We spent a week at Savannah in February and also got married there on the beach. We couldn't have picked anywhere better for our wedding! We booked everything through Virgin & everything for the... Read more wedding was arranged by the hotel... Stefi, Susan & the rest of the staff were fantastic and really friendly, our wedding was perfect and hassle free, and the whole atmosphere all week was fantastic! My picky 6 year old son even loved the food, as well as the games room and the kids club We had a lot of fun at the various events organised at the hotel, including the managers cocktail hour, an egg & spoon race & a couples quiz A big thank you to everyone at Savannah, we loved it there so much and definitely hope to come back some day!!!

We stayed here for 2 weeks in early March & very much enjoyed our stay, yes the bathrooms need updating & the immediate beach front is not idyllic BUT the service is absolutely outstanding & I would... Read more not hesitate in recommending this hotel. Its quite compact but extremely friendly & has a very laid back feeling which is just what we like when we are away. Its brilliantly located for getting out & about & the local bus service is better than in the U.K! We found all the staff to be exceptionally polite & have particular thanks to Martin on the beach & Jackie & Darius who served up lovely drinks & nibbles on the decking, nothing was too much trouble. For a small hotel we thought the entertainment was of an exceptionally high standard & the food wasn't bad either! Read less
Had a great relaxing holiday in Barbados booked through Virgin. The hotel was really good and the food was of a high standard and plenty of variation. Three dining areas, Rachaels, Drifters and Chop... Read more Styx Noodle Bar and we tried them all. Only moan about the food was the modern way of cooking vegetables in Rachaels restaurant so that they are just about raw, being an old git I like my vegetables cooked through (and my meat). Drifters, situated alongside the beach, is an informal buffet style restaurant which never failed to please. If you like Noodles then Chop Styx will make them to your specification and that combined with an excellent location and faultless service make a great evening meal. We had two celebrations during this holiday a birthday and a wedding anniversary, particular thanks to Tyrone for making these meals special by providing a birthday and anniversary plate on the day. All the staff that we encountered were helpful and very friendly, nothing was too much trouble and there was a high standard of cleanliness and service. Read less
First impressions Initially this hotel did not have the wow factor I have had when staying elsewhere simply on the basis of a rather dated looking reception. However I've stayed in places with a... Read more grand reception area and the rest is a let down, fair to say this is the opposite as the rest is spot on. Lovely setting and all kept clean and tidy. Staff The staff were very friendly always acknowledging you at all times. Food and drink There is in my view limited choice at meals particularly breakfast, however what food they do they do very well. I didn't have one bad meal apart from the local Bajan evening on a Saturday which was frankly disgusting and a salt lovers delight. This was in Rachel's restaurant. I found the food in Drifters bar far more appetising and suited my taste. I couldn't understand why on Italian night there was no lasagne or pizza. Yet on normal buffet evenings this was an option once or twice and pizza was once on at breakfast! The cocktails are very refreshing particularly the mudslide which is chocolate based! I think an improvement the hotel could consider is stocking the fridge in the room with drinks, it is all inclusive after all and so would be a nice touch. One thing to be aware of with drifters bar at lunch times is the large number of birds that fly in for food. My tip is if you are in a group leave someone at the table as these tables were unaffected whereas tables with food and drink where people go to get something else tend to find a bird tucking into their food. Beach and pool There are 2 pools. One which is advertised as a swim up bar which I would question as never did I see anyone swim up and get a drink such is the lay out. The other pool is a lazy river which is excellent for a more relaxing dip. The ground floor apartments and second floor apartments all have immediate access to the lazy river from their balcony. The pools are both advertised as opening from 8am which again is questionable as the lazy river was often been cleaned around 8.20. Room The room we had was on the 4th floor which results in over 70 stairs to get to the beach. Ok for us but not ideal for people less mobile. The bathrooms are a little dated. There is a fan on the ceiling as well as air conditioning which kept it cool. Other things to consider The hotel offers free wifi which saved me a small fortune by being able to email home rather than text. The sea is very rocky on the base and not ideal for walking out without rock shoes for a swim.... As I found to my cost. The hotel can't help this but locally there is some party night on a Saturday which involved loud music until the early hours. It was only once a week but it affected our sleep both Saturdays we were there, so I recommend ear plugs for that night to sleep through. I may have been critical over a few things however overall this was a good place to stay and would recommend it and also stay again. Read less
