Friendly service. Clean rooms. Management upgraded our room but was reluctant to assist us in finding reservation for New Year's eve outside of the hotel which held its own event. With a little effort we secured a reservation at Champers on our own. Friendly staff but not always the most competent. Clean rooms but the windows are missing mosquito screens which are absolutely necessary. Internet extremely slow and the signal rarely reached the room. In summary, 5 star prices for 3.5 star quality.
Friendly staff, and clean comfortable room. Only one working elevator, and diminishing towels. Every day, housekeeping would take my used towels and not replace them. By the third day, I had 2 bath towels and no hand towels. Not a big problem, just a minor inconvenience. I'm sure if I had requested them they would have brought them.
My family and I stayed at the Radisson for four nights. It was a memorable experience. Hotel is very clean and the beach beautiful. Staff extremely helpful and friendly. The Bartender, Jermaine did an excellent job with the drinks and he is great eye candy (lol). Our Waiter at breakfast, Selwyn was happy to share information and directions to difference places on the Island as he kept the coffee flowing. Wonderful experience and I am glad we chose Radisson Aquatica Resort. Retel It was a little too quiet for us in the evenings. Maybe a couple of nights per week they should offer some type of entertainment or have a beach party. Enjoyed the breakfast, but a wider variety of items would be nice.
Great access to beach. Staff were friendly and welcoming. Managers Monday evening happy hour provided a chance to meet other guests. Overall a very enjoyable stay. More choice for meals.
After a long day of travel, we arrived at the hotel and they didn't even have our reservation. We talked to the front desk woman for about 20 mins and finally she gave us a room. Upon checking out the next morning, the front desk guy wanted to charge us more than we had already been charged for the room on the website. I clearly explained to him that we had already pains but he said he needed to charge us. I called kayak and they talked to him and figured things out. I don't feel like I should have to be calling your website to straighten everything out. You should have sent our reservation over and we shouldn't have had a problem. Luckily my phone worked because otherwise I wouldn't have been able to call. This mistake has basically made me not want to ever use your website for anything ever again.
Work and renovations all over - dust and noise Work and renovations all over - dust and noise
I was really impressed with the location. The beach was beautiful and at the time we were there we could always find a great spot to hang out. Additionally, it was close to catch a bus which was our favorite mode of transportation (we took the bus most days since it was only a dollar). The staff was great and gave great suggestions on things to do, restaurants, and directions. We had dinner in the hotel one evening and it was pretty good. I wish they had more of a selection at breakfast.
Upon arrival, there was no room for us. The hotel was overbooked, First time experience this, Waited until they sent us off to the Marriott Hotel which was awful. Another 2 hours waited in Marriott lobby with my 12 year old until I was checked in. That's 6.30 p.m. They put us in room where the sheets stinks and cooler above us vibrate the room whole night. I asked to be changed, Marriott said they don't have any more rooms available. Sleepless night for me & my son. The next day, went back Radisson Aquatica, had to wait until after 3.p.m. to be checked in. The staff was really nice, but nice doesn't work when they overbooked their hotel and got us so stressed out, didn't even consider this a vacation. Also my son got stuck in one of the elevators, it was really scary, they had to pull him out between the floors. Radisson promised the reimbursed 1 night stay, please contact them for my refund.
Barbados is one of the best islands in the Caribbean and the location of the Radisson couldn't be on a more beautiful beach! The staff is very kind and helpful. The price is very reasonable. Highly recommend!
The staff was very accommodating. The location was great, they have one of the best beaches on the island in my opinion. I see this hotel becoming a five star hotel within a year once they complete the renovations. There is a nightclub in a walking distance and also a nightclub district within a short taxi ride. The food was good at the the hotel's restaurant as well. There are other close locations to eat as well. I recommend everyone try the fish, egg and cheese sandwich sold at a nice stand located next to the surfing shop.
My wife and I stayed here May 2009. We upgraded to an ocean front deluxe room but probably should have saved the money. Rooms are not any bigger than the standard, the view is better, just make sure that you get a second or third floor room. The bushes on the bottom floor block everything. We had problems with the bathroom electrical outlet, the cold water knob in the shower/tub was very hard to turn and the hot water did not regulate correctly. The shower Water pressure was very low. Also, there was a very bad smell in one of the closets (something rotted). The electrical outlet was fixed on our third night but the water regulation was not fixed, even after talking to the manager. The reception staff in the lobby are very unfriendly and always on the offensive. Service in the restraunts is very slow expect to be there 2 to 3 hours. One night people were sitting for hours and were never served because of a staffing issue. People complained and recieved free drinks. We went somewhe...
The location was perfect, overlooking a beautiful beach with plenty of nearby bars and restaurants. The room was very clean and well maintained throughout our stay. The staff was friendly and fast to help with any needs. The food was excellent, with a wide variety of menu choices throughout the week. When visiting Barbados next time, I will definitely stay at Tamarind Cove again.
