Butterfly Beach Hotel - Which room?

Hi guys,

I'm looking at booking this holiday through British Airways (flight and hotel package). I want one of the rooms with a kitchenette but it's an extra £50. Does anyone think it's worth this? We are going for 10 days - how cheap are restaurants/food in the area? I'm not sure which option will work out cheaper.

I assume it's ok to go self catering in Barbados, are there alot of restaurants/good quality food in the area? All inclusive hotels are working out quite pricey!!

Hi We had an island view studio with kitchenette, We like to do our own breakfast and lunch so works well for us. Would only ever go self catering.

Breakfast - make in room

Lunch - either make in room or buy in a roti or food from supercentre deli down road.

We have a car or get on the buses.

Our 2 favourite places show the range of choice in food -

http://www.justgrillinbarbados.com/

http://m.champersbarbados.com/

Always have a special meal at Champers and Regulars at Just Grillin' - lunch time and evening.

Message me if you have any questions!

Hi there

Been looking at the same hotel..

From what I can figure. The extra £50 is for a Studio with French Balcony...

The hotel only charges $5 a night extra for that.. So why not wait till you get there..

I can't see you getting the studio with balcony for the extra £50 as the hotel charges an extra $25 per night for that one..

Check out their site, you'll see what I mean..

When we booked the hotel advised that using booking ref, they would upgrade before we went and did not have to wait till arrival. With our booking, it was cheaper with travel agent.

Thanks ske, do you mind me asking who you booked through? Did you book your room with the hotel directly? Any idea how much a taxi costs from Bridgetown airport to the hotel?

Sparky, it's so confusing! I just noticed on the hotel description it says 'The Island View Studios also have a kitchenette with a fridge, toaster and kettle.' Therefore, this must be the extra £50 option!?

I'm guessing that's the one.. But no balcony...Just French windows..

ske might know more...

I guess you could email the hotel & ask what type of room would be included with the BA deal..

Shows all the different rooms

We booked as package - Hayes and Jarvis

Originally booked island view studio. Got price for upgrade to ocean view from hotel and H & J. Cheaper with H and J.

Island view rooms overlook car park. Not sure if I would pay extra for balcony here but if not much difference between this and French, may want to.

Don't book a package with BA, either book a package with Expedia or book your flights with BA and hotel through Trivago, much cheaper for same holiday,
