Within walking distance to many many restaurants - all reasonable price, but if you want a "nice" restaurant, take a taxi to one of the mega resorts. I woudl go back here for the... More

The rooms 203/4 appear to have been refurbished and are larger than I expected. Daily maid service is excellent always unobtrusive, with clean... More

Our stay 7 day was nice at this hotel. Older facility but great location on the island, quiet with many local bars and restaurants close by. The Bar/Restaurant was under renovation of the floor surface so did not use but one evening for drinks. The house keeping was slow and not until very late in the afternoon. Otherwise you cant...

We have stayed here several times. It is one of the best run hotels in Barbados - also located on a beautiful beach. Good facilities, great staff and good food at reasonable prices. You won't be disappointed!

Stayed here for our Honeymoon and enjoyed it very much. We had a garden/ocean view room including balcony. What a great view and the room was perfect too! Great food, swimming pool and a pearl white beach at the doorstep made it a very pleasant stay. The hotel let you borrow snorkling stuff, body boards etc to enjoy the sea.... More

Had a wonderful time at this comfortable, friendly hotel. Loved the location on Dover Beach where you could swim with the turtles and watch them nesting at night. Right on St Lawrence Gap with a good choice of restaurants. Very relaxed atmosphere around the hotel and amazing cocktails. It is an older hotel so some of the grounds a little... More
