Excellent accommodation at this hotel which suited our requirements for a good quality hotel without the trappings of a resort complex hotel. All the hotel staff were extremely helpful with every aspect of our 9 day holiday - unlike some other reviewers we had no problems with insects on the top floor - although I imagine the access stairs would not suit those with walking disabilities. Michelle's varied rum and non-alcoholic cocktails from the ocean view terrace bar were wonderful. The restaurant was a stylish fine dining experience, with a limited choice menu but excellent quality food and the menu was changed every few days to give greater choice - including some speciality local fish dishes as well as other English and Italian options. The hotel location on Barbados was very convenient for the island tours and the catamaran sailing trips. The boardwalk gave picturesque views along the shore, one evening we were able to see some hawksbill turtle hatchlings make their way to the ocean. The traffic noise in the early morning and evenings from the road outside was slightly irritating but this is outside the hotel's control and ceased during night hours. We weren't bothered by the limited number of sun beds on the hotel terrace, preferring to be out and about exploring the island rather than sunbathing. Being at the end of the boardwalk the beach was a bit of a magnet in the afternoons for some loud local teenagers who made a bit of a nuisance of themselves, however this only happened on a couple of afternoons. The local Bajan community was otherwise very helpful to us as tourists. Overall an excellent holiday experience and for us, great value for money. I would also recommend using online booking for the flight back to the UK to avoid the worst of the check-in queues at Bridgetown.
