We arrived at this hotel after an 8 hour flight feeling tired, but was greeted with a warm, relaxed smile at reception and an offering of a cold towel and a rum punch – welcome to Barbados!! Check in was easy and the staff made a dinner reservation for us and showed us the room.
We originally booked a basic room (which mentions possible noise from the nearby bars) but I think we might have been upgraded as we were looking directly over the pool and had a sea view. The room was spacious and clean – everything you’d expect.
Being a small hotel, we felt the choice of food at breakfast and on buffet days was a little limited. On normal days the lunch and dinner menus were varied and it was usually hard to decide on what to order! The starters were small – and I mean small. It was often more like a canapé than a starter, eaten within about 90 seconds. However, the mains were ample, as was desert, leaving you feeling satisfied overall.
The manager was lovely – she made so much effort to speak to all guests during their stay.
The beach is small and the sun beds soon disappear (or rather, get reserved with towels). We took the free catamaran trip which was good.
We would return here again. (By the way, the taxi from the airport is $30USD.)
