“Lovely location.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 16, 2013

We have just returned from a 14 night all inclusive stay at the Amaryllis. Having read the reviews on tripadvisor, we were quite worried as to what we might find. However we had a lovely holiday at this hotel. The rooms are basic but clean and ours certaInly had everything we needed including a very efficient shower and, for me, the all important kettle and fridge! At this location, on a beautiful beach, you don't spend much time in your room anyway. All the staff were friendly and always helpful especially those in the restaurant. We enjoyed all the meals, the breakfast omelettes and lunchtime steak fish burgers were particularly good. I don't think those reviewers who are so negative are taking into account the fact that they are paying 3 star prices for this beautifully located hotel.

Room Tip: Ocean view rooms are larger than garden view rooms.

we enjoy stay in our ocean view room. All the staff were very friendly except those from the convenient store and its always closed, even the managers except the one from the front desk who thinks he is God gift to women. The food in the restaurant is great especially on tuesday and saturday night when they is entertainment. The hotel needs work to be done but who cares we were there on holiday not to stay in the room and criticize.

Room Tip: Higher floor to see the ocean first thing in the morning. Don't lesson to the negative people go...

We have just returned from our 10 night all inclusive stay at the Amaryllis Beach Resort. We were somewhat concerned at the negative views some people have posted on tripadvisor, however, we found the following...This is a great place to stay, the rooms were clean and comfortable, ALL the staff were very friendly and helpful. The beach is probably one of the best on Barbados. The all inclusive package was breakfast, lunch and dinner. The dinner was alternate buffet and al a carte, except for Saturdays which was a bbq cook off, the bbq food was excellent with a choice of bbq steak or fish. We have visited Bardados many times in recent years and have found that the Amaryllis Beach Resort is one of the best places to stay and good value for money even considering the weak GBP to USD. I would not hestiate to recommend this hotel and we will be returning to the Amaryllis Beach Resort with our entire family in October 2013.

Lovely food, great staff and great location, got the local airport bus back to the airport as it is far cheaper than getting a taxi. Easy to use the buses. Great area for going out and you can walk to some of the restaurants. Love the location right on the beach. Hotel allow you to use their PCs and printers for your boarding passes etc. They also have an internet room. Would love to stay there again.

Room Tip: I can't remember my room number, but it had a double seating area, one at the front and one at t...

We enjoyed our stay here very much, the location was convenient for our excursions and we felt very safe on the property. All the staff that we encountered were very friendly and the various managers on duty were so helpful! They assisted with taxis, dinner reservations and booking excursions. The hotel is in need of updating in places, but is very clean and well-maintained, the pool is exceptional. We loved our ocean view room, it was very spacious. The beach area was really lovely, and it's close to the boardwalk, nice for an afternoon or morning stroll. We did find that the breakfast at the hotel restaurant was expensive. We didn't eat dinner there, but we loved 39 Steps, and had great lunches at the Coffee Bean. I loved that it was walking distance to the racetrack, we went to see the horses workout and even saw them swim in the ocean on Carlisle Bay! A great holiday experience, would stay here again.

Room Tip: If you've booked an ocean view room, be aware that the ones overlooking the jacuzzi area will he...

-lovely hotel, great beach in front & down to earth people / scandinavian families stay here generally as the owner is swedish
-breakfast & dinner not amazing ..they still need to work on that
-staff are lovely if you are polite to them, and tend to keep to themselves
-its our 5th time back..if your looking for a nice place then this is it..if your looking for a 4 - 5 star experience then this is def not it as it is a 3-4 star as all rooms need updating
-quiet at night except there can be random local passers by on the beach front
-beware major mosquito problem on the ground floor properties ..my kids got mauled by them..hopefully owner will read this & do something about it!shame as its the only real fault that might make me go elsewhere next time
