Butterfly Beach Hotel

Barbados, Caribbean

Virgin rating

The hotel

One of the hallmarks of any holiday in Barbados is a night at Oistins’ famous Fish Fry – and you are just a stroll from all the action (and a short drive from lively St Lawrence Gap for other nights out). Enjoy direct access to two fabulous white powder beaches laid out either side by of this seafront hotel. The iridescent blue waters of the Caribbean may be tempting, but you can also take a dip in the freshwater swimming pools – or head up to the raised circular patio for a soak in its trio of waterfront whirlpools or relax on the ample sunning areas with loungers and umbrellas. The sea views steal the show at The Reef Bar & Grill too, with its new seaside deck providing the perfect backdrop for Caribbean dishes, and for its weekly rum punch parties and barbecues accompanied by steel pan sounds. You can see why the Butterfly Beach Hotel is a great value for money resort in Barbados and a TripAdvisor Travelers’ Choice award winner.

Very nice hotel in that the people who work there are great. But I have to say, in my opinion, it needs updating. Especially for what they charge. And they need to pay alittle more attention to the cleaning when it comes to the rooms. Just as much attention as they do the wearing of masks. This is my one and only criticism.

Very nice hotel in that the people who work there are great. But I have to say, in my opinion, it needs updating. Especially for what they charge. And they need to pay alittle more attention to the cleaning when it comes to the rooms. Just as much attention as they do the wearing of masks. This is my one and only criticism. Apart from that I loved staying there. The staff were very welcoming and helpful. Met some great people working there who my family and I will stay in connection with. Most people are so accommodating, especially a lady called Debra who has her own gift shop within the hotel. Highly recommend paying her shop a visit. Also the best part, is it's close to the beach which was very nice. In conclusion I would have given this hotel a 5 star had it not been for the afore-mentioned critique. But Thank you for a lovely stay Butterfly Beach Hotel. Jameelah, Aziza and Kaz Read less

A great place to stay when visiting Barbados. Spent just over a week there and was absolutely enjoyable. Compliments to all the staff and management for their can do attitudes. The ease of access to the beach and the on-site pool is more than sufficient for any sun worshiping adventurer. Not far from the town centre and affordable bud or taxi… Read more

Our first time in Barbados was a wonderful experience at The Butterfly Beach Hotel. The rooms are clean, light and spacious. We stayed in a Deluxe pool view room with terrace. So straight off your terrace and into a 180ft long adults only swimming pool ideal for doing lengths. The hotel has direct access to two beaches, one at either side of the hotel. The Reef Restaurant & Bar offers a buffet breakfast (continental and full english). As well as a lunch and evening menu, there is an option to chose from a ‘Special Menu’ which changes daily. The staff in this hotel are wonderful, and will definitely do anything and everything for their guests. A big shout out to; Lynette, Deborah,Karen,Stacy, John,Donna & Wayne (apologies for the other staff members whose names I have forgotten, you were all wonderful). Deborah from the Gift Shop helped us with planning excursions and car hire (thank you so much). The cleaning crew again were so nice and friendly and the maintenance men were courteous & always on the go. There is a convenience store over the road as well as a bar and a Chinese restaurant. Nearby Oistens is a 10-15 walk away; or 2 minute bus ride; where you will find a supermarket and a small collection of shops, as well as the famous fish fry eateries. We can’t wait to return and see you all again. Read less

I have been coming to this hotel for years to have lunch at the reef restaurant in the hotel every time we have visited Barbados. This is the first time we have stayed in the hotel for our holiday. We chose it as It suited the budget for a family of 7. I've got to say a little basic but so clean and welcoming! The staff are what makes this hotel especially the manager (can't think of her name) who arranged surprise sparkling wine for our wedding anniversary. Debbie who works at the Reef restaurant, who had the most amazing eyelashes needs a special mention! And another Debbie who runs the gift shop....girl you made me laugh! My only negative is the road noise from the room buy hey you don't go to Barbados to sit in your room. Bus stop outside to take you anywhere you want to go on the island. Wishing I was back there now! Read less

We were visiting Barbados for a wedding and booked a quarantine stay here before moving on to join friends at other accommodation. Harriet was extremely helpful with the booking, explaining all the protocols we would need to follow, we can’t thank her enough. The hotel was spotless, fresh linens were left for our use and food was delivered to our door. The room was large and airy with super comfortable bed and large balcony overlooking beautifully kept grounds. Once we received our negative PCR tests ( all organised by the hotel ) we were greeted warmly by staff, great to see you out & about. We were able to enjoy the facilities, beautiful pool & beach, great breakfasts and evening meals, exceptionally good value. Having moved on to so called 5* accommodation on the platinum coast, to be near wedding venue, we were left severely underwhelmed . So if you want to visit Barbados Butterfly Beach offers outstanding value for money and exceptional service. Read less
