just returned from an amazing week at The House, Barbados. The GM, joanna and her team are so so friendly . nothing is too much for them, they are attentive without being stuffy, and have a great sense of humour. Beware the addictive bar area !!!!
The setting is great, a fabulous open area for breakfast and relaxing and then straight on the beach. Registration is laid back and simple with some complimentary food and drink, gets you right in the mood

Its one not to be missed.

Thanks for a great holiday,

Alan and Nasreen

Room Tip: The rooms overlooking the beach are awesome on all three levels.

My wife and I went here for our honeymoon this past summer. I don't even know where to begin. This place was fantastic! We showed up after a long flight, arriving mid-afternoon. The first thing they did for us after we got in was bring us drinks. There was no formal check in process. We just sat down on these huge sofas, and looked West out at the water. Also, the staff knew our names right from the get go, which is definitely not something I'm accustomed to. Daphne's (next door) was great, as were breakfast and afternoon tea. The view was spectacular. All day it was just blue sky, and then every night it was stars like you've never seen them. Every evening, we could see Venus and Mars setting with spectacular clarity, if you're into that kind of thing. Definitely do the complimentary water sports. That was well worth our while, as we got lots of sailing in while we were here. Hoping to come back here for our 10 year anniversary. Would highly recommend The House!

Lovely room with a dangerous bottle of complimentary rum punch when you arrive, very friendly staff and having Daphne's a very good Italian next door helps. The beach rigHt in front is amazing and we felt very well looked altered by the staff as we sunbathed, fruit, ice creams and bottles of chilled water were offered. Only criticism is that breakfast could have been better besides the egg station the other cooked items were a little below par but otherwise no complaints. Do try he surrounding restaurants and do take a drive to the other side of the island.

We just spent a week at the House, booked through Unforgettable Honeymoons, and that's exactly what it was. The taxi driver from the airport told us he loved the view from the front gate through the lobby and out to the sea and so did we. Check-in was quick and informal, seated in an enormous sofa, and accompanied by the first of many rum punches. We were upgraded to an ocean view suite on the third (top) floor. The suite was huge, with two bathrooms, and luxuriously appointed.
We ate a delicious dinner the first night on the hotel terrace by the beach - the food was from Daphne's next door. The missus had done her homework and booked tables well in advance for the rest of the week at some of the nearby restaurants, including the Cliff, Cin Cin, Tides and the Mews. The Cliff is walking distance from the hotel and the rest are a short and inexpensive taxi ride.
We settled into a relaxing routine of breakfast, sunbathing and swimming in the clear blue sea, lunch, siesta, drinks and excellent dinners out.
There are plenty of water sports and excursions that the hotel staff can arrange but we limited ourselves to a boat trip to swim with the turtles and a Friday evening out to the street party at Oistins, both of which were well worth it.
The hotel staff are amazing and looked after us like royalty for the duration of our stay. Special shout-outs to Teddy at the bar and Anthony at the beach.
The beach is right on the doorstep and the hotel provides comfortable sun loungers as well as bottled water, cold face towels and ice cream. Afternoon tea is also a nice touch.
We had rain most days but just a few light showers which were actually refreshing. There was a New Year's party on the beach with fireworks. The next night there was live jazz music at the hotel and one lunchtime there was a pasta-making demonstration and tasting.
Our stay was wonderfully relaxing and we'd have no hesitation going back to the House again.

Room Tip: Book the local restaurants well in advance!

What can I say - fantastic location - right on the beach - great staff especially Agnes, Wade and Anthony - but I can not fault any of them.
Very small, boutique place - rooms were fine - albeit the room service was a bit up and down - adults only - one thing I will say is it did lack a bit of atmosphere - so you had to make your own - which is fine.
Not much going on - but thats why you go to Barbados - the massage was fantastic and the whole experience made me very relaxed - loved it
Pool is small and food was a bit rubbish it is attached to Daphne s which in my view is not right - its needs something for its self and better breakfasts.
The pool is small - but who cares the sea is right next to you - room size was just right - mini bar worked - afternoon tea was a delight - evening canapés rubbish - but who cares

All in all a fantastic holiday - made by the staff and the location not the management who were no where to be seen - just a point that I think should be made

Room Tip: Ocean View - ground floor
