Hard to beat the location on a pristine south coast beach. Very child friendly. Our two-bedroom suite was perfect for us as a family of five as we could cook most or our meals. All very comfortable and well-maintained. The hotel is notably smarter than when I stayed here in 2009. There is a good gym and good facilities for getting showered and… Read more
Hard to beat the location on a pristine south coast beach. Very child friendly. Our two-bedroom suite was perfect for us as a family of five as we could cook most or our meals. All very comfortable and well-maintained. The hotel is notably smarter than when I stayed here in 2009. There is a good gym and good facilities for getting showered and changed when you have checked out but are waiting for an evening flight home, which makes it feel like you are getting an extra day of holiday. It is expensive but rates seem to be in line with those elsewhere in Barbados. Read less

We have traded many weeks over the years for vacation in the Caribbean, Mexico and other beach destination. This resort had the best beach of any that we have visited. The unit was spacious, welcoming and modern. Enjoyed our time here

Completely unplanned, as there was a mix up at our other resort and so we had to research the best nearby deal for an overnight stay! However we were quite impressed with Bougainvillea, despite an extraordinarily long check in process due to the reservations team not being onsite when we arrived around 7pm (as we had only booked an hour prior), which is something that should be improved. The rooms must have been recently refurbished as they were really modern, clean and nicely laid out, they even had White Company products for us to use which we were amazed at! The hotel is very quiet, not that many rooms which makes it quite peaceful and all rooms have some sort of a sea view and a balcony/terrace which was beautiful to wake up to and a sight to behold. It has a beautiful location, being set directly on a lovely stretch of beach. However it's worth noting there were no lifts and so being on level 3 with heavy luggage made it fun as we were with our parents and so level 3 wouldn't have been that practical for them longer term. The beds were large and super comfy, however we must admit to being disappointed that there were no basic tea/coffee provision within the room itself. We had dinner at their basic restaurant Calabash, which was a bit disappointing as the food served wasn't that great and the service was extremely cold to begin with (we felt that we were a nuisance to the waiting staff!), however after a bit of warming up and us making lots of effort to become friends, the service did improve. All in all, Bougainvillea was a lovely last minute find and it would have been lovely to have enjoyed a longer stay, and even a cocktail in the pool bar! Read less

Currently staying at this hotel and was informed on Wednesday 18th we could have late checkout only for them to say we couldn’t the next day. I’ve checked online and there’s rooms available so it’s left a sour taste. I’d probably have gone back but I won’t now. Just make sure you have a witness when they say something.

What an amazing hotel right on the beach. We had a suite which was very large and had partial views of the sea and pool. Great bathroom and shower. A fridge was a great benefit for the Champagne they provided for my wife's birthday. That really sums up this hotel - nothing seemed too much trouble. Check in was quick and the rum punch helped.

A fridge was a great benefit for the Champagne they provided for my wife's birthday. That really sums up this hotel - nothing seemed too much trouble. Check in was quick and the rum punch helped. Great breakfast and meals more or less on the beach. Tennis over the road. Friendly staff. In short I woudl highly recommned this hotel. Read less
