Due to the Covid-19 pandemic, we choose this hotel to quarantine in as it was advertised as an all-inclusive hotel and it would be perfect for a couple of nights until we got our 2nd negative test results. Well, all I can say the staff was very friendly and tried hard to make a bad situation better. I can not say bad word against them. The hotel is not an all-inclusive hotel at all it is a budget Bed and breakfast/room only hotel. We had booked for all-inclusive and got room only. Once arrival in our room, it became very clear this was the case. We had no mini bar, no tea/coffee and no water. But I must say we had a kettle and 2 cups that was full of dust. When I tried to complain to the owner, he could only say I was breaking the quarantine rules and I would be arrested. After I informed him to send police, prime minister, health minister and immigration to the hotel as I wish to speak to them as he would not answer any of my question regarding what he has in place for us as we had paid for an all-inclusive stay. I would say this hotel should be avoided as this man is only interested in getting rich and not about his customers.

Dear Guest, We are disappointed but not surprised to see this review. It seems that the sincere apology that you gave to myself, my management and my staff for your unacceptable behavior, that put all of us at risk, wasn't sincere at all. The COVID19 protocols of Barbados stated that guests MUST remain in the their guest room during quarantine. Yet you insisted on coming down to the front desk to interact with my staff. I remained on the phone with you while you complained profusely and loudly about COVID19 measures that are out of the hotel's control. As I said to you then; Sunbay Hotel is not an all inclusive hotel, you paid for and received room and breakfast. If you were misled by a tour operator or travel agent then you should take it up with them. Regards

Staff was overall unfriendly, non-accommodating and unsupportive. I will never stay here again. Restaurant service was horrible. I was told to move from the bar while eating a slice of pizza even tho there were no customers. Room service was the only thing that was done right consistently.

Room Tip: Rooms were ok but terribly overpriced. This room should never exceed $75 US per night and that’s...

Dear hmarcell, I'm sorry to hear that you did not enjoy your stay with us. I happen to know for a fact that the staff at Sunbay Hotel are extremely supportive and accommodating. Along with those great attributes. they also have to politely enforce rules from time to time. For obvious reasons we do not allow food obtained from outside of our establishment to be consumed in our restaurant or at our bar. If the enforcement of this policy has offended you and caused your entire stay with us to be ruined we are sorry. However, this is a policy enforced by many many hotels locally and around the world. We understand the underlying difference between when a big branded hotel enforces a policy and when a small independent hotel enforces the same policy; this is the nature of things. We will continue to follow best practices and enforce policies designed to protect guests, staff and company alike. Regards.

The room was clean and ok, we believed the hotel was on the beach, it was the other side of a minor road, to get to the beach was a 10 min walk. The breakfast was awful we chose from a grubby old plastic coated menu. The pool was nice and clean but there were no towels unless you bought one for 15$ The reception staff were rude and couldn’t care less about anything else but their appearance. One day a gentleman was behind reception but he was too busy eating a basket meal under the counter than find out when our delayed airport shuttle would arrive.there was a mature lady on the activities desk in the foyer and she was helpful and kind.I guess once upon a time it was a decent hotel but now it’s tired and needs refurbishing and the staff badly need training..

Room Tip: Maybe a poolside room as we had a partial sea view room but the internet didn’t get a signal.

On Arrival to Barbados, my transfer to Sunbay from Airport was good lovely driver. On arrival the Receptionists had very poor customer service skills throughout our stay. Overall the best receptionist was the elderly male he was very friendly and willing to help professional customer service and very efficient no problem . The Tour Guide lady is very good and highly i recommend her . The catering staff are all so amazing especially Chef Jonathon & two Young female Chefs the passion shows great food. Front of house staff are all very amazing & friendly . Desiree my favourite and the lovely lady who organised my Valentines meal thank you.I loved the bar staff they are all a pleasure to be around .rooms were cleaned very well everyday thank you My partner and i would love to come back. Great location to stay thanks Sunbay .

Th Sunbay Hotel is in a good location in Maxwell, close enough to the main road for public transport and far enough from it to be quiet. Spacious rooms and bathrooms. TV has many channels, safe can be rented cheaply. Fridge and kettle available. Nice private balcony looking over atmospheric courtyard with palm trees, pool and sunbeds. The hotel is close to Oistins, and Maxwell itself has some of the best swimming conditions and sea temperature in the south of the island.
