“Satisfactory Stay at Plum Tree”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 21, 2012

My husband and I stayed here from Aug 4-11, 2012. We found the place satisfactory, but not great. We had a 2nd floor room which overlooked the golf course. The view from the balcony was very green and peaceful, and we enjoyed leaving the sliding glass doors open when we were in the room. However, the living room furniture, consisting of 1 couch and 2 chairs was extremely uncomfortable. The couch was on the same side of the room as the tv, so if the 2 of us wanted to watch tv, only one of us could sit on the couch. Also the couch did not have any pillows on the sides (where the arms were) so we ended up pulling cushions off the chairs to pad the arms so it wouldn't hurt our backs when we sat on it. Even the chairs were uncomfortable if you were sitting in them for more than 10 minutes. The bedroom had air conditioning which was nice for sleeping but we were not able to control the thermostat. During the middle of the night it felt like we were sleeping in the arctic, and there were no extra blankets provided. Also there was no tv in the bedroom. You would think since tvs have become so cheap they would have added one. The mattress was a split king, which was comfortable. Room service was provided every other day. On the whole, the place was clean, staff friendly and being on the golf course lent a serene atmosphere to a beach vacation. However, I would have rather stayed down in town where we could have walked to the beach, restaurants and bars.

I stayed at the Plum Tree Club for three weeks in July this year(2012). Again I was extremely satisfied with my stay at this beautiful hotel. The grounds have continued to retain their immaculate condition and the service at the front office is highly commendable. Looking forward to being there next year

Room Tip: Rooms overlooking the pool are fantastic

We loved every second of the holiday from the friendly lady at reception to the taxi driver Ken who does the shuttle bus to the beach as well. The rooms are not the Ritz but to be honest they do the job, clean sheets, fresh towels, cleaned every day, plenty of room, aircon in the bedroom, we were looking direct out into a tree with birds visiting us every morning, swimming pool open 24 hours, two balconies, good kitchen, well cared for grounds, great little bar and bistro a few hundred yards away on the golf course with really good food at the best prices around. Some good meals out at Pisces and Tapas, we also did Champers but it must have been an off day in the kitchen. Dont miss Ted's Tour of the Island, book at reception, never had such a good tour anywere. We also enjoyed going down to the beach, on the left hand side facing the water is the Sideshore bar, owned by a German guy called Lutz, totally amazing rent his sunbeds for $15 and get the money back in drinks and towards food, Sunday from 4pm is just amazing at the Sideshore, music, dancing and great food until late at night. If you are look for a relaxing break, friendly people, good beaches, good food then its the place to go. Its not a 5 star delux hotel but what the hell done that many times and you can get fed up of it, we enjoyed this holiday more than most in the past and look forward to our next visit.

We visited here using our RCI points and worth every point it was! What a fabulous week we had. We stayed in apt 730 on the 1st floor. Lovely, clean, basic apartment but with everything that you need for a short stay. Towels were changed 3 times whilst there. Cleaning, Reception and Ground staff were very friendly and polite. The grounds and pool were outstanding. We had the pool to ourselves every morning during our stay - bliss! We hired a car during our stay and it was worth it. We visited so many places - it was amazing. There is a shuttle bus to the local beach (Rockley/Accra) 4 times a day. Worth trying it out. We did. Beaches were absolutely amazing. Better than the postcard piccies! We were amazed. You can hire 2 x sunbeds and 1 brolly for around $15 for the day. Well worth it. It was our Queen's Jubilee on our visit and this was celebrated in Barbados. In St Lawrence Gap there was a street party - people in red,white and blue, stalls and fabulous music and food. There was the Horseguard Parade at the Garrison - brilliant too. We visited Mount Gay Rum Distillery - well worth a visit. We had some fab meals out - Pisces and Bellini's in St Lawrence Gap were gorgeous. Zaccio's in Sandy Lane to name but a few. We didn't have one bad meal anywhere. The cocktails are to die for! Try Oistins Fish Fry - Friday evenings. What a wonderful place. The atmosphere is alive - tressle tables laid out - bbq's grilling fish - music - dancing. Absolutely refreshing. The people are the friendliest we have ever met on a holiday abroad. We will definitely be back.

Room Tip: 730 was good!

We exchanged our RCI week at the Plum Tree Apts. I had emailed the office earlier and asked for an upstairs unit. We arrived late and picked up the keys from the guard. The unit 728 was upstairs like I had asked, facing the golf course. It is quite spacious with a living-dining room, small kitchen, 1 bedroom and an ok size bathroom. The rooms are clean and well furnished and maintained. The bed is hard so if you have back problems its a bit tough. The 2 balconies/terraces are lovely and provide extra room to just sit and relax. There is a safe in the room but you have to get an adapter from the office for it. Although a small complex, the grounds are well maintained with a small pool and laundry room.

It is far from the beach but there is a free shuttle 4 times a day that will take you to Accra beach. Here you can rent 2 loungers and an umbrella for $10 a day. The beach is lovely with white sand and beautiful clear water. There is a boardwalk next to the beach with a few restaurants on it. There is a grocery store on the way which has shuttles that will drop you back at the condo. We did venture to walk to the store and beach a couple of times but with the heat it seems far and is a tiring walk. A taxi from the airport to the complex costs approx $20. one way.

We rented a car for a day from Scouts Rental that dropped it off and picked up at the complex which was convenient. Drove along the west side of the island and visited Mt. Gay Rum Distillery and Cherry Hill (hard to find but it is near the Nicholas Abbey). Loved the island and friendly people. Walked around Bridgetown as well. There are several restaurants along St. Lawrence Gap ($10 by taxi from the complex) which are reasonably priced. Pisces is good for Seafood. We missed the Oistens Fish fry on Friday but hear it is fun.

If you are arriving late on a saturday please note that the offie is closed on Sunday so you will not get any service till Monday. They are very responsive to a phone call however and did help us out. Loved Barbados and might visit again.

Room Tip: Ask for an upstairs unit overlooking the golf course or the garden.

The Rockley Resort Complex is an ideal area for a do it how you want it vacation or business stay.
I have been here on more than 4 occasions but just decided to write a review since this will be my last visit here for some time to come.
A nice clean and comfortable 1 bedroom Apt. with kitchenette, polite and helpful service staff. Extremely relaxing, a welcome difference from the mainstream hotels…almost like home.
A Pool, a garden and a golf ball or two to temp you plus you me even see a few monkeys.

We stayed in apartment 731 near the Pool area. Every time we requested help from the ladies in the office it was freely given, with genuine good grace and humour. They deserve praise for their polite and efficient manner.
The apartment was kept spotless by the domestic staff who, like all Bajans; were polite and very efficient.
The pool and the grounds were well kept and maintained and the beach was easily within walking distance although a shuttle servce is provided.
An excellent, very relaxing holiday. I would recommend the site to everyone.
Thank you all.

Room Tip: Rooms closer to the Pool have the better view aspect than those closer to the entrance. We did prefe...
