This was the third time we have been to the Bourgainvillea, so it obviously meets our expectations. As others have said, it is in a great location - on the beach, end of St Lawrence Gap 5 minutes along beach, bus on main road 5 minutes etc. - the grounds are well kept and our room (it's worth upgrading from...

Thank you very much for your review. We would like to apologise to you for the challenges you experienced with the car rental. In your particular instance, the agent recommended this company because the other companies were out of cars. The additional $10 per day for the extra driver was an unfortunate oversight on the part of the Activities agent... More

I read a lot of reviews about this hotel and all the pros matched up and a few of the cons also matched up so I wasn't disappointed in those things. My husband and I met my parents in Barbados on the 29th of Jan. at a hotel on the West Side for a few nights, just to be over... More

We stayed here for 9 nights. Had a standard studio room on the Roadside block on the 3rd floor. At first we thought it was a bit dingy looking but after being there for a few days, we just loved it. It was a bit worn and dated but the beach is great. We had a wonderful view. Never used... More

Wte visited Bougainvillea from Jan. 15th to Jan.24th 2011. This was our tthird visit and we had a great time as usual! Our deluxe studio was lovely and we were very close to the ocean. Our view was spectacular! We travelled with our daughter, her husband and our two small grandchildren - ages 3 and 4. They had the time... More

Resort is on a fantastic beach and the rooms are good value for money, The staff all friendly & helpful. Didn't like lanterns restaurant as each time we ate there was something missing from the food ie no mushrooms in the pasta etc. Downside was that there wasn't any beach bars in walking distance to have a nice lunch or...

Found one girl at reception not at all helpful. Asked for a late check out (they charge US $100 for this and we were happy to pay it) as we had a late long overnight flight. She informed us that ouyr room was a 'time share' and the owners were coming in so we could not have the late check... More

Had a very pleasant stay at Bouganvillea for a long weekend. We had a studio room with a view of the pool and a partial view of the ocean. The room was spacious, very clean and had a large bathroom with a tub shower and hair dryer. There was also a galley kitchen with a full-sized refrigerator, microwave, hot plate,... More

My husband and I were on our 25th Wedding Anniversary trip and we came from our stay at the Palm Island resort in The Grenadines (see my Trip Advisor review) and were headed next to St. Lucia. This required an overnight stay on Barbados. I chose the Bougainvilla Beach Resort from the other Trip Advisor reviews. We wanted some place... More

Would have rated this hotel a 4, if not for the issues with the bar and restaurants. But first, for the positives... We recently spent four nights at the Bougainvillea to celebrate our 20th wedding anniversary. Without asking, we were upgraded to a 1 bedroom, the closest unit to the beach on the first floor. While the room was a... More

Thank you for your review and for choosing Bougainvillea for your special anniversary. We appreciate your feedback and first and foremost sincerely apologise for the challenges that you experienced. The change in management of the restaurants literally was an overnight process, and the day you arrived was the also the first day for most of the restaurant and bar staff.... More
