I spent 3 days in quarantine with a stunning view of the Atlantic Ocean directly from my bed. Javon kindly stocked the room with some groceries and let me know where I could order food for takeout because the restaurant had not yet reopened.

The town of Bathsheba and the Andromeda Botanic Gardens were both easy walks away (once I had cleared the 2nd COVID test).

We generally stay on the more popular West Coast of Barbados, but booked 3 nights at Atlantis on the East Coast and strongly recommend it for anybody wishing to see a very different Barbados.

We had a two bedroom cottage which sits right on the sea front, being the East Coast the waves are bigger, and winds stronger, so plenty of salt in the air. Probably not for light sleepers, especially as we also had birds tweeting outside our bedroom window for two of the three nights.

The facilities are good for a three star hotel, and the staff very friendly, helpful and efficient. We had a takeaway delivered the first night, facilitated by the hotel, as the Restaurant is only open a few evenings presently, eat in the restaurant one of the evenings and at their ‘sister’ establishment,, The Fish Pot, on the last evening. All experiences were excellent as was breakfast which, whilst a limited choice, were all prepared to order.

Certainly recommended for a different perspective of Barbados. Recommend you have a car although there are some good coastal walks in the area.

We usually stay on the west or south coasts of Barbados but this time we opted for the east coast....and glad we did. Such a different and amazing experience. The Atlantis Historic Inn offered a refuge away from the traffic, hustle and bustle of the west coast. We booked very last minute so did not have an ocean view but the room was great and very quiet (except for the ocean breakers). The staff, meals and location all perfect, which is not something I say lightly.

You need to be aware that it is definitely "out of the way" so if you want to visit the west coast or other attractions on island it would be best to have a rental car.

We would definitely stay here again and most definitely visit for dinner or lunch as the food is exceptional.

Huge room with fabulous ocean view (if you want a quiet night, don’t opt for the ocean front rooms!). Nice shower, good aircon, plenty of storage, bed was massive although mattress was quite firm.
However we found the dining options baffling. Having to order your breakfast the night before room a quite limited set of choices seemed more in keeping with a budget chain hotel than an independent family run hotel.
But the biggest issue was lunch/dinner. Only one menu to cover both meals, and latest time for dinner was 7pm. Given we never eat before 7.30-8.00pm this was quite a shock. We then discovered that the restaurant was closed on Sunday, and were advised that most people plated up food from the lunch buffet and reheated it in the guest kitchen. We did, but the notices in this kitchen asking us to wash up after ourselves made it feel more like a youth hostel in Derbyshire than a $$ hotel.
And finally, other than for our pre-ordered breakfast, the restaurant is completely closed on Tuesdays so we had to move our taxi pickup to take us to the airport earlier in order to get some lunch!
We had hoped for some pleasant evenings after such an early dinner time in the nice bar area with fellow guests and a drink or two, but the other guests disappeared back to their rooms immediately after eating so that was pretty disappointing.
Reception didn’t seem keen to suggest any local dining,options, although a walk revealed there weren’t any without transport so a taxi would have been needed, but apparently most places around there are closed on Sunday and Tuesday so we’d have had to go some way anyway . Nor did they suggest they could arrange transport for dining elsewhere when the restaurant was closed.
I don’t know if this is all Covid related but in the hundreds of hotels we have stayed in over the years, this was certainly the most peculiar in terms of its dining options especially given its remote setting - clearly that setting is much of its charm/appeal, but it needs to be able to cater for its guests or they risk, like us, feeling trapped.
As my husband said, a cemetery had more atmosphere than the Atlantis after 8pm.
It’s a real shame as it has the potential to be a glorious hideaway of a hotel.

Response from Atlantis Historic Inn, General Manager at Atlantis Historic Inn
Responded Feb 8, 2022
Thank you for taking the time out to tell us about your experience at the Atlantis Historic Inn. Please allow me to apologise that not all aspects of your expectations were met. At the Atlantis, we strive to provide a superior service and your feedback is very important. We are sincerely sorry that you have found our breakfast and our all day dining menu options limited. These menus along with the opening hours of our restaurant have been on our website for several months. COVID-19 has changed the way we operate and instead of having a separate dinner service with a limited menu, we offer all day dining with a far more extensive menu. Bathsheba is not a part of Barbados where restaurants and bars are open late in the evening and all restaurants in the area are normally closed by 8pm or so. We appreciate your feedback, and I hope you will give us the opportunity to welcome you back to the Atlantis Historic Inn in the future.

Let me first say we really enjoyed this hotel. It's on a beautiful site overlooking Atlantic waves crashing onto rocks, quite the change from the west coast's beaches. The room we had was lovely, clean, not 'tired' or any of that, and the bed was huge and comfortable. The pool was very nice and the staff are friendly and helpful.

But you have to go in accepting that the restaurant will be closed for about half of the week (we did know, so this is for information, not a complaint). On three days of the week, the restaurant is open for 'all day dining', but even on these days, you're looking at about 7pm for the latest you can be seated (we were told the last sitting was 6pm, but people were coming in after that). On three other days of the week the restaurant closes for the day at about 3.30pm (still called 'all day dining', somehow). And on Tuesday the restaurant is shut completely. (Note, it's open for breakfast every day.)

