SAVANAH BEACH HOTEL ,BARBADOS,
Stayed here from 08April to 22April, had booked through Virgin Holidays.
It is a 3Star Budget Resort and is run on a very tight budget, but the good thing is that they do not pretend to be a 5Star Resort, so what you see is what you get.
WE had paid for a private transport/Taxi from the airport, it was a pleasant and comfortable ride from the airport,
Check-in was smooth and quick, we had a Pool Access King Room.Front Desk staff are Robotic,need a lot to learn about how to deal with people,lack people skills.
Room was clean and comfortable, TV had limited Channels, only ten of them worked at any time, did include BBC World News. A/C was OK.
Our room(127) was on the ground floor with access to the pool, yes the rooms look dated, but were clean and adequate for our needs. Bed was Ok,only problem being the height of the bed, a smaller person will need some help to get on to the bed….
Location is on the beach, which is narrow, but has enough sun loungers and shade, and trees.This place lacks any Public seating area,like a lawn or a bench,only place you can sit is the Driffters Bar.
The reception on the main road is on Level 5,and all rooms are a lower level, which means lots of steps from the road to your rooms/pool/drifters, not suitable for people with mobility problems. There are two lifts, but only one of these was working, and this is used by the service and cleaning staff as well.
Food…enough but very limited choice, and a lot of Recycling goes on, Lunch menu needs improvement. No problems booking your dinner at the La Carte Restaurant, here the food was better, but service a hit and miss. The hotel has a Dress Code for Dinner, but unfortunately this was not adhered to.
What really stands out here is the staff, very polite helpful and always willing to have a chat with you, a small tip goes a long way. Virgin Rep. Diane is very knowledgeable and helpful,
Over all remember this is a 3star Hotel, so accept it, if you go looking for faults, you are sure to find some, but then that will spoil your holiday, go with an open mind and enjoy your holiday.
Barbados has a good public transport, it is $1.00USD,per trip regardless of the distance travelled, use the Blue bus, smaller white ones can get crowded .
