We were 8 nights here in Barbados and we are delightful with the experience.
It is a small very clean and new hotel in a lovely location. Just take your towel and flipflops and go to the beach in 20 seconds.
Could be a bit noisy because of the cars... nothing about the hotel but depending of your room, you can hear the buses and cars honking all the time.
About the restaurant: I would do the breakfast and lunch as buffet and leave the dinner as fine menu.
The chef is amazing and the food was lovely but you miss some snacks during the day. Also if you have activities planned, allow plenty of time for breakfast/lunch if you want to have it before to go. They can take up to 1h to serve you.
The best part is the stuff, Michelle, Albert, Felix, William.. you are all great! super fun and lovely, veeeery nice people in the restaurant and service room.
They need to think about a covered area for the rainy days/nights and maybe some activities. It is good for a relax holidays but it is too quiet if you want to have some drinks. The bar closes at 11pm and there's nothing to do if it rains.
I am really interested to see if they will do some changes. As an idea, have a TV in the bar area to see futbol matches or music videos :) and get fridges for all the rooms!
About Barbados, we could see turtles, fishes, crabs, all the island around... and a tip: DO NOT take the submarine activity if you were drinking the previous night ;)
I love the flying fish and the macaroni pie <3
