Arrived with my wife at the end of April and gained a great arrival from Shenal at reception! She was great at helping us with tourist enquiries and told she thought we were "cool"! Service all... Read more round was great and friendly, rooms was large enough and kept clean regularly, food at breakfast was fresh and variable each day, lunch at Drifters was the same and the burgers were fantastic at Bernies. Al la cart was good but try and get yourself into Chop Sticks as many times as you can! The pool area is pretty small, but quiet and peaceful. The beach is ok but not good for swimming. Based on the service, food and location...we'll be back! Read less
Just arrived back from a two week holiday and can honestly say nothing was too much trouble for the staff. They are all typical Barbadians in that they are all very laid back. Excellent food in all... Read more outlets there. Beach full of seaweed but NOT the hotels faults. Lots of rock on main beach so walk to the left a little just past the private area of the hotel and there are some wonderful swimming areas, their sister beach Copacabana is excellent. Room 311 was excellent nothing to complain about at all. Read less
Third trip to Barbados, but the first time to the Savannah Beach hotel. Good choice of hotel, good location a few miles out of Bridgetown. Lovely old colonial style features. Lovely beach, but had... Read more problem with seaweed, which is not the fault of the hotel, and has been a problem around the island for some time. Unusual setting on a slope down to the sea, being two sets of buildings with features in between. Staff were in the main efficient, but things like having a full compliment of sugar, spoons, condiments etc at meal times doesn't happen. Having to look for one or more of the above at each meal is a bit of a nuisance.....but hey it's a small criticism. Room was big, as was the bed. Nice balcony with a sofa and footstool....would have liked a COFFEE TABLE instead or as well. Always plenty of hot water, but the shower needs updating. Food was in the main very good, with Drifters being the choice most days. Overall a good hotel, with good location at good value. There are a lot of stairs/steps at this hotel with lifts on one side only......ask before booking if you have mobility issues. Read less
