One great thing about Barbados is that there is such a wide variety of restaurants, and guests staying at all-inclusive resorts do venture out to the different restaurants on island because they know there is such a variety here. You can get everything from local Barbadian cuisine to Brazilian Churrasco.

It is a go, actually. Done deal, as they say. Barbados is now up on the Couples Web site, and the property is scheduled to open on June 15th (not June 1st any more). Contact your travel agent for full details.

MT1973, from what I have read the reno's were to start taking place ASAP, but that they were going to stay open and try not to be very disruptive.

I am looking forward to exploring this property.

Has anyone heard (or seen) how the renovations are coming along at this hotel?

Have booked for over New Year and were told renovations are already in progress and going well, entire place is being done with new spas, pool, restaurants, bars and rooms - should be amazing when done from what I've been told ... Can't wait to hear about it when people have been and can't wait for December to go there too!

Trip advisor reviews suggest nothing significant has occurred thus far. They don't appear to be closing at any point so I'm skeptical about the scale of the refurbishment.

VictoriaC, you just may be lucky that by the time you arrive the renovations will be almost done! But the track record for hotel renovations being completed on time, on a scale of 1-10, with 10 being excellent, here in Barbados it has been usually 1! There are always delays. Supplies haven't arrived, haven't cleared customs, etc. and etc. Good luck to anyone booking now and hoping everything will be completed.
