My review is pretty much a repeat of many others: yes, the property is older and needs work, yes the rooms are a little dated, yes the food was not Michelin star gourmet. What it was, was a wonderful 7 day stay with plenty of sun, sea and relaxation!. Our room was clean, bed a tad lumpy but we were...

My husband, adult son and I stayed at Discovery Ba y (DB) May 13-20. We wanted a reasonably priced, clean hotel with good beach and snorkeling. Food is also an issue for us as both my son and husband have chronic GI issues and eating out can be a big problem. I am pleased to report that our stay turned...

A colonial style all inclusive hotel. A bit old school but we liked the charm and everything worked well. Excellent buffet and a la carte on alternate nights. Breakfast not so varied but can be missed with a buffet lunch on the horizon. Many local restaurants within walking distance although pricey. Bar at the hotel excellent with great cocktails and...

We stayed only one night after planning to stay for 3 nights. The room, although we received a complementary ocean front upgrade, was small and very old, with outdated old furniture and uncomfortable bed. The bathroom was outdated as well. The sliding patio door to the small balcony had to be dragged to close and open. This is an all-inclusive...

Where do I start? I have to say, do not read any of the negative reviews about this hotel. I had a perfect stay at Discovery Bay. I was there 5 days as a single traveller. I checked in with ease and was provided a lovely sea view room- I could hear the waves as I slept! The room was...

Having read lots of reviews before booking we knew it was going to be a reasonably basic place to stay, next to the Caribbean sea with snorkelling, and the odd place to visit. Perfect we thought, ticked all our boxes. We stayed for 10 days at the end of April. Checking in was very smooth and we were shown to...

Fairly standard all inclusive hotel in a good location and grounds. As we only wanted a relaxed, warm, and easy holiday after winter chills, ten days here hit the spot for us. Staff were good and easy going. Sure, its not Sandy Lane or another wanabe and it needs a bit tlc but then the prices reflect this. Barbados seems...
