We stayed for two weeks at the Blue Orchid Hotel and loved and enjoyed every moment of our stay. It exceeded our expectations. Our check in and out was smooth and without any problems. Every member of staff that was came in contact with was extremely friendly and supportive. Nothing was any trouble for them. The manager Margaret Carrington went beyond the call of duty to make sure that every aspect of our stay was an excellent experience. She made sure that even the minutest details was attended to. Reggie the activities coordinator and Angela the gift shop supervisor always had time for a friendly chat. Racandra & Kay the from housekeeping always did an excellent job in carrying out their duties. They also had time for a chat and a laugh. We would certainly come here again. Wonderful and very friendly staff also near to shops, banks and local transport.

We stayed for two weeks at the Blue Orchid and it lived up to ever expectation! I was slightly worried about the sewage issue and the sea was clear for the first few days but did turn brown as the holiday went on, but there’s plenty to do other than the beach! Perfect facilities and gym, bug thank you to Chanel (like the brand haha) on reception who checked us in and out efficiently. We were given a larger room than booked with a beautiful view, spacious with plenty of wardrobe space. We are at the restaurant twice which was lovely. So many other places to eat around the hotel, mojos, tiki bar and berts (for the World Cup) being our favourites! We took a boat tour with a local called tony, we went to his house in the ghetto and his family cooked tea, we played the the kids and played dominos in the street. If you can find him and bubbles it’s THE best day out.
Turtles were swimming in the waves outside of the hotel in the first few days too. Beautiful hotel and people and will always be a fave as we got engaged here also on our last day:-) thank you for an amazing stay!

We called in one day to reminise on a stay at the hotel many years ago. we ordered 2 drinks from the bar (Local rum and mixers) unfortunately the young lady serving thought I said white wine and not white rum, too busy watching a film on the TV. We paid and when we sat down we couldn't believe that we had just paid 22 BDS for these 2 drinks, my husband went back and queried it and was told that was right. After speaking to a few locals they said "you have been ripped off" after 45 plus visits to Barbados we will definitely not be visiting The bar at Blue Orchid again.

Just stayed here again and as always it’s been excellent. It’s ideally situated near Restaurants especially Champers which is a short walk up the street. The hotel is right on the beach.All the rooms are sea facing.All the staff are so nice, very friendly and helpful. The hotel has just been refurbished and looks great It’s always very clean and tidy..There is a bus stop right outside,so it’s easy to get around the island .we will be back.

Room was redone since my last visit. Nice new kitchen. Great views of ocean. Very comfortable bed. The wifi was strong. Staff was friendly as usual. Only complaint is same as last visit, the obnoxious private 14 person vans honking the air horns at all hours of the day. I read that the new Gov't is doing a crackdown on these vans and the air horns are illegal anyway. Great value.
