Entertainment was also enjoyable, off season, every second day. The best hotel in Barbados in the price range. Read less

This has been a great find on our first trip to Barbados. The hotel was in a perfect location with St Lawrence Gap a 25 minute safe and easy walk away. We usually prefer sunbathing by a pool, but with the beach being on the doorstep, very spacious and always easy to get a good uncrowded position, we headed to the beach! The staff were all very helpful and friendly. Our room was modern, very clean and roomy. The beach bar/restaurant was very good and reasonably priced. The only criticism would be the price of breakfast; more expensive than lunch with a bottle of wine! Overall fab place and we will be back. Read less

We have just returned from a 10 day stay at this Beautiful Hotel where the rooms were spacious and clean, and the staff extremely friendly. From the minute we arrived we were met with warm and friendly reception staff who answered every question with a smile. We had a junior suite with a view of the pool and the beach, it had a nice seating area and a good sized patio/balcony to sit on while listening to the sounds of the Caribbean sea or the music from the entertainment at night. Our rooms and towels were cleaned and changed daily, and again staff were very friendly and polite.. We chose continental style breakfast with a lovely fresh supply of fruit, yogurt, cereal, cold meat, pastries and plenty of tea and coffee.. The buffet in the Calabash restaurant was lovely and we would have enjoyed a few more buffet nights. The beach was fabulous with lots of room and no rush to book sunbeds as there were plenty available, a real bonus!. My husband made good use of the watersports on offer and this really made his holiday. Thank you to the staff who were very helpful. The grounds around the hotel were immaculate and you would often see staff clearing up leaves and ( bougainvillea )petals. We would definitely recommend this hotel and hope to return in the not too distant future. Read less

We loved our stay at the Bougainvillea! The rooms are large, clean and comfy and we loved that it had a kitchenette so we could have breakfast/lunch in our room. The beach right outside the hotel is amazing and not packed, we got a chair no matter what time we showed up. Pools are beautiful too and nice and warm. We'd definitely return!
