Butterfly Beach Hotel

Barbados, Caribbean

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). There is 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. Butterfly Beach Hotel is a great value for money resort in Barbados and a TripAdvisor Travelers’ Choice award winner.

Just stopped for lunch and found its 2 for 1 happy hour on Rum Runners from 12-1....bonus!! View is AMAZING, had a table right on the rail practically in the water! beautiful. Lunch was very good - Pita pocket fish and fried flying fish. Small off the beaten path - good stop while venturing through the island.

This was my 9th trip to Butterfly with my 21st trip to Barbados and all was good good good !!!! I have written oodles of reviews about this hotel over the years, so I am not going to repeat myself, except to say it was nice to see the same familiar faces of the staff, who actually remembered me and my family which means a lot. As usual the half board food package was excellent (buy when you check in as its cheaper than paying for your meals every single day which is not very cost-effective!) We upgraded this year to one of the newly refurbished sea view deluxe rooms on the 2nd floor and were not disappointed at all - fab big modern rooms, with an amazing view, and an amazing bathroom (now)....everything good good good We hired a car through Deborah and had an amazing 1.5 days exploring more bits of Barbados - Ive been everywhere now over the past 20 years lol.....time for a new island me thinks? I WOULD RECOMMEND THIS HOTEL ALL THE TIME if you don't want to go posh (who does) on a nice relaxing Caribbean holiday. Read less

Nice hotel plenty subeds and lounge areas but not good for the beach. Beaches either side are very small and not always accessible for the tides. Our room was really damp due to the AC, my phone kept on getting moisture in charge port so couldn't charge it up. We had to sleep under a heavy duvet it was so damp and cool at nights in the room.

Nice hotel plenty subeds and lounge areas but not good for the beach. Beaches either side are very small and not always accessible for the tides. Our room was really damp due to the AC, my phone kept on getting moisture in charge port so couldn't charge it up. We had to sleep under a heavy duvet it was so damp and cool at nights in the room. Ryan on reception was really helpful as we were without accommodation thanks to airbnb, we walked in and he was absolutely brilliant helping us. The shop onsite is really good too with lots of lovely things in it. This is a really nice hotel with lovely staff. Read less
