Read more Caribbean Sea. If you want a relaxing holiday in a well maintained hotel with fantastic food and staff who can't do enough for you then this is the perfect choice. My wife and I booked the hotel after consulting Trip adviser so we were not quite sure to expect. Quite simply it was perfect. The staff are amongst the most naturally friendly and warm people I have met. They are a credit to their hotel and Barbados. We will definetly be going back in the future. Read less
We stayed here for our belated honeymoon and loved every minute if it. The hotel is perfect. The staff are so helpful and friendly. The food is excellent. We liked the option of a formal and casual... Read more restaurant. We particularly enjoyed cocktail of the day from the cave bar. The pools are attractively set amongst well tended flowers. The evening entertainment was low key but enjoyable. The beach is stunningly beautiful and one highlight for us was the glass bottom boat trip to swim with the turtles which Randy organises. Our room was a garden view room but because it was on an upper floor, we got a great view of the sea. Overall, our trip was just perfect and we would love to return at some point. Read less
