hotel was just perfect for us. We are a couple in our 50s who looked forward to peace, relaxation and a taste of the Caribbean . Some reports state that the hotel was a little isolated, but we did not find this at all. In fact, it was in a perfect place to visit lots of the attractions on... More

Dear ErylAnn, What a wonderfully detailed review! Barbados has so much to offer and so many things to do that we love it when our guests have gone out to explore and get a taste of the real Barbados. Fridays is always a crazy night in Oistins, which is very nice for some but it can be overwhelming! Thursday and... More

We had a reservation, but arrived way too early to get into our rooms. They let us check in and use all the amenities until the rooms were ready. I was traveling with my adult son, and when it became apparent to the staff that they wouldn't be able to get us two rooms in the same building, they gave... More

We recently spent 2 weeks in this hotel and overall was a pleasant experience. The location is not ideal as it's a bit isolated and taxis/car is required to anywhere. The beach is very nice although the sea is very agitated and not suitable for those who aren't great swimmers and children. We were slightly disappointed as none of the... More

Lovely hotel. Have been twice. Standards good. Staff professional. Very relaxed atmosphere. Restaurant service very slow, but once you've planned for that, you adjust. Wine is expensive. Waves can be strong, but I wore a life jacket and found it fine. There's a nearby beach (5 minutes drive) where there are no waves and swimming great for those who consider... More

stayed here in Feb 2014. Hotel is clean and Tidy with a choice of 2 restaurants. Food is decent in both. Access directly onto the beach which is magnificent. There are also plenty of spots beside the pools within the complex if that's your thing. Short walk up the beach brings you to a shortcut to the shops and bars... More
