We are just about to finish our 8 night stay here, booked through British Airways. The room we stayed in had a beautiful view of the crystal clear turquoise ocean. What a way to wake up everyday. Stunning. Our room was dated but typical of a Caribbean holiday room. It was spotlessly clean. The bed comfortable and the kitchenette was... More

We have a 1 year old baby, so we couldn't swim on this beach... Wifi connection awful, we poorly got a sign on the lobby, but inside the room,... More

First visit to the Caribbean and therefore first to Barbados. Booked this trip two weeks prior to setting off, so 'captive' to availability. British Airways package for 7 nights was £863.00 each, including flights and our self-catering apartment, so not bad. Depending on where your apartment is, will definitely alter your perspective of a stay. I emailed Rosie in advance... More

Air con good, room clean, thats it really. Rooms were lovely in 1960, shame we turned up in 2014, pool bar and restaurant disgraceful with poor food and unfriendly lazy staff who watch TV all all day, no wonder the place was empty our entire stay . Hotel is more like a one star apartment, no atmosphere, no entertainment. Its... More

1st time in Barbados but by no means our last. This hotel is clean, well situated and have a wonderful staff. Mary is the jewel in the Dover crown. She will recommend excursions, book them for you, confirm your flight home, call a cab etc. We recommend Andy for a great cab experience and Mary can hook that up. Location... More

I have been traveling to Barbados every January for the past 11 years and the only bad thing I can say about The Dover Beach Hotel is, I wish I would have found it sooner. I've stayed there for the past 6 years and am already booking for next year. The staff are simply the best. The owner Jeff, the... More

+ Large room (208) in the main building with kitchenette. Excursion desk (Mary) was very good. Nice reception ladies. Beautiful view at the back (at the wild waves) We made breakfast in our own room. Shop with groceries nearby. - Guys kept offering us softdrugs, even on the terrace. Very annoying. Not always hot water, but no problem for us.
