TripAdvisor Traveller Rating:
Stayed at the SCC last week of Nov. Very nice hotel, very relaxing and peaceful. Met some lovely fellow guests, this is a small hotel, so you do get to know most of the guests staying. All the staff... Read more looked after us very well and always spoke to us, even the guys working in the gardens. The food is good, although we preferred the al a carte menu to the Buffett. We did try Jumas restaurant in Spietstown one evening and had a lovely meal, they even picked us up from the hotel and brought us back. We would recommend the Sugar Cane club and hope to return next year. Thanks to all of you at the Sugar Cane for making our holiday one to remember. Read less
We stayed at the sugar cane club from 23/11/13 - 03/12/13, what a great hotel, staff were excellent and the food very good for the all inclusive option. The only faults were that room 301 that we... Read more were put in at first was noisy due to compressor units sounding through the bedroom wall. We asked for and had a room change and then the hot water boiler failed, and this was where a weakness was highlighted. As the management failed to notify all affected that alternative arrangements had been made, you only found this out if you phoned up and complained. The failure of management to manage this situation and another time at lunch when they hid behind the kitchen staff is the reason I have given this hotel only four stars otherwise the experience enjoyed at this hotel is excellent. One thing that we also noticed was that if the hotel is not careful it will become a transit camp for people who spend a few days prior to and after cruises. This can negate the relaxation of other guests. All in all a superb holiday. Read less
I recently traveled to Barbados for a research trip and spent a wonderful two weeks at the Sugar Cane Club Hotel. I was a bit nervous before arriving as I had heard it described as a "boutique... Read more " hotel, but the size of the facilities was large enough to provide all of the necessary facilities while allowing for a unique personal touch. The food at the hotel was extremely good, although I wouldn't say it was necessarily inexpensive. On the whole, traveling from the U.S.A., I was a bit surprised by the prices in Barbados as compared to Mexico or Puerto Rico. While there was a kitchen within the hotel room it was a bit difficult to get groceries so we ended up eating at the hotel quite a bit. Although the kitchen is very nicely equipped with a full fridge, microwave, stove, and oven, along with all of the necessary dishes and utensils. If you would like to use the kitchen and cook some of your own meals you should ask Alex (the extremely helpful shuttle driver) to drop you off at Jordans. There is a grocery store about five minutes walk from the Speightstown bus stop, I think it was called Eddies, but the selection and prices at Jordan's were much better. Although, don't expect the prices to be cheap. For a U.S. traveler the prices are comparable to grocery shopping in Hawaii. We were a little nervous to drink the tap water, and just to give you an idea a gallon of filtered water at the grocery store was $2.50. Overall the service at the hotel was wonderful. The staff was extremely attentive and personal and because it was a smaller hotel they often remembered you and were kind enough to ask questions about how your stay was going. By far the best person on staff was Alex the shuttle driver. He was extremely kind in offering advice and he even brought us a portion of "puddin and sous" (the traditional Saturday dish) from his favorite local purveyor. He also dropped us off at the grocery store and he even picked us up one night on our way back from the beach when we were walking (even though we weren't at the shuttle stop). The manager of the hotel, Peter, was also wonderful. He asked us the purpose of our stay when we arrived and made a point to ask how things were going whenever we saw him. He also had the live band play happy birthday for my dad when we went to the buffet on the night of his birthday. The owner of the hotel was also extremely kind and attentive. We met him at the rum punch party the first Monday we were there and enjoyed chatting with him. The rooms at the hotel are extremely clean and spacious. The one bedroom garden view suite has a small galley kitchen, a living room with seating for five including a small breakfast nook, a large bathroom, and a very nice bedroom. The cleanliness was impeccable and we were surprised not to see any bugs. I was a little paranoid having seen lots of roaches in Hawaii and South Carolina, but I never saw a roach the whole time I was in Barbados. The hotel on the whole is extremely pretty and well