On the three days it's closed for dinner, and all day on Tuesday, you can order from a more limited menu; food is cooked by a different restaurant and delivered to Atlantis in plastic containers (it takes about an hour and a half after you order for it to arrive). That sounds a bit rough, but the one time we did this the food was actually very nice so it's a decent replacement service. You can eat the delivered food where you want I think - we had ours in our room but there's a pleasant lounge you can sit in too.

This is important as there aren't many other options nearby given this is a quiet part of the island (lunch in the Sea View Bar up the hill was pretty good though). As is the way with the whole of Barbados, they seem incapable of putting up a simple sign to explain any of this, so the staff constantly have to explain this curious arrangement to visitors and guests alike. I expect they do it to give the staff time off, which is obviously fair enough, but the lack of information is a bit daft. Seriously Atlantis, just laminate a sign and put it on the counter at reception whenever the restaurant's shut, it's really not hard and it'll surely reduce awkward conversations.

But, provided you visit knowing all this about the restaurant, you're likely to enjoy Atlantis greatly if our experience is anything to go by.

Thank you for sharing this review of your recent holiday experience with us! We’re delighted that you had a lovely time in Barbados and with us at the Atlantis Historic Inn. Thank you for particularly highlighting the condition of your One Bedroom Ocean Front Suite! I also join you in commending our truly wonderful and courteous team, who always go the extra mile to ensure that you have a splendid holiday! Regarding the restaurant, Bathsheba has not recovered from COVID-19 as yet, so no restaurants in the area are open daily. We maintain breakfast service seven days a week. Lunch service is six days a week (closed Tuesday) and dinner service four evenings a week (Mon, Wed, Fri and Sat). The bar is open all day on Tuesdays, but no food is available after breakfast. We encourage our guests to visit Eco Lodge, Dina’s, Uncle Joes, Zaccio’s and Roundhouse which are all nearby and all provide great food and drinks. In addition to this, the room service delivery menu is suitable for those who don’t have a rental car and would prefer to stay in. Prior to COVID-19, we were the only restaurant in the area open seven days a week breakfast, lunch and dinner. But alas, much has changed. I thank you for making us your hotel of choice and definitely look forward to welcoming you back once more, in the not so distant future! Best Regards

We went to lunch here two weeks ago. The food was great and the scenery was drop dead gorgeous. A sign on the wall dared us to be spontaneous and spend a night. So we did, two weeks later on New Year's Eve. We were lucky enough to get the 3 Boys Oceanfront Suite . Large clean room well appointed with a King size comfortable bed. Refrigerator in room and tolietries. Wifi was excellent. We had issues with the tv but didn't want to spend time doing that anyway. Fell asleep and woke up to the sounds of the ocean. Not advisable to swim here due to strong ocean currents but we enjoyed the pool. Atlantis is located on the East Coast which remains untouched by the "sophistication" of the West Coast. Hurray!! So not for the people in search of excitement and bright lights. Quiet getaway with stunning views and excellent food. The food would require another review but Kudos to Chef St John and his team. Kudos to Assistant Manager Millar for making us feel so welcome and to the lovely Shamarriah who looked after us at dinner, breakfast & lunch.

We stayed at the hotel for a week in January 2023 and couldn't have been more pleased that we had chosen it. Our room was large, well-equipped and with a stunning view of the sea. The staff were all very friendly and helpful and the food in the restaurant was first class.

The location is also perfect for long walks on the beach both at Bathsheba and along to Cattlewash - and the pool means that you can have a swim too.

If you go, also make sure to visit the Andromeda garden that's a short walk up the hill. It a lovely peaceful spot with amazing tropical vegetation.

What a wonderful place, truly magical, came 20 years ago when it was in sad repair, popped in for a coffee, no guests gentleman showed me around it was in much need of TLC .
So it was s trip down memory lane.
It had been beautifully, sympathetically restored to its original glory.
Had an ocean view, room was wonderful to go to sleep with windows open and a gentle breeze cooling you as you listen to the waves crashing.

I had a pleasant stay at this establishment that is located on the island’s country side of Bathsheba. The staff were professional and respectful. The ocean views were beautiful and the restaurant’s food selection was good.

I would recommend if you’re looking for a peaceful place away from the city as it is roughly 30+ minutes away by vehicle.
During my stay I used their transport service which was reliable but slightly expensive (I would suggest renting a car as it may be cheaper).

There’s not much variety of restaurants in the area as well, the limited choices I tried to check out were not serving food past 4pm . Lovely stay, would definitely recommend.

For people looking to get away from the crowds while getting great service and great food with amazing ocean views, Atlantis Historic Hotel is the spot. As it is such a small inn, the staff knew us by name, knew our favourite table in the restaurant and even our food and drink preferences. The buffet is not to be missed! Easy scenic walk to beautiful Bathsheba Beach to watch the surfers and enjoy a long walk on the sand. Andromeda Gardens is also an easy walk, a lovely destination, and well worth the visit. We will certainly return to this very special spot.

Hi - I think the Sunday buffet has resumed. Do you still have a live band and how much is it now?

Hi There are a couple of places to swim on the east coast. Bath beach or Martins Bay or perhaps the rock pools in Bathsheba. Having said that, one must be very cautious about swimming on the east coast . The Atlantis is about 40 minutes drive from Bridgetown and St James dependent on traffic and of course not getting lost😄