Tamarind is located on the fashionable West Coast of Barbados. It has a lovely beach with good facilities. The property is in excellent condition with nicely decorated rooms and up-to-date bathrooms. The restaurants serve a variety of well-prepared foods. There are three pools, but these are a bit small. The staff is very attentive and friendly. Overall, a superior choice among many good hotels in Barbados.
Our stay was Sept 19-23 2012. We stayed in room 337. Upon pulling up to the property I was not impressed. From the outside it looks a little raggedy. The inside looks much better than the outside! Check-in was easy, they offer a welcome Rum punch and a cold towel to cool you down(mine smelled weird so I didnt use it). The room was wonderful. It looks as if the room was renovated but you can tell overall it is an older building. No elevator. The room was a nice size, nice size bed, large balcony overlooking the pool area. Great space to sit out. The bathroom was a decent size, I didnt really understand the tub/shower door (when you take a shower water goes everywhere.) The included water sports were a great addition! Water skiing was fun! The included breakfast was also great. Some of the food changed everyday but for the most part they always had the omelet station, fruit, pancakes, bacon/sausage and breads/pastries. Wonderful way to start the day off! I just wish breakfast started ear...
The newly renovated hotel is just perfect. The rooms are spacious and very clean and comfortable. The bar and restaurant areas are also great, and the food was spectacular. For anyone traveling with teens, this is the only place to stay. The teen club was so cool, I wanted to stay in there and hang out. The level of service and attention was out of this world. They really make everyone who checks in feel like a VIP with the service, friendliness and extra specials in the room. I recommend this to anyone- single travelers, family, couples. The beach was beautiful and it is right next door to Daphne's restaurant and The House (which is also amazing). If you stay here, you will have an amazing vacation.
We just got back from Tamarind after a 7 day stay. Firstly, the grounds are amazing and the entire staff were very friendly. I gave this a 4 because the room was nice , but the shower doors were a little funky and we would end up with a huge puddle on the floor. The breakfast bar was great. Lots to choose from. Was not too crazy about the lunch menu, not a lot of choices, plus had fish on two occasions and it was extremely salt . Also lots off birds show up at breafast, not a fan. Nice beach. Clean rooms. The duvet was a nice touch and the bed was very comfortable .
The location was perfect as a over night stay after our cruise.the front desk was on top of things, right down to making sure we had a taxi at 5:00AM to take us to he airport. Nothinh
We truly enjoyed the Accra Hotel. The location is great! We were steps away from the boardwalk. There are stores and restaurants in the immediate area. Transportation was 100 steps away. This hotel is very convenient. The housekeeping staff was very efficient. The grounds were well kept. It was truly a good experience. The beach was perfect We didn't care that much for the food and it was a little pricey.
The hotel was quite aged. The room the put me in seemed very old. The ac was not working properly and it had a view of the dirt lot next door. When I checked my reservation I realized I'd actually paid for a room with a balcony and this did not have one so I called down to the front desk, they did not seem happy about this call but when someone came back they said they had a room for me. So they put me in a smaller room on the first floor, facing the street, but it did have a working ac and a balcony. Just not what I was expecting for the rate I paid! Everything seemed old, worn down and dingy.
The hotel is located on one of the best beaches in Barbados and there is beach-side food and drink service for guests. We loved hanging out at the swim-up bar in the afternoons and the bartenders are very attentive and knowledgeable. The front desk staff was very helpful with coordinating taxis and tours. The hotel itself is a little run down/outdated. The lounge chairs by the pool are mildewed, the paint at the swim-up bar is chipped/peeling, and the tiles throughout are a bit dated. Also my friend Cari used the spa one day for a facial and said it was good/fair, but she had an entire second day of massage, manicure and pedicure that was cancelled on her without notice. She had asked to just re-schedule the massage for another time/day and instead all of the services were cancelled. When she tried to re-book them, she was told there was no one there to do the services. Not sure if the spa techs are just on call or what? The spa seems to be disorganized and poorly run. Also $70 US for 2 people to eat at the buffet seemed high for the quality.
beautiful grounds, great beach, wonderful room the bed was terrible, way too hard. We were ready to bring our family reunion there until we slept on the the bed.
The beach was perfect - and the staff were very friendly.
Climate, resort, friednliness:) Balcony and balcony doors were not clean.
One receptionist, Katrina, was quite above average. Fast and friendly. For a three hours longer stay in the room on the day of departure I had to pay 75 US dollars. The hotel was not fully booked though!!!
The hotel is beachfront, nicely laid out, comfy, clean. It does not protect the guests from taxi overcharging - the only country I've been to (and I've been to many) where taxi fare from the airport to the hotel is cheaper than from the hotel to the airport!! Taxi overall is expensive, and there are no cheaper alternatives for families. Ocean waves were all the time too choppy to swim. Hotel could use renovation.
They have two resturatants. The Waters Edge is the best restaurant on the island. There other restaurant is possible the worst. You have to request a room that you like. they will try to put you in room that has no view. so just simply request better room and they will review vacancies and put you in wonderful room.This is not a complaint but just heads up.
