The friendliest welcome I have ever experienced, staff couldn't do enough for us, they made our stay truly memorable. Our room was superb, spotless with a beautiful view of the wonderful beach. The food and drink was exceptional, and was served with a smile always. Nothing was too much trouble. If you are going to visit Barbados, this Hotel will... More

We stayed at SoCo last week and the food was utterly fantastic. The service was five star. (I could swear they put love in the food). The staff was very attentive and gracious. The view from the room was stunning. It's small boutique setting lends itself to making friends, which we did, and it made a wonderful holiday perfect. (... More

I went on a solo vacation and spent two weeks staying at the SoCo. The staff there is incredibly warm and work really hard to make sure that your stay is an enjoyable one. Since they knew that I was a woman traveling on my own, they even made the extra effort to look out for me during my stay,... More

When my husband and I read the reviews we thought are these reviews made up? Needless to say our stay was simply amazing! I have travelled extensively and have stayed at some very fine hotels and I must admit The Soco is up there for me. Where do I begin? The staff at the Soco ROCK! Incredibly personable and accommodating,... More

We were hoping that the Trip Advisor reviews of the SoCo Hotel were not exaggerations, and not too good to be true. Turns out we need not have worried. "A taste of paradise" indeed! This is the rare All-Inclusive that offers 5-star dining at every meal! We were impressed how the chefs were able to maintain such consistent high quality... More

I booked my hotel reservation based on the amazing reviews and although I have never posted I feel compelled to warn people of my stay as I feel it could happen again. My friend and I booked our hotel through the hotel directly as well as our taxi to the hotel feeling safe to have the hotel confirm all for... More

We appreciate all feedback and when a guest is disappointed in any way we take it very seriously. We very much regret that these guests had a negative experience during their visit to Barbados. This is not a straightforward situation, but we are confident that our staff followed the correct procedures and processes. In this particular instance, the interim police... More

Stayed here with my Sister for 6 days in August. Having worked for a major British Airline for 22yrs and travelled extensively staying in 5star luxury hotels I have to say I was a bit sceptical... I was pleasantly surprised! If your looking for a more personable stay in Barbados then this is the hotel for you. Only 24 rooms... More

Great stay at the SoCo for our two week relaxing break in Barbados Small hotel (22 rooms) all sea facing with plenty of space, wonderful comfy giant beds and contemporary furnishings. All-inclusive food and drink served by the most charming and friendly staff I have ever encountered. Not mentioning names as all the staff seem to be hand-picked to make... More

There is no doubt that the service at the SoCo hotel was anything less than extraordinary. The staff is attentive and extremely friendly. Andrew, Neil, and Dexter were awesome! The hotel property looks new and has a stylish modern design. The rooms are spacious and comfortable. We opted for a room on the fourth floor because it has the best... More
