“Spend the extra $ and go somewhere else”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed February 12, 2013

I stayed at the HBH for a month and I would recommend paying a little more and going somewhere else! The hotel room was musty and the bathroom smelled like I had my face in a dirty urinal...it was nauseating actually. I was greeted by several cockroaches during my night time restroom visit. Horrible water pressure and alternating scalding/freezing water made for an interesting showering experience:) I wore sandals around the room...If you want to relax and not feel disgusting in your hotel room then stay somewhere else.

extremely noisy air conditioner, water in shower would not close and ran for hours, phone did not work-no oter roomns available and I was told handyman went home and it was too late
( i truly wonder how does such a miserable stay in business?) you think I would eb offered a free drink or voucher for future or something or whatever - front desk tried to be helpful
Lobby was depressing with half of the lights not working
Pool and outdoor space is decent and gym will do

Room Tip: stay only if this is the only room left on teh ISland on a dark a nd stormy night

The hotel has everything you would need for a nice stay on the island, it's clean, safe, nicely located and has a good beach.
HOWEVER...
It's also true that the place has seen better days, the carpets in the corridors are dingy to say the least, it needs more care... the staff were ok... not overly attentive, sometimes even lazy but were never rude or impolite. The beach need to be cleaned... too many cigarrette butts all over the place, it's a smokers paradise!!!!... the breakfast buffet was ridiculously over priced but the rest of the meals were a good price/quality deal.
All in all... i enjoyed it but i wouldn't repeat it just yet....

Room Tip: make SURE to book a non-smoking room... yes, they still have that option....

Due to circumstance beyond control, spent the last week at this hotel. Similar to a "Holiday Inn" but not the same. All rooms access the center Activity area, witch is breezy and pleasant with a large pool and plenty of tables and seating area to socialize and have a drink with friends. But if you want the the beach and the beautiful Caribbean less than a 20 second walk to that beach. The staff was very friendly and helpful. They can arrange just about everything for you. The casino is not like a "Vegas" casino, more like an "internet" casino..but still fun.

Room Tip: When using a cab..ask the person who called the cab, "What is the fair and average fare for goi...

The hotel is oké, doubleroom was clean and comfortable, surroundings were kept very clean, nice pool and quiet beach.
Breakfast could be much better and was expensive, as internet !

He had to pay 100 dollars for a room wich had no fridge or sitting area..

Hi . Recently in september I stayed at Holiday Beach HOTEL & CASINO. And it was very well. We checked in the 30th of september and it was between 15:00-16:30. The lady that checked us in, was very unhelpfull. In fact she really even looked to us. I asked her for a room with a nice vieuw, and she answer me what I have i can give you...so I think thats not the way to give an answer even if you do not have rooms available at that moment.
Well I don't know if all the standard rooms all the same but the room where we stayed in, the furniture overall is very old, but as well good mantained.The aircontioning is really good, the room was cool enough during our stay there. The housekeeping staff is very kind so far we treated them.

We had a good time and a clean room with nice view to brach and sea. Staff was nice, close to the city. Nice beach, so we think it is good value for money. Despite all the criticism on this site, we had a nice stay at this hotel.
