“Fantastic”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 2, 2013

My wife and I stayed at Beach View for the fortnight - what a memorable experience. Fantastic spacious apartment that overlooked the pool and the sea with excellent facilities. Many restaurants local to the hotel and in nearby Holetown and can recommend Daphnes and Roti Den in Paynes Bay, Tides and Beach House in Holetown and afternoon tea at Sandy Lane. A little gem for authentic 'Barbadian' is Jagos - just a short walk up the hill to the right from the entrance to Beach View where you can be guaranteed a most friendly welcome and excellent very inexpensive local fare. A must is also the fresh fish from Paynes Bay Fish Market just across the road from Beach View where you can buy exquisite fresh fish (recommend the tuna and red snapper) which is easily cooked using the excellent facilities in the apartment. We regularly used the local buses to take us to all parts of the island - fantastic value at 2 Barbadian Dollars per trip! Finally thanks must be extended to Robin and Carrie (and family) for all their excellent help and advice - nothing too much trouble - and for their excellent hospitality - cocktails and canapés - at the weekly visit to their private residence adjacent to the beach! This creates a fantastic friendly atmosphere and enables you to meet all guests and results in a very friendly atmosphere around the apartments and especially around the pool complex. A most memorable and happy stay and we hope to be back!

Staff and facilities were both amazing. I would not hesitate to stay here again.
The staff made us feel very welcome and helped us with any thing we needed. The organised get togethers were great for meeting other guests.
The room was very comfortable and spacious and had all the equipment in that we needed.
I thought that they should put on a BBQ more than one night a week as the food was excellent

What can we say, absolutely fantastic apartments, home from home. Spacious, well equipped, beautifully decorated, balconies and views you fall in love with. On arrival we were welcomed by Robyn and Sonia. Our luggage had been taken to our apartment. Robyn took us to the apartment and explained everything we needed to know. A helpful food welcome pack was there for us. We settled in easily. Having been to the island numerous times before, this was our first experience of self catering, usually do all inclusive. Went shopping at local supermarket Jordans and planned our days. Had a good breakfast, stocked up beach bags for the day, and travelled on local buses to many beaches around the island. Accra beach, Dover beach, Mullins bay, Carlisle bay, visited friends on south coast. Spent some time around the pool, which was lovely, cleaned every day. Nice safe pool. Had breakfast and lunch at the Hut, yummy. Went to sundowners on roof top for a few rum punches to watch the sunset and meet other guests, and visited Robyn's home for cocktails, lovely evening. Re the few comments about air con, it's simple really, doors shut air con on, doors open air con goes off. If you feel cold with air con on, open the doors and put fans on. Nice touch too, free wifi, very helpful and never any issues with this, always got on Internet. Thank you so much Robyn, Sonia, Carrie, James, Henrietta, security staff, and bigs thanks to our lady who cleaned our apartment. You all made our stay FANTASTIC. WE WILL BE BACK. :-)

Room Tip: Request higher floor and just enjoy yourselves

Stopped here for two weeks on our honeymoon.We where met by the owner and made very welcome the lady in reception was very helpful and friendly as was all the staff. the apartment was a great size and very clean and had all the appliances you would have in your own kitchen .We stopped on the second floor where we had a good view of the beach and the garden. there is a lovely beach across the road my tip if your going for a walk on beech head towards holetown it is lovely,if you want to travel around the buses only charge two $2.00 Barbados dollars or 1 USD per trip any where the yellow Reggie buses are great.We hired a moke for a week they are great fun even in the rain,if you want to do something different try the submarine experience from Bridgetown harbour we went to a depth of 149 ft and even saw a ship wreck great,shops don't open a Sunday well not many just a hand full.so to sum all up great apartment great location and very friendly locals. TINA & STEVE

Room Tip: all rooms seem to have great views of garden or beach.ours was room 206 great:

We absolutely loved our time at beach view and Robin and Carrie were great hosts! We chose Barbados and Beach View for our honeymoon and this turned out to be the perfect start to our marriage.

Our room, on the third floor was perfect with breathtaking views of the Caribbean Sea and we were so close to the beach,..... we could hear the waves on our balcony and in the bedroom! It was truly bliss! This was largely owe this to Carrie as I sent her a cheeky email stating what we had in mind and she clearly didn't not disappoint!!! Thanks again Carrie!

Great location with the beach on our doorstep and plenty of restaurants to choose from,... Personal faves were Daphne's and The Cliff both less than 5 minutes walk away.

We will definitely be back!!!!!!

Aasam & shine! Thanks again Robin and Carrie!

Ps. Your house is amazing!!!! :-)

Room Tip: Third floor in the paw paw building has awesome views!

As with all the other reviews, we certainly have to agree that these are superb apartments. The apartments have everything you could wish for. You also receive a welcome pack of tea, coffee, milk, butter, bread, water and jamvery welcome after the long journey from England. Also the added bonus of having beach/pool towels and the ability to wash & dry clothes. Fantastic. All the staff are extremely helpful & friendly. The cleaning staff are superb. The poolside area is kept very clean and there are plenty of sun beds.
A couple of small niggles- Payne's beach does not have any sun beds or tree cover therefore it gets very hot and you are unable to stay on this lovely little beach for any length of time. Other parts of nearby beaches have sun beds but these are only available to hotel guests staying on that particular part of the beach. We had to travel to Mullins beach in order to get sun beds and umbrella cover during the hot days and we really enjoy being by the sea.
We had excellent days out going to Harrison's Cave, Mount Gay Rum Factory and the superb Bathesheba on the Atlantic side of the island - the surf is unbelievable!
A great holiday and brilliant to see all around by car.

Stayed at Beach view in May. This is a lovely home from home accommodation. I was more than pleasantly surprised. The homes come with fully fitted kitchen, big lounge and modern bathrooms, plus the nice added bonus of a patio. Our patio led out unto the pool area. Th aere is a baby pool and an adult pool so great for families and couples. The hotel is located across the road from the beach but that did not affect our trip as we still had a lovely view from the hotel hence the name and it is literally a 2 min walk and we were right at the other end of the hotel. The hotel is also located close to Holetown and a short ride to Bridgetown. The ownners also have a cocktail evening which is worth partaking and goin along to just for the share manificance of their house and view. Its a nice social event where you also get the opportunity to meet other guests from the hotel. I would definitely return to this hotel again but prehaps place it in a different country.
