Rostrevor Apartment Hotel

Barbados, Caribbean

The hotel

Oozing island charm, this bijou beauty has just 79 rooms but packs in plenty of reasons as to why it deserves a visit. Inspired by its stunning waterfront location, just a stroll from the heart of St Lawrence Gap with its great bars, restaurants and nightlife, Rostrevor Apartment Hotel features just enough turquoise touches to remind you the ocean’s right outside — in fact, every guest room looks out over it. If you want to get even closer, the swimming pool sits a few mere metres from the ocean, on a bluff-like perch that creates absorbing views as you swim and sunbathe. An equally alluring sunbathing spot, the secluded sands of Rostrevor Beach fringe the hotel. The pool’s paired with one of the hotel’s two eateries, the Almond Tree Pool Bar, so you can dine in casual comfort during the day, before heading to the other restaurant, The Harlequin, for International food with Caribbean flair for a delicious evening meal.

If I'm not staying at an all inclusive hotel, I opt for one that has a kitchenette. This hotel fit the bill with large clean rooms, great service and ocean views. It's conveniently located about twenty minutes from the airport and close to all the amenities in the vibrant St Lawrence area.

I’ve stayed at Rostrevor a few times and have just returned from a 2 week break there. I stayed in the newer block and found the room to be very spacious and had everything I needed. Could hear a bit of noise at night but it’s on one of the most lively streets in Barbados so it’s to be expected. I can’t really fault the staff either especially putting a complimentary bottle of wine in my room for a birthday. This hotel offer good value for money but I unfortunately won’t be returning :( This is solely due to the fact I like nothing more than to lie on a sunbed whilst on holiday and to achieve this involved being awake before the birds!! On my first day I came down at 7am to find all beds with umbrellas reserved!! 7am!! It soon became apparent that if you wanted a bed you had to be down with towels at 6am. I really think the hotel need to get a hold of this as the selfish people who did this need to be stopped, it’s not fair on the rest of the guests who actually want to have a rest and enjoy the facilities. I’d suggest a lockdown of the pool area until 8am to make it fair for everyone. Other than this issue I have no complaints. Read less

We chose the Rostrevor for our first trip to Barbados and what a great choice it turned out to be. Once we were shown to our room, the wow factor was immediate, the view from the balcony was amazing!!! Lovely large rooms which were kept spotlessly clean by the hardworking staff, as was the rest of the hotel and outside areas. We found all staff at the hotel extremely friendly and helpful. Good size kitchen area in the room with 2 ring gas hob, toaster, microwave, fridge with small freezer compartment and a perfectly adequate supply of pans, crockery and cutlery. The hotel is in a great central location in St Lawrence with plenty of bars/restaurants to choose from. There is also Dover beach and Worthing beach within a 10 minute walk. I have read many reviews which mention the noise at night from local bars etc. While this is true, we found that by closing the outside vents in the shower area and closing the bathroom door, this cancelled out the majority of the noise and didn’t disturb our sleep. This hotel is great value for money which we could not fault in any way. After we arrived home, we immediately booked to return next January!!! Read less
