“wedding vow renewal for silver anniversary”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 14, 2012

We have just returned from a wonderful 2 weeks ( 29Oct-12Nov) and we are already saving to go back. We renewed our vows on the beautiful Foul Beach with the help of Clickwedbabados and LeslieStJohn doing the photos. Wonderful setting and the photos are great. We had an upgrade to a room overlooking the pool and the sea every breakfast was spent feeding the birds and my husband trying to get a photo of the resisdent humming bird. Awesome. The most noise was the whistleing frogs that you could hear but not see.

We went on the cool running catamaran, had a wonderful time swiming with the turtles, looking where the other half holiday (Sandy Lane) our beach much nicer. We then hired a car for 3 days and tied to get lost. You cant get lost on the island you just dont always end up where you intended!! We saw he wild life, we saw the orchids, the caves and all the beautiful green country.

The hotel was wonderfully convienient for everything. We were self-catering,which meant we could do as we pleased. Lovely fish in Oistins, best Sunday dinner at Charlies and for something a little special Cafe Luna. Breakfast on the balcony listening to the changing sound of the waves
.
The staff worked in Bajan time (slow!!) But we had a glass of fizz after our
ceremony and Deb in the shop was great for booking trips etc.
We used the little tootoot buses by day ,a squash but an experience not to be missed. The pavements with give health and saftey a nightmare so watch wher ur walking.

WE loved it all and cant wait to go back. Great place, people,weather and new friends.

We had a great stay at the Butterfly beach Hotel. Great location at a reasonable price. Some areas looking a bit tired , but, lets face it, How much time do you really spend in the room ? Most of it you have your eyes closed sleeping.You could pay big money for some flash looking place and not neccisarilly be much better off. All the staff were great , very friendly and helpfull, except one (Lynnette) . We think she is probably the most misserable person we encountered on our whole stay on the Island (no job satisfation there), no smile, abrupt when asked something and just walked away when you approached the bar. The Location is right on the beach and the water is crystal clear and nice and warm with sandy beach areas to the right and left. The pool is just a square pool, but does shape really matter ? It's cool and refreshing when it' really needed. The Reggie buses are a fun cheap way to get up and down the coast and you won't have to wait long for one to come along. Rent a car if you want to see the real barbados and find some other really nice beaches. We spent a day on Foul Bay Beach and we were the only ones there. True Paradise. The locals everywhere are friendly and will help you with directions should you need it. Oistins fish fry on a friday night is a must. Pats Place is one of the bigger ones along the road by the stage area. Your served on a picnic table with paper plates and plastic cutlery. But this was one of the best meals we had and went back three times. the Flying fish is fantastic accompanied with Macaroni pie and a Banks beer, Mmmmm. Great atmophere. Loads of nice places to eat up and down the coast. We took the Cool Runnings catamaran boat trip. We've been on loads of boat trips over the years and this has got to be The or one of the best trips we've been on. Great food and loads of drink, Really nice new looking boats and the crew were fantastic, they couldn't be more helpfull, always topping up your drinks and helping wherever they could with snorkle gear or taking pictures for you. One got in the water when we swam with the turtles. What an experiance that was. They also took us to a ship wreck that was fairly shallow so you could see even when snorkleing. Then they took us to Sandy Lane beach and we had our lunch and you could swim ashore and walk along the beach where the rich and famous stay. Cheapest room $1500 U.S. per night. All this with good tunes playing and a great atmophere. Great trip. All the people we encountered on our stay were repeat visiters to the island or the hotel as we probably will be too. Take some ear plugs to block out the crickets and churping frogs at night . I thought this was going to be a problem sleeping but after the first night or so you hardly notice them. I 100% recommend this place.

Room Tip: Try to get a room away from the road, it can be a bit noisey.

We have been to the island a number of times now and have stayed in different hotels each time. For a 3 star this is a little gem.
You will find that all the 3 stars hotels in Barbados are a little rough around the edges, which in no way detracts from the pleasure and are generally to the same standard decor in the rooms, but not all have the position you find with this one.
It is positioned right on the beach with fantastic views around the bay and out to sea, which for the same views/postion on the west coast, you would pay a premium.
The rooms are basic and cleaned daily but have a bed, TV, bathroom and balcony and as you are staying on a beautiful island, that is all you need for the short time you spend in your room.
A fan and air con are supplied at no extra cost
As has been mentioned by others it also has free Wi-Fi and free use of a computer.
The staff were friendly but did have that resigned look most of us have when going through the motions each day.
There is a swimming pool and 3 jacuzzis which coupled with the beautiful beach and sea next to them make this pretty idyllic. This is also where the restaurant/bar is located.
We found the food to be fine although limited. Beacuse of that, I don't think all inclusive is the way to go if staying here and also there are a variety of restaurants and nightlife available at The Gap and Oistins very close by.
It is on a very busy main road so if you have small children be careful but other than that we found it be be very well worthwhile for the price.

We stayed at this hotel for the majority of our stay in Barbados. It's not fancy, but it has a lot of charm. The front desk staff was a little hit-or-miss in terms of friendliness, but they were helpful nonetheless, and being greeted with a delicious glass of fruit juice upon checking in was a wonderful perk. Their concierge, Marie, was fantastic and helped us line up a car rental and a catamaran tour, and gave us plenty of great advice about the Oistins fish fry and things to check out around the island.

Their beach was small, but lovely; it's shared with another hotel, and unfortunately closed at night, but the way the tide came in that seemed to be a sensible precaution. The breakfasts were hearty (not healthy, but very tasty), and the night we ate at the hotel was a nicely bountiful BBQ buffet with steel drum entertainment - good times.

The only thing that keeps us from giving the hotel an excellent is the room - it was generally fine, but the bathroom and shower were very small, and the king bed was two twins put together. The bed and pillows were just not very comfortable, moreover. That said, the full length mirror on the closet was a plus, along with the free internet in the lobby, and the easy access to a main road. Taken in full, a very solid hotel, well worth the cost.

Hotel was brillilant, the staff were really friendly and perfect location. My husband lost our money as soon as we checked in and thankfully the lady from gift shop found it and returned it to us which was very honest of her. The reef bar was quite pricey, but convienient. The reggae were alot of fun and cheap however they do try and cram you in. Beach was right next to the hotel which was perfect! Overall a great hotel! :-)

93 rooms old hotel, we got what we paid for. Hotel on busy street witch is noisy, they put us up at the road but changed In a hurry. The pool was adequate and the towel game going on.
We paid for the breakfast option and it was just okey hardly any fresh fruit or healthy options.
We had a kitchenette which helped with lunches. King bed was nice, old tv's but free WiFi in
Lobby. Beach and water amazing. Good value on a budget.
Lots of near by restaurants and grocery store. Oistins Fish on Friday night a must and cheap.
The regae buses for two bucks a person a good way to get around.
Stayed October 31 to November 7

Room Tip: Ask for near the back of the hotel or the middle

Yes lovely little hotel right on the beach. Rooms were fine cleaned daily and fresh towels. Some of the staff could have been a bit more happy to serve you but the manageress came out a few evenings and asked if we were having a good holiday which was a nice touch. Loved the experience of the reggae bus such fun. A must if you go is to go on a tour of the island with Dave's tours a great day out.
