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 guestroom 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.

I was really surprised when we arrived at the Rostrevor because it is classed as a budget hotel in the gap but it really did not seem like that. It had a new reception area that looks really modern and fresh. We stayed in room 409 and the decor and furnishings were better than what you would expect from a budget hotel. Bed was comfy, air con worked perfectly and the room was cleaned every day to a high standard. The best thing about this hotel is that every room has a stunning view of the sea. Only downside is the noise from the bars on the gap. We had shut our bathroom door and on a couple of nights, mainly weekends, all you could hear was the screeching of people on the karaoke. We do like to go out and enjoy ourselves and have a good drink but when the noise goes on until 5am it can get a little frustrating. Maybe the hotel needs to invest in soundproofing the rooms so that the customers can have a better nights sleep. Other than that a great hotel. Read less

I had a lovely time there. The staff is very friendly and the rooms are clean and comfortable. The only issue I had with the room was the door with rust but it did not affect the operation of same. The view is spectacular and there is access to the beach and a pool. There is also a restaurant which includes a bar.
