TripAdvisor Traveller Rating:
Have just returned from Savannah Beach Hotel. Please read the last reviews they are really accurate and I second all that's gone before. My husband and I have had the most wonderful break in... Read more Barbados and met the most lovely holiday makers ever. All patrons were so friendly and easy to speak with. We spoke with different people almost every day. The staff were attentive, food plentiful and varied and hotel rooms clean. Two gripes: beach towels are provided but only exchanged on a Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday - not really bad but used to having a fresh one daily. Beach is set on coral, so not accessible unless wearing beach shoes, but 300 yards right is a lovely sandy beach. Remember this is a 3 star plus hotel and you wont be disappointed. Read less
my husband and I stay at the Savannah for my 60th Birthday, last week. The hotel was stunning from the word go, Part of it was part of the Garrison when first built ,and the rest of the hotel has... Read more been built over the years very well to match in. We arrived after a 15/20 minute ride from Air port. Don't be put off the Island as parts of it are very run down. The hotel Staff were very professional and very friendly at reception and explained everything in detail, and we had cocktails on arrival, our case were taken to our rooms by a porter- very friendly. The bedrooms were very large and decorated colonial style, with fans and air conditioning. Bathrooms were also big with bath and showers, hair dryers, towels shampoo etc. NOTE the electrics are completely different to ours and even with an adaptor uk appliances are no good. Plumbing can be a bit slow, but works ok. Views from the balcony overwhelming . There are three restaurants, Rachel's- for breakfast and diner & bar also has a piano player some night's, Chop sticks is Asian etc . Both look out onto the stunning courtyard, winding pool and beach .Drifters bar and restaurant is situated on the beach. All have vast and amazing choices of foods, you never go hungry. plus every afternoon they serve a tea about 4pm. The experience of sitting in a bar on the beach surrounded by steel drums, coconut trees, white beach, sparkling blue waters-- is simply the best. The pool snakes around the gardens of the hotel ,with alcoves, and bridges, clusters of palm trees and tropical shrubs. Birds of many descriptions and colours. Even white eagles that swoop down for the fish. hotel provide beach towels once a week. The beach at the hotel is not white flowing flat sands as you have trees, plants etc. As it is next to the old fort there are a fee rocks in places, so you will need beach shoes for the water to get to the coral beds. The turtles ,crabs and fish swim around you. It is a conservation area and each night teams of people heard the turtles and crabs back into the water, as they tend to walk across the dance floor. There is a resident jewellery maker/seller on the beach, but does not badger you to buy, there are beach police that are always on the beach so the beach is very safe. Plus the hotel is next to police station. there are other beaches within 5 minute walk which are long white flat sand, with plenty of water activities ,trip, bars ,BBQ restaurants etc.The hotel runs twice a week to the cococbana beach 5 minute bus ride. Bus rides are manic rules don't apply it seems on the island $2 gets you anywhere.(take U.S or Barbadian dollars not sterling). The hotel staff are very good and work extremely hard and do everything they can to make your holiday great. You WILL NEED sun block even for just a few minutes YOU WILL BURN, you also need to carry water as it is a dry heat. Insect replant is a MUST-morning and evening. The hotel spray every night in the bedrooms at 7 appx. YOU WILL NEED to leave the rooms for this, and there are crickets at night which sounds like a squeaky swing. Barbados is a very religious country and they do expect you to cover up i.e tea shirt etc around the hotel and lunch times in restaurant. There are children at the hotel although no water slides etc and children under 12 are not allowed in the pools on their own. There is a shop on site but a bit pricey. it is a hotel to relax and enjoy with different entertainment each night .I would say if you are 18 -35 ish you will need to go outside for entertainment. I can not prise this hotel and staff enough. Read less
My fiancÃ© and I stayed for one week. He booked it as a surprise. It was perfect, from the moment we entered 'the Tardis' (reception area) the staff did everything in their power to ensure we had a... Read more memorable stay. From Cecil the chef who made me my own special macaroni pie, to Alicia who made her own special cocktails for us to try. Kemisha who had the most amazing staff and always singing, Richsheen who is a little darling and made our week by always going the extra mile, Richard the barman who has lived and worked in the UK - he makes amazing cocktails and tells brilliant stories! All the staff are a credit to the Hotel - the food is amazing...true Bajan soul good and the resort offers exactly what we needed....sun, sea, sand, great food (Drifters & Chopstix for lunch & dinner and Rachel's for breakfast) excellent service and a lifetime of memories - thank you. Only negative note which isn't aimed at the Hotel, but one guest, a lady moaned so much about men wearing shorts for dinner (dress shorts with or without side pockets!)....some people seriously need to get a life! How could you moan when you are in Paradise!?!? Read less
