The hotel is set in the most wonderful peaceful location which just adds to the away from it all feel. I came away feeling fully relaxed. Surrounded by beautiful, well maintained gardens and with plenty of wildlife the Garden Suites are large, bright and airy. The daily shuttle bus take minutes to get to Speightstown and buses enable you to get out and about and explore Barbados at it's best . Alternatively you could hire a car for a couple of days and do so at your own pace. Apart from one less than friendly member of bar staff who didn't appear to want to be there and one quite stern receptionist the staff are absolutely amazing: namely Paulette, Kim, Kareen, Michelle, Rashidi, Nikita, Leo, Tamisha, Mitilene and her wonderful housekeeping staff and Tremayne and Nicholas the shuttle drivers. Not forgetting April who gives the most amazing massages and Luvall who brings you fresh coconuts. They all went out of their way to ensure that you had the best time possible. I would return in a heartbeat. Read less

Great food at all times, bbq chicken by the pool was amazing. Great to see the Green Monkeys walking through the woods. Didn’t give it 5 stars as we had no hot water to shower with for last 2 days and although we could use another room to go and shower, they never offered a room exchange. Read less

Lovely, very laid back hotel. Aimed at the more senior visitor. A bit too quiet for us but the staff were so friendly! Definitely advise you do the free turtle and shipwreck glass bottomed boat. If you do the 10am one you are absolutely guaranteed to see and be able to touch the turtles. Amazing experience!! Harrison’s cave is a good visit too.

This is by no means a negative review. This is a great hotel in a great location with well tendered grounds. Great food and drinks and most importantly great staff. After a long journey we were met by familiar faces with a cold flannel and more importantly the famous rum punch. This is our 5th visit and did seem to lack the WOW factor we have previously experienced. Think being returning guests you are always comparing previous visits. Just a few things that niggled us this year. On occasions we repeatedly had to reorder tea and coffee at breakfast and again wine at lunch and dinner. One morning breakfast was like a 80’s karaoke and we had to request the volume was reduced so we could have a conversation. Sugar cane relies on its staff to continue the family feel we have come to enjoy, unfortunately some new staff seem to see this as more of a job and not about the customer experience. These are my views and others returnees and new guests may think differently. Shout out to Tameisha, Gregory, Rishidi and Rosedhi who went above and beyond and also Pool guy Kevin who made sure or sun beds were in place! Rooms were serviced daily with towels changed every two days and bedding on the 3rd Food was again a mix of a la carte and buffet for evening dinner. Menu for lunch with the occasional option of a barbecue. Breakfast was also buffet style. I do not rule out a return to this hotel as it has become our happy place but think a break is in order next year. Read less

Just returned (11th May) from 12 day stay at this wonderful resort. It was our 3rd trip and our friend’s 4th, so this should tell you how highly we rate the resort. Another great stay, helped by the very friendly staff especially, Gregory, David, Nikita and Rashadi to name a few. A must visit resort if you want a quiet relaxing holiday
