We stayed here in March as part of a stay and cruise package with Virgin. We booked a pool access room for my husband and I and my Mother had the room next to us. On arrival the old part of the... Read more hotel didn't look that appealing so please don't judge it on the first glance like we did, we were all a bit quiet on the minibus when we pulled up. Couldn't fault the welcome at reception check in was quick and the reception staff at all times were helpful, we had a glass of the lovely Rum punch and our cases were taken to our rooms, The hotel manager gave us a guided tour of the hotel as he showed us all where our room's were and once out of the old building the hotel is very impressive. There are lots of steps everywhere so if you have poor mobility you would need to think it through before booking, there is a lift at the hotel to access the restaurants although one is situated the other end of the hotel called drifters bar overlooking the beach. On arrival the room was impressive, if i had to be picky the bathroom could do with updating but it wasn't an issue for us, My mother had a musty smell in her room but the aircon was leaking which we reported so we thought that was the musty smell. We loved the food and many cocktails we sampled and of course the Rum. You have a choice of restaurants a la carte at Rachels which you need to book or buffet at Drifters, the breakfast is served each day at Rachels, the egg lady is lovely and she makes a good omelet too. There are afternoon sandwiches with little cakes which was a nice touch as many hotels advertise it and you never see it. The staff are fab they all work very hard and look after you and we said we would return as they made the holiday. Loved the entertainment great singers and dancers, we were so sad we missed the BBQ on the Wednesday as we left for the cruise that day. We went on the Bajan bus tour with virgin which was fab our guide was so much fun so please think about it, we also went on the boat trip along the coast and my husband swam with the turtles that was fab too. The Virgin rep was ok although we felt she needed to go on the cruise so she could answer the questions related to the cruise during our welcome meeting, there was one issue we couldn't use the virgin room at the hotel, yet the door was open it was all furnished but computers were always off, we did tell the rep as this was advertised as part of our package it was supposed to be fully operating, i did write to Virgin to tell them as we had major issues with the cruise. We will be returning one day as we loved the hotel, holiday, staff, food and location but no fault of the hotel the cruise that followed on the Carnival valor was the worst experience of my life so wished we had 2 weeks at the savannah.

Where do i start to provide you with a true picture of paradise. Before we even arrived, i had told the hotel, via my virgin rep, about my food allergies. From the moment we arrived, we were welcomed... Read more by the staff and made to feel so comfortable that we could do nothing but relax. The chef came to see me, to check the extent of my food allergies, and made sure there was always something there for me to eat, which i really appreciated. We went there to celebrate our anniversary,and were made to feel very special. In the morning the staff wished us a happy anniversary and presented us with 2 plates which said "Happy Anniversary" on them with 2 cakes, which were what i could eat. We were also given an anniversary gift which was a really nice torch. The room we had was a pool view which big, the king size bed is a joy, the hotel pictures did not do this hotel justice, it is just beautiful, We loved it. The staff were all very friendly and excellent at their jobs,they regularly went out of their way, to help us. Having a choice of restaurants was brilliant for us, breakfast was buffet, so was lunch, but for dinner it could be formal or buffet, you could not go hungry here. Location was good, you could stay by the rocky beach sunbathing and taking in the view,go to a nearby beach to swim, explore Barbados by bus, or just stay at the bar, where the bartender made drinks including cocktails from 10am to 1pm. Evening entertainment when laid on was very good, music is always in the air, so you could party all night long. Before we left,The operational manager found out i liked sugar cakes and made sure i received them with their compliments before we left, i call that going beyond duty. All in all i would highly recommend this hotel to anyone. Read less
Stayed for a week the second week of September , we felt at ease from the moment we arrived and had a most enjoyable stay . The staff were brilliant ; Ricardo , Fabian , Curtly , Lynette , Darius... Read more , Aeshia to name a few as all staff were great . I had read about the beach before I we left and had reef shoes so not a problem and as others mentioned the close proximity of the other sandy beaches made it a non issue . Food was great with plenty of variety and should suit all tastes because both I and my partner are very fussy eaters . The reception staff were very helpful and courteous and the whole place had a very happy atmosphere and we would definitely return to this Hotel . Read less
We went there for 1 week at the beginning of September. (If you can, try go for 10 or so days as 1 week just is not enough) The experience was incredible. The service from the reception... Read more , groundsmen, management, waiters, bar staff and more was all faultless. I really want to mention some stand out service from Kimeisha and Alicia (there was also a male waiter mainly at drifters, but forgot his name :/ ) There is no downside to this hotel. Yes, the beach is full of coral. But walk not even 150m. And you have a lovely, coral free white sandy beach. They also provide transport and drink vouchers to an amazing beach (not every day) All for from all 3 restaurants was brilliant. The only day I did not enjoy my food was Sunday. (Sunday Roast, not very good) given the choice, I would have preferred a proper Barbados meal. All in all. Yes I would recommend. Yes I will go back and NO, I don't think paying more for other hotels Will be worth it. This one is 100% worth the money. 1 last thing. All inclusive in Barbados is defo worth it as I found alot of prices the same if bit more to UK. (Food and drinks) Transport.... well that's cheap, cheerful and FUN! Thank you Savannah. See you soon Read less
Had a fantastic time, the photos in the brochure do not do this place justice!! Got a free upgrade on arrival & were greeted by a very friendly receptionist, who straight away had our cases sent to... Read more room & ordered us both rum punches. Rooms were gorgeous, food very very good with wide selection, never got bored like some places where the food could be repetitive, always lots to choose from, the most fantastic cocktails of every variety. Staff were so helpful & friendly & could not do enough for you. Could not find fault with this place & it was spotless too, room service every day, towels, together with beach ones every other day, which was fine. Fantastic flights, all made this an amazing holiday. Also free shuttle bus to other beaches & town, which was a bonus. Thank you Savannah Beach & everyone who made our holiday so special. Very happy & satisfied customers. Teresa & Russell from England. Read less
