The SoCo Hotel-Adults Only All Inclusive
Ranked #1 of 9 Hotels in Hastings
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed November 17, 2013

Stayed in the Soco for 8 nights. Food was very good and we found all of the staff to be very friendly. The hotel is positioned beside the main road around the island and can be a bit noisey but it didnt bother us too much at all. The hotel is intimate so you will see the same faces over and over again either at the bar or by the pool and while we met some very nice people at the hotel it is important to get out and about! The only issue we had the entire time we were there was in relation to organising a late checkout on our final day which was a bit of a drama and cost a small fortune for what was essentially an additional two hours. Despite this, I would definitely return to the hotel. Special thanks to Michelle who is great!

We've stayed at The Soco twice this year and will be returning. The hotel had only just opened for our holiday in June and although there were teething problems the staff at the hotel couldn't do enough and we had a fabulous two weeks so much so we returned with friends in October. The welcome we received as returning visitors was unbelievable, it was like going home to family. This time the teething problems had been resolved. The rooms are an amazing size and as other reviewers have said, so are the beds. Andrew and the restaurant team ensure the food that is served is of a fantastic standard. The views from every room are unbelievable and being able to walk straight onto the beach and boardwalk is great. The staff all go out of their way to ensure your stay is exceptional, a specific mention to Michelle who is a diamond. She spoke to the management team as we were returning guests and they arranged a special meal for us on our last night

Looking forward to returning again

Lovely little hotel with a very nice stretch of beach and sea straight outside. Good food, previous problems with sun beds and menu choice seem to have been resolved and absolutely fabulous, fun and friendly staff.

Tiny areas for improvement would be wider choice of premium spirits at the bar and a few of the little used seating areas could give way to a few more sun beds round the pool. Also needs provision of bottled ester in rooms and a tiny fridge would also be helpful.

Hope they keep it as nice as it is now and we will be back.

Special thanks to Michelle and Erleen who looked after us fabulously at the bar and Andrew who is your "go to" man.

Just returned from an amazing week at The SoCo Hotel and it's safe to say we are missing it already!

The hotel is modern and beautiful, the rooms are spacious and the bed is MASSIVE!!! We went to Barbados to relax and we definitely managed that, all rooms overlook the pool and the beach is just a few steps away so you really don't have to go far.
There isn't a lift (but with the amazing food and all the drinks we figured that walking up 4 floors really was the least we could do to balance it out!) and the road can sometimes be nosy but that's what you get with such a great location, it's totally worth it.

The staff are amazing and are the main reason for the brilliant atmosphere - they remember everyone's names and treat you like old friends. They'll come up with great ideas for things to do, suggesting things we would never have thought of (and encourage you to go out and explore even when you're feeling lazy) and ensuring you're making the most of your time there. The biggest problem we had was that we couldn't find an excuse to miss our flights and stay for a few more weeks / months! It was hard to leave even after just a week but, at the staffs suggestion, we'll definitely try to return for Carnival in June - we're counting down the days already!

Special mention to Michelle for keeping us 'sweet' pretty much constantly; for knowing what we wanted to drink better than we did; for keeping us in stitches; for sending us out for fantastic day trips and making sure we had an brilliant time on our clubbing exploits :-)

A review can't quite do it justice - amazing hotel, amazing holiday and absolutely amazing staff. We'll be back!

(p.s. To the manager - the bar staff are definitely in need of a fan, they'll keep smiling and won't complain but they're melting out there!)

This unique and family friendly hotel is perfectly situated in the heart of Hastings and close to all amenities. It is less than 20 seconds from the beach which makes it one of the best for any beach lover.

The rooms are spacious with some of the best beds I have ever slept in and they are excellently maintained. Each room has a balcony overlooking the beach and a large flat screen TV and anything else you would need in a room. The staff is superb from the receptionists, kitchen and the bar staff, they are just out of this world. They are among the most friendly and helpful people we have ever met. The food and the cocktails were just wonderful.

If anyone was to visit Barbados, the SoCo hotel is what I would recommend without reserve. It is reall a precious gem.

Room Tip: All rooma are exceptional save for the traffic noise on the adjuscent road.

Just returned from a 4 day stay @ the SoCo hotel, I must say that I was really pleased with the quick service and the friendliness of the staff. The food was exceptional. The beach located at the back of the hotel was wonderful. Highly recommended
