My husband and I arrived at the The Island Inn earlier in December. We checked in easily and the receptionist was very helpful. We were offered a drink as soon as we arrived, perfect!
The hotel is not on the beach front, but Pebbles Beach less than a minute's walk away and is stunning.
We thoroughly enjoyed our weeks stay. The hotel has 24 rooms and is quite quiet. We found this a lovely aspect as we were able to chat and get to know our fellow holiday makers. This was great for us. If we wanted to go out to enjoy the night life we could arrange a taxi and didn't have far to go.
The room we stayed in overlooked the pool, (the pool is rather small and cold although you do adjust to the temperature quickly) the room was exceptionally spacious, air conditioned, and immaculate. There is a safe located in the room but this is not bolted down. All public areas in the hotel were also kept clean.
The previous review reporting about breakfast, lunch and dinner is very accurate therefore I wont duplicate what has been said.
The bar service could sometimes involve a few minutes wait as the barmen may wait on tables or needed to clear up. The only issue we had is that the bar would close at 11pm, quite often than not we as well as a few other guests were still enjoying the evening. We needed to order an extra round of drinks which was not a problem. Please could the bar stay open a little later??
This holiday was great for us, just what we wanted a quiet, relaxing and tranquil time. We would definately return to Barbados and to the Island Inn. Thoroughly enjoyed our stay!
