This hotel has to take 1st prize for location. You can lay on the beautiful beach and in 2 strides you can take a cooling dip in the pool. The staff are extremely friendly and helpful. I would recommend you try breakfast here. Despite previous reviews saying it is expensive, unless you go for the main "all in" buffet (... More

I stayed here with my partner a little while back and had an amazing time. The hotel is right on the beach-front which at the time we practically had to ourselves. The hotel was clean and the staff were friendly and very accommodating. The rooms were clean and tidy. The only thing I will say is that the sea on... More

Visited Barbados many times and this is the best hotel so far, hosts one of the best beaches on the island and the location is perfect to access the Gap. Only a few minutes walk turning left out of the hotel reception takes you into the main street where there is an array of bars and restaurants, or turn right... More

Writing this as I'm waiting to be picked up from the hotel. Lovely location, superb beach front and yes there is lots of seaweed but the hotel make sure it's picked up regularly and it does not spoil the view. The sea is a little rough hence the red flag but plenty of people still able to swim in it.... More

Haven't stayed here in a while as we have a Timeshare now, very close by, but always visit several times: Sunday Pie Buffett is always good especially as accompanied by a fab Steel Band - so good to listen to; Monday night with the Red Men is great, sitting by the sunken bar looking out onto beautiful beaching any time...

We had a lovely time at the hotel, couldn't fault anything about it, a very easy relaxing holiday, great room, we had a 2nd floor sea view room which was lovely, even saw two turtles come and lay their eggs, which was such a privilege. The food and drinks at the hotel were great, and reasonably priced too. There are... More

Just back from another trip to this lovely hotel which is right on Dover beach which is never crowded and you can always find a palm tree to lay under. The only problem this time was the red flag was out for the 2 weeks we were there but you could walk down to the entrance to Dover beach and... More

The wonderful staff and it's excellent location make this hotel perfect for those seeking a quiet break within easy reach of St Lawrence Gap and its array of restaurants and pubs/clubs. In summary: - Rooms - we were in 316 which had a side sea view in a central location close to the pool, restaurant and beach. Rooms were spacious,... More

Excellent hotel and staff very friendly and if you had a problem they were there to sort it very quickly The only thing I would of like to have seen was a bit more evening entertainment but I guess due to time of year this could be the reason