maintained. Dinner on the pool deck or in the restaurant is also a very nice experience. I would also recommend taking the complimentary glass bottom boat ride to see the turtles. We went twice and the first time we saw six or so turtles, but the second time we only saw one or two. I would also recommend asking the front desk to borrow the snorkeling equipment or bringing your own and going snorkeling at the beach nearby where the shuttle takes you. I believe they call it "Almond" or "Heywood" beach and it had fantastic snorkeling. We saw all kinds of things: eels, squid, parrot fish, puffer fish, angel fish, as well as a bunch of colorful fish and coral for which I don't know the name. My main recommendation for the hotel relates to transportation. While a number of guests spend the majority of their time either at the hotel or the local beaches we ventured out a bit more making the transportation more of an issue. The shuttle ran at 9, 10, 12, 3, and 5 everyday. This made it difficult for me to get to the archives early and I just ended up paying for a cab every morning at 7am. We took the 5pm shuttle back every day, but this was also difficult because it made it inconvenient to take an evening stroll on the beach or to go out for dinner in Speightstown or elsewhere. If I could, I would suggest that the hotel run a 7 or 8pm shuttle at least on the weekends, if not every day, to allow for their visitors to enjoy more of the nightlife that the island has to offer. This would save the $10 (us dollars) taxi fare to and from the Speightstown bus station and allow for a little more entertainment. I often felt a little cooped up at the hotel at night since we couldn't go out past five without getting a shuttle or walking. (It's about a 20 minute walk from the closest beach (Almond or Heywood) to the hotel). We never attempted walking from the bus station but I think it would probably take around 45 minutes. As far as attractions go I definitely recommend going to the Oistin's fish fry. (Just take the Oistin's bus from Speightstown) We went twice and had some of the best fish I have ever had. The Mahi Mahi (or dolphin as they call it) is excellent. And it was probably the most reasonably priced meal of the whole visit, about 15 US dollars for a full meal (more than either me or my husband could eat) and a drink. Another attraction we enjoyed was St. Nicholas Abbey. We took the bus there and back and it was fairly easy. I believe it was the Boscobelle bus from the Speightstown bus station. We also enjoyed the Animal Flower Cave (just take the Connolltown or Carrollton (can't remember exactly) bus from Speightstown) and the bus driver should tell you where to get off. There aren't many sea anemones left but the cave is pretty neat and the sight of the more violent Atlantic Ocean crashing up on the cliffs is enjoyable as well. Overall it was a great trip and I would definitely recommend Sugar Cane Club Hotel, although do be prepared to spend a little extra money on transportation via taxi if you go there. It will cost about $50 US to go from the airport to the hotel (each way) and then the trip Speightstown from the hotel is about $10 US. Read less
We chose this hotel from the good ratings on this website, and we were not disappointed. When we booked, we were unsure as to how good the all inclusive option was going to be, since on most previous... Read more holidays our preference was to eat out every night at our choice of local restaurants. The food on all occasions in the hotel was very good, and the drinks, although not international brands, were very acceptable. We particularly liked the rum punches. The accomodation was spacious, and we chose a garden view suite when we booked. It was in fact, a four roomed semi-detatched bungalow with a very private and substantial rear balcony overlooking a lawned area surrounded by a dense mixture of coconut palms and other exotic trees, a kind of mini rainforest . This was a play area for a troup of green monkeys that regularly took an early morning stroll across our lawn with their babies. In the evening, we had the sunset behind the palms, and when totally dark, a beautiful dance of bright and silvery fireflies took over. It was absolutely magical. The layout of the hotel is very pleasing and the grounds are exceptionally well maintained by a hardworking team of friendly staff always willing to stop for a chat or a greeting. The service in the restaurant and bar was very good and friendly. We found the pool bar was attended throughout the day, and we never experienced a lack of service from here. All in all, we would certainly recommend this hotel to all those who are seeking great value in Barbados. Look no further than the Sugar Cane. Read less
