This is a quietist hotel although it is close to Hometown and more activities. A very friendly place and quite popular as several people have revisited year on year.It is not a brash hotel. If you want a disco every night this is not for you. There is entertainment and some dancing al fresco. We thoroughly enjoyed our week and... More

For the second year in succession we have just spent a wonderful two weeks in Discovery Bay, Holetown, Barbados. Alike with last year the friendliness of the staff and their willingness to go the extra mile to make our stay enjoyable was evident from the moment we came through the hotel door. This is due in no small part to... More

Our third visit to Discovery Bay and it's only getting better. The General Manager Brian Carter is doing an exceptional job in gradually improving this 3 star hotel (with the help of a good team). It's position is one of the best in Barbados on a delightful beach with a two minute walk into the centre of Holetown (great shops... More

We have just returned from this hotel, we had a beach front club room which has a balcony that overlooks the sea. We had friends staying in other beachfront hotels, private houses and apartments that were far more expensive , but have the same view. Discovery Bay is fantastic value for money, we had no problems, with Beds, Water pressure... More

We would strongly advise anyone who is in a mixed race relationship NOT to stay in this hotel. Received extremely distressing discriminatory treatment from staff under instructions from the general manager (Brian [--]) from start to finish of our stay, which ruined our New Year holiday. Made to feel very unwelcome and uncomfortable throughout and could not wait to get... More

Just got back from Dicovery Bay and have to say most of the reviews are spot on. You get what you pay for and in Barbados this isn't that much money so what you get is distinctly average. I'll start with the room, big bed bit saggy where people have sat on the side, stained lampshades, god knows what with!... More

I am very sorry that you found our beds to be saggy; I have started to replace the older beds but still have some rooms that haven’t received any. This room was not inspected properly hence the stained lamp shades; this not our normal standard and I apologize for this. All of our bathrooms were re-tiled which gave them a... More

We loved this hotel mainly because of Brian and his amazing team. The staff were so friendly nothing was too much trouble. A beautiful beach with Malcolm ready with a deckchair and umbrella. The bar was a good place to meet up with other guests and then have dinner and listen to the evenings entertainment. Yes maybe the rooms need... More

We stayed at Discovery Bay for 2 weeks of January in a club room with sea view which has spectacular views of the sunset over the sea.. We had stayed here once before 12 years ago when it was a 4 star.. It had some issues then and has some issues now. The many reviews give a good insight, but... More

What do we want from our main holiday of the year? To feel welcome; clean & comfortable accommodation; good location – close to the beach; adequate choice of food & drinks and friendly staff.
