“Radisson Aquatica...a great place to stay”
Reviewed August 25, 2013 via mobile

Fantastic location, on the best beach we found on the island. Great swimming and snorkelling with plenty of water sport activities available right next door. Pool onsite is small, but very nicely kept. Rooms good with fabulous views. Noisy air con but worked well.

Staff were all brilliant: from the personal welcome Gerry and the reception team gave us; to the lovely bar and restaurant staff; the maintenance guy who would always help sort sunbeds and parasols; and the maids who battled to clean my children's room despite the mess...everyone with wonderful smiles and attitudes.

This hotel is small and personal and well worth a visit. We hope to have the opportunity to stay in the luxury pier suites next time when they're completed.

Thank you everyone for a wonderful holiday xxx

This hotel has a great deal going for it. Its location is excellent; right on the beach with excellent swimming. The rooms are comfortable and very clean, although I personally found the bed a little hard. Service was terrific. Special thanks have to go to Junior who, hearing of my love for ginger beer and my disappointment that it wasn't available in the hotel, went off to the supermarket, unasked, and bought be a litre of concentrate.

Food was fairly unexceptional. It wasn't poor; just rather that the menu was bland and unexciting - a shame when Barbados has such great food on offer elsewhere. My only real gripe is that the lifts in the main building are way past their prime. Slow, hot and often out of order... and a climb to the seventh floor is not something you want to do in the Caribbean heat.

The rooms here feel very corporate which some people may like. It was clean,and the beach bar on the jetty is lovely. Great views,but the staff confuse me! I have stayed here a number of times and the service is very inconsistent. I have had it to be outstanding,some of the best ever in the Caribbean and my last stay it was awful! Slow,rude,incorrect charges and very surly man that just didn't want to be there or help anyone. Reception staff always good. Small pool that is clean and always empty. I like this hotel overall,very noisy leaky air conditioner as in most places around here!

Thank you for taking the time to post your review here on Trip Advisor . Your acknowledgement regarding the cleanliness of the rooms and pool area is appreciated, as well as the positive comments regarding the reception staff . I sincerely apologise that the service you received by one individual on your final day, did not meet your expectations .

Our third visit to Barbados but the first to the Radisson Aquatica Resort. Just relax and enjoy...... the location is perfect, the staff made us feel so welcome and greeted us every morning by name, the food was fantastic and the beach is to die for powdery white sand and turquoise sea. To sit on the pier at night with a rum and coke watching the fish is relaxing beyond belief can't wait to return when hopefully the pier is fully restored. Loved it so much that i am planning to return soon

My stay at this hotel was enjoyable.

Check in service was great
Room we had was great, first floor with a view of the beach and overlooking the pool.

The food was good. I only eat breakfast as other meals were off property.

Staff helpful and very friendly.

Beach area properly maintained and beach chairs and beach umbrellas were put out every morning.

I will return.

The only negative, the air conditioner is a little noisy as they are the older type.

Room Tip: Ask for the room on the first floor overlooking the pool and beach. There are only 10 of them

We loved our stay in Barbados and a part in that was the awesome Aquatica resort with its very serviceminded and funny staff. Just the very day after our arrival we were invited to the managers cocktail party were we met the manager and got complimentary food and drink. Throughout our stay every member of the staff, from the breakfast cook or concierges to the manager himself, were eager to make our stay even better.

The rooms were very nice and always tidy, and the view was really good. (We had a part ocean view room). The breakfast buffet was very appetizing and the fresh off the plate omelett was a nice touch! The dinner (the few times we ate it at the hotel) was also very good with comparable food to the fine restaurants in the central areas like St Michaels Gap.

An extra credit needs to be handed to the employees at the front desk, whenever you needed something they were always happy to help, and every person working there was always smiling and engaging you in a chat.

The only downside would be that they didn't have a fridge in the room and that the bathtub was a bit too small for two ;) However, if we had bothered to ask they probably would have helped us with the fridge and maybe some rooms have one.

One last plus is the safety box, though that is standard in most hotels.

Stay there!

// Patryk & Viktoria, best friends ;)

Everything about our stay here was enjoyable - the staff are so friendly and helpful and the hotel itself is very well done and comfortable. Despite being new there were none of the usual hiccups we were expecting - everything was very well run and everyone was organised.
The rooms were in a very good condition and the cleaning staff are thorough. There was no fridge in our room but I am under the impression that if you ask for one the hotel do supply you with one.
Our stay included breakfast and there was a good selection, although not as wide as it could have been. However, it certainly did me just fine.
The hotel is in a beautiful location and the beach is amazing. The waters are so crystal clear and the pool attendant (Rudolph) is helpful and friendly. There are activities available on the beach such as jet skiing and glass boat fishing so there is plenty to keep everyone entertained. Overall, I can't stress enough just how lovely and friendly the staff were and how sure I am I would return here again. I would recommend the Radisson to everybody and anybody.

Room Tip: Whether you get a "beach view" room or not you'll still always have a good view of the...
