The hotel is set on the Atlantic coast and has the most incredible views. Choose an Ocean View room for a vista that is stunning to wake up to. The staff are excellent - attentive when required, but never over-attentive.

Bathsheba is on the East Coast which is rugged and not for swimming but stunningly beautiful. This hotel is on the edge of Bathsheba and has a lovely restaurant where you can sit overlooking the sea. We had fabulous food - go for the fish as it is so fresh. And good wine too. Thank you - to be recommended.

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.

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.

Responded Mar 27, 2022
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

The location is lovely. But for the prices they charge, this hotel represents poor value for money. The staff are all kind, friendly and helpful - I have not criticism of any of them - but the institution itself is shabby and is not delivering service at the level it should. The room I was allocated had barely any view at all, looking out over the rubbish bins and generator which ran for several hours on my second night, depriving me of sleep. There was only one set of towels in the room and they were not replaced even though I left them on the floor, simply hung up again. With only one housekeeper, my room was not refreshed until well into the afternoon. I ordered a vegetarian breakfast which came with lashings of bacon - when I queried this, the waiter hurriedly removed the bacon and gave me back the same plate - where I discovered more bacon. I asked for a fruit plate instead and the hotel attempted to charge me $30 for the privilege. Dinner was adequate but really, at these prices, it needs to be better. The hotel management needs to try much, much harder - and to empower, train and remuneratetheir management and staff to do so, too.

Thanks for taking the time to share your review of your March 3-5 2022 stay. Your reservation was made online at 9:16pm on March 2nd 2022 for arrival at 3pm the following day in a Coastal View Room which was the only suite that was available. As the hotel was fully booked, we are unsure how we could have otherwise accommodated you in a different suite, considering there were no alternatives available for your last minute booking. Your statement regarding rubbish bins being outside the window is untrue. What is however on the outside is two 600 gallon water tanks - the purpose of which is to store water for emergency purposes should there be an outage in the area. Unfortunately, there was a power outage in the area of the hotel on your second night which occurred from 9:02pm to 11:15pm. Although this was well outside of our control, please accept our apologies that our relatively quiet generator deprived you of sleep that night. It is very difficult for anyone to predict when a power outage will occur. The purpose of the generator is to keep the hotel running in the event of a power outage so that our guests are not left in complete darkness. Whilst housekeeping endeavours to service all rooms while guests are at breakfast, some guests leave their DND signs on the door and in some instances these rooms are done later in the morning or early afternoon. Unfortunately as your stay was two nights, it meant that you had housekeeping once as there is no housekeeping service on the day of departure. Regarding breakfast, your order did indeed arrive with bacon which the chef corrected thereafter. You then subsequently ordered a fruit plate after consuming your initial order which there is an additional charge for and which you would have been aware of. As per our breakfast menu, a fruit plate is $20 BBD or $10 USD and not $30 as was stated in your review. Perhaps in the future you will make your reservation a few weeks or months in advance as many of our guests do. This way you will be able to get the Ocean Front option which you desired to have but which ultimately was not available. Best Regards

This is a lovely elegant hotel retaining authentic features after careful restoration. We were comfortable and completely relaxed. The staff were attentive and friendly and went the extra mile - especially Antonio, Orphia and Patricia but all staff were brilliant. Would give it more stars if I could. We will certainly come here again!

We didn't stay at the Atlantis Historic Inn but had a wonderful meal - one of the best we had on the island during our 2 week stay. It was certainly worth venturing to the East Coast to enjoy the food and view. Staff were courteous and friendly.

Bottom line, DO NOT GO to this hotel. I can only speak to the apartments. I would presume the single rooms are adequate. But overall the staff is weird and not able to understand basic concerns. The resort is overall very tired and COVID is NOT the reason why. Ripped screens for mosquitos to enter, broken shutter slats, cracked and tiles missing in shower, grossly stained granite and marble, constant septic smell, soiled bed matts, bubbling paint on exterior. Overall very dirty and not updates for 15 years and the kitchen looks like it is out of Home Depot. Refused to spend our money there and went to the Eco Lodge next door where the staff and food was fantastic

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.

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.

The place is full of history and you can feel it. A great place to be based while exploring the relatively untouched East Coast of Barbados. The rooms are large and nicer than I expected per both pictures and recent negative reviews on expectations. The service is nice, laidback and well intentioned. Our breakfast ordered were mixed up (our side orders of meat with our eggs and toast were put on the wrong plates), but this was no biggie for us, just swap out our meats. The views are fantastic. Try not to miss the sunrise, well worth the early wake up call. Also, try, if available, to book ocean view rooms as these are for sure to be worth it over our partial ocean view suite. Bedding very comfortable and bathrooms quite well appointed! Would recommend this place.
