Set on a pristine stretch of white sand on Barbados’ West Coast, The House is the beachside version of a hip downtown hotel. On a design front its combination of smooth lines of teak, curved lanterns and modern lighting set a mood that is suitably exotic. Yet it’s a beautifully intimate place with plenty of privacy for romantic dining. For food lovers The House itself may be one of the best hunting grounds on the island, because the most acclaimed addition to the Barbados restaurant scene is the adjacent Daphne’s. Located bang on the beach, this satellite of the famous London restaurant serves a metropolitan version of Italian dishes, with an emphasis on seafood and is regarded by many as better than the original. Let your Hotel Ambassador organise your arrival massage, a round of golf at nearby Sandy Lane, spa treatments in a beachside cabana or next door at the sister property, Tamarind or try your hand at the complimentary water sports. The service extends down to the beach and The Deck with complimentary afternoon tea and Daphne’s all-day dining menu.

TripAdvisor Traveller Rating:
Best hotel for a holiday for two elderly adults. No children under 18; superb grub at Daphne's adjoining the hotel or Scarletts across the road and the Cliff 5 minutes walk away. Staff are... Read more outstanding and most responsive to any requests. Breakfast ranged from full English with eggs cooked to order to fresh tropical fruit, croissants, toast & marmalade. Beach adjoining dining area offers swimming and watersports plus idyllic walks - especially at low tide. Superb relaxing facilities and spa jetlag recovery treatment.. Read less
Just back from 2 very relaxed weeks having been looked after like we were with friends.The sea view rooms are the best position but avoid room 168! The House is a small adults only hotel that... Read more provides a friendly approach to guests.The beach is excellent & the beach service is the best we have ever experienced with either fruit, ice cream, cool sprays, cold cloths & water all complimentary on the hour throughout the day.Breakfast was a good choice buffet with a selection of both hot & cold food.The afternoon tea of sandwiches & cakes (also complimentary) is a nice British touch.

My daughter and I spent a week at The House in February. It was such a wonderful experience. We were both looking to just relax and unwind and The House was the perfect spot to do that. Our ocean...

The attentive service beach and pool side was fabulous; cooling lowers, fresh fruit and ice cream, even coming around to clean my sunglasses! I can't wait to return! Read less
We visited Barbados nine years ago and promised ourselves that the next time we would stay at The House. It was definitely worth the wait and we will be going back next year. It feels like you are... Read more staying with friends who are looking after you with such a personal touch and a genuine desire to make your holiday the best ever - and they more than succeed. We have been lucky to stay in some wonderful hotels in many different countries but the House just stands heads and shoulders above anywhere we have stayed before. It offers total relaxation in a stunning location with the most amazing staff and is one of the most romantic places I have ever stayed. All the staff go above and beyond to make your stay special but in particular I would like to give a special mention to Andrew, Teddy, Alana, Agnes and Christopher and of course the wonderful General Manager Joanna. Thanks for making our holiday so memorable. Read less
