“Unforgettable family holiday”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 12, 2012 via mobile

I'd like to echo all the positive comments previously left. This is a fantastic hotel which is great value for money. Due to the reasonable cost, it's a perfect resort to use as a base. We had family to visit on the island so we didn't want to pay the extortionate prices of the well-known 4/5 star all-inclusive resorts.
Our 2 kids loved the pools all at 3.5ft deep. The variety of beaches surrounding the hotel was also good. My son loved looking for creatures (crabs/starfish/sea urchins/fish) in the water directly outside the hotel bar. We also loved jumping the waves at the beach to the right of the hotel near the Hilton. Copacobana beach is truly breathtaking - crystal clear waters - well worth taking advantage of the free shuttle service to there.
We were lucky to have 2 sets of turtles hatch on our beach - an amazing sight as they all head towards the light of the hotel (instead of to the sea!) On both occasion the hotel guests collected up the babies from the beach & waited for the 'turtle police' to come and release them back into the sea.
The food was faultless. Traditionally Bajan with enough variety that we didn't get bored. The sushi in Chopstix was surprisingly good (although not raw fish).
Also worth pointing out is the evening entertainment which was of superior quality. We saw a 3-piece girl singing group and a 2-piece male band which were both brilliant. We also enjoyed the Calypso & limbo dancers.
As mentioned before the staff are just fab. I'd like to mention Keisha (only 2 weeks into the job) who was so kind to the kids. Antony who made the best Bloody Mary's, Shenay who brought us drinks at the poolside, Edwin, Dexter & Richard in the bar area.
We stayed at Savannah for 2 weeks from 29 October 2012.

We've just got back on the 6th November having spent a perfect week here, other hotels could learn alot from this one as could the staff, both of which were perfect!! It was clean, well kept, the perfect size for a complex, the staff all clearly were proud of where they worked and always seemed like they wanted to be there instead of having to be. We were truly sorry to leave here, and both of us can't wait to go back, everyone was beyond friendly and always made you welcome with a genuine smile, Craig who is the G.M was cooking the BBQ one day, because he wanted to, something that would never happen elsewhere, he should be very proud of his hotel and every single one of the staff. I cannot say enough good things about being here, and would whole heartidly reccommend this place to anyone

Yes, we loved every minute of our two-week stay. The fabulous staff, super comfy beds and furnishings, gorgeous beaches (yes you have two to choose from in the package - don't knock it!), the abundance and choice of good, tasty food, and the beautiful location, not to mention the wild monkeys and turtles! Go and enjoy!

If you only do one trip, make it a catamaran - we went with Cool Runnings and it was a magic five hours for only £60 each; well worth it!

Thanks to all the staff at the Savannah, Copacabana and Cool Runnings. We can't wait to see you again!

The first thing that hits you about this hotel is how clean it it, and the staff are so friendly, which is not alway the case in Barbados. The room we were given on arrival was in the old part of the hotel and it is as described, historic and with character, and again very clean, would have been great for a one night stay but as it did not have a balcony and windows looked out onto the road to one side and the police station on the other it was not ideal for a 10 day holiday so we upgraded to a pool access room which was much cheaper to do with the hotel direct than with Virgin at the time of booking, so my advice would be 'see what you get given and upgrade once you get there.

Food was good, never a night when we could not find something that we liked, service at the bar and restaurants was very good and always with a smile.

While we were there the management had some guys working for 4 days solid removing stones from the beach and shoreline which made the access into the sea a lot less painful

On the hole a great little hotel especially if you can get a deal!

Room Tip: Upgrade rooms when you get there, its cheaper

We're just back from a week here (Oct 20th-27th) and echo most of the reviews we read before we went. Having been taken over a year or so ago, It's still a work in progress and given that is reflected in the price, we had a great time. Eventually it will be an even better experience but at a higher cost! The strength of this place is the staff. Friendly and efficient from the welcome rum punch on arrival, to putting sun beds out on the beach through to drinks service on the beach (thanks Dexter) & good bar/dinner waitresses everyone is a credit to the hotel. There are areas for improvement though. For example, although the food in the a la carte restaurant (Rachels) was excellent we had a very leisurely service. We're used to holidaying in the Caribbean and enjoy a leisurely evening meal, however it was so leisurely you started to look around at who had been served in case they'd forgotten your course (one night they did!). Against this the water & wine top ups while waiting were very efficient so it really just needs a good restaurant manager to keep an eye on things and intervene before people get frustrated. The other, buffet style restaurant (Drifters) also has a good choice of food, and efficient drinks service so with a few tweaks the overall dining experience would be very good. The rooms are also fine. It's a small hotel so nowhere is too far. As previous reviews have said they could be improved (for example the bathrooms were unusually dark) but nothing major to make these very good as well. Onto the beach. Having read the reviews I was surprised how good it was. The area on the right of the hotel offered beds in the sun all day while there was plenty of shade to the left. Yes, the sea is rocky but I believe the hotel are looking to address this (& the beaches either side of the hotel are picture perfect) Do get out and explore, you can walk miles (especially left out of the hotel along the great new boardwalk where we got to release baby turtles into the sea) Finally, the drinks were good but could be improved by having the fab Mount Gay rum available on the all inclusive package. All small things but together would turn this from good to great. Go & enjoy :)

We stayed at the Savannah for 10 nights. It's my second time to Barbados but my partners and daughters first.
Hotel was spotless , and the food was tasty but that depends on what type of food your into I enjoyed it partner not so much. We stayed in room 328 sea view absolutely huge for just 3 people, and spotlessly clean everyday . Staff were wonderful especially Dexter who brings drinks out to you on the beach, but all staff very helpfull . Our daughter met a little friend while we were out there called Lilly and it was fascinating to watch them looking for the sea turtles in early afternoon .
Beach is quite sweet really and the shade certainly a must it was so hot.
This goes out to anyone who does just go out for a holiday please try and get out and sea the island it just has so much to offer and Oistins on a Friday is absolutely heaving Saturday's not so much.
What ever happens chill and enjoy. We stayed from the 18th of Oct to the 28th of Oct.
We shall return one day.

Thank you Savannah Thank you Barbados

Room Tip: Room 328 quite with a beautiful view .
