But best of all the employees are great. the staff is well trained and works hard to make sure that get the most from your visit. In addition, we should mention that the cab drivers serving the resort are great with a special note for Trevor Clarke who we use twice each day & never misses a beat. Read less

They do not advertise this but all guests receive a 10 minute complimentary massage which is good enough to make you want to book the full treatment. Don’t know why concierges don’t mention this.

Anyway great location and lovely beach. Staff excellent especially Sonia in the pool bar. Always smiling and always in control! We booked a BA package on room only as there are cooking facilities for making a decent breakfast in the room: ours had a balcony and overlooked the pool area. A ground floor might have been better but you lose room space for your terrace. Your call. You can easily walk along the beach to the Gap with shops/bars/restaurants and. If in he mood to Oistins for the fish fry but a 3.50 Barbados dollar ZR ride might br better. Food OK burgers great but we are out mostly. Would like to have tried Siam fully but just had some light bites there which were very good. Al in all would stay again. Read less

Six adults with two children stayed eight days at the beautiful Bougainvillea again, our last visit was in 2016. We had a superb ground floor junior suite with easy access to the pool and beach and it was just perfect. We had breakfast and dinner several times and the food & service was as always just spot on, a good choice on each menu and an excellent selection of beers and wines. The swim up to pool bar is great with a wondeful choice of cocktails and friendly service. Bougainvillea has a really great beach where you can relax or go for nice long walks, it's just fabulous in the early morning with the sun rising or pop to the end around 6 pm to watch the Caribbean sunset. Bougainvillea really does work for us, it has good access to beaches, Bridgetown and Oistins is just along the coast for Friday night fun & food. Will we go again ... you bet, try stopping us. There's a good choice of hotels on Maxwell beach but Bougainvillea always feels like coming home.... certainly the best for us. Read less

My wife and I just finished a wonderful week at the Bougainvillea, which exceeded our expectations. The resort is truly beautiful in every way. The architecture, design, and gardens all add to a very special ambience. And the beach of powdery white sandy is stunning. Our junior suite was spacious, spotless, and very comfortable. We loved having breakfast in the mornings on our balcony with a postcard view over the gardens and beach. Staff everywhere was friendly and courteous. We ate several times at Calabash and Siam and enjoyed every meal. (Insider tip: try the pizza. It’s not on the Calabash menu but it’s delicious and a great deal.) A special call-out to Corey, Kai, and Eric who run the watersports. I think we used every toy on hand including several hobie-cat sails. Always happy to help and with a smile! Read less
