Time Out Hotel

Barbados, Caribbean

The hotel

Ideally located on the south coast of Barbados, in the vibrant St. Lawrence Gap area, is the budget-friendly Time Out Hotel. Famed for its prime location you are steps away from the beautiful Dover Beach and next to Dover playing field. Great if you fancy getting involved in a game of football with the locals or join in with any festivities during your holiday. Offering 76 rooms you'll also find a bar, a restaurant and a pool on the property but what really impresses us is the friendly service and the genuine island warmth the minute you walk through the door.

Timeout hotel is very conveniently positioned close to Dover beach, our room was on 3rd floor and was spacious, adequately furnished and spotless. It had a small balcony that overlooked the Dover recreation ground and had views of Dover beach to our left. This is a very popular and busy part of the St Lawrence Gap area and tended to be quite noisy well into the evening. The hotel staff were friendly and helpful. and the swimming pool area had adequate sun beds and seating. The restaurant is run as a separate entity to the hotel and the standard continental breakfast offered in the bed & breakfast price was adequate but limited, on 3 of the 7 days of our stay the only fruit available was apples, yogurt or boiled eggs would improve the menu. The evening meals offered were reasonable. I would visit this hotel again. Read less

Over all the hotel and our rooms were very good, The only negative aspect was the breakfast, as we felt we needed a bit more choice in food and it did not state whether the breakfast was continental or hot buffet on the website.

I manage to get the rest I need and I would come back again. Probably for a longer stay. Read less

This was our second stay at Time Out and it didn't disappoint. The hotel has had a refurbishment since our first stay and looks very fresh and clean. We were in a deluxe room (No 203) which is lovely and spacious with a king size bed, a large bathroom, plenty of storage space and hangers. There is a decent size fridge and a kettle with tea & coffee sachets provided. The room overlooks the playing field on the side of the hotel but is away from the bar area so relatively quiet. Very effective air co. A nice balcony to sit on, which gets afternoon sunshine, and watch the world go by. We had a pool view room last time which didn't get any sun at all. Housekeeping do a great job keeping the rooms and public areas clean and tidy. The pool area and gardens are well maintained and there are plenty of sun loungers and chairs available. We had continental breakfast as part of our package which is "functional" and consists of porridge / cereal, toast with jam / marmalade, a cake and a piece of fruit. You can purchase cooked items but we didn't bother. We didn't experience any problems but the staff were able to answer any queries we had and were most accommodating on our last day in providing a courtesy room in which to shower / change before our evening flight home. The location of the hotel is perfect - away from noise of The Gap but easy to walk to it, a step away from the fabulous beach and plenty of lovely places to eat on the doorstep. I would recommend this hotel to anyone looking for a laid back, easy holiday in the sunshine oh and if you go please feed the lovely little cat who sits so patiently by the bin in the garden!
