Good location near the ocean. All rooms looking at the ocean. Good for walkers and runners. Good style rooms....but when you look on details it is poor. For food lovers inappropriate. Main staff are nice but personal service is lax but that's normal in Caribbean. Hotel does not offer fresh juices or coconut water which I think is absurd in... More

Visited this beautiful, cozy hotel in october 2014 and had a great time. The food was excellent, staff were friendly and the hotel was stunning. Only issue we had was the sound from the roads travelling to the rooms and made it very difficult to sleep at night. I wish the soundproofing was better. Location is great. We found the... More

My girlfriend and I stayed at the Soco Hotel for six nights spanning New Years Eve. We were fortunate to have room 408 which is on the top floor (best view) and at the end closest to the beach. The only downside to being on the top floor is that there is no elevator and so hauling luggage up and... More

Stayed at the Soco on recommendation of Tropical Sky, didn't want to be surrounded by hoards of people and just wanted to relax! We were certainly not disappointed! Absolutely brilliant stay, staff were fantastic and always happy to help. Michelle is worth her weight in gold! The room was brilliant, stayed on the 2nd floor. View was brilliant from the... More

We stayed here back in July, on a travelzoo special deal for the last 4 nights of our holiday. Overall the a la carte menu was excellent, albeit a bit tiresome after the two days the standard was super. Bring a snorkel for the beach outside to swim with puffa fish. Alcohol choice was OK, shame the bar shut early/poor... More

We were at Soco for a week from 30/11/14. We flew from Birmingham via a Thomson Deamliner which potentially started the holiday brilliantly. When we arrived, Thomson disembarked their cruise guests first, and with that and long queues at immigration and a further unexplained delay with the baggage for the 50 or so staying on Barbados, we were delighted when...

The SoCo had just the vibe that we were looking for: low-key, chill and friendly. The small size made it easy to get to know the staff, who were accommodating and attentive. In particular, Michelle was extremely helpful in setting up a customized tour of the island and sharing tips for restaurants and other points if interest. Safety and cleanliness... More

We have been visiting Barbados for 30 years and seen many changes. The redevelopment of this area of the south coast is very welcome and after seeing the SoCo on our visit to the island last February we decided we would like to stay. Our stay was short, either end of a cruise but we will surely return. I can... More

We really enjoyed our week at the SoCo early December this year. What made it so enjoyable was the staff at the hotel. They were friendly, caring and attentive and went out of there way to make our holiday enjoyable. I wanted to say thank you and happy Christmas to them all , many thanks Jody and Mike .
