Stayed at the Bougainvillea for 7 nights over Christmas week. Gorgeous beach!! The staff was courteous and friendly. The resort was clean, felt safe and the rooms were comfortable. Two comments however: the adult pool swim up bar was regularly filled with kids and made it impossible for adults (in the adult only pool!) to swim up and have a drink. And, Lanterns Restaurant needs serious help -- the food was good but the service was truly horrible! In a half empty restaurant, it should not take 30 minutes to get a check; tables farthest from the kitchen got the worst service bc wait staff was intercepted by tables they passed first; they took " island time" and slowed it to a crawl! Make note before you go: Barbados, including restaurants at this resort, is very expensive! I've been to many caribbean islands and this was by far the priciest.
And last, although we do not have children, it was magical to see the dancers and Santa come up the beach on Christmas morning!!
