TripAdvisor Traveller Rating:
Barbados is quite an expensive place to eat and drink so we opted for all-inclusive Virgin deal. February is a lovely month in the Caribbean so we made the most of the out-door life (beach and pool... Read more ) that the Savannah offers. OK so it's not 5 star and some of the rooms need updating, but it was clean, comfy, the A/C and everything else worked. The hotel staff and other locals are very friendly so when you combine that element with the location and old-style vibe of the place, they do make an attractive proposition for a mainly slow paced winter holiday. We enjoyed their cocktails and Bank's beers and the food is very good at both Chop-sticks and Rachels. Beach at the hotel is ok but for body-surfing over pure white sand, head right along the beach to the Hilton- fantastic! We had a great time made even better when we met some top Brits from France and Eddie and Leanne from PQA- who were great fun. Virgin were a good company to fly with but the 4 hour pre-flight hotel pick up was a bit over the top though. Hotel plus points include good food, drinks and service and the Hotel Rep was lovely too. Oh and try renting a mini-moke for a day to see the island- we used Stoutes car rental, it was approx $108 including insurance and quarter tank of gas, delivered and picked up from the hotel. Enjoy- we did. Read less
Just returned from 10 days at Savannah Beach and have nothing but praise for the hotel, staff, rooms,facilities, food and drink and location. We have stayed in a number of place on the island and... Read more feel this is now a firm favourite. We took the club upgrade through Virgin and it is well worth it for the extras - special mention here to Jackie for her superb service on the beach deck. Having a pool access room was good however I prefer to paddle in the sea which though a little rocky was still fab, good for wandering and snorkling. Location-wise you are also prefectly situated for the historic garrison as well as for the horse racing - a great afternoon out. I enjoyed all three restaurants - a la catre and buffet options - which put a severe strain on my waistline, and having a hospitality manager for a husband I can confirm the staff are excellently trained, they got his nod of approval (not easlly earned) as did the omlettes cooked to order at breakfast. The room was very well appointed, lovely huge wooden carved bed. We were looking for a relaxed holiday to recharge our batteries and Savannah Beach certainly delivered. A big thank you to all the team for a great holiday. Read less
We visited the Savannah Beach at the beginning of February. We enjoyed our stay and would definitely go back again. We had a lovely large room with two double beds overlooking the meandering pool... Read more . All the soft furnishings looked new including the cushions on the sofa on the balcony. Our rooms was always well serviced and always in the morning. I would suggest that you take your own face cloths as they are provided but seem to run out frequently. We loved to eat at Rachaels in the evening. First a g & t in Rachaels bar, expertly mixed to out taste by the senior barman (sorry can't remember his name) and then a waitress served leisurely meal. Bookings for Rachaels are taken at breakfast, when we where there the guests were mostly couples and we found that to get a table at 7.30 or 8.00 meant that you had to be ready for breakfast by 8.00am at the latest. I guess that this may change depending on who is staying at the hotel at the time. The nights that we did not get a booking for our favourite time we ate at Drifters and found the food to be poor as it It had been kept warm for a couple of hours , although we did enjoy our lunches a Drifters. This was a first visit to Barbados and when we go back again the Savannah Beach will be our first choice. "Your Welcome" - well we were made very welcome and you will here this said many times a day by all the staff! Read less
My husband & I stayed here for our honeymoon last year, and we loved it. The ladies on the reception were helpful & friendly, & the staff in all 3 restaurants were always happy to assist with my... Read more gluten free requirements. The chef who we nick named 'Phenomenal' who served food at breakfast was fantastic, he loved to chat too. The rooms were excellent, very large & clean, with pool/sea view. The pool bar was great, just swim up, & they handed you your favourite cocktail! There were a few entertainment nights, good quality bands but mainly you made your own entertainment, which was fine, didn't want it to be like a holiday camp! There were a few nights when turtles came onto the beach ( a stones throw from Drifters bar) to lay their eggs, magical. The sand was beautiful, water very clean & warm. There is a reef a little way out, which you need to walk over to get to swim in the sea, so you'd need reef shoes for that. There are free trips to Carlisle Bay twice a week from the hotel, which you can book at reception. Well worth going to, absolutely stunning. All in all, would throughly recommend this hotel & would love to go back there. Read less
