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 gave this hotel 3 out of 5 because of the hotel room, I had a hard time locking the door as I was coming and going, I guess that might be just me but anyway the room itself was a nice size and very comfortable, the restaurant was very small and only serviced breakfast and lunch, the patio area was ok, nothing great.

I gave this hotel 3 out of 5 because of the hotel room, I had a hard time locking the door as I was coming and going, I guess that might be just me but anyway the room itself was a nice size and very comfortable, the restaurant was very small and only serviced breakfast and lunch, the patio area was ok, nothing great. I found myself eating next door at the South Gap where the food was better and slightly cheaper. Now the mean reason for my visit was Cropover. Where do I begin, it was Fabulous. I went by myself and had a time of my life. Yes yes yes it is safe to go to Barbados, even for single women. Just be smart and wise. The people their are sooo helpful and friendly I can't wait to go back. Read less

Our Family stayed in one of the “Deluxe Ocean Front Studios” for 2 weeks. Room was of good size and well equipped\maintained. Serviced daily by extremely cheerful\friendly Cleaning Staff (“Mavis” was brilliant). Grounds also well maintained with an adequate sized Pool. Location of the Hotel is also very good as on exiting left from the building you have the busier part of “St Lawrence Gap” (Restaurants, Bars ec – Recommend “Crave” and “Café Soul”) and to the right it is quieter but still with a good offering of Bars and Restaurants (Recommend “Pronto” and “Daddy’s Place”). The people of Barbados are extremely friendly, it is very safe both at night and day to go exploring the island. On exiting the “Rostrevor” to the right, across from “Pure Ocean” is a Tour Excursion Kiosk that is of good value with a wide selection of Trips (Would highly recommend the Island Jeep Safari Tour and the Kayak Boat Cruse). Only criticism of the “Rostrevor” is that the prices at the Pool Bar for Refreshments are high compared to other places in the area (a discounted price for those staying at the Rostrevor would be welcomed). Other than that we would highly recommend the “Rostrevor” and hope that one day our Family will visit again. Read less

Arrived Tues 16 July, departed Wed 25 July, very clean, staff very friendly and helpful, kitchen had everything we needed, daily maid, pool very clean, the only problem was there is no beach, the nearest is about 8 minute walk, but the beach is great and safe for children, will definitely go back.

The staff is really Accomodative. I booked through a third party online website but the hotel Staff didn’t received the proper information. They got my information about our arrival on the day I was supposed to check out. However the staff was Accommodative. Really appreciated.

Cozy, charming hotel in the heart of The Gap on the South coast of Barbados. The staff is very friendly and the manager, Robyn is always accommodating and eager to please and ensure we were enjoying our vacation. Went with a group of 24 friends and they took care of us wonderfully. The Gap where the hotel is located is a hotbed of restaurants, bars and nightclubs on the island and felt extremely safe at all times and everything we needed was in short walking distance. We will definitely be back! Read less
