Best Beach Hotel

I am looking for a fine hotel with the best beach and possibly near shopping and restaurants. It has to be at least a five star. I am looking at the Fairmont, The Sandpipper or any other of the same category and pricing.

To that list I would definitely add Sandy Lane and Coral Reef Club. Although only 4*, Hilton Barbados is also a fantastic choice, especially if you're a Hilton Honors member and it sits on two fantastic beaches. A number of restaurants are within walking distance and shopping just 10 minutes away as well.

Somehow I think the Sandy Lane is just what you're looking for and has the best beach of any of our 5* properties. It's 5 star, 5 diamond and a member of the Leading Hotels of the World and also copped a Travellers Choice 2012 Award from TripAdvisor.

Hope this helps

If budget isn't an issue go for Sandy Lane. Any of the others you've looked at would be fine also but Sandpiper is a standout.

I stayed at Sandpiper twice a year for 6 years. In my opinion it can't be beaten, purely because of the staff who are just the best I've ever come across.

Sandpiper is also a short walk from Holetown and all it's restaurants, bars and shopping.

It's sister hotel, Coral Reef is a few minutes walk north, and is arguably the best 5 star hotel on the Island,( depending how you feel about Sandy Lane ) but it is very "Englishj" and more formal than Sandpiper, which is much smaller. It really does depend on what you want out of a hotel.

I can only recommend from personal experience and from friends who have stayed on Barbados before us, but you can't go wrong at The Fairmont. The rooms are right on the beach, the beach is fabulous and the hotel is stunning with beautiful grounds. See my review which will hopefully be helpful.

You can ignore the sarcastic comments above.....

They are no 6 star hotels on the island. The most luxurious and highly acclaimed property on the island is the world famous Sandy Lane Hotel. The resort features 112 guestrooms and suites, a 47,000 sq. ft.spa, 4 restaurants and 7 bars and three world class golf courses.

It is 5-star, AAA 5 Diamond and a member of The Leading Hotels of the World. It also won the TripAdvisor Travellers' Choice 2012 award for Top 25 Luxury Hotels in Caribbean....it's #1. It is also #15 for the Top 25 Relaxation/Spa Hotels in Caribbean for 2012 according to TripAdvisor Travellers' Choice 2012.

Everything about this hotel is first-class.
