Treasure Beach by Elegant Hotels

Barbados, Caribbean

The hotel

There’s no denying Barbados’s Platinum West Coast is a magnet for beach lovers – so it’s rare to find a little sanctuary along its crowd-pulling sands that promises total serenity. Cue Treasure Beach by Elegant Hotels. This all suite, all-inclusive, boutique hotel focuses on epicurean and the arts featuring a different culinary journey on each night of your stay led by an award winning chef. You can immerse yourself in the Barbadian culture by touring local galleries and museums with a complimentary Treasure Art Crawl. With a fabulous welcome cocktail upon arrival, you can indulge in all-day a la carte dining, premium drinks and a Sunset Cocktail Hour featuring a different bar offering every evening. Choose from 34 one bedroom or deluxe suites all outfitted in local and regional art, immersing you in modern, local culture. Of course this is the Caribbean, so they’ve added a Beach and Pool Ambassador Service for those lazy island days. You can also hop on the free water taxi to sister properties, with more than 15 restaurants and bars, or simply ‘stay in’ to enjoy Treasure Beach’s gourmet gastronomy of Tapestry restaurant.

Service extremely slow in restaurant with a very limited choice of food usually 3 main courses and 3 desserts for lunch and dinner.On one Sunday lunch and dinner menus exactly the same this is not acceptable.Bar service hit or miss on one occasion barman made cocktails near beach and left bar unattended.Breakfast took usually 45minutes to an hour and one person took the order for coffee etc and another for the food, why not have one person for both.Sunbeds reserved by 5 or 6am so none left by 7am inadequate number for hotel particularly when guests from other hotels in the Elegant chain visited. Very heavy shower one day caused flooding in rooms and made the swimming pool unusable for 3 or 4 days this did not happen in the sister hotel next door. This is supposed to be Elegant's flagship hotel but by talking to visiting guests from the group this was not the case. The hotel needs much refurbishment as staircases are in a very bad and dangerous state particularly when wet. This hotel is NOT suitable for the all inclusive package. Entertainment although advertised as ;ow key was virtually non existent. I regret I would not recommend this hotel. Read less

Just got home from a lovely 10 day stay at Treasure Beach. Staff were all so friendly, especially Tara who helped with restaurant bookings and made sure to check I was ok once she found out I was 24 weeks pregnant! Food was a great quality every day although sometimes repetitive. Lovely, relaxed pool, helped by the smallness of the hotel and other very friendly hotel guests. Rooms were very nice although small things could’ve been done to make them better - fresh lick of paint, our sinks and bath had no plugs, I also noticed my wall plug socket was barely hanging on so that was a concern. It would also be helpful if the cleaners didn’t leave the doors wide open whilst cleaning the rooms, whilst I know this may be because of Covid, it meant the room was open to mosquitos! Overall a fantastic experience and I would return again. Read less

So this was a holiday booked by my wife for my 60th birthday and the pictures plus reviews sounded great. My wife had e-mailed the hotel to let them know it was a special birthday to which they e mailed back saying they would sort it. They didnt do anything to make it memorable . So first let down. The room was ok but the bathroom was horrible dirty shower cracked tiles and the worst grouting i have ever seen (see Photos). The rest of the room was fine rather than good, with white painted breeze blocks instead of plaster. The walk up to the room was grim again see photos. The food was good quality but very repetitive , 3 starters, 3 mains and 3 puddings. The same menu was repeated every 2 or 3 days so on a 2 week stay it was not great. The lack of sunbeds is a problem which was made worse by people from the Tamarind next door taking quite a few. We did enjoy our stay despite the problems but its no way a 4 star hotel maybe a 2 star plus at best. Think before you book ? The pictures on the Tui page are really old. Read less

Warm welcome on arrival, room nice and comfortable. Shower a trickle! Whole resort could do with a refresh, everything showing signs of tiredness. Food was good with different options daily, although the dessert menu was the same every night, which would not have been good if staying longer than 3 nights.

Warm welcome on arrival, room nice and comfortable. Shower a trickle! Whole resort could do with a refresh, everything showing signs of tiredness. Food was good with different options daily, although the dessert menu was the same every night, which would not have been good if staying longer than 3 nights. Insufficient tables for outside dining and indoor dining pretty soulless. Staff very friendly and overall good service. Everything smooth if you followed the process but deviating from it tended to cause chaos or service became slow. For example I requested 2 starters instead of a main course, but got one starter at the same time as my husband's starter and then the 2nd with his main. I don't consider this a difficult request but there was no understanding of how to manage it! Usual issue with people reserving beds and the notice advising not to, not being enforced. Slow to receive clean beach towels each day. Poor quality wine and spirits, which tends to be the case with all inclusive but no option to purchase better quality choices. Overall okay but we were glad to have only booked 3 nights and unlikely to return. Read less
