My family is going to Barbados in late July of 07' and thinking of staying at the Hilton I have a 9 yr old and a 4 yr old. Is this a nice place? I heard the beach is rough and rocky and the hotel is in the city... is that true? Help any ideas are welcomed!

The hotel is fabulous. It's on the outskirts of the city and very good for kids. July is a good time but you will have to book early as Crop Over Festival will be ongoing.

The beach is excellent. There are no rocks and it isn't rough.

Read through all the reviews on here and you'll see what I mean. all 80+ are positive.

Once again, Hilton is fabulous.

As Javon has said, don't believe ever thing you read.. The hilton is very nice.. and is on a nice beach.. and while it does sit between to point and can sometimes be a bit rough.. there are some great beaches for kids with in 5 min walking distance.. not a problem.

and since there really isn't a city like you might find in NJ.. you really shouldn't worry about the location.. (nothing like Atlantic or Sea Isle so no worries)

You'd have a GREAT time at the Hilton - the hotel isn't in the city, it's on the beach! The beach is stunning and very large and the hotel would be great for kids. Check out my review of the hotel dated August 5th for pics.
