TripAdvisor Traveller Rating:
We stayed for a week in January 2015. The location is within walking distance of the George Washington House, Barbados National Museum, and Garrison Race Track. Short cab rides or long walks can get... Read more you to Oistens Fish Fry, Bridgetown, or St. Lawrence Gap. Some of the reviews for Savannah Beach were disappointed with the food. We thought it was very good for an all-inclusive resort and the non-buffet meals at Rachel's were fantastic. The staff is very attentive and friendly, but is not over-bearing and will not force activities on you. Most of them knew our room number and drink preferences by the end of the week. The hotel only changes towels every other day to conserve water, but you can request fresh towels daily for an additional fee. Read less
Stayed for a week at this hotel in January 2015. Had a pool view suite. The room was situated in the middle of the hotel, giving the balconies a view of the meandering pool, the beachside bar... Read more (slight view of sea) and courtyard with the restaurants above. The room was very spacious, over two floors, bit dated, but in Caribbean style with dark wood furnishings. Rooms were kept functionally clean. The layout of the hotel, meant you could enjoy the surroundings of the hotel from most angles (whether the meandering pool, palm trees, court yard pools or the waterfall). The food was varied and of good quality, cocktails were delicious and plenty to choose from (visitors are allowed in to eat at restaurant prices). Pools were shallow and underused, but perfect for a cool off. The hotel beach is pleasant, but the water cant be used for swimming because of rocks. More naturally scenic beaches are just to the right leading to the Hilton Hotel beach which is better for swimming. Well equipped games room and also Spa Facilities (at extra cost) Hotel staff were friendly and helpful, and the Virgin rep was great. Bridgetown is 20-30min walk away, and can do a lot of it via the beach. Had enjoyable visits to Submarine, Cool Running's (Catamaran) and Champers Restaurant which we recommend. Also 30mins-40mins on the bus to Holetown for shopping centres. All in all a great holiday at the Savannah and we would go back. Read less
Stayed here for a week with friends with the sole purpose of relaxing and getting some down time. The hotel delivered that very nicely. The hotel is warm and friendly and the service very good in all... Read more areas. All staff were very helpful and cheerful. The food was very good in all restaurants but Rachel's in the evening was particularly excellent. We did an all inclusive via Virgin which was good value for money and took all the hassle out of deciding what to eat and where. Dion the Virgin rep was very helpful and arranged an excellent trip on a catamaran snorkelling with turtles (reported separately). In summary a warm, friendly hotel with local character which we would all recommend to our friends. Read less
Stayed for ten nights ( 11-22/01/15) all inclusive via Virgin Holidays. We had a courtyard room which was worth the upgrade for the excellent balcony/sofa. Such a relaxed environment produces a great... Read more opportunity to leave the rest of your life behind for a short while. Our room had a fridge,air conditioning and a king size four poster bed... The hotel and grounds are clean but not perfect - if you want to go looking for small issues you can find them but we went to relax not nit pick.. A good basic gym for maintenance exercise - nothing fancy but more than adequate and a most welcome addition.3 restaurant choices, nice pool for cooling off and direct access to the beach. All beaches are public so you can take a left at the beach and explore the coast - ten minutes to the first convenience store and twenty to an amazing beach that is great for swimming. Most beaches on the south coast have a reef sea bed so can be tricky for swimming. Virgin rep(Dionne) was very helpful for organising trips ( swimmimg with turtles/fishes on the Calabaza, a tour around Harrison's Cave and an hour in the Wildlife Park). A free experience was on offer - this turned out to be a short bus trip to Bridgetown(the capital) which was a tad disappointing. Bridgetown is very busy - full of taxi drivers desperate for tourist trade. Worth seeing the city but don't reserve much time for it... Went out and about under our own steam too and braved the buses - the yellow ones and the white reggae buses($2 for each journey - again a good sample of local culture even though it looks scary at first, the reggae buses are usually jam packed and run every two minutes or so!). The island is small and easy to get around - very safe and very worth experiencing. If you are thinking of going - do it... You won't need a sweatshirt even at night - hot by day and warm by night. It never climbed out of the twenties during our stay and their version of bad weather is a little cloud cover or a two minute rain shower. It rained seriously only twice and was after sundown. Sun is up at 6 and sets at six.Paul. Read less
Couldn't really find fault with this 3* hotel. Our room was a pool access room, spacious, clean and with a lovely balcony and stairs down to the pool. Food was good, both the buffet and the... Read more restaurant meals. Plenty of choice. Drifters bar had a good atmosphere and the evening entertainment was varied if not always to our taste. The beach is ok for sunbathing but the hotel run a free shuttle to a much nicer beach nearby which is better for going in the water (the beach at the Savannah is a bit rocky / coral and sharp underfoot.) Reception attended to problems promptly and the majority of staff were very friendly and helpful. The hotel is in a lovely area near the historic garrison area but there is not much to do outside of the hotel nearby in the evenings. We stayed for 3 nights before heading off on a cruise and we were very relaxed at the end of our stay. Whilst there, you have to take a trip on the white minibuses - its a realy experience!! Read less
