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.

Our room was on the first floor near the pool, we loved it. Every thing about the Sugar Bay was outstanding IMO. Staff was amazing. Shaquille, Kay, and sooo many other staff members made you feel special and they seemed appreciative that you chose to visit their resort. Food and drinks were amazing and entertainment was acceptable. The compactness of the resort made it very enjoyable as you did not have to do a lot of strenuous walking. We have visited fifteen islands in the Caribbean and this resort ranks in my top two. Read less

just returned from sugar bay this resort is very clean with its own beach front the gardens are well looked after. the staff are the friendliest and most helpful I have encountered in 20 years of going abroad the food is average with different themes each night the alcohol is typical all inclusive quality, you can gain access to the sea via the beach be aware though it is steep and there are strong waves,beach towels are supplied free of charge and can be changed as often as you like, excursions can be booked with hotel but can be pricey and cancelled at short notice your rooms are cleaned daily, there are bus stops right outside the resort where buses and taxis will ferry you about at cheap fares. the main swimming pool is just over 4ft deep with a shallow end for children there is no lifeguard at any time. there was plenty of sunbeds the best ones are by the pool. the resort supply small kayaks and paddle boards for the lagoon next to beach. there is entertainment at night and the bar closes at 11oclock we were told it was safe to go out at daytime but at night always use taxis if you go of complex overall it is a good place to stay if you just want to relax otherwise take plenty of money to pay for excursions etc. there are mosquitoes which can leave a nasty swelling take some afterbite with you also there are quite a few areas with steps that could cause problems for people with mobility issues we found the wifi to be very good as was aircon in the accommodation Read less

We stayed for 8 nights here in May and had an excellent time, would highly recommend. The hotel staff are brilliant, always helpful and polite, nothing a problem. The hotel is right on the beach and is a great view from the main restaurant at every meal. The pool isn't huge and it meant having to get out early to get a lounger in the morning, but as a backup there are loads of loungers on the beach. From there the staff come out offering drinks and snacks regularly which was great. Swimming in the sea isn't easy as a word of warning, there is a lot of sea weed currently (not the hotel's fault, they were always trying to clean up) and there were a number of rocks at the bottom of the sea so walking in is uncomfortable. The food is really good, lunches and dinners were very enjoyable, menu's were generally fresh with the odd dish carrying over into 2nd days. There are 2 specialist restaurants which you can use once per week. Umi - food quality good but portion size not massive. Sizzler - really good food and top service. They sung to us for our anniversary which was a nice touch. We used the spa for a massage which we enjoyed and very reasonably priced. The room was a good size double and was cleaned daily, bathroom had everything you need. There was also a balcony which was useful for drying clothes/swim outfits. Evening entertainment was on every evening from 8, including a movie night on the beach. Overall excellent stay and would be happy to visit again. Read less
