We booked this hotel three weeks in advance and we couldn't have been happier With only 24 rooms - all overlooking the ocean- and all meals included - it was a relaxing, low key experience. In fact for our 1 week stay we only left the property twice- once for a trip to Bridgetown and one for a guided snorkelling...

We have just returned from a two week stay at this wonderful hotel. As previous reviews have mentioned, there are only 24 rooms, all with a wonderful sea view. We stayed on the 4th floor and, yes it was a hike to your room, but well worth it for the view and also it was a little quieter there. There...

The Soco is a real gem of the island that delivers impeccable service and ultra clean, modern, laid back accommodations. The hotel is special because of its ultra attentive staff who deliver heartfelt attention to guests. The Soco staff is more like extended family and they truly made me fall in love with the island! Thank you to each and...

We were thoroughly spoilt at this all inclusive boutique hotel. Loved the view from our balcony of the sea, especially as two friendly turtles seemed to spend every morning just outside. Michelle is the colourful 'hostess with the mostest' and can organise absolutely anything, with a smile and a giggle. Try to go for a birthday or anniversary treat as...

This boutique hotel has it all. Beautiful oceanfront rooms, lovely pool, great beach where you can even swim with the sea turtles. Service was excellent and staff so friendly. With only 24 rooms it is never crowded and easy to strike up a conversation. I found the drinks and food delicious and they would always try and accommodate you. The...

We had a great time at our stay at the SoCo Hotel. Staff was pleasant and attentive, food was great, and beaches were beautiful! Highly recommend if your looking for a nice and relaxing getaway! Probably not the place if you are looking for a wild time.

This is our 3rd visit to the Soco. We love the whole experience. Location, food and accommodation. Planning next years stay already. Boardwalk in front of the hotel is a bonus. Lovely pre breakfast walk each morning.

This is primarily a foodie review but I can summarise the hotel as follows: Rooms - ok, not bothered by traffic noise but our balcony doors didn't lock, so you could move the left door even if the lock was active. The plugs either side of the bed didn't work, so we had a bit of scheduling to do to...

Arrived 3rd January to a warm breeze and cool cocktail on the terrace. The Soco is a boutique hotel with 26 rooms. The rooms are cool and spacious with a balcony. All rooms have an amazing sea view. This didn't affect us, however had heard others say that the road that is at the front of the hotel is noisy....

We wanted a small boutique hotel where the food wasn't all from a buffet, and the hotel met our expectations. Lovely location right by the sea and with the boardwalk, which we used every day, starting in front of the hotel. Room was fine with the balcony facing the sea the highlight, although the toiletries were a little more basic...
