Sugar Bay Barbados

Barbados, Caribbean

The hotel

The all inclusive Sugar Bay Barbados offers a delightful holiday base with an array of activities, four fantastic restaurants, tranquil Caribbean waters in a protected lagoon, and with Bridgetown only a 10-minute drive away, you will be spoilt for choice with things to do and see! Perfect for couples, friends and families, Sugar Bay oozes boho-chic style and radiates a serene atmosphere allowing you to completely unwind in paradise. Guest rooms suit all types of holidaymakers with spacious family suites ideal for larger groups, all of which have great views of the ocean, the pool or the lush, green gardens. Being just a few metres from the calmest seas of the south coast, water sports are very much the order of the day with plenty available. Aside from taking a swim in the cool Caribbean Sea, there are also two swimming pools to laze by and a fitness centre for enthusiasts. Otherwise, head to Karma Spa for a spot of well-deserved pampering. Whilst the adults are at play, the kids have their very own children’s club, offering beach games, competitions and opportunities for exploring. Teens aren’t left out; they can hang together in the clubhouse, an adult no-go area! Dining is a joy, as Sugar Bay Barbados boasts more dining options than most hotels in Barbados! There is a tantalising selection of restaurants to choose from, each utilising the freshest produce from land and sea.

We booked this holiday very last minute due to unplanned circumstances of the downfall of Thomas Cook, meaning to go to Mexico and I must say we are 100% going to be returning. There was 4 of us in total including me, my boyfriend, brother in law and his partner. During our stay at this lovely resort we have enjoyed every single minute, but 3 staff in particular (Ramario, Andre & Barry) have made this stay feel like home and gone that extra mile. They have welcomed us all so much and we have built a good friendship with these guys too, we’ve had lots of good laughs and even going to keep in touch. The food at the hotel is amazing every single day, the breakfast was spot on and a variety of different stuff every day for lunch and dinner so you’re not getting bored of the same thing. We enjoyed all the entertainment at the hotel, better than any hotel we’ve been to before which made it enjoyable to be in the hotel 24/7. Both UMI & Steak restaurants are out of this world. The rooms are clean and the beds are comfy, the beach is beautiful and overall such a great place. It’s been an absolute pleasure and we will see you again soon Sugar Bay.. Again big thanks to the 3 amazing staff for making it so special for us. Read less

Had a fantastic 10 day stay here for our honeymoon. The people of Barbados are so nice including all the staff at Sugar Bay they made the stay 10/10, incredibly polite and fun they make sure you are well looked after. The food at Sugar Bay is the best food we have ever eaten, every day for breakfast/lunch/tea we were impressed with every meal. If you are looking for somewhere to relax this is the place. The beach is fantastic with a sports/activities hut where you can use snorkels, paddle boards and kayak’s, the guys that work in the hut and look after the beach are so helpful and fun, they make you feel so welcome and relaxed and deserve a lot of credit, as do all the staff at Sugar Bay. The hotel is not self service for drinks you are served during meals by staff and can also visit a bar to order drinks - they will make you any cocktail you like. We will be revisiting in the future no doubt, a place we will not forget. Read less

My husband and I have just returned from Sugar Bay where we chose to stay in a Deluxe Ocean View Room which was a good choice. The room was just as expected and the hotel is in a stunning location. However, the resort is badly let down by the poor attitude of many of the staff members. Many of the reception staff are very surly and could do with some customer service training. We stayed for seven nights, on three separate days we did not have any hot water (we were told yesterday that there is a known problem with the hot water system); on two separate days we returned to our room to find it had not been serviced at all (once at 1.00p.m. and the next time at 4.00p.m.) When we reported it we were asked if we had left our "Do Not Disturb" sign on the door which we did not.Our bed linen was not changed at all during our stay, despite the information folder stating that it would be changed every three days. The service in the restaurant and bar by some members of staff was very second rate - on many occasions we had to ask repeatedly for our drinks order. As I said at the start of my review, the hotel is beautiful but our experience over the last seven days was extremely disappointing. It is an expensive resort but the level of service offered does not come anywhere near the service we have received at other all-inclusive Caribbean resorts. Read less

We stayed for a week end of October beginning of November. Our arrival was greeted with friendly reception staff a rum punch and towel. Perfect I was slightly disappointed with our room (402) which was difficult for us and the porter to reach with our luggage, and the corridor leading up to it was dark and slightly damp smelling The room was very clean and comfortable but I wished I'd booked an ocean room and a bigger room for the kids, once the sofa bed and rollaway bed were out there wasn't much space for them and little storage space for their clothes. That said, we spent little time there, sleeping and showering. The thing that make this hotel stand out from other all inclusive hotels I have visited is the quality of the food and staff. The small but plentiful buffet was different every day with gorgeous flavours, there was plenty of choice for everyone and it was great to see. Colins lunch time bar also great, really friendly staff and god food. Andrea on the egg station made my breakfast most mornings with a cheery smile. All of the bar staff were lovely and accommodating, my kids loved the fruit punch, racking up about 100 between them over the week! Personally I preferred the lovely sparkling wine! The pool was good, we visited at half term and my kids made friends easily. The beach is beautiful, plenty of loungers not crowded and good service. Highlights included rescuing baby turtles who hatched and the sunsets, Halloween party & a movie on the beach Read less
