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.

Visited for a week. Made a direct booking which was simple and had good communication with the management team during this process. Good value for money. On arrival lovely front desk staff and welcome. Easy online check in system. There are no lifts which was a daily inconvenience (luggage assistance provided upstairs on arrival and departure by the pleasant and helpful Joe). The pool view room with balcony was a good size with a fridge and kettle ( no microwave in room but there is a communal one on the ground floor for guest use). Fair size bathroom. A really lovely and clean pool area with plenty of seating and umbrellas (but mosquitos prevented us making full use of that area) The hotel does not have a restaurant as such but The Amigos (The Sporting Pig) is adjacent but independently run. Staff we met were always courteous. It was a quiet time in Barbados and not many guests due to the pandemic but had a comfortable stay. Beach is literally just across the road. Read less

This will be our 3rd visit to Time Out Hotel and love everything about it, from the Reception Staff, all the cleaners and porters who can’t do enough for you and especially Alicia Farmer the manager of the Hotel, who always makes time to chat to you and make sure you are enjoying yourself.

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.
