Today we celebrate our 1st wedding anniversary and look back on the best holiday experience ever 19.2.2020. It has been a rough year with covid and feels like a lifetime ago but we have the memories. From the day we checked in to South Beach we knew the holiday and wedding was going to be the best experience. Our friends and family who stayed and visited the hotel could not stop talking about it when we got back home. All of the staff were amazing, welcoming and treated us as if we had known them for years. The rooms were great, food & drink was so nice, we all looked forward to breakfast! We had the pleasure of staying in the penthouse suite which was out of this world. If you are looking for somewhere to stay post the pandemic, lockdowns etc, I highly recommend this hotel. We cannot wait to get back there. Thank you South Beach family for giving us the best time and memories ❤️ Read less

I arrived at the south beach hotel in Barbados during quarantine, I still cannot believe the level of service I received although I had to mandatory stay in my room until second negative Covid test result. Breakfast was delivered, front desk staff constantly checked in to make sure that I was ok. They offered grocery shopping and even picked up my favorite Cheffette meal. I will definitely use this beautiful hotel again, and tell my friends and family also. It is a great choice, service is excellent and the location is by a beautiful beach, and you are close to supermarkets and Bridgetown so I’ll advice anyone to book their accommodations there.

An amazing hotel, with generous sized rooms and welcoming staff. Very clean and well kept as well as keeping up with Covid-19 protocols. Breakfast options varied so there was a good amount to choose from. Ideal location near restaurants that fit any budget and directly across from the beach. Love it!