Pleasant staff, quick and efficient service, nice beach. The restuarant had very ordinary offerings re food...water's edge is deff not as advertised...food very ordinary and appears to be made in advance but the staff very pleasant and good service.
We just returned from a trip to Barbados and thoroughly enjoyed the Bougainvillea Beach Resort. This was our second year visiting the resort and we found the room, service and staff to be excellent. The resort is ideally located near St. Lawrence Gap and has beautiful grounds and views of the ocean.
Very relaxing, every night they have some events to entertain. Staff are all lovely and kind but not too disturbing. Also it is very clear it cares about environment which is the best thing I see in such a resort island. Bed cover (top duvet and pillow) are not washed ages and smell bad. Hope they can clean it more often.
relaxing all rooms close to the beach n staff very helpful need another restaurant that is high end
Really friendly staff, good amenities and nice location
The view from the balcony is to die for!! We stayed on the 3rd floor of this 4-story hotel and had a wonderful view. The location is good if you are looking for something near restaurants and bars that you can walk to, but far enough away to not hear it. Be sure to walk down the beach to Carib Bar & Grill--Great moderately priced casual beachfront restaurant. I only have 3 complaints: 1. They only had 5 beach chairs available (for a hotel with 36 or so rooms, that seemed like a very small amount). 2. All the pillows on the beds smelled like a mildewy towel. I had to smell all of them to find just one that didn't make me gag. But it was hardly something to complain about. 3. No free Internet. The rooms were immaculately clean--huge bath area with double sink and walk-in shower. The hotel staff is very friendly, like all Barbadians we encountered. We loved the full kitchen. Be sure to go the grocery store down the side street from the one on the main street. The one on the main street is...
We stayed for 2 weeks. The hotel was much nicer than we had expected. The staff were very friendly and extremely helpful. The room was great lots of space to unpack for a 2 week stay. Lovely view and great beach. Thank you Coral Sands
Hotel was substandard. Guest services was helpful with information but hotel is old and not well maintained. Free activites listed on website were not available as described. Hard to get person to book this with. Pool closed at 6:00 so not swimming/Beach access was locked up at 7:00 so not able to stroll along the beautiful beaches. Drinks are in 4oz cup so didn;t feel like I was being catered to or even on vacation- no drink hotesses either. Would recommend Hotel next door - Boungavilla hotel! Food was bad even though it was included would have rather gone to restaurants. Music plays till 11:30 each night so unable to sleep. Rent umbrellas, deposit for towels - front desk only open till 6:00 - all is all it was an uncomfortable hotel if you want to be pampered or even general service. Hot water 50/50 chance of getting. Location is good. Beach is great! That's about it!
MY HUSBAND AND BARBADOS BEACH CLUB THIS SEPTEMBER FOR OUR 2ND ANNIVERSARY!! WE ARE STILL TALKING ABOUT IT AND WANT TO GO BACK NEXT YEAR! THE STAFF WAS AMAZING THE ROOM WAS EXCELLENT AND CLEAN THE FOOD WAS GREAT AND IN GENERAL AN OVERALL WONDERFUL PLACE TO STAY!! THE PEOPLE OF BARBADOS WERE SO FRIENDLY AND WE ALWAYS FELT WELCOME. THE AIRPORT IS ABOUT 20 MINUTES AWAY AND EASY TO CATCH THE BUS AND PICK UP IT ONLY COST 2BDS.
NOT SATISFIED,hotel room stinks,bath tub was so small i could not take a bath,not enough wash cloth,towels was lod and dingy
The Hotel is run down and not well maintained at all. The pictures on the advertisement are NOT what it looks like. The food is terrible and no hot water for showers. Hotel and staff not very friendly or willing to make it an enjoyable stay. Please do not waste you're money at this place like we did, spend the extra money and stay at a better place!!!!!!
It was me and my wifes first trip to Barbados and we stayed at the Barbados Beach Club. It is a beautiful hotel on the beach and the staff are very friendly. The location is perfect and the hotel is very nice. We loved it and would definately consider returning.
This hotel is run down and nothing like what is advertised. The hotel staff was friendly, only because they are threatened by their SLUM LORD owner who is a real piece of work. The ammenities were terrible and the food was discusting. No hot water for 4 of the 7 days we were there,,when we complained,,,He (SLUM LORD) called us liars. The pictures advertised for this place are old, and show it when it was new. The maintenance is terrible,,it's run down and falling apart. Please DO NOT STAY HERE,and waste your money like we did....spend the extra money...and stay at the HILTON.

My husband and I recently stayed at barbados beach club and had a great time. The staff were all friendly and helpful and the food was pretty good too. The hotel itself is clean although the rooms could use an upgrade in decor. All in all we cant wait to go back.
This was my first trip to Barbados and it was awesome. I stayed in this hotel with a couple of friends and we had an excellent experience. The staff was friendly and very accomodative and the food was good. The rooms were really comfortable ideal for families, groups and couples alike. I would recommend it for vacationers who are looking for value for money.
