Just back from a three night stay here and we had a really relaxing time. The room was pretty and spacious with an amazing view that we could appreciate through the two chairs outside on the veranda. It was good to have a fridge and kettle as well as small kitchen area. No need for air conditioning and the fan...

Dear Guest, Thank you for your lovely review. The team at Sea-U aims to make the Bathsheba Experience once to remember! I hope we can welcome you again.

With just 12 rooms or so the Sea-U captures the essence of Bathsheba, perched up a hillside with views over the endless rolling waves pounding the rugged coast. The rooms are nicely designed, have aircon if you need it although the breezes cool the place adequately. There are two buildings each with two floors with shared verandas facing the ocean....

We stayed here for three nights, the views are breathtaking and exactly as the pictures show. You come to Bathsheba to see the more natural side of the island, so if this is not for you, do your research. My boyfriend surfs so it was perfect for him, and the staff were all wonderful! The breeze and the sound of...

Very peaceful boutique hotel which held up to the photos and description. Wanted to see this coast and relax after a 7 day cruise. So different from where we stayed the week before on the West Coast, and it was just what we wanted. Enjoyed walking along the beach, then relaxing on our deck, with hammock, books in the room,...

Just back from a one night stay at this little gem of a guesthouse on the East Coast. We have a holiday home on the West Coast but felt that it might be a nice change to stay a night in Bathsheba with our grown up son during this vacation. We selected Sea U a few months ago and the...

This place is on the east coast which offers scenic views. The guest house is basic with a bed and small kitchen. The breakfasts were good. They have an honor system for alcohol which was fine with us. There are only a few units with ac but we didn't have one and sleeping was fine. Choice of restaurants is limited...

I find it hard to rate Sea-U. It markets itself as a bit of a boutique hotel in some ways, a B&B in others and in presenting itself on AirBnB (where I first found it) as a home from home. It is definitely not a boutique hotel. It is equally not a home from home. It is a B&B with...

We dubbed this "Mosquito Manor." If you're a young, surfer backpacker dude on a budget you may like this. Otherwise stay away. We chose our room because it was one of the few with an air conditioner but the unit did not cool the whole room. It was like a stuffy prison - bars on the high windows, never got...

Sea-U diligently caters to adults across all echelons. It's unfortunate to read that you were dissatisfied. The room you occupied (Cottage Apartment) is admired for its distinctive features and guest most love it's private patio. The AC unit works perfectly and as it was explained to you while on property, the hot water was indeed working, as we all realized...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
A chic and affordable bed & breakfast at the lush east coast. Sea-U is tucked within a lush tropical garden along the seaside slopes of the village of Bathsheba on the east coast of Barbados, the most natural side of the island. Here you can enjoy unspoiled beaches, breathtaking views and mingle with locals. Uschi Wetzels, owner and manager and fell in love with Bathsheba and its friendly people, while working on a Barbados travel guide for a German editor. With hammocks strung between coconut palms, the Atlantic Ocean waves breaking against massive limestone boulders. Sea-U is a place for those who are looking for a decidedly significant change of pace from a busy life. The main house and the cottage are built in a traditional island style out of wood with large patios. The 10 rooms and apartments are decorated with mahogany furniture, louver window treatments, rattan chairs, locally handcrafted clay lamps and batik art. Sea-U's welcoming staff provides knowledgeable information. The atmosphere is relaxed, and guests quickly become friends. Green Globe certified, close to Andromeda Botanical Gardens and world class surfing at Soup Bowl. ... more   less
