“Perfect venue in a perfect location”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 12, 2014

My wife and I have just spent a wonderful week at the Beach View, the location is superb, not only for the beach, a very very short walk away but also access to the nearest town is very easy and only a short ride away.
The Beach view apartments are impressive with all the facilities anybody could wish for. Very clean, very well designed and all of the staff are most pleasant and extremely helpful.
A ride into town on the yellow buses is a must, an experience never to forget!! Brilliant.

Room Tip: This is real value for money, because it really is a lovely place.

My husband and I stayed at the Beach View for 2 weeks beginning of May. The sea is calm here and great for swimming. The beach is right across the street or just a short walk along the beach are larger beaches along Paynes Bay which we really enjoyed. The apartment was very comfortable, clean, spacious and well equipped. The balcony was huge, private and had great sea views, we enjoyed eating most of our meals there. The grounds are very well kept, the pool area is large and was never crowded. Shopping was only a few minutes away by bus or car in Holetown. We found all of the staff very friendly and the customer service was great. Do accept the manager's invitation to his home for drinks Thursday evening, we really enjoyed their hospitality and their home and the views are amazing. There is traffic noise from the street in front of the property which was a problem for me on the first night in 211 Carambola building but staff were quick to move us to second floor Seagrape building 205 the next day where I could not hear the traffic at night.

Room Tip: The second or third floor apartments have views of the sea. For light sleepers ask for apartments fu...

The perfect place to stay on the beautiful west coast of Barbados;particularly ideal for the more independent minded visitor,offering spacious apartments and well equipped; if you want to take advantage of the fish market directly across the road,also very convenient for several good restaurants and Holetown for shops, and of course over the road onto the beautiful beach where you can walk for miles along Paynes Bay. Beach View is a great choice in every way.

My wife and I have stayed in BeachView apartment hotels mid May 2014. After staying with friends on a relatively less developed and wild South coast, we have moved to a famous West Coast territory, and have selected a BeachVie hotel base don a tripadvisor reviews.
We were not disapointed! BeachView is a group of apartments managed by Mr.Walcott and his family.Upon arrival we were greeted by him, and he has showed us the apartment and explained every detail of our stay. He is a very welcoming and pleasant gentleman.
Apartment itself was upscaled, nicely furnished, with fully equiped kitched. There is a powerfull A/C system in every room and in terms of romos there is not much to add. Everything was clean, modern and exceeded our expectations.
Clean and quiet beach beach is less that a minute walk from the apartment (across the road).
Overall this was a very nice stay, and we can certainly recommend BeachView as a place to spend a vacation on a west coast of Barbados.

The excellent reviews of this hotel are completely justified. We stayed over the Easter holidays in April 2014 and were so glad we stayed here on our first visit to Barbados. The service from the team was over and above and the cleanliness of the apartments and attention to detail was superb. As most people have said the Monday barbeque and Thursday invitation to Robin and Hazel's house was much appreciated, both being a great opportunity to meet with the other guests - but beware the strength of the rum punch! Found many wonderful restaurants nearby and loved getting the crazy bus to Holetown for food shopping, beaches and restaurants. Just wish we'd stayed for longer than a week. We would definitely recommend Beach View to friends. Cannot wait to return.

We traveled to Beach View for the first time in May 2014.
West Jet flight was fine
Airport was like 15 minutes.
West Jet Rep right there meeting us and taking us to the transfer car.
We were in our room in 30 minutes from the Airport.
Met at Beach View by the owner...class act all the way. He showed us to our room personally and showed us every possible detail about our suite to make us feel at home.
The hotel had our fridge stocked with essential groceries for a small fee and this was a very nice touch and made us de-stress trying to find necessities the first night.
The suite was spotless and we can't say enough about it..it was perfect.
Wifi was sketchy a times but definately fine for what we needed.
Great beach for swimming, snorkeling and walking right across the road.
Lots of eats cheaper and more $ within walking distance.
Took a bus for a buck to the grocery store 10 minutes into Holetown and bought what we needed.
Owner had a very nice reception for all guests on Thursday night and it was very nice...gorgeous house on the cliff overlooking ocean and beach.
We went to the submarine dive in Bridgetown and it was cool. We rented a car and drove all the way around the island and went to Harrison's cave and every other possible spot we could get to in 12 hours. Safe and fabulous island with lovely people.
We would definately go back probably will.
I would recommend to anyone who wants a great place to hang out and call home for your whole vacation or to use a a base to see the beautiful island of Barbados.

I stumbled upon this hotel by accident on the internet, but it deserves to be better known. A very reasonable price for lovely accomodations right across the street from the beach in Payne's Bay. Owner Robin Walcott is a man with a great deal of experience in the hospitality industry, and his family has been in Barbados for generations. It shows in the Beach View. The units are well laid out, nicely furnished, and the gardens and pool area beautiful. We enjoyed our time here immensely, the highlight of which was Robin's cocktail party at what must be one of the most beatiful and unusual homes on the island. We shall return to the Beach View, in fact I have already recommended it to someone.

Room Tip: Some of the rooms are supposed to suffer from street noise, especially the ones on the ends on the h...
