Have just spent 10 days at this hotel and feel on the whole it was very good value. The room we had( a deluxe) was particularly nice, clean, spacious with a good size balcony overlooking the sea. Despite the hotel backing onto the road, we were not really bothered (But then we're Londoners and used to it!). The boardwalk along... More

We stayed at Soco hotel over Christmas and New Year. Our room was spacious and had an efficient and quiet air conditioner. There was a digital safe, an ironing board and iron, tea and coffee making machine. Supplies were topped up daily. In addition there was a large modern television which we did not use as we preferred to sit... More

We stayed at the SoCo from 3rd until 10th January. I would highly recommend this location. All of the staff were friendly and couldn't do enough for us. The food was exceptional and plentiful. The rooms bright and airy. My only downside was the noise from traffic on the road, which could probably be improved with upgrading the doors. However,... More

My partner and I stayed at the Soco Hotel just before Christmas and feel that its a very special boutique hotel. I loved that fact that there are only 24 rooms but didn't expect it to be as brilliant as it was as it only opened a few months ago. My partner and I travel a lot and the Soco... More

We visited the SoCo Hotel over New Year's with a group of nearly a dozen friends. We did a lot of research prior to booking the SoCo, and had high expectations. We were not disappointed. The hotel is beautifully maintained, the food was delicious, and the staff extremely friendly. A previous reviewer said the portions were small. It is true... More

This is an excellent mid-price all-inclusive hotel, beautifully situated at the Bridgetown end of the Hastings Boardwalk. On that basis, it would get a 5-star rating for its friendly service, good-sized and spotlessly clean rooms, and excellent restaurant. However, it is pitching itself as a high-class boutique hotel where attention to detail is key, and it has some way to... More

On reading the reviews I thought that this was going to be an amazing place but we were disappointed, I think possibly because we just didn't feel it suited us. The food was okay, but a little boring on occasions, the rooms were nice but not as clean as I would expect, I would think that give it another six... More

We've just returned from the most fantastic week at The SoCo Hotel. Having visited Barbados on a number of occasions, the SoCo is by far the best hotel we've stayed at on the island. We absolutely agree with all the previous reviews and can't wait to return. Thank you to all the amazing staff.
