I initially planned to spend seven nights at this hotel. Two of the nights I spent alone the other 5 with friends who arrived to the island latter. I arrived at the hotel, paid for the two nights and was escorted to my room. I initially ordered a King size bed but was placed in a room with two doubles... More

We stayed at this hotel in January 2014 and when looking it was very cheap compared to many of the hotels in Barbados. The rooms were good and spacious and the pool area was lovely. We had breakfast included but this was unfortunately very disappointing. We were served 4 pieces of toast (which was cold) in a basket with two... More

I saved to attend a destination wedding for a close friend, but spending more than $300 per night for a room was well beyond my budget; thus I opted to reserve a room at the Sunbay for about 1/3 the cost and it was a really good decision. The front desk staff couldn't be more friendly; they ensured we traded... More

Recently, i stayed at Sunbay Hotel, Barbados- it was the perfect hotel. Great staff, accommodating rooms and facilities, great prices and lovely atmosphere. My 12 year old nephew enjoyed himself and we both had a ball. I recommend this place to families, couples, groups, etc. Thank you Leeanne for everything...

Let's start with the staff, in a word WONDERFUL very friendly group of folks who did a good job at making us feel at home. The hotel is within walking distance from Oistins a great place to hang out and eat some awesome seafood. Now back to the hotel, from the front it is blah, not much fanfare. Our room... More

I stayed at this hotel for a few days. My room was very clean, and my balcony was one of a few that looked over the road to the small beach, and I could hear the sea. The bathroom was a decent size, with a bath and shower, plenty of hot water. There was a hair dryer, although I was... More

If you are a budget conscious traveler and would like a clean, comfortable place to stay, then I would recommend the SunBay Hotel. The hotel itself was somewhat dated, but it was clean spacious and comfortable. The SunBay even had real hot water. (I have found that warm water, not hot, seems to be the norm in the Caribbean).
