The Savannah Beach was a amazing place to stay a lot has changed since my last visit in July 2012. Not was too much trouble for any of the staff. Had a beachfront room just yards from the Drifters bar which had some of the most attentive staff that brought you drinks to the beach just in front of the bar. Jaqui - Andre- Tyronne are a asset to the hotel very hard working. Food was amazing with a mix of carribean/american food to suit all tastes. I will be recommending this hotel to others. Thanks once again for a fantastic time!

Room Tip: Would say if you are in a beach front room you are near the bar...which is open till 1:30 am.

Dear Guest,

Thank you for taking the time to share your feedback with us! We are elated that you had a memorable stay and rated us 5 stars for overall service. Your compliments have been shared with the team and they continue to thrive to deliver excellence. It is always rewarding to read reviews such as yours that showcase the diligence and commitment of the team. The club upgrade is always an added bonus to the vacation. The VIP check-in, fully stocked mini-bar and laying on the exclusive club deck and receiving beach-side waiter service are just a few of the perks you can look forward to and one of the best ways to be pampered.
It is also great to see that you were able to explore the island and take in some tours and excursions. Renting a vehicle is always an exciting adventure; your choices of sights were great! Hopefully next time you will be able to see the wonders of Harrison's Cave, Bathsheba, Welchman Hall Gully and several other memorable spots. We truly look forward your visit back home with us!

I would certainly stay at savannah again.... I had some issues when I booked because it took 2 weeks for anyone to respond to my emails.. I was very diaturbed by that service...however when I got to Barbados there was taxi waiting on me and the guy was courteous so my vacation was off to a great start.

Everything was waiting for me at checkin. And trevor escorted us to our room and stopped at Rachels for a drink as it was raining as we left the lobby area. Treveor was really agreat start to our stay at sav.

I had a pool access room on the first floor. The room was clean and had all the amenties we needed. Not many tv stations but hey your in barbados and your in an all inclusive hotel who has time for tv..

I must compliment the staff because I called front desk for 3 things and their response was timely and very pleasant

1 room to be sprayed
2 help to program safe
3 arranging taxis

I loved the food at la carte in Rachels and I loved the fact that they allowed my bf to have his chop stixs in rachels while I could have my la carte.

However please dont have the sushi. It was not good at all. It was barely sushi to be honest. I liked drifters bar food however I have some complaints about the tea time. The bread and cheesepaste served was bread and butter with a dash of cheese. Please adjust that. But everything else gets a thumbs up.

I didnt bathe at the beach at the hotel but I walked to pebbles beach and the water was great. Like bathing in a pool in the ocean.

The bar staff was great always eager to assist and and mix you up a special..

My bf loved the egg station at breakfast. Their breafast was great everyday except for the day that a bird stole my food I was quite angry when this happened.

My only 2suggeations are to fix tea time and to have a better way of asking guest their room number. I would go for a meal and be asked the same question numerous times.

Overall I would be back and thanks for a great vacation.

Dear Guest,

Thank you for taking the time to share your review. It is always beneficial to the operation when guests share their feedback with us. We regret that you did not enjoy the sushi at Chopstixx; our Chef will look into what may have occurred here to result in your dissatisfaction. Our food and beverage team always thrive to ensure each dining experience is unique, enjoyable and positively memorable. We sincerely apologize that this was not the case with your experience. However, we are delighted to learn that you enjoyed your dining experience at Rachel's, your pool access room, the cleanliness of the property and the service delivery of our team. Trevor and the entire team will be happy to learn that you were happy with the service they provided. The egg station at breakfast is definitely one of our popular amenities; it allows guests to choose their own style eggs and ingredients, whilst our staff provides that personalized touch ~ it's a favorite with many guests. We are delighted that you are now an addition to the Savannah Beach family and look forward to your next visit in the near future.

