Stayed here after a weeks cruise. First time in Barbados. First impressions were good, nice and clean and a stress free check in. I don’t think you could get a better location. You have Holetown about a 15minute walk on the beach, or the main road. Bell boy Chad took our bags to room 425 on the top floor. There isn’t any lifts, but this wasn’t a problem to us, but would be for those who have mobility problems. Our room was lovely and big with a great view over the pools and gardens. There was WiFi in the restaurant which was pretty decent, but if you wanted WiFi in your room and all over the hotel, there was a supplement of $50 per week. A/C was probably the best I’ve known in any hotel anywhere in the world. The staff are all so nice and nothing is too much trouble for them, they’re a real credit to this great hotel. Food was great. As an early riser, I was pleased to see you can get a coffee in the main bar from 5am which was right up my street. Breakfast is buffet with your normal fare, lunch was also buffet, or smash and grab as Mike Justice described it. Dinner was waiter/waitress service at a real high standard. All the bar staff have extensive knowledge of anything cocktail and make anything that flicks your switch. Ours was the mud slide with extra mud! (Chocolate). The beach to the left is Sandy Lane and loved walk this beach every morning after breakfast. This beach has all manner of water sports at a supplement. But, if you go right, to the hotel water sports hut, this is all free of charge which I thought was a really nice touch. Water skiing, speed boat rides and sail boat rides, all free. There’s a couple of guy that walk the beach touting for business, ie, water sports and private tours, in previous reviews it’s been said that you can’t trust these guy, but you can take it from me you can trust them with you life, especially Steve, the short slim guy with the gift of the gab, he was a great guy who we hired for the day to take us around the island. We got to know Steve quite well over the week and really got on! I would recommend this hotel to anyone. So much so, we’ve booked to go again next year. Read less

Mixed bag here, this resort is not what i would call the Barbados i know, i have been coming to Barbados since 1982, if you were to remove the local staff and put in spanish in place thats where you would think you were. We are in our 70s and i slipped up on the 2nd night really badly hurting myself on way to dinner Chrismas Eve, the property is all levels with steps up then down then up again and we were on the ground floor with patio. The food is cooked over and over again but in various ways not what you would expect for a 5 star hotel, the room service was disgraceful, not changing our towels every day, and also not making the bed each day, and when you pay nearly £11000 you expect an excellent service. The cocktails were watered down, again i have stayed in lots of hotels in Barbados but i would never return to this one again, never befor have i had to get up at 6am to secure a sunbed, we were 24 hours with no lights they had a transformer blow, so we were on generaters for the rest of the holiday. When you first arrive the management cant do enough for you, as the days go by untill you depart so does the service, there were some people leaving and going to other hotels, our holiday was booked with Virgin so do not be fooled by their recommendations, if you are looking for a quiet holiday forget this spanish style holiday as the music is so loud you cannot sleep through it, ok for young people but not the older generation, you also have to book your dinner reservation every day befor 12 every morning, there is no beach but you can walk down to one if you wish, but no sunbeds, the reason is the property ends befor the beach, and its next to a private house wich is gaurded with high security 24/7 and they glare at you as if it belonged to them..

We did move rooms, although the first room was excellent in size and amenities. It was shaded by a large tree. The staff were very helpful with our request to move and let us pick from 3 rooms. we were very pleased with our second room. The food and drinks were plentiful and good. if you were sitting at a table with an empty glass the waiter asked you if you wanted a refill. The beach next to the holiday was very easy to access and there were plenty of water sports available. we would recommend this hotel to anyone over the age of 18. Read less

Regarding the Review “Cleanliness” you are not staying in a Five Star Resort, if you want than go and pay Sandy Lane Prices.

The Bar is frequently used and is only a beach bar, there is the Sunset Bar that you could go and use. The staff try very hard with sometimes limited facilities, though they are improving The Club all the time. I have been going for many years even when it was The Almond Beach, I have found Durwin (not Darwin) to be very professional, kind and friendly when having to deal with clients at the hotel, some nice and others more demanding. Keep doing the wonderful job you do, you are very much appreciated by many Durwin and the other staff are. They work very hard to make everyone’s holiday enjoyable. Read less

Check in quick rooms clean and comfy, lovely balcony overlooking the pool. Your first night the hotel makes your meal reservation for you after this you chose. Two restaurants different choice menus I enjoyed Enid's restaurant in the evening for a change from the day restaurant. The main restaurant does your buffet breakfast, buffet lunch then set menu for evening, there is also the beach bar where you can order snacks. I could not fault the food or choice, excellent service. Good cocktails and spirits if your a beer drinker you may struggle the hotel only has Banks on draft. Lots of sunbeds sand & pool one negative trying to find a clean one was a struggle and we did witness staff reserving some sunbeds for guests at 7:00am every morning at the pool!! Entertainment in the evening was really good, staff work very hard at this hotel. Peaceful during the day but if you enjoy water activities you can hire canoes, paddle boards or take a speed boat trip. Outside the hotel across the road you will find a few shops and if you turn left about 20 minuets walk will take you into the centre with a good selection of designer shops, bars and restaurants. I would defiantly recommend this hotel a special thanks to the hotel manager who takes an interest in his guests & all the staff including the Caribbean version of Father Christmas & young girls who put on a fabulous dance and music show for us on Christmas day.
