Sea Breeze Beach House by Ocean Hotels

Barbados, Caribbean

The hotel

Little VIP touches make a stay at the Sea Breeze Beach House feel all the more special. As you sink into a sun lounger, the pool and beach attendants serve cold drinks, mist you with a refreshing spritzer, and offer delicious sorbet tasters. Its 3-acre gardens and 1,000 ft stretch of silky white sands create a sense of space, while Bajan accents like palm trees, beachside dining, and rum-infused treats create a sense of island living. Families and couples can enjoy their own zones, with a space just for grownups featuring a pool, Jacuzzis and oversized loungers — a brilliant break from the buzz around the family and lap pools. Even the beach caters for all, with a lively water sports stretch and a more peaceful patch. The new luxury suites are wonderfully spacious, have beautiful ocean views and extra amenities, and with two, three and four bedroom options available, you can have an All Inclusive experience with a 'villa' feel. Whether à la carte or one of the themed buffet evenings you'll love the food, and we recommend that you don't miss the opportunity to get the sand between your toes at the 'Shoes Optional' Beach BBQ held on Sundays.

The hotel is nice and the staff is extremely friendly, but the food is average for what you pay. The beach front views are terrific and the hotel is very clean. The activities were hit or miss. Sometimes they just didn't happen. The area where hotel is located is walking friendly to St Lawrence Gap and Oistins.

As a first time visitor to Barbados (and the Caribbean) I obviously had certain expectations based on what I had seen and heard, sun, sea (blue) and sand (white), I wasn’t disappointed and the Sea Breeze hotel did not disappoint either! We had a luxury ocean view junior suite, these rooms are virtually brand new with a queen size bed and a fold out bed for the kids. The room was spacious, modern, clean and the decor perfectly matched the surroundings, laid back, relaxing with an ocean overview. There was a wooden floor, much easier to keep clean than carpets, a decent size balcony which directly overlooked the beach and gave fantastic views out to sea. The bathroom was huge with a walk in shower, very modern, there was a 55” wall mounted TV in the main room and the room was tidied and cleaned to a high standard on a daily basis. We also had a mini bar consisting of local beers, branded spirits and water/soft drinks. Whatever was consumed was replaced exactly the following day, a nice bonus and something I was not aware of when booking the room! There are a couple of a la carte restaurants as well as a buffet style one at the Sea Breeze, you have to ensure you have a reservation for whichever one you choose, usually done at breakfast. We found the food to be excellent whichever option we choose, really good quality with lots of choice, the buffet is relatively small and could get quite busy at times with some of the dishes running out quite quickly. To the hotels credit if a dish did run out then it was not long before it was replaced so despite the limitations on the size of the buffet area the hotel did a great job ensuring there was always adequate food to cater for everyone. I really cannot speak highly enough of the food, in the two weeks we stayed I did not have a single bad meal and there was always something new to try. As it is an all inclusive hotel then drinks our obviously offered with your meals, unlike other all inclusive resorts I noticed the wine options were branded wines around the £8/£10 mark and were poured from the bottle, a small point but I thought it it added to the ‘quality’ aspect of the hotel. The staff would also make up a non alcoholic cocktail for the kids at lunch or dinner which they loved and I thought this was a nice touch as well. Obviously one of the main benefits of this hotel (clue is in its name) is its proximity to the sea. Walking out of the main restaurant you literally walk on to the beach which is a huge stretch of white sand book marked by an outcrop of boulders at either end so it is exclusively for hotel guests, the sea is deep blue, warm (excellent for snorkelling) and there are plenty of fish to see. I suppose you have these expectations if you have never visited the Caribbean before of white sand, warm blue sea and sunshine and it was exactly that, I have never spent so much time in the sea on any holiday before, it was fantastic. There are loads of activities that the hotel provide to help you further enjoy your time from beach cricket for the kids (and adults!) kayak hire, rides on jet skis etc. We never tired of being in and around the water or on the beach. If sea and sand are not to your liking then the hotel also has a few swimming pools, one of them an adults only one. The sun beds around the main pool would be ‘reserved’ quite quickly of a morning and it would not be uncommon for there to be none left by around 9am so something to bear in mind, the main pool also could get a little crowded at times as it is not the biggest swimming pool you will ever see, thankfully there is a third pool a little bit more suited if you wanted to swim lengths but again this was not always possible due to how many people where using it. We found all the staff at the Sea Breeze extremely helpful and polite and they where more than prepared to share their knowledge of the island with you and would help with advice if you where planning any trips away from the hotel, it is not a huge hotel which I really liked so there was almost a family feel to how it was run and I got the sense the staff where proud of what they delivered. All in all an excellent stay, the two weeks flew by and I will definitely be looking to return at some point. Read less

A superb resort in a good location with great food. It is the ideal place to relax and chill out. the accommodation was excellent. We stayed in a beach front junior suite which had a large balcony where we could sit, away from the direct sunlight, and watch the world go by.

We travelled as two families a party of 10 in May 2019. A goodbye holiday to our eldest son who was leaving the UK to live in Australia. The welcome at reception was stern and not overly friendly. The rooms were nice not fabulous but ok and clean. Travelling with children we were placed next to the adults only pool. Literally next to. Dinner on the first night set the tone for the entire holiday, we weren't allowed to dine together as a party. Quite sternly we were told NO. Then the next night we witnessed a group of 10 eating together and was told you had to ask? The were no formal rules just depended on the mood of the maitre'd. This yes/no policy continued for the 10 nights.... The "watersports" were two catamarans. Very basic for a beach resort. Sunbeds were reserved with towels very early morning by guests. Few sunbeds around a very small pool. There were two huge wedding parties staying, who dominated the bar area and poolside. Everything in the hotel was geared around them. Then another "day"wedding was held which closed one of restaurants for the evening as well as the two wedding parties. Some of the staff were phenomenal , really engaging funny and loved their job. Thank you. Some of the staff were a disgrace, rude and arrogant which is a total shame . The last evening i sat down in the restaurant in tears after the lady maitre'd was rude. So i explained this had totally ruined my holiday. She didn't care. After we had finished our meal (separately) again, she apologised and said she hoped it hadn't ruined our 10 night holiday??? I have no logic for this. I wrote to the hotel and received no reply. Filled in their feedback questionnaire naming the fantastic staff and the really not so fantastic staff . received nothing from the hotel. Genuinely, I don't feel they care about their guests. There are plenty of amazing hotels in Barbados. Save your money genuinely this isn't one of them. If i can save you from this place taking the time to write this review has been worth it!! Read less

We had a wonderful family holiday at Sea Breeze and it was definitely one of our best holidays. The location is stunning and all our needs were met. We look forward to returning some day soon and I highly recommend it.
