“Reasonable hotel in quiet area.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 13, 2012

A little out in the sticks if you are after tourist facilties but there is a public bus service to Bridgetown and taxis could be arranged through recption.
The hotel was clean and comfortable. It was very quiet but that may be because of the time of year. The reception staff were friendly. There was no free wifi available.

The food was reasonable and the service acceptable.

A fairly short walk of say 15 minutes or so, led to the sea with some impressive cliffs and some nice private houses, very 'des. res.'.

The hotel is haused in one of the most beautifull buildings of Barbados.
Located on the wind swept side of Barbados you will discover why the hotel is named "tropical winds'. There is not much trafic on this side of the island. In the morning there are lots of tropical birds in the garden. Friendly and helpfull staff, super rumpunch. Daily happy hour between 18.00 and 19.00. 2 most delicious rumpunches (the best rumpunch we have ever tasted during our trips in the caribbean) for the price of one. The rooms are clean with a well equiped kitchen. Busstop in front of the hotel. Bustickets are cheap. If you have a rental car don't forget GPS to find you way on the island and the back to the hotel. The location of the hotel is ideal if you want to discover the east coast of Barbados.

We spent 2 nights at the Tropical Winds while attending our friends wedding. This hotel is not a high end resort. However, it is clean, quiet, inexpensive and the staff is outstanding. They we very helpful with our needs. If you need a taxi ask for Rafael. He will get you where you need to go safely. He is also available for day tours. The hotel will be able to put you in touch with him. Cutters restaurant nearby is also a must. The food is fresh and flavorful. It's a mix of western and Bajun cuisine and is best for breakfast and lunch. Tropical Winds is close to many East coast beaches. Recommended.

We were three older ladies travelling together the two bedroom apartment was ideal. We loved the cleanliness and the staff could not have been more friendly. It is a little off the beaten track but with a car not far from anywhere. Food was good and freshly cooked though it took quite a long time to arrive-however we were on holiday!
We would definitely go back!

Room Tip: It is an apart hotel so take a few essential supplies!

Sorry to sound negative but my main problem was the wifi that did not work and was a little expensive. I paid for an hour used 15 mins and lost the rest as I did not use it up in a time allotted(no one new how long that was). This happened 3 times. The over seas calls proved a problem you had to go to the lobby and let the receptionist make the call and then put it through to your room. After waiting 10 mins I returned the lobby and she said "sorry I got busy".The tv was not good no sound or 2 poor programmes. Staff very friendly but vague about general info. You need a car as it is out of the way. Basic and needs better management.

Room Tip: Try for a corner room they are larger. The balcony is ok for one person at a time.

I stayed here for two weeks after my vacation stay at The Crane ended to look for investment property on the Island. My husband went home as planned so I having a clean safe place was imperative and this place fit the bill.
It's the little things that matter most sometimes!
The first hot and strong shower I had was at Tropical Winds. The room I had at the Crane had poor water pressure and was luke warm at best. This was a penthouse suite with roof deck and pool in a new building, what's the problem there? I also found the bed much more comfortable!
Very clean, good reasonably priced food, nice pool and great staff. Being alone (after my husband went home at vacations end) it was nice to have friendly helpful people to "come home" to!
My one and only problem was that the WIFI wasn't free and only worked while sitting in the lobby! Rather inconvenient and expensive due to my property search and communications home.
My only complaint, in a place where rum flows like water, I couldn't taste any in the two Pina
Colada's! I was about 3-5 minutes "late" for the 2 for 1 happy hour and paid full price so it was like getting 1 for 2, considering the amount of rum used in making the drinks. It was my first and last time I drank at the bar.
All that aside I would return to Tropical Winds without hesitation especially if they made the Wifi free and made sure it worked in the room, at the pool etc...

Room Tip: Location is key, if you want R&R peace and quiet, this is the place to be!

A little out of the way but, with car rental, able to tour around quite easily exploring nearby beaches and places of interest when didn't want to swim in the pool or relax on the patio. Staff were more than friendly, helpful, pleasant and appeared to enjoy their work of which they did a good job. Would definately return but maybe not in June as found weather too hot and humid.
