“Very relaxing......”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 13, 2013

We stayed at the Savannah Beach Hotel for three nights before a week long cruise as part of a package with Virgin. We had upgraded our room to a Ocean Suite, but all the rooms looked to be reasonably placed. Our room was on two floors with two balconies, both overlooking the pool and beach. Apart from some minor repairs and redecorating, the room was fine. The first night we ate in Rachel's Restaurant which as it was a Sunday was the only option, it was a buffet which was adequate, but nothing special. However the other two nights it was a la carte, all included in the price, there were some high prices shown on the menu, but we were told these were for locals! The food on these two nights was very good, plenty of choice, not massive portions, but then there was breakfast, lunch and afternoon tea, all good, so no fear of going hungry. The staff were all friendly and helpful. We upgraded to the Club Package which included drinks in our room, this was meant to e restocked on every other day, although this was limited. Thre was also some beer, but nothing to open it with!
Not sure that I would do the Club Package next time, but would certainly come back to this hotel.

We stayed for a week beginning 24th Feb to celebrate our Anniversary, We had an issue with the room in the Plantation House as it faced the road 215 the noise was terrible so we asked to be moved as we could not sleep, the hotel was full but they managed to move us to 207 still noisey but not so bad and then 210 which was in the plantation house but away from the road. If we had been put in room 210 at the start of our holiday we would have been very happy, however we had 3 rooms in a one week holiday. So we would advise do not book a Plantation House room. We must stress however that this problem is due to Virgin not stating in their brochure that the Plantation House rooms face a busy main road (we had asked for a quiet room!)

Now on to the good. Staff were brilliant friendly and helpful and were sorry they could not move us because of being full and sent us sparkling wine to our room each time we moved! The room was kept spotless with clean towels and clean sheets and a comfy bed and we felt the food especially in Rachels in the evening was above the 3.5 rating infact we were very happy with the food during our stay and the location of the hotel loved being able to walk either way down the beach on beautiful white sands . On the Sunday we arrived there was a group Virgo? they were absolutely fabulous and we would have loved to have seen them again. So if you are thinking of booking Savannah we would say it is an amazingly good value all inclusive resort in Barbados nice wine good cocktails and good food for the star rating but up grade to a room away from the Plantation House unless you can sleep with the road noise. Also there is no spa in the resort now.

Room Tip: Plantation house rooms are on a very busy road so upgrade

I stayed at the hotel 25th January to 8th February to be greeted by friendly staff, taken to our Bromwich was a pool access room 123 with huge king size bed .
I celebrated my birthday on 26th January and was given a lovely bottle of champagne which was delivered our room by the duty manager.
We had been given a club upgrade which included mini bar and special area on the beach with padded sun beds. Drinks, fruits and ices were also given by the lovely Jacqueline and dexter who always had a smile. The staff throughout the hotel we always found helpful and could not do enough for you.
The food at Rachel's and Drifters was very good and plentiful.
Evening entertainment was verge good but first shed quite early.
Hired a car for 2 days through the rep, saw the island and some lovely places with beautiful scenery. Also traveled on Regee busses very cheap and 2 bday dollars will take you anywhere.
There were plenty of bars and resteraunts if you were adventure out for a change.
This is out second visit to Barbados but first to savannah beach and would return.
Had a fantastic holiday with some fantastic people.

My husband and I spent two weeks at Savannah Beach in February and had a fantastic time. The management and staff were all so friendly and helpful it was wonderful. It is 'as it says on the tin' a 31/2 - 4 star hotel and that is what you get! Hopefully with all their plans they will get their upgrade as I think they deserve it! Great value for money for all inclusive in Barbados. Will return.

Room Tip: Had a pool access club room which was good and enjoyed the decking in the beach!

He never even stayed at Savannah so how can he possibly comment ??

His contract was with TNT in Boston. Goodness knows who they are, they probably took his money and had no contact with Savannah !

It's a good value hotel. most people enjoy it, the food is good, the staff are lovely, don't criticise when you've never even spent a night there !

My Wife and I booked our vacation at The Savannah in Barbados last July 19th for a one week vacation March 3rd. forty eight hours before we were supposed to leave we were notified by TNT Vacations in Boston that the resort was overbooked and we would need to spend our first two days at another resort that was about 40 miles from the Savannah.
We didn't want to go to the other resort as we looked at it but didn't like the location.
The end result is we had to cancel, we did have insurance but lost the airfare $1150.00, the insurance $198.00, the cab to the airport 108.00 and a $100.00 cancellation fee to TNT, it also cost s $300.00 to cancel the flights with American Airlines.
I've sent several e mails to the Savannah and also to Sandy Wade V.P. of Sky Hotels and Resorts and NOBODY has bothered to return them.
My WIfe and I are both retired and saved an entire year in order to be able to take this trip and losing that kind of money really hurts. BEWARE of corporate greed and book elseware, you know someplace that cares about the customer and not the bottom dollar
