We are regular visitors to Barbados & have been coming for 33 years. We’ve stayed in several of the west coast hotels & rented beach villas. We were impressed by the hotel. It’s very small, 35 rooms but our 2 rooms were located on the ground floor on either side of the swimming pool and each had a bedroom, sitting room, bathroom & patio. There are flat screen TVs in the bedrooms & sitting rooms. The beds were very comfortable & the rooms clean & well provided. I notice that other reviewers have mentioned the late servicing of rooms - which is true & which needs to be attended to by the management. Breakfast each day was excellent, especially the blueberry pancakes. The coffee is great. The hotel staff were well trained, eager to please, young & friendly. The hotel is located on the southern end of a busy beach & has a very good sea swimming area. Long beach walks can be taken north past Sandy Lane hotel towards Holetown or south to the fish shop at Payne’s Bay. We hope to visit Treasure Beach again soon.

My Aunt and I had originally booked to stay here for four days and after that we would be joining a cruise. Unfortunately, the cruise was cancelled but this fabulously run hotel managed to extend our stay for a week, I am so glad we did, Treasure Beach is most certainly one of the most beautiful, well kept resorts I have had the pleasure of staying at. All staff attentive and friendly, bending over backwards to make your stay a very pleasant experience. A special shout out to Ian, server and bar tender extraordinaire. His impressive skills at making you feel special and welcome are superb. Lisa the manager also, a warm smile and friendly persona, willing to go above and beyond. I can not in fact, fault any of the staff at this gorgeous boutique hotel. If you are looking for a little bit of paradise with good food and excellent service then look no further. I have every intention of returning. Thank you for a fabulous stay creating a beautiful memory to treasure.

Treasure Beach may not be quite the most expensive Hotel but for us and our fellow guests at has a very strong claim to be the best on the West Coast (which means the best on the Island). It is relatively small, for adults only and the service is superb. The people looking after us really cared about getting things right. Moreover this is NOT an all inclusive Hotel, although it can be that if you want and the Tapestry Restaurant has one of the most decorated chefs on the Island. We ate there several times but, of course, one of the joys is sampling the eateries adjacent to the Hotel and (via the Reggae Bus) in Holetown. By doing this your are making a broader contribution to the local economy and enjoying a spectacular range of food and attractive venues. Prices vary significantly but what you get everywhere is the warm Bajan welcome. Highly recommended! We shall return.

Couldn't ask for a better hotel and location in Barbados. Small, adult only, boutique-feel hotel located on a beautiful Paynes Bay beach. V. friendly staff and service provided, tasty breakfasts included, clean rooms. Due to the fact it's a small hotel, you don't need to fight or "reserve" sunbeds early in the mornings :) Only thing that could be improved - quality of drinks served at the bar... they were just meh... but still 5* property

We stayed at Treasure Beach to celebrate my wife’s 50th birthday. Our room was a sea view suite with a pleasant view over the pool towards the beach. We chose this hotel because of its intimate, boutique nature and its location on the beautiful Paynes Bay beach. It didn’t disappoint. We stayed on a half board basis and enjoyed some absolutely delicious food in the Tapestry restaurant. The staff were very welcoming and attentive. In fact, everyone we met on the island was so warm and friendly. We did, however, experience the craziness of the sunbed reserving fiasco as mentioned by other guests. This does need addressing. I was also a little disappointed that the hotel didn’t acknowledge my wife’s special birthday despite promises from the front desk. These minor points did not, however, spoil what was an amazing holiday to a truly beautiful part of the world.
