Arrived late in the afternoon, fortunately we werae the only people staying at this hotel, check in to the hotel was swift and efficient and our Bell hop/Usher Trevor' pointed out and spoke briefly... Read more about the facilities , explained about mini-bar and air conditioning right & wrongs, all very smooth. More later ! Read less
Check in was quick and efficient and the various parts of the hotel were pointed out as we were escorted, and our luggage carried, to our room (368, King Size Pool View). The room was spacious, huge... Read more king size bed, plenty of hanging and drawer space and the free safe. The bathroom was a good size but, as many have said, looked a little tired. The A/C was efficient and the fan was nice to leave on overnight. The food is terrific. Breakfast in Rachels’ gave a varied choice, Elsie and Nadia on the eggs station cooking them just as you wanted. They did so with a big smile and were happy to share a little banter. Lunch in Drifters again had a good choice, the highlight in here being the desserts. The puddings, pies and crumbles were the best we have had for many a year. The pastry chef is excellent and you will definitely gain a few pounds once you have tried them. Dinner choice was between Rachels and Drifters although each closed on various nights. The a la carte menu in Rachels is very interesting with some very tasty offerings. We did the Bajan taster menu one Saturday with some interesting offerings but not really to our palate. Chefs were often around to explain dishes, a big thanks to Sandra and Didri(?). The service in both restaurants was generally good with wine topped up without request, although the odd member of staff seemed a bit slow and uninterested. Drinks were available from 10.00 in Drifters and 18.30 in Rachels although it would have been nice if it opened at 18.00 for a pre-dinner drink before the 18.30 bookings. Once again good service especially by Richard in Rachels whose cocktail making experience shone through. He made us some excellent Mudslides which became a hit with other guests, sorry Richard for creating so much work for you On the beach Martin, the ‘sun bed’ man, quickly placed the beds where you wanted and ‘dug in’ a sunshade if you asked. Jackie was round regularly to offer drinks. There was one guy selling jewellery who never bothered you but was happy to chat if you wanted, he turned out to be both knowledgable and interesting. The beach is compact and the reef means shoes are essential. You can walk either way, left (looking towards the sea) is more interesting as you will encounter the board walk after about 15 minutes which will take you on a couple of miles if you so wish. One issue mentioned many times, the paths and stairs become very slippery when wet, be careful! The hotel is adjacent to the race course where you can see horses in training each morning. Take the main road left out of the hotel and about 20 minutes later you reach a lovely sandy beach which leads on to the harbour. To the right there is a shopping mall and the boardwalk about 10 minutes away and then onto an area called Worthing. The Savannah provided us with a great holiday, a few minor improvements and this would be 5*. We have already named a few individuals for their excellent service but thanks to everyone from ‘368’ as we became known. Comments on other points not related to the hotel; - Twilight check in at Gatwick with Virgin was very efficient - Reasonable flight over but late due to an ill passenger having to leave before we took off. Very friendly/efficient crew. - Efficient transfers, we did use the private transfer option which was good value - Virgin Rep, Linda. helpful and available if you needed her - Return flight on time with a good crew - Weather generally good but a couple of half days of rain, hot after about 9.30 if the sun is out We would recommend the Savannah especially if you like your food and don’t worry about your figure.

We arrived at the Savannah and stayed one night before boarding a cruise ship for 1 week - ahh the cruise was disgusting but never mind. We returned to the Savannah, exhausted and personally l had... Read more lost weight. The staff at the Savannah were brilliant, attentive and luggage promptly arrived at our beach front deluxe king room. We had a very spacious colonial room with elegant 4 poster bed, flat screen, fridge, kettle etc etc. The room had a very efficient air con unit and centre fan. The bathroom was large, clean, and had everything you would need, all in working order but was a little tired and would improve the whole experience if they were refurbished. There is plenty of wardrobe and drawer space and rooms are cleaned daily. The food was quite good for all inclusive and l usually go 5 star. The ambiance of the place was wonderful, the staff so helpful and they responded within 5 minutes to any requests - got locked out of our safe (free ) in our room, the maintenance man was there and it was fixed in no time. The bar staff was really helpful and were on occasion too generous with the measures.Yes the entertainment finished at 10.00, but that was not a problem we met some lovely friends we chatted to before a small stroll to our cosy, noise free room. We had intended to hire a car and roam around the island, but the resort was so relaxing that before we knew it we were due to go home. We only went Oistins fish fry - an experience, and Bridgetown for some shopping, we were so lazy. We travelled with Virgin and the check out and chill service was absolutely fantastic. Would l go back, yes l would, it was a very reasonable price and a good base for Barbados. Thank You Savannah Beach for a nice end to what had been a miserable start on the cruise ship. Read less
Loved this place although it is the people that make it. We were initially worried about staying here as the hotel is quite small and we are used to staying at larger hotels however our fears were... Read more unfounded. The rooms were spacious, clean and had everything we wanted. One of the rooms had a coffee machine instead of a kettle, we asked for this to be changed and ten minutes later a kettle appeared. Towels are changed every other day but beach towels are changed as frequently as you need them - I ended up having an extra couple somehow! The food...now when you are all inclusive you do expect repetition and this did happen but mist nights you had the option of buffet at Drifters and/or A la carte at Rachel's. On Saturday nights there's also the choice of a six course meal at Rachel's. Breakfast is great, plenty of choice and egg based dishes made to order. The staff are fantastic, very attentive and make a real effort to get to know you. The sunbed guy is there on the beach just waiting for you (no need to bag a bed) and then Jackie comes round and takes your drink order - there really is nothing for you to do! There's a guy on the beach making and selling jewellery - JRW - take time out to chat to him - really lovely guy. The sea bed is tough on the feet so make sure you take sea shoes with you, I did much to amusement of the rest of my family but they ended up borrowing some once we got out there. Turtles do frequent this part of the sea and I was lucky enough to swim near one (without going on the trip) and twice saw turtles hatching at night - unforgettable. Wouldn't hesitate to go back time and time again. Read less
So I have been waiting for that day I have nothing to do but to share good fun experiences with other trip advisor reviewers and readers. Having travelled for many years I have used trip advisor for... Read more others opinion but always continue to visit the place I have researched as my opinion could be completely different as we all have different tastes in life! I believe that you get what you pay for and sometimes with a few added unexpected bonuses This is how Savannah Beach was in January 2013. A very last minute holiday that was half the price I have previously paid for holidays to Barbados. We arrived with the horrible "flu" bug, so feeling sorry for ourselves we camped out in our room for a couple days, all the hotel staff were extremely accommodating and ensured that we had everything that we wanted including a taxi to the chemist on a Sunday! The warmth, food & comfort of this hotel made for a speedy recovery with enough time to explore the beach, catch a tan and return feeling rejuvenated! Read less
