Hilton Barbados Resort

Barbados, Caribbean

The hotel

This hotel has a prime location on tropical peninsula Needham’s Point, giving you two fantastic beaches to enjoy. They’ve cunningly restored the historic Charles Fort as part of the project, meaning you can visit this 17th-century National Heritage Site where American President George Washington once dined. A range of meal options are available, so you can enjoy a delicious breakfast before heading out for a relaxing lounge by the amazing pool complex or perhaps a pampering treatment at the spa.

My coffee/ tea maker wasnt clean so i had to order tea from room service but the front desk was receptive to this feedback. Tamika, the front desk person who checked me in was super sweet and professional. I let her know that i was celebrating a job promotion and the following evening i had a desert platter in my room that read "congratulations". the gesture absolutely made my day. Cuzz is in walking distance. They have the best Fish Cutters, and i ordered room service one day for breakfast and it was pretty good ( although they're kinda cheap w the ketchup lol). Read less

I wasn't planning on writing a review.... especially when places are seen in "high regard." Me and my co- worker and manager were there for their Sunday buffet breakfast. So I'll start with the positives and move on to the negatives cause they are a few. Positives: Food was fantastic. The display of their fruit and pastry table were very appealing to the eye. Love the omelet station. Negatives: Service was left to be desired. Everything we asked for we had to wait LONG PERIODS before we got them. Cutlery...Wait- food got cold, Drinks.....wait- drinks had NO ICE and it was WATERED DOWN, coffee/ tea... another wait- tea got cold cause we had no spoon for the sugar to stir it. We weren't finish with our food but the were quick to take things off the table without first asking if we were finished. If you paused from eating consider the plate GONE. I am not saying that we (rather I) am not coming back. As a person also working in the service industry we all have an "off day" so I guess that day was one of them. So maybe.... Just maybe I may look to give it another try. Here's hoping to better Read less

I couldn't have chosen a better quarantine hotel. The space, atmosphere and pleasantness of the staff must be noted especially Lisa and Rochelle at the Lighthouse Terrace restaurant. If I had to quarantine again, I would head to the Hilton Barbados.

The stay here at the Hilton was nice, I loved the ambiance and the food. However at the end of the staycation I was disappointed. I forgot my phone charger for my new Samsung phone I bought only a week ago in the room and when I realized I didn't have it in my luggage and called housekeeping they said they didn't see it which was strange as I am puzzled to know how it can magically disappear when the room is locked upon exit and I was the only person in the room at that time. So if you are going to visit just ensure you double check you have all your valuables since you may never recover them once you leave there. Read less
