I stayed here with my friends and family for a fortnight. The hotel is quiet with lovely surroundings. Our hotel room was pretty basic but extremely clean and the maids did a great job at maintaining it. The pool is nice, quite shallow and small but perfect for a dip and for kids to play in. For an all inclusive... More

This was my 9th trip to this lovely Island and only once have I been back to the same Hotel twice, so this revue is done with some knowledge of the Island and People. The location of this Hotel on the West Coast is the biggest attraction. Lovely Beach and good access in and out of the Sea. Safe Swimming,... More

Me and 2 friends went to barbados for a 2 week holiday back in july last year. Although we were the youngest people there we still had a great time. Majority of the staff were fantastic and casandra especially made our stay more welcoming. The food was great but the breakfast did let it down a bit. The rooms in... More

I stayed here in March and to be honest, it was the most relaxed I've been in my life. My room was beachfront so I fell asleep and woke up to the sound of the waves and it was bliss. Each room had it's own private patio and then the six or so beach front rooms had a sandy stretch... More

This was our first trip to Barbados. The hotel's main asset is it's staff. From the manager to the cleaning staff, Rex Resorts are lucky to have this team. Some aspects of the hotel decor were a bit tired but everything worked, the bed was enormous and very comfy. We had a garden view which was fine. The food was... More

My boyfriend and I have returned a week a go from 10 days in paradise. Discovery Bay was everything we wanted it to be and more. Our room was lovely, our balcony looked over the rear gardens, we would often sit and watch the hummingbird and the mongoose. Our bed was the biggest hotel bed I've seen, the air conditioning...

This is a lovely hotel, very pleasant staff and lovely gardens. The beach is a t the bottom of the garden, so no long walk. Will go back. Air conditioning works and is so quiet, we've been a few places where is was broken or noisy. Afternoon tea was just fab. Chef's were very accommodating.
