“Great”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 15, 2012

We were unlucky to only have had a few days at the hotel prior to joining our cruise ship. We would happily have stayed there for the full holiday and hopefully we will return in due course. Fabulous room ( 372 ) and friendly helpful staff. Lovely food, lovely people, lovely room. What more can you ask for in a holiday? Very relaxing.

We are returning tomorrow from savannah beach hotel Barbados . We have had a wonderful two weeks. It was my birthday and wedding anniversary and were made to feel so special. The staff are so friendly and unlike the reviews that we read some time ago. The food is delicious, the drifters bar is laden with food lunch and dinner time and Rachel's where you have to book is waitress service and food is lovely. Enjoyed all the breakfasts and plenty of coffee, tea and juices available. Swimming pool meandered through the garden and although 3ft 6 was lovely to swim in. We had large room very clean , loads of towels with 7 foot bed and needed a taxi to find your partner. It felt very personal and the hotel is manageable. Baby turtles hatched and crawled into hotel attracted by the light but that made everyone excited and busy taking them back to the water. We have had a lovely time and a big thank you to everyone who made us so welcome. Would certainly come back as they all work so hard to make it special.

We have just returned home to England after a week at this hotel. We've never previously paid tribute to a hotel and expressed our gratitude for the service we received (frankly, that's as customers we are entitled to get decent facilities and service) - but feel that we really do owe the Savannah Beach a big thanks.
The staff are a real credit to the hotel - apart from being efficient, their frendliness and humour shines through and makes a real difference to the guests' experience. The quality of the accomodation and the food was also beyond our expectations.
We very much hope to return to the Savannah Beach again - our stay really was very special.
TripAdvisor contributors often tend to find the negative wherever they go - we hope that our comments will encourage anyone planning a trip to Barbados to consider the Savannah Beach - as long as they leave some space for us too!

Room Tip: To be honest, just about any of the rooms would be great

We have just returned from a week long break returning November 10th.We stayed in room 370 deluxe pool view.
From the moment we arrived we were delighted.
Our room exceeded our expectations.It was large very clean and was very comfortable.
The balcony was large with a settee and footstool
The view fantastic.
Worth the small additional charge.
Staff could not have been more attentive and we had good service throughout.
Food and drink choice plentiful with something for every taste.We could not fault one meal
Lovely beach walk and the hotel grounds well maintained.
In and around the area perfectly safe with lots to see and do.
Lots of tours available via the Virgin rep.
Would highly recommend the jeep safari and the virgins ahoy sea cruise.
This hotel is a pure gem so happy we selected it we will return for sure.

Room Tip: Pay a little extra for a pool view /sea view room.

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
