Little Good Harbour

Barbados, Caribbean

Virgin rating

The hotel

A little piece of real Barbados, this collection of suites sits in a peaceful fishing village, along a stretch of white sunbed-sprinkled sands. Part of its unique charm comes from its beautiful 18th century fort, beautiful gardens along with two serene pools and a spa. This luxury hotel’s handy spot near Speightstown gives you plenty of options for dinners out – but many locals choose to visit Little Good Harbour itself, to feast at The Fish Pot. Set inside the historic fort, it’s one of the island’s most famous and fabulous restaurants, featuring coastal classics like Caribbean lobster

We stayed for thirteen nights in one bedroom cottage B7 at the beginning of April and loved every moment. From our warm welcome by Andrew and Trevor to our last sunny afternoon by the pool we felt that our comfort and happiness was their priority. Little Good Harbour is an oasis of calm, beautiful lush plant life everywhere and it’s wonderful to know that what many reckon to be the best restaurant in Barbados is just across the road. We ate most evenings at the Fish Pot but at lunchtimes we enjoyed getting light meals together in our kitchen. You can get basic foodstuffs from the nearby Moontown store but we also found it worthwhile to make a trip to Massey’s supermarket in Holetown where you can find just about everything you want. Little Good Harbour’s northern location away from the busier main hotel area of the west coast is an asset rather than a problem. It’s a peaceful place and since Barbados is a small island you can easily get anywhere by bus (if you’re brave and don’t mind waiting) or by taxi. Our third stay at Little Good Harbour certainly won’t be our last, so finally - a warning: this hotel spoils you for anywhere else! Read less

Stayed in Fort Suite 2, right on the beach. Listened to the sound of the waves all night. It’s a little bit of paradise.

Stayed in Fort Suite 2, right on the beach. Listened to the sound of the waves all night. It’s a little bit of paradise. There is a full kitchen but it’s next door to the Fish Pot where you can go for breakfast, lunch & dinner. I can’t speak highly enough of the manager, Javon; he goes above and beyond to look after guests and is very knowledgeable. He organised us a hire car for us which we used every day to visit other restaurants and attractions. Our housekeeper Arlene was brilliant. Recommend a visit to the East coast for lunch at sister property Atlantis Historical Inn. We have booked to return here. Thank you to everyone at Little Good Harbour for a wonderful and memorable stay x Read less

We visited as a family over February half term and stayed the 3 bed Ocean view suite. The Suite was amazing. - huge, beautiful rooms with a proper kitchen and views directly onto the beach. We also had a private back courtyard with direct access to the beach. You cannot be any closer to the ocean without actually being in it. The kids snorkelled on the beach all day watching the fish while we relaxed. We saw turtles off the beach and stingrays in the water while snorkelling off the jetty. Lovely food served daily at the Fish Pot and delicious rum punches and margaritas. All the staff were really friendly and welcoming- Javon couldn’t have been more helpful in filling up our fridge and organising taxis. The staff in the Fish Pot were absolutely lovely and made us very welcome as was Arlene who did our housekeeping. Trevor was so kind and reassuring when our daughter was stung by a skulpen fish (watch out for these, terribly painful sting - get the foot into very hot water asap). There are lots of excursions on offer if you are feeling adventurous, we went on the submarine and on a katamaran tour to swim with turtles - both highly recommend, although be prepared for a long transfer by bus and a fair bit of hanging about. Overall - a really incredible experience and can’t wait to go back Read less

After the flight from hell delayed for 3 hours on London Heathrow’s runway, we arrived much later than scheduled in Barbados, & to be told our rental car was automatic and they drive on the same side as the UK was joyful news. The checkin at Little Good Harbour was instant and so relaxed and very soothing. To be told the restaurant was waiting for us was wonderful news but we weren’t to rush. The accommodation is beautiful, far better than portrayed on the website. Spotlessly clean too. The Little Fish Pot serves excellent food in a stunning location and to wake up to an unexpected sea view on our first morning, was a lovely surprise. We live in a tiny, rural village in England and we found LGH a very peaceful and relaxing location. The beach is perfect and safe and we snorkelled and I saw the best array of flying fish ever. Special mention must go to Javon Griffith of LGH staff. We have never been to Barbados before and a friend recommended a list of restaurants: Tides, Lonestar, Paul Owens at the Beach, Sea Shed, Quattro Passi and Little Fish Pot of course and prior to our visit, Javon booked the best table at all of them to enjoy sunset followed by dinner. We also visited gardens and jungle at Hunte’s Gardens, Andromeda, Welchman’s Hall Gully and Flower Forest Gardens - all different and all stunning. This is a lovely peaceful place to stay. We highly recommend it and would definitely stay here again. If you loathe all inclusive, regimented hotels and like to stay somewhere a bit different and explore where you are staying and get under the skin of a new country by meeting people who actually live there, then this is the place for you. Thank you Little Good Harbour for an exceptional stay. Read less