We have just returned from a holiday to celebrate our silver anniversary. Susan, the head receptionist arranged a romantic dinner for 2 on the beach, and babysitting for our children. We were very pleased with this, and it seemed nothing was too much trouble.
This is a very relaxed, informal resort, making it ideal for families.
We liked the fact that it was a small resort, and that the staff were very friendly and helpful.
There is a small beach but it never became crowded - there were always plenty of sunbeds.
Our only criticism relates to Rachel's restaurant. On a couple of occasions, you had to eat there in the evenings, and reservations are required, Breakfast is also at Rachel's so it would be helpful if the staff checking us into breakfast, asked us to make a reservation for the evening to avoid confusion later. We did also eat from the Table d'Hote menu one evening but were not aware that children's food (pizzas, chicken nuggets, etc.) were available until we saw other families had them - this menu is a bit grown-up for most children. When we asked we were told there was no children's menu but they could offer these. Curlene was most apologetic and suggested that they should produce a children's menu to overcome this problem. We sorted it out and felt that she genuinely wanted to resolve this issue for the future.
This was only one minor issue, and overall we had a fantastic time, and are seriously considering another visit. The choice and quality of the food was very good, and there was something for everyone at the buffet, which our children (12 and 7) also enjoyed.
Highly recommended.

Room Tip: We stayed in a one-bedroom pool-view suite with our 2 children. Ideal as there is a 4-poster upstair...

We stayed at the Savannah between 20th May - 3rd June with our two children and chose the hotel for our wedding. Thanks to all the staff and in particular, Susan we had an amazing time and would definitely recommend/return.
This was our first trip to Barbados and we weren't disappointed at all. After a short transfer from the airport (we took a taxi for $30 BBD -about £10 instead of the coach) we arrived and were instantly greeted by Susan and the reception staff, who were warm and friendly. Our suite was large, clean and the bed comfortable, (although the sofa bed had seen better days) and had a great view of the pool and ocean.
The food is mainly served in drifters which is by the beach and I can honestly say, having stayed in other all inclusive hotels, was the best in terms of variety and quality we've had - plenty of choice for the kids with Caribbean options also. Breakfast was also of a high standard and the food was replenished regularly, meaning no soggy bacon etc! We ate at Rachel's (al a carte) and this was also of high standard. All the staff in both restaurants were fab, they remembered you and created a great atmosphere - in particular Keetha who was brilliant with our baby, Lucy. The entertainment can be a bit hit and miss but our 9 year old daughter loved getting up to dance.
The beach is small, however there are plenty of sunbeds and for an extra fee you can upgrade to club which allows you to use a decking area also. Most days we took a stroll to the various gorgeous beaches that neighboured the Savannah - all are public so you can just arrive with your beach towels and enjoy! I would also recommend the free shuttle to copacobanna beach, the only reservation is that you are allocated just 2 drinks and the barman there was very particular in making sure that's all you had! (No food is served there either)
There have been some comments in other reviews about the pool area being too small, I would disagree - we stayed in a 'busy' period (half term) and didn't struggle for sunbeds at all.
Around the hotel there isn't an awful lot to do, but if you take a stroll down the 'boardwalk' or hop on a reggae bus for $2 there are plenty of shops, restaurants etc. there are also plenty of excursions run by Virgin and hire cars are very reasonably priced. We took a trip to the new lime grove centre at Holetown too, which is a free trip run by the hotel.
During our stay the turtles were nesting on the beach which gave us a great opportunity to see them up close and swimming in the sea - we also spotted the monkeys who are in the trees around the hotel too! As this is the Caribbean, I would definitely recommend taking loads of mosquito spray- we used lots but still got bitten.
As the hotel is fairly small you quickly get to know other guests/staff and I think that what makes the Savannah so special, there's a great feeling around the hotel and we met some lovely people. The management team are visible and listen and take feedback from guests - a great way of showing that they care.
We had our wedding at the Savannah and thanks to Susan and Gordon the photographer, we had a perfect day - nothing was too much trouble. We wouldn't normally go to the same place twice, but we are already planning to return to the Savannah Beach.
