TripAdvisor Traveller Rating:
Firstly the staff at Savannah Beach are top class. They are all extremely friendly and happy to help with any queries or issues. If you do have a problem, the staff will sort within the hour. They... Read more are on point with any of these issues. (Although our only issues were; a beach towel short for about an hour and the key card stopped working- which was sorted within ten minutes). Finally, the bar staff were extremely knowledgeable and seemed genuinely happy to help. The food in Drifters was good and a nice variety (the grilled fish was fantastic.) Chopstix was a fantastic Pan-Asian fusion restaurant. It was soo good in fact; the only suggestions I could make is to put a sign up showing exactly where the breakfast room is from the seating area in Rachel's. Finally, the pool (which snakes throughout the hotel) is only 3.6ft deep, which may be an issue for some. I highly recommend this place to anyone! Read less
Looking for an ideal base to explore the Island? This hotel is perfectly located to do just this. 20 min drive from the airport, 25 minute walk to Carlisle beach (I only have short legs) and... Read more Bridgetown. The staff are extremely helpful and friendly, special mention to Juanna who was just fantastic and Danielle! Room was cleaned every day, beautiful comfy bed and excellent ceiling fan (much needed, keep it on when out) Even though the Island is only 14 miles long, if you want to explore, hire a car before you leave the UK, it's better value. We didn't eat here as we were on B&b basis as we wanted to explore. But the breakfast is fab. The wifi is available, though hit and miss, but hey you're not here to work!! My only dissapointment was the v small minority of other guests that failed to clear their litter after themselves from the beach. We need to take care and with bins only a short walk away, there is no excuse. As the beach is beautiful with lots of wildlife in the sea! It shouldn't be left for the staff to clear up mess. Take jelly shoes as access to the immidiate sea is stoney, but if you walk about 5 minutes to the right, so near next hotel, the access is more sandy. Though in evenings, the sunsets are amazing. Take a snorkel, again so worth doing, as the beaches up the west coast are worth exploring, especially paynes bay, head for the rocks and swim with turtles and check out ship wrecks off Carlisle beach. Eating out - prices are not that much different that you would expect in UK, especially the popular restaurants such as Tapas and Champners (recommended) and only a short walk away. There is a book in reception that details local restaurants, do have a look. When you check in, ask for a map and a book called Barbados in a nutshell. Very useful! Loved this island, loved the people, will be back! Read less
Just had an 8 night stay at Savannah Beach. The pool access room was lovely, all the decor of the hotel and rooms is very colonial which we loved. Drifters and and Rachel's offer a great choice for... Read more all meals, try the burgers at Drifters, you won't be disappointed! Unfortunately on the night we booked Chopstixs it rained so had to eat inside, but the food was great. All staff are very friendly and helpful. A note for travellers is DONT believe your weather apps at home, ours showed thunder/rain all week but when we got there the weather was great, only really one showery day! Read less